A supplemental draft pick for $120,000 spent last year. I will gladly accept that. ;-D

Hawpe is a solid bat? Dude, has a career 95 OPS+ on the road. I don't know how well Petco is going to treat him.

Er, you're looking at tOPS which is OPS relative to his own career totals. On the road he's OPSed .839 for his career. His bat isn't the main problem here.
