Zito is God wrote:Lofton (I believe) only has a one year deal and there is no way they keep him past this season. The only concern I have about Beltran is George might want to spend some money strengthening the pen (which needs major work) so he might not be as temped by Beltran as he should be.
I am quite certain that Lofton signed a 2-year deal (why they offered it I don't know) for $4-5 million. I also don't see how their pen needs work. They have Rivera, Gordon, Quantrill, White, and Heredia and, 1 of these days, Karsay is gonna come back. That's better than all or most. Before this season, I agree that they needed help but they made some good pickups.
