    Cantu at 1B and Votto in LF? I thought Wayne was big on defense?

    If you think hes fine then great, i for a fact dont think he is fine.

    I just dont enjoy sneaky reporters that bash people like Marty, Lance, Doc and others on his blog in comments and play Mr. Nice Guy when given air time.

    the only answer to that is Dunn.

    No one. I think if someone is going to step into the outfield I imagine it has to be Jay Bruce.

    Probably some guy who hits overrated homeruns, fails in the clutch, and strikes out too much, even though he usually OPS's around .900 or so.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Votto in LF would be even worse then Dunn, so much for "defense matters" if they do that.

    I still cling to the hope they put him in LF to see others at 1st, it's a fading hope though

    Actually, listening to the Krivsky interview on 1530 this morning, it sounds like he isn't too high on Votto's D period. Maybe they are trying him in left because they don't think he can play 1st. Might be a last effort to find him a position before shipping him to the AL to DH (hopefully for some pitching).

    I'm reading into a comment he made about why Votto isn't up after his hitting stats were quoted and he said something to the effect that "those are offensive numbers and you have to play both sides."

    Also, from what I heard in that interview, Wayne wants to see guys perform at a high level for an extended period in the minors before moving them. Many of the promotions this year have been due to shortages or injuries.

    I posted the link in the Sundeck, but will put it here too. Worth a listen, starts about 14 minutes into hour 1.

    Hatteberg is pretty darn miserable around the bag himself. Been saying it for two years now. I guess he and Dunn shouldn't be here then??

    So, Votto remains in Louisville because of poor defense but Cantu gets a callup? Oh, the irony. Is the front office capable of recognizing good or bad defenders when they see it?

    Hatteberg has been pretty solid at 1st base if you ask me. Why do you think he has been miserable?
