    Eh. It's nice to get Donaldson, but for how many games? Nothing done to the rotation that includes Julio. The pen I feel decent about, would feel really good about Craig at a smaller contract (not realistic). Bmac can be a great veteran presents with Tflow. It's not terrible but also doesnt signal that we are about to win 15 straight.

    It's not a perfect offseason, but Donaldson, Realmuto, McCann, Markakis and a solid reliever would fill a lot of holes. Add roughly ~11 wins of talent in Donaldson, Realmuto and McCann, assuming health. Markakis coming back isn't ideal, but you've got depth and options with Camargo and Duvall if Markakis' second-half slide was the start of the downturn.

    Books are still clean, would still have prospect depth to go after a rotation upgrade at the deadline and still have plenty of young arms that can work out of the bullpen or in the rotation this year. That plus adding a top-tier 3B and an elite catcher would be a good offseason.

    Markakis is a hole that needed to be filled. Filling it with the same guy, doesn't fill it.

    I don't believe we're done, and I'm holding out hope that Nick isn't our third outfielder. At or closer to 2nd half Nick seems like the real Nick going forward, first half is a pipe dream.

    I don't necessarily disagree, but if Nick's a ~100 wRC+ bat on a one-year deal and you've upgraded at 3B and C with the ability to upgrade other positions at the deadline, I'm not going to get super upset that Nick is back.

    wouldn't be thrilled about Markakis returning but much less thrilled about doing nothing to add to the top half of the rotation.

    I agree, not thrilled about kakes we will see what happens. Folty is a perfect #2 starter as well, if we had a horse at the top and Mike can go in game 2 in a series that would be ideal.

    I’ll wait for Bill Shanks to confirm. No reason to deal in speculation until then.
