    Just saw the vid. I don’t think he signs with us as he would be like #8 in the pecking order (Kersh, Buehler, Price, Urias, Gonsolin, May and arguably Gray) against another rehabber (Nelson). Fun idea, but he would have to be betting on himself HEAVILY.

    I hope not. Build the super pen and shorten the games while putting Jansen and Kelly in non-impact roles. They can reset the tax again next season.

    1B, combo of Rios, Turner and Muncy with Belli as well on occasion
    3B, ditto sans Belli
    2B, Taylor till Lux
    C, Willie & AB
    LF, Jackie Bradley Jr. & Pollock
    CF, Belli & Bradley Jr.
    RF, 50
    SS, Lindor
    UDH??

    Where's Seager? Build the super pen? Seager and Jansen to MIL for Hader and a prospect. Been reported that Hader is available if the right deal comes along. Arcia's been a major disappointment as MIL's SS. Seager wants to stick long term at SS for better or worse and Boras likely wants to cash in and get an extension done before he gets injured again....probably a better chance of both of those things happening elsewhere. No guarantee that MIL will be able to land any of the prized SS in next year's FA pool and they should be interested in landing help for Yelich before the division runs away again. Can trade for one now and lock him in, or at least put their best foot forward. And safe to say the LAD pen would be super with Hader joining it. Brewers can deal with Jansen and his BS..or go sign Brad Hand. Or both. Whatever. Hader and Lindor....a Rob Pelinka style month for Friedman. Just pull out the Tommy gun and spray

    Interesting bullpen arm can be used like Urias.

    • More reports out today that the Dodgers have been one of the hardest pursuers of Brad Hand this winter, but he has quite a few teams interested in him. The White Sox, Mets and Blue Jays are others that are linked.
    • The belief is the Dodgers are still in on Liam Hendriks as well and he may be nearing his decision, though like Hand, he has many suitors.
    • There is a belief that things could pick up in the week ahead for the non-star players that are said to be growing frustrated with the slow pace taking place at the top of the market. We have heard this in years past with no real swift movement, so we shall see.
    • The Angels are said to be pursuing Cubs catcher Willson Contreras. This would be interesting as it would continue to lengthen a decent Angels lineup, but it could deplete a mediocre farm and remove pieces from the equation that would help land much needed pitching.

    Interesting idea as his velo has maintained to be pretty steady, but I would not be shocked if he wanted to start somewhere.

    I dunno. Maybe Ruiz and another kid. Or another couple kids. The price shouldn't be exorbitant given Lindor's rental status

    Indians are running out of time. Or whatever they're going to call themselves from now on

    I'd rather just trade for Jose Ramirez to man 3b for the next 4 years.

    Safe to say Ramirez will be more expensive and much harder to attain. He's signed through 2023 and at a fairly small number annually. Indians will value that quite a bit

    Tried to be their best friend last year. Their answer was, " we want May and Lux. " Can probably assume that they'd want something starting around May/Lux just to get into the game for Ramirez. And then additional specs to actually win the game and the player

    Yeap, trade being finalized

    Sucks for Lindor that he has to be a Met. One of the better guys in the league, deserves better. Wonder if an extension happens or if they'll cry pandemic and let him hit FA. Would think that he'd rather play for the Blue Jays, but NL/Mets is it. For now at least
