I think you hit it on the head.
That line in AA isn't "promotion worthy". I think Walt is ready to cash this totally redundant chip in.
I personally will be hoping he succeeds!
Although he is WAY too much to give up for David DeJesus, I would totally send Alonso to KC for DJ and Alex Gordon!
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
