Re: Gammons: Scouts worried about Reds Defense.
I don't remember when it was, exactly, maybe back in '04, but I remembered looking at a Reds lineup and thinking, "except for the catcher, every single guy is playing out of position."
If Krivsky's ongoing roster makeover starts with putting the biggest bats in the places where they're most comfortable and dealing with the other positions in turn, then I can live with that. It's not unreasonable to look at Dunn and say "he doesn't like first, he doesn't play it all that well, leave him alone and I'll deal with first base some other way." Instead of playing square pegs/round holes indefinitely, Krivsky will attempt to find better defensive fits, and unlike with O'Brien, there's a chance it'll be done in our lifetimes.
Of course, comfort doesn't infer excellence, and the Griffey problem will have to be addressed at some point.
