Aspen - I'm kind of with Blue on this. There are ton and half of ways they could go. I think Rizzo has been very good about leaving himself different ways to go at almost every stage.
You could easily make the case 2014 case for ALR, Morse, Moore, Skole, Rendon, or RZ, or even Marrero or a
of a righty plus Tracy, just from our guys signed for 2013 or who we are after. I think bringing in Span now, before ALR signs with anyone, gives us more leverage with ALR (more of a willingness to let him walk), pulls a guy we don't want in left out of left (Morse), adds bench depth by letting Moore be a back up rather than start, creates flexibility in where we play Rendon, etc... Had we waited until ALR signed, Rizzo loses maybe a bit of deal leverage with MN.
