Marlins are still the fifth place team in division even with this move. There are many many moves that could be made to improve the ballclub.
I know but after this move they would start eliminating guys who are supposedly penciled into the starting lineup like Rojas Anderson Alfaro Diaz etc. So realistically there aren't many other moves they could make that wouldn't dramatically affect that.

Now I'm curious about the Mish tweet this morning saying they could still add after this move. Where else could they even realistically add offense to this team now?
Maybe some NRI moves, but I'm just waiting for the more clear updates from Mish after this signing.

It won't surprise me if Puig has no choice but accept our 1year /8~10MM contract offer eventually.

Holy hell I agree with Das. White Sox will finish better than the Indians this year. They had a great offseason and their young players are impressive as shit.

I suspected the Twins would take a huge step back this year but adding Donaldson was a great move. They're going to crush baseball again next year

The Indians still have the best pitching in the division.

I would imagine teams are reluctant due to the length, rather than the AAV. He should be able to get something close to the number he wants on a one-year deal.

If Puig lower down the asking price to a much more reasonable number, I think it's not a bad idea to add him to this team to boost the bargaining chips in the TV deal negotiations.

I'm taking Lucas Giolito over any pitcher the Indians throw out there.

So no..

The Indians do not.

And play him where?

Once Dickerson signed the Puig door closed.

It was never an AND situation it was more a one or the other situation.

One pitcher compared to an entire rotation, though.

Now if Kopech returns and dominates we have a different story.

Who is even considered the #1 in the Indian rotation?

Carrasco coming off cancer?
Clevenger who I dont think has pitched 150 ip
Bieber who is more a mid rotation guy?

Kuechel at this point should bring some great stalibity to that rotation and I think they should be improved defensively. Maybe.

But yes, if Kopech is the same Kopech before injury it almost doesnt matter what the White Sox throw out there in the 4/5 rotation spots.

I also am not a big Gio Gonzalez fan, but he is a solid rotation opton as well for the Pale Hose.

I think I"d also take Berrios over any of the top 3 in the Indian roation right now as well for what its worth.
