McGehee has some nice numbers against lefties (.807 OPS and a 119 wRC+)

Snider should be given a shot as an everyday RF. If you want to platoon him, Presley or Sutton would be acceptable.

I can’t see Snider as an everyday option at this point. We still need either a everyday RF or 1B with Jones playing the one that isn’t filled.

I think either Sutton or Presley would be fine as a platoon with Snider if you want to do that… I think we need to give him a shot as an everyday player to determine his value.

And even McCutchen still has problems with sliders outside and down.

I love the Snider/Lincoln trade but should Snider be heavily relied on alone in RF?

Headley’s hypothetical numbers can go somewhere else. Something left-handed in BP might work or even SS/1B.
