This was a tough day for mid-grade outfielders. All these guys were non-tendered:

David Dahl 
Adam Duvall 
Eddie Rosario 
Kyle Schwarber
Albert Almora
Delino DeShields 
Brian Goodwin 
Scott Heineman 
Erick Mejia 
Bubba Starling 
Ben Gamel
Nomar Mazara
Tyler Naquin 
Jose Martinez

These are added to a pool that already had Jorge Bonifacio, Jarrod Dyson, Adam Eaton, Brett Gardner, Matt Joyce, Nick Markakis, Cameron Maybin, Josh Reddick, Hunter Renfroe, and Steve Sousa.

$709.2M in guarantees handed out in three off-seasons. There's stupid money, and then there's the Philadelphia Phillies. They never properly concluded their rebuild, tried to rush it with free agency and trades. Think they'd like JP Crawford, Jorge Alfaro, and Sixto Sanchez back now?

This is exactly what several people pushed for the Braves to do. They wanted the Braves to send stupid money without a plan to get better. But Coppy and now AA have done a wonderful job with the rebuild and now we've got 3 straight division titles and 1 win away from the World Series to show for it with the best yet to come.

This deal makes little sense for the Reds. I know they're cutting costs, but that PTBNL better be good.

Pure salary dump. Reds GM said he was just looking for an arm he could use in the bullpen in 2021 and money to help the roster elsewhere.

Nice haul for the Rangers for 1 year of Lynn.

Given that Lynn's only earning $8 million a year, less than what we're paying for Smyly, I like the deal a lot more for them during a time of economic uncertainty.

I'm reminded of when Philly traded J.A. Happ and another player for Roy Oswalt. Dunning looks like a moderate rotation guy who turns 26 in a few days. Sure, there's risk, but Lynn would/should have gotten a lot more at the trade deadline. They screwed up by waiting.
