MLB Rumors March 11 2014
10 Mar 2014 19:20:31
HERES AN IDEA:
SP JAMES PAXTON (SEA)
C JESUS MONTERO (SEA)
IF DEE GORDON (LAD)
OF ANDRE ETHIER (LAD)
SP (choice of 3 different prospects below)** (DET)
C BRYAN HOLADAY or RAMON CABRERA (DET)
IF DANNY WORTH or HERNAN PEREZ (DET)
RP CARSON KELLY (SEA)
OF MICHAEL SAUNDERS (SEA)
IF COREY SEAGER (LAD)
SP RICK PORCELLO (DET)
1B VICTOR MARTINEZ (DET)
** (PROSPECT #):
- DREW VERHAGEN (#13)
- ENDRYS BRICENO (#15)
- MELVIN MERCEDES (#16)
they get their LF who can hit and field better then dirks can and when dirks comes back, he can be traded (since davis is a better lock as a 4th OF) and they get gordon who can be the SS until iglesias is back healthy and both of them can be a good SS combo with iglesias as the majority starter (60% of the time) and they get montero to be the platoon with avila and brings 20+ homerun potential and paxton can be put in the rotation to add young lefty pitching if smyly can't do it (they compete for the 5th spot with the other in the bullpen or 6th SP)
they get rid of the OF jam with ethier going to the tigers and they also get their choice of 3 young SP from the tigers and a choice of worth or perez for 2B/SS/3B and they get saunders who can compete with pederson for the 4TH OF spot and they also get carson kelly from the mariners who is a talented young RP prospect
they get martinez who can play 1B/DH along with smoak (since morrison and hart would be in the OF and the other being a 4TH OF) and they get porcello would end up being the 3rd SP after hernandez and iwakuma since the other SP aren't ready enough to be the 3RD so porcello can fill in well until then and they also get kyle's brother corey so they can play together with corey being a SS (platoon with miller)
TIGERS THEN SIGN 2 FREE AGENTS AFTER THIS TRADE:
- SP ERVIN SANTANA
1 YEAR $10. 0 M
2014: $10. 0 M
2015: $15. 0 M (MUTUAL) ($2. 5 M BUYOUT)
2016: $20. 0 M (PLAYER) ($5. 0 M BUYOUT)
- 1B/DH KENDRYS MORALES
1 YEAR $15. 0 M
2014: $15. 0 M
2015: $15. 0 M (CLUB) ($2. 5 M BUYOUT)
2016: $20. 0 M (MUTUAL) ($5. 0 M BUYOUT)
(1) SP MAX SCHERZER
5 YEARS $110. 0 M
2015: $20. 0 M
2016: $21. 0 M
2017: $22. 0 M
2018: $23. 0 M
2019: $24. 0 M
2020: $25. 0 M (CLUB) ($10. 0 M BUYOUT)
(2) 1B/3B MIGUEL CABRERA
5 YEARS $140. 0 M
2016: $32. 0 M
2017: $30. 0 M
2018: $28. 0 M
2019: $26. 0 M
2020: $24. 0 M
this overall 5 year deal would be the largest deal ever (overall value) since a-rods record deal is a 10 year $275. 0 million (if cabreras deal is a 10 year based on the 5 year deal I have then it would be a 10 year $280 million deal)
then after this 5 year deal, I assume the next deal would be about 5 years $85 million when he is about 35 years old
SO OVERALL, THE TIGERS GET WHAT THEY NEED AND THEY KEEP SCHERZER INSTEAD OF TRADING HIM
C: AVILA / MONTERO
1B: CABRERA / MORALES
LF: ETHIER / DAVIS
DH: MORALES / CABRERA
C: MONTERO / AVILA
OF: DAVIS / ETHIER
SP5: SMYLY / PAXTON
LR1: PAXTON / SMYLY
LR2: COKE / CROSBY / ALVAREZ
MR2: KROL / REED / PUTKONEN
1) CF JACKSON
2) 2B KINSLER
3) 1B/DH CABRERA
4) DH/1B MORALES
5) RF HUNTER
6) 3B CASTELLANOS
7) LF ETHIER / DAVIS
8) C AVILA / MONTERO
9) SS IGLESIAS
Mariners don't trade Saunders
This not the nba, once a yr a mlb does multi team trade.
