    thanks.

    Dorn is a guy who the organization doesn't think much of & may get very limited opportunities to prove himself in the bigs. being out 6-8 weeks with a broken hand doesn't help.

    Any idea if the plan is for him to remain there the rest of the year?
    "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."

    Hopefully he can go on a tear and either fetch the Reds a good player in a trade or come up and fill the Reds left field role.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Has he been playing in left field at AA or first base?
    "In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"

    I would love to see them flip him for someone like a Michael Taylor who is really struggling in AAA for Oakland. Right handed power corner OF prospect would be a perfect fit.

    Or a free agent to be Cliff Lee. Not a real target just a name that fits my example.

    DING DING DING!!!

    I think Walt is showcasing him, and would rather trade him than put a Dunn-Lite in LF for the Big Club.
    Alonso's future in ML is at DH IMO.

    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

    If their only interest is in showcasing him for a trade then why not just play him at 1B? I think there is a very good chance that they are doing what they say they are doing; grooming him to be the LF of the future. I hope so.

    Was kinda surprised he was down at AA to start the year but I always felt it was more because of playing time than anything.
