I think he would definitely be the DH. I read somewhere a few days ago that they plan on using EE as their every day 1B (last year he kind of split it with DH).

But I doubt he signs here. For as much flack as Lind takes, he can hit 20-25 bombs, making 5 mill. I mean, hell, in 2011 he hit 26 in 125 games. He really only struggled last year but was hurt alot. I'd much rather him for 5 mill and go after a starter than sign Laroche who will probably get quite a bit on the open market. Plenty of solid pitchers available both short term and long term. Haren, Marcum, Greinke (6 years, 150 mill, won't be here just sayin ).

Isn't Halladay available next year? Sign Haren to a 1 year deal and then bring DOC BACK! I know Im probably dreaming..
