Why doesn't Ward play every day??

I know, I know... you are all going to say that the guy sucks defensively, that he is overweight and a poor athlete.

That said, the guy ALWAYS gets on base.  Look at the Astros.  They put Carlos Lee out there.  Matt Stairs plays OF.  I dare say they are about as unfit as Ward.

Right now, we desperately need to score runs.  Hill and Marshall have equal W-L records despite pitching very well most times because of terrible run support.  

I'd put Ward in RF every day right now, Jones in CF and Soriano, when healthy in RF.  I'd use Floyd and Murton as 4th/5th OF.  Have DeRosa play 2B every day and Theriot stick to SS.  That way, we have an everyday lineup in place.

What do you think?  Am I crazy here?  The Indians have put the Jurassic Trot Nixon out in RF.  I agree, we might give up something defensively, put I do think that the spark he gives our offense is worth it.

And the guy WANTS to play every day!  Don't you think he's earned it at this point?
