We'll see, but you're talking about only a 1 1/2 year commitment to the guy, and whatever attitude problems, the guy's still hit .301/.338/.519 the last 2 seasons and has been in the Top 3 in the AL Power/Speed # for 3 of the last 4 seasons. He's still quite a talented player.
I forgot about Danks. You're right he's dead weight right now.
