Isn't Alston's bat good enough to play on a daily basis? Why can't he play 1st?
He's got a great bat, but Mike's setup provides you with a much better defensive team which will help your pitching a lot.
As I've mentioned he is a great PH, and when Alfonzo needs rest (and he will) Alston isn't a big drop.
I wouldn't trade him because he is 27 and Manuel and Alfonzo are both much older, so at some point he will be an every day 1B or LF.
