Schwarber for Archer, who says no?

Jeff Luhnow said yesterday he has the green light to increase payroll after the relative penny pinching of the Astros over the past several years. Do you see them being in the market for EE, Fowler, Cespedes, etc? Outside of trading for an Archer or Quintana, I don't see much utility in trying to sign a #4/5 pitcher given their organizational depth.
Dave Cameron
12:30
Cespedes makes the most sense, given their OF needs, I think.

Who ends up at DH for the Royals?
Dave Cameron
12:32
I could see them going for a guy like Adam Lind.
Erik

How much of an advantage do the Dodgers and Cubs have in re-signing Jansen and Chapman? Is it quantifiable in terms of dollars?
Dave Cameron
12:32
Probably zero.
Jansen is going to the highest bidder, period.
12:33
Chapman likely has zero loyalty to a team he just played ~2 months for.

Could Justin Turner fit with the Angels? They don't seem too high on Yunel Escobar
Dave Cameron
12:33
Don't think they're going to keep throwing money at older guys.

a couple guys on twitter were saying Schwarber much more valuable than JBJ. you disagree i assume?
Dave Cameron
12:33
Yeah, that's silly.
Zonk
12:34
Jed Hoyer would like to find the next Andrew Miller or Wade Davis, i.e. failed starter that can be converted into awesome reliever. Can you name a couple guys that might have a shot at that type of conversion?
Dave Cameron
12:34
Andrew Cashner, maybe?
Luke

Obviously the Twins are in full rebuild mode, how do you feel about the front office moves?
Dave Cameron
12:34
Falvey and Levine both have good reputations. This should be an improvement for the decision making in MIN.
CJM
12:35
Dodgers list out today from Longenhagen? He mentioned it may be the day in his chat yesterday. Take away some of this pain, pls
Dave Cameron
12:35
Yep, Carson is editing it right now.
Julio Pepper
12:35
Wait really? Albies/Allard/Fried doesn't get you most of the way to Archer? Isn't that like a top 10 and two top 50 prospects?
Dave Cameron
12:35
No, no it's not.
Matthew
12:36
What do you think the cubs do with outfield jam? Already crowded with Heyward, Schwarber, depending on the playing time for Baez, and Zobrist seems to be logical starters. Who do you think is more likely to be dealt Almora or Soler?
Wadlez
12:36
Nats need to move Turner to SS and get an OF right.. Also a closer?
Dave Cameron
12:36
Soler seems to be the odd man out.
12:37
Turner's speed is probably more valuable in the OF than at SS.
Steven

Would you go full rebuild on the D-backs? Farm is barren, MLB team is full of holes.
Dave Cameron
12:38
I think you probably go forward with what you have until mid-season, and then re-evaluate. Greinke/Miller/Corbin all likely to have more value if they bounce back than they do now.

The royals have a lot of free agents coming up after 2017 with not a whole lot in their farm system. What do you think their short and long term strategies are?
Dave Cameron
12:39
I think they're going to try to make one more run in 2017, fall short, then rebuild.
Joe
12:39
I'd be interested to see a post about a Pirates rebuild. As a fan, I think I'd like to see them just go for it for the next year or two and then blow it all up but I think there's a good argument to sell off now.
Dave Cameron
12:39
Yeah, I definitely plan on writing about it.
Paul
12:39
How much would Atlanta improve if they added Hammel, Dickey, and Wieters this offseason?
Dave Cameron
12:39
Not much?
Rick Hahn
12:39
What's my realistic haul for Sale and Quintana? 3-4 top 50 prospects for each?
Dave Cameron
12:40
I don't think they trade Sale without getting a big leaguer back in the deal. Could see him going to LA for a package built around Jose De Leon, for instance, but they're going to want a guy they can put on the team right away.
12:41
Quintana won't command the same kind of return.
Roadhog

Crazy idea - A's trading for Verlander? A's have tons of spending room, DET could eat some cash
Dave Cameron
12:41
Why would the A's want Verlander? They're rebuilding.

Is there any way to filter team stats for at bats/war by a position? Cubs lf war just seems to be a sum of complete stats of every guy to play lf. (PA is way too high)
