-St. Louis Cardinals-

If Scherzer becomes available near the deadline...

Nationals receive: Alex Reyes RHP, Elehuris Montero 3B (3), Dylan Carlson OF (6), Genesis Cabrera LHP (8), and Connor Jones RHP (16)

Cardinals receive: Max Scherzer RHP and Justin Miller RHP

This trade gives the Cardinals a new ace in Scherzer that they desperately need, along with another piece to add depth in their bullpen. Scherzer is clearly the main player in this deal and is someone that the Cardinals had interest in when he was a free agent. Not to mention, the guy is also from the St. Louis area.

For the Nationals, this trade provides them with plenty of high tier prospects as they look to rebuild, assuming that they don't make up ground in the NL East race. Reyes was the Cardinals #1 prospect for 4 years until he recently lost his prospect status. There are also several other guys who could become quality starters like several other Cardinal prospects have ended up becoming for teams (Randal Grichuk, Tommy Pham, Aledmys Diaz).

Here is a trade that almost certainly won't happen, but what are your thoughts on this possibility? Is it fair? Could it actually happen?

Braves-Nationals blockbuster:

Braves get:
- Max Scherzer
- Anthony Rendon

Nationals get:
- Ozzie Albies
- Christian Pache (Braves no.1)
- Kyle Wright (Braves no.2)
- Sean Newcomb
- Bryse Wilson (Braves no.7)

Why it works for Atlanta:

We have seen that the Braves have what it takes to get to the postseason, but not to have a deep run into October. Max Scherzer is a front-line ace with almost 3 years left of team control. Although he is 2-5, his team hasn't exactly helped him. His 3.26 ERA is BLOATED by 1 poor start against Miami. Him, Max Fried, and Julio Teheran would be arguably the best trio of starters in the NL. The Nationals have no business wasting the twilight of someone the caliber of Max Scherzer. PITCHING WINS IN OCTOBER.

Anthony Rendon has been absolutely RAKING. Him and Nolan Arenado are the NL's 2 best 3B's. He features an incredible eye, power, speed, and an energy to the clubhouse that make him a great addition. His defensive versatility means he can replace Albies at second, just with more offensive impact. He is a FA at the end of the season, but the Braves have an opportunity to create the best team in baseball if they can upgrade with an all-time-great starter (YES MAX SCHERZER IS AN ALL TIME GREAT), and the NL's most underrated player.

Why it works for Washington:

Ozzie Albies has been a significant part of the Braves success, and is under team control for the next 7 years after signing an extension. This and his youth (22 y/0) skyrockets his value and really makes him an attractive centerpiece, as he secures the Nationals future offensive along with Juan Soto and Victor Robles. Kyle Wright is the Braves top pitching prospect, and Sean Newcomb has been very effecient at the big league level. He has 4 years of team control left. The Nationals lack of young talent (other than Soto and Robles) mean they need a bolster to their farm system and this is a perfect opportunity to capitalize on their superstars.

SD- Trevor Bauer
CLE- Luis Patino, Ryan Weathers & Josh Naylor

Bauer has a year and a half left on his contract. He is perfect for SD who can let him go if his price is too high after his contract. SD has a ton of arms in the minors who will be ready by 2020/2021. He also gives them a Bonafide Ace for a playoff push this year.

SD- Zach Wheeler
NYM- Cal Quantril

Wheeler gives SD a very solid #3 who is a FA at the end of the year. He is a place holder for Gore who will be up in 2020 and a he gives them a 3rd pitcher for a playoff series.

C Francisco Mejia
1B Eric Hosmer
2B Luis Urias (call up)
3B Manny Machado
SS Fernando Tatis Jr
LF Will Myers
CF Franmil Reyes
RF Hunter Renfroe

SP Trevor Bauer
SP Chris Paddack
SP Zach Wheeler
SP Matt Strahm
SP Joey Lucchesi

That is a ton that the Padres would be giving up to a guy that is due for his last arbitration year and a pay increase. You're getting rid of 2 of the best arms that they have coming up in 2020/ 2021 like you alluded to. Patino from what i've heard is close to off limits. Weathers and Naylor could be had though.

The wheeler deal would be perfect for them.

CHC receives: Alex Gordon OF

KC receives: Mark Zagunis OF, Cole Roeder OF, Richard Gallardo RHP

Schwarber experiment should be over in Chicago. His defense has improved overall but his lack of offense and continued struggles leads to the Cubs striking a deal for a hot hitting gold glover. KC sheds that contract and at age 35 the price will never be higher on Gordon.

The Yankees get an elite 3B and don't give up a single good prospect. How convenient.

Except Schmidt and Showers are good prospects. I didn't say any of these would be the final offers.

14 May 2019 20:39:26
Let's ask it this way, if the Nationals offered WIl Crowe and Tanner Rainey for Miguel Andujar, would you hope the Yankees accept?

Because those two are almost identical in prospect rating to Schmidt and Stowers.

Detroit Tigers Trade:
Matthew Boyd

Philadelphia Phillies Trade:
Scott Kingery
Nick Williams
Connor Seabold

Been seeing a lot of trade talks with Boyd going to Philly don't want him to be traded as a Tigers fan. He has been a lone bright spot in our team. But if he is traded I think the Phillies would be a good spot because he doesn't have to be the ace.

Preller ought to lose his job immediately if he made that trade for Marcus Stroman.

Agree3 Disagree5

03 Apr 2019 23:20:48
I do believe Stroman will get traded this July, and I do think his trade value will be going up. I know it's early, but it looks like he's back on track and over a couple nagging injuries. Of course, he could very well get hurt again but who knows.

The 3 prospects in the proposal are 8th and 20th ranked in Padres farm system and the outfielder playing with the big club.

I think stroman is worth a couple prospects in the later top 100 range. And they wouldn't settle for anything else.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Apr 2019 16:32:14
TheStatbook i 100% agree.

Agree1 Disagree1

04 Apr 2019 16:35:39
@minnow75 Yes i agree that his stock is increasing. However, both of those prospects are or would be ranked higher in toronto system. Baez is ranked 57 overall on mlb which would place him 3rd on toronto's system. Reyes is also under team control for awhile, 23 years old. Hit 280 with 16 homers in limited time in petco. i wouldn't say this is far off in a trade for a guy in a contract season.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Apr 2019 18:39:28
Stroman can become a free agent after 2020, not this year.

Agree0 Disagree1

06 Apr 2019 21:08:41
It seems Stroman is one of those guys who's name recognition is better than his talent. And I don't think there's many teams, if any, who would give up top-shelf talent for him.

Go read the outlooks for him. The most optimistic outlook has him at "maybe a top 100 pitcher again". You don't trade really good, controllable talent for a "maybe top 100 pitcher".

Agree2 Disagree3

21 May 2019 17:29:54
looking at this now, this would be an over pay by the padres. reyes would be their best hitter not named vlad right now.
