I like the Prust addition in its essence, but the money and term might have made me look around a bit longer during the off season for something similar, cheaper, requiring less commitment, that's all. It's hardly a franchise crippling deal though, so whatever, really.
Yup. Not crippling at all.

Though, I do wonder how Prust's body will hold up in three to four seasons. I suspect it's an overpayment in years one and two, and pretty bad on the back half. Oh well.

On the bright side, he'll be entertaining.
