anyone interested in grady sizemore on a minor league contract?
Down in this vagina mine.
Seems like a good idea to get one more in before things really start moving:
Liriano (1/8 with an option for 2/16)
Ryan Sweeney (1/3)
Jeff Samardzija, Alfonso Soriano, and Carlos Marmol to the Yankees for Manny Banuelos, Tyler Austin, Dellin Betances, and Angelo Gumbs.
Wood, Betances, Szczur, and Torreyes to the Indians for Masterson, Perez, and Choo.
3B: Reynolds/Chavez (Prado in 2014?)
How many games does this win? Long term is it easy to turnover?
Is there a reason you're trading away our #1 starter
Apparently The Jays have talked about JP Arencibia to the Rays for Davis and Mets for Niese. Cubs should jump in and offer Travies Wood. Then could put Castillo in another deal.
The Best Wrestler in the World.... Go Cubs!!!
No way the Indians trade all of their trade pieces for a #5 starter, a guy that makes Marmol look like Maddux, a 4th outfielder, and interesting 2B guy. Way to little for even Choo alone.
Greinke (20.2 - probably more for 2013 salary)
So possibly too much? I did round up for pretty much everyone, unless rookies get paid more. One year deals add up to 60 million and including: Navarro, Liriano, Chavez, Reynolds, Choo, DeJesus, Sweeney. OTOH, the more interesting answer comes after:
Does the team contend?
Any deals unmovable besides the two big ones that are not moving?
In other words, is it the same kind of 140+ payroll that led to this regime change?
That's a solid rotation and a pen that should be significantly better then last years. It wouldn't be a world beater team but, I also think last years team underperformed quite a bit so I expect improvements regardless of moves but, those improvements alone would still not be enough to make us contenders so adding these should.
