  1. My question is, does the buyout come into effect...

    My question is, does the buyout come into effect if the Cubs exercise his option and he declines it? Based off of usual buyouts, I would assume no, but that seems way to advantageous to the Cubs.
  2. I wonder if having Soler and his arm in right...

    I wonder if having Soler and his arm in right with Fowler in left and Schwarber DHing could be better defensively. I agree though, I think Fowler in center and Heyward in right is more likely to...
  3. Going back to the contract structure, it actually...

    Going back to the contract structure, it actually makes a little more sense. The 5 million buyout hedges against him having a disastrous season while also assuring him that he won't have a QO...
  4. Starting the season in L.A. with a DH will be fun.

    Starting the season in L.A. with a DH will be fun.
  5. I would think that is most likely. Of course the...

    I would think that is most likely. Of course the Cubs would pick up their side of the offer, its a marginal cost of 4 million. That's why I am so curious on the 5 Million buyout. It seems like it...
  6. Right, but couldn't the Cubs choose to exercise...

    Right, but couldn't the Cubs choose to exercise the option and Fowler decline it? I took it as the Cubs can buy him out and not retain him, but otherwise its basically a 9 Million player option.
  7. I don't think it is 13 Million guaranteed. Only...

    I don't think it is 13 Million guaranteed. Only if Dexter picks up his side of the offer. Otherwise he would void the buyout. Can anyone else confirm or am I mistaken?

    Ben Zobrist named his kid Zion.
  9. You are absolutely right. I'm not sure why I...

    You are absolutely right. I'm not sure why I forgot about 10/5 rights
  10. I don't think the Cardinals would touch Cueto...

    I don't think the Cardinals would touch Cueto with a ten foot pole. That said, I would welcome that acquisition because I think his contract will be a disaster.
  11. Meh, on Carlos Gonzalez. I am not sure he is much...

    Meh, on Carlos Gonzalez. I am not sure he is much of an upgrade over Soler and he will certainly cost a little more. Seems like a marginal benefit. It would depend a lot on what they ended up doing...

    The A's continue to shuffle their bullpen. Add Axford.
  13. I'm not advocating trading Soler, just...

    I'm not advocating trading Soler, just recognizing that his name has been brought up a lot this offseason.

    That said, stating matter-of-factly that Soler is better than Cogs is a bit of an...

    Damn, Jesse Rogers is such a tease and is clearly trying to get listeners. That said, he has been spot on during these winter meetings so I can't blame him.
  15. I'm just hopeful that if we do sign Heyward and...

    I'm just hopeful that if we do sign Heyward and then trade Soler that we still play Heyward in center an make Coghlan a starter. I'm obviously getting ahead of myself, but if Heyward is a Cub, I...

    Lol. Brendan Ryan had a WRC+ of 13 in 2014 in 124 PA.
  17. I recall similar things. I don't know. It seems...

    I recall similar things. I don't know. It seems easier to hand out NTC for 2 and 3 year deals than for 5+
  18. Adding Span or Heyward would really present a...

    Adding Span or Heyward would really present a much more balanced lineup than last year. A lot less boom or bust and a lot more contact at the top. This should especially improve as Adi and Soler do....
  19. Fair enough. And I certainly agree in regards to...

    Fair enough. And I certainly agree in regards to Carrasco. I just don't think the two extra years for Quintana does it for me regardless of the additional acquisition cost for Fernandez.
  20. You'd rather have Quintana than Fernandez just...

    You'd rather have Quintana than Fernandez just because of Hendricks?
  21. No doubt. I was just illustrating that while...

    No doubt. I was just illustrating that while Fernandez would greatly improve the rotation, it would subsequently create holes elsewhere.
  22. I'm not sure we have the blue chip prospects do...

    I'm not sure we have the blue chip prospects do get it done. We would likely have to pull significantly from the major league team which I would assume the FO would rather not do.

    Stripping the...

    Uhh so the Dbacks were basically unwilling to do Corbin and Miller for Fernandez? Odd.
  24. Gerardo Parra would really suck. Why give him...

    Gerardo Parra would really suck. Why give him 3-4? Just go with Austin Jackson if that's the case.
  25. Source? or just speculating? And in regards to...

    Source? or just speculating?

    And in regards to Arizona, they do some interesting things.
