Why is this important you say? Well because April 10th comes pretty fast, and if following Ken Griffeys past two years are any indication, he should be hitting the DL about that time. So someone has to get the at bats in the Great American Ballpark. (See Guillen in '03).
26 year old Steve Smitherman could easily be a .280 hitter with 10-15 homers and just as many stolen bases. Steve was the Reds Minor league player of the year in '03 and he seems to be the best bat of the bunch. But will they keep him in the minors to develop? BTW, He could easily be the Reds 3rd best OF. no I won't list them
27 year old Reggie Taylor is dunn. This former number one pick has never developed an eye to hit the ball as his 6/1 K/BB ratio suggests. His speed has never been in question, but he really shouldn't even be at this level anymore. japan would be his best career move.
22 year old Wily Mo Pena is not getting screwed by MLB, as some might suggest. Sure by not letting him develop in the minors has hindered his career, but his 5/1 k/bb, minors and majors, suggests he shouldn't he wil be bad at any level of baseball.
Actually the more I think about it, if you have Griffey on your roster, for some insane reason, it might not be a bad idea to grab Smitherman as insurance, especially in deeper leagues.
