does anyone think we will see a relative platoon of glaus and mccann in the 4 and 5 spots based on the pitcher?

I am in favor of glaus and mccann platooning at 4 and 5, it will benefit chipper every time, and any time one has to sit it wont hurt the cleanup spot -- especially since they would likely coordinate off days so one is cleaning up anyway. 

IF melky is going to be our primary leadoff hitter, what do we think will happen with diaz? will melky continue to move across the outfield and get diaz more than platoon at bats? if so, how many abs do we think diaz will get? 

do we fight the temptation to put melky in right against lefties so heyward can keep working to figure them out? What about center? of our outfielders he has the best stats against lhp besides diaz. 

id vote for him playing half the games vs lefties in center and half in right as a rough rule of thumb. or should it be more like 60/40? 70/30?

I would also hope against righties he spells mclouth and heyward plenty, maybe he should also take his off days vs. righties?
