Felipé Lopez anyone???

37

"Lopez ranked fourth among all free agents with a 4.6 WAR in 2009, but Boras has been unable to drum up a market for the second baseman. Now, matching last year's $3.5MM will be tough enough. Odds are Lopez won't sniff the contracts signed by Placido Polanco, Mark DeRosa, and Orlando Hudson, and he might not reach the $4.5MM level of Garrett Atkins and Pedro Feliz." - MLBtraderumors.com If Lopez can be convinced to sign a one year deal for around $2.5mil with incentives worth around $1mil, is there anyone (except Omar Minaya and Jeff Wilpon) who will not take him on? It will be a killer when Castillo lets another 50 or more ball trickle through the infield like last season. With Reyes back, and hopefully fully fit, it makes a lot of sense to sign a guy with Lopez's ability and 4.0 WAR. This is probably why we won't!
