    RH Bat...

    We need one, pretty badly IMO.

    2B Jorge Cantu
    2B Jamey Carroll
    OF Reggie Sanders
    OF Emil Brown
    OF Marcus Thames
    OF Jonny Gomes

    We could use another Outfielder, or maybe even an infielder.

    Re: RH Bat...

    Is Gomes really an OFer, or is he a DH that has a position listed?

    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

    He was primarily a DH last year, only logging 8 games in RF. It looks like he split time between RF, LF, and DH in 2005.

    Re: RH Bat...

    Jonny Gomes is a younger, right handed Russ Branyan who plays worse defense. He absolutely kills lefties. Give him 250 AB versus lefties and he'll probably go .270/.400/.520 with 15 homers.

    The problem of course is where to you play him? Doesn't Conine already fit our righty bat off the bench role?
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    So we'd only want him out there in an emergency and he'd essentially be a RH PH off the bench.

    I'll pass on him unless its a trade for David Ross or Chad Moeller.

    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90

    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Out of those choices, I'd take Thames. Not sure what the Tigers would want. You might be able to get Brown for the cheapest in return though.

    Could you get a Thames for Freel?

    I'll take Cody Ross back....
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    I watched a Braves/Marlins game over the weekend and the Braves announcers said they couldn't figure out why the Reds let him go.

    I like Gomes but we already have a ton of high strikeout homerun guys. If we need any bats we need guys that hit for average and get on base. However, I'm not convinced we need an upgrade at any position yet. We are two weeks into the season...... the bats will wake up.
