Considering Harper's decent defense in CF, I think any offseason move for a CF seems like pushing pieces around the board.

You're not likely getting more WAR out of CF X, Harper, Morse, and Werth than you are out of Harper, Morse, Werth, and LaRoche. Considering we're talking about the difference between a LaRoche deal (~$8-10 million/year) and CF X's salary, I can't see how it's worth it. Pushing pieces...

Now you probably upgrade the team significantly if you resign LaRoche, replace Morse with Harper, and sign Michael Bourn or trade for Denard Span. But I'm still not sure that's the best use of resources if we're working under LAC constraints.