Okay, Tigers fan, take a chill pill. This is better than the proposal below, but still involves filling a hole or two, then signing a couple of free agents. The Tigers have money, but it's not unlimited.
The biggest problem I see is that you have Detroit trading their cleanup hitter. If they add Santana, I can understand that. If they trade a prospect for an OF who can move to RF next year if Hunter leaves, that's fine too.
I think, after the trades of Fister and Fielder, the Tigers are done with big moves.
This is an awful trade. Tigers win. Dodgers get parts they don't need and the Mariners get so little for giving up a lot.
10 Mar 2014 17:34:33
i wonder if the tigers should consider something
since iglesias may miss some time, sign stephen drew and when iglesias comes back, move drew to 3B and castellanos to LF
i know castellanos is more of a 3B but he didn't play bad at LF last year and drew is still out there, why not do it
they can look for a trade for a player like:
- j. schoop (BAL)
- d. gordon (LAD)
i would like either player and then when iglesias is set to return, then schoop or gordon would be a backup or spot starter
Dee gordon is likely the dodger's starter next year, until Guerrero gets seasoning in the minors
Iglesias could play 3B.
This makes more sense than the post above, IMO.
10 Mar 2014 14:04:55
2 low level prospects
Kendrick isn't that good. Ruf is ok, but not the answer at 3rd or them. If anyone goes to Philly on the Yankees its going to be Ichiro. He has no role on the Yankees and the Phillies need outfielders apparently. Phelps if traded it would be to like Seattle or perhaps Atlanta. Seattle has been scouting him. Nova will not be traded. He is needed in the Rotation. Plus the Yankees would be giving up to much in this.
Phillies come out with highway robbery
09 Mar 2014 21:45:48
its too late into the offseason/spring training to do a HUGE TRADE
TIGERS - ANGELS - CARDINALS
SP S. MILLER + RP J. MOTTE (STL)
IB A. PUJOLS + OF J. HAMILTON + $218. 0 M (LAA)
RP MINORS + 1B V. MARTINEZ + OF PROSPECT (DET)
IF D. DESCALSO (STL)
RP M. SAPPINGTON + IF MINORS (LAA)
SP M. SCHERZER + OF A. DIRKS (DET)
they get the power back in the lineup they need and protection for cabrera along with a better (homegrown) RP and a young SP that could replace scherzer in the rotation with moving sanchez up in the order and they would give up scherzer though and they would pay pujols and hamilton no more then $100 million
they get rid of the horrible contracts of both pujols and hamilton and that they would save $100. 0 million over the course of the contracts which is the most they could save if they do trade them and they get a cheaper 1B/DH in martinez that still can hit and wants to play the field more and would so more in LAA then he would with DET and they get rondon who could be a stud in the bullpen and they get a good OF prospect in collins and they get descalso too since he's expendable with them signing SS diaz
they get a homegrown star pitcher who would immediately be the ace of the staff which he wouldn't in DET as long as they have VERLANDER and he would get the extension with them that he would like and what the tigers may not afford to do and all they really do is give up motte, miller and descalso
1B: CABRERA / PUJOLS
DH: PUJOLS / CABRERA
4TH OF: DAVIS
1) CF JACKSON
2) 2B KINSLER
3) DH/1B PUJOLS
4) 1B/DH CABRERA
5) LF HAMILTON
6) RF HUNTER
7) 3B CASTELLANOS
8) C AVILA
9) SS IGLESIAS
THE LINEUP WOULD BE A MONSTER LINEUP AND 2 - 6 WOULD BE THE BEST 2 - 6 IN BASEBALL AND CABRERA WOULD HAVE PUJOL AHEAD OF HIM SINCE he's KNOWN TO GET ON BASE a lot AND HAMILTON WITH POWER CAPABILITY BEHIND HIM ON POTENTIAL GRAND SLAMS
they could go after a few SP in free agency
despaigne, santana or zito
santana would be a 1 year $10. 0 million with $15. 0 million club
zito would be a 1 year $5. 0 million with $10. 0 million club
despaigne would be a 4 year $20. 0 million with $5. 0 million club
I FEEL SMYLY COULD LAST BUT i'm NOT SURE IF HE CAN START 20+ GAMES AND STILL BE EFFECTIVE ENOUGH SO HE IS BEST SUITED FOR THE BULLPEN OR TRADE PORCELLO TO WHOMEVER
ZITO CAN HELP though ON A 1 YEAR DEAL
This is obviously a long-winded diatribe from a Tigers fan trying to justify why the rest of MLB should just hand his team the championship.
