As we've noted, Hall of Famer Johnny Bench has been "trading places" so to speak, between 9th and 10th in "Trading With The Stars." That's either last or second to last. So, can he do better? He certainly said so on "Squawk Box" this morning (this is the show Johnny's playing for). Johnny talked with CNBC's Joe Kernen who wore Cincinnati Reds number 8--the number worn by Bench teammate Joe Morgan(this was to prompt Johnny to do better!)

Besides his stocks--Johnny talked about the Reds team this year. He's not predicting success like he is with his stock picks--but he says they should be a better team in 2007.
