Evans is only 25. He has some decent potential. Jake Fox can hit but cant play anywhere. Id be more excited if he could catch a lil still.

Right?

That makes me happy.

Great if we can get A.J. Burnett and keep Jones.
Maybe they can give them Correia, pick up 8 million, give Burnett’s wife so many limo rides, and not even give them a semi-prospect.
That would be win-win all the way around.
I doubt it will happen that way, and if we give up a semi-prospect I won’t mind too much.

I’m excited with a starting staff of Burnett, Karstens, Bedard, Morton & McDonald.

They still need better hitting though. A professional hit-man like Xavier Nady on the bench would not break their bank.
