The Giants aren't spending nearly 150M on aging outfielders.

I don't see Moustakas to the Sox. They have Devers over at third, and have Holt and Nunez who they seem to be plenty happy with as backup and spot starters. If they're going to spend on the infield, it's likely to be at 2nd with LeMahieu or maybe even Murphy, or at 1st, but I think they'll be happy with bringing Pierce back to platoon with Moreland.

As far as the pen, I'd be fine with paying Kimbrel to come back, but everything I've heard has them moving on. I would like to see them bring back Eovaldi though. He's been fantastic for them.

I can't truly see Harper to the Dodgers and Machado to the Phillies. Both are possible, but the Dodgers already have a huge payroll. They need to focus on signing Kershaw, like you have posted. I think the Giants are sort of rebuilding and are going to sign any big free agents, especially one with a big injury history.

I can't see Donaldson going to Anaheim, nor can I see Moustakas going to Boston. Also is Lemahieu really worth 20 million a year? No chance Britton goes back to Baltimore. If Price opts out, it surely won't be back to Toronto, he would certainly go to a Contender.

Giants will add pieces. Maybe one outfielder, certainly not two. And I think they'll explore a trade for a younger guy or write a blank check to Bryce Harper.

I do agree that the Dodgers probably shouldn't be going after Harper. They've got money, but they should be spreading that out. If they think Seager can come back as solid as he was before, they are pretty good in the lineup. An upgrade at catcher might be something for them to look into. They should be looking at starting pitching though, especially if they're going to be thinking about letting Kershaw walk.
