Most of the non-Cespedes OFs make sense.

You guys say that Melancon will sign before Jansen/Chapman. Wouldn't it behoove him to wait? The teams that missed the two better closers will have a big bidding war and his price will skyrocket.
Tim Dierkes

Not necessarily...Melancon is an inferior pitcher to Chapman and Jansen, and the teams that miss out on those two might not care for him.

When will we finally see the offseason begin? Im anxious!
Tim Dierkes

I would anticipate a couple of big signings before month's end.

Which "ace" is most likely to be traded this off-season?
Tim Dierkes

Sale.

If StL is looking for CF, think they make a run at trading for Ender (Mallex moves to CF). Do their potential trade chips line up with what the Bravos are looking at accomplishing?
Tim Dierkes
1:55
I think that as the Braves turn the corner toward contending, they like having an established CF.

Do you like the blue jays chances of re signing encarnacion?
Tim Dierkes
1:55
Not too much, I'd put that around 20%.

Eaton a good fit for the Nats? Much less expensive than Fowler
Tim Dierkes
1:56
Eaton is better as a corner OF, and he would be plenty expensive in the prospect value you'd give up. This was a six-win player this year. White Sox could rebuild and still might not trade him.

Who is your "under the radar" guy?
Tim Dierkes
1:57
Charlie Morton and Daniel Hudson are a couple I like.

Could the Twins be dark horse on anyone in your top 25?
Tim Dierkes
1:58
Ramos or Wieters.

What are your thoughts if Rangers sign Bautista... Him and odor get along ok?
Tim Dierkes
1:58
Most people seem to think there's too much bad blood there for that to happen.

Just curious, whats MLBTR % on FA guesses been like in the past?
Tim Dierkes

It's been a while since I've checked. I'd expect us to get 8-15 of them right. And some of the ones we get right will probably be the more obvious guys! So have fun with it, and pay more attention to the list of possible suitors than to the one team picked for each guy.
Thanks for chatting everyone!
