Re: Reds sign Emmanuel Burriss
Reds have TWO backup infield spots up for grabs. Cairo's spot. Valdez's spot.
The Cairo spot has to hit. A non-shortstop backup infielder. Has to hit.
The Valdez, middle infield spot doesn't have to hit too much. His main ability is to play SS well.
I'm not sure Burriss fills either role. Not sure he is a true shortstop. Certainly doesn't hit like a Cairo type.
Of course - if the Cairo guy can field, and the Valdez guy can hit, all the better.
Didi could be the Valdez replacement. But I'd rather see him with regular at bats at AAA.
