As you can see, my OF situation is a log jam. I just had to drop McClouth to activate Harper. Lind is back to bumming me out, so I'm looking at an upgrade and stability at 1B.

I give:


I get


Other factors are that Ryu would be a late round keeper next year which is nice. Also, Ryan Howard is on the WW so maybe he's a serviceable enough 1B over Lind and i can keep Stanton/Ryu and upgrade somewhere else?

Thoughts Welcome..thank you!

Howard might not be a bad option. I am not a big fan but his numbers have come around from last year. His BA isn't great but the league overall isn't all that much better than what he is doing so he is no longer a BA killer if he can keep it in the .260 range.

The power isn't spectacular like it used to be but it is ok and same goes with the RBI and R production. I think I would go with him and look to upgrade somewhere else. Honestly I am amazed that I am suggesting Howard as even as an option.
