Bill and Ken's Corner Infield Adventure

New, comments

Bill Stoneman and heir apparent Ken Forsch are off to Miami to help riot in the street when Fidel Castro dies in the next day or two, or to look for a corner infielder with power.

The trippiest thing about this trip is that when you consider the potential of a healthy Dallas McPherson and a healthy Casey Kotchman, not to mention an evolved Kendry Morales and a serviceable Robb Quinlan/Maicer Izturis, there is not exactly a corner infielder out there that blows us away... of course, after dropping 50 spots on the Garbageman in Centerfield, anything is possible... and Bill IS under orders to bring in a big fish, but but but look at what is available...

The cheat sheet below makes me pause about giving up anything (especially young, affordable pitching) as just a replacement for Casey/Dallas/Kendry...
