    I hear this a lot. But it doesn't become any less false the more it's repeated.

    I agree. You gave Krivsky full credit for Arroyo and Phillips. It's not a matter of a personal bias, you just for the most part disagree with the moves he makes, and sometimes I don't blame you.

    EE and Phillips? Maybe you can be wrong about Hatteberg two years running?

    Re: Alex Gonzalez to the Reds

    The problem with Hatt is, he is old and hasn't put together 2 decent years running. He is also probably going to be injury prone. Griffey is injury prone to and a move to RF won't change that. They need another stick with pop in it and Votto can provide that, thus he is such a huge key. Lineup construction may be important, but so is power.

    Considering the Reds still are looking for another starter and a closer, not much money is left for the bats. Votto probably is a key player in Krivsky's mind if the current offseason progression continues and Krivsky did say he was "impressed" with Votto's raw power................

    The problem that I see is that even if Hat repeats he doesn't give the offense what it needs. BTW Hat's slugging starting in 1998:

    .446, .375, .435, .345, .433, .383, .420, .343, .436.

    I can't say the pattern really means anything, but my expectations fit the pattern. Maybe a stat guru has an explanation.

    Re: Alex Gonzalez to the Reds

    Some comments from SOSH posters since the Red Sox had Gonzalez last season and know all about him. From the comments I've read in the thread pasted below - and the comments I read in the Gold Glove thread when Jeter won it over Gonzalez - most Red Sox fans seemed to love Gonzalez's defensive abilities while hating his offensive game, and none of that is too terribly surprising given what we already know about Gonzalez.

    BTW, Gonzalez was a Type B free agent and Boston will receive a sandwich draft pick in compensation. The signing will not cost the Reds a draft pick.

    Godspeed, Gonzo. Arroyo will benefit from your glove, and I hope you can help push the Reds into the playoff race.

I think his VORP, value over a replacement player as a hitter was practically zero this last year. And his games played the last 3 years have gone like this. 159 in 2004, 130 in 2005 and 111 in 2006. Would you want to pay for the next number in that progression?

    I hate to be pessimistic but if Freel doesn't start, I'll bet our newest acquisition hits leadoff.

    Jerry's so infinitely stupid, the leadoff spot will go to the fastest member of the team. I'm assuming Phillips.

    EE is the only plus offensive player on the infield.

    I'll bet you a 12 pack of your favorite beer that Gonzo bats leadoff at least 5 times next season. Phillips is the fastest but he doesn't have that veteranly goodness that Gonzo posseses.

    Re: Alex Gonzalez to the Reds

    Narron had Deno batting leadoff at the end of the year consistantly. That isn't a issue and even Gary Jerry Narron couldn't mess that up.............
