    Eddie is likeable.

    And, more importanly, a more reliable bat

    (Edwin's wRC+ has been better than Bautista's from 2014-2016)

    And 3-4 years younger

    Absolutely agree with this.

    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.
