Re: 19 rbis for encarnacion
This is one of the few guys that never really clicked in Cincy.
After Aaron, we had no real "sure-fire" guy until Edwin was anointed. And, to be fair, he was a LITTLE glove deficient. When he played butcher-boy at the bag, it got into his head. That trickled over to the plate... and... well, he did a fist pump and ran out of Dusty's office when he heard he was one a one-way to Toronto, eh?
I wish he would have become a 10 year cornerstone. Same with DeAngelo Jimenez, Cody Ross, Juan Francisco, and Brandon Larsen. However, these guys just never came to fruition here... or at all.
So, I'm on the Rolen bus. I know Frazier will be a five year guy once the elder statesman steps down.
