Willingham can catch maybe

I was reading about how Willingham was  wondering how he was going to be used and went into to talk to Acta about it.  He is a real classy guy and deserves to play somewhere, so I was thinking.  Since he has been a catcher, perhaps he should catch once a week.  That gives him at bats until he is needed in the interleague games as a DH.  Imagine a lineup with

Dukes, Guzman, Zimmerman, Nick Johnson, Dunn, Willingham, Millage/Harris, Hernandez/Belliard 

that would score some runs!  Heck Zimmerman would likely be the 5th best hitter in that group. Guzman would be 6th or 7th best.

Add flores in interleague games in AL as a 9th hitter and Wow you got some hitting.

I suggest this knowing that Willingam is an awful catcher, but according to Fangraphs data Nieves and Flores are below avereage catchers as well, so we aren't losing tons.  Heck Willingham could catch Cabrera.  We might need the extra runs!!!!
