    Starting pitching discussion (trades/rumors)

    I am still bitter that Gray was picked 1 spot before we came to the board...and eventually landed Barnes.

    I guess Barnes has a chance to be a greatcloser, but he likely won't ever touch Grays...

    Well, the Ball pick was always going to be boom or bust.
    Did not like it at the time. Would have gone with the mocks (Meadows)
    I mean, risky picks are fine, but in the top 10? Think Ball would have...

    Depends on what their goal is, I guess. If it is to be somewhere in the .500 range and see if everything goes well like it did in 2012, be my guest with this rotation. But a contending team on paper?...

    As compelling as Cueto and zimmerman may look like, can we really afford to start the season with 3 pitchers under control for only 1 more season?
    We are better off either sacrificing something for...

    At this point I wouldn't even want Cueto. 2 pitchers becoming FA's (maybe Clay on top of it) at the end of the year would be tough.
    Must be someone with some kind of security, but Shields in a...

    Well, with Masterson being close to signing with a mystery team and we've been heavily linked to him, the answer to your question is yet to come.

    It can't be us, right?

    I am torn with this deal. Seems like alot to gve up, especially Rubby is the one I like. Webster looks like he could thrive in the pen, though.

    But with so many SP prospects knocking on the door,...

    We know for a fact that the Sox are at least willing to spend another 165-170m (135m Lester + 30m Miller) this off-season...or 33+m in AAV per year.
    They could fit Scherzer under their budget, but...

    It's pretty telling that they obviously didn't want him bad enough to up their offer by around 15m (could have gotten the job done)
    Maybe they planned this all along. Offering Lester a below market...

    It's pretty obvious that the Sox won't touch Scherzer if their bid on lester was so much lower than those of their competition. Can#t blame Jon, looks like as i expected a few hours ago. We were the...

    Not necessarily. Remember Lee. He only wanted to come back to Philly and it took him an awful lot of time to sign.

    It means nothing until he officially signs. My bet is that we and the Cubs are...

    If Lester wants to be here, it certainly won't take MUCH more. Who thought Lee would take that offer from the Phillies a few years ago? He left a lot of money on the table to sign there. Did the...

    2014/2015 Offseason discussion thread

    If the m's are unable to sign any big fa bat (cruz, victor), they will probably be willing to trade a significant package for cespedes.
    Well, iwakuma for YC makes alot of sense for both teams.

    The lack of quality in the Price-deal is probably the reason why the Phillies refuse to trade their stars. Looks like the league is shy of trading away its top prospects when it's also recquired to...

    Yes, they did. Two players with a WAR just over 2. Smyly ain't all that great and Jackson is close to being a FA. The Tigers found a way to replace Scherzer.

    Too bad, it turned out to be a buyers...

    Craig in RF? That would be a horror show. And I wouldn't put Cespedes there, either. One of Victorino/Napoli gotta be on the move.

    To be honest, I don't like this half hearted selling. Feels more like a re-tooling, but Kelly is your typical mediocre pitcher. Some upside, but a back end of the rotation pitcher. we've got more...

    Does that mean we have a trade in store for Napoli? Maybe to SEA?

    Taveras is a pipe dream.

    Martinez, Piscotty/Grichuck?

    There must be more to come. I am gonna be mad if Cespedes is a pure "win now [2015]" move, when it's completely unclear whether we will be competing or not. Our rotation as of now is nowhere near...

    Doubt Miami wants Cespedes on such a short contract...he becomes a FA after the 2015 season.

    So what was Ben thinking? We are not a clear cut contender next year, so we either flip him to a rival...

    Not sure whether you believe some reports or not, but word was that we could have gotten Harvey as the centerpiece until he got shut down for the year. That's somewhat equal value to Pederson. Don't...

    So I guess they were pretty serious about trading for Lester. Now it's up to them whether they want to trade one of Gausman/Bundy. Doubt it, though. Harvey would have been great.

    Then why suggesting that Gonzalez would be the main part rather than a secondary piece? And even if, just talking value wise, it's not even close.
