But yeah, I've seen RFers in Co-Ed softball games with better range than we're getting out of Carlos right now. Lance Berkman was a better OFer in 2011.
Garcia and Westbrook may avoid the pain due to their extreme GB tendencies, but Wainwright, Lynn and Miller are all going to have to be razor sharp to get around that. Lynn and Miller may have even more trouble as power righties that RH hitters are going to look to serve balls the other way against.
Well, the Cardinals have some potential solutions. What would it take to go to them? Why not let Beltran get healthy now?
Besides, if you figure you're only going to get 130 good games from Carlos, it wouldn't be a terrible thing if the last 15 of those are in September rather than July...
Adams at 1B/Craig in RF or Taveras up for a RF stint would seem to make a lot of sense.
