    You can't use ERA, FIP, or xFIP to compare numbers between leagues. They aren't adjusted for league. You want to look at ERA-, FIP-, and xFIP-. Also, be careful with small sample sizes, Hamels and...

    Cespedes is 4 years older and is exiting his prime while Heyward is entering his prime.

    Leake signing wouldn't prevent that. They were trying to sign Price and Heyward, so they have the money.

    Based on their RS and RA, they were a 71 win team last year. You need to start from there. A 7-win gain brings them to 78 wins.

    I didn't see it as taking shots at the older players. However, did he forget the team won 100 games without getting much from two of those aging players. Molina is the only one I worry about long...

    It's deferred money. The soonest he can get it is if he opts out in 2018.

    I think you answered your own question with Arrieta. He outperformed his peripherals in 2015. He will likely regress to what was seen in 2014. His FIP and xFIP would indicate this is likely.

    One last thing, Castro hit as well in 2015 for the entire season as Adams did in the second half of 2014. In 2013, Castro was even worse than that. In those two seasons he was one of the 10 worst...

    Which years are you considering great? Out of 6 seasons, he has only had two above average offensively (2011 and 2014). Neither of those were great seasons. He has two seasons where he was one of...

    You may want to actually look at Castro's numbers then. You said you would platoon Peralta at first with Moss.

    I forgot to mention Schwarber. Until he starts hitting lefties, he won't hit 34 HRs. Zobrist will probably be in LF against lefties.

    He wouldn't be much of an upgrade defensively. You would also degrade the offense. All the in-house first base options hit better than Castro does.

    The Heyward signing is almost purely a defensive upgrade. His offensive numbers (115 wRC+) over the past two years are nearly identical to Fowler (116) and Coughlin (119).
