Your 2008 Opening Day CF and lead-off man.
Yeah, but don’t look now – he’s batting .462 and slugging .538.
Give the man a chance!!! I remember him always killing the Reds when he was a Cub so it’s good to have him on our side now. He’s a heck of a talent who just needs to put it all together. I wish everybody would stop bashing him and hold off judgement until later when we can see what he can do for real…Stop hatin’ on him.
Lots of crappy players have owned the Reds. But I don’t know that all of them should make the team.
I’m okay with Patterson starting in CF on opening day. He’s probably a better choice than Freel or Hopper.
I think he’ll just be keeping CF warm for Bruce, who’ll be called up in June like Bailey was last year.
