if I was hendry, I would give wilkerson a shot. he did well in DC and I think he could be a nice "band aid" until Pie is ready.

go cubs, great site

go mets

i hope the cardinals take a look. edmonds is getting old and supposedly encarnacion wants out. wilkerson is cheap and could be a super outfielder if we decide to keep encarnacion

go cards

Go Indians

Wilkerson wouldn't fit for us but since everyone else is rooting for their team, I thought I would too.

Looks like Wilkerson was tendered a contract, this from Rotoworld:

Brad Wilkerson-OF-Rangers Dec. 12 - 11:39 pm et

The Rangers did tender an offer to Brad Wilkerson prior to Tuesday's deadline.

It's the right move for the club, though it does leave the lineup a bit too tilted toward the left side. Fortunately, a healthy Wilkerson tends to hit lefties just as well as righties. Unlike Kenny Lofton and Frank Catalanotto, he shouldn't need a platoon partner.
