    ďItís something weíll look at,Ē he said. ďBut we think Billy Hamilton will be ready (in 2014). Thatís why we went with a guy with one year left, rather than someone we would control for two. Those guys would have cost more in players.Ē
    Exactly what I like to hear.

    Sure, just generally looking at a splits type lineup.

    Arroyo has got to be the happiest to have Choo. He had Bronson's number.

    If Cozart is hitting toward the bottom of the lineup, I'm very happy with him as the Reds' shortstop. Hopefully, Didi will do well too, a different type of player.
    ha that's me! I said he was ever so slightly below average overall. He's a great defender, and as someone later pointed out, his WAR was actually above average.

    I called it! Sort of. But wait... what are Jason Donald and Emmanuel Burriss doing on the roster then?

    Burris isn't on the roster. He probably means Hannahan.

    The Reds offense did pretty well last season, but this year if they can replace Stubbs' .277 & Cozart's .288 OBP's with a .370+ from Choo and a .320-.330 from Phillips in front of a healthy Joey Votto, JV and the Reds are in for a heck of a season!

    It's asking a lot of a player to suddenly change their position. Especially from the infield to outfield no?
    It's not as drastic a change as you'd think. Athletically, he clearly has the tools. It's simply a matter of learning to pick up the ball off the bat readily. Early on, his speed should cover up most of his mistakes. But reps alone will improve on his reads. My biggest concern defensively with Hamilton is how his arm plays in center. His legs & glove should be more than fine...they should be EXTREMELY fine.

    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Oh okay. So that means that they'll have a bench that looks something like this then?

    Jason Donald
    Jack Hannahan
    Emmanuel Burriss
    Chris Heisey
    Xavier Paul
    Devin Mesoraco

    Here's a question: Is Heisey what the Reds need in a backup OF? Defense? Ability to hit LHPs?

    This may sound strange to some but when the Reds make a big trade like this it is one of my favorite things of the year.

    This may be the last big trade for some time- maybe 18 months or more. Can't imagine what will need to be acquired. Maybe a LF upgrade in 2014?
    Go BLUE!!!

    Somehow I think he must have had an inkling of this sort of thing coming down the pipe when he inked that long-term deal.

    I expect sometime early in the season for Arroyo to stop Choo in the dugout and say, "What the *bleep* do you mean you don't do that against everyone.?"
