a bit much...this might be good for us...their OF prospects more expendable?

True, also gives Cody Ross one less option. So we can benefit in 2 ways.

Jackie Bradley is their best OF prospect and I think #2 overall behind their SS prospect. They also have Brentz who is in the top 70 something I think.

I have a feeling as more guys keep signing with other teams, we will keep rationalizing how it somehow helps us. I wish I had your optimism, but I can see it now:

"His jersey ended in an odd number anyway"
"Too many syllables in his name"
"Now we can spend more on improving the Shake Shack"
"Sandy is being shrewd, his agent isn't nice"

that intriguing. Redsox are very active to get back into that competitive AL east. Dickey would make alot of sense for them.

I take Myers over Bradley and whoever they want to add anyway.

Bradley is one of those prospects that has a good chance to pan out but also might struggle. Hasn't played higher than AA and is 22 years old.

Myers is one of those can't miss guy. We wouldn't have to worry about RF for years

Seems like too much to spend for him.

Everyone is stupid. We are the only smart team and all our fourth place finishes is a shining example of how our wait and see approach is doing wonders. Everyone is just overpriced. Those are teams are too dumb to realize that. All those playoff appearences? Bahhhhh

Why does everyone think that the Royals are interested in Dickey?

because they were confirmed as one of the 8 teams interested.

True. Don't see them giving up Myers. They were probably offering someone like butler as the centerpiece.

we'll see what happens. If they miss out on other SP on their radar they may get desperate.

Yeah but in the position that they're in, I could see them more focused on a guy like niese - controllable, young and cheap

This proves that people need to wake up and see the realities of the FA market: Shane Victorino, who had an abysmal second half and mediocre career stats, just made 13 million a year.

Let that sink in, everyone. Suddenly the Pagan signing seems like a steal.
