Just have him shade closer to LF and it won't make up for all of it, but it will make up for some of the ground that he can't cover out there. And I wish we would play Pagan out in RF and throw Francoeur over at 1B. Therefore the whole OF can shift towards LF and still cover a lot of ground.
That sounds like a pretty good plan, actually, except the part about benching Murphy in favor of Francoeur.
