    if Bruce is out(which seems like a lock) ... I can see both Hopper and Freel making the team.

    Freel becomes more of a backup infielder at that point? If both make it, no way can they take Castro as well.

    I would guess that Patterson will be the primary CF, while Hopper and Freel become the 4th and 5th OF/Utility guys.

    That would give them a bench of:

    Hat/Votto
    Keppinger
    Freel
    Hopper
    Valentin

    Put Castro there if Gonzalez starts the year on the DL. This assumes Patterson starts and they carry 12 pitchers again. I guess I can see that too.

    I wouldn't be surprised, either, to see a trade or another move, depending on how the CF competition plays out, and the SS situation with Gonzalez hurting and his everyday replacement not yet settled. In particular, it wouldn't surprise me to see Hatteberg or Freel swapped for a value equivalent that's more the right-handed-hitting 1B/corner OF type.

    How does Patterson rate defensively in the OF? I know he possesses speed; but other then that, I'm not enthralled with this guy.

    Reggie Taylor the Second?

    Who would you rather have, since both are similar in age..... Patterson or Denorfia? Why?

    Offensively we can accurately rate how Patterson will probably perform since he's has 8 years of experience. With Denorfia you have less then two.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    He's better defensively than any CF in the Reds' organization.

    No he's not. I'll take Drew Stubbs for 50, Alex.

    Sure, but I guess I mean within 3 years of making the MLB squad.
