    Successful Plan B; What’s Next?

    Years of tanking and bottom payroll and now you can’t afford one of the top 3 pitchers is absolutely pathetic.
  2. If you really want the guy, just pay him what he wants. Very simple. If you don't really want the guy, go ahead and try a low-ball offer to see if it works (1% chance).
  3. Pass on the steroid guy. You don't know how he'll perform on a different regimen.

    Cole Hamels to the Braves, 1 year $18 Million.

    It's interesting b/c it sets the floor on the market. The going rate for a barely adequate SP is $18/year.

    Cole Hamels to the Braves, 1 year $18 Million.

    That's a lot of dough for his performance last year.
  6. well, yeah because he's been hurt so much.
  7. they're the same age and Bumgarner has pitched 200 innings seven times. Wheeler never has.

    Abreu Signs 3/$50M Extension

    why are they weighing the cost toward the end when they will have LESS financial flexibility?

    WHITE SOX SIGN Grandal 4/$73, Palka DFAd

    Good signing. Nice player. Plenty more to do.

    Zack Wheeler Thread

    I'm just going on record being against this signing. He'll probably get something like 5/125 and pitch maybe 2.5 of those years.

    the hell with this. Wheeler would be like getting a yellow sweater for Christmas.

    A Realistic Offseason

    One or more of the starters will be hurt or terrible.

    I'm all for it. Send a note to KW and see what he says.

    You must be new around here.

    Edwin Encarnacion - DH

    Sounds good to me. Go cheap at DH/RF, and spend big $$ on at least 2 if not 3 starting pitchers.

    A Realistic Offseason

    we've been rolling out Dylan Covey and Ross Detwiler and you guys are complaining about Keuchel.
  18. I think my original point was that if you're going to sign someone shitty to play RF you might as well sign Avi because at least he won't cost much. Use the money to sign one of the top 3 starting pitcher FA's.
  19. Honestly I'd rather have Avi Garcia at significantly less $$ and years.

    Steve Stone not returning to the booth next season???

    I thought he was involved in that attempt to move the A's to Las Vegas?

    Rumor: Reinsdorf aims to build second place teams

    If that was the goal he’s failed miserably. In the weakest division in baseball no less.

    40 Man Rosterbation

    Basabe is the only guy I'd be interested in keeping of that bunch.

    Zack Collins

    He looks OK by the eye test the last few weeks. Doesn't normally swing at horrible pitches which is eye opening.

    9/26- Sox vs Indians, 7:10

    Nothing to worry about I’m sure he’s totally fine!
