What Should Cubs Do With Mike Fontenot ?

What should the Cubs do with Mike Fontenot? He batted .307 and hit nine HRs in 243 at-bats. Everyone is talking about the Cubs needing more lefty hitters. Well, there's one on the bench who we seem to forget.

If we are not going to play him, then trade him. If it was up to me, I would trade Mark DeRosa, along with Sean Marshall or Rich Hill, for a good starting pitcher and then try to pick up Adam Dunn in free agency. That would leave second base for Fontenot.
We have to get this guy (Fontenot) into our everyday lineup. If we can't pick up Dunn or someone like him, then trade Fontenot with Hill or Marshall to Baltimore for Brian Roberts. Either way, we have to get something out of this guy while his stock is high.
