Kozma could be sent back down and Adams could back up Craig at 1B and (in effect) Beltran and Holliday, with Craig in the corner OF when those guys need rest. If Carp doesn't look like he can handle 2nd regularly, then I'd think it would be hard to find a spot for Adams. Descalso would be at 2B. Kozma, Carp, Robinson, Cruz, and Wiggington on the bench.

Interestingly, I wonder what would have came of Wallace had he not been traded for Holliday?
We could have still signed Holliday in the 2010 off-season, costing us Zack Cox, but talk about a log-jam at corner OF and 1B:
My guess is Wallace would have impeded the Beltran and /or Berkman signings, which would've been bumpy given his line this year.

Adams has already "conquered" AAA, something that Taveras hasn't done yet. Adams will get the first shot to stick, with Craig moving.If Beltran, Holliday, and Craig all play 150 games this year, then we can deal with the issue then, but I highly doubt this logjam "problem" won't work itself out.Jay could be traded as could Craig or Adams.If we were willing to put Beltran in CF last year with Holliday and Craig flanking him, I'm sure we could do the same with Taveras.Oscar Taveras is 6'2, 180 lbs.Bigger than Mays, smaller than Griffey.In 2012, he spent 93 games in CF, 15 in RF, & 1 in LF.In 2011, he spent 17 games in CF, 43 in RF, & 11 in LF.In 2010, he spent 29 games in CF, 4 in RF, & 22 in LF.On a two-to-one level, Oscar has played CF over the the OF positions.

Gagliano wrote: Interesting comparison to Wallace. Thanks. The ability of Taveras to play center is key here. If he can, then the lineup would be stronger with Taveras CF, Craig RF, Adams 1B than with Jay CF, Taveras RF, Craig 1B. And I think the improvement in offense would be enough to outweigh the drop in D.

I think they would have to open up the new CBA, which I suspect ownership would prefer to avoid.
