SI only thinks they fit because they are likely washed up or not a good fit with any other team.  Kind of like giving Mikey the bowl of Life cereal.

I would take a shot at Loney because he is young enough to be around a while and was once highly regarded.  It depends on what he would want to sign here.

I like Loney. Laird and Ramon Hernandez would upgrade the catching position at Doumit cost. Kotchman will be a bit cheaper then Lee if Lee doesnt want to be a Pirate. SS position hmmm –  Clint Barmes reminds me of Bobby Crosby so not sure on that position i might look at trades. – Starting pitching- Harang, Francis , Bruce Chen, Chris Capuano, Chris Young some of the guys to look at there.

really good hitter away from Dodger stadium his whole career.
