Moments ago, I was perusing the most recent ZiPS projections for the Reds and I noticed something. ZiPS thinks Billy Hamilton is better than Ryan Ludwick right now.
I don’t happen to agree. I actually think Ludwick will be fine (just wait until my season-preview series, it’s coming soon! [that exclamation point means you should be excited]), but what if ZiPS is right on both fronts? How would you feel about an OF of Choo in left, Hamilton in center, and Bruce in right? It’s a lot better defensively and maybe better overall.
So, yeah, let’s have a fight about it.
Jason has been a fan of the Reds since he was born. He really had no choice in the matter. He has been writing at Redleg Nation for a few years, and also writes and edits at The Hardball Times. His debut novel, When the Sparrow Sings, is available now and concerns baseball, among other things. You can find more information at jasonlinden.com.
