Oh, I know that. Even though Valencia is a more strategic piece than Dyson when you have a Bonifacio available, they were never going to walk way from him.

There are all kinds of lightning fast guys who can play a mediocre CF and be a pinch-run weapon but not really hit in baseball. And they're cheap and easily acquired.

From USATODAY.COM from about 20 minutes ago…

Story is where they think Stephen Drew, Nelson Cruz and Ervin Santana will sign –

http://ftw.usatoday.com/2014/02/nels...b-free-agents/

Quote:
Nelson Cruz – Baltimore Orioles

The Orioles just signed Ubaldo Jimenez, so they’ve already given up their first-round pick for the June draft. And with Chris Davis, Nick Markakis, J.J. Hardy and Matt Wieters approaching free agency, the Orioles should work to contend in the next couple of seasons.

Bringing on the slugging Cruz would mean fewer at-bats for DH Nolan Reimold, who struggled heftily in 2013, and outfielder David Lough, a useful player but not one capable of Cruz’s offensive production. Plus he would provide a hedge in case Markakis struggles as he did in 2013, and keeps the club from having to use Delmon Young in any capacity.

Quote:
Stephen Drew – New York Mets

Drew and the Mets have been linked in rumor throughout the offseason, but the Mets keep downplaying the possibility they’ll actually sign him. After Matt Harvey’s elbow injury, the club appears unlikely to transition from rebuilding to contending in 2014. But the Mets’ stable of young arms other than Harvey mean they can reasonably hope to compete in 2015.

Adding Drew would give the team a good defender and solid hitter that’s supposedly open to playing multiple infield positions. Though his reported demand for an opt-out after Year 1 of any deal does not make sense for the Mets, bringing him in on a two- or three-year deal they find palatable would give them some flexibility and another steady hand in an infield that currently features question marks at shortstop and first base. And since the club’s first-round pick is protected and second-rounder went to sign Curtis Granderson, the Mets would only need part with a third-round pick to add Drew.
Quote:
Ervin Santana: Chicago White Sox

OK, this one seems like a long shot, since most seemed to agree the White Sox were done with big-ticket purchases after the signing of Cuban defector Jose Abreu to a 6-year, $68 million deal. But the Sox’ first-round pick in 2014 — the third overall — is protected, and GM Rick Hahn quietly had what looks like a very good offseason.

Crazy as it might sound for a team that finished 63-99 in 2013, adding Santana would shore up a Sox rotation that includes young ace Chris Sale, unheralded but very good 25-year-old lefty Jose Quintana, and Erik Johnson, a 24-year-old righty who made five successful big-league starts in 2013 after a minor league campaign that saw him go 12-3 with a 1.96 ERA across Double- and Triple-A.

In the past seven months, the Sox have added four very promising young position players in Abreu, Adam Eaton, Matt Davidson and Avisail Garcia. Bringing in a solid starter like Ervin Santana could make them an unlikely Wild Card contender despite their 2013 finish.

Meh, seeing an AL central team sign Santana would be a roll of the dice. He is either a big piece toward hurting the Royals, or he is a money pit that goes back to his 5 ERA and costs them a chunk for a few years.

4 Royals in the top 100:

Quote:
23. Kyle Zimmer:
In flashes, Zimmer was as good as any pitching prospect in the minors last year, his first full season after being the fifth overall pick in 2012. Now he has to show more than flashes.

26. Yordano Ventura:
The majors’ hardest-throwing starter has proven he can handle a minor league workload, but the smallish Ventura has to show he can do it over 162 games.

47. Raul Mondesi:
The toolsy teen is starting this season at the same age as most high school draftees. Mondesi’s production should climb as his body matures and his experience grows.

90. Jorge Bonafacio:
He can’t be Wil Myers, but a healthy, productive start—and maybe a bit more loft in his swing—will put Bonifacio on track to providing a reasonable facsimile.

Saw this on mlbtraderumors.com this morning.

Quote:
Oregon State left-hander Ben Wetzler was indefinitely suspended by the NCAA for inappropriate contact with a financial advisor after he was drafted in the fifth round by the Phillies last June, and Baseball America's Aaron Fitt reports (all Twitter links) that it was the Phils themselves who turned Wetzler in to the NCAA. The club also tried to report sixth-round pick Jason Monda, but Monda was cleared by the NCAA to continue playing for Washington State. Wetzler and Monda, both college juniors, turned to school rather than sign with the Phillies, and Fitt notes that it is "a significant departure from [the] industry norm" for teams to report on their unsigned players.
Scumbags in Philly.

Complete bullsh%t. And can the NCAA be a bigger joke? So sick of hearing about ridiculous stuff like this while they laugh with tons of $$$ in the bank.

On the other hand, good luck to Philly in getting any youngsters to believe and trust you again. Hopefully it bites them in the ass for awhile.

Overall, nice to see us back in the top 10 after graduating so many 2 and 3 years ago. Latin America has been good to us
