* Only after Gonzo comes back.
I told you it was crazy.
But hear me out. When Gonzo comes back - and he's eventually going to come back - move Keppinger to 2nd and have Brandon play CF. Obviously he won't be as good as Patterson out there but since he is a natural SS, they can usually play anywhere on the field. Robin Yount started out as a SS and moved to CF. Eric Davis was a minor league SS but became a great CF. Craig Biggio moved from 2B to CF for a few years. He's got the speed to do it and Billy Hatcher used to play a mean CF so he could be one of Brandon's tutors. His other tutor could be Jr. Even though the legs aren't willing, I bet you he'd be able to help position Brandon out there if he thought he wasn't positioned right. Hopefully Brandon wouldn't balk at this move but if he did, I would hope Dusty could convince him that it could be something that could help the team win. The way I figure it, Gonzo's out at least another month. Brandon goes out to CF before BP for an hour or so and has someone hit him fly balls under the tutelage of Hatcher. Do this for a month and perhaps Brandon can make a decent CFer.
