I think a platoon of Evans and Jones can give them 25 hr and if they keep Jones mainly against RH pitching he might put up good numbers but the defense is pedestrian. I like Lee’s glove and presence on the team but if they land him he is going to cost too much and i really doubt that he will repeat what he did last year with the Bucs.

It would be nice to have a better option at 3rd but it would be hard to acquire a good player to sit for long periods behind Pedro while he struggles finding his stroke.

Willingham hasn’t gotten 500 ab in a season since 2007.
That’s the main drawback about signing him. If there was a guarantee that he would put up 500 ab each year, I’d jump on him, and even for multiple years because you are definitely going to get the home runs and production when he is 100% healthy.
