I gotcha and makes sense.  Just feels like now would have been a good time to splurge on a starter since Keuchel will come off the books next year and we really have nobody waiting in the wings.  Bassitt would be a fine addition, but a little nervous to speculate on what he might cost even as a one year rental.

I hear ya, and I don't disagree.  Two questions regarding a potential Bassitt trade:

1. A Bassitt trade would be similar to the Lynn trade last year in terms of cost, right?  

2. If we make a trade like that, who are the best free agent starting pitchers next offseason (assuming we don't extend Bassitt like we did Lynn)? I suppose Google can quickly tell me the answer to that, so I'll get on that as soon as I hit "Reply".

Probably should cost similar.  Unfortunately, we don’t have any top 100 prospects, but maybe they would take Burger as a centerpiece.  We’ll have to wait and find out I guess.

Castillo is going to cost Vaughn+.

Doesn't Castillo only have two years of control? I'd rather just grab Bassitt for a year if Castillo would cost Vaughn+.

This was a good deal. I’m happy for the Mariners. Those fans have been through some poop.

They would probably want Sheets and Burger…as they’re still likely to trade Olson.  

Chapman needs to build his value back first half.

This stings, not a ridiculous contract that any contending team could have offered.
