Obviously let things play out, see if the recent surge from Russell can continue, or if Zo or Kyle come back stronger than ever, but as it stands, this team has 2 above average hitters and a rookie enjoying a lot of early success. The young guys have been so up and down. I'd love to have another 120+ wRC+ bat in the lineup.
For the sake of curiosity, what would you guys expect Maybin to cost?
He's a rental, so I'd guess you could get him with Zagunis, Caratini, or Candelario as a lead piece. That may be all it'd take actually. If not, add in a pitching prospect like Hudson, Moreno, or Assad.....Obviously a total guess, but a top 200 prospect and a guy in the 15-25 range of a system is my gut feeling.
That said, I don't truly see a need for him. If we get our group healthy and Schwarber comes back, we're going to have a rough enough time finding AB's for what we have.
Additional rule: you have to have one or the other.The only exception is you have an amazing board name. davell, I'm looking at you; put up a [expletive] avatar or something if your name only sounds like somebody tried say Dave as they lapsed into a coma.
