I hope they start playing Flaherty at 3B more to see what he can do there. If he looks good I think you make him the 3B every time Britton is on the mound. If not, you find someone who can play at least average 3B when Britton is on the mound. Having Reynolds or Betemit at 3B with Britton on the mound is just asking for bad news.

I agree with this. I honestly just want to see Flaherty play more often. He has done something good each time. The catch in LF, the HR. I just like him. He still is a UTIL guy, but he honestly cannot be worse than Nick Johnson/Endy Chavez batting, and Reynolds/Betemit Fielding.

For the time being, DH Reynolds, Betemit in left until he screws that up, and Flaherty at third. Tolleson can play anywhere to spot people and Johnson is heating up; DH/1B.
