The same goes for Taveras, so it comes down to this for me.... Do I want a pinch runner or a guy who can hit 495 foot HRs coming off of my bench as the 5th outfielder when even if your premise is right (and I would argue that its not) that both guys are going to continue to suck at finding first base. That isn't even a difficult decision given the roster we have.
