  1. We've seen the 8-year mega deals for catchers already like Mauer and Posey, and neither have worked out great. With JT, what, 30 now, I don't want anything beyond 5-6 years. So, @jeffreysfishfry, @SonOfJack's point was that if you don't offer something at least to start that's a real offer , and he winds up taking something around what a "real" offer would be, it'd be a massive disappointment that there was a chance to get him with a legit reasonable offer. TLDR: don't give him a BS lowball "we tried" offer that he's sure to decline out of hand. I'm not good with coming up with

  2. MLBTR posted this for the Marlins' arbitration-eligible guys and projections: Method 1: Applies model directly with actual statistics from this 60-game season Method 2: Extrapolates all counting stats to would-be 162-game totals. One home run becomes 2.7 home runs. Method 3: For non-first-time eligibles, finds the raise they’d get in a 162 game season, then gives them 37% of that raise Player - Method 1 / Method 2 / Method 3 Jesus Aguilar – $3.6MM / $6.1MM / $3.9MM Jorge Alfaro – $1.7MM / $2.2MM / $1.7MM Brian Anderson – $2.2MM / $4.3MM / $2.2

  3. Is the suggestion here that one of the “fringe OFs” + secondary piece(s) would net you a quality big leaguer? No chance. And Ureña has no value. Holloway has next to no value. Guzman looked terrible. I think you’re way over-inflating what those type of guys would bring back in a trade.

  5. It’s possible that the a Royals price themselves out of a partner for Salvy. The smart thing for them IMO would be to trade him and really begin their rebuild, but if they’re stuck on getting a Bleday/Meyer/Cabrera return, no thank you. I fully expect one of the fringe OF’s to be moved in a deal this offseason: Connor Scott, Jerar, Misner, etc. We’ll get a good sense of how the organization views these guys. From there, there are multiple secondary pieces that can included to increase the value if needed: Urena, Alfaro, Guzman, Holloway, any of the 2020 draft picks outside
