Nice article about Halama, plus some speculation

Adam McC has a neat article about John Halama. I'm not overly optimistic, but it's hard not to pull for him.

Also, if we're already plotting the removal of Corey Hart from RF, how about a Gerut/Shelley Duncan platoon? For his career, Jody Gerut has an .803 OPS against RHP, whereas Duncan "is perfectly capable of knocking around left-handed pitching as a productive platoon first baseman, corner outfielder, or designated hitter."

For more about Duncan, you can click here. He also seems like a low-risk, high-upside kind of player, perhaps 2010's Casey McGehee.
