Re: What do you want? Left Field
I wish they'd find a legitimate LF masher who can also play defense well enough to not be an embarrassment.
But those guys aren't exactly easy to find nor are they all that cheap.
I'd settle for 270/360/450 bat with a plus glove.
They may be able to cobble that together with what they have, but it would involve sending Gomes to the small half of a strict platoon.
I still hold out hope that an Alonso/ Gomes platoon wouldn't be so bad defensively and might rake.
(Of course, I also still hold out hope for Paul Householder, so what do I know?)
