    Zack Wheeler Thread

    I was intrigued but not after digging. His average fastball velocity has been dropping each year. Formerly around 93 now 89.9! That doesn't work for many people. His walk rate is rising so it appears he is nibbling with lesser stuff. Unless something is seen mechanically where you think you get velocity back, I would avoid.

    Sox issue qualifying offer to Abreu

    I recall reading somewhere Boras had a multiyear offer he thought Keuchel should take. Keuchel refused it as it wasn't enough money and it seems he burned himself.

    Sox issue qualifying offer to Abreu

    The worst that happens is he takes the QO, has a monster year and because he no longer has a QO attached and was pissed , he leaves. I'll take a monster year.

    I am worried this year was start of decline. I actually would like to see if his trend continues

    A Realistic Offseason

    I realize it is a old school stat but do you expect a guy who leads the league in RBI to take a pay cut? I would very much take the 2/28 as the team but I predict we will be unhappy numerically. Afraid of 2/38-40 with an option

    Zack Wheeler Thread

    It is interesting that on Wheeler you are paying premium dollars on future projection. Usually in free agency guys are getting money for past performance. He will be a test case for the analytic evolution applied to free agency.

    He very well could be hoping Red Sox sweeten the deal by perhaps dropping injury penalties if nothing else or adding a year or maybe money

    Interesting his #1 is also Grandal.

    Cali, along the same lines, do you expect Milwaukee to lose both Grandal and Moustakas? Obviously, Grandal is my number one target back on page one but you make a compelling argument for Moose. I think it may be hard to sell him on a multi positional role when some teams can offer full time work at one position. If Texas doesn't get Rendon, I could see him there.

    Thanks for finding all the info on Dickerson. Definitely interesting. Three different injuries last year with the season ending one being his foot. Obviously that would really have to be checked out. The Red Sox put all kind of contract parameters around JDM previous injury. Dickerson will be a really interesting contract. He could take a one year gamble contract but everybody looking for a non qualifying offer corner outfielder will be looking at him. I could see him getting a solid multi year deal just as easily. If his foot checks out you have definitely made me want to kick the tires. At 31 next year and injury history, I bet he takes the multi year deal.
  13. Completely agree. You could have signed a team of 100k guys for what we gave up in the Jones and Castillo deals. I can understand if they feel spreading the money around on multiple players vs one high dollar player is their philosophy but a philosophy of none is not good. This is compounded if you sign free agents who require giving up draft picks. Maybe one 1.25 million dollar bonus guy would help offset losing a second or third round draft pick but having neither will show up in a farm system in a couple years.

    40 Man Rosterbation

    I could see Fulmer in a change of scenery trade ala Thornton years ago. A worse team may be willing to give him more time. I am trying to think if getting him thru waivers would be easier now than at end of spring. He has talent and pedigree so I expect someone would take a chance so maybe he has some value.

    If you get Grandal, Gardner could hit 6-8 in my eyes but what the heck in the playoffs for the Yankees he hit three so I don't think he lack value.
