    This year isn't the time to trade Pillar, but I'd get his name out there at the deadline if we aren't in it, or the following OS. His value is so tied to putting up huge defensive seasons that I can see a sharp decline when it happens and he'll be going into his age 30 season after next year.

    But man what an unappreciated gift this guy has been. 9.5 WAR for league min and another projected <3.0 WAR this year for ~4M.

    JBJ's value will be an interesting test case for value. Another defensive wiz, but with much more offensive upside (and less on the defensive side).

    All defense guys have been underpaid for years if you look at salary vs WAR, largely because arbitration awards do not factor in defense at all when determining what number is chosen so there's never a precedent for these guys to get what they're actually worth.
