here's the question: what if Lopez and Larkin outplay Larson?
Then the Reds should play Lopez at the hot corner. He played 47 games there is 2001 and was about league average in terms of range factor and fielding percentage.
If he flops, then the Reds can try Larson there. By the time the Reds get a decent look at both guys, Branyan should be back and ready to take his shot if Larson flops too. If all three guys flop, then the Reds are in trouble, but the odds of all three guys being busts is pretty thin.
