Yesterday, in assessing team trade needs, Cafardo mentioned  the lack of available RH true corner OFs.  By that he meant power hitters. Hood is still a ways away, but there may be a place for him, if not here then in trade.

i would love to see one day hood / perez / harper (with werth @ 1b) or who knows.  it says a lot that hood is improving tremendously on his biggest weakness from last year (strikeouts vs. walks) and he's doing it in a more advanced class.  the power will be the last to come, but he's hitting some extra base hits in recent weeks.
