If he decides not to play for us that would free up a lot of money for a pitcher.

So make up your &@%***$#*& mind Fielder

Unless his price has dropped a lot or Meek is on shaky ground, I don’t see this signing happening. Four straight yrs of pitching in the AL East speaks well for him as he did okay there.

Jackson is said to be asking for $14-$15MM/yr. If that’s true, I think Francis or Harden would be okay choices. Harden is appealing to me if you have have enough material to keep him in one piece for a season. Perhaps use him as a spot starter to keep the wear and tear down on him.
