Imagine bringing back Dansby Swanson. The money needs to be spend on pitching both rotation and bullpen. Interesting they checked in on Boegarts, Lawler should be MLB ready in a couple of years so unless the plan is to move Boegarts to another position when Lawler is ready.

Boegarts isn't a great defender so he can always DH. I would MUCH rather have Swanson.

Ahmed, his $10 million contract, and gold glove defense should be back next year.

Bringing in Bogaerts means either they are selling low on that or Bogaerts plays 3rd.

I would give anything outside of Carroll, Jones, and Walker for Murphy. He is an amazing defensive catcher with the second fastest time to his feet in the majors. He shuts down base runners.

If you want to cry, look at our payroll pre arbitration. $63 million and Bumgarner and Ahmed are basically half that.

I am REALLY glad we passed on an 11 year deal for a 30 year old infielder that already is a sub defender. Also, it is hilarious to see the Padres trying to outspend the Dodgers.

It's hilarious for D-Backs fans to criticize anything the Padres/Dodgers do. Their owners go all out to win, and we have Uncle Ken, just happy to be there.
