Anyway, am I the only one who has read this damn thing?
By the way, it's early this year. It was always after the WS was over before.
I mean the WS is over, essentially, anyway.
I read it and found it thoroughly enjoyable to the point of starting a thread with my own blue print. I would love to see other blue prints as the ones I read I felt were weak (just my opinion but I think more can be done)
I hope eventually John gives us a blue print as well.
Okay ... late to the party as usual ... just ordered and downloaded it ... didn't order it last year ... wow! Will enjoy reading this when work lets up! Tomorrow.
I read it and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thought it was funny you listed the agent for the top tier Free Agents (don't remember that from last year)--but I imagine that means a lot to some people.
Definitely enjoyed Seth's breakdown of potential 40 Man roster additions (especially know it's the reason I'm posting this on Page 8 of the Comments section).
Very surprised Seth's blueprint included trading Eddie Rosario for Homer Bailey. Bailey's a great pitcher, don't get me wrong, but is one year of him (in 2014, no less) worth Rosario? I know you required negotiating an extension, but I guess my reaction is, why not just wait until next offseason to target him as a FA? He'll probably cost you similar dollars as the extension would, and you don't have to sacrifice a prospect.
I've put together my own blueprint I'll likely share at some point--don't know what the best venue for that is.
Yeah I am going to work on a blueprint too. I want nothing to do with trading any legit top prospect this year. No way. I am really not interested in trading for a pitcher with one or more such prospect instead of just buying the same quality pitcher!
I don't mind trading a Rosario type prospect for an ace. I'd love a second half rotation of Bailey, Gibson, Meyer, etc., etc. It'd be encouraging.
On the other hand, there are several prospects (like Kepler and Harrison and a bunch of RPs ) who would be good trade bait.
I like Homer Bailey and I am for exploring some sort of trade scenario, but I am not interested in trading that level of prospect for a pitcher who isn't a markedly better pitcher than several on the damn free agent market who can just be signed.
You won't take my money. Paypal won't let me use a lebanon based credit card..... can't I pay without Paypal?
