When Manny was first suspended, consensus was that upon his return Pierre would be relegated back to the bench, unless the Dodgers could find someone to take Pierre's contract off their hands via trade. However the more I get a look at the Dodgers offense with Pierre at the top, the more it seems like he may be too valuable an asset to bench or trade away. With Furcal not providing LA with that leadoff bat like they thought, has Pierre become a player they need to find room for now?
Looking at the situation there are a few possibilities:
-Dodgers find someone to take Pierre's big contract.
-Pierre returns to the bench/fill in duty.
-Pierre splits time with Kemp and Ethier.
-Dodgers move Ethier to 1B so all 4 can play and Loney's weak bat goes to the bench (wishful thinking).
What are everyone's thoughts?
