Throwing out Rowand entirely and throwing out the 200 K difference in salaries or so(that will get that FA Catcher we've been wanting!) and hell throwing out Simmons and that you got Willie Harris for Singleton......if you had to choose a CF to play 162 games for you next year would you choose Kenny Lofton or Chris Singleton?

Just for the record I would choose Kenny, and that is assuming you dont get to keep Harris for dealing Chris

Kenny Lofton. Most of his hits leave the infield and he is still, if healthy, a threat to steal 30+ bases this year. He is a solid lead-off hitter who, if he gets on base with Valentin/Durham and Thomas following, should be crossing home plate quite often this year..... especially in the first inning. Most on this website, I think, will agree with me that Durham was never really comfortable with the lead-off roll and hit much better in 2001 in the 2 and 3 spots. Lofton is also a multi-time Gold Glove winner.
While I will credit Singleton's defensive ability, his spot in the batting order would have been 6 or 7. Having a player of similar defensive ability, I'll take the #1 guy over the #6 or #7 guy.
