    How much worse than Gomes would Alonso be as a left fielder? I'm talking strictly defensively here.

    Worse. How much worse is very difficult to say. I'd bet Yonder could play left but he needs to put in a lot of work there before I'd want to see him there in Cincy.

    Can you give us a comparison to Dunn?

    Well, he's faster than Dunn but he doesn't have the instincts to tell him where to run to track down flyballs. I think he'd be a little better than Dunn. Dunn had problems fielding balls bouncing toward him.

    Dunn must be horrifically slow then because Yonder is extremely slow. Unless he's turned into Juan Pierre since last season.

    Thanks, Goya. He sounds good enough to me to be opening day 2011's Left fielder.

    Re: Yonder Alonso named International League Player of the Week for 7/26-8/1

    Congrats to Yonder!

    From minorleaguebaseball. com:

    Yonder Alonso helped his red hot Louisville Bats to victories in each of the teamís six games this week, as he led the International League with a .480 batting average, 12 hits, and a .960 slugging percentage. He was 2nd in the League with a .552 on-base percentage and 4 doubles, and tied for 3rd with 2 home runs. Alonso and his teammates set the tone for the week on Monday, as they exploded for 19 runs in the series opener against Charlotte (with Alonso going 4-6 with a double, RBI, and two runs scored). The next night he put the Bats ahead for good with a solo homer in the 7th inning of a 7-5 victory. When the division-leading Columbus Clippers came to town over the weekend, Alonso continued his hot hitting. He drove in four runs in the 10-2 win Saturday night, collecting two doubles and a home run. His 11th and 12th hit of the week came yesterday in another Bats win, giving the team ten in a row. Louisville currently leads the Wild Card race by 3.0 games over Syracuse.

    ------------------------------------------------

    As far as Left Field is concerned, I believe the Reds have given up on making him a left fielder, so I'm guessing he is pretty bad.

    I don't know that they have given up. When Dorn and Francisco went down it limited the options on who could play 1B in Louisville. Frazier for certain but then there was no real solve for 3B unless you moved everyone around.The easy plug and play thing to do was Alonso at 1B. If he doesn't get moved there for the AFL then it's probably official that he will be moved at the Winter Meetings.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...
