Sure, I'll take McLouth over Chavez.

I agree too. Chavez had some value at the beginning of the year, might hit a little bit. The main thing was that he was the only guy we had to credibly back up CF. With Chavez doing squat hitting and McLouth able to play CF, it's a no brainer.

I'd quibble with the bolded. Career -13.1 UZR there in a substantial sample. He can play CF in the sense that Mark Reynolds can play 3B.

I thought he was better career wise, but still, how much is he actually going to play center? Compared to Chavez this year, I'll take McLouth.

Ford/McLouth platoon sounds interesting.

The fact we are discussing a Ford/McLouth platoon in LF is my one real gripe about not making any trades. You cant tell me that there is someone out there better who would have been reasonable enough in cost to get. Just have a hard time believing that.

With Jones not coming out......someone like that is sufficient.

I was also going to say *knocks wood* if Adam got hurt McLouth would be a problem playing every day. But if Adam goes down this team is screwed anyways.

I would phrase it "with Jones not coming out, the fact that McLouth can stand in CF is irrelevant."

He needs to be viewed as a left fielder. An average-at-best defensive left fielder who will probably hit to a .700ish OPS.
