Your trade has some merit. The free agent signings? Not so much, especially Walker. That would mean Brad Miller, Matt Duffy, Hechavarria and Willy Adames all vying for playing time and the starting SS job. I don't think they traded Moore and prospects to put Duffy and Adeiny on the pine.

Also, you left Alex Cobb and Matt Andriese out of the team's plans.

Cobb is a free agent this winter.

Sox aren't trading Abreu anytime soon. Especially not for a headliner of De Leon.

Forgot that about Cobb. Dude will make big coin this winter.

No worries. It'll be interesting to see what these middle rotation arms make. I'm guessing around 13-18M a year.

Cobb is good enough that he would be a No. 1 SP on some teams, and the No. 2 SP on many. He will be at the high end of that spectrum.

I think we'll have to disagree on that. He doesn't have the peripherals to control front line starter money. Maybe for someone like Milwaukee or Kansas City.

I am going to agree with thestatbook on this. I don't see Cobb getting the top end of starter money. He is good enough to be a number 1 on a bad team like the Marlins or even the Phillies. A good team like the Dodgers, probably 4 or 5. I think no more than 15 million a year for Cobb.
