Platooning Salty all year with Thorman/McCann is EXACTLY the kind of bull crap Bobby Cox would pull. Matt Diaz is one of our best hitters, and he spent all of last year platooning in left feild with Langerhans despite hitting over 100 points higher than him.
EDIT: Diaz hit .327 in 300 AB's last year and Cox STILL refused to make him a full time starter. He's batting .340 this year and has still spent all season sharing time with Langerhans and Harris.
What I'm trying to say, is don't expect Salty to be a full time starter ANY time soon. We've had a platoon at 1B for years now, last year being the only exception.
