OOTP.  See what I did there?

 

Yeah, anyway...

 

I'll be as up front as I possibly can be: I'm looking for SP, and I'm looking for very good SP.  I'd rather not have to sign a free agent to accomplish that this offseason, as I think I'm a few steps away from that stage of my team's development.  

 

That being said, I have the prospects and young talent to put together a competitive and interesting offer for your excellent (and hopefully cost-controlled) SP.  

 

Other positions I'm looking to upgrade are 2B, RF, and RP.  

 

Here's what I've got available:

 

MLB Talent:

 

SP James Paxton

SP Jesus Torres - some scouts love him, some hate him.  Whatever your scout thinks, he's still available.

CL Phillippe Aumont - one of the best and cheapest elite RP in the game.  Signed for three more seasons (assuming he hits the third year vesting option) at an absurd $800k per.  Here's the deal: every time I've tried to shop him in the past, I get a bunch of "What do you need for Aumont?  I'm looking for a decent 6th inning RP".  If that's your game, you're not getting Aumont.  He's an elite RP, he's incredibly cost-controlled, and I don't need to move him...but I will if the price is right.  

2B Cory Spangenberg - 2B is another area I'd like to upgrade, but Spangenberg will probably due until Seda is ready.

3B Matt Carpenter - could be a good bench bat for a team further along in the competitive process than Oakland

SS Andres Yanez - maybe.

OF David Vargas - once a highly rated prospect in my system, has had some recent developmental hiccups. I still believe.

OF Stephen Brown - maybe.

OF David Dahl

 

Prospects:

 

Just ask about anyone.  At this point, the only one I'm really averse to moving is Hunter Johnson

Update: Brown and Rod Cunningham have been dealt.  Got some SP help with Gray, but would like to add one or two more.  Everything above remains true.  2B would be a secondary target at this point, with RP and RF as distant third/fourth options.
