Is there anyone on that list that would be both cheaper and better than Bronson?
I have not gone through everyone on that list, but let's say Bronson is going to get 10-13 million/year.. Maybe the smart money is to resign him as opposed to someone like Westbrook, or a reclamation project.
Because most folks on that list is going to cost some money... I guess we can only speculate on specifics ...the point is.. not sure if it is worth saving 5 million/year to get someone less predictable than Arroyo. Cueto's injury further concerns me.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
