Pirates acquire: Jeremy Hellickson and Jenmar Gomez

Phillies acqiure: Mitch Keller, Harold Ramirez, Elias Diaz.

I like it. However, switch Keller with maybe Clay Holmes or Stephen Tarpley.

Agree0 Disagree2

27 Jul 2016 16:49:19
Hking, you do realize that with Keller included, this is already a somewhat weak package?

This is an overpayer's market. Every seller is licking their chops at the returns coming back in trades.

A couple of Jay Bruce options :

Astros : Jay Bruce
Reds : Teoscar Hernandez and Joe Musgrove

Orioles : Jay Bruce
Reds : Chance Sisco and DJ Stewart

Rangers : Jay Bruce and Anthony DeSclafani
Reds : Dillon Tate and Jurickson Profar

Dodgers : Jay Bruce and Anthony DeSclafani
Reds : Grant Holmes, Alex Verdugo, and Cody Bellinger.

Reds would be dumb to take any deal that's not the one from the Dodgers, if these were their options.

The Dodgers' package is significantly better than all others.

Pirates acquire: Chris Archer

Rays acquire: Tyler Glasnow, Harold Ramirez, Trevor Williams.

27 Jul 2016 16:27:39
Would the Pirates ever do this deal? No.

Is it fair? Completely.

Agree0 Disagree2

27 Jul 2016 16:50:50
Rays have said they have to be blown away to move Archer. In what way would this blow them away?

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 17:29:47
Add Jeff Locke and either Elias Diaz or Alen Hanson and I think that what the rays want but as a pirates fan I really hope they don't do it.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 15:54:20
Instead of trading for Chris Sale, Rangers should trade for a different pitcher from the white sox

White Sox: Luke Jackson and Travis Demeritte

Texas: James Shields and $.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

27 Jul 2016 16:52:25
If the White Sox are going to move cash in the deal, the Rangers will need to give up more. Jackson has already been relegated to the bullpen in the minors, which really hurts his value.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 14:56:44
Cardinals Get: Brandon Phillips, $8m

Phillies Get: 3B Patrick Wisdom.

Believable0 Unbelievable5

27 Jul 2016 15:12:02
Phillips has to accept any trade. He declined going to Washington earlier this year, and from all accounts I've heard, he loves Cincinnati and doesn't want to leave.

Plus, he'd never go to St. Louis.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 15:24:55
Sooooo many things wrong with this.
1) Phillips plays for the REDS, not the Phillies.
2) Phillies have Franco at 3B and wouldn't need P. Wisdom
3) Wisdom hasn't ISO above .105 since moving above A ball

I could go on, but will end there.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 16:39:46
If Phillips didn't want to go to Washington, he surely will not want to go St. Louis.

Mets deadline moves

NYM- Jonathon Lucroy, Jeremy Jeffries
MIL- Zach Wheeler, Travis d'Arnaud, Brandon Nimmo, and Wilmer Flores

The Mets offered d'Arnaud for Lucroy SU and if i were MIL i would have hung up and never answered again. Once the Mets realize they need to add prospects, they will send a real offer. MIL wanted Flores and Wheeler for Gomez last year. They get them now along with Nimmo and d'Arnaud for another of their bats.

NYM- Rich Hill
OAK- Dominic Smith and Gabriel Ynoa

The Mets are in a tough spot. They have an abundance of pitching, but they're hurt. Harvey will miss the season and the Mets need a starter for the rest of the way. Hill is on a 1 year deal and could easily step for this season (and potentially re-sign) . This would give the Mets the team to compete the rest of the way.

3B- Jose Reyes
RF- Curtis Granderson
LF- Yoenis Cespedes
1B- Lucas Duda (Loney until he's back)
C- Jonathon Lucroy
LF- Michael Conforto
2B- Neil Walker
SS- Asdrubal Cabrera

SP- Noah Syndergaard
SP- Jacob deGrom
SP- Steven Matz
SP- Rich Hill
SP- Bartolo Colon

LH- Antonio Bastardo
LH- Jeremy Blevins
MR- Logan Verrett
MR- Hansel Robles
MR- Jeremy Jeffries
SU- Addison Reed
CL- Jenrys Familia.

Bryce, your offer from the Cardinals seems really light, IMO. The Pale Hose would demand Alex Reyes in the deal, along with other top prospects and perhaps either Grichuk or Piscotty.

Not close to enough for Lucroy. Mets need to include Dom or Stearns won't pull the trigger. period.

Sale to Boston

Benintendi, Owens, Devers and Brentz to White Sox

White Sox is really wanting Benintendi

Opinions please.

Believable1 Unbelievable13

27 Jul 2016 05:30:31
No, this trade is not coming soon.

This would not net Sale. Not even close. Moncada + 4 of the Red Sox next 5 prospects.

Teams don't trade established Aces for a minimal return.

Agree6 Disagree2

27 Jul 2016 12:54:08
I think it might.

Agree1 Disagree3

27 Jul 2016 13:22:43
THe fact you think it might work Red Sox Guy shows how biased you are. Moncada would have to be involved as well a few others. This is nowhere near enough.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 15:14:29
Whichever team trades for Chris Sale will lose their top 4-5 prospects. Boston will for sure say goodbye to Moncada as well as some others.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 04:08:09
Here's two trades that could happen.
Pirates Acquire

The Next trade
Rangers Acquire

White Sox's Acquire

Thoughts on these two trades I thought up.

Cws sale robertson.

