But people on WSI seem to mostly either want to anoint Palka the Sox 1B of the future, or banish him entirely to the land of wind and ghosts.
Maybe- but in an era where you're carrying 12-13 pitchers- dedicating a roster spot to a platoon DH (vs. RHP only) might not make a whole lot of sense....especially compared to a player like Collins who can play the DH vs. RHP role along with catching and playing some 1st base.
