I need those guys to come over now! Mathieson might actually be signable. I'll have to look into that if I fail on Oh and Reed.

The site is Mets360.com. Stories about all 30 teams go up afterwards, I don't remember the exact timing, but in November.

Otani and Mikolas might help that rotation, Peter. Scott Mathieson is also looking for work and had a very good run for Yomiuri. Over the course of his six years in Japan he managed 45 saves, 152 holds, and a 2.30 ERA.

Sounds like fun. Is there a link for the whole thing?

The "look deeply at an organization" is also the appeal to me of Out of The Park baseball.   I've cut back now so I don't completely waste my life, but when I was playing, my goal was to take each different organization and build a championship team (without taking too much advantage of trades with the AI).

Some teams were rather easy to do this with.

Others, not so much.

I participate in something called the GM Project, which Brian Joura (who runs Mets360) conducts every October. This is my third year as the Twins GM, competing against 29 other faux GMs, conducting the entire offseason in one week.

Today I:

Traded Steven Gonsalves, Fernando Romero and Trevor Hildenberger for JT Realmuto ($4.2M).

Traded Jason Castro ($8M) for Tony Wolters ($550,000) and Harrison Musgrave.

My Twins are going for the win this year.

Clearing Castro's salary leaves me with $32M for free agents. I need a starter and could use a closer.

The problem is the market is pretty thin for starters and closers. I'm not sure I want to break the bank on Jake Arrieta.

The game doesn't take into account future years and long term contracts, which limits the strategy, but it is surprisingly fun to look closely at an organization and try to figure out what assets work together and which are excess/tradeable.

I ended up keeping both of them (and dumping a keeper in Jay Bruce). Normally, you don't want to nominate your own guys, but I may with Realmuto for this very reason. If I don't get him, I am probably just going to scrape the bottom of the barrel so I want to know either way so I can allocate that money elsewhere.

If you decide on Realmuto, make sure he gets called out before Posey does.

My inclination is to keep Realmuto. If there's a bidding war, you let him go. By taking one person out of the bidding, you slightly improve the chance the bidding stops at a price you can accept.

To follow up my own question, why the position scarcity is perplexing here is on one hand, taking a catcher as a topper could give leverage at a scarce position. On the other hand, if catchers are scarce, you could argue that Realmuto's price will be driven up beyond what you want to top at, making a guy like Carpenter a better topper keeper.
