Her job. She has a lot of contacts in baseball, across various different jobs (players, umpires, management).

I would try to buy a couple relievers and then flip them at the Deadline. I think the padres got quite a few prospects like that and will get more (when they trade Brad Hand). the relievers don't even have to be super cheap because the payroll is so low now just don't make it too high so that the guys are still tradeable.

Mark Appel, former first Overall pick has been DFAed by the phillies. he was absolutely terrible the last years but I think he still has a good arm. maybe the sox should pick him up for nothing and see if their pitching coaches can at least make a reliever out of him.

This is a good idea. When I think of Appel, Archie Bradley comes to mind. Maybe Appel, like Bradley, would thrive in the pen. Worth a shot IMHO.

Appell is more of a project though. Bradley had trouble finding the zone and avoiding walks be he mostly had good K rates.

Appell has high walk rates but also isn't missing bats. He would need to find another pitch to miss bats which at almost 26 isn't easy to do.

That is different from the wild stuff guy who just needs to find the zone. He is very much a long shot right now.

Still worth a try probably if you get him for free or almost free.

A young guy but I am pretty intrigued by the Braves' Sean Newcomb.

He has a good arm but really struggles with control. While he could still be a starter, I think he could be something dominant out of the pen.

I am hoping for Carlos Gonzalez. LF,DH,RF til Eloy is ready. Then flip him at the deadline if he has a bounce back season.

He'd make decent sense if we could move Garcia.

Yes I have thought of him and loved the thought of bringing him in on a one year deal

Jason Vargas from the Royals is my buy low veteran pitcher. He seems like a Miguel Gonzalez mirror image in terms of production when healthy but is a touch older and lefty
