OK, we need a 2Ber that can hit. What do we do about it?

 

Well, the first thing we could do is nothing. Just waiting for Ryan and maybe Hoff is the first choice. Hoff is off to a good start, but I am far from convinced that he is the long term solution at 2B. Ryan might be more of a solution but, is he really the guy we want to see starting at 2B for the next several years? So we wait Ryan comes off the DL, and Hoff continues to hit at Memphis and maybe we have a solution.

  The other offensive whole is Duncan. I personally have never been a big fan. So we wait. Maybe he comes around, but if he doesn't who would want him? Does Duncan have options? At the end of spring training I thought Duncan should go on the DL then do a re-hab stint and make room for Mather. Joe is off to a great start and I think it would be nice to switch him and Chris. I thought that Schu would have to be moved to make room for Rasmus, but now I think it is Duncan.

  So we wait and fill in from AAA. Do the Cards move Kennedy, Miles and Duncan and replace them with Ryan, Hoff, and Mather? The second half outfield five would be Schu, Rasmus, Rick, Barton, and Ludwick. The infield would look like this. Glaus, Iz2, Ryan, and Albert with Mather and Hoff on the bench. Mather will need to get some starts at 3B in Memphis. So what happens to the aforementioned players? Who Cares!? Sorry that is a little harsh, but maybe we can get something for Duncan.

  The other option is to make a trade for a 2Ber that can play now and hold the position for several years. I would want a can't miss player not a prospect. Wanting is one thing acquiring is another. There will be teams looking for pitching help. We just need to find one that has a 2Ber that we want. I am thinking of a guy like Aaron Hill of the Blue Jays or Chin Hu from LA. A sincere question is can we get a player like that? Can Reyes or any of the pitching surplus combined with Duncan get a can't miss second baseman? Any thoughts?
