    Masterson has the advantage of having led a staff before so we know how he'd react to it. Porcello could get it on results for sure and Clay to get it based on seniority on the team (though I don't...

    I'm pretty much with PPM. I might swap Bogaerts and Castillo but that's about it.

    BTW, to complete the opening day roster I've currently got either Masterson or Porcello taking the mound.

    Another relevant question may be who is going to pay those top starters $150M+/6yr+?

    I'm not sure if the Cubs can or want another $20M+ SP.
    LAD? They'll have $80M/yr wrapped up in Kershaw,...

    Hughes got a $24M/3yr deal. I don't really consider that long term (shorter than what's being suggested for Porcello) and the money was basically that of a backend starter. I'm not questioning...

    I'll be at least mildly surprised if he's called up that early unless there's an injury (and even then Wright might get the shot first). I think they'll use this year to push him into the 175IP...

    My suggestions on Buchholz are based on his higher ceiling being more attractive to a team like the Nats who are very much in the thick of the playoff hunt. I assume that his higher ceiling (and...

    What's market rate for a second tier pitcher? McCarthy, Liriano and their ilk are getting $12M-14M/yrs for 3-4yrs this offseason so something in the $15M/yr range would be above that. It'd also be...

    Next Offseason (2016)

    The topic of the 2015-16 offseason has come up on several occasions as a silver bullet for a lot of issues -- solving the OF log jam, landing a #1 pitcher, etc. This may end up merged elsewhere but...
