    34*

    * That's the combined Home Runs we'd have in our lineup out of three players if we still had Josh Hamilton, Edwin Encarnacion along with Jay Bruce. Amazing seasons for all three thus far.

    Cozart Ss
    Phillips 2b
    Votto 1b
    Encarnacion 3b
    Hamilton Lf
    Bruce Rf
    Stubbs Cf
    Hanigan/Mes C

    Wouldn't need Matt Latos with that offense. Tomko would win 15-20.

    You were neglecting Adam Dunn, in your wallowing? The guy is on pace for 51 HR and 127 RBI.
    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.

    I guess you could move Hamilton to CF and put Dunn in left. The pitching staff probably wouldn't like that, but I imagine the 8 runs a game they would score might offset it some.

    You could just leave Dunn on the bench for ninth inning walk offs.

    With a man on third and a deep sac fly is needed.

    I suppose if the Reds had kept Hamilton and Encarnacion, they might also have then traded Votto and Cueto for Bedard, who would now just have gotten injured. Or maybe they would have traded him in the Latos deal. But then Yonder probably would have stayed here because they wouldn't have had a first baseman.

    Okay, I'm confused. Can we stop thinking hypothetically?

    LF and 3B are our open wounds right now. Just so happens that's where Josh and EE play. Made me think of the possibilities w/ them. Sure it's a slippery slope. But this is a forum you don't need to think much to participate.

    Yes, 37 times in the last 1.2 seasons. Plays and plays well are different. A lot of mean responses to this thread. I'll be more careful not to hit your all's sensitive spots in the future.

    Geesh.

    I found your thread interesting and thought provoking and I think most other Redszoners did too. Good job.

    Some people enjoy bashing other people's posts rather than actually adding something interesting to the conversation themselves. It is much easier to pooh-pooh someone else's idea than to come up with an original idea yourself. There are always going to be nitpickers and contrarians here. That is to be expected on the anonymous Internet where people mouth off in ways they would not in a face-to-face conversation. Just ignore them. I know I have a few of them on my block list.

    Sorry if you thought my post was mean. It wasn't. But EE doesn't play 3rd. He is now a DH. Im not sure that you can consider him to be a potential third baseman for this team.

    Powersackers was saying that if the Reds had not traded Encarnacion he could still be playing 3rd for the Reds and hitting all those home runs.

    EE does still play quite a bit of third base. The main reason he does not play every day at third base is because the Blue Jays have one of the best young players in baseball and he plays third base (Brett Lawrie), so Edwin got moved. It wasn't because he can't play third base. Nobody will tell you that EE is a good third baseman defensively (his nickname is E5), but he can and does play there.

    Re: 34*

    Paul Konerko would be another one to add to this scenario. He only has 6 homers so far this year but he hit 70 over the last two years. Konerko is having another great year with the bat with a .345 batting average and a 1.025 OPS. He has had an awesome career and is still cranking on all cylinders. Konerko has hit 402 home runs so far in his career. Unfortunately only 3 of them were in a Reds uniform.
