Personally I'd just kick in the salary since it's a bunch of rich people's money anyway, and getting that kid will keep the rebuild to a minimum.
Here's a question for everyone. If the deal is straight up Lee for Bogaerts, would you rather do that or Lee for Bradley plus 2 of their other top 10 prospects?
Part of me is leaning towards quantity, there are so many holes.
Yes Bogaerts is a great prospect at 1 position, but if you can fill several spots with average to maybe above average players, then you save money across the board in many areas.
