So..  Main reason they can actually spend some money in other areas... 

THEY FINALLY HAVE SOME CHEAP HIGH QUALITY HOME GROWN PITCHING THEY CAN SAVE MONEY ON...

Dear future owners...  Don't forget this very basic lesson.

Don’t forget that they’ve also traded Seminaris, Junk, Peguero, Stallings, Bradish, Hidalgo, Peek, Brnovich, Pinto and probably a few others in there too.

Drafting 20 pitchers doesn’t seem so crazy now. Great currency.

Good pickup. Between Renfroe and Urshela, that adds 4-5 wins to last season replacing zero win (or worse) players/injury subs. 

So, where now? Is that it? I wouldn't be devastated if this was it, but I hope we can still bring in a real shortstop to shift Fletcher/Rengifo to a utility role (still playing most days somewhere or other), especially if they somehow can afford one of the top four. Not sure where we are at catcher: Are O'Hoppe or Thaiss ready to platoon with Stassi? If not, a backup catcher won't cost much. Would love to bring in another solid/high end starter or closers, but I'm assuming Minasian is nearing the limits of his budget. Either way, a solid floor-raising offseason. Anything after this is for the ceiling. 🤞

I think we'll see some kind of MI acquired.  @Stradling mentioned Nick Ahmed, who would seem to fit with Minasian's strategy of acquiring guys 1 year away from free agency.  Amed Rosario with the Guardians would fit that too, although it has been pointed out they probably won't trade him.

I feel like we'll sign some backup catcher.  Thaiss will be given a shot but he will probably be DFA'd since he can't be optioned.  

I think we'll see a few minor moves with relieves, but no big names.

I'd personally also like to see another OF acquired - a backup OF that will enable us to keep both Moniak and Adell in AAA.  I would prefer to think of them as guys we will call up if/when injuries occur, as opposed to starting the season with either of them on the roster.
