Re: As expected, Hamilton to center for 2013
Kind of interesting the comment he made about Didi.. I wonder if part of the reasoning is that they see Didi as part of the longterm plan?
Of course, the Reds were making comments (and showing it by action) that they appeared to want Alonso part of the long term plan as well.
I agree that moving Billy to CF makes a lot of sense. Honestly.. I almost wonder now if the club will not make a move for CF. It's easy for us to say.. get a 1 year FA stopgap. But most FA CF that are better than Stubbs are probably going to want a multiyear deal. It might make more sense to just use Stubbs/Heisey for at least the first half of 2013 (or whenever Billy is ready).
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
