Okay, it's one thing for DD to miss 2 weeks. It's another thing entirely for him to miss 2 months.
Do we see Andy Marte up sooner rather than later and see Blake in RF?
As has already been noted, Francisco is right handed, as are Frank the Tank and Jason Michaels, which limits the platooning, especially with the Trotster diving headlong towards oblivion with his poor performances at the plate and inability to run faster than even the Slowest Catcher Ever. BLC - On the DL, too. We know from last year that J-Mike appears not to perform as well as a fulltimer as he does as a platoon partner.
Do we trade for OF help? If so, who's available?
