I wouldn't mind going into 2013 with him as our LFer.

Hoes is or not but he did look to at least be solid this past season in AAA. Honestly, I would rather go with a platoon at LF next year with Hoes, Reimold and one other each pushing each other for playing time. Also see more money go into starting pitching than LF. I feel its a position much easier to fill.
I do not really care about power for the lead off hitter. Doubles and being a run producing machine matter a great deal more.

I think all of the parties would be better off if Riemold spent as little time in the OF as possible. He's an AVERAGE fielder, but he's a bigger health risk. Where that man excels is when you put a bat in his hands. He's a natural.
