Right Field

I am not posting this because I am entirely convinced, but I have been less concerned about a supposed problem in RF than some people. In my view a rotation of Hinske, Gross and Gomes is just fine. This is from Christina Kahrl at BP today:

_____________________________________________________

"In-Game Tactical Fun: Having an open outfield slot where you don't have an established regular doesn't have to be the end of the world, and the Rays are enjoying the benefits to the hilt as they rotate Hinske, Jonny Gomes, and Gabe Gross through their right-field starts. That kind of depth spills over into other lineup slots as well: Hinske's a four-corners reserve, ready to spot start for Pena, Evan Longoria, or Carl Crawford, while the always-fragile Cliff Floyd would probably break down even if limited to a role as the everyday DH. So instead, the Rays have depth, talent, and power where some people are still wondering if Rocco Baldelli will “fix” the problem. It isn't a problem, and however much sympathy people can and should have for Baldelli as he works his way back from his latest injury, it's up to him to prove he's useful enough to be mixed into this crew, and not feel a need to replace it outright."

She apparently sees the RF situation more as a benefit than a problem.
