If he'll accept a role as a bench player, at greatly reduced salary, to make a run at a WS ring, great, he'd be a huge veteran presence.
Unfortunately, the Duhsty would have to be talked into using him that way, Huge risk that he doesn't. Duhsty loves him some crunchy vets, and gives struggling guys starts even when there are better options available - see Cairo, Miguel.
I'd rather we got a solid SS backup, not sure we have anyone on the current squad capable of spelling Cozart. IMO, he is the wild card to this season - he needs to get fully recovered and back to his pre-injury upside. If he can hit in the lower parts of the order, and stay healthy, we literally have NO weaknesses.

I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008
Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
