By a few you mean exactly 2. 1 in 1993, 1 in 1998.
If Griffey needs to remain in CF, then so be it. He's earned that right in his career to say where he wants to play. Freel to LF probably is an upgrade over Dunn, and Dunn ironically enough has the best defensive stats of anyone who's played some 1B for the Reds (yes, even better than the pickin machine...). B Phil at 2B should be his to lose now. If he slumps, plug Freel back in there, and then we can use one of our 78574935 scrappy vets off the bench to fill in until B Phil returns.
I'm still more concerned about Lopez at SS. Offensively, he's a young stud. Defensively, he's the WMP of SS.
