Where do we figure opening day payroll comes in 150 Mil max? What was it in 2016?
I would love to extend Donaldson and sign EE. Reddick would be a good pickup. I would rather see Pompey play full time than have Upton out there.
Think we'll get a new hitting coach? Maybe I'm delusional, but I really think Pillar could be decent if he had a different plate approach.
I have my doubts I don't think it will be 170
I think pretty much you can't have EE and Bautista anymore anyways even at 180 there is so much to do
I'm sure this has its own thread but I cant see resigning Dickie. If he doesnt retire I will be surprised. The big argument in the past for keeping him is that he eats a lot of innings. Well this year with 169 innings, he ranks last on the team. And now we have Liriano.
I really hope the Budget is well in excess of 140 mil. Less than that and things will have to get really creative.
Wtf why the early release. I missed it
Would it be a screwed move to stretch Biagini and trade Estrada or Happ for a young outfielder
Here's my offseason shitpost. Feel free to destroy it.
Sign Gomez (LF), Fowler (RF), Pearce (1B) and Alvarez (DH). Offense shouldn't drop off much but the fielding would be very, very good. I have no idea who to get for backup C but we need one. Fill out the bullpen on the cheap and reinforce at the deadline if needed. Get picks for EE and Bautista.
Sign Dexter Fowler for RF, Steve Pearce for 1B.
QO Edwin and Bats and take the picks. Let Saunders walk. Use a Zeke/Melvin as a cheap Platoon for LF.
Anyone like Beltran? I like that his term is likely to be bery short. Flipside of that is that he's 200 years old.
"We don't have to plan for a rebuild. But all 30 teams have to stay agile, and have to understand that we're dealing with human beings, and these assets to organizations are human and change and evolve. I think what we've tried to do is become more flexible and agile, and to sustain championships is to build from within."
