Yeah, this is my first thought, too.
Why trade for Clement when you have Doumit?
Woudln't surprise me to see them move Doumit? Neil Huntington isn't against "shaking" things up. As we have seen. (McLouth/Morgan/LaRoche/Snell) I still think they make Clement a 1B, Pearce hasn't shown anything since his recall. Also wasn't dominating AAA either. Sure Jones is on fire now, but I doubt its going to last. He will ride out the season, but probably wont start next year. So he will fill his role that being a bench player. SOLID one at that.
BUCCO LINEUP 2010?
CF - McCutchen
2B - Young Jr. (stil think they get him from the Rockies, for Grabow)
LF - Milledge
C - Doumit
1B - Clement
RF - Moss/D.Young
3B - LaRoche
SS - Cedeno/Cruz
will pedro alvarez be ready by next year or is that just wishful thinking on my part?
Pedro got promoted two months ago to Double-A, and started out "awful" but has bounced back and had a solid last couple of weeks, Still I think his long term position might be 1B, unless he can shed some pounds, "improve foot work" and cut down on the errors. I would like to see him at the hot corner, but we shell see. As for your question, I don't see him starting the season @ PNC Park. Will be up for a September call-up in 2010 that's for sure.
Hope that helps,
