Interesting idea, I wonder if he'll be ready in time for much action in 2018, and how rusty he may be.

Worth it for just a waiver claim IMO.   And they would get a free preview of him if they're at all considering going after him as a FA, maybe for 1b.

certtainly not as a late inning defensive replacement for Andujar, and hard to see him out hitting Andujar.

I would think he'd be used for 1b/DH mostly, maybe to rest Andujar once in a while.


Some of the replies in the tweet also say it's to block Boston from getting him.

was mvp just 3 seasons ago but seems like the type of player who'd flop if we got him but would thrive in boston and particularly kill us. don't let the red sox get him.

Steroids probably breaking down his body, they should pass.

When healthy he was great. Seems like he's breaking down now. If not  then he would be a big upgrade over Bird and is a great glove at 3rd. As long as his contract keeps them under I would seriously think about it.


 Noticed early in the year his arm was bad. Don't know if that was resolved.

I think this is just a rumor, they need an OF'r more than they need another infielder.. Besides the money he might add could put them in jeopardy for something of need before this year is over.. I think this is just something to talk about in dead times...

Play the odds, and the odds say this is another bad idea. I thought we were through buying broken-down old-timers whose best years are long gone.

This would be a good move as he can play 3B and 1B for this team.


Looks like Boone will sit Bird against LHP so rather see Donalson than Voit out there.


If he is 100% healthy, I would rather see him out there playing 3B rather than Andujar in a late and close game.

Yes, if he's healthy a big if he would be a big upgrade.
