Yeah, talk about conflict of interest here. I understand giving Griffey a day off once a week. Have to protect that guy until he gets his strenght back.
I don't know where I read it, but someone said it's clear the Reds outfield is Dunn, Kearns and Griffey for the next five years. Encarnacion is not bad, and I'm sure they could upgrade somewhere else with a trade.
Daddy's favorite son is stinking up the joint, but I don't know if it makes sense to play Kearns at third. I heard he used to play short. I'd love it if they did that for 5 games anyway, because I could the use him at third for the rest of the season!
I assume they're trying to trade Encarnacion, but they haven't gotten anyone to bite yet. Plus, they may be waiting to see if Griffey will stay off the DL. If they let Encarnacion go, the Griffey gets hurt, they might not be so happy.
It's an interesting story, that is in now way finished, that's for sure!
