Here is a short rundown of the managarie of theories I've heard about to play first base, since Carlos Delgado has sputtered so far this season:
1. Angel Pagan to first.
I'll admit it, this was of my own doing. It could work, right? He's young(ish), athletic, and hungry to play. Maybe not.
2. Moises Alou to first.
Ha. Ha. Funny joke.
3. Alou to left, Pagan to right, Ryan Church to first.
Plausible. But Church hasn't played first, either. Give it a shot, maybe? How much can it hurt?
4. Brady Clark to first.
His days are numbered with Alou coming back. Too late to even bother.
5. Mike Carp to first.
Sure, he's tearing up AA ball, and I'd like to see him get a shot, but it's not going to happen. Alou coming back bumps Clark off the roster, so if Carp comes up, who goes? No one, because it's not going to happen, barring injury.
