    How all of TD could miss the most obvious and most important offseason move is beyond me.
    Pitching is nice, and a bat at 1st base would be ok. But...

    Why is no one asking how we're going to bring Butera back into the fold? Come on guys, pull your heads out of the sand.

    Great question. Logically it would seem like it could be up to the length of their current contract, but for logistical reasons it might only be 1 season + 1 offseason?

    Players To Be Named Later: MLB Rumors - MLBTradeRumors.com

    According to MLBTradeRumors, a PTBNL must be named within 6 months of the trade. They also cannot have spent any time in MLB between the time of the trade and being named.

    Also, oddly enough, the player to be named later often just keeps the same name after the trade as before. //ba dum tsh//

    So Stewart, and any other 2013 draftee, could be added as a PTBNL to any trade that occurs starting in January basically. Thanks for looking that up.

    Come on John, we'll have three aces locked up before Christmas, so no worries here.

    [QUOTE=YourHouseIsMyHouse;175773]I'll take my turn in the "blueprint" posts and suggest my own. Critique at your own whim, I'm open to all opinions.

    5. Trade 2B Eddie Rosario, SP Alex Meyer, SP Trevor May for SP Brandon Maurer and RP Charlie Furbush. (High risk trade for either team; value seems okay both ways to me at least)

    Wow. You do realize

    That is

    Denard Span
    Ben Revere
    and Eddie Rosario

    for Brandon Mauerer and Charlie Furbush?

    NO THANKS.

    Period.

    infinity.
