For hitting help this off season it is a bit light in the market. You have David Gomez as a switch hitting firstbase option. Enrique Gomez can play just about anywhere you need him to and still can handle a bat OK. He is better than a super utility guy but is a long way from his robust homerun seasons. Efrain Redman can still hold his own in any outfield spot and not bring too much shame to his family when he steps into either side of the batters box. Hank Morgan is even better and a year younger that Redman. There are plenty others out there that can fill in as stop gaps and maybe can be had during spring training to save some money. When the time for signing comes I will do a better run down with released players and declined options
