1) Todd Jones is having a 1 year aberration. He will revert back to 2000-2003 form next year so he isn't worth much.
2) He will be a free agent.
Machado if he learns to hit .260 could be an everyday SS. He walks a ton, has a little pop, great speed and is an outstanding defender at age 23.
Not much to like about Hancock. 4.00 ERA in AAA this year. Low K rate.
