    Good time to start this as we have the first trade. The Tigers have traded Cameron Maybin to the Angels.

    Cardinals pick up the option on Jaime Garcia and decline the option on Jordan Walden. Wouldn't mind throwing a spring training invite to walden

    I would love to go after Walden again. When healthy, he's legit.

    The Royals announced they're picking up options on Davis and Escobar, but no announcement on Volquez. They could be working on a sign and trade right now before announcing either way. I think Volquez would be a good option.

    I could even see a Volquez/Kennedy trade where we take on two contracts and a couple of prospects.

    I could see us making a move for Garcia or Holland out of the gate. We'd check the box for a vet and a lefty in the rotation.

    I could see us moving quickly to fill holes and then work on upgrading from there.

    Justin Ruggiano dropped by the Mets:

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2016/1...&post-id=76298

    If one of Mallex or Inciarte is traded, or if Mallex starts the year in AAA, I would like to see Riggiano as the 4th OFer. He can cover all 3 spots, bats RHed with a career .865 OPS vs LHers, and would be the perfect compliment to Inciarte and Markakis, as well as a defensive replacement for Kemp.

    I would prefer Ruggiano to Rajai Davis because he should be much cheaper.

    Roster Construction 101 does call for a decent right-handed bat on the bench. Which we don't currently have. He could be our primary pinch hitter against lefties and give Markakis the occasional game off in right.

    I was kind of hoping he'd be our guy, but I'm fine with Snitker.

    hopefully we finally move Markakis
