    This is massive guys.

    1. Gives us major deadline flexibility
    2. Gives us insurance in LF.

    Can't get one of the young cubans like Aledmys Díaz? I don't think he even cost that much.

    Next best thing to getting a Delgado... wonder how this effects the urgency with Bregman now.

    Hopefully the contract is front loaded with the majority of it in the first three yrs.

    Where is he going to get playing time if he joins this season? Valbuena has the 2nd highest OPS on the team, pencil in Correa and Altuve at SS and 2nd, and then there's the imminent call up of Bregman
