Created about 29 runs, with a .271 GPA and acquiring .505 bases per PA.
But I thought about it, and the Reds can get this same production out of Encarnacion, who's probably the same caliber defender.
So after thinking about it, he's probably not what the team needs right now. Problem is, I'm not sure there are really any quality third basemen available. Garrett Atkins is a major risk right now. Mark DeRosa is not much different than what's on the team.
