    If Anderson isnt on the major league roster Id love to trade for him. Him sitting on the bench isnt going to do him or us any good.

    Re: CFer Brian Anderson

    Hey, Great American turns mediocre hitters into good hitters and good hitters into great hitters and Jason Ellison into......never mind :

    My take is, if Anderson's available on the cheap, there are worse players Krivs has taken a flier on (Ellison, Coats, etc.)

    WOW, that is hilarious.

    Hilarious because IT'S TRUE!!!

    Anderson would be an ideal person to take a flier on. Of course SOME PEOPLE only prefer to look and rate people based on their play with the REDS, instead of their career numbers.

    That's why people LOVE Hopper and Keppinger. Surely they are going to be batting .350 for the rest of their careers because they did LAST YEAR with the Reds.

    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009

    Hey look its BLEEEEEEEDSOMGCAPSLOCK.

    People compared Ellison last year to Hopper last year. Hopper would have to get aids to ever be as bad as Ellison was last year.

    Hey but what else is new with BLEEDS! He thinks young pitchers cant pitch and that all vets are dominate #3s no matter how injured and how bad they have been.

    Can you quit acting like a 12 year old and bring up old conversations in every thread/subject. Seriously. Grow up.

    Ellison has the potential to be the next Cecil Hernandez or even Gary Varsho or Greg Tubbs

    Re: CFer Brian Anderson

    from MLBTR mailbox:

    Are there any truth to the rumors that the Chicago White Sox are shopping outfielder Brian Anderson? I have heard that the Cincinnati Reds are a possible destination for him. How would Anderson fit into the Reds plans and what type of package would net a player like Anderson? - Rob

    Haven't heard the Reds rumor, Rob. I guess he could make sense for them just to add some depth. Given that Anderson is out of options and does not have a role on the White Sox, the price should be low. A minor league pitcher or two that I've never heard of.

    Re: CFer Brian Anderson

    Id like to give the guy a chance but he really needs to get a lot of at bats and I just dont see where they are for him on this roster.

    how about CF until Griffey gets hurt? He's RH so there will be plenty of platoon situations and he can be a late defensive sub...

    So you are all for taking at bats away from Bruce then?

    Jay Bruce is LH. Anderson can platoon with each of the three LH outfielders until Griffey gets hurt...

    Quite possible he cant hit ML pitching either, but Anderson was rushed through a system never won a minor league player of the year award and is out of options also.

    He also he also hits left handers worse than he does RH so the LH RH thing really doesnt matter.

    Also how often do defensive subs get to bat? Pretty rare unless its extra innings
