    The key is Trout having a full no trade clause. He would have to approve any trade. Ohtani only has 1 year of club control, but offsets 8 years of Trout at $37M+. It's about $330M worth of salary relief for a club for sale.

    And this would jump start a rebuild with quality low cost players making it attractive for a buyer.

    It appears the only Super 2 player we have is Dubon. Does that make him a non-tender candidate?

    Services time 2.162
    Super 2 2.128

    I believe he is traded or non tendered and would be with or without Super 2 status.

    I hope I don't have to see Correa in a Dodgers or Yankees uniform.

    OK. This is a possible scenario:

    JV accepts his player option for $25M and then signs a Contract for 3-120 for years 2024, 2025 and 2026 and a player option for $25M for 2027. This helps this year's AAV because the new contract does not roll back to this year. It gives JV a realistic opportunity at 300 wins and an option to return if he needs just a few more. He retires an Astro.

    Sort of works well with One year of Ohtani in 2023 to go with Trout for 8 years.

    Not sure if I like that...no matter what Verlander will be 40 yrs old. Already pushing it if he signs till 2025, don't know if Astros want to go to 2027.

    probably a negligible consideration. he wouldn't get a big bump in salary in arb anyway. they could probably reach an agreement in the 750-850k range before it gets to arb.

    Offer JV player options for 35 million in 2024 and 2025 if he opts into 2023.

    Abreau for 3 years 50 mil with the last year being team option. Re-Sign Yuli. Mancini leaves.

    Trade Leon+Urquidy for Happ.

    There's zero chance Verlander or the club is locking in 4 more years, much less at $36.25m in AAV.

    If Crane believes that 6 years is the most he's willing to go for a mid 20's position player, 4 years for a early 40's pitcher at TOR money ain't happening.

    Excellent news akin to a statement of confidence in a losing coach.

    Just trying to drive up the price.

    I think it’s more related to being able to sell the team.

    The best way to drive up his trade price is to put him on the market and get every team openly bidding for him.

    No way the Angels trade him without getting a marketable star in return. I suspect for the Astros, the price would start at Javier.
