    We could play Jay Bruce at SS and it doesnt make him any more of a SS than Jeff Keppinger or JHJ were.

    Then, we could move Beckham to another position where he would continue to kick ass.
    Simply being better than what we have had doesn't make it a good option.

    Which had nothing to do with my original question for posting this thread. I don't know how it morphed into that, but it did. I had Beckham playing 3rd Base for the REDS as EE was included in the deal.

    Looking back, instead of EE, Roenicke and Stewart for Rolen, I had EE, Cozart (or Stubbs) and Harang for Beckham.

    We'd have Beckham, Roenicky and Stewart and not some aging has-been playing 3rd base minus two Star Prospects.

    I wish I was running the REDS.

    Now it looks that way, but if you look at the beginning of this thread, you'd think I was offering the moon.
