My insides hope every single year that Frankie will come out of retirement so I can have my eye candy.

Still waiting for Bronson to go somewhere. Figure he should have some good offers by now.

Expecting Stephen Drew and Nelson Cruz to go somewhere soon. No one take Kendrys yet?

Arroyo is firmly stuck in a holding pattern thanks to Masahiro Tanaka's posting process being held up for so long. The entire pitching market as such has been up in the air because of that, and also because guys like Santana and Jimenez were given qualifying offers, and they're probably not worth the deals that they desperately want on the open market.

Drew and Cruz have likewise seen their markets dwindle because of their respective qualifying offers. Drew is indeed probably going to get a deal soon, and maybe he'll even come back to the Red Sox. In the case of Cruz, though, unless the Mariners bite, I'm not sure what's going to happen or how long it might take for him to land somewhere. I just can't see a team being dumb enough to piss away a first round pick to get Nelson fucking Cruz. Kendrys Morales is in an even worse pickle because he was given a QO, which might be the most controversial QO so far under this qualifying offer system, and he's nowhere near worth it. Kendrys definitely falls in the Kyle Lohse category of qualified FA from last year, where he might not land anywhere until Spring Training is just about over, lol.

Meanwhile, I'm starting to think David Price isn't even going to get traded this winter. Nobody is going to give the Rays the equivalent of Myers-for-Shields because nobody who has a Myers-type prospect is as dumb as Dayton Moore was last year, and frankly there probably isn't a Myers-type prospect on any team at the moment who'd be in that trade market for Price (don't get me wrong, plenty of nice-looking position player prospects exist, but none of the nearly-ready-for-MLB caliber among probable Price landing spots). I'm beginning to believe Tampa Bay will hold on to Price, see how they do this upcoming year and maybe deal him at the deadline if it's just not their year or perhaps give it another shot next winter.

Note: watch for David Price to finally get traded in 5, 4, 3, 2...

Shit, I didn't think of Tanaka's effect. That's a good point. Forgot about Jimenez too, he came on strong at the end of the year.

Didn't even think of QOs for these guys. Wouldn't mind Drew back in Boston, but primarily as a bench player. Agreed on the Cruz situation. Not worth it at all. What does Kendrys offer look like?

As for Price, I think he ends up staying the year, or at least starts off in Tampa.

At this point, I wouldn't be surprised in the least if Arroyo simply ends up back on the Reds. It might even be on a one-year deal--if I were Arroyo, I'd consider it because next offseason is going to feature one of the weakest free agent classes in modern MLB history, especially true of the starting pitching market if the Tigers and Dodgers lock up Scherzer and Kershaw, respectively, beforehand. The Reds probably want to give an extension of their own to Homer Bailey, meanwhile. Arroyo could go back to the bandbox in Cincinnati and put together another very decent season, and play the market next year. If he and his agent had knocked down their price, I'm sure a San Francisco or a Minnesota or the Angels or somebody would have bitten, especially since there was no QO attached to him.

All of the QOs are the same, and this year they were locked in at 1 year/$14.1 million. The qualifying offer is a one-year offer that is the average of the top 125 salaries in MLB; last offseason, it was $13.3 million, and this offseason, it's $14.1 million.

I think Morales will get a one-year, $15 million-ish deal from somebody around Spring Training time or so. Maybe two years at roughly that AAV.
