Default Scott Hatteberg DFA...

http://beta.cincinnati.com/apps/pbcs...cincinnati.com

Staying in line with our obsession of seeing if every available player would be a good fit for the Sox, this is a guy that I've liked for a while. I doubt he'll be able to get a starting gig anywhere, and he'd be able to spell Konerko until he's healthy, and actually give us a left handed batting threat off the bench late in a game.

Anyone think he's worth a flyer?

One man's junk is another man's treasure I suppose. I'll pass on Hatteberg.

1997-2004 Scott Hatteberg I'd be willing to pick up in an instant. 2008 Scott Hatteberg? Nah.

In this case, one team's junk is the same crummy junk for the other 29 teams.

He's bad.

Even though Swisher has been struggling, I'd still much rather have him spell Konerko at 1B and play Anderson out in CF than sign Hatteberg to spell Konerko.

I'm saying he ends up with the Mets.

Just wait for all of the FOBB to arrive and you'll find a handful of people who'll want to pick him up. I'm pretty sure Moneyball had an entire chapter (or a majority of one) devoted to him.

Some team will pick him up, but the Sox don't need him; it'd be a waste of a bench spot.

One team's junk is another team's Jim Edmunds.

Agree with others on this. Pass.
