I would grant you that Keppinger was awful at SS with the Reds and with Phillips at 2B, there just wasn't much room for him in Cincy.
In my opinion, it's hard to see how the Sutton move was good for Cincy.
He was an unneeded cog due for a raise into 7-digit category, and he would've blocked the progress of guys like Paul Janish, Juan Francisco, etc.
