    No he can't. He had no marketable skill.

    Canard.

    I think we can agree that there needs to be minimum threshold for defense. Teams don't just sign a bunch of sluggers and spread them around the field satisfied that all that offense makes up for no defense.

    So the argument isn't whether EE's offense makes up for his defense, its whether he meets a defensive threshold.

    Or, maybe you're right, and his offense does make up for defense where it counts -- winning games. But you'll have a hard time convincing other people in the game. And they set the market.
