    So what do you do now with Aurilia?

    I've come to the conclusion that Aurilia is pretty valuable to this team's offense after The Trade. So what do we do with him now? We have 3 very good hitters in 2 positions, so we aren't getting our best offense out there everyday.

    You decide in the poll.

    Play him at 2B move Phillips to SS and give Clayton EE's old seat at the end of the bench.

    Yep. I'd keep him. What he'd bring in return wouldn't help the Reds more than he himself would.

    trade him if we can get value for him (along with another lesser pitcher) for a #3 pitcher.

    Re: So what do you do now with Aurilia?

    Trade him for whatever you can get of even marginal value. EE is on the upswing and RA is on the downswing [career wise] so let EE grow and produce just as well and maybe get a chip for the future.

    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

    Claytons lack of defense and offense is too important at SS

    I agree with the others Aurilia to 2B, BP at SS and EE at 3B needs to be the everyday lineup. There is no way EE should continue to only get to play only 2 or 3 times a week.

    Narron is pre-caveman, before Abner Doubleday.

    I disagree. I choose to have no statues in the middle infield. I think his lack of range hurts us at 3b, imagine what it'll do at 2B.
