Last-Minute Right Field Band-Aid?

Corey Hart is slumping.  There are no signs it's getting better, and with him in the 6-hole, especially when Counsell is in the lineup, 6-7-8-9 reminds one of the Giants offense. 

Desperate times call for desperate measures.  Do we bench the All-Star to try to jump-start a little offense?  If so, who do we plug in there?  The options on the NLDS roster are:

  • Tony Gwynn: Great defense, similar OBP
  • Brad Nelson: He's a lefty, so no way that happens tomorrow
  • Weeks or Durham (with the other at second) -- no experience in the outfield, but both can hit
  • Bill Hall: Wanna replace one slump with another?
  • Mike Rivera: He'll make Pat Burrell look like a gazelle.
  • CC Sabathia: Dude can mash.
