Then you get a plus bat back in the lineup at a 1 year deal, and can run a platoon of Abreu/Nady/Damon/Matsui/Gardner/Cabrera through LF/CF/RF/DH, or look to trade Damon or Matsui.

And if he leaves, which I think is more probable, you get 2 draft picks. Now they have jack for draft picks except the one they get for failing to sign their last #1.

I was dead wrong about this. Cashman looks prophetic now. Abreu, Giambi, Pudge, Pettitte, etc. all would have accepted arbitration in this market. Great read by him.
