Miguel Montero Washington Nationals

Says he's "pretty much retired." Plans to join his brother-in-law as a player rep, according to Rotowire.

Would they prefer Chris Davis?

Has anyone ever hit exactly .199 two years in a row?

van wilhoite LVW
Alex Wood Los Angeles Dodgers

Just read three Dodger blog articles that say he will be(or should be) traded arguing that with all the starters on roster right now, they were still interested in signing Garret Richards, trading for Corey Kluber  and also signing free agent Yusei Kikuchi . Guess we'll see what happens in the GM meetings and thereafter.

Thanks Jeff. At $1, I cant go wrong. It is a positive spin tho. Shows Maeda in bullpen and, of course, Urias is coming if all goes well in building up his innings. There's always injuries. Cliche time: You can't have enuff starting pitching. Thx again. Pete

Rosterresource.com predicts him to be #5 in the rotation.

jeff merk jeffamerk

I own him at a $1 and would love the $15 value to be true, but their depth chart shows him as a bullpen piece with 7 starters ahead of him. Kershaw, Buehler, Ryu, Hill Stripling, Maeda makes 6 and while Urias is listed in bullpen with him, it is said he is to be worked back into rotation.

Not sure if this was a mistake carried over from last years value, but I don't see it, unless two or three guys go by the wayside.

Of course a chart is only as good as the person who draws it up, but as Wood was moved to the bullpen at end of last year, it seems pretty accurate to me.

Any other insight?

The crash was rigged by bandits who then robbed the deceased. It's sad to see a baseball loving country like Venezuela devolving into such chaos.

I drafted Victor Robles in 2016 and I hope that he helps the Nat's world make more sense for you.

This time the Cards benefited from the fact that most of the better teams already have a 1B.

Bryce Harper Washington Nationals

??? Fangraphs has Harper bottoming out at 1.6 in 2014, but rebounding to 9.6 in 2015.  Otherwise never below 3.0, with a career WAR of 30.7 at age 26.  Corbin's career WAR is 15.9, and only 9.6 before last year.  And he is 29.  

I wish Corbin had failed that physical...

Bob Elam Bob-in-TX

Did you know he has posted a WAR of 1.5 or less in 3 of the last 5 seasons?

One thing seems clear from the metrics ... you probably shouldn't have Bryce Harper and Juan Soto in the same OF, unless you have someone the caliper of a young Andruw Jones playing in between them.

Over the last 20 years or so teams rarely get what they should in return when they trade with the Cardinals.

Pat Corbin Washington Nationals

So I simply cannot grasp how the Nats give a 29 year old pitcher who tops out at 92 mph, with only 2 good seasons over an injury plagued 8 year period, a whopping $140 million for 6 years but are maxed out on a 26 year old future HOF hitter at $300 million over 10 years.  In what world does that make sense?

Not mine.  And I was a Nats' full season ticket holder for the first five years they existed.

Bob Elam Bob-in-TX
Nathan Eovaldi Boston Red Sox

As a Nats fan I say sincerely that I wish the Nats had signed Eovaldi at this price and let the Sox have Corbin at the price Washington paid.

But now, with Corbin in DC, I must become a Corbin fan.

And so Texpope, who owns Corbin on an extendable $1 contract in our home keeper league,  smiles that Grinch smile and begins formulating Corbin trade offers for my top talent.

Yeesh.

Bob Elam Bob-in-TX
Derek Dietrich Miami Marlins

The Marlins currently have one of Garrett Cooper, Pete O'Brien, and/or Pedro Alvarez penciled in to start at first. Season ticket holders, all 23 of them, are not happy.

Tim McLeod tlmcleod
Nathan Eovaldi Boston Red Sox

This is the difference between the haves and have-nots in baseball.  If Eovaldi pitches like he did last season, the Red Sox make out and have a very good pitcher as their #3 or #4 for several years.  If he doesn't the Red Sox eat the sunk cost (see Rusney Castillo- still to receive $11.77M in 2019 and $14.27M in 2020) and it affects the franchise not at all.  For teams other than the Yankees (Ellsbury $21.14M in 2019 and 20), Dodgers (are they still paying Carl Crawford?), Cubs (Jayson Heyward $23M for 1.73 WAR/season), and maybe a couple of others, eating $12+M of bad money is crippling, eating another $17M would be time to throw in the towel and rebuild (see Chris Davis).

This is as much an in-house evolution of Nick Gordon as anything else.

Luis Valbuena Los Angeles Angels
Two ex-Astros during the team's rebuilding years - Valbuena and Castillo - passed away in a car crash after a Venezuelan league game.  For a guy who was never a top prospect, Valbuena had a very nice 3-4 year peak that made him a solid major leaguer.
