Good player with pop and can hit for a decent average....though he is a lefty. He is owed quite a bit of money and the only way I could see him being a fit is if the Dodgers ate at least half of his contract and wouldn't cost much at all in the talent department.
2013 $13,500,000 2014 $15,500,000 2015 $18,000,000 2016 $18,000,000 2017 $17,500,000 2018 age 36 $17.5M Vesting Option, $2.5M Buyout
Now that I think about it...he might not be the greatest fit lol...
'....though he is a lefty. "
Sorry but NEXT! Just for that reason unless they also get a righty.
we finally will have salary cap flexabilty next year I doubt he will tie up all those funds on a 30 year old OF.
Just doesn't make sense to make that move. If we are making a move for an OF it is probably a younger OF that is still on his first contract.
i was thinking about this earlier
are we that lefty heavy in players guaranteed spots
right now we have
SS tejada RC D'arnaud (he'll be up by late may) R / Buck R3b Wright R1b Davis L
then, if Murphy is our 2b again, thats another L
then we have den dekker, duda, and kirk gunning for OF spots as L - ethier would presumably replace one of them
but then you have flores trying to break through some where as a R
If they resigned hairston and then brought in ethier and went w/ either den dekker or kirk in CF & I know its a long shot but IF they give flores the job at 2b, which i do think is a possibility, that would be 5 of 8 positions manned by righties
