Re: Cliff Lee
The only way I want Alonso in left is if he's platooning with Gomes. That could be a productive LF, but that's assuming that Alonso comes right up and hits ML pitching, which of course is something you should never assume.
Gomes catches a lot of heat for not being an everyday player, but the same was said of Jorge Cantu for quite some time, and that guy has been a rock for the Marlins. I give Gomes the job in left until he flat-out loses it.
