Re: Span to Nationals
I really don't think Walt has any serious interest in getting a CF/Leadoff because there hoping that Billy Hamilton fills that role by the All Star Break. Think about it, if we get Span for 3 years then what do we do with Hamilton? Trade Him? He's going to be way cheaper then Span, Bourne, Bj Upton, Victorino or any other option and he may very well be better then them, and with the SB's a lot better then them. I think we will hear the reds rumored on CF options but in the end we will open Spring Training with Stubbs and Hamilton as the options and if Hamilton is ready then he will be handed the job on Opening Day if not then Stubbs will play til he is ready. I would much rather wait on Hamilton and keep Stephenson and are other pitching prospects then give them up for a guy whos not even as good as Hamilton.
