Platoon Gordon and Francoeur and there you have it. Francoeur and hit righties, and Gordon can't hit lefties.

The definitions to "platoon" and "on-base percentage" are in the same dusty, unread folder on Dayton's desk.

Besides the fact that Moore doesn't really understand platooning and has already promised Francoeur the regular job, there is a major flaw in this suggestion: Neither guy has produced that well to make a platoon situation really work. If we take Gordon's numbers vs righties and Francoeur's against just lefties and then prorate the total to 650 plate appearances per year, we'd get this:

2010 - 17 HR, 58 RBI, .252/.336/.381
2009 - 15 HR, 76 RBI, .309/.353/.464
2008 - 20 HR, 71 RBI, .251/.337/.426
2007 - 17 HR, 82 RBI, .278/.343/.434

Now, that's obviously better than not platooning them, but it's decidedly mediocre output from a corner outfield position.

There is no one ready yet at Omaha, so it really doesn't matter that much, until 2012.
