    How likely would it be that Kikuchi would get $20M over 2 years (the reminder of his contract) in this crazy market? Still relatively young, throws hard, good raw stuff. If Kyle Gibson at age 35 coming off a 5.05 ERA season is getting 1 year $10M, it's not crazy to think Kikuchi can double that AAV.

    Berrios $18.7M AAV looking like a bargain. Gausman might've gotten $30M/yr in this market. Overall, our SP contracts seem to have aged pretty well.

    Don't give a fuck Jim. Benny will be getting like 4+ years coming off 1 good year after several shitty ones, while Conforto likely wants a 1 year pillow deal.

    Yeah Conforto should be a prime target if hes looking for 1 year. Or even something similar to what Haniger got. Comfortable with Conforto for 3/50

    I wouldn’t touch Conforto for 3 years. I don’t think teams will considering the injury. 1 year sign me up for anything reasonable. Think that’s what it’ll be

    Crazy to think Gausman and Berrios signings are now in retrospect, simply a steal.

    From everything that I've read, this sounds pretty accurate... I don't think we're doing much. Go big or go home. So we go home.

    Gausman's deal is an absolute steal. I don't think we can say the same for Berrios though. He has 6 years, 112.2 million left on his deal (18.7 AAV). If he were a FA I don't think I'd like that deal very much.

    Yimi Garcia's deal is looking like a heist right now. Even Kikuchi's deal, even after the year he had, isn't looking like quite the shitstain that it did prior to this offseason. If he could turn it around and be serviceable as a #5, or turn into an above average reliever, it won't be that bad.

    Looking like best case scenario for the rotation may just be bringing back Stripling.

    BNS on the FAN today said he wouldnt hold his breath for Nimmo.

    Rather than trading a C for an OFer, I think they need to trade one for a SP. I think Espinal should be dangled in a package as well.

    Easy to say in retrospect but they should have offered him the QO. 19.6M for 1 year when Taillon and Walker are getting for year deals for similar AAV is a steal. I don't think anyone predicated that the market would explode like this though. Angels so damn lucky to get Tyler Anderson for 3 years, 39 million.

    Considering the rumours around who the Jays were trying to sign, I'd prefer White and Kikuchi actually. WTF are the Jays thinking with Gibson? They don't need to spend money on depth. Gibson is the type of guy you sign in February when literally everyone else is off the board.

    Yep. We jumped the gun on Roark. No need to repeat that history.
