    what about the logical 4th OF of Denorfia?(who should not have been sent down). Then Freel could play 2B and Womack could grab some bench. Then again a smart GM would release him.

    He won't get consistent at bats in MLB, but he will in AAA.

    If it comes to a point where we need an outfielder to play everyday, Deno will befroe McCracken.

    with the health track records of Kearns and Jr, Denorfia would likely get plenty of bats and he would get even more if the current stupidity revolving around 2B wasn't there. The kid is ready for the majors, playing down in AAA is proving nothing when he can really help the major league team.

    You're right, but we are the Reds. We always have too many outfielders.

    I only count two healthy ones(Dunn and Kearns). Freel should be playing 2nd and Mccracken shouldn't even be on a major league roster.

    He played his way on in Spring Training. And like I said I will take him over Abad any day. No need to let Deno rot on the bench in MLB, keep him sharp in AAA.

    Like you said he will most likely be needed by the end of the year.

    spring training doesn't mean squat when you have the track record that McCracken has. He is a AAAA player and at age 35 he is the one who should be playing in Louisville and should only be used as a last option.

    Not mpressed by Wayne K. He brings in guys the QM, SH CH and leaves Womack on the roster and yet makes no effort to bring in some players who might actually help.

    I disagree and you know why.

    If not Denorfia then who else would you pick?

    The Reds bench is pretty weak. Look at 1999, the Reds had Jeffrey Hammonds and Dmitri Young on the bench. In 2000 it was Alex Ochoa and Michael Tucker. 1995, Mark Lewis and his .408 OBP and Jerome Walton, Eric Anthony, and Thomas Howard. 1992, Glenn Braggs, Bip Roberts and Billy Hatcher. 1990, Hal Morris, Glenn Braggs and Herm Winningham. In every season that the Reds have won, there has been more than one guy who could come off of the bench and change the direction of the game.

    When you look at the Reds bench right now, who can you trust to have a game changing effect? Ryan Freel and...? I suppose if Milton and Arroyo start pinch hitting, they could become the top three bench guys on this team.
