Hu’s on Third?

As reported in numerous media outlets, the Dodgers will try Chin-Lung Hu at third base as a possible short-term replacement for Nomar and Andy LaRoche.  I actually really like this move.  What I don’t want to see is the Dodgers trade for some aging third baseman and give up one of the kids in the process.  I know the blogs are full of people doubting Juan Pierre and are eager to see him go, but I still think he brings something to the table with his speed and am glad to see him in the lineup for today’s game (along with Hu on third).  Let’s see how Hu does today and if the infielder can adapt to the quicker pace that the corner position demands over his usual second base.
