    Patterson will be the starting CF-er, and hit lead-off. Get used to it.

    I will continue to resist, until and unless he makes the 25 man roster. After that, Hopper/ Freel/Bruce has an equal chance to start in center field He has hit better in spring training than I expected, however. For the record, Bruce is still in camp and has an equal chance to be the Opening Day center fielder.

    Corey Patterson isn't that bad! The only bad thing about this situation is that We will not see Bruce on Opening Day, but IMO I think we are a better lineup with Patterson in CF. The leadoff spot is solved, and he is no worse than Bruce with the glove.

    All you need to know is that Corey Patterson has a .298 career OBP
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    This team won't win the division with retread veterans that couldn't make it elsewhere.

    The future is now. Play the future!
    Who's on first?

    What's this "For the record" BS?!?! You are freakin' DREAMING if you really believe that.

    What "Record"? Yours?

    "Equal Chance"? According to whom? You - with your head in the sand?

    Watch the games, listen to the COACH, read the papers, the quotes, the media, etc... just about EVERYONE says that Patterson is going to be the starting CF-er.

    You are hilarious. Funniest thing is you probabaly Actually Believe Yourself.

    PEACE

    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

    ChatterRed - As much as I hate to break it to you, the Reds are likely not going to win the division this year any way. I hope so and I root for them to have that chance, but its not likely to happen. Making a very competitive team this year and saving the young guys is not necessarily a bad thing,

    What do you see the outfield being on the great team of 2-3 years hence? Bruce and who--with Hamilton gone, Dunn unsigned, Griffey gone by then? I had hoped it would be Bruce, Hamilton, and Stubbs, but we won't see that now.

    not really sure what this is for but if you are calling OBP or agreeing with somebody who calls OBP a new-age stat you are about 24 years too late

    I dont know if I would phrase it "not likely".
    Mil/Chic look to be decent but not that good. Especially the Milw.
    Stl has lots of pitching problems and the stros have Oswalt and ??
    Just saying with the possible emergence of Volquez/Cueto, I think the reds have almost as good a chance as anyone in the central.

    Re: If Corey Patterson is the OD starting centerfielder-It will be a crying shame!

    Patterson was good pickup. Unfortunately his past OBP causes me great pain not unlike a monkey or a talking baby on a sitcom. One of Dusty's main requirements for some reason is that his CF has to lead off and his SS has to bat 2nd (no, I don't know why...it just is the gospel according to Dusty). CP could be a huge surprise now that the pressure is off but that is a big if. I'd rather see him platoon with Hopper (I can't believe I just said that) and Freel until Bruce is ready. Then once they all have a combined OBP of .301 after a month, then Bruce gets the call. Or you would think. Or we could just go get Neifi Perez and trade Bruce!

    Ok I just had a terrifying but real thought...

    Patterson
    Gonzo
    ...ok after this it really doesn't matter

    Didn't most people think acquiring Brandon Phillips was a bad idea at the time?

    My first reaction to Patterson was like most: do we REALLY need another CF challenger? But the guy has really impressed in Spring Training, no doubt. To me, the priority is getting the best guys on the field for the regular season. If that means Patterson, so be it. Bruce may be our starting RF next season...and he'll STILL be a young kid next year.
