    Why not sit and wait to see how far the market drops on Drew? A great field/no hit SS playing next to Sano is not a bad deal for a team expected to compete, but not contend next season. I would be curious to know, if we would take Trea Turner if he is available.

    I don't understand why the need to earn meaningless poster Fantasy GM bonus points by recommending that available monies for upgrading our favorite team instead end up in the Executive Bonus Pool at the end of each season.

    I'm in agreement here. I think they can sign Garza now and join in on the waiting game with Boras on the Drew situation. They might be able to poach him from the Sox and only have to commit to a one or two year deal with a slight overpay. Boras has gone with one-year deals in the past, sign him and then let him walk after Boras rejects a QO. You end up with an extra pick in the low-30s one year removed- instead of at 43 as it now stands.

    I'm curious to see what Escobar can bring to the table. In AAA last year he hit .307/.380/.500 (.880) in 188 PA as a 24 year old. These numbers are far better than the AAA numbers Drew put up as a 23 year old. (Drew's were posted in the PCL, considered a hitters league.)

    Escobar went on to return to the Twins and hit .324/.343/.412 (.755). While he did that in only 36 PA (SSS) it still looks like he may have turned a corner.

    I just don't believe we've heard all we might hear from Eduardo. He may be a low cost, excellent solution going forward. Possibly a better hitting Greg Gagne.
    I'm on a whiskey diet. I've lost 3 days already.
