Well it will be Snyder getting the call. I would really like for Snyder to start at 1B as much as possible, with Luke sliding over maybe twice a week to let Pie play in the OF.

Got to see what Snyder can do. I really dont like Luke at first.

If Lee is gone for a similar amount of time as Hardy, we should be able to get Pie and Snyder in the lineup about three-four times a week each. I'm hoping they go that route because I'd like to see both of them get at-bats.

Gotta go with Pie when a RH is on the mound. Snyder for late inning replacement and start against LHers..

I watched Fox play 1B in ST. I think it is his best position. Better then catcher, 3rd or left. I would like to see him play their against righthanded pitching. I would like to see Snyder play against lefthanded pitching. I am for a platoon for two weeks.
I would think that Scott is the 3rd best defensive 1B just because he has not played the position as much. To move him to first to get Pie into the O's may be a once or twice a week thing but Scott playing 1B for two weeks straight is not a good solution IMO.

This basically boils down to Luke and X playing (each night). I hope Buck evenly divides the starts between Fox, Pie and Snyder.
