Span would be nice, but why would the Twins trade their CF who is signed longterm (option year at 2015)? Seems like he would command a very steep price. Span has a career 744 OPS. That's better than Stubbs (716), but not exactly a huge upgrade. His LF bat and better OBP would be a better fit, but again.. what price are you willing to pay for just a slight upgrade in CF?
IMO, this response proved my point that upgrading CF would be difficult, especially at midseason.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
