    Leon is the one that hurts to loose but i am with BTS that i don't have much value on Greene(I could be wrong and knowing i agree with BTS i likely am) but I think he could be 2.5WAR player for us.

    Great bat to roll the dice on. Grichuk has serious power, is still young and could play all three outfield positions. Still some unrealized potential. Wouldn't shock me if he hits 30 + home runs playing half of his games at the Rogers Centre. If he could somehow fix his K/BB rate, tinkers a bit with his swing, he could take that next step possibly. Even if he doesn't, he's likely still a 2 WAR player who provides pop from an OF corner.

    He's only one year older than Aaron Judge.

    He’s an upgrade over Joey Bats.

    Think Grichuk is over 3 WAR per 600/PA for his career.

    Greene profiles as a reliever and Leone is a non elite reliever who has as many negative WAR seasons as positive ones.

    Grichuk isn’t exactly an exciting acquisition but it hasn’t harmed the mid to long term team at all.
    Agreed. I feel like the value of non elite relievers is being overstated. Noname ducks come out of the woodwork every year to become good relievers like Leone did last year.

    And they usually become shit the year after.

    I could see a trade happening. Pearce, Morales or even Pillar could be shopped at this point.

    That's a pathetically low threshold.

    I think Pearce is most likely to be traded unless the Giants are willing to offer something good for Pillar (they’re looking for a defensive CF).

    Will be interesting to see what the Cards development system does with Greene. Will he become a true Card?

    We've talked about Grichuk before - but didn't he have a lingering thumb injury or something last year that hampered his offense? As he proved in 2016, he only needs to post a wRC+ of 100-110 to be a valuable starting OFer. At age 26, we can certainly hope the best is yet to come.

    At the very least we have enviable depth all over the diamond. Quality backups at most positions that should be passable or more (Solarte, Diaz, Pearce), and prospects who will be in the high minors that have serious upside (Alford, Teoscar, Jansen).

    Royals losing Hosmer might be our only hope for any team to take Morales for less than eating 50% of his salary and still think everyone would pass.

    Pillar bobblehead day is set no reason to trade him lol. Although his body i think would not age as well as other seeing as he has been beat up on turf the last few years so it might be time to sell off

    The team really needs to add a starter now. And a legit reliever. The bullpen is really gross after Osuna.

    Yeah we are seeing a resurgence in the way Front Offices value relievers. Stat-friendly FO's value relievers more than ever it seems. So that's why a Healy for Pagan deal happens today when it wouldn't have 5 years ago. But Grichuk isn't Healy, he's a guy who can play all 3 OF spots effectively and has a strong batted ball profile that suggests there is some upside.
