    The Braves have exactly nothing I want--boy, I hope the Reds don't do something stupid.

    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.
    But could Freel excel as the everyday 3B...he can play it, but I wouldn't say he can play it at a high level every day.

    After 2 years of Brandon Larson/Castro, I'm seeing Randa as a big upgrade.

    Sure, it won't make us a contender, but having someone who can play decent defense and hit ok (yeah, I know, not great) will be nice.

    I think he can be an average 3B. With what he brings on offense, that's good enough for me.

    I'd rather they stick him at one place and leave him there. The only place that's available for them to do that is third.

    if we were talking about a DH, then yes. But we're not. Maybe I'm wrong but I just don't think Freel cuts it defensivley at 3rd base.

    Redread, you're really starting to scare me lately.

    So, if I'm reading this right, they are approximately equal in runs created.

    Randa can field 3b better than Freel, so it's an upgrade, IMO.

    Freel will get plenty of playing time, as he's Miley's boy, don't worry about that.

    Maybe Jimeniz is on his way elsewhere. Just because he was offered arb doesn't mean he'll be on the team on opening day.

    I don't have the stats (other than fielding percentage) to prove it, but 3b seemed to be Freel's worse posistion, by far.

    For what Freel costs, yeah I can live with him on defense at third.

    Bingo. Freel is bad everyday third baseman. He just gives away to many outs over the course of a season.

    His optimal position is 9th man, covering 2B, 3B and the outfield.

    .

    Is Randa's defense going to be worth the difference in cost?

    Good deal for the Reds, trade for a sore-armed pitcher.

    Getting a head start on two New Year's Resolutions? First, you have been so positive it's scary. Second, you spelled Jimenez right :MandJ:

    That is my game plan with Jimenez, to get him signed to a nice $ figure, they did that. Now, if someone is looking for a second baseman with a modest contract, Jimenez is signed, sealed, and tradeable.