I literally laughed at this trade. Its that unrealistic and stupid on every end.
Sounds absolutely awful for the angels
Tyler Collins is only the worst
This is horrible
09 Mar 2014 19:49:13
Mets trade: SP Noah Syndergaard
SP Rafael Montero
Cardinals trade: SS Aledmys Diaz
St. Louis signs Cuban star SS Diaz 4yrs, $15 - $20 million range, while Mets are fast asleep as usual.
I don't think the Mets where ever in on Diaz.
What he means is, the mets yet again allow another SS go to another team as they sit with no real lock at SS
they need stephen drew and if they do get him then they better trade for one like dee gordon (he is set as a backup right now) or jj hardy (which will allow machado to go back to SS)
diaz in my mind could be similar to a stephen drew type. good hitter with some power and decent speed and fielding
The Mets have Tejada. They are all set at SS and don't need this Cuban guy. The lineup couldn't be better, with plans to stay close until Harvey gets back this summer and then win the AL East pulling away in September.
I think the Mets would sign Stephen Drew long before they would ever consider this.
If Cardinal fan want to put this idea ou their.
Dominic Smith Rafeal
Montero for Allen Craig
Castro, Didi, Drew are all opts to sign or trade for
Why the Mets did not consider signing Diaz is clear; the front office is lazy and not the brightest group in baseball.
The Mets are building for the future. They should not be trading prospects or giving away their top draft pick.
Mets are stuck using Tejada at SS until June. They can't possibly sign Drew at least until after the draft. Even then you can count on them to mess up a simple task.
Sad part is for Cuban new to this country where better he can be comfortable than NY or Miami to live and play ball in.
Read he actually got 8 million over 4 years.
09 Mar 2014 17:11:28
Marco Scutaro may not be ready for Opening Day, and the Giants don't have a good immediate replacement other than Joaquin Arias.
So I propose:
Giants get - 2B/SS Danny Espinosa
Nationals get - MiLB SP Martin Agosta (ETA 2015), MiLB SP Joan Gregorio (ETA 2016)
The Giants get a solid short-term replacement over Scutaro, and when he returns, a solid bench player to replace the injury prone Tony Abreu.
Good proposal. Nationals may want something else, but sensible.
09 Mar 2014 01:07:02
Yankees-Tigers-Brewers 3 way trade
Yankees get: Rickie Weeks, Khris Davis, Luke Putkonen, PTBNL from Brewers
Tigers get: Brett Gardner, Tyler Thornburg, PTBNL from Yankees
Brewers get: Zoilo Almonte, Luis Marte, Danny Worth, PTBNL from Tigers
Yankees need to stay away from Weeks, there are better, younger options for them at second. Also they just signed Gardner to an extension, they aren't going to be trading him.
I love it but gardner got a stupid contract
No way brewers trade Davis
Why does every team have a PTBNL?
I cannot imagine the Brewers dealing Khris Davis, much less for the weak package you have proposed.
