    Re: CFer Brian Anderson

    Heres my plan with Anderson so we are perfectly clear:

    1. trade Freel + fodder to CWS for Brian Anderson
    2. Anderson and Bruce share CF duties for first month of season
    3. May 1: Griffey gets hurt day after hitting 600th home run
    4. Bruce moves to right. Anderson is throwing up Edd Roush's line (.280/.340/.440) and playing great CF defense
    5. Griffey never comes back to full strength, or when he does return, he justs shows health so that we can trade him to a contender
    6. Anderson looks like Krivsky's newest scrap found off the heap
    2009
    6. Griffey is gone, Dunn is in LF, Anderson in CF, and Bruce in RF. We have found the great defenseive CFer we were looking for to fill out our 2009 OF...

    Well It All Sounds Good But I Don't Wish Griffey To Get Hurt.

    Sounds super except Anderson went .255/.318/.435 last season in AAA. He's gone .216/.279/.353 over his MLB career (416 AB). Apparently he used to be highly touted, but the numbers aren't there. If you just want great CF defense, I'm not sure Anderson is a better bet to hit in the bigs than Chris Dickerson is. I am all for finding a average bat great D CF for 2009 (in fact that is one of my top priorities), I just don't think Anderson is the guy.

    I understand where you come from, but you can say the exact same thing about Brandon Phillips' stats from after he didn't stick in Cleveland. In 2005 he hit .256/.326/.409 in 465 AB's in Buffalo. Secondly, the difference between Dickerson and Anderson is that Dickerson was never a highly touted offensive prospect as well as defensive. This is not very risky, as all I advocate giving up is Freel's contract and a C+ prospect...

    If we can get him cheap I say do it. He does have 5 tool potential.

    Would be the most epic waste ever if he was on the 25 man roster

    Wow, you must be a very new Reds' fan not to have seen Jason Ellison and Buck Coats roaming the outfield in 2007. Don't make me go back to the DanO days to gather up some more valued roster spots. Your hyperbole is really starting to wear on me. This is the kind of low-risk, high-reward move that makes Wayne his money.

    I dont see a Jason Ellison on this roster. Nice response though.

    In my opinion, Norris Hopper is about two missed drag bunts from being the next Jason Ellison...

    Hey, Brandon Phillips couldn't do any of those things in 2005 and that didn't work out...

    If teams just gave away good players, this would be a whole lot easier, wouldn't it?

    But wouldn't "the most epic waste ever" include any player on any roster any year ? Jason Ellison wasted a roster spot on many rosters for many years. Get a grip.

    As mentioned earlier, I don't see the potential for Anderson to ever be much of a power threat. Phillips had some good seasons in the minors that would make him more promising. I'd pass on Mr. Anderson.