Believable1 Unbelievable5

26 Jul 2016 23:57:56
Jays don't have the prospects to bring in Sale. It would take Major Leaguers like Sanchez, Stroman, Osuna, Travis, and Pillar and it still might not be enough.

Agree2 Disagree2

27 Jul 2016 00:05:24
U better quickly throw stroman in there before you really get ripped for this. This is a tough crowd bud.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 00:47:42
I would trade stroman if I can get sale.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 01:58:16
That's not even remotely close to what it would take for sale. Terrible.

Agree3 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 03:03:47
Jays, that bunch of miscreants won't fetch Sale.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 13:52:59
Alford is a star in the making it was my 1st post just tried but look up Alford he has 1 full year committedto baseball and it was so good it put him in top 50 mlb prospects.

matt shoemaker for dodgers package. spacing got messed up.

Agree0 Disagree3

26 Jul 2016 20:36:14
I'm sure the Giants would love to get rid of Crick for Escobar. I doubt anyone in the Angels FO would go for it.

Dodgers won't make that trade for Shoemaker.

Santiago isn't worth 5 minor leaguers, maybe 1 or 2.

Drew Stubbs is a CF for the Rangers. I think you meant Garrett Stubbs.

Agree3 Disagree1

26 Jul 2016 21:44:58
I like the blue Jay trade maybe jays add another prospect.

Indians Get: Andrew Miller, Hector Santiago.

Yankees Get: Mike Trout.

Angels Get: Bradley Zimmer, Clint Frazier, Gleyber Torres, Jorge Mateo, Gary Sanchez, Billy McKinney.

Indians get an elite closing pitcher.

Yankees get the best player in the MLB for essentially Chapman, Miller, Mateo and Sanchez.

Angels get a boatload of prospects.

Don't think it enough for the angels for the 2nd best player in mlb

1 harper
2 trout.

Trout is the best player In the league. And it's not really that close.

Agree5 Disagree1

26 Jul 2016 19:22:05
your dreaming if you think harper is better. Worse at defense, hitting, and running. Trout has higher baseball IQ and smarter at the plate then Harper.

White Sox. They want Mazara, and rightly so.

Giving 3-4 mid-level prospects doesn't make up for leaving Mazara out.

Texas: Chris Sale.

Agree3 Disagree5

26 Jul 2016 15:55:11
BOS- Chris Sale
CWS- Yoan Moncada, Andrew Benintendi, Michael Kopech, Blake Swihart, and Eduardo Rodriguez

If the Yankees got 4 players for a CP, the White Sox will get kings ransom for Sale (if they trade him) . This trade would benefit both. This is the return i would expect if Sale is traded.

Believable8 Unbelievable7

26 Jul 2016 17:18:58
What the Yankees got for Chapman will have absolutely no bearing on what the White Sox will get for Sale.

Two different markets entirely.

Agree6 Disagree8

26 Jul 2016 15:47:11
Jays got their outfielder, their team is pretty set. I feel 1 more bullpen arm could help out because i feel Aaron Sanchez will stay in the rotation

Blue Jays get
Sean Doolittle

Athletics get
Brady Dragmire
Dwight Smith Jr.

Believable1 Unbelievable5

26 Jul 2016 16:10:25
The A's would want more for Doolittle. Those two guys wouldn't bring Toronto much of anything.

Agree0 Disagree1

26 Jul 2016 19:29:03
How much more do u feel? Doolittle hasn't done much in the last 2 years due to injury, i don't feel his value is much.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 20:00:02
Dragmire is a 23 year old minor league reliever. Minor League relievers already have ridiculously low value, but then when you consider he doesn't strike guys out and he has a high BB/ 9 rate, he's certainly not going to bring anyone back.

Smith, Jr. is alright, but he's certainly not very attractive as a prospect, either.

Doolittle, when healthy, will have a lot of value. He's controlled through 2020 and has a ridiculously cheap contract. The A's will want a pretty decent package for him.

From the Blue Jays, think Reid-Foley and probably one other major piece.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 21:37:09
That much for Doolittle? i'd rather pass and hope Cecil figures it out. Reid Foley in my mind is an untouchable because the Jays don't have the prospects to get an A pitcher so i wouldn't waste him for a B or C pitcher.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 23:01:29
The Athletics likely wouldn't accept a package featuring Reid-Foley as it would get outbid by many teams.

In fairness, with how small of a window the Blue Jays have to be competitive, no prospect should be untouchable.

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Jul 2016 00:03:01
I disagree on that one, i think the Jays have a good sized window to be a very good team. The Jays are more than likely losing Bautista and EE but they still employ Donaldson, Tulowitzki, Martin, Upton, Pillar, and Travis. A big part of them being competitive is their pitching and they will still have their rotation together minus RA Dickey. Who knows? Maybe Stroman figures it out next year and it creates a deep rotation. Maybe Pompey steps in and becomes the outfielder he projects to be. Their window i feel isn't closing because they have a good mix of younger players and vets.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 02:00:06
Their window is this year. Maybe next.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 02:16:53
Martin has shown serious wear. Tulowitzki is not the same player he once was, probably never will be. If they don't resign Bautista or Encarnacion, they lose significant performance in the middle of their lineup.

They also don't have organizational depth that is near MLB ready. Most of their better prospects are years away still.

I think they will still be a good team, but their best bet is to try and win it all this year. Making any prospect untouchable when that window is small would be ill-advised.

Agree0 Disagree1
