Note that, this year, in addition to asking readers to estimate the years/dollars each free agent is likely to receive, FanGraphs is also requesting that readers make note of how much they’d pay each free agent were they, themselves, actual GMs.

Another buy low/sell high candidate for the Cubs to pursue. He has a much better track record in terms of results than Hughes. Health is a different issue. I could see 3/33 or 4/44.
