    But who knows. If those three are even a conversation starter I'd do it. Heck I'd add Osuna if they want pitching so badly. They can flip Osuna and get even more

    Osuna Alford And Greene. Wartmoth can't be traded as he was drafted less than a year ago

    Rumour wasn't true. They asked for bo

    I think I could stomach 4 years $56M; however, that would probably leave us with a glaring need in the OF.

    How good would Lynn at $14M and Yelich at $7M in 2018 look? (Yelich for Bo + Urena, or Alford, Warmoth + C.Greene).


    Yelich - RF
    Donaldson - 3rd
    Smoak - 1st
    Morales - DH
    Martin - C
    Tulo - SS
    Travis - 2nd
    Pillar - CF
    Teoscar - LF

    B - Diaz, Solarte, Pearce, Catcher

    Stro, Sanchez, Happ, Estrada, Lynn (Borucki, Biagini, Deck, etc.)



    Edit - Holy fuck, out lineup still looks awful even if we add an impact bat to fill out the OF...

    Let's sign R.A. Dickey ($7 mil), Eduardo Nunez ($11 mil) a backup C ($?) and the rest on the bullpen ($3-5 mil or so). Then extend Donaldson. Call it a wrap.

    I was on the Nunez train, but I can't see the need with Solarte and Diaz in the fold. Spend that cash on OF or SP

    Sign Ethier (who can platoon in LF) and either Anderson or Liriano, then use whatever's left for addressing RF by FA or trade (maybe ugh Cargo or Grandy). Not the sexiest team, but probably a capable one if it can stay somewhat healthy.

    It's kind of depressing trying to come up with a plan to assemble a team that beats one of NYY/BOS/CLE/HOU then one of NYY/BOS/CLE/HOU, then one of LAD/CHI/WAS in 3 straight series.

    I know he would be a value signing, but let's leave that portion of the franchise's history in the past. As a fan I would rather give Borucki an honest shot and if he gets shelled at the MLB level he gets shelled.

    I can't stand watching Dickey pitch but I would gladly not watch 190IP of 4.26 ERA from our #5 SP for 7M.

    I think Dickey might be the only guy in baseball who will make this board knowingly reject a good value signing when they see it. He's too good of a bargain to pass up. I'd watch an entire rotation fo RA Dickey's if it meant we won. Plus you could likely get him on a one year deal. Perfect situation for us where we are just wanting to tread water for 2 years without making any long term commitments.
