Dickerson ended his season batting .304/.413/.608 in 102 ABs. Not too shabby. There's been a lot of talk in Reds-land about him staying up for next season, and it's hard to argue that he hasn't earned the starting CF spot, or at least a shot at it in Spring Training. In the "Reds of the future" poster they passed out at the ballpark on Friday, he was featured alongside other prominent Reds position players like Votto, Bruce, Edwin, BP, and Keppinger (meh). I think that was the list, someone else correct me if I'm wrong about that. Either way, it probably means that Corey Patterson will continue his Farewell Tour playing every day in CF. Boo to that.
Outfielder Chris Dickerson is finished for the season. He will have surgery Friday to correct a stress fracture in his heel. Dickerson's playing time has been limited by what was thought to be an Achilles problem.
"The MRI yesterday showed a stress fracture," Dickerson said. "It's kind of relief. I know I'm not going crazy. The orthodics weren't working. It's surgery but it's minor surgery."
