Probably. Scutaro will cost some decent cash, and now they've got Gonzo AND Macdonald.

Yeah, they essentially purchased a 1st round draft pick with the AGon signing. 4.5 mill for Agon and McDonald, 2 borderline starters/backups seems a little high but if they weren't going to get OCab, Tejada, or Scutaro then it's okay.

I'm not a Tornoto or AGon fan but it seems like a wise signing for you guys.

wow, we now have 2 of the best defensive short-stops in the league.

i cant wait for Scutaro to reject Arbitration so we can get those 2 comp picks.


-A-gon will start versus Righties i guess (he has a decent .756 Ops vs them over the last 3 seasons)
-and J-Mac will start versus Lefties (he has a .715 Ops vs them over the last 3 seasons)

With their superb defense, i will take a .720-.760 OPS from our Short-Stop any day.

I will miss Scutaro, he was the best shortstop we had in a long time.
