    I couldn't stand watching Dickey pitch and would rather find someone else to fill the last rotation spot, but if he comes cheap and doesn't require a below replacement man servant as his back up catcher, then the Jays can do a lot worse.

    Ethier had 64 PA's in the majors over the past 2 years. I don't know man...

    Grandy might be a solid vet option though. We need a lefty and he's averaged 2.3 WAR per year over the past 2 seasons. Still runs well and plays decent defense. He also walks a lot, which is a nice change up from our free swingers. I'd have to imagine we could get him on a 1 year deal (maybe with a 2nd year option).

    Lynn at $13M per + Grandy for $8M.

    Good call on Granderson. As long as he'd come here instead of playing a lesser role on a contender. I assume it would be a 1 year deal, dude is almost 37 now. Still projects as a 2ish WAR player with full playing time. Could hit some real bombs here after years of 25-30 with the Mets (in that park).

    I can't see Grandy wanting to finish his career playing on turf.

    That's a fair point. It's a real nuisance that our park could factor into our abilities to sign FA's.

    Maybe Grandy is all about the dollar bills yo. I kind of doubt it though. I think I've read he's a great teammate overall. He's probably looking for a ring. Maybe it has to be a guy like Cargo who's simply looking to rebuild value. Meh.

    Dave Cameron leaving Fangraphs to work for the Padres. Interesting to say the least.

    Guessing it will be Tucker as the center piece. Astros did well if they can get away without moving him or Whitley

    No pressure on Cole to be an ace in Houston

    Good role models there

    It's a good fit
