In defense of the article's writer, I do think the Reds have a real shot at carrying 3 catchers. Valentin also plays 1b, and with Dunn basically a rookie at the position, the Reds may want to go with 3 catchers allowing Valentin to play 1b if they want to put Dunn in the OF or let him sit. Also, if Kearns, Pena or Griffey get hurt (hard to believe that may happen), Dunn could go back to the Of and Valentin could play 1b.
