Chone Figgins

Well, if we could get him post-waivers or on a reverse-Bill-Hall type of trade, he'd quite possibly be a good step up from Bianchi as a reserve IF, he could play all over the place including SS (I think), and be a "veteran presence" guy, the last point of which would hopefully preclude the idea of clogging the roster with another corner OF/IF reserve bat a la Kotsay/Ishikawa with Gamel & Green already logical candidates for those roster spots.

 

I'm not sure he's the best option for the Brewers, but there are pieces of logic that work. Plus he's also had significant MLB success, albeit >3 years ago.

I don't see him as a "good step up from Bianchi". Bianchi had a very solid year at AAA at age 25 and though his numbers in limited action weren't good, they were still as good or better than Figgins' last 2 seasons. Besides Bianchi is a natural SS, and Figgins has only played 27 games there his entire career.

 

I'd rather go after Palanco, and pair him with Bianchi as the backup infielders.

 

I don't think you can assume Green has any inside track on a roster spot. In my world, he's a longshot assuming Gamel is around.

If Figgins could find his pre-Seattle form, he'd definitely be a step up from Bianchi, just a bit of a risk in terms of how SS-capable he'd be. If he couldn't find that pre-Seattle form, then Bianchi makes more sense.

 

Figgins does have major history with Roenicke, too, which could be a factor, as well as the fact that his "game" is about speed -- just the type that Roenicke likes.
