We are not going to get elite players every FA, might as well get over that now. This isn't pre-lockout anymore.
For me, it's not a question of if they're as good as those guys, but if signing them is worth the roster squeeze forcing a kid to GR for another year.
Let Cleary and Miller walk, shoot for the big names out there, but I'm not sure there's a point in signing someone modestly better than Sammy or Bert. Just plug a kid in there and ride out the final years of those other deals, to prepare to swing again the following summer. Even if we don't have a kid who's ready, I think there will always be a middle tier guy to sign for a reasonable, short salary.
blah, blah, blah
