Re: 2011 looking back, September callups and looking forward to 2012
I was thinking about this last night. One of the best Reds teams defensively was the 1999 team. A team that saw Greg Vaughn play 153 games, 144 in LF and Dmitri Young play 91 games in the OF, 75 in RF!
So, maybe, just maybe Alonso's defense in LF is not quite as important as some, myself included, make it out to be.
“I’ll just take my walk,” he said, to laughter. One reporter followed up that Hamilton might be able to score from first on a single. “If he does, that’s great. Isn’t that crazy? Think about that: I hit a single and got an RBI. Like I said, crude stat, right?”
