Looking through the rubble of the trainwreck at first base, it’s hard to find any solution.
-It would take some serious stones to eat the contract.The contract prevents them from dealing Carlos Delgado, too. Who wants that burden?
-Sure, let’s trade for Inge. But, who you giving up? Most of their prospects are in Minnesota.
-Benching him doesn’t make sense, because who are you going to play?
-Teaching the position to Alou at this stage of his career, and during the season, isn’t going to happen.
Basically, the way I see it is the most you can do is hope there’s an encore in there.
