Now that the Reds have Baker, who has a penchant for playing vets no matter how they screw up, we would have to assume the JR will play RF almost everyday no matter how he hits.
If we make that assumption, which JR shows up in 2008? The .275, 30 HR, guy from 2007, or the .200, no power at all guy that has showed up for a couple of long stretches before?
And if JR is hitting .200, and Bruce is hitting .350 in AAA, will Baker bench JR and ask WK to bring Bruce up?
I have my own gut feeling about what will happen, but I am interested in opinions or stats that can support a prediction.
