    They could potentially fit Brantley in without having to trade anyone of significance.

    C Janssen
    1B Tellez
    2B Biggio
    SS Bichette
    3B Guerrero
    LF Gurriel
    CF Springer
    RF Hernandez
    DH Brantley

    I would definitely not trade Pearson..

    I wouldn't see the need in trading Pearson and I agree.

    Regarding your lineup though, how confident are you with the defense you are putting on the field there? I personally don't have confidence in Vladdy at 3rd.

    I also don't expect Grichuk to be a 10 million dollar a year bench player.

    I expect a trade to happen.

    I'm reluctant to trade him as well but if you can package him to get a better player, you do it imo

    What if it meant getting Luis Castillo?

    Yeah I want no part of Vladdy at third base, either and expect a trade to happen mainly because I think they sign Brantley. I'd prefer to trade Teo over Gurriel but as for Grichuk, I think they'll carry him but I think he's gotta prove himself to get a job and that's a good thing.

    As for trading Pearson, I'd do him and Teo in a deal for Castillo and Gray. Then go sign Bauer.

    Bauer
    Castillo
    Ryu
    Gray
    Ray

    Sounds easy

    No thanks. As much as I like Brantley he's a redundant/lateral move unless we move Tellez and LGJ/Teo.

    Brantley can no longer play the OF consistently and would get injured if he was forced to. Adding Brantley would be at the cost of LGJ/Teo and Tellez, who should have brighter/longer futures and are much cheaper.

    They should concentrate on adding to the SP/RP and INF where we still have some holes. They can go in a numerous ways like Wong/Profar for 2B or 3B, as Vladdy should be 1B or DH when Teo isn't there.

    LF LGJ
    CF Springer
    RF Teo/Grich
    3B ???
    SS BO
    2B Biggio
    1B Vladdy/Tellez
    C Jansen/Reese/Kirk
    DH Teo/Tellez/Grich/Vladdy

    Pearson is #6 of the top 100 MLB prospects for 2021. Snell only got #23 Patino. The way the valuation of prospects are this offseason that would be a huge over pay.

    Not in my books. Pearson being ranked as high as he is should be considered a gift right now as a 2 pitch pitcher.

I just think it will leave us more flexibility in the future.
    Well it does require time and money management. Usually when teams underspend on Y1, its so they can sign another FA after, which is fine depending on the situation but I think it wouldve worked in our favour this time.

    Just say Quintana signed. I wouldve taken that gamble over Ray.

    I think I'd be down on that assuming Castillo has control and Moose isnt too long of a contract.

    Castillo is under control through 2023 I believe.
