The most likely landing spots for the best remaining free agents

Free Agency is long over, but there are still a handful of serviceable players sitting at the bottom of the pile.  Sure, everyone great is gone, but a lot of teams are going to need to bring in players to help their playoff push. Here’s where I think the remaining unsigned free agents head.

Luke Hochevar- Nationals

The Nationals have the 27th best bullpen ERA in the MLB, and they are certainly the type of team that could use a solid setup man like Hochevar. Hochevar has a 3.78 ERA over his last two years over 88 innings. I don’t think he’s someone they want closing, as he has only 3 saves over 9 years in the majors, but he’s serviceable.

Jake Peavy- Mariners

The Mariners are running out of starters and Jake Peavy is a veteran starting pitcher who had a bad year last year, but that could easily be a fluke. The pitcher’s park will help Jake, who has pitched in two pitcher’s parks (San Diego and San Francisco) and two hitter’s parks (Boston and Chicago) and his numbers have been much better in the west.

Colby Lewis- Mets

Just like the Mariners, the Mets are running low on arms. Matz is hurt, Syndergaard is out for a while, and a Matt Harvey trade is imminent. Unfortunately, there’s no one intriguing in Las Vegas that they can call up, so I say they bring on Colby Lewis. Lewis is a solid starter who can help the Mets not completely fall out of contention during their injures.

Kelly Johnson- Rays

The Rays need a 2nd baseman, badly. Kelly Johnson is a veteran utility man who can fill that hole, as well as play some outfield in case of injury. His bat isn’t awful either. Over the last two years, he’s hit .256 with 24 homers and 81 RBIs in 612 AB.

Ryan Howard- Angels

CJ Cron and Luis Valbuena have both been huge disappointments, but Albert Pujols has had a great year. Howard and Pujols could switch off 1B and DH as Howard still has a decent power bat, hitting 25 homers last year in just 331 ABs. His .196 BA scares me, but he can still walk, so ,for that reason, I think the Angels give him a minor league contract.

  1. I was suggested this website by way of my cousin. I’m now not sure whether or not this put up is written via him as nobody else understand such exact approximately my trouble.
    You are amazing! Thank you!

  2. 葛西臨海公園展望台広場レストハウスという作品は正直知らなかった。谷口吉生の作品は今までに見たことがあるが、個人的にはとても綺麗な建物ばかりだという印象がある。しかし、その裏には、ディテールにまでとことんこだわる建築家の意地もあるのだろう。構造的視点からと言われても正直力学的なことはほとんどわからない。だから技術的な面でのコメントを書こうと思う。授業中に坂牛さんがこの建物に関しての技術的な面では賛否両論があると言っていたが、その理由が改めてわかった。この建物の施工に関しては、確かに現場泣かせの部分が多いと思う。僕は、親の職業上、中学の頃から溶接を教えられてきた。構造系の研究室はともかく、溶接は建築学生のほとんどが考えるよりはるかに難しいもので、鉄と鉄をただなぞればいいというもんじゃない。きれいに仕上げるためには、それこそ毎日溶接に携わったって何年もかかる。かつての木造の仕口とある近いものを感じるときもある。その溶接でこの建物ほどのクオリティーを求められるのは本当に大変だろうと思う。しかもFR鋼により、材の切り出しの時点から様々な障害が生じるというのだから、構造材を見せるというのは本当に大変だ。しかし、それがいいか悪いかといわれたら僕はいいことだと思う。溶接の技術で最も高いレベル・職人技と呼ばれるのは造船での溶接技術だと親父が言っていた。実際にその溶接を博物館でみたこともあるが、職人さんたちは本当に綺麗な仕上げをする。これから技術が進歩すれば、かつての木造の仕口同様に溶接も人がなす技ではなくなるのかもしれない。そんなときに、この時代でなされた溶接技術の軌跡が、造船などだけでなく、建築においてもみることができるすれば、それは価値のあることだと思う。
