TBH though this is where they manager and coaches have to make up for the lack of veteran leadership since the FO didn't address it, and Hurdle and Co. failed.

Why? He is arbitration eligible starting in 2014 and not a UFA until 2017. If they ask for Marte and a pitcher I'd do in a minute.
since1970 wrote:Never said to have him here in April. I only wanted him here from August on, as a mentor, since we were wasting roster spots what does his OBP matter, if there was someone better I would've been happy to see him here in the same role. This team sorely lacked leadership, so if it came from a .190 hitter with an extensive playoff/WS resume I'll take him.

Everything I've heard and read seems to indicate that they aren't going to spend more than 5M-6M total this off-season.
