@JFK03 @capnsparrow  @jml2279 How is it arrogant, it's saying I will give you money to wait 5 months.  If someone offered you 10% more pay 5 months from now wouldn't you consider it?

I wonder what the price would have needed to be to get him to wait until July

@just Paul  @jml2279 A trade of a SP is possible, but the signing of Beachy seems to be a non-factor.

@just Paul  @jml2279 Yeah, but health timelines don't generally get sped up by three months.  Very different fact sets.

The Beachy timetable in no way makes sense for a trade of a front-line starter.   Zaidi says he expects Beachy to be ready around the All-Star Break.  You don't trade to make a 4 man rotation.  Beachy seems to be insurance for the inevitable pitcher injury.

@Purple Drank I think a key difference between Bills and Beachy is that Bills (when he was signed) seemed to be on a time table to be ready around opening day and as such could demand a starter spot.  Beachy isn't in the same position.  He should be ready around the all-star break, and so no team can guarantee him a spot.

@DodgerDodger @jml2279 There are other ways to correct for imbalances in teams accounts.  Drafts primarily serve as a way of depressing wages by removing bargaining power from labor.

@DodgerDodger no, just abolish the draft and allow the market to determine how teams sign players.

My concern is that he's drawing such a high O-Swing because the scouting report is telling batters to swing away because he's not a very good pitcher.

Do you think the fact that they want to clear out League means that they don't believe that his second half numbers are for real?  The guy induces a lot of ground balls and that should play a lot better with our new defense up the middle.

@Technogit I think Kemp is in SD because advanced metrics hate him on defense and we don't have a DH spot.  I'm actually surprised there wasn't more interest from AL clubs.

@InsideThePark (10 Games) I feel like it depends on both scores.  If Kershaw is getting knocked around, obviously he comes out.  If Shelby Miller gets knocked around he also probably comes out around 5-6.  If it's a 0-0 or 1-1 tie I think he stays in a long time.

Any chance we trade a struggling overpaid outfielder for a struggling overpaid reliever?  I'm just spitballing here, but I feel like every year there's a bad salary trade or two in the hopes that a new venue will breathe life into a guy struggling.
