He’s an affordable ($7mil/year through 2014) middle-of-the-order guy and can play the corners in the OF or at 1B. He wouldn’t come cheap though, even if the Pirates pick up the check on the rest of his contract. I wonder what it would take to get him…

Cost wouldn’t be terrible after the injury/law filled year he had last year. Cleveland says they are buying, I don’t buy it.

If the price is right I don’t mind. I believe you are referring to the “golden thong” era in NY. Hey they won at least one with them, right?

Lincoln is much better than Hughes in relief.

1. Rollins- SS
2. Walker- 2B
3. Cutch- CF
4. Pence- RF
5. Marte- LF
6. Alverez- 3B
7. Jones- 1B

Are you an ortho doctor?

It’s a seller’s market, so we should be able to take advantage and get some value for Correia. A solid outfield bat that puts Jones back to first and Casey on the bench.

I wonder what hiscasking price is…

I don´t think it will happen, but he has great OBP. Imagine a the following lineup.
Marte LF, Shoo RF, McCutchen, Alvarez, Walker, Jones 1b, Barajas/McKenry, Barmes.
Then you got a bench of Presley, McGehee, Mercer, Harrison and the C: a combination of power (McGehee), defense (Presley) and speed (Presley, Mercer)
