    Starlin Castro and some prospects. Castro has insane potential. He's just entering his prime now. Plays great defensively at both 2B and SS.

    Benefits could go down, I suppose. Less veterans = less benefits?

    And you know he's not, how?

    I know you're kidding here, but if this is to be believed, my bet is that Headley is on the move somewhere in a different deal. Maybe the Dodgers realize they need to get payroll down, and in order to sign Jansen, they can't sign Turner. So maybe Headley is heading there as Turner's replacement. Castro moves to 3rd, where I think he will be OK, better then he was at 2B. He has the reflexes, and the range is much less than at 2B. Dozier replaces Castro at 2B.


    If this guess of mine is accurate, wonder what's coming back from the Dodgers. Don't think it's Puig.

    I don't know why anyone thinks Castro would be OK at 3B. He's awful at 2B, and now he's going to learn 3B on the fly? I wouldn't accept that to go smoothly.

    He also said , that, he asked for 6 years, but that doesn't mean he will get it.
    What we can appreciate now is that the Yankees from 1996-2003 were even more extraordinary than we thought.

    Agree, Nelson. I've. Always thought that CF is where his real value is.

    Don't really understand how Valbuena fits this team. I like him as a player, but it's an odd fit.

    I really think they can get under the cap in 2018 and then have a shot at 2019 Free Agent class.

    Okay, then don't accept it. Your choice.

    Nevermind, lets extend him. He's still 26, just entering his prime like you say. I'm enthused!

    What was Dozier doing at the same age?

    Looks like Melanson and Hill are off the table. Melanson to the Giants and Hill to the Dodgers

    I'd make that trade. Rizzo is a prospect hugger. Hope he doesn't get him for anything less.

    Why would the Nats trade their top 2 prospects for a declining OF who is a FA in 2 years?

    They should use those dudes to get Sale.

    Chapman wants at least 6 years on his next contract. 6 years/20 mill a year seems a little steep for what the Yankees are willing to pay.
    When I was a kid, my father told me, "Never hit anyone in anger, unless you're absolutely sure you can get away with it."

    They are a win now team, within the next two years. They should sell high on Giolito. He's basically Severino with less velocity and control. Robles struggled after being promoted and is still very much an unknown.

    Yeah, I take that gamble that McCutchen returns to a 6-8 WAR guy.

    Just checking out Dozier stats. Career 108 OPS+, 20+ HR last 3 seasons including 42 last year.

    All in.

    It would probably be 6 with a lower AAV, but 6 is too long for a reliever. Especially one with odd mechanics like him. Too much of a risk
