Well, they have made some rebuilding-ish moves, but they also haven't overseen a committed sell-off of veterans combined with a tanking effort to grab high draft picks in multiple years.

Lucroy is probably looking at Mac/Martin money next offseason.
Jeffrey Todd
3:27
I think he could out-earn both with a good season.
Angel Pagan

Do I end up in Baltimore 2yrs 14mil?
Jeffrey Todd
3:28
Not inconceivable. I don't know if there's that much money out there for him, but it's a fair "good 4th OF" contract. Chris Young would be the comp.
3:29
Okay, going to take a few more and wrap this up ...
Red Sox 4 Life

Could the Jays and Detroit matchup on a jd martinez swap?
Jeffrey Todd
3:29
In theory, but Jays haven't shown a willingness to part with long-term value for short-term fixes. Doesn't seem likely to me.

Does Joe Mauer hang up his cleats after his contract runs out in 2018? Or does he test FA?
Jeffrey Todd
3:30
No idea, but barring a change in trajectory, he's just not a very useful player.
Buchek's Bat
3:31
Any takers for Jhonny Peralta, if they made him available?
Jeffrey Todd
3:31
Sure, if the Cards keep some money.
Wallace and Gromit
3:31
Huston Street a fit for WAS?
Jeffrey Todd
3:32
Street has negative value. No particular reason to think he's a closer at this stage.

Not many Braves questions today, are they done for this off season?
Jeffrey Todd
3:32
Ha, I usually get lots of complaints about too many Braves questions. I expect they are mostly done.

Is Stroman still regarded as a premium young SP? It seems like there is doubt, but he's only 24 and pitched well in the post season
Jeffrey Todd
3:33
Depends on your definition, I guess. He's a quality, affordable arm, but I don't think anyone views him as a budding ace.

What does the traffic look like on here? Pretty average amount in the chat, more, or less?
Jeffrey Todd

Robust!
Thanks all for participating. I'm going to head over and see what I can't write on the site this evening.
Talk again next week!
