Yes, he would take a pick.
I dont think the moves we have made make it so getting a leadoff hitter helps. Theres a very good chance that only one of the two are here long term, and a chance that neither are.
Probably going to sign a veteran Catcher until Zunino is ready.
That looks pretty good to me and that would be the lineup everyday. And you have Bay, Ibanez, Guti, Wells for PH, and defensive replacements.
And the First 5 hitters names spell out BAMMM. How is that not a winner.
I'm not sold on Bourn. He looks like a Figgy 2.0 for more money. A healthy Guti and an improving Saunders are more valuable in my opinion. Save the money and extend some of these guys like Felix, Morales and maybe Morse.
instead of signing Bourn id rather just keep our payroll flexibility for next offseason
My post from the main forum that Booz suggested I relay here:
To the person I was talking to:
Morse didnt play full time. He played 103 games and was injured. Its not fair to completely judge him on one injury laden season.
Also, expect regression from Jaso. He is a platoon catcher and will always hit righties well, but not as well as he did last year most likely.
I am not a huge fan of the deal, but you overreacted big time.
Jaso Career: .255/.359/.395, .337 wOBA, 116 wRC+, 5.4 WAR in 311 games, 297 of them against RHP.
Morse career: .295/.347/.492, .363 wOBA, 127 wRC+, 6.1 WAR in 485 games.
