I'm not, both were underwhelming at the plate, and are getting substantial raises the next few years yet still have enough potential to interest other teams.
Especially Dayan, since power potential is like gold on the trade market. Remember all those crazy Willy Mo Pena rumors a few years back?

I'm more surprised by De Aza. Seemed to me like he's locked up an outfield spot the next few years. Good leadoff guys are hard to find.

I hope Thornton ends up on that list too.
