AAOP: Buy Low Sell High

I did not have time to complete this by the deadline but I wanted to submit something anyway just to get feedback. The main goal for this year is to continue to build (be relevant until September) and be ready for 2015 when Harvey and Syndergaard are ready to join the rotation. I used MLB trade rumors for assumptions on most of the free Agent Salaries and assessing other team needs. For some of the FA salaries I compared to similar players from previous years.

Free Agent Signings:

Young, Chris (OF): 2/$13 Million

Hernandez, Roberto: 1/$5 Million

Maholm, Paul: 2/$14 Million

Molina, Jose: 1/$2 Million

Marmol, Carlos: 1/$2 Million plus incentives

Morse, Mike: 1/$3 Million plus incentives

Hawkins, Latroy: 1/$2 Million



Parnell, d'Arnaud, Montero and Mazzoni


Evis Andrus

Why: Texas needs a catcher and bullpen help; they could also add a right handed pitcher. This will also free up cash for them to resign Nelson Cruz and pursue another Free Agent bat. For the Mets they add a "core" player with a proven track record.


Dillon Gee


Chris Iannetta and Mid-Level prospect

Why: The Angels need pitching are reportedly looking to move one of their catchers. Iannetta is a solid backstop and provides a bridge until Plawecki is ready.


Lucas Duda, Daniel Murphy


Alex Colome, Enny Romero and Tim Beckham

Why: Rays will be losing a James Loney to free agency; Duda is under team control and cheap. Murphy give the Rays flexibility to trade Escobar or move Zobrist to the OF. Player could change a little. Mets need to target at least 2 solid pitchers from Rays farm system.
