If the Reds were to acquire him, he'd deserve to play everyday in LF (his splits against righties and lefties are nearly identical, so he doesn't need to be platooned). In this scenario, Dickerson would then move to and take over CF. However, we all know that won't happen because of Taveras' two year contract.
However, even if Dickerson were to waste away on the bench if we added Willingham, it means McDonald goes back to AAA (I'm lovin' it!).
