    I'm guessing it's someone like Jeff Francouer, Luke Hochevar or Bruce Chen and not say Will Meyers,Mike Moustakas or Alex Gordon

    It was/is Jeff Francoeur... I deliberately made his name hard to read... ducking and running as the messenger may get killed in here with the meetings going as they have...

Yankees got a strong year out of Chavez. Cubs used this logic on Edmonds in '08...Rays do it all the time signing guys like Cliff Floyd, Matsui, Damon, and any other former star veteran who would want to give them a shot...Yankees and A's did it with Colon...Brandon McCarthy wasn't a top ML star, but he was a stud in the minors with video game numbers as a starter and finally hit.

    Your natural color is unimpressed anyway. You're the McKayla Maroney.of PSD with a bit of Oscar the Grouch in there. The Nationals probably care more about what they can mine out of the still not old former higher end starter than they do about paying him 8 figures for one year. While it's cute and kind of you to care about their wallet for them, it's probably not going to hurt them.
    Does it ever hit you that maybe you are wrong when everyone around baseball disagrees with your take on things?

    I think Lake has pretty significant trade value because his tools remain intriguing and teams will want to believe they can get him to harness them. He could easily be the secondary piece that pushes a blockbuster package over the top.

    Anyways, I could be wrong...

    But damn do you have any concrete idea about Sori returns? Are we getting bent over a barrel still?
