    Re: Alonso Defense

    Gomes can't hit or field...He should be playing the position he's being paid for: 5th OF getting occasional starts against lefties...Defensive metrics are far from accurate IMHO. Personally, I think Heisey should be playing everyday, but if the Reds can't make Dusty do that, then DFA Gomes and bring up Alonso and let Dusty figure it out. If you can't field AND you can't hit, you shouldn't play...Alonso can hit; it remains to be seen if he can play LF reasonably enough to make him a viable option there. We've seen enough to know Gomes can't.
