So what would be fair for Lucroy given all the uncertainties today? Maybe a 50-100 prospect plus a couple low-level pitching fliers?
Jeff Sullivan
10:49
More than that, I think -- perhaps something headlined by a really good pitching prospect. But now I love the idea of Profar proposed earlier

Do the Orioles need one or two more OF? Who do you see them targeting?
Jeff Sullivan
10:49
They still have another hole. I could see them just bringing Parra back

"The Braves aren't looking to build around players who are 30+ years old" - why did they sign markakis? what was that all about?
Jeff Sullivan
10:50
Nobody knows

So is Ozuna sticking around MIA? Or do you think Loria caves and gets a less than frontline SP for him?
Jeff Sullivan
10:50
At this point they might choose to let Ozuna try to rebuild value in the first half. I don't think they got the offers they were looking for
Maybe they re-visit after some of these FA outfielders sign

If you were GM of the Pirates, which starting pitcher would you sign?
Jeff Sullivan

Fister

Masterson in the bullpen or something
Vic

Any best guess on where Cespedes lands? Haven't heard much rumbling about him.
Jeff Sullivan
10:51
Like Dave, now I'm just thinking he goes back to Detroit

What do the Dodgers do about the rotation now?
Jeff Sullivan
10:51
I can see a fit for one of the TB guys if those front offices can try not to be suspicious of one another

How'd the O's get Kim so cheap? Is he THAT much of a risk?
Jeff Sullivan
10:52
Low upside. Not a skilled defender and he won't hit for a lot of power. But this is still *too* cheap, implying over-cautious behavior from MLB
But think about the cheap salaries Aoki has received. Teams just aren't wild about low-upside starters I guess

Warren: Dave Cameron proposed Seager, Montas, Barnes and Guerrero for Archer and McGee. Fair?
Klaw: Awful for the Rays.
Jeff Sullivan
10:53
Disagree with Law

Dobthe dodgers punt on 16 and go in on 17 with all their youth, or pay the tall order for Fernandez?
Jeff Sullivan
10:53
They're still set up to be perfectly competitive in 2016
10:54
They could do absolutely nothing and remain about as good as the Giants. Might even be better
The Boat

What is the current trade value of James Paxton? Is he worth more than a solid set-up reliever?
Jeff Sullivan
10:54
Definitely worth more. Four years of control, lefty, throws hard
10:55
All right, I need to get rolling so I can accomplish some other stuff
So thank you everybody for hanging out, and I'm sorry for what I didn't or couldn't address. We'll do it again...*not* next week! But at some point, at the same time. Until then, be well and have great days
So long!
