Firstbase poll . . . could it be Lowell?

Mostly I'm sick of hearing Adam LaRoche mentioned because (a) he's not very good; (b) he's left handed and (c) he wants waaay too much money. So I thought I'd poll The Faithful. Who do you prefer?

And before voting here's a thought: what do you think of acquiring Mike Lowell for one year at 1B? (Boston throws in a lot of cash -- they've already been rumored to have been willing to toss in $9M of Lowell's $12M 2010  contract in the failed Texas trade). I know he's slow and hasn't played much first, but he can hit, and when healthy has a good glove. He'll be ready by spring training. The Red Sox need to unload him now that they have Beltre.

You won't see Pablo at first in my poll because I think he should stay at third until a better third baseman is signed. Moving him would be a last resort. And you won't see Dan Uggla in the poll either because I don't think the Giants have the guts to pull the trigger (or the Marlins are asking for too much). Uggla is actually my first choice to play first, even if doesn't want to.

And if your choice is "Other," tell us who and why.

So  . . .
