In the meantime if AA can sign a couple arms to try and compete for a 5th starter, maybe he can find a gem .. If not he can then trade JPA for a viable starter at that point
Also depends on where the rest of the FA catchers go .. Perhaps one team who misses out will be willing to pony up big, I think that's one thing AA is sitting on and waiting for
I dont know that I buy the idea that TDA will need extra time to get his swing back. Its the winter break JPA and Buck will have gone months with out hitting too by the time spring training starts, they will be just as rusty as TDA.
If TDA is deserves a spot after camp he should get it.
