I'm looking for ideas here, people -- Personally, I'm not sold on David Freese....so is free agency the answer? If so, who?? Hank Blalock? Joe Crede? Felipe Lopez? LOTS of questions there. Lopez seems the safest choice, but certainly lacks the 'pop' that you would like at a corner infield spot. Crede is an injury risk, having gone through 3 back surgeries. Blalock is only 29, but struggles against lefties and has had injury issues of his own.
So who is it?? Is there a guy down on the farm that's ready? Let's hear it Cardinal Nation!
