Re: Reds fielding calls about Alonso
The thing about Alonso is that you really don't know what you have. Will he turn out to be Sean Casey, or a Paul Konerko with a little higher OBP? The wrist injury probably won't be 100% until next year. Right now, its too soon to tell.
Someone mentioned an intriguing idea earlier: Grandal. If Mes is for real, Grandal could be looking at a position change. 1B may be an option.
Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.
