Re: 2015 Winter Meetings Thread

With Bethancourt, Hedges, and Norris can we have a Padres C to groom? Bethancourt and Hedges need some help offensively, Norris is good and a switch hitting 27 YO.

The Cubs wanted Heyward for Samardzija before Infield Heyward got thrown on the table by the A's.

My guess is they land the Cuban 2B, but Murphy/Kendrick would be pretty slick on their part.

Don't know exactly where to put this, but Passan says Otani could be posted next year. https://twitter.com/jeffpassan/status/674663737316503554 He won't, but even getting posted in 2018 would be way earlier than usual. He'd be all of 24, just out of the first injury nexus too for whatever that is w...

Didn't we go through this the seeming half dozen times teams let Adrian Beltre hit FA?

Re: Jason Heyward - 2016 CF?

The earliest they should really consider moving Montero is next year when Lucroy, Weiters, and Castro might hit FA.

Re: Jason Heyward - 2016 CF?

Looks like signing Heyward would make them the best offense in baseball on paper pretty easily. That's not hard to believe.

Re: Starlin Traded to Yankees for Adam Warren & Brendan Ryan

So out are Dexter Fowler, Starlin Castro, Fernando Rodney, and Jonathan Herrerra. Possibly Jorge Soler in the near future. In are John Lackey, Ben Zobrist, Adam Warren, Rex Brothers, and Brendan Ryan. I feel as though there's a trend here, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Adding some fire to ...

Re: Joel Sherman: Starlin Traded to Yankees

Can someone fill us in about Warren? don't know much about him Generic RHer as far as tools - average size, low 90 fastball, spins a slider and a decent curve, has average control and command, versatile pitcher who has started and relieved effectively...I liken his role on this roster as similar to...

Imagine this + fitting in Zobrist too? They'd be a Gausman-esque young arm away from whatever it is I think I want.

Re: Starlin Rumor

Warren's the kind of arm that could get an opportunity and pull off a Tanner Roark-esque run. He's boring but knows how to pitch with all the advantages of being healthy and cheap. He AND Sanchez would be a coup, I don't even think Sanchez is attainable for Castro without Warren. If the Cubs DID som...

Re: Starlin Rumor

Yankees could put together something interesting for Castro, I would think. Not a top tier farm system but tons of lottery tickets and potential relief arms.

Re: Jason Heyward - 2016 CF?

A couple interesting FanGraphs pieces on Heyward: Looking for some potential comps, I searched back to 2002, as far as our defensive data goes, and looked for corner outfielders who accrued more than 15 defensive runs saved in a single season in right field before switching to center field the next ...

Surely trading Miggy isn't a prerequisite, right? Hammel, sure. I'm not remotely sold on Schwarber/Contreras in 2016. I mentioned this in the Cahill thread, but maybe the media just has it wrong on how much money they have to spend. They just dropped 8 million on 3 relievers they didn't exactly hav...
