got a kick out of you projecting the Mets and Yankees to sign 13 of the 50. :D

I don't think we engage in any trades because we'll offer them garbage and they'll want Noah/Montero and we'll gasp with shock.

Therefore, I fill our roster with mostly low cost FA's, plus Choo (dating back to my original predictions for our offseason, I had Pence and mostly low cost guys, before Pence re-upped).

Something like 5/80 for Choo, 2/20 for Feldman, 1/5 with incentives for Hughes, 2/10 for Uribe, 2/7 for Smith and 1/3.5 for Young?

OD Lineup: EYJr/Young, Murphy, Wright, Choo, Uribe, Duda, TdA, Lagares, Niese

Something like that.


RE: The Yankees, there's a lot of stuff at play there. I think Cano is the obvious one, Grandy accepts the QO, they want Tanaka, McCann might be a reach but I think they overreact to the catching disaster they had this year. Beltran is gluttonous but I think they are fine with having Wells and Ichiro as overpaid backup OFs considering they both stink (they won't keep running them out there just because they make money) and plus they'll rotate at DH. I bet they give out the biggest non-closer contract this offseason too which I suspect is Benoit.

yeah agree that I don't see Noah or Monty moving but I see us being able to get one or more mid-level players on salary dumps as I've been alluding to. If the Mets are willing to take on a salary then they may be able to extract a prospect also, while not having to use up premium chips. I think there will be a lot of trading this winter in general bc the FA market doesn't have many exciting options.
