That's one expensive patrol. Does it include RoboCop?

I'll believe it when we sign someone who's not a career minor leaguer or washed up.

I will believe it when I see it too but 75 million would be nice.

Should've done it this year and sign Jose Abreu to play first...but whatever...Garrett Jones it is.

In case anyone is wondering, they can bring the entire team for roughly $60 million. That would be this

C - Saltalamacchia
1B - G. Jones
2B - Dietrich/Kike
SS - Hechavarria
3B - McGehee
LF - Yelich
CF - Ozuna
RF - Stanton
B - Mathis
B - Baker
B - Dietrich/Kike

B -

SP - Alvarez
SP - Eovaldi
SP - Cosart
SP - Koehler
SP - Heaney

RP - Cishek
RP - Ramos
RP - Morris
RP - Dunn
RP - Capps
RP - Hatcher/Dyson
RP - Hand/Flynn/Veteran Longman

Best case scenario if $75 is realistic is probably trading Cishek and Eovaldi (clears $10 million) for a young 1B and a young 2B/SS/3B type to fill out the position players and provide real competition across the board there (plus real hope for the future), signing a front line SP (Lester, Shields, Scherzer are top 3) for an absolute ton of money, perhaps sign a better veteran RP to upgrade someone above, and then stash a few extra bucks in case needed at deadline if contending and Fernandez looks healthy. Would be nice to dump Jones/Baker money ($7) and get someone better there, but realistically not going to happen.

Depending on who they can get for Cishek/Eovaldi, could be real interesting. Could also see them move Heaney and keep Eovaldi if they got someone with a lot of years (i.e. a package for Starlin Castro).

I honestly think Eovaldi and Cishek as salary dumps is the last thing you do. Maybe Kohler/Hand for a team desperate for SP. Eovaldi is too promising right now to give up on- he just needs more consistency with his pitches.

You sign a OF, move back Yelich to 1B to solve the issue there if it's that BIG of an issue and you sign a veteran with low risk high reward if Yelich struggles. I'm not even sure of Yelich's skills at the bag to be honest and it might be best to leave him alone.

If you can flip jones and baker AFTER you have signed a replacement for 1B or OF you do it. Cant straight dump. The PR hit before you sign someone else will be too harsh considering they just signed.

You trade with the NYY or Boston if you can, I think Jones can benefit from both of their right fields pretty well- and baker seems like the utility type the Red Sox covet.

Who are some FAs in the offseason that we potentially could sign within our budget?

VMart,
Headley,
H2R(FFS I hope Loria doesn't),
Willingham (1b or LF depending on yelich's skills),
Dempster
Shields (if serious about big splash)
Scherzer (same as above)
Peavy
Haren (if option declined and market sucks for 2 year deal)
Floyd
Beckett

Asdrubal would be great. But they are predicting him to sign with Toronto. But other then him, I don't see any young 1B and middle infielders I would want. Maybe a JJ Hardy but I can't see him leaving Baltimore. Mike Morse? If he wants to come back home.

Lou, why would we trade Cishek and/or Eovaldi for a young first baseman when our best major league ready bats are all first base candidates?
