I'm going to be fascinated to see where Hand goes on waivers, but way more fascinated if no team picks up the $10 mill as that is going to be a pretty big insight into what kind of winter we're looking at

 

Deep down, that's exactly what I'm expecting. 

If they thought someone was going to jump at that contract, they would have traded him.

Britton's contract of $14mill was picked up by the Yanks so you gotta think, at the very least, a big market team will claim him.

Not many are in position to, though. I guess boston is the one I'm most confused about.

There you go, he's cleared the whole league.

Charlie Morton anyone? Option was decline by Tampa.

Count me in.  Quality starter for 15M.

Does Springer go to Detroit? I'm thinking yes

I'm thinking he goes wherever the money is greatest.

do not want him, going to be 37 very soon and injury prone

It's a one year gamble and gives us time for some of our young guys to develop.  Worse that happens is he pitches like a #5.  Best is he could contend for our #2.  He very likely is appreciatively better than whatever Q will give us.

Dallas starting the recruiting effort I see.

He’s waving bye to him because he knows that no one will pay him what he’s worth and he’ll retire lol

This year I think that’s 100% true. If Brad Hand is a top 5 reliever in the AL and no one will pay him $10 million, then Morton isn’t going to get the kind of money that will make him come back...especially if the league has no idea what it will look like in April yet. 

Of course if he really liked both Hinch and Keuchel he might have helped them out for a year, but....

Sports Illustrated listed the top 50 free agents and has us as “best fits” for Brad Hand and Ozuna.

If that was our free agent pool and we traded for two starting pitchers, I could be happy.

It won’t go down that way though, more likely than not.

I don’t think the Sox are interested in Hand. They could have claimed him at a decent price today with no competition. I would love Ozuna but Nightengale mentioned Brantley and Morton. I think he has proven he has his hand on the pulse of the White Sox.

Sox want a lefty hitting outfielder and also want more contact hitting on the team. If their scouts believe he can play RF, I would be shocked if the Sox don’t sign him.

Hopefully Morton wouldn’t take the Sox out of the Bauer/Stroman sweepstakes

What about Brantley at DH? I think he’s a fit either way. You can do a Eloy, Brantley, Vaughn, Abreu cycle of LF, DH and 1B. Or you can trade Vaughn for a SP.

I like Brantley but I don't think he can hold up in RF personally. He's LF/DH only for me and they don't really need that after Vaughn is ready

Can I ask you a question.? Why in the fuck are we going to trade Vaugh? His name keeps coming up on this site for a trade and I don’t get it. He is NOT getting traded.

Sure you can ask me a question. Why not? He should not be untouchable in the right trade. I’m glad you know the future, let me borrow your crystal ball.

Fangraphs has posted their contract predictions for the top 50 free agents!  If Jerry is willing to spend some money to please his buddy Tony, damn could we clean up this offseason.  Some of these prices are well below expectations.
