I'm not sure why we don't just re-sign Michael Saunders on a reasonable 1-2 year deal. His market has been totally silent and I'm sure he'd love to stay. I'd offer him Pearce money or maybe slightly more.
I guess he's seen by teams as not much better than JB or Trumbo in the field who both could potentially sign on the cheap and/or a one year deal.
JB, Trumbo and Saunders are all ideally DH's, who could prob play 1B OK, and have experience in OF but suck there.
Smoak for Bruce would work for me. At least Bruce only has a year left and might be able to pull a Trumbo before he hits free agency. But acquiring Bruce with Smoak getting regular time at first? Nah.
great article on player thoughts on defensive metrics with quotes from players and coaches across baseball including Pillar and Gibbers
Fuck Taylor Swift
Manny Ramirez is considering a comeback overseas somewhere. I wonder if he will be any good at 44.
I donít suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.
I wouldn't mind a Bruce-for-Smoak deal and then signing Bautista/Encarnacion.
I realize I put Pearce twice. Put one of the bracket players in the lineup the other on a different team. I realize a Bruce-Pillar-JB outfield would be horrendous, maybe Pearce with JB at 1st?

Ben Revere close to signing with a new team. One weak groundout by land, two weak groundouts by sea was the message he conveyed.
