im starting to think the same
if we dont go above 4 years AND we dont lose the pick, im fine w/ that signing
Yea I mean I am cool with it. Especially without losing the 11th pick. Honestly I don't think we should. We had one of the top 10 worst records in the league. Only reason we were pushed to 11 b/c the Pirates never signed Mark Appel.
But one more thing. What about the power righty we were looking for? I know Bourns splits VS lefties is better than righties and I know he fills the need for speed and leadoff. But another lefty?
"15 a year is toooo much."
I agree...but if we want to pay 10-12/yr, I have a feeling we would HAVE to offer 5 years...would rather pay him more per year for 2 less years
Unless we give up Wheeler, we can't get Stanton in my opinion. I would give up Wheeler, Familia, Den Dekker and Flores in a deal for Stanton. Not sure that works but I would do it.
If we somehow pulled off a Trumbo deal (not likely unless we give up Niese) or acquired Willingham, that would significantly improve the outfield. Duda/Cowgill, Bourne and Willingham will be a productive OF.
Yes....but look what Adam Rubin just said :

MLB has zero incentive to change it. By essentially upping number of protected picks to 11 they're encouraging more bidders--driving up cost
