Couple things: He won't come that cheap, because he'll be offered more than that by another team. He is not elite, not even in that role, and has been declining sharply over the last few years. He carries a lot of baggage, even without the way he departed the team it's still the hoopla about "did Gomez score?" weighing on him. I'd rather avoid the extra sideshow, Kovy brings enough drama already.
