    I would have been interested in Moncada as an outfielder. But I'm OK with passing if they instead go all out in the 2016 FA class, taking advantage of all the other teams that will be limited that...

    Well Ian Desmond isn't worth $40M+ next year, which means he's also not worth Noah Syndergaard.

    Certainly looks to me like the higher cost players actually get a little more per win.

    If Trout were available for $40M next season, even the Wilpons would find the money to pay him. He'd take us from an 83 win team to a 90 win team.

    Could give him the 45 maybe, but I don't think he'll hit more than about 15 HR.

    Actually he turned down about 5/$90M as an extension. He was basically offered 7/107 if you include the 2 arbitration years (to which he actually signed for 2/17.5).

    He might well get it. Peralta was 2 years older and not as good a player when he got 4/53. Desmond will be seen as a top 5 SS. That said, I probably wouldn't go over 5y/75M, but I suspect someone...

    You never pay a guy based on his best year.

    Wright had averaged 3.75 rWAR and 4.0 fWAR over his previous 4 seasons when he signed that deal. Zips had him projected for 4.0 WAR and Steamer had him...

    Next 3 years, maybe. I wouldn't expect that much after age 31, though.

    Basically, he's about as good a player as Granderson was at the same age. I'd probably pay him $20M for the next year or...

    Isn't that a bit below market rate? That's only $5.5M per win.

    I wouldn't want him for more than a couple of years at that rate, but for as long as you think he's a 3.6 WAR player, he's worth that...

    This seems backwards to me. McCourt was decapitalizing the Dodgers, Wilpon was recapitalizing the Mets. McCourt had taken over $100M out of the Dodgers to finance personal expenditures, including...

    Depends on what happens in 2015. But they really need at this point ot be looking at impact talent.

    For me, that's Heyward. Also, it's unusual for a guy like Heyward to be a FA at only 26, he...

    I'll say 83 wins.

    I like a lot of the talent. But the positional talent overall isn't more than about average. The wild card is in the pitching. I think with Harvey, deGrom, and if just one more...

    Yeah, he probably could play 100 games at SS if needed, I just wouldn't want him to.

    If the argument is he doesn't solve our SS problem, I guess whether you buy that depends on whether you think...

    Because it's not like he's going to be sitting on the bench the other 112 games, he's still going to be starting, just at other positions. And he'll still have a pretty good chance to be the best...

    Why, I thought the whole point of Zobrist is that you could still have Wilmer start a significant number of games at SS.
