Add 1 guy to our BP and I'd feel pretty good about our team going forward.
My point is that any move should be considered in terms of a.) What is available and b.) What you can afford. Acquiring a viable CF and 3B for 8 million dollars is solid work.
This deal has potential to be a homerun going forward for Philly. It's like signing Michael Bourn as a 25 year old but only paying him like 2M a year for 5 years. They have a lot of payroll flexibility now.
