    Re: Hatteberg signed

    How about this scenario:

    The Reds are still negotiating with Dunn on a contract. He has stated that he prefers to play the OF. Maybe that's one of the hangups to signing him long term. The Reds bring in Hatteberg to play 1B, and tell Adam he will move back to the OF for the duration of his new contract. Hatteberg is signed to 1 year because he's the only 1B option worth a crap out there right now. That gives the Reds 1 year to find a long term replacement. Maybe the LA deal with Milton and WMP for Choi and Perez is actually being discussed with Choi being one option for Krivsky long term?

    sigh. Chip, how quickly you forget.

    FeLo's numbers dwarfed RA's out of ST. He out hit, out defended, flat out played RA.

    Who was the starting SS on opening day again?

    I think both Kearns and Pena left enough questions in the minds of the Reds FO that SH could force one of them to the bench. I'm not saying it will happen, just that it has.

    Randa was brought in when there was no need. Freel could have manned 3B until EE was ready. RA was brought in to BACKUP the SS position. He ended up starting.

    I'm just saying AK and Pena better have a good ST this year.

    Barring a trade, I think that WMP and AK have to play every day even if they have a horrible spring b/c if they do bomb in spring training then that's an even bigger reason why you've to give them every opportunity to pull it together, even if just to increase their trade value which, right now, is probably just about as low as it has ever been.

    If we come out of ST with Kearns and Pena on the bench and Hatteberg starting then the Reds are the dumbest team on the planet.

    But then you're just ignoring the fact that WK is banking on Kearns and said he talked to him yestreday and they both agree it's time for him to shine.

    But then that would be too non grassy knoll for some ya'll.

    I think everyone agrees it's time for him to shine. Whether he will and whether he's with the Reds all that long either way are the real questions.

    Yet another WK quote

    Wayne Krivsky, former Twins assistant general manager, was interested in Hatteberg even before he was hired as the Reds' general manager Wednesday.

    "We wanted to add to our depth," Krivsky said. "This guy's a true professional, somebody I've had my eye on in the offseason here in the event I did get this job. The playing time will take care of itself."

    Speaking of that, who did the Reds get for Joe Randa last year? I'm drawing a blank.
