I was thinking about who could be one of the best candidates to be our right-handed bat next year, and I considered Milton Bradley. He had a truly outstanding year offensively last year in Texas. He finished 3rd in BA, 4th in slugging, 1st in OBP, and actually had 414 Abs. he made 5 million last year, but I have heard he is looking for 10 million and a multiyear contract. I think 2 years at 8 million, and an option for a third year would get it done.
Pros: He is a switch hitter, and a fearsome offensive bat. He also is in his early 30s, young for a FA.
Cons: He has primarily been a DH, and has had trouble staying healthy. You might need to put incentives in the contract based on how many games he plays.
I don't know much about his defensive skills, so any information on that front would be appreciated. Even if it is not stellar, his bat might offset it to some degree. He is a type B free agent, so we would only be giving up a supplemental pick if we signed him.
