If I were a general manager for a MLB team I would sign both José Bautista and Edwin Encarnación together. It would be for a terrible team like the Minnesota Twins, or Chicago White Sox. Not only do these teams have nothing to lose, but also have home run friendly ballparks. While their contracts might be an issue at first, the amount of money they both would bring in from a winning team and attendance would more than make up for it. And while age is an issue, the leadership (Alpha male) Bautista would inspire the younger guys, something a team like the White Sox could use with so many great prospects.
