    [QUOTE=dougdirt;1252700]Well, he has shown that he can stay healthy for an entire season. Freel has never done that.


    If Deno played with the ''balls to the wall''style of Freel i'm sure he get his share of bumps and bruises as well.

    Per Rotoworld:

    Josh Hamilton hit the last of five Reds home runs Thursday in a 9-7 win over the Pirates.

    Adam Dunn, Brandon Phillips, Mark Bellhorn and Jeff Keppinger also went deep, but Hamilton's two-run blast over the 30-foot batter's eye in center field reportedly was the most impressive of the shots. He also had a single in four at-bats.

    Did Josh Hamilton just make this team? I'm serious.

    If keeps it up, then he makes the team. His Rule 5 draft status only helps his cause because if he gives Narron any reason to stick around, then he stays. His performance today validates his natural talent and potential, but let's not get too carried away after one game.

    Let's see how he's hitting after the scouting report gets written. For his sake and the Reds sake, I hope it's as well as today.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Sorry, but that makes NO sense.

    What has Denorfia done in the majors or even minors that has showed that he will be a better player than Freel? Nothing. Freel is a good fielder, great base stealer, and most importantly, he has a good OBP. Not to mention, he is our ONLY lead off option. Who would we lead off? Dunn? Hatteberg? I wouldn't count on a rookie to lead off (Deno).
    He steals a nice number of bases but let's not call him great. He was picked off something like 10 times last year and caught stealing 11, that's 21 outs after getting on base. And that doesn't mention that there were 3 or 4 times he was thrown out trying to stretch a single into a double, I'm pretty sure atleast one was in the ninth inning of a close game the Reds were losing.

    Absolutely. Freel's baserunning actually is a point in Deno's or Hamiton's favor. The Reds need Manny Acta as manager.
