There you have it! Our 2018 Off-Season Plan! Did you make it to the end? Lets put a bow on our plan with one final overview.

Added/kept ($$$ in 2018) Loss($$$ in 2018)
Jarrod Dyson ( 6.5) Mark Rzepczynski (+2)
Jaime Garcia (8) Max Povse(.555)
Jake McGee (8.5) Dan Altavilla (.555)
Jake Odorizzi (6.5) Erasmo Ramirez(+4.5)
Noel Cuevas (.555) Luis Liberato(Minor league)
Zack Granite (.555) Anthony Jiminez (ML)
Carlos Santana (16)
Drew Smyly (1.5)
Hisashi Iwakuma(ML)
Rene Rivera (2.5)

The plan adds roughly $42.5 million to the payroll. It leaves a starting rotation of:

  1. James Paxton
  2. Felix Hernandez
  3. Mike Leake
  4. Jaime Garcia
  5. Jake Odorizzi

The lineup would look something like

  1. Jean Segura
  2. Carlos Santana
  3. Robinson Cano
  4. Nelson Cruz
  5. Kyle Seager
  6. Mitch Haniger
  7. Mike Zunino
  8. Ben Gamel
  9. Jarrod Dyson

That is not to shabby if you ask me. The bench would include some combination of Guillermo Heredia, Noel Cuevas, Zack Granite, Rene Rivera, Andrew Romine, Taylor Motter,and Zack Vincej.

Next: Jay Bruce... Seriously?

So what do you guys think? How would you have spent the money? Gone big on Yu Darvish or Lorenzo Cain? Traded Kyle Seager? Give us your thoughts in the comments below or on Twitter. Just remember the only thing we all know for sure is that nobody knows anything. So lets all sit back, relax and enjoy the 2018 Hot Stove Season!
