"One of the things we talked about was wanting to put him in a situation where he could be in a better position this offseason than he was last year. We wanted it to work for the team and work for him. We didn’t get the job done on a team basis, but it did work out for him. He’s in a better position this year than he was last year. That’s good for him. It creates a bigger challenge for us in trying to find a deal that works for him and works for us. We have talked, and talked a lot. Time will tell. He’ll have options. We’ll have to weigh what it would take to sign him versus alternatives in the market."
Bottom line: We now have two holes in our outfield and one of them will probably be filled with a "Ryan's Hope" desperation option: Ryan Ludwick or Ryan Kalish.
