Some people need a reality check as to the kind of player on a big league bench.

Unless one of the kids in the minors steps up, you're not going to be able to get a guy who has similar numbers as a guy in the lineup, unless you're willing to pay a lot more than 700K, and those guys want playing time assurances, like our ole buddy Fukudome.

Also, remember that Wise outperformed a number of our players down the stretch.

That said, I hope there's a mix of lower cost bench guys and kids fighting for big league jobs come March, and Wise won't just be handed the role.
