My first choice for Betemit and Reimold would be DH. Reimold because he's so brittle and Betemit because giving him a glove should be a felony.
Yes. I would like to see them sign LaRoche which would put a plus defender at 1B.
Okay, so if we sign Laroche, he plays first and Davis plays left. Laroche would put up substantially better defense..and maybe a tick above Davis offensively while Davis shows below average defense in left. With Davis at first and a platoon of McLouth/Pearce, we ALMOST get the defense back we would have gotten with Laroche at first and Davis in left, and we ALMOST get the offense back we would have gotten with LaRoche at first and Davis in left. I don't think that is worth ...13mil a year.? That paragraph was a bit messy but hopefully you understand.
