    I think LaMahieu will do well in New York. It is a VERY hitter friendly park. Maybe as much as Coors. Also, the Yankees are in a better spot in terms of being competitive over the next 2 years

    Didn't we have 7 total arb eligible?.. outside of Gausman, who is missing?
    I guess we have smoothed things out with Folty

    Wow that a surprising move by the Dodgers. Would much rather get JTR.

    A window is not a window is not a window.

    I certainly agree that the goal should not to be to intentionally light the fuse on the dynamite.

    I think it's more realistic to talk about 5 year windows than 10 year windows.

    You can make moves that increase probabilities in the short term that don't put a built-in expiration date on the whole she-bang. You might reach one regardless of what you do though.

    When you get near it, I think it's better to go ahead and do some re-tooling than it is to try and squeeze more long shot playoff appearances out of the club until you eventually reach the end of the line.

    We aren't really too far apart on what we would do though, I don't think.

    Machado to the Phillies as 3B would put them around 10 added wins and counting.

    Yup. Would be big. We’d really have to add a guy like Realmuto to realistically keep ahead in the division. It’s so much stronger.

    windows close for various reasons--old age, bad luck, bad decisions

    the latter are what a GM has under his control

    the Cards have shown that you can both win multiple World Series and keep that window open a long time

    we also showed that it is possible to keep the window open a long time (and we did manage to win a World Series)

    the Indians are currently in the midst of what looks to be a nice run even on a limited budget...remains to be seen if they will win a WS

    Per Rosenthal, this doesn’t stop them from going after JTR. Blue Jays eating most of what Martin is owed.

    Word is the dodgers may still be in on JTR as Barnes has an option left, can play infield, or could go to Miami if they swung a trade

    There is not a chance the 2019 version of Russell Martin would preclude the #Dodgers from continuing to pursue J.T. Realmuto.

    On second thought, Martin can back up Barnes and #Dodgers, if they choose, can simply stop dealing with #Marlins. LAD excited about work Barnes is doing with their hitting coaches, think he can get back to 2017 production. They also have two top catching prospects getting closer.

    With the arb agreements, I have payroll at $108M. Opening day payroll for 2018 was $118M. Assuming a small bump up that would leave AA with 10-15M to play with.

    This will take them out of the JTR race imo. I wish he would hurry up and get traded already. Miami has botched the piss out of this.

    This would make sense as to why we have not made a move since November....I think now that AA officially knows where he stands payroll wise, we make our moves now.
