Not just that blockbuster with the Miami Marlins earlier in the offseason certainly getting -- Dickey to front that pitching set and throw a knuckleballer. -- -- -- -- -- -- They need to hit Dickey because -- reliable -- 200 innings I and the other guys they got from -- mark early and Josh Johnson. They're little and how it there's -- I think you're going to -- reliability was so important. Jason spent so many years developing that farm system and how they used that farm system to acquire a lot of these players -- it's. Make a huge impact. At the top of the lineup. I want you to keep an -- and Emilio Bonifacio. Is a very valuable aren't they got a -- treatment the Marlins are if you listen to keep the Marlins last year when he went down and got injured. That's their troubles start about a possible since the the unsung hero that straight. -- you and I on those days on the flip side which has had the most disappointing offseason. Oh Joseph here we are -- 2013 we've we've seen the -- -- New York City were still waiting tech Raiders to make their big move so many possibilities for him earlier in the offseason. He tried Zack Greinke went to the Dodgers. And try to keep Josh Hamilton. You went to the rival Angels were still waiting for the Rangers to make that big splash early in the last athletes I think it is nice piece. Want to. They -- more. So probably -- I'm starting pitchers well some regression your column last season I'm not sure they can trust let's Delgado in the rotation either so. Big up in the starter as well they haven't beaten to gel has been a question not on the right and quite yet but. Jon Daniels who is excellent general managers now running out of time. Certainly get up off season so far and Texas all right finally do you think any more big moves before spring training begins in February. I do let's start with John problem Stanton who are to me it is is one of the most elite power hitters in the game. I'm very long times reported this week that the Mariners and Marlins -- some talks about John Carlson and possibly going to Seattle so -- -- where I also expect. The Texas Rangers -- Jones talked about. The Rangers this really can all Stanton and into instead and that would change the conversation. Talk about they're a little bit about that boarding -- seasons also free agents still out there tomorrow is still looks like at nationals. Is a strong possibility I don't know the Scott Boras says there was. Carlos Michael or rock and -- screen impact guys still -- I do -- -- could end up going to Texas Rangers. If they don't get extension that and still right now doesn't want certainly there that market is Carlos. Yeah tremendous fit in Milwaukee Brewers they -- still collects division rival Cardinals so I want to keep an NL central there. I'd say -- thanks to the inside and don't forget keep it logged on the foxsports.com. For all your baseball needs for John Palmer -- -- -- and we'll see in next time.
