I don't see it (and I like Xavier Paul). CF is the outfield position at which he has the least experience. With the club's commitment to pitching and defense, I don't know if they would go with Paul as anything more than an emergency option in CF.
I see Xavier as a decent 5th OF on a good club (or a 4th OF on a bad club). There's nothing wrong with that--Herm Winningham was very useful in that same role for the Reds in 1990.
