    I would be shocked if the braves signed Lester. I'm sure he loves being home, but I'm sure he loves $50 million more.

    The fact that he's going around meeting teams, listening to offers tells me...

    Why would the Braves get a player who is FA just as they are about to truly compete in 2017? They need talent for 2017 and beyond, not for 2015 - 2017.

    Oh yeah, no on the Jay Bruce sweepstake.

    Pitchers:

    I looked under salaries and saw B.J Upton's $15m and got sick. Then I looked under "Bonuses and Incentives" and saw BJ with a $600k bonus, and now I have Ebola!

    I understand your point. Difference is Miller has the upside of a true ace while Minor has the upside of, well, Mike Minor. Miller is more valuable.

    And I'm not saying Minor would bring back...

    Minor is definitely worth two good prospects or one really good prospect to a team that's looking for pitching. That team is not the Mariners. They're looking for a power OF bat.

    Therefore, no,...

    Walker is a top prospect who is a TORP in a year. In any other circumstances, you would not be able to land such talent for one year of J. Upton. It just so happens to be that the Mariners REALLY...

    Here's my idea, if, and it's a big if we can land Lester, we move J.Upton to the Mariners for Walker. We'll be lucky to get him. With Lester, Teheran, Walker, Miller and Wood, we can move Minor for...

    Of course not. This phenom is suppose to be able to play every positron. We can really use him at 3B come 2017.

    I say get Walker for Upton, then get couple of good OF prospects for Gattis. Sign this cuban SS phenom this spring.

    Come 2017 we can compete with the best of them with Teheran, Walker, Miller,...

    WAR tells me Alex Gordon was more valuable than Stanton last year! It also tells me that Heyward, with his .730 OPS overall, and .440 OPS against...

    I really like this trade. Since the Braves couldn't really resign Heyward, I'm really happy we got a pitcher whose floor is #3 with a potential to be #1 (assessment by Law today) for 4 years. And if...

    But thats the shortsighted statement I'm taking about "we traded two pieces we didn't need" therefore, the trade must be lopsided.

    That isn't how it works. The Braves need those pieces. They need...

    We all love Heyward in ATL and will surely be missed. But that's due to his story of being a hometown kid, and not because of the great players he turned out to be. We braves fans who have watched...

    One less power hitter off the market. Bodes well for the Braves. The more Attractive J.Upton and Gattis become in the trade market.

    You should re-read my post. I recognized the plate appearance difference, but it's to be expected due to Posey's position. It doesn't change the fact that WAR is telling us they have similar value. ...

    Nope, no need to normalize their WAR. One is a catcher and by virtue of his position will have less plate appearances. That's a given.

    But as a whole, analysing what they bring to a team, WAR is...
