Is everyone scared off by his asking price or are the teams using the same strategy to try and lower his price?

Much longer lines for me in Austin then there were in the 2016 election. I waited an hour and a half today as opposed to 15 minutes last time. I hope that means good news for Beto but will see I guess.

I guess with Hamels and Monty he is kind of redundant. Hopefully we get something useful for him though.

Re: Kintzler Team Option Declined

Not worth its own thread but since we are talking about options and opt-outs here, Heyward has one this year right? I highly highly doubt that he will exercise the opt out but until I see that he hasn't .001% of me will hold out hope. Can opt out after the 2018 season If applicable Heyward can opt ...

Fairly interesting article.

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

Here's what I would do. Sign Harper Bring back Chavez and Hamels Sign Jordy Mercer Trade Ian Happ + spare parts for a dominate relief pitcher. Trade Russell for a young reliever with options or a solid relief prospect. Try to get salary relief for these guys if unsuccessful then cut them. Duensing/K...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

What would Hamels realistically get on the open market? I want him back but $20MM seems like too much. Maybe I'm just being too stupid and picking up the option is a no brainer. Depends on if he wants more security or money. I doubt he gets 20 mil a year ... but I could see him get something like 3...

Do the Cubs save money by releasing Grimm now? And if so I wonder if they will be enough under the luxury tax threshold to go out and sign Greg Holland.

I am tired of the Yu pursuit. Give him a deadline and if he doesn't make a decision by then time to move onto either Arrieta or Cobb.

Re: Bullpen Options

Duensing was good last year plus that's not a lot of money so I am totally fine with this deal. I might have went for someone with a little more upside but if they are saving cash for Darvish and or Harper than it makes sense.
