But if you don't have a starting catcher... 

Is Eric Haase pretty much being kicked to the curb at this point? I mean, I'm not completely sold on him, but also feel they don't need to fix that problem by dropping $8 million on Tucker Barnhart.

Especially if it blocks upgrades to the bullpen. Which, outside of four or five guys, is below replacement level at the moment.

Haase is a decent backup.

Ideally, that's what he'd be doing next year, but this is a curveball. 

At the end of the day, it's Chris I's money... just hope that, in spite of Rogers being out next year, it doesn't throw a big wrench into the consensus about upgrades to this roster... particularly pitching

LOL at the Padres. $175Million to finish close to 20 games back.

$43.5M for Hosmer (GB machine) and Myers (below average BA and power) - both with below average career SLG.

$14.7M for injured pitchers (Clevinger, Pomeranz, etc)...always a risk.

The other above average contracts (Darvish $19m, Snell $11M, Machado $30M) are doing well enough.

Their problem isnt really spending.  Their problem is that they went big on two guys who werent proficient power hitters, and in Myers case, isnt proficient at all....and they dont have the depth to withstand a couple of pitching injuries.
