    Bryant isnít taking less money because of the manager. If they pay his price heíll extend. If they donít, he wonít. It has nothing to do with the manager.

    They will absolutely consider trading...

    I share that concern about trading Bryant.

    If they canít extend both and decide they need to trade one now to acquire impactful pitching, should they trade KB or Baez? Letís say Bryant would...

    No. That was the Jim Hendry front office. Ryno didnít manage in the minors under Theo and thereís no way Theo was going to hire Sandberg as the manager. He viewed the game very differently.

    Wheeler and Castellanos probably total $110 million+ in FA, so thatís more than tinkering imo. It makes you better short term, but adds more big long term money and I think this foster + those 2 is...

    Yeah. Last year they were outliers, especially because the first half was pretty decent and the 2nd half offense was horrible.

    This year they werenít outliers.

    They can tinker and still be ok to above average next year. But they probably wonít be great and itís a year closer to free agency for the core.
