Hi all,

With WMS officially being eliminated last night, it’s time to start the Hot Stove fires.

First the easy part.
WMS releases: LAN Barney, SF Arias, TEX Tepesch, LAA Iannetta, TOR Thole

Now the trade flier part:

Here’s what we need:
Full time 1B
2/3 time catcher
2 full time SP
Possible LF upgrade

Here’s what’s readily available:
SEA Trumbo - 1 game short of being a full time 1B, grrrr… .760 OPS, 22 HR
KC Morales - SH, .841 OPS, may keep him if Crawford gets dealt
SF Crawford - Gold glove SS, .772 OPS in SF with 21 HRs, should be a nice boost from park effect
CHA Cabrera - .711 OPS, Full time LF, may move as part of an upgrade.
WAS Werth - Hurt most of the season, struggled early but started to heat up last. Still slated to start next year for WAS
OAK Griffin - Will be UC16, DL all year and all last year, but was showing promise before he got hurt
CHN Turner - Another UC16, young prospect pitcher who ran into some bumps, but is still a prospect.

As always picks can go both ways, but I highly doubt I’m going to be moving my 1st rounder.
