What would be the Phillies’ plan B if Aaron Nola decides to leave the team? The following are some possibilities for trading:

The failure of the Philadelphia Phillies to win the National League Championship Series (NLCS), which broke all of our hearts, means that we must begin thinking about the upcoming off-season a lot sooner than we had hoped.

And the most important choice the Phillies are going to make is with Aaron Nola and his future with the team.

He does not belong to any team. And if you believe what baseball insiders like Jayson Stark, Buster Olney, and others like them have said about it on our radios, he is going to make a lot of money.

A little earlier in the week, Stark shared with us that he doesn’t think he will be resigned by the Phillies.

However, this raises the question: who will they hire to take his place? The market for free agents, with the exception of Aaron Nola, is not that attractive.

There are not many high-quality Nola alternatives available on the open market, and if they don’t create a big sensation, they won’t be able to draw Yoshinubu Yamamoto leaving Japan.

That means they could have no choice except to resort to trading. The good news is the fact the market offers a variety of excellent choices to choose from.

Corbin Burnes was one of the names that he provided to us. However, he isn’t the only Ace-Level Pitcher who is going to be available for free agency in 2024.

The roster of starting players who will be available via free agency in the offseason following this one is significantly more impressive than the current crop.

And if you don’t see players trading throughout the offseason or around the trade deadline, it’s quite likely that it will happen during the final year of their contract.

It is possible that some of them players will be traded before the season starts, given that the majority of them play for teams from relatively minor markets.

To illustrate this point, the Yankees gave Carlos Rodón a contract worth $162 million over the course of six years, despite the fact that he has never pitched more than 170 innings during a single season.

It is not completely out of the question that one of the other teams in baseball may make a play for Nola, who has started more games (175) than any other pitcher in baseball since 2018.

The Phillies do not have a suitable successor within the organization. After having Tommy John elbow surgery, Andrew Painter is expected to miss all or the majority of the upcoming season.

Dombrowski has stated again that the team will not have a reliable starter for the big leagues by the start of the 2019 season, although expectations for such a player remain high.

This gets us to the trading market, where there are a few exciting alternatives waiting to be explored.

Watch out for the following three things: The Brewers have not finished a full season with a losing record since 2016, despite the fact that their market is relatively small and their payroll is only average.

Their strategy for maintaining a window of opportunity to compete for a championship consists of cutting ties with players before they leave via free agency and restocking the squad with cheaper players.

Assessing the market for a free agent deal for Aaron Nola by looking at comparable deals, the things that the Phillies bring to the table, and a well-known precedent Abel’s name was never brought up during trade discussions between the Phillies and other teams.

If that is still the case, would it be possible for them to construct a trade revolving around center field plus Johan Rojas and another pitching prospect (McGarry)?

And how sure are they that they will be able to sign Burnes to a long-term deal, especially considering the fact that Wheeler will also be due for free agency following the upcoming season?

By operating much like a pitching factory, the Guardians are able to remain competitive while having a relatively low salary.

The Philadelphia Phillies are revved and prepared to play as they tear into Red October. Nevertheless, are you prepared to watch?

If you haven’t been paying attention up to this point, the club and the game of baseball are both very different from what they were a year ago.

Therefore, think of this as your guide to cheating. We will tell you where to go, how to watch, and anything else you must do to catch up on what’s been happening, so that you can speak about the Phillies with the other fans at the bar without feeling embarrassed about your lack of knowledge.

Even though the Dodgers had a somewhat quiet offseason the year before, they were still able to continue their extraordinary run of success during the regular season.

However, following yet another dismal showing in the playoffs, it’s possible that they’ll be more proactive this winter.

There are a lot of different ways to accomplish this, but the key question becomes how well they will be able to sign the most interesting free agent in the history of the league.
