it's not like he'd block a hot prospect.
Nor is it like he improves the team defense very much at all, he provides bat on the ball skills with flashes of power. But he's slower than most and had a few leg injuries last year making his range even more questionable.
It's his role (and ability to accept it) plus salary that makes me question why he's even being considered.
If the Reds devoted as much time to other matters on the club as they seem to have devoted to Rich then I'd be able to shrug off the weekly Aurilia Updates, however I get the vibe that somehow Dan prefers to tackle the easier questions first.
