@juanhenry the Padres would have to pay extra talent to make that happen. The Phillies are a rich team with tons of money, but little talent. This is the most effective way to buy talent.

@juanhenry If the Phillies are smart, they'll pay 80% of the contract.

@tsneddy (change is weird) @Mike Petriello @ngross32 you inferred, incorrectly, I was talking about you. You then turned to juvenile name calling. And yes, I am above the law. So, drop it or keep it up and see what happens.

@ngross32 because batting average

@tsneddy (change is weird) @DBrim @Mike Petriello walks matter. Extra base hits matter. That's just common sense.

@tsneddy (change is weird) @DBrim @Mike Petriello correct. Batting average is useless. Ignore it.

Kemp was not a "salary dump." Talent came back. Ethier, that will be a salary dump.

@DKD As opposed to the risk of Kemp not breaking in half during the first stiff breeze

@DKD why are you pretending offense is the only thing that matters? Why are you sounding like the exact same guys would repeat exactly the same performance?

@DBrim @DKD and the Dodgers get to take advantage of shitty outfielder defense more often now

@DKD and to be honest, I don't care about number of games won, really, as the only measuring tool. If they win 92 and still take the division by 6, that is not a step back to me.

@DKD it doesn't matter. It wasn't a choice of Rollins over Hanley. There was never going to be a scenario where Hanley was the shortstop in 2015

@DKD I also take issue with the presumption that Kemp was not sufficiently motivated before

@DKD Remember that Rollins isn't replacing Hanley so much as he is replacing no one.

@Disgruntled Goat it's just insane, really. For Ryu I suppose it's fair to note that I no longer include the posting fee, which was all up-front money, but still. It's such, such good value.

@InsideThePark Not so sure about that. 2016 only has $158m committed, but has no 2B, no 3B, maybe no Greinke -- and that's IF Seager can handle SS.

@InsideThePark I've just guessed that Kemp money is dispersed evenly per year, I'm not 100% certain on that.
