    Trade rumors vs reality ...

    So one of the stories floating around on Trade Rumors is that of the Rockies possibly offering Naps over $39m for three yeaers.


    If you're a team with a total payroll well south of $100,000, how does it make sense that you'd make this kind of investment for someone like Napoli? It would be a huge chunk of your payroll, and he still has the same health questionmarks as previously identified.

    Think you're right on both counts.  Too much money for a mid-market team, and three years is a risk.

    An annual salary of $13 million is less than the average annual salary for baseball's 125 top-paid players last year and the average annual salaries are expected to jump with the influx of new television revenues.

    MLB Trade Rumors projected a three-year, $42 million contract for Mike Napoli. The Colorado Rockies have about $62 million committed to 2014 salaries, but have maintained payrolls above $80 million in recent years (even before the windfall of new television revenues).

    The WAR conversion had Napoli valued at $19.5 million in 2014:

    I think Colorado's payroll is more than $100,000!

    The Royals will sign Beltran with any luck, a bit of nostalgia.

    speaking of trade rumors... i read on MLBTR that the M's are making a bid for Kemp. i hope they land him. that would take a player off the board for Ellsburys services.

    I hope they get both and then the M's improve to a .530+ team. Better for baseball.

    Marlon Byrd signs a two-year, $16 million with the Phillies

    http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/9965361/marlon-byrd-agrees-two-year-deal-philadelphia-phillies

    Are the Phillies going to get the player who hit .291 with 24 homers and 88 RBIs in 2013 or the player who hit .210 with one homer in 47 games and then served a 50-game suspension for testing positive for tamoxifen in 2012?

    I think this is a horrible signing.  Signing Pat Burrell or Bobby Abreau would have been a better choice.   LOL  Tongue Out

    they just got out of Heltons contract, so they have what it takes to sign him: some money and a need for a 1st baseman

    Reality is rarely part of the process at this time of the year, fantasy is more likely the word of the day. Napoli is a player who wants to win, Colorado is several pitchers away from being good. Probably not a match!

    I found this spot-on commentary about media coverage of the Hot Stove:

    Must be $100 million...not $100,000!

    No doubt that Napoli has earned the right to look at all possible offers, but I doubt that he looks at Colorado as much of an option for himself unless he wants to finish third or fourth in the NL west and not have a spot in which to DH for the last part of a three year contract.
