I know there's a lot of movement in this scenario which makes it borderline unrealistic, but I don't see any move that doesn't seem unreasonable. The farm obviously takes a huge hit, but with 4 picks in the top 40 in this years deep draft the replenish could start pretty quickly. Not a huge fan of Garza's but he's had success in the al east and is not attached to a draft pick. I also see JBJ still getting 350-400 abs due to injury history of the starting OF's

Kemp OR Stanton I can understand. Kemp AND Stanton? I don't see it when Stanton will get a huge pay day in three years. More likely they've got to extend him when the deal is done so that pay day comes now. There's room in your sim for his raise but I can't see giving him the money AND getting Lester extended while also paying Kemp.

I'm also scared to death that you've drained the farm system of it's best assets for what are currently set up as short-term wins. The team listed will compete but I'm afraid that the massive turnover will disrupt the chemistry.

Good feedback. I know that Kemp and Stanton is a stretch, but I tried to be creative and it appears to me the trades work out for both teams. Paying Kemp 16.5 salary would be practically replacing Ortiz's in 2-3 years. Reference draining the farm, I'm not as high on Cecchini as most due to the fact I see his ceiling as .800 ops while providing average defense. Also I'm higher on Webster and Barnes than both Owens and Ranaudo. If these trades went down you would still see a top 10 farm system with 4 picks in the top 40 in this years draft

1. Bauer
2. Barnes
3. Swihart
4. Skaggs
5. Webster
6. Ball
7. Workman
8. Britton
9. Vasquez
10. Margot

PS there is a typo in the sim. It should be A Cabera not Peralta.
