I try to think about players only between the lines, but in Delmon's case, I don't think I would want him after what he did in NYC last year (and I am not even Jewish).
Furthermore, if the Reds are going to add an outfielder now, I would prefer to add a good glove in CF. Delmon is resigned to the corners and he does not know how to take a walk. I honestly feel like Delmon is Chris Heisey with a bad attitude. My vote is to pass.
