Maybe that's enough money for some people.

Yeah I don't get when people say things like this. 223 million dollars. The guy and his family are set for LIFE. Get it out of the way and done and focus on baseball. I would strongly prefer this approach if I was in the same situation.

Orioles listening to offers for John Means………that would have to be a haul, and how many systems could afford it?  I’m thinking Seattle, Tampa Bay and the Dodgers.  

I really don't think Means is THAT valuable.

That's ridiculous. He's really cheap (575K) with three years of Arb ahead of him. Unless they're thinking the new labor agreement is gonna wipe out the Arb years?
Would love the Yankees to be on this - but doubt they will (or that BALT would trade him to us). Bottom line - if they move him, I just hope he ends up out of the ALEast.

I would assume it's more of the "make us an offer we can't say no to" kind of demands.  Baltimore isn't going anywhere anytime soon, and he just posted a 5 WAR season.

Giants bring back their rotation. 

As weird as it is, I think I would have brought back one, but not both. I feel like if you're just trying to run it back with a team that waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay over achieved, you're going to get very disappointed. 

DeSclafani had the better year, but I'm not convinced that he has the better stuff all the time. Given that he has longer term and is older, think I would have let him go to market and re-signed Wood
