He is DFA'd today, so now he can be picked up for league minimum.
Plus defense and some potential pop.
Let the kids continue to develop playing FT in the minors, versus having them platoon and/or come of the bench - i.e. "let them play everyday".
What do we have to lose in this one?
I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008
Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
