    I'm tellin' ya...Dunn's gonna move back to LF and your favorite and mine, Mr. Rich Aurilia, is going to be our new 1B.

    Now i'm not crazy about Hatteberg being the everyday 1B, but strictly from an offensive stand, those numbers are remarkable Casey-esque.
    If Hatteberg puts up numbers like those, I'll be very pleased.

    Re: Gammons: Scouts worried about Reds Defense.

    I can't believe that Dunn is a worse first baseman than he is an outfielder. For years I've lamented his inability -- or unwillingness -- to go back on (catchable, IMHO) fly balls.

    OTOH, I've seen him bring his outfielder's glove to the SS position during ST BPs (beside Larkin usually) and make some nifty snags of grounders, even backhanded and even on bad hops.

    I realize there's more to it than fielding grounders, but stick him at 1B for more more than one ST and for more than one regular season and he'll prove to be cause fewer problems there than in LF, IMHO -- in addition to opening up an OF spot for a legitimate fly chaser equipped with better glove, arm, tracking skills, and wheels.

    If Soriano can be shifted to an unfavorite position, ...

    Re: Gammons: Scouts worried about Reds Defense.

    let's see-- it's a HR era and we're worried that we won't get enough glove from our first baseman?

    I'll bite: I'm worried that our relief pitchers won't steal enough bases and that we don't have enough utility players

    Re: Gammons: Scouts worried about Reds Defense.

    Is this our next 1B?

    From the Denver Post:
    (Ryan Shealy) has great character, is a tireless worker and a nifty fielder, hit .330 in 36 big-league games last season and provides protection should Helton's back flare up again.

    Shealy is likely to begin the season on the disabled list or with Triple-A Colorado Springs. Rockies general manager Dan O'Dowd has no immediate plans to shop Shealy but didn't rule out a future trade.

    A team such as Cincinnati, with Scott Hatteberg at first base, could have a place for Shealy. Boston and Cleveland had expressed interest, but there is no fit for Shealy at this point. The Indians are happy with Ben Broussard and Eduardo Perez.

    Dunn's a man who likes to move. He doesn't want to be tied down to a bag, waiting to scoop up throws from fellow infielders.

    "You don't move enough at first base," he said. "At least once, twice or three times a game, you run after balls and it kind of loosens you up. But when you first get to the bag, you just stand around. I just don't build up a good sweat over there."
    Adam Took a page from Ned Williamson when he balked at the move this winter, mostly because he liked to "run it out" in the outfield.

    The question is, should they be?

    He's not an old vet so no he can't be

    If the D were such a concern then JR being moved to LF or RF should have been issue 1.
