Considering this is already a huge thread and there is no way im going to read all of it, I'll give my opinion.
I think AB can play second... Not only that it gets another powerful bat into the line-up. Personally i think it should be Branyon(lefty of course). I think he could do quite well for the Reds in GABP. Dont get me wrong i like Larson but he isnt as young as most ppl think(yes i know he is still young) But i think Branyon will do better. As for AB give him a chance and i think he will surprise some ppl.
Kick some butt AB prove some ppl wrong
