Is his bat really that much more valuable than Conn Jackson, Mark Reynolds, or Chad Tracy? I don't do this if I am the manager. I bet it's just a bunch of hot air, but still pretty amusing.

NASHVILLE - Micah Owings' bat could get a little more play next season, and we're not just talking about pinch-hitting appearances.
Owings, who last season made 27 starts out of the Diamondbacks' rotation and posted a 4.30 ERA, could find his way onto the field, perhaps at first base.
"It's potentially, depending on how our roster looks, an option," manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday during a Q&A session with reporters.
