    Ideas for new defense alignment ... Dunn to SS .. Griffey to 3B

    What do you think? I think both would fit well in the position. We need to improve our infield defense and we could have more speed in the OF by putting Lopez and Encarnacion out there.

    You should really add the <sarcasm></sarcasm> tags to such statements.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Is that goal to be the worst D in the history of the majors?

    I think your idea should not proceed further than this thread.

    That said, I'll turn to you the next time I need some "out of the box" thinking.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    They said the telephone and the lightbulb was a crazy idea that would never work also.

    Personally, I was always partial to the seven centerfielders at once strategy.
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    Ideas for new defense alignment:
    Move the team to the AL so that whoever the worst defender is can become the DH.

    By the way, did the Reds' defense improve any in the Tigers' home yard?

    assuming this was a legit thread. What I'd do is this.

    1st- Hatteberg/Aurilla
    2nd- Edwin E.
    3rd- FeLo
    SS- Phillips
    CF- Kearns
    RF- Griffey
    LF- Dunn
    C- Whoever.

    I might flip flop Griffey and Dunn, I'm not sure.
    I'm East of you. Be very very worried. Not quite OBX. But, be worried.
