We did a perfectly fine job replacing Murphy.

No one told us we had to replace Rogers Hornsby.

Yes and as you recall, most people were ready and willing to move on from that Murphy. I certainly don't want to make the same mistake (as with Murphy) of letting Flo go for basically nothing, which is the track they'd be on if they keep him until his control period runs out.

Yes and I'd replace Flores if the right upgrade came along. But it was never a priority to replace Murphy for a reason and the same should apply here.

Replacing Flores is not as urgent as adding a 3B, OF, C, SP, or a couple relievers. If it worked out that someone fell into your lap, then great. But you'll always have bigger holes than Flores.


I think reliever needs have gone way down the list now that they will probably need to sign an OF. Not saying I agree, but with the half dozen or so relief pitchers they brought in during the season, they'll probably go with what they have. Might look at a lefty. Might...

They currently have like $80 million on the books for next year. They have plenty of money to address both, especially considering how cheap relievers are.

You're preaching to the choir. Just not confident it happens.

I thought they had closer to $110M committed.

Well, I think the offseason should consist of acquiring:

- one OF (Cain/Martinez)
- one 2B or 3B (Kinsler/Frazier)
- one SP (Cobb/Lynn/Estrada)
- one RP (Oh/Gregerson)
- one swing type (Petit)

Conforto is likely looking at 6-12 months in rehab if he has surgery, according to an independent orthopedist I spoke to today.

Unreal.

Jesus 6-12 is a BIT of a mysterious timetable. 6 would be fine, 12 would be a disaster.

It's definitely closer to 110 and I think a bit over that with the arb deals. That number including Wright and the Cabrera buyout.
