    Did Taillon already opt out of the WBC?

    Dahl is sexxxy, but let's leave him in Coors so he can be a fantasy monster.

    Would Stroman for Dahl straight up work? I'm not sure who would have to kick in more as Stroman has ML experience but he's heading into arbitration where as Dahl will be dirt cheap for a while

    What do you guys think of Steamer projecting Dahl to be a replacement level player next season?

    Isn't that because he has no prior MLB experience so steamer just assumes the worst? I feel like all rookies are treated this way except super prospects like Bryant although for all I know his first year projections could have been close to replacement level.

    is steamer even reliable when it comes to players with little track record in the majors? There's probably so much noise in his 2016 numbers

    True, but there's guys available like Moss who could be signed at a likely discount for the outfield (not to mention Bautista still) and produce adequately. Outside of Tyson Ross (who's a bit of an injury risk himself), the other remaining starting pitchers are either puke inducing or made of expensive glass.

    You could probably get Jason Hammel for like 1 year $8M right now. He's projected to provide 1.3 WAR more than Moss is...

    I forgot about Hammel, he could be passable too. As for Moss, I think the projections are for him playing 1B where the defensive metrics don't like him. In the outfield he's average to maybe slightly above average. Changing that, and the projected WAR is probably about the same as Hammel.

    I can't answer that, I just saw the note about Freeman likely playing for Canada in the Rotoworld feed.

    Apparently the Mariners were willing to give Seth Smith away to anyone who wanted to pay him, before settling on Gallardo when nobody would take Smith on. I have a hard time believing that Toronto has 30M in payroll space if they couldn't find 7M for Smith.

    Yeah this whole offseason just screams payroll constraints to me.

    To be fair, apparently no one else wanted to pay Smith 7M either. There's probably something in the underlying medicals, etc that we don't know about.

    True but other teams don't have 0 WAR projected for their corner outfield either.

    There's 3 or 4 teams with less projected from both their corner outfielders than us, and more with poor projections in one of the two spots. There's plenty of need, and no one bit. There's more to it, has to be.
