DING DING DING!!!
I think Walt is showcasing him, and would rather trade him than put a Dunn-Lite in LF for the Big Club.
Alonso's future in ML is at DH IMO.
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
