What should we do about 3B?

It looks like the one position that is a mess for us is the hot corner.  Everywhere else we have something going on at least.  The Angels are 30 out of 30 in OPS by their 3rd basemen, more than 100 points behind the 29th place Dodgers.

It looks like Wood is about a year away from being MLB ready, Lord knows when D-Mac will ever be healthy, Figgins has completely forgotten how to hit, and Izturis is good for a utility infielder.

To give us some background I figure I would post a list of the 14 3rd sackers with a weighted OPS of over 800 over the last 3 seasons.  (Triple weight for 2007, double weight for 2006, single weight for 2005):

1003  Chipper Jones
981   Alex Rodriguez
974   Miguel Cabrera
913   Aramis Ramirez
892   David Wright
884   Troy Glaus
856   Morgan Ensberg
847   Garrett Atkins
844   Chad Tracy
823   Wes Helms
816   Mike Lowell
814   Casey Blake
808   Scott Rolen
801   Mike Lamb

That is not park or league adjusted obviously.

It seems like a bunch of those guys are gettable in trade at least.
