    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    This move only makes sense if they still land with a ~$120m payroll. That would just mean more $ is now available to fill the other holes. I'm hoping Price, JDM and $

    Angels sign Rendon - 7yrs 245

    This is what I'm thinking. Shorter commitment than Machado. You could move Moncada to RF or back to 2B and use Madrigal in a trade.

    On to Plan B

    I'd take Keuchel. Reminds me of Buehrle. Takes it and throws it, gets tons of grounders
  8. Spotrac has him at 4/$93m or ~$23m/yr https://www.spotrac.com/mlb/new-york-mets/zack-wheeler-11933/market-value/

    Cano to Mets deal official

    I disagree. The $20m cash knocks Canos cost down to $100m or $20m/yr. He has to be worth about 2-2.5 war per year to meet that cost or about 11 over 5. He was worth 2.9 war in half a season last year, so I still think he's a 4-5 war player next year. Swarzak and Bruce will cost the same in 2019 but might be worth 1-2 war. Diaz was a 3.5 war player last year. So say Swarzak and Bruce are worth 2 war combined in 2019 and Cano+Diaz is 7 war. They cost the same, so the Mets added 5 war for $0. Kelenic and Dunn are a coin toss. Sure they could pan out,but why wait when you have 2 of the best pitchers in baseball. There are two player in free agency that can give you 5 more WAR next year and they will cost you $350m.

    Assuming we get neither Harper or Machado. Sign Happ 3/$42m, White Sox get: Haniger, Seager no $ Mariners get: Rutherford, Dunning, Rivera White Sox get: Greinke, Peralta, no $ Diamondbacks get: Basabe and Stephens Do both of those and your payroll goes up about $55m but you add anywhere from 12 to 18 WAR. Then you also have a corner OF/DH logjam with Hanniger, Peralta, Jimenez, Palka RF Haniger LF Peralta 1B Abreu DH Jimenez 3B Seager CA Castillo 2B Moncada SS Anderson CF Engel SP Greinke SP Rodon SP Lopez SP Happ SP Giolito CL Colome RP Jones RP Fry RP Burr RP Hamilton RP Bummer RP Ruiz

    I wonder if we could get a window of negotiation if we traded for Goldschmidt. Take him and Greinke's from the dbacks. I'd only do this if we lost out on Machado and Harper.
