    Heartbroken about the Richie Martin news, but at least I can't blame AA for not picking him bc of Lord Mercer. Reed Rules.

    This is all building up to an epic rule v draft. Tho Jordy signing can only mean AA does not believe Martin will last until pick five. Not the worst Martin-back up.

    I was just about to type... If the deal is for 2 mil or less, fine, I guess. This seems like a lot for a junk piece

    I know it's still relatively early in the offseason, but when you have the chance to lock down a .1 bWAR SS, you gotta take that leap. Long live, Jordy.

    Yeah, I like Goodrum as more of a super util guy. I don't like signing the ancient ones bc they seem far less likely to surprise/bounceback and turn themselves into valuable trade commodities.

    Dodgers will trade Bellinger for Kluber or Bauer... Then trade us a B- prospect for Castellanos, move him to 1b, where he will outperform Bellinger and finally give the Dodgers that World Series title they've been craving for so long.

    Avila Approval Right Now?

    Approval up at least five points, given the Tyson Ross triumph.

    Beck has a list of possible non-tender guys who the Tigers could target. My beloved Tim Beckham is mentioned. He still has two years of control. Also mentioned is Matt Shoemaker who is from MI and still lives there in offseason. He feels like a good, reasonable target. The new Fiers. He also said this about Rule 5 draft, about a certain young SS I love more than Beckham. https://www.mlb.com/tigers/news/tigers-inbox-2018-winter-meetings-predictions/c-301496628?tid=218325368

    2019 Draft Pick Watch

    Mayo at Pipeline has a mock draft up and he has the Tigers taking a PITCHER at 5, mostly due to the fact that they took college arms w its last two top picks. Graeme Stinson, the Duke lefty. Very bad Mayo. Very bad. https://www.mlb.com/news/2019-early-mlb-mock-draft/c-301452552?tid=151437456

    Tim Beckham is the answer.

    2019 Draft Pick Watch

    Draft a toolsy High School OF... so we can trade him next OF for a Cano/Diaz package = 2020 AL Central Champ.

    Don't see it. The Mets did take on some risk. RPs, even great ones like Diaz are volatile. So if he stumbles then sure. But that's more or less going rate for elite closer and if he stays elite, even if the Mets struggle to contend, they can flip him in a year or two for something similar to Kelenic and Dunn, who are both far from sure things. Cano should provide solid value for at least two years.

    I love the Schoop idea. Get 'r done, AA. As for Cano, the deal looks worse for the Mets if they are only getting 20, as opposed to 60 mil from the Ms to subsidize. But Mariners are also taking on 34 mil of (probably) dead money in Bruce and Swarzak, making Cano 66 mil player over next five years. That said, I almost see Cano for two junk players and salary relief and the Diaz for prospects as two separate deals. Mets paying, in salary, more than Cano would probably get as a FA, gambling on age, effects of PEDs. But the prospects they are sending for Diaz don't seem out of what with what we've seen for elite closers these past few years, esp ones with four years of control.

    Not sure how the Mets overpaid. If they take down Cano's salary that much, there's good value in just him. One very young/middle to back end top 100 prospect and another decent one feels like what they would have gotten for Diaz alone.
