    Top 5 at 3B or out of all fielders?

    Maybe he can start when Leake's on the mound and bat 9th.

    Or maybe when Leake plays left field The pitcher can bat 7th, Leake 8th, and Hannahan 9th.
    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.

    In that case Leake would bat 7th. He's a better hitter than any of the other pitchers.

    I don't much of anything about Hannahan. But he has to better than what the Reds had last year for a utility player.

    Well, Fay is talking about "Hannarah", whoever that is.
    "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."

    I can't wait to see Jack Hannahan hitting against Joel Hanrahan.

    I would laugh. HaHaHaHa.
    I am waiting for the throw from Hanigan to Hannahan. It would be great if they were doing a rundown and kept throwing between each other.

    I guess this means Cairo and Valdes won't be back.

    That was pretty much a foregone conclusion. Valdez elected FA. Miggy...I'd bet good money that he'll retire. But then again, I thought the same of Rolen.

    Actually looking at what we had the last two years with Rolen, it's very comparable (hitting wise):


    Code:
              Hannahan          Rolen
    Games 105                  92
    AB       287                 294
    R          23                 26
    H          70                 72
    2B        16                 17
    3B        0                    2
    HR        4                   8
    RBI       29                 39
    OBP     .316               .318
    Plenty good for a backup or bench player. I know Rolen's leadership won't be there, but as for numbers, they're comparable.

    Now you're just confusing me!

    Sounds good, and Walt apparently said today that Hannahan/Donald don't preclude Rolen. Maybe.

    I could see Jason Donald being let go or demoted for Rolen. He was a throw-in in the trade for Choo. I could see that.

    Hannahan was signed as a free agent, left handed hitter, better player than Donald. Some reports that it's a two year deal. Hannahan will be on the team, Rolen or no.

    Personally, I doubt Rolen will play, he may go to spring training but the guy has trouble staying healthy at this point. But in any event, Hannahan will be on the ballclub.

    Re: Reds sign Jack Hannahan

    Donald is a fringe major leaguer. I saw him play live at a Clippers game last summer. He can play a lot of positions, but if I thought Rolen had anything in the tank, I certainly would think he'd outperform Donald.
