Any thoughts about giving Walker a look at first

With Pearce being on the DL and Clement not getting the job done, what are your opinions on giving Walker the everyday first base job until Pearce comes off the DL.  Since LaRoche will probably be back from his minor back injury soon and taking back the everyday third base position it would be nice to see Walker getting a lot of at bats while he is here to see what he can do.  I would love for the Pirates to give Walker a chance at second base but it appears they wont take Aki out of the line up.  Once Alvarez is up with the team LaRoche will be out of a job at third.  I would think they would move LaRoche to second, and give Walker and LaRoche both equal opportunities to compete for that starting job.  If they were to let Walker start everyday at first for the next week or so i think it would really help management and the coaches decide what to do in the future.  This of course would put Jones back in the outfield and hopefully keep Church out of the lineup for a while because he has been struggling big time recently especially with runners in scoring position.  Your thoughts?
