Josh johnson, lincecum, dickey, halladay, carpenter

Those last three are 35 years old +. Signing them would be a mistake.

Halladay may vest, dickey and johnson scare me as much as lincecum, and carpenter will be 38- basically - extend Zimmermann!!

Does anyone else really not get the all-out rush for Greinke? Not that he's not a "good" player, but there's talk that he might eclipse CC Sabathia's 7/$161 contract.

The two LA teams are flush with television contract money, free agent contracts are going to go sky high.

Halladay would have to pitch 250+ innings for his option to vest.

Dickeyis a knuckleballer so he should have another 5 or so years of quality performance.

Him and halladay are horses that would be great on two  or even three year deals

225 according to cots, and from 2007-2011, he did it every year

The nice thing is that we have some trade pieces if we need to trade for a starting pitcher in the season.

Comment From SeanP
What's your favorite signing/trade so far?

Dave Cameron: Span for Meyer. A steal for Washington.

Would I be wrong in saying LAC for letting Burnett get away?

:stir:

I know we have some in-house options.. but what gives?

$9.5MM guaranteed for 2 years, per MLBTR.  That's a lot for a middle reliever who is getting up there.

If you are referring to Burnett, he's only getting $8 million over 2 years and he's just 30 years old. 

I would have no problem giving him that.

David Schoenfield from ESPN is early to get on the Nats bandwagon. 

http://espn.go.com/blog/sweetspot/post/_/id/31272/2013-nationals-versus-1986-mets

http://espn.go.com/blog/sweetspot/post/_/id/31261/with-healthy-haren-nationals-could-win-100

Calls the Nats the WS favorites in the Mets comparison article.  Just being compared to a 108 win club is crazy considering where this team was a few years ago.

I'm guessing Rizzo thought he would want a lot more and probably didn't bother pursuing him.  He's a good value at 2/$8M

And with the franchise being 8 years old, I don't think you can define any "new" fan as a band-wagoner.

And sorry to see Burnett go. Let's hope Rizzo finds us a nice lefty replacement.

Jerry DiPoto didn't think Dan Haren was worth $13M.

Mike Rizzo didn't think Sean Burnett was worth $8M.

Mike Rizzo didn't think Sean Burnett was worth $8M.

Another similarity: health issues. Apparently Sean Burnett underwent surgery to have a bone spur removed, once he became a free agent this fall. Did not know that.
