I guess, why not?
They aren't going to make team, at least we may have a competitive AAA team. That was the biggest reason we got kicked out of Buffalo.

LOL... Yeah, but there is no harm in inviting guys to camps. Maybe you end up getting some value out of a few of them.
In 1998, a first round pick (3rd) meant Corey Patterson.
Never really put it together.
Patterson seems like he's been around forever. He's only 33, which is not as old as I would have thought. I wonder if Patterson still has the wheels? This is a guy who had back to back 45/37 SB seasons in '06/'07, which ain't easy to do when your OBP is barely over .300. (And a lifetime OBP of .290. Ouch). And in 2010 he stole 21 bases in only 308 ABs (averages a steal every 14.6 AB).
This does make me think Bourne isn't coming though.
