I fully expectthe Reds to sign Alonso, I'll be very irate if they don't. I am concerned by the fact that he is missing valuable adjustment experience by the fact he isn't already playing in Sarasota. This could negatively change his "Fast Track" to the Big Leagues, and maybe alter the Reds future plans.

Don't we have some kid named Frazier in the minors that is our future 3B?

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
