This is a good move IMO. Boone will be better than Larson at second. If Larson stays with the Reds, he will hit (and RH's too !) Thus, offensively we have traded Walker for Larson, not bad inmy opinion, but obviously BL is not a tested commodity. There is no way LArkin will ever move.period.
The flip-side of this is defense of course, and this will be a big concern with our CURRENT pitching staff. I just hope that this changes soon and Jimbo goes out and gets somebody (even Suppan) to off-set the loss of Elmer.
