    Yeah, some risk of course in a $20M/yr deal as a guy heads into his mid 30s, but he's 2 years younger than Wright, and signed through the same year. And one of the best players in baseball right now....

    Yeah I think he may be faster than Kirk once under way. Don't think he gets as good a jump, but that could be experience.

    I would include Thor or Nimmo in a package for Stanton. Maybe not for the other two.
    What about Wheeler, Montero, Plawecki, and Smith for Tulowitzki?

    I would go:


    A- R SP Noah Syndergaard
    B+ L SP Stephen Matz
    B+ L OF Brandon Nimmo
    B+ L OF Michael Conforto
    B R CA Kevin Plawecki
    B R SS Amed Rosario
    B R 2B Dilson Herrera

    If we're getting the bat in the OF, I wouldn't mind a 1.5 year rental for a possible 2016 FA, if that's available. I'm thinking Conforto is going to be ready before long, anyway. If the team is...

    Yeah but he's likely worth $30M/yr for the first 3 of those years. If we can afford $15M for Granderson to age 36, we can probably afford $20M for Tulowitzki to age 35.


    So get him too!

    He is a SS.

    I think it's clear by now that SS is his best defensive position. If they aren't willing to give him the opportunity there, they should just release him and let him have a chance to...

    Yeah, both Curtis and that Bobby guy struck out too often to hit for enough average to hit in the middle of the lineup, but both were good at drawing walks. Those guys work best at the top of the...

    So on the road, Cargo is basically a similar hitter to what Juan Lagares is this year.

    Yup. Attendence is actually not bad, considering. Up about 2% this year. It really could be a lot worse if they didn't sign guys like Granderson and Colon and sent a 60 win team out there.

    That's a pretty big divergence last year between bWAR and fWAR. I think it's caused by unreliable defensive stats. I consider him about a -8 defender, so I figure he was worth about 2.3 WAR last...

    I think he's worth that this season, and was nearly worth it last season (maybe $11M). But I can't see him being worth that much for long after age 30. I could see giving him a one-year extension...

    I agree they didn't likely deal for Russell just to have a trade chip. They have room for all those guys.
