The problem is he hasn't priced himself as an everyday player. If he did he'd be asking for much more.
Hunter Pence just signed for $13.8 million coming off of .253/24/104 with an OPS of .743
Hairston hit .263/20/57 with an OPS of .803 in 240 less ABs.
And that $13.8 million was exactly what was projected Pence would get.
"he is a patient man."
>> I think he definitely has an eye on Upton and ideally would like to land him, but I think that it would be at a certain cost and I just don't know if the market will ever match the value he wants. It would be nice though.
Supposedly Sandy has talked to the D'Backs about Upton. The first name Sandy heard was Wheeler and Sandy s not going to trade Wheeler. I'm sure if this was by phone once Sandy heard Wheeler the D'Backs heard click.
