Re: Francoeur to Reds?
I don't think Walt's looking to solve the clean-up spot, I think he's looking to add someone who has the potential to run into one in a pinch-hitting role against a LHP. The only right-handed pop on the bench is usually Mes, who Dusty usually isn't going to use as a pinch hitter. Overall, I'd agree that Robinson would have more value due to his versatility, but if Choo is going to play almost every single inning in CF (which he has), then Robinson's versatility is marginalized. Heisey can play CF the one or two games the rest of the way that Choo needs a break.
