    I'd have Montero 3 personally. Best guy should be 4.

    I just don't like the idea of giving that kind of money to Bourn. I don't think he would come with Hamilton anyway, but if he did it wouldn't be terrible. Him with a bat is fine i guess. But Im definitely not hoping for it tho. I think he could turn into Figgins/Crawford pretty quick. May not be that much better than what we have for $15M a year.

    If he comes by himself tho, that's just 100% awful waste of money.

    I'd prefer:
    Ackley
    Seager
    Montero
    Hamilton
    Myers
    Saunders
    Jaso/Shoppach/Wells
    Smoak
    Ryan
    You have no idea how excited I am right now.

    i agree but no way its going to be J Up. he has no desire and other teams have better pieces.

    once the domino affect happens we'll get someone, a couple days ago i was worried, we'd get a hole lot of non value.

    if ny pulls off hammy it could be we get grandy maybe tex.... maybe it'll be ethier and gordon, or choo and cabrera. but i think itll be some bg

    hurry up already greinke!!!!!

    i really think hamilton and morse adds not only make alot of sense but very realistic. tex prefers greinke, upton. we are the most signable team after them, and we could get morse w/out having to part with one of the big 3. im thinking pryor, smoak.

    vs RHP
    saunders LF
    jaso C
    morse 1b
    hamilton RF
    montero C
    seager 3b
    guti CF
    ackley 2b
    ryan ss

    VS LHP
    saunders LF
    guti CF
    morse 1b/DH
    hamilton RF
    montero C
    seager 3b
    bay 1b/dh
    ackley 2b
    ryan ss

    I love this team right here.

    I don't consider Grandy or Ethier big. Both have awful contracts in different ways. Only way I want Ethier is if he is along with another bat and LA pays us like $15-20M.

    Can Bay even play 1st? I'm pretty sure he never has.

    question: would you guys prefer morse or morneau if its going to cost the same?

    i love morneau since hes from the NW, and his leadership experience, i think morse balances the lineup better since he is RH.

    i think smoak makes alot of sense for Nats to stash on their triple A team.

    I don't think Bourn is going to get some monster contract i get that Boras is his agent but who is desperate for a CF with little pop?

    I would like to sign Bourn for the right price Guti is in the last year of his contract and has not been able to stay healthy.

    If we lose out on Hamilton get Swisher and Bourn if he could be had at the right price my dream would be trading for Upton but he doesn't want to come here nothing we can do about that.

    I think anybody can really play 1st base maybe not well but it really is the most nonathletic position.

    Are the Twins going to take small value in return? He has had concussion problems and not played a full season the last two years.

    In really not feeling Bourn. I think it could be a big waste of money. Just trade for Myers or something instead.

    Guys that rely solely on speed an defense do not age well. If we are willing to spend like that, why not get one of Hamilton/Swisher, trade for Butler/Myers and sign Jackson or something?

    Swisher could drop off just like Sexson did after his first two years i think its silly to base something off of past players Ichiro didn't lose his speed noticeably until 36 years old.

    Compare Bourn and Figgins' stats. It's scary close. Ichiro is a different player. Far better than either of them.

    Swisher and Sexson aren't a great comp either. Sexson struck out more and walked less.

    And even so, Sexson was a ****ing animal in his first year with us, and pretty damn good in his second too. If Swisher were to give us anything close to those numbers I would be ecstatic.

    Players like Swisher tend to last a lot longer than players like Bourn.

    Plus Swisher actually adds to the offense a considerable amount. Bourn, not so much.

    Are you worried about Hamilton too? Cause if you are worried about Swisher you should be terrified of Hamilton.

    i have a feeling we could land 2 of them. 1 of Hamilton/Swish and 1 of Myers/Bourn/Upton

    but im least confident on Upton
