Carlos lee would be a phenomenal fit for 1 year.
Carlos Lee really isn't very good at all anymore.
His SLG was 30 points lower than Ichiro last year. No thanks.
Cash said that RF was a big need. I dont think he would have said that if the plan was to resign Ichiro all along, so i have a feeling that something may be in the works for an OF.
( ) Sign McCann
( ) Resign Reynolds
( ) Sign one of: Beltran, Ellsbury, Choo
( ) Win Bidding/Sign Tanaka
( ) Sign Balfour
( ) Sign Drew
If Cashman is looking for a RF he isn't going to sign one now thanks to Youk getting 5 mil more than what he is worth. I would still try the Phillies and work out a deal with this type of frame work
It enables Gardner to go back into CF while you have Brown and Mayberry platoon in RF. You use the cash that was freed up to sign a good OF who doesn't receive the big payday(Swisher,Ross,Bourn,etc)
