    I know it's disappointing that no trades were made, but keep in mind that the only guy off the table now is Bastardo (and Lee). Everyone else we've talked about trading will probably clear waivers....

    Just commenting on the Greinke opt out situation... If he's healthy and opts out, he'll easily get either a higher AAV over the same period, more years, or both. If he's not healthy, he won't opt...

    Yea but a contract should be evaluated in toto. Almost all mega contracts are a bad deal by the end because so much value is front loaded. If an average team is paying $6 mil a win in the offseason...

    It's only the 28th. These things don't often move before the afternoon of the 31st.

    I suspect the issue is one of valuation, i.e. the Phillies front office does not value players similarly to most other teams. This does not mean they're wrong - in fact, they seem to value prospects...

    It just has to be a top prospect plus some interesting parts. Many teams matchup on paper.

    I don't see why he should. He's a good player on a reasonable contract. Would you rather watch Brignac start?

    Yea I only saw it third hand, but Salisbury rarely says anything I haven't heard as least 2 days ago, so I don't often expect much from him.

    Per Jim Salisbury, the Phillies prefer to trade John Mayberry over JP Crawford.

    Huh?

    Biddle and Kendrick are not even remotely comparable. He's more of a C.J. Wilson with an intermittent walk problem. If he can conquer the walks, he should be a good asset.

    Franklin is at least a utility infielder with upside for more. I don't think you can ask for much more in return for Byrd.

    Looks like he's scuttling any offer to M's by asking for his option to be...

    Marlon Byrd doesn't get you halfway to Paxton or Walker. He should be enough to get Nick Franklin, but he (Franklin) is the kind of prospect that teams have trouble trading away. Endowment effect.

    The club probably should turnover the entire outfield. I see Crawford as an intermediary step - somebody who can offset the price of a Cliff Lee and allow the Phillies to still get good prospects....

    I agree that the contracts aren't universally bad, but they aren't good enough to return the top prospects necessary for the club to turn around quickly. The Phillies can't afford another Lee or...

    They definitely could be moved, but it sounds like the club's preference is to eat a bunch of cash in order to get better prospects. Lee should return some quality players. I still see the Phillies...

    Where he slots in the Dodgers rotation is irrelevant, although I do agree that they could at best get one of Pederson or Seager.

    I thought Gordon could just swing to short with HanRam going to third, but I see his defense (Gordon) isn't even good at 2B let alone SS.

    In any case, the problem with the Phillies trading Hamels...

    You're getting a little wishy washy KJ, the Phillies could get one of those Dodgers prospects for Hamels, but that's it. Maybe 2 with Utley in the deal.

    The boat has very much sailed on that. Howard can't even pretend to have value anymore. Lee is coming off an elbow injury so nobody is going to be paying full price. It just doesn't seem possible.

    Twins, Rangers, Mets, Marlins, Rockies, Padres?

    Three of those teams are already below the Phillies in the standings. The team probably only needs to play .500 RoS to pick 11th.

    The path forward for this club is confusing. They have to scrounge up a diamond in the rough (several really), but that requires taking a chance on a Nolan Reimold or Jose Tabata. So far, their big...

    The Cubs and DBacks are likely to dismantle at a fast pace and race for the bottom. I bet the Phillies will pick between #5 and 8.
