Hatteberg isn't a "Randa-type" player by any comparison. He lacks Randa's skills both from a defensive and offensive standpoint. This trade doesn't help the defense at all--it takes away an awful defensive outfielder and replaces him with a sub-par defensive outfielder, and adds a sub-par defensive first baseman to along with an awful defensive second baseman. A team *truly* concerned about defense would have Kearns in right, Denorfia in center, and Junior in left, with Dunn honing his skills as a first baseman and Freel manning second base. That would also, coincidentally, provide the Reds with their strongest possible offensive lineup.
