Good point. If he is hitting well in July 14, that could be his max value point. But that's a big IF.
Yea we have holes. We have money. Do the best we can this offseason..don't waste it on marginal players. We could also make some trades player for player, but those just don't seem to happen much anymore. it's always someone for prospects.
