According to ESPN.com, it looks like the Red Sox are trying to move JT, since he is getting no playing time with Youklis (sp?) and others getting the time at 1B.
I think this would be an excellent pickup for the Reds, any glove man we can get would be a major upgrade, and JT is certainly that. Any offense he gives up would be gravy, and the runs he would save in the field would be a big plus.
Im certainly not anti-Hatteberg, but getting JT, negates the whole Adam at first base thing. I love the guy, but lets face it, hes "Iron Glove" almost anywhere he plays.
Plus it would give us better bench depth to have either Hatteberg or Snow as a pinch hitter every day.
And hes relatively cheap for a player with his seniority (2M a year)
