stole the words right out of my mouth. I would love Edwin Jackson in our rotation, and I honestly think the Orioles should look into him. But on the other hand, 50m in this market is still not going to get us anywhere! I am sure by the end of the day Edwin Jackson will get a decent-to-hefty contract. Probably not as much as Buerhle but enough to be a significant signing.
I would also look into spending it on more minor league free agents. Honestly, you cannot sign enough of these guys. Every year you see guys coming out of nowhere who become great players. I love these types of moves and it's really what bad teams (and all teams) should be doing when they can.
