Explain the toughest calls if necessary:
Contract options (pick up or buy out)
- Matt Albers: goodbye
Impending free agents (re-sign, let go or qualifying offer)
- Austin Jackson: Made $5 million in 2016. - no
- Alex Avila: Made $2.5 million in 2016. - no
- Justin Morneau: if reasonable yes
No ian desmond he will make Melky look like a gold glover.
My goal with most of my free agents is to buy low and hope they rebound and trade them Obviously all these will noy happen but I will give it my best shot
No. 1 :AJ Pierzinski (2 years, $5M). First year he will help the pitchers 2nd year he will help Collins.
No. 2 : Norge Ruiz (5 years 35 million?????). Top international pitcher available
No. 3: Asdrubal Cabrera (2 years, 12M). To play second base
No. 4 : Doug Fister (1 years, $5M). Let Cooper fix him and trade at trade deadline
No. 5 : Carlos Beltran (1 years, $8M). DH him for half of year then trade him
