I kind of expect us to just add nominal pieces this year. A pen arm and a back end guy, to help with the back half. Since we don't have many days off.

Agree. I’d rather go quantity that quality. Orioles have those pieces too like Cashner + a bullpen arm (Brach, Givens, O’Day).

Hopefully that Chasner guy is a lot better than Cashner. I don't trust him at all.

I hope our Cobs can figure out a way to get Archer.

Hopefully his performance has lowered the price, but probably not.

Hot take: Archer is not a very attractive trade target. He hasn’t had a sub-4 ERA since 2015, he turns 30 in September, and the Rays are naturally going to try to get value like they’re trading away an ace. You can get a 3ish win pitcher in much more attractive packages than Archer.

I’m not an Archer fan. Especially for the cost.

I like Archer. I'm still made we traded him. At the same time, there are better fits vs. what we'd have to give up.

(On the other hand, the Rays traded Colome for much less than expected so who knows)

I want Seth Lugo as a bullpen/swingman option. I also wouldn’t mind Gsellman but really like Lugo.

Lugo is controlled through 2023, I’d trade Adbert + for him. Lugo’s basically what we want Adbert to turn in to and he’s controlled plenty long, I’d trade off the little more control of Adbert and a little ceiling to lock in Lugo’s value and control right now.

I had the exact same thought! The Cubs were very interested in Lugo this offseason if I remember correctly. His curveball is very good with one of the highest RPMs among all pitchers. His stock has definitely increased and it'll be pretty hard to trade for him now.

I've liked Lugo for some time too, but for all those same reasons are probably why the Mets won't trade him for anything short of a good haul. They should do some rebuilding and he's controllable and effective.
