    Taveras activated

    Per Fay.

    Today the Reds reinstated from the 15-day disabled list OF Willy Taveras.

    Since 8/19 Taveras has been on the DL with a strained right quadriceps.

    Taveras in 98 games this year is hitting .238 with one homer and 15 RBI. He has 395 at-bats, and has stolen 25 bases in 31 attempts. His on-base percentage is .273.

    For his career, Taveras is a .275 hitter with a .321 on-base percentage.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Awesome. I missed watching his daily weak pop outs and misplaying flyballs.

    Very apt. Think we can frame Willy?

    He should not start more than one game per week. If Dusty does start him over Stubbs on a frequent basis, or worse plays Taveras in center with Stubbs in left, I may lose all hope for 2010.

    Oh, but what if he plays Stubbs in CF with Taveras in LF?

    Maybe the "integrity of the pennant race" imperative will steamroll the "veterans play and start until they can't" axiom?

    Veteran Respect plays in Center.

    How about this

    Taveras CF
    Stubbs LF
    McDonald RF
    Francisco 3B
    Barker 1B
    Janish SS
    Sutton 2B
    Tatum C
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Dusty's head would explode because he wouldn't know who to lead off.

    Re: Taveras activated

    Days until we have a starting OF which includes both Taveras and McDonald? The over/under is .5.

    Seriously, you know Dusty is going to give Taveras as much opportunity as he can to redeem himself (and more to the point, redeem Dusty)
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
