as long as Nick J. stays healthy, and Chris Marrero keeps up his ManChild-ish ways, I'm not really too concerned about what we do with Dmitri. we could get a competent backup-but-not-quite-starter quality 1B from pretty much anywhere.
my gut tells me Dmitri isn't with the team much longer due to weight/health/trade-to-AL-team-for-DHing. that said, I don't hate the guy because he's fat.
he's just not a long-term solution for us at 1B in the National League. but that was always the case anyway.
if we played in the AL, Dmitri would be more valuable to us on the field, I think.
