$8 million? Well played, sir, and a hard pass! I thought he’d get closer to $10 than not so was never expexting him back. Now’s the time to mix the future with the present and gamble a little. I assume Harper in that last sentence. Find the next Chavez, honestly should not be so hard.

Yeah there’s going to be around a half dozen guys not signed come February we can have for nothing that conceivably could be as good or better than Chavez and we aren’t committed more than 1 year and maybe a few million if incentives are hit.

I'm not sure there will be a half dozen guys laying around in February that we can get for next to nothing that we can count on putting up 1.15 ERA, 42K/5BB, ERA+ of 374, and WHIP of .795.

You can count on Chavez to do that?

Well yeah, there likely won’t be a single FA relief pitcher who puts up those numbers over a full year next year and Chavez certainly isn’t going to do that this year or in 2 years either. I’m talking about guys who will be better, conceivably, than Chavez starting this coming year who will come a lot cheaper than him and will be available. Unless you think Chavez is like a top 3 relief pitcher in baseball based off his stop with us last year.

Just like Duensing last offseason..... The goal should be to try and find the next Chavez/Duensing on the cheap instead of doubling down on 30 something year old RPs putting up a career year/stretch but otherwise have a spotty track record and/or just okay stuff. A ton of those guys exist and it's a matter of identifying them (which we have successfully twice now in Duensing and Chavez for 1 year) but you probably don't want to end up paying them like we did Duesning you want to overturn them and find 2-3 guys to bring in to ST and hope one sticks for that spot.

Pretty good gamble for the Pads. He’s been a good pitcher when healthy. Not quite apples to apples, but you can compare the $15M for 2 years they’re paying Richards to the &17M for 1 year the Dodgers are paying Ryu, and this looks like a bargain.

The Nationals appear to be nearing a trade with the Indians to bring in catcher Yan Gomes. Veteran reporter Bill Madden suggested on Twitter that a deal was in the works, with Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic among others reporting (Twitter link) that the sides are in “serious discussions.” It’s hard to say precisely how likely an agreement is, but it seems there’s real momentum toward a swap.

That trade worked out well for them

The Diamondbacks have non-tendered a trio of notable players, per a club announcement. Reliever Brad Boxberger, starter Shelby Miller, and infielder/outfielder Chris Owings will all be sent onto the open market.

Right-hander Pierce Johnson has announced (via Twitter) a new deal to pitch for the Hanshin Tigers in Japan.


He pitched for the Giants last season. Best of luck. We still have Underwood.
