    If this front office is serious about landing a true #1 AND trying to compete in 2015, Scherzer is that kind of arm. My guess is, yet another arm with flip potential like Hammel or Feldman or Maholm...

    Rizzo and Castro are the experienced, now veteran youth in this line up. On the basis of that, you re-tool the 2015 line up around them.

    Personally, I see us needing to add a veteran bat to the...

    IMHO, it's a very good bet that an IF of Baez, Russell, Castro, and Rizzo, with the corner OFs being Bryant and Soler, equals legitimately playing for the wild card in 2015.

    Remember when we were...

    Ryan Braun is the example I'll use, both to support the $ and clock argument, as well as the positional one:

    LF is where 3b who can hit the hell out of the ball, but who may be eh-ish defensively,...

    Ben Cherrigton did an outstanding job re-tooling that club and dealing with all the locker room egos. Frankly, he's the best young GM in baseball and everyone in baseball knew he was an up and comer....

    I'm not sold on Lake yet, and I have a feeling this front office will probably sell high-ish on him this winter if they get the chance. Our potential 2015 OF is what excites me out there. If Lake...

    Garza was the only player we dealt that has and will have real value. Yes, Feldman has good value for Baltimore and is having a good year, this year.

    The model has been in place for two years...

    Here's to him adding about 25 pounds and some muscle via a weight training program. None of that would effect his stuff and would only enhance his stamina. It's hard to deny this guy can K people at...

    This deal hinges on what Mike Olt we end up with long-term, but that said, VERY glad he was included in this deal. It's a good hedge-better at 3b for us organizationally. Edwards and the small body...

    The option years on the back end are what I might like the most about this deal.
    1) Both are club options.
    2) Both are market-value friendly, all things considered.

    Olt's natural position is 3b. Last time I checked, they have 3b locked up til what, 2016 w/ Beltre? Yes, Olt can play a serviceable 1b. Then you move Moreland, who's natural position now is 1b, back...

    Olt could be part of the package to get Logan Morrison, which is a trade I could see Texas trying to broker.

    Inge will be older and coming off of major surgery and will be cheap in 2014 for $500 Alex. Seriously, this front office would be all over that kind of budget signing (see Stewart) and it's pretty...

    I wish we could nab Olt, but I agree, they need his bat on the big club now.

    We wont be able to outbid Detroit if they raise the stakes, and imo, the asking price could get stupid. I like...

    The swing is the thing and Baez has that in spades, plus bat speed. Seriously, if we're not really competing in 2013 or 2014 AND Baez is tearing it up down below next spring-summer, truly, I don't...

    I wouldn't go that far, and if you're being fair, Colvin got shipped to the exact line up and ball park where his K or HR swing or bust can work.

    We're stuck w/ Soriano until probably June/ July...

    Consider my hand up to promote Baez in late July and play him everyday at 3b. Yes, I'm aware of his age. See Starlin Castro, and quite possibly, us not competing again in 2014.

    Ks have always been an issue with him. And if you're talking open, even somewhat loopy swings...Patterson & Pie both had variations on that theme. My main point is that in a ten year draft, then...

    Literally every evaluation of Jackson says the same thing: if the Ks and K rate does not go down, he's either a 4/5th OF at this level, based primarily on his athleticism-speed, or a career AAA...
