Are we sure of that? After the Drew/Morales saga, is a guy who's "only" made $23M in his career going to turn down $14M guaranteed?
Why is Hammel going to get that when Ervin Santana couldn't?
Hammel should be flipped like Feldman was last year
Not that I havr amything more than intuition to support this, but Szhjallmerson seems like someone who could have an unlikely run of brilliance at an older age.
If the Royals' pitching staff falters I could see the Royals making a move for Hammel and the Indians would be in much better shape with Hammel in their rotation right now.
The future in now-2018 for the Pirates. Guys that are 3+ years away are expendable.
For Castro having four 3 hit games in less than 2 weeks will do wonders for your line. Heading into that stretch his line was .267/.311/.430 in 55 games. Definitely an improvement over last year but you definitely wouldn't call it righting the ship for a guy who is supposed to be your starting SS for the rest of the decade. More like he stopped sinking than anything else. Starlin will obviously not continure .365 batting average with a 1.065 OPS the rest of the way so there are still some solid question marks about him going forward this season. Plus his defense hasn't improved any from last year and at some point you have to decide who is going to make the move to second. One of your prospects or the guy at the ML level.
i don't even think pittsburgh regard alvarez as a star. he's just too flawed a player. and he's clearly not getting better
