    Serious?

    No, that's a standard depth move. Sometimes you get an Eric Bruntlett or Kevin Frandsen.

    I don't think the DH is the problem or the solution. Pitching has improved drastically in the last couple years while hitting has declined due to a focus on defense and overall athleticism. The...

    By the way Ax, if you want a more recent example of a good pitcher for prospects trade, then turn to R.A. Dickey. I used the Colon trade as an example. because it's far enough back to be easily...

    Hard to blame them for trying to extract something for their assets. "Rival executives" are the same people who act like they could sign Lester for 3/40.

    Ax,

    I just don't see the club throwing $400MM at a reach for .500 with upside. Even if they did this, they'd still need to get real outfielders (currently all 3 spots project as the worst in the...

    My response was going to be that the pick doesn't matter. Not that much anyway. Theoretically, it should be factored into the price of a free agent.

    And what if they get the Bartolo Colon and Tim...

    Actually the pitching market is extremely deep next offseason and it doesn't seem like most of them will sign extensions. Besides those you named, Cueto, Chen, Fister, Gallardo, Hudson, Iwakuma,...

    Their commitments beyond 2017 are among the lowest in baseball. I think they can pursue a major signing or two next offseason so long as the player isn't mid-30's. There's no need for a scorched...

    The Phillies signed Elvis Araujo to a mlb deal. It's possible nothing will come of the move, but it's a potential bargain. He's a potential lefty reliever with a good strikeout rate and iffy...

    Initially, we had a core group of guys around 20 yrs old (sorry Ender, Fred). Now we're in our late 20's, so most of us probably have real things to do. Of course, I don't because I write about...

    If you look at the list, I think he actually set it based on where he wants to play.

    By the way, the Phillies have signed Jeff Francoeur. Huzzah and Praise Be.

    In case you didn't see it on MLBTR yesterday, Moncada is expected a sign for $30MM-$40MM. Because there is a 100% luxury tax on international spending overages, that's effectively a $60MM-80MM cost....

    The issue with Moncada, assuming he's cleared during this international signing period, is that he'll cost well over the international spending cap. For the Phillies, that would mean forfeiting any...

    Depending on what the Mariners are asking, Michael Saunders could be an interesting target. While I wouldn't hold out hope, it's possible they'd consider a package starting with Brown.

    Revere and Bastardo are also trade bait. They're probably more likely to be dealt than most of the names on your list.
