I could see then signing a guy like this for depth, but who do they bump down to AAA when this guy is called up for a west coast trip?
Maybe Donald has options, but he's the backup SS.
Not sure any other bench player can be sent down..
I think they will use Heisey for late game subs and live with that.
Yea, we are going to be hurting a bit in big parks, I agree with that. I just don't see a solution other than playing Heisey. Although I guess I'm not totally convinced that Heisey would be significantly better than Bruce/Choo.
I'm also not sure I want to lose Choo's bat just because they're playing in a big park. Might be better to just bite the bullet and let the extra hit or two fall in.
Edit: Now I see you say to let the new CF compete with X Paul. That makes a lot of sense.
I kind of forgot that Hanahan can fill the role of LH bat off the bench if need be.
Good food for thought.
