Re: Does anyone else think this would help [Choo in LF, Robinson/Heisey in CF]

It makes the team better now instead of waiting for Ludwick, covers them if Ludwick has a setback, adds a DH for AL Parks (in the World Series of course) and provides options should something happen to Bruce or Choo. Probably not a star, but some one who can play all three spots while providing some production. Last year at this time, I thought that was a perfect job for Heisey, now I want somebody better.
No argument here. Heisey looks even better as a 5th OF -- and regardless of that, the injury concerns with Ludwick suggest another option would be advisable. I wonder who will be available though. Versatile OF bats with solid D who are better than Chris don't grow on trees...
