That's how outrageous this whole thing is.
Both guys are barely replacement level.
Marcus Semien can't do what Beckham does for $500k?
Why not just release them two and take the money to scouting or make a last push for Tanaka?
Because (at a minimum) they both can generate trade value to bring some talent back into the organization.
(I'm still not giving up on Beckham- lots of injuries in 2013- while he seemed to be figuring it out at the plate)
