Re: Hatteberg signed
I like this signing as long as Hatteberg is viewed as a backup. He gets on base at a decent rate (.356 career), but his GiDP numbers last year were Casey-like (22) and his power is in decline (also Casey-like). If he sits on the bench to spell Dunn and the occasional outfielder or to pinch hit, I like what he brings to the bench. If he is viewed as an insurance player at 1B that will allow a later trade of an OF'er or Dunn, I like the signing a lot less.
