With report that Nats are aggresivly shopping Gio think he hasnt been traded yet is because asking price is too high?
Jeffrey Todd
3:13
I'd expect they are looking for something specific in return, at least at this point. Maybe they'd deal him for prospects if they made a big move for Sale.

Would the Marlins be interested in swapping Yelich to the Blue Jays for Stroman?
Jeffrey Todd
3:14
I'd prefer Christian myself.

With Castro already signed and an underwhelming C FAmarket, does Carson Kelly start an attractive package to get a plus CF for the Cardinals?
Jeffrey Todd
3:15
Yadi is old and only controlled through 2018. And they need a backup now. Think he's staying.
Billy Butler
3:16
Do I get any contract at all? Invite to spring training?
Jeffrey Todd
3:17
Only 30, hit well with Yanks, and only costs the league minimum since the A's are still paying him next year. Don't see why he wouldn't get a big league deal. Hey how about a return to KC?
Going to do a few more and then try to find something to write about for the site ...

Do Desmond Jennings and Jonathan Papelbon get major league deals?
Jeffrey Todd
3:19
I'll say yes. Jennings seems like a solid bet to get a small guarantee as a 4th/5th OF somewhere. And Paps as well, mostly b/c I'm not sure he'll take a minor league deal. Could be a marginal, perhaps incentives-heavy MLB deal or retirement. Padres?

Chances of Jarrod Dyson being traded? Would his bat be exposed as an everyday player?
Jeffrey Todd
3:20
Think it already was. Not sure they are going to be able to improve on that platoon, so I'm guessing he stays put.
Ian

Will Machado ever get extended?
Jeffrey Todd
3:20
Guessing no. He'd cost a ton.

How much of a travesty is it that Rick Porcello won the Cy Young?
Jeffrey Todd
3:21
I can think of other, recent, greater travesties. Wasn't wildly implausible to me.

false, black bear
Jeffrey Todd
3:21
Agree to disagree.
Tom Brady

How much would Clayton Kershaw earn if he were a FA right now?
Jeffrey Todd
3:22
This seems like a fun way to end it ...
3:23
The injury doesn't help, and teams would need to be comfy with medicals. But let's assume they think he's in the clear. Certainly he pitched that way.
Still only 28 years old. Incomparably good. Terrible market.
3:24
I'll guess he'd get $300MM to $350MM. I mean, if Greinke could land over $200MM at his age.
Just spitballing.
Okay, I'm going to end it here.
