The one thing I really dont want to see them do is move ANY prospects. We just dont have enough, we are already fielding a team with too many high priced, older players and the simple fact is our minor league system is not very good and their are not alot of options coming soon. This was a strange rebuild, we rebuilt, cashed it in, created a fairly small window that this team might succeed in an are not sitting in the middle of that.
Bohm, Howard, Stott should be extremely off limits unless we trade for another prospect of equal value. I could see them moving on from Stott if they think his best position is 3B, but if he can handle SS or 2B than I dont see any reason to even consider moving one of these 3. We need the low cost WAR in the next 5 years, desperately.
Williams, Herrera, Quinn, myriad of relievers, failing starters (VV, Pivetta) are all in play. But none of them have any value at the moment, maybe during the season one will start performing and we can get something for them. The issue is do we put them on the ML roster and hope or stash them in AAA and really hope they can build something. Maybe we get something for one of them, but I wouldnt mind seeing VV and Pivetta in the bullpen, maybe they are good at that (VV showed some promise at times last year).
Segura is the guy that I think might be moved, but I dont agree with it. If they do want to stay under the cap, then he is really the only option if they still want a SP (need, really) or some bullpen help.
Moniak is another interesting idea. He might bring something, but I doubt very much. He is mostly redundant with Haseley, who has clearly passed him. If he starts to perform maybe one of them could be moved for a solid prospect.
Realmuto is another interesting thought, but once again, I wouldnt do it. Assuming he signs an extension than any discussion is over. But what if they can't come to terms, do we move on. I hope not.
We can have a wild card team this year with some good luck and a little 1st year manager surge. But frankly, we are not better than Atlanta and probably still not better than Washington. My guess is that we get exposed (again) as being an average team. But who knows, those teams can have problems too.
