Early worry: backup CF

Flexibility in the roster?  Because Sandoval, Velez,  DeRosa, and Uribe can play several positions--that is nice as far as it goes, but what about the injury prone valuable leadoff hitter and Center Fielder.   Like him or not, there is a slight chance Rowand could be out of the lineup for long periods--say, they go for a run up a mountain in Scottsdale, only Rowand decides to run INTO the mountain.  Then there are long spring training batting practice sessions.  With that stance, Rowand is doomed for many strained muscles and innards.

So my question--what do you like as a "contingency" plan for CF?  Or, as an alternative, as an alternative in CF?

Not much of a poll as I can only think of a few possibilities.   Please come up with more and better.


DeRosa played more right than he did left over the years--and has an arm, he came up as a SS--should be able to learn RF at the Phone.  Scheierholz has played some CF, and his arm would be a nice upgrade, could save some runs.
