With the Winter Meetings ending and the number of possibilities seeming to expanding, who is your choice for a new Left Fielder? For the sake of this poll let's assume Dunn is not an option.

Based on this list, I'll go with Young. Age, upside, control over the player for x number of years, salary won't be much of a factor at this point.

If we are really hell-bent on getting a RH bat, I'd probably go with Young as well.

i voted other: EE to LF with Beltre at 3B

or EE to LF, Rosales at 3B and Hardy at SS

or even EE to LF and Wigginton at 3B

sense a pattern? I think EE belongs in LF. I believe Walt wants EE at 3B

I want Rivera or Bradley in left and Baldelli in center.

Young, Dickerson, Bruce is not a bad defensive OF, with a ton of upside offensively. And it's cheap too.

It's not bad as long as Young puts it together. The tools are there for him to be a good defensive outfielder but he hasn't put it on display yet.

I selected "other" because I think Matt Holliday was the one to get. But I am ready to roll out the red carpet for Jermaine Dye.

Other--Manny Ramirez. I know he's an expensive head case, but boy can he hit.

I want Jeremy Hermida, dadgummit.

Take that righty bat garbage and throw it in the damn river. They need guys that can hit the freaking Baseball out there.

We don't need a right as much as we just need more production -- a lot of it. And soon. A high floor is just as important as a high ceiling. We need OBP more than we need power. We need a guy with a decent glove. We want to give up as little talent as possible in compensation to acquire him. With a handful of promising corner bats on the way, we don't need to control him for more than 2-3 years tops.

This team desperately needs to raise it's production floor, significantly, and quickly. If we were interested in Burrell or Bradley, we might as well consider Dunn. Delmon Young is Milton Bradley in training and wouldn't be cheap to acquire. How many games can Baldelli play? Which Juan Rivera would we get? Is Ibanez worth a comp pick? Is Dye worth Bailey and more?

In my book, that leaves Abreu as the best solution assuming a contract of something like 3/42 could be worked out.

I didn't vote because I'm still unsure at this point. None of the available options seems a good fit. I'd stay away from Young and/or Dukes for fear they'd destroy any developing chemistry. I'd really like to fill the slot without giving up Bailey...I think this is the year he starts to put things together for a small stretch of games. How about Micah Owings in left and Bailey as the #5 pitcher? Probably not enough production and I have no clue what Owings defense in left would be like. Hopefully, something will develop in the next couple months...I thought Holliday would have been perfect, but his price (in talent) was way more than I hoped to pay. I hope Walt has more ideas than I do. :eek:
