Why can't Ross hold down right field for 2 years until Brentz or Bradley Jr. or someone is really ready.
In two years after towards the bottom finishes top ten draft picks you sign a big name Fa that really helps you, you add Brentz, Bradley jr., this years pick, Webster, Barnes and boom just like the Nationals you go from bottom half to one of the best teams
A start to a good line-up
A catcher 3 outfield 3 infield and the Fa probly a 1b or DH
start to a good Rotation
Thats 12 guys out of 16 key players (9 line-up 5 starters set-up and Closer).
He's a UFA at the end of this upcoming year. Do you really think he's going to be here in two? With Boras as his agent, that is unlikely.
In terms of overpaying for Hamilton or Ross, I'm not in favor of either. I'd prefer they eschew both routes and go with some reasonable vets on short term (1 or 2 yr) deals, and not bother with the Napoli/Ross/Swishers of the world.
