Where to Play Them?
Michael Jong at Marlinmaniac.com raises an interesting question about positions in the future. Morrison is a first baseman. (The website calls him Nick Johnson Lite.) Gaby is a first baseman. Jong speculates about moving Gaby to third base, which would be a huge switch.) The other problem with out-of-position is that we have at least three natural second basemen (Uggla, Coughlin, Bonifacio), two of them playing in the outfield. And now we throw in yet another outfielder, Scott Cousins, 14 HR in Triple A this year. So (purely speculation) maybe they do get rid of Uggla. And now they've tried Bonifacio at third base -- talk about power positions with no power.
