I think Burnett opts out next year anyways.
If the Lofton news is indeed true, I think it's a great signing. Put him in left and have him leading off.
Bedard>Dustin...so no problem there.
Lofton ,Wells, Johnson/Stairs is good enough for me.
Tejada, Johnny Mac, Hill, Overbay. Is good, Troy being odd man out...So if you can move him or Frank...do it.
The pitching staff would be stacked.
Yes please...I like it.
