Re: de Aza rumor
I believe the reason they didn't go after Span is strictly monetary. He will make $4.75M in 2013 and $6.5M in 2014 with a $9M club option. That may not seem like a lot but they didn't want to restrict themselves with Ludwick. De Aza and Fowler are under control for a reasonable prize for numerous years in case it takes Hamilton a little longer to develop or if he doesn't pan out. So I think its a good thing we didn't get Span and am excited about these rumors.
