    SP Targets

    FA - I'd go Cueto. We just need 5 good innings. Pirates aren't going to trade Quintana. They just signed him this offseason. Anyone hear anything about Lambert or Stiever?
  2. If we all agree we need another starter, You can’t argue against plan A if you don’t have a plan B. Trades hurt, but you have to push your chips up at some point.

    Offseason Part 3 - Because Part 2 Was a Dud

    I saw your tweet yesterday and all I could think of is there was no way I thought Hosmer would get $144m. Boras always proves me wrong.

    I'm thinking Miami or Detroit.

    I'd do this.
  7. Dollars are actually close when to take income taxes into account.
  8. I'm thinking our RF, Kimbrel and SP moves are all contingent on Conforto. Option 1: Sign Conforto, trade for Manaea, trade Kimbrel for prospects or backup catcher. Maybe even a three way that sends prospects to Oakland. Option 2: Trade Kimbrel to TB for one of Meadows or Kiermaier. I'd love Conforto, but the projections don't see that much of a different between Conforto, Meadows or Kiermaier. Trade for Manaea. Fans are waiting on a Manaea or Kimbrel trade when Hahn is waiting for Conforto to decide first.

    The MLB lockout is lifted!

    Think it's good news or bad news that we've heard absolutely nothing on the negotiations?

    MLB 2021-2 off season thread

    So they can't negotiate trades? Seems odd.

    Funny how everyone has said that GMs could still negotiate trades during the lockout but the rumors went dark. Are they under the radar? Are agents primary sources of rumors?

    The Second Base Options (as it stands)

    Yeah I was lazy when I picked him. I just saw he played 3B, SS and 2B and had some pop.

    The Second Base Options (as it stands)

    Best FA Option: Villar Best trade option: McNeil

    Where could Kimbrel be traded, and for what?

    It's about actual cost versus market cost. So Kimbrel costs $16m and is worth $16m in the market (based on what Inglesias signed for), so he's break even. Segura costs $12m but is worth say $8m in the market based on what Hernandez signed for, so there is a $4m deficit that the Phillies have to make up in the form of cash and or prospects.
