Am I your bitch? But ok, one moment...

Trading pitching for pitching doesn't make any sense to me.

Assuming they sign Springer, I have to imagine that would take them out of the Bauer sweepstakes, as that will add over 40mil to their payroll.

Not really. 

The more salaries they acquire in the first 5 years the more they can then depreciate after year 6..   Arte did this. The Dodgers did this.  The Padres have been doing this.   It saves/makes them money to spend now.

Mets getting Carrasco too. Takes them out on Bauer I imagine.

New owner.  Deep pockets.  Wouldn't be surprising if he spent.  Cot's showing $146 before this trade.  Carrasco is $12 million, and who knows for Lindor.  According to Cot's CBT is $210 million.  So they got room.

Lindor will probably get 20-22mil.  Carrasco + Lindor will be about 34mil added.  If they sign Springer to 20mil+ .. I mean, they could add Bauer, but they'd already be at 200mil prior to adding Bauer.
