Oh to dream, though. Picture Olivo being gone. Montero and Jaso splitting the catching duties. Montero DHing when he doesn't catch. Liddi as the DH when Jesus is behind the plate and giving Smoak and Seager time off periodically the rest of the time. Maybe more often than just periodically. Things start to look a lot better that way, huh?
Now, about LF. Imagine Carp gets his swing together and comes back to give us the Carp/Wells platoon in LF that we expected to start the season. Where is Figgins? Who cares.
Wow. Take your two worst vets and replace them with guys we already have and the team is vastly improved. Seems like this isn't such a hard task after all.
Gone But Not Forgotten (former adopt-a-players):
Forrest Snow - Signed a minor league deal with the Brewers. Currently has a bad case of the Biloxi Blues.
Alex Jackson - Traded to Atlanta after underwhelming in A ball. Looking much better in their system.
Eric Thames - After dominating in Korea, now playing for the Brewers and hitting .309/.437/.662/1.099.
Matt Mangini - Out of baseball. Now sells cigars.
Mike Morse - Playing for the SF Giants and struggling. Looks like time has caught up with him.
Jamal Strong - Let go after 2005. Played in the Yankees, Cubs and Braves systems. Now a national scout for the Cards.

Olivo and Figgins are certain to lose AB's, but Ichiro is doing well enough to keep his job. Right now the top bats are Liddi, Ichiro, Saunders, Montero, Seager and Ackley. That should be enough for any team. Because it's still early, that list will certainly change, but we shouldn't have any problems getting six good hitters before the season ends. The shortstop is the only position not capable of giving the team a good AB.
