    It's important to note that: Urena has 1.5 WAR in 138 IP Smith 1.2 in 77 IP Richards 1.1 in 90.1 iP Pablo .3 in 47 IP Straily averaged a 1.5 basically 2016/2017 when he wasn't hurt, and will only be 30. This isn't confusing anyone with the Indians, but they might have two-three 2+ WAR pitchers (ideally Caleb and Richards hit their peak with the best stuff of the lot and being club controlled), and two-three 1.5 type guys. There is something to be said of having a solid, let's say, 800-900 innings thrown collectively here of solid mid-rotation innings. That's worth exploring to see if someone takes off, and gives them a fighting chance with an above average bullpen (hopefully).

    Franco's total WAR in his career of 4+ seasons is just barely higher than Brain's WAR in 2018.

    Fangraphs agrees with you so you're not wrong - https://www.fangraphs.com/statss.aspx?playerid=18289&position=3B/OF#fielding I still think you put him at 3B though and if "in a season, give or take" he isn't better, you can always kick him to the OF then. It's not like he is blocking anyone at 3B or RF at the moment, or will forget how to play defense in RF.

    2021 stories: "Marlins, coming off of their first winning season since 2009, have brought back Giancarlo Stanton, who got valuable playoff and leadership experience with the Yankees over the last three years." IMO best case scenario right there.

    Stanton wants things to be good here so he can opt out after 2020 and come back to a winning team

    I have been thinking about this lately with Straily. I think he could be a non-tender, but he's not going to cost more than $4 million at the same time, and that's still real value if he turns back into 2016/2017 where he was objectively a pretty good 4th SP. I don't think they need to sign any pitchers. Assuming that Alcantara is in the pen, and they trade Barraclough (which I think is a given): SP - Urena, Straily, Smith, Richards, Pablo (Neidert, Gallen, and Yamamoto looming) RHP - Steckenrider, Alcantara, Guerrero, Wittgren, and let's say Brigham (Merandy, Hernandez, Meyer, and Kinley on 40 man for call ups, and Guzman looming) LHP - Conley, Chen, Garcia (Quijada and Peters on 40 man for call ups) That is plenty of arms. Churn through all of them and see who sticks. Of course, if some magical cheap signing like an Eovaldi presents itself, go for it.
