For the past four years Horcoff played nearly all the tough minutes. We will have to see how Gordon re acts to the wear and tear that comes with replacing Horcoff. The key will be winning on the DOT and if he fails there, he will fail everywhere and will be the whipping boy early and often.
I would love to see someone take a part Horcoff without bringing up his cap hit. Gordon is getting paid 9mill over the next 3 years while Horcoff is getting 7 over the next 2-- next season both players will be getting the same money
Those are some rosy Horcoff glasses you seem to have on, if you take them off, it looks a little different.
No one is suggest Gordon is "world beater", but to say he will be as good or better then Horcoff as a 3rd line center is more then reasonable.
