    Jarrod Dyson is basically a poor man's Billy Hamilton. What he lacks in speed and slightly better outfield defense, he makes up for it by being a better hitter than Hamilton.

    Yes. 100 times yes.

    What would GMDM ask for Dyson, I wonder? He and Yost don't seem too high on the guy. McGuire or Ramirez and Smoak, we eat half the salary?

    Saw that Edwin is expected to sign during the winter meetings.
    See the ball and let it fly, Watch the ball soaring through the sky, Higher like a comet in the night air, Defying gravity is rare, Let the ball fly, Its homerun time!!!!!

    If you have Dyson you can afford to have a Jay Bruce-Jose Bautista type fielder in the other spot too as he and Pillar cover so much ground.

    Dyson in a platoon with Upton would be great value. If you add Fowler and Dyson, that's a huge improvement.

    Don't know what it would cost but it might be the cheapest 3 WAR available.

    No doubt, plus plenty of cash to go around, IMO. Matt Holliday would make sense after that... and a studly LHP.

    Dyson wouldn't need to platoon. He's really good.

    That OF would be something to watch in the field and on the bases.

    This is the type of lineup I thought Shatkins would try and build. Transition away from a "power offense". More defense, more speed - build around a good pitching staff.

    One thing about Dyson I wonder about is how his numbers would transition to playing at RC. Almost like the opposite of Morales he could lose some of his extra base hits because RC and the AL East have smaller ballparks taking away his Triples and a few Doubles. His defense might not be as great valuable either playing in these smaller (though Pillar might debunk that)

    Anyone see any studies done on this?

    Yep, with the Astros and the Redsox out apparently its just a two or three teams. Not including the NL, the only teams I count are Jays, Yankees, Angels and Rangers.

    I cant imagine the Yankees doing a deal for EE, they like Sanchez as a long term DH option, plus they have gone away from overpaying older player. With Harper and Company becoming free agents soon, they probably want to keep the payroll room. I think its just Rangers and Jays, and I hate to say it but it might be the Rangers, because Shatkins may not be serious about bringing EE back. The Draft pick is probably too enticing for them.
