Sorry, but $17 is a pipe dream.

Chase Anderson Milwaukee Brewers

Too high.

I'm working on picks and pans for the Guide. Chase Anderson stands out as the biggest ERA minus FIP (5.22) in all of baseball (150+ IP).

I expect there will be three or four other pans in Guide. We love to pile on.

Robbie Grossman Minnesota Twins

100% he's on an opening day roster.  And you'll make money on him, because it'll never take $5 to get him.

Mike Dean TMU2009
Clayton Kershaw Los Angeles Dodgers

Too high. You won't have to pay that much.

If you get him, say, for $24, you don't want to pat yourself on the back; you just hope you didn't make a mistake.

Robinson Cano Seattle Mariners

Seems like it's a done deal. Will be announced on Monday after all players have passed physicals.

Addison Russell Chicago Cubs

Alex I was intrigued when I read this, but in researching it this morning I believe ALL arbitration contracts are "non-guaranteed."  See below from MLB.com.  Is that correct, i.e that Russell is being treated the same as all arbitration-eligible players?

"Players who are on arbitration (unless specified at the time of the agreement), Minor League or split contracts are not fully guaranteed their salaries.

Players on arbitration contracts who are cut on or before the 16th day of Spring Training are owed 30 days' termination pay (based on the prorated version of his agreed-upon arbitration salary). A player cut between the 16th day and the end of Spring Training is owed 45 days' termination pay (based on the prorated version of his agreed-upon arbitration salary). The arbitration salary becomes guaranteed if the player is on the 25-man roster when the season begins."

Charlie Finley's idea way back when is becoming reality: make every player a free agent every year.

Avisail Garcia Chicago White Sox

Non-tendered yesterday.

Rotorob, Adler, Patton, Winick, the Cooks, Davidson and Davitt all panned him in last year's Guide.

This year?

My bet right now is Japan.

Time to give Hernan Perez a slight uptick? Someone has to man 2B until the eventual arrival of Hiura.
