I would rather them play Andino at 3B and Reynolds at 1B vs. lefties and then have Davis at 1B and Betemit at 3B against righties.
In dollars and cents the cost would be minimal because we would be paying the pro rated remainder of the ML minimum. I would also see this as a defensive upgrade over the platoon you suggested at 1B.
IMO it will easier and more cost efficient to upgrade defensively than it will to buy a big (and overpriced) bat. If we can't bludgeon the other guys into submission then we should build a team can prevent runs in any way possible.

I was at the 17 inning ballgame in Boston and another in that same series and he hit 2 shots over the Green-monster. I don't remember which game it was exactly but if he can swing like that for the last 50 or so games that would be fantastic. He certainly did tonight, missed a homer by a few feet on one of his doubles.
