    IMO, the Reds in no way have the pitching to justify moving EE from 3B in the name of contending this year.

    How do we know he'd be a good 1st baseman?
    Off the top of my head, George Scott, Dan Driessen, Steve Garvey,and Albert Pujols all made the move and proved to be Gold Glove caliber fielders. It isn't an uncommon move for young third basemen.

    IMO, the Reds in no way have the pitching to justify moving EE from 3B in the name of contending this year.
    This front office and ownership has shown they want to contend. I believe Encarnacion would get more at bats and feel less pressure if he were to move to first. Why isn't he not starting tonight versus the Cards? I bet it has more to do with those errors a than his bat.

    It's because we have a manager/GM? who love old guys, same reason Q is still on the roster.

    EE will be a fine 3rd baseman, trashing the future on a win now plan will lead to big time failure

    IMO

    That's working out well isn't it?

    Well, hopefully the infield defense improves. Surely, it can't get get any worse.

    Aint that the truth.

    If Edwin had made the throwing error RA did in the first inning Marty would still be harping on it.
