Picking up from a Brandon Nimmo post, my Joc Pederson projection was very optimistic about his batting average and a little too rosy about his homer power. And I adjusted my bid up a little, though I may knock him back down again as I think about him. He's of high enough risk I don't think I want to bid him up to full price.

Darn you are right Peter.  I should have double-checked number Alex's Jan 10 post (missing that zero) on Schwarber before celebrating!  It was too good to be true!

One Cubbies blog agrees with me on the Pederson-for-Schwarber swap:

Cots has Schwarber signing for $7M this year with a $3M buyout next year, which they make as a $10M contract for this year.

If i recall, Schwarber signed for something like $10 mill. Cubs got roughly the same hitter and a guy who can play all OF slots if need be for $3 mill less. Schwarbs was due to get between $8-9 mill in arbitration so Cubs saved only a mill or so.

Considering that the Nats only paid Schwarber $1 million, this looks like an overpay to me.  But OK, I'm a Nats fan. 

Anyone besides me think that these two are pretty much the same players?  Maybe Joc plays better defense?

According to Jeff Passan, Pederson will be paid $7 million. $750,000 less than the Dodgers paid him last year.

Now, even I admit you shouldn't get a raise for hitting .190.

But if he had gone to arbitration he would have, which is why he was a free agent.
