What purpose do either serve? Thames to maybe win us a couple extra games this year? He's going to be in his mid-30s with a year left on his contract by the time we're looking to compete again.
Feliz, same thing. Decent reliever. Only have him for one year which kills his trade value. So what's the point?
It seems that either Mark is telling Stearns to sign some of these veteran guys so the team doesn't lose 100 games, which isn't good or Stearns is doing this himself and not really into rebuilding which also isn't good.
If they're good enough to affect draft positioning, which you seem to believe, they obviously have value in trade.
You're not making any sense.
What value in trade? Jesus Christ. Nobody is paying a ton for 20 innings of Feliz. Nobody is giving up a ton for a 31 year old 1B/LF who spent years in the KBO when they had an opportunity to just offer a few million more than us to sign him outright.
