You look at that and it suggests that Denorfia should become the OF starter and Dunn stays at 1st.
But that isn't going to happen. And THAT is what pisses me off the most. Can anyone here answer me why you play Womack and Hatteberg when this team was going nowhere, anyway, this year. Denorfia should be playing and Dunn should be at 1B. At worst, Freel in the OF, but Denorfia makes the most sense if you are going to make this trade!
Cedric put it well when he said:
Why is Arroyo worth the risk of trading Pena now? Do you really care about winning 75 games instead of 65? I'd rather give Pena a chance for a big early start and then flip him for something that could help later this season. What's the big rush in going from extremely crappy to still very crappy?
