    Who’s going out when EdE comes back? Obviously quinton is producing the least, but that leaves us Freel and more Freel for back up outfielders.

    I don’t know why we really need 5 OF, and i’m sure someone could fill in in a desperate pinch, but it seems like most NL teams like to do it, for double switches and the like.

    Could this be the end of the Javy Valentin experience? Jason Larue dealt?
