Heisey should go to since he will be making around 2 million as well, and his role could be filled for close to the minimum.
I'm pessemistic about Choo resigning.
If Choo leaves, you almost have to keep Heisey around as a plan B to help cover CF. Cutting Heisey loose and then only having BHam and DRobinson to play CF is pretty thin. Now if we can get value for Heisey in a trade, I'm open to trading Heisey, I just can't see DFAing Heisey though.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
