Re: Yonder Alonso
If a splashy trade doesn't make it happen, the Reds will take a chance on some FA left-handed outfielder who inexplicably is still available late in the off-season. That will be your platoon partner for Gomes.
Not saying Alonso shouldn't be tried more in left in AAA. He should. It makes him that much more of a trading chip if he has more than one position. Still, it's unrealistic to think of Alonso as anything other than a first bagger.
I have a love-hate relationship with Albert Pujols. Mostly hate.
