Patience grasshopper.

No one has spent $$$$$ besides the Nats on Corbin.

Phils will end up signing either Machado or Harper (maybe both), a stud closer, and a solid starting pitcher (maybe two).

This isn't the NFL where all the top free agents are signed within days.

I hate interacting with both of you, but here's a thought. Machado seems out, because he wants to play short. Do you package the new shortstop, Hererra, Franco, Kingery and picks/prospects and go for Trout? Then you have Trout and Machado.

You don't let Segura get in the way of signing Machado. You sign Machado and then figure it out.

I doubt Cesar is the starting second baseman on Opening Day; I think he will be dealt. My thought is they move Segura to second and play Machado at short. Don't know what they will do at third. Keep Franco?

Not sure I see the angels doing that. My extremely hypo (and bullshit trade for Trout) this season is:

Herrera, Sixto, Medina, Bohm, Haseley and one of Segura/Franco/Kingery.

No way the Angels move trout for less than 2-3 elite level prospects. The phillies have two right now in Bohm (still very raw) and Sixto (troubling injury history but potential top 5 pitcher in baseball).

Giving them all that MLB talent does nothing. If the Phillies couldn't win with those guys, why would the Angels?

Edit: I could see De Los Santos sloting in for Medina. He's more MLB ready and the Phillies have about 8 pitchers for 2-3 spots in their rotation right now.

I wish they would, ive said this all year. Angels will never resign him so put a package together for Trout.
