Ottobot Ep 40: Buying, Selling Memorial Day Edition

Bitchin Cordero gives up...

Player NameSalary
Hector Santiago SEA SP/RP L  $1
Pedro Baez HOU RP R 60IL $1
Bryce Harper PHI OF L  $71
James McCann NYM C/1B R  $1
Has $1 free, will have $1 free

Kluber scares me right now, at least as the foundational piece in a Harper trade. His velocity started trending down last fall, and is still 1.5 mph lower than usual. If Sale is too much, and Kluber picks up his velocity in the next couple starts we can try again. Right now, Harper is carrying my team, so I am not eager to part with him.

Cousin Larry gives up...

Player NameSalary
Hunter Pence FA OF R $16
Wade Davis KCR RP R $19
Chris Sale BOS SP L 60IL  $43
Trevor Story COL SS R  $3
Outgoing Loan $7
Has $0 free, will have $0 free

Well, this is quite the package. Giving you salary is not at all something I should be doing in this, on top of all the talent, but I see you have no cap wiggle room either. I should probably hold out to keep Sale, or at least not take back guys I might cut and absorb cap hits, but this isn't really about making the best decision. It's about fixing the mistake I made in the draft in the first place and not paying whatever I had to land the best hitter on the planet whom I also watch 4 days a wee
