Re: Juan Francisco Promoted to Reds; Jay Bruce Off the DL
You win with players who work the count, have high OBP, get the other teams pitchers to get into deep counts and into the middle relief. That's how you win over an extended period of time, along with great defense and pitching.
If I'm constructing a team Fransico is the type of prospect I trade, while Alonso is the type of keep. There's no room for free swinging, low OBP, bad defensive players on my team.
