Interleague Play - Use of the DH

Just read that in the offseason, MLB will entertain the idea of using the AL rules in NL & NL rules in AL parks during interleague games. This got me thinking about who the Cubs will use as DH in the coming weeks when they have 6 games on the road vs. AL teams. It seems like Dusty is moving towards a straight platoon situation in LF while giving the nod almost exclusively to Walker at second. With that in mind, will Dusty...

- use these road interleague games as opportunity to get Hairston in the line up to lead off
- use Dubois exclusively in the DH role
- slide Ramirez to DH to give his aching back, groin, etc. a rest
- or none of the above
