    I've always liked Randa, and for one, am glad he's now a Red.

    Re: Randa

    He is a nice bridge to Encarncion when he should be ready to play the position in 2006.

    As for the outfield, with all the injuries the Reds have had the past couple of seasons, you need to have four outfielders for three positions.

    Re: Randa

    Worst case scenario, in my opinion, with Randa (if healthy) is that he posts very average numbers through the All-Star break and is then sent to the bench for either Freel to take over at 3B full time the remainder of the season or EE to come up and get some experience. Even still, he still should play a better third base than anyone the Reds had planned on playing this year.

    Best case scenario would be that Randa hits well and establishes some trade value in July. He can then be flipped for a prospect and Freel can take over 3B or EE can if he is ready.

    Correct. The question is will the four be: Jr., Dunn, Kearns, and WMP?

    or does Mohr take the spot of one of those 4?

    Re: Randa

    As for the Vazquez for Kearns rumors......I don't see that happening unless the Dodgers are giving the Reds a boatload of cash. And if the Dodgers are sending cash to the Yankees for Ishii, I don't see this deal happening.

    But I do think Kearns is on the move. To where is anyone's guess.

    Would you guys do a Kearns for Jeremy Bonderman trade with the Tigers. I would.

    Graves might actually have some success at Dodger Stadium. But I still wouldn't want to take on Vazquez' salary and arm-mileage.

    Re: Randa

    I would not be opposed to Freel as an everyday second baseman if Jimenez is dealt somewhere, but I'm not anxious to see him at third for any extended period. He gives it all he's got at third, but of all the positions that he can play, he looks less comfortable and natural at third base than anywhere else. In my opinion, his arm isn't dependable enough to be penciled in at third for a long period and is more suited for second. I don't mind the notion of Randa as a bridge to Encarnacion, but I don't know that he is going to be the can't miss that a lot of folks are projecting him to be at this point. I sure hope he is. I really think this will end the Kearns experiment at third.

    .

    Since the beginning of the 2003 season, Randa created 79.54 Runs per 600 TPA while Freel created 80.13 runs per 600 TPA. I just don't see a pressing reason to use resources to sign someone like Randa when there's someone already in-house, especially when the player that is in-house gives the team something it lacks, a legit top of the order guy. Randa is many things, but he's NOT a leadoff hitter.

    The Reds, IMO, are much better off with Freel and Jiminez at the top of the lineup then with Jiminez and Lopez, with Randa in the lower 3rd.
