OK. So, you figure that left field will still need to be filled next year. You'd like to see a guy there that can hit for average with decent to great power. How's this for an angle:
Great place for him to keep the stress off his groin (no Mia jokes, please). He never was the greatest defensive whiz at short, anyway. He has the historical batting numbers you'd like to see in the position. And, he's a great insurance policy at short should the guy I'd plug in fail.
And that's Ronny Cedeno.
Give Cedeno the job in 2006 with Nomar in left. If Cedeno can't break .250 while batting 8th, you can always send him down and slide Nomar back into short.
Crazy because it just makes too much sense.
