    I'd say keeping McCracken over Ross when we needed to make room on the roster isn't looking so good.

    Ross has a juicy line ---- .208/.283/.377/.660

    That's good enough to be the Redszone Pinata for quite some time.

    I'd take 8 dingers and great D off the bench over what the Reds have gotten from McCracken, Hollandsworth, and every other member of the Reds' bench rogue's gallery.

    The guy's a bench player; in my world, a guy with a little bit of pop who plays a variety of positions is a very valuable 25th guy.

    He's having Reggie Taylor's 2003 season, and whenever he has a hit there's a post about him, if he was on the Reds he'd be dog meat.

    That's how I see it.

    Reggie Taylor's 2003 was pretty good for a bench player. Just because others wouldn't appreciate him, doesn't mean he hasn't been better than Hopper, Denorfia, Hollandsworth, McCracken, Wise, Castro.

    Yeah, Darrin Lewis 1995 good, I'll Take Jerome Walton's 1995 instead.

    I was thinking of Taylor's 2002 season. Still, each player in his own place. Everyone liked to pick on Reggie, but guys like him have their uses. There's not a player on the Reds' bench worth a damn, excepting Valentin.

    It's a 25th man, true. But every move counts.

    *I thought Walton 1995 was a true platoon, not a 25th man.

    Wow...Hopper has already incurred your distain? That didn't take long.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    Small sample. Don't really have a true opinion either way.

    So I guess all the bench guys (besides Javi) aren't crap then are they?
