And the nice thing is that none of our top guys- in Pittsburgh and in the minors- looks like they’d be hopeless in PNC’s left field, let alone in right. An outfield of McCutchen, Marte and whoever makes it out of Polanco, Bell and Barnes would cover a ton of ground out there.

As much as we all like Hansen, we’re REALLY depending on him not just reaching the majors but doing so as a shortstop, otherwise we’re in trouble at the position. Outfield is a different story- a LOT would have to go wrong for us to break camp in any of the next handful of years without 4-5 pleasing OF options.
