    Not that I don't think he could do it, but he's played all of 2 innings there in his career.

    Does Denorfia play CF? I would move Jr to LF, Dunn to first freel and Deno in CF
    have Phillips at 2b with Aurillia as back up

    Kearns would make the best 1b of the lot. Of course he is probably also our best OF.

    that's true, he's played there a lot less then I thought.

    I still think that it would be better for his career if he'd consider it.

    LF - Dunn
    CF - Freel
    1B - Jr.

    Yeah, he's by far the outfielder on the team.

    I've "warmed" to the idea of moving Dunn to 1B solely for two reasons....

    #1 - Freel everday in this lineup. Where? OF (his natural position).
    #2 - Phillips everyday in this lineup at 2B. He's gonna improve our INF "D", and even with the "growing pains", I look at the potential with EE (3B), Lopez (SS), and Phillips (2B). We gotta give this Phillips kid a shot. Alot of fans are kinda peeved in Cleveland that they let him go.

    But Freel at 1B? Does EE and Lopez need a smaller target? Lets cut these kids some slack!

    But Dunn does not want to play 1B.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Reds seem to have a good feeling about Phillips and with his production why not let the kid loose. Edwin has the role at third and lopez short (could be the future infield) Freel, as well as he is doing will have to relieve CF back to Griffey, and freel will go back to the utility role. This is the reds we are talking about, injuries will happen. The other choice is to trade freel maybe for a descent reliever.

    Also, I think Phillips ha smore potential to be a long-term answer at second than does Freel, so I would play him there. There's NO reason, however, that either Junior or Dunn couldn't move to first, other than their own personal dislike of the move.

    Three things about this arrangement:

    1) Junior will provide better defense in LF than Dunn.
    2) Dunn will provide better defense at 1B than Junior, who has never played there.
    3) Junior and some team physicians believe that the stretching and lunging he would have to do at 1B would actually be harder on Junior's legs than the running he does in the OF.

    I have been a proponent of moving Junior to 1B for two or three years now, but it looks like it just won't happen for a while.

    I don't think any of this will happen. Freel will not be a regular starter when the team is healthy.

    He will play a lot of centerfield and second base, resting Griffey and Phillips. If there is an injury, things will be juggled to get Freel some steady work.

    I also don't think Denorfia will be up real soon, unless there are injuries or trades.
