A's need RH hitting slugger at 1b

Let's say the A's get Furcal.  That would be nice.  But, if you pencil in a line-up with him and Holiday it's very clear A's are too left-handed and too weak at 1b.  With those additions Barton would be 9th in the battling order.  No reason/excuse to have a tradtional "slugging postion" like 1b batting 9th.  Giambi would be great, but is pretty redundant with Chavez and Cust.  I hope if Beane is
going for it this year he doesn't overlook this critical and easily filled slot.

Burell,  Adkins, Crede or Glaus and move Chavez to1b, Make Cust 1b and play Frank Thomas at DH,  Bring back Eric Byrnes?
