Trade Target for 2B: Scooter Gennett


Recommended Posts

He actually made some sense this past offseason as a guy who could be acquired for very little and at least be a bench piece. I still think he is a bench piece, even after his 4 HR night. He provides a little bit of pop and can handle righties but he has a flawed approach at the plate and rates poorly defensively. Although, I'm curious to see what he does moving forward after this performance. It's really hard to fluke this kind of game.

I'll take a .300 average and 7 bombs over what Espinosa/Pennington have provided. 

I'm guessing the Reds will want a starting pitcher in AAA with promise for Gennett.

Now that somebody named Scooter has had his 5-for-5, 4-bomb, 10-RBI career, er, game, my thought is: "Why the heck didn't the Wonder Dog ever do that for the Halos?" Or Johnny? Mark Whiten did it once for somebody. Hambone did it just before he pulled his Moreno bank heist.

Whatever Billy Eppler does, I hope he DOESN'T hire this "has-been for 5 minutes" named Scooter.
