    Bring up Hopper

    The Reds right handed hitters are collectively doing nothing. Hamilton isn't hitting lefties. The Reds need some hitting against lefties.

    Hopper isn't a power guy but at least he will get some hits against lefties. And against righties. The Reds are struggling offensively and need a bat.

    Norris Hopper.

    I am waiting for Chad Moeller to get a start.

    Seriously.

    I mean Ryan Jorgensen can't be all that worse than either of the three up here. Or even Miguel Perez.

    Chris Denorfia is missed. Big Time.

    Is a Narron Law like a Man Law?

    Who would sit at the Narron Law Table? Jack McKeon?

    Well Perez is out half the year. Hopper is hititng the ball real well so far in his rehab stint though, so I REALLY hope someone gets sent to Louisville to make room for him.

    When you think Norris Hopper is a positive answer to any question, you know your team is in trouble.

    Norris Hopper isn't the solution. He will only contribute to the problem.

    Not if he replaces Chad Moeller. He would probably hit much better, and provide speed off the bench. I'd take him up here 8 days a week.

    He hit .353 and had an OBP north of .400 last year, albeit in a small sample size.

    He is a guy with speed who puts the ball in play. That's something this team needs.

    He's better then Moeller, there's no arguing that.
