Red Sox Get:

Nicholas Castellanos
Justin Wilson

Tigers Get:

Rafael Devers
Bryan Mata

I know Boston absolutely does not want to trade Devers but hear me out on this one. Boston not only lost out on acquiring Frazier and Robertson but they lost them to the Yankees, putting them in an extremely tough spot in the AL East postseason picture. Not only are they desperate for help at the hot corner and have shown interest in adding another stud in the bullpen but both have an extra year of control beyond this season, making them more than rentals. DD also drafted and brought Castellanos to the big leagues with the Tigers.

For this reason the Sox can afford to take a risk and move Devers and Mata (a lottery ticket pitching prospect who is years away) in order to bolster their team this year and next year with younger more controllable top talent and keep up with the moves in NY.

Out of your mind.

If we are giving up Devers then we better be getting Fullmer back end of story. I am guessing you are a Cubs fan because of your name but something also tells me that you are a Tigers fan as well because of your profile picture.

Dombrowski would not be so drunk as to offer that.

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Jul 2017 15:21:40
Do I think the Red Sox would do it? No.
Is it as bad as you all are suggesting? Also no.

Castellanos still has 3 more years of team control and isn't a slouch at the plate. Rafael Devers has 21 PAs above the AA level. Dombrowski would be just as foolish to build his entire future around a kid who hasn't any more than 5 games above AA and refuse to make moves.

Don't be surprised if the Red Sox make a move at 3B that holds Devers back for a while.

Pirates are still in the hunt and if they take any trade with the Tigers. It would be Prospects for Verlander and others.

you do realize not everyone the White Sox have will bring a top 30 prospect back in return right.

Agree2 Disagree1

20 Jul 2017 10:53:51
Plus Davidson is the guy that is replacing Frazier. They aren't going around trading everyone, they are just trading the old guys. Davidson isn't going anywhere.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Jul 2017 13:41:44
I thought Moncada was the guy replacing Frazier.

20 Jul 2017 17:53:18
White sox have another 3B in the minor that is hitting well. So they'll bring him up. And your saying 25+ homeruns a season and control for multiple year isn't valuable. Really Batman?

Pirates: Jed Lowrie
Athletics: Tony Watson.

Pirates want more than a rental for Watson.

Agree3 Disagree2

19 Jul 2017 16:35:02
I would rather have Watson than lowrie too, but lowrie does have a team option next year, so he's not exactly a rental.

Agree5 Disagree0

19 Jul 2017 20:24:42
You're right, Lowrie does have an option.

That said, the Pirates would want prospects back was the point I figured most would understand.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Jul 2017 03:50:11
I wouldn't say that, they got an MLB player (plus a low prospect) for melancon last year, and the pirates are certainly still in the hunt.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2017 04:27:54
They got a player with 5+ years of control for Melancon.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2017 12:14:00
You want more examples? Walker for niese, niese for bastardo, Wilson for cervelli, mcgehee for qualls, liriano for hutch, the list goes on. Watson isn't worth that much, his FIP is in the high 4s, he isn't fooling anyone. And the pirates are one have under .500 and are 4 games out of the division. If they make trades, it will likely be someone who is gone this offseason (Watson), for someone who can contribute now, and will be around beyond this year.

Agree1 Disagree2

20 Jul 2017 15:33:17
Niese and Bastard were both horrendous when they were traded. The idea was that perhaps both would go back to their old teams and succeed, neither did. McGehee was awful. And Cervelli for Wilson, wasn't a rental for rental. Cervelli had only 4 years service time when traded, Wilson had 1. The Walker-Niese trade was in the offseason, and the expectation was that they'd get a full year of a cheap SP. Niese was horrible, so they moved on.

With Watson, teams don't have many other LH options unless they want to pony up for Wilson or Hand. Watson presents a decent 7th or 8th inning option. Look at his numbers in save situations vs. non-save situations. Teams will see those and get pretty excited. The Pirates can and likely will get more future value for Watson.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2017 17:13:33
As I said previously, I would rather have Watson than lowrie, I'm not saying lowrie is their guy, but my point is that I don't believe they will trade him for prospects, as you said they would.

Agree0 Disagree0

3B Yandy Diaz
LHP Ryan Merritt

Astros get: Cozart

Reds get: Daz Cameron

It was just reported that Correa will be out 6-8 weeks with a thumb injury so they will need to go out and find a fill in option if they want to stay atop the AL standings, plus Cameron is blocked by guys like Fisher and Tucker and a few other guys in the Astros system.

The Reds have been looking to trade Cozart for a while and he is in the middle of the best season of his career so they should look to trade him now because his value will probably never be higher. And adding Cameron to your farm system which is already one of the better systems is a great return for Cozart.

What do you guys think?

Believable4 Unbelievable13

18 Jul 2017 22:14:54
I think Houston will keep Cameron and use Marwin and Bregman at SS, with Gurriel seeing more time at 3B.

If they make a deal, a guy such as Nunez from San Fran, who can play many positions like Marwin, makes some sense.

Agree8 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 23:09:27
Astros are in the same boat as the Nationals. Both teams have sizable leads in their respective divisions and have bigger issues to deal with than shortstop. Both teams will make do with what they have there and upgrade positions of bigger need.

Agree4 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 23:28:05
Wouldn't be surprised if they go with guys like Erick Aybar for depth. Would cost them nearly nothing in return.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Jul 2017 02:16:40
They are up like 16 games. I don't think they'll panick.

Yankees- Athletics trade:

Yankees get: Alonso, Grey

A's get: Justus Sheffield, Dustin Fowler, Tyler Wade, Tyler Austin

Yankees get the 1st baseman that they desperately need. Along with another starter which would be an upgrade over Pinada even if he was healthy to slide in behind Tanaka.

The Athletics continue their rebuild, they add a high upside pitching prospect, a high upside outfield prospect which they really need(even though he is currently injured) a middle infield prospect with potential and a MLB ready 1st/OF prospect in Austin.

What do you guys think?

Believable4 Unbelievable15

18 Jul 2017 20:55:57
Frazier or Torres would have to go the other way ++.

With Gray in the deal, I agree with minnow.
