    I guess anything goes as long as Dunn doesn't play 1B?

    I'm glad he didn't play in the WBC so he could get time in at 1B. Besides, with Randy Winn and Matt Holliday, the US squad is set anyways............
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I think if you switch Jr for Freel and Hatteberg for Aurillia, that's your Opening Day lineup vs RH pitchers.

    Going to be interesting to see how they work this, but I don't think Dunn will see more than 50% of his starts at 1B this year, at least that's what I'm gathering from his lack of playing time there this spring.

    Or shocasing Freel in Center

    How many games has Dunn played at 1B this spring?

    The lack of time Dunn has spent at 1st is a little curious.

    Perhaps he's already fielding the position at a J.T. Snow level?

    Hopefully it's just that they don't think he needs the time there.

    Though I did read that he's still working every day with Chambliss on 1B, which was one of the reasons he didn't make the road trip to Ft. Myers.

    After reading that, I was still left wondering why he doesn't actually play that position more often. You'd think that they would want to see how much all his work with Chambliss is paying off, and you just don't know until he's actually playing the position in a game situation.

    The whole thing is a headscratcher.

    I figured he's practicing at it every day. But you just can't always simulate game conditions in practice even though the Reds are probably doing the best they can. Right now, it's not a big deal since he'd only play 3-4 innings anyway but if he's playing OF or DH more often beginning next week, that's when something might be up.

    Something seems to be brewing. With the Kata signing and what is going on with Dunn and all the utility guys. I have no idea, but it just seems some kind of move is on the horizon. Wily Mo gone? Who knows.
    And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!
