Willingham is no better than Jones, and can’t stay off the DL. Getting and keeping Pence would keep the Bucs in contention for many years, not just this year. Whatever they have to give up, outside of Alvarez, will be worth it.

Breslow would be a good pickup. All this talk about Willingham I do not get, in what way is he an upgrade?

It doesn’t upgrade their lineup at all, even in terms of power, and brings them a lefty that may struggle to make the bullpen as it is now, let alone with a potentially returning Evan meek in August.
