    All are FAs.

    If we did let all those guys walk and Hoyer had 50-60m to work with, then he better attempt to overhaul the offense, bring in more contact. Enough with the lateral moves.

    Outside of the shortstops, are any stars/game changers going to be out there?

    Hoyer should have $100-150m to work with this offseason. Should.

    Looks like limited capacity through at least June 2nd. Theyíre not spending next year either.

    Thankfully they won in 2016, this would be unbearable if we lost that game 7 then dropped to this level. We were all thinking a top contender for a decade with more championships. Now its blow up and rebuild with an owner crying poor. Its sad

    They won 90+ games four times. Finished first* last year. It was a really good run. Its also been a pretty poorly run team for a few years now. Iím feeling a post-run Phillies vibe from 7-8 years ago. Itís gonna be rough for a while.

    I think if they didn't win, they would of made the necessary changes over holding onto guys like they did..
    Theo wasn't going to not do whatever possible to win 1

    I predict it will be lower than this year's payroll. Significantly lower.

    I predict a year or 2 of tanking and no multi-season signings like this past offseason.

    Overall I give Theo's run a 9.5/10. Could have done a bit better toward the end but i'm happy. On to the next cycle...

    I'm not down on this season yet. It's April 14, there's tons of baseball left in a crappy division.

    None should be signed to long term extensions. The biggest case with Rizzo seems to be that because he is on one of the biggest team friendly contracts going around, giving him a multi year contract right now would be to reward him. But this is a business. In the case of KB and Baez, they arenít worth the multi-year risk, which is crazy in KBís case as he was once a $200M player. He bet on himself and lost massively on his next contract. Thank them for the World Series but bid them all fairwell. This teams rebuild can go a lot smoother without ageing players.

    Rodon with the No-no. Good for him.

    I'ma fan of 2 teams, the Cubs and the Yankees. Both teams have identical 5-7 records. In a way Cubs are lucky to have the record the do. The Yankees have outscored their opponents 48-46, but have that 5-7 record while the Cubs have been outscored 52-28. Yes, just 28 runs in 12 games, 2.33 runs per game. If it weren't for Kimbrel, we would be out of the race already.

    Is a relief no-hitter a thing? Kimbrel has a no-hitter through 6 IP of work so far this year. We can at least root for that lol.
