    I think he is acknowledging that Beltre better than Schmidt, goes against the numbers, kind of like Carter better than Bautista.

    Schmidt is 100+ WAR, 2400 games, Beltre 80ish WAR 2700 games, according to the robots.
    If we don't win this year we'll win next year, if we don't win next year we'll win the year after that.

    With Lucroy going for a player to be named later, the contracts of EE and JB etc, I bet the MLBPA is shitting its pants right now. With the Morenos and Amaros of the world gone, no one is willing to pay anything for players on the wrong side of 30. Whether that's in contracts or prospect capital. At this pace Donaldson might not even get a $100M contract when his time comes.

    I don't know how good an example Lucroy is of a shift in philosophy across FOs. He returned a PTBNL because he's absolutely terrible.

    Darvish will be a better indicator for the worth attached to 30 year olds both in the trade return for his rental, and the contract he gets in the offseason.

    Dexter Fowler is the same age as Lucroy and got over $80mm last winter. I mean, when you have a wrc+ of 66, you can't expect a huge trade market.

    TBH there's not much left to pillage beyond Devers, who ain't going anywhere. You gotta figure one of Groome or Chavis is going the opposite direction, probably Chavis.

    It's Jamie Callahan, Gerson Bautista, and Stephen Nogosek to the Mets in the agreement for Addison Reed.

    Bautista - RHP Big arm, no control in A+
    Callahan - RHP Big Arm struggled with control will be a reliever probably going to get called up this year or next.
    Nogosek - RHP Is probably the best piece and has a good 3 pitch mix to be a starter but I think the sox have him as a reliever


    It's a great trade for the Mets.

    what a difference a year makes with the deadline market. Very underwhelming returns
