    Absolutely agree with this.

    Lets check out the facts.

    wRC+ in 2014

    Still not seeing the necessity to sign him to a one year deal. Edwin was the one to forfeit the draft pick compensation for. Jose on a 1 year + team option works for me.

    Nothing to lose by sweating it out. If he was as desirable as he thinks he is then he would have had a taker already. If I am management, I only bring him back on a 1 year under his QO. Gladly take the pick. There are guys who can play better defense and this offense should be fine.

    I don't think he's half bad if a team would just simply use him as a 1B only. I don't know why teams insist on putting him in the OF. But yeah, I think we need OF more than 1B so no need for him really.

    He would push Pearce into an OF/2B role and Smoak right out of a job. I don't know if either of those things are all that bad.

    In the OF he's worth about -10 or -11 runs. At 1B he's about a net zero. I have no clue why teams keep forcing him in to the OF.

    If the team couldn't find a way to fit in Edwin I really doubt they're gonna shuffle guys around for Trumbo. He's not gonna come cheap either, he could realistically get 35-40 mil+

    Are you referencing Trumbo here, because I think KingKat was discussing pushing Pearce to the OF in favour of Trumbo at 1st?

    Woops yeah that is confusing but I meant Trumbo. Trumbo is an average 1B but a horrible OF.

    For what it's worth I think Pearce is slightly below average in the OF and slightly above average at 1B.

    Which I'm guessing is no worse than Moss and certainly no worse than Bautista.

    Exactly, there are cheaper options that can play adequate defense. This team should be fine for scoring runs and adding Moss or Trumbo (at first and putting Pearce in the OF) will save money and likely allow for a draft pick coming back.

    These two desperate parties should just agree to a deal.