I just want to point out that Gardner probably could have gotten a larger contract in free agency, since there really wasn't going to be a big free agent market for outfielders next off season.
So the brewers give up three major league talents for prospects no one has heard of? No way. Brewers will not trade Davis or Thornburg for that return.
No, Zoilo Almonte had time in the Majors last year and did well for a little while, but then tailed off. Worth has been in the big leagues before.
09 Mar 2014 00:45:16
SINCE DIRKS IS HURT AND THERE ain't MUCH IN THE FREE AGENT MARKET I WOULD LOOK AT (PIERRE IS ONLY ONE I WOULD CONSIDER) BUT A TRADE I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE IS:
OF I. SUZUKI
IF D. WORTH
the tigers get a much better platoon player to go with davis then dirks would and we all know that suzuki can still hit and field and steal. something dirks can't do and the yankees would need the most help in the infield then any of their positions (not including STARTING PITCHERS) but this is a trade that helps both teams in a low risk/high reward way
Terrible trade on both ends
Should of got cruz (
08 Mar 2014 22:49:30
Ok so ervin santana is close to signing with toronto however it has been reported an nl teams in talks with him, could it be the mets? if rhey can get him in onna two year deal and that can open up trading a niese/gee kind of guy for a power hitter? or to fill the shortstop/1b hole?
No stop being so optimistic
It was the Rockies and they are already out of it.
Wasnt saying it was them lol that would be a good idea tho. these are predictions. so if your going to hate don't waste your breath
08 Mar 2014 18:09:38
Here are a few potential outfield moves the Tigers should consider since Andy Dirks is out until June:
1. Tigers get: Alejandro De Aza
White Sox get: Luis Marte, Daniel Fields
2. Sign Juan Pierre
3. Tigers get: Anthony Gose
Blue Jays get: Daniel Fields, Luke Putkonen
4. Tigers get: Gregor Blanco
Giants get: Hernan Perez, Phil Coke, PTBNL
Tigers send INF Hernan Perez to Atlanta
Mariners trade 1B/OF Logan Morrison to Detroit
Braves pack a mid-tier pitching prospect to Seattle
How does the de Aza and the Gose trade help the other team?
Fields is a good player to keep and since he's from detroit, I doubt the tigers would do that even before he is in the majors for awhile
pierre would be good
I WOULD SAY THE BEST ON HERE IS THE PIERRE SIGNING
What about Moya he is ripping spring training I know he has not passed Hia ball but give him a shot
Possibly a little too much for Blanco, despite the Giants really liking him in the 4th outfielder role.
08 Mar 2014 15:41:45
-Santana wants a contract now and two leading team are Orioles and Jays but its rumored that for sure the Jays are favourites. Don't be surprised if Jays make a move following Santana to sure up second
-Jays sign Santana to a 1 year contract worth 14.1 millon dollars.
-The angels need some pitching and bullpen help while jays need a second baseman and have a few extra arms following the signing of Santana:
Tor: 2B Kendrick
Laa: SP Hutchinson, RP Cecil, 2B Goins, OF Sierra
*This team could be a surprise team and be near the top of the division or at worst grab that first or second wild card spot.
Too much for kendrick
I think the Angels may surprise this year and actually contend. In fact, the Twins and the Astros are the only two AL teams that I see as having no playoff shot; the other 13 teams could reasonably contend for at least a wild card berth.
A little steep for Kendrick and his
Seattle would probably deal Nick Franklin straight up for Moises Sierra; they would at least consider it.
As a Jays fan I prefer Sierra to Gose
08 Mar 2014 13:21:51
Rest of seattle offseason
The Mariners don't need Ichiro, and they sure don't need Phelps.
If the M's want to make a deal, then they need to trade for a right-handed hitting CF and/or a RH 1B. Guys such as Chris Denorfia in San Diego and Chris Carter in Houston make sense, and both play for young teams that would take young talent back in return.
Why would Seattle want to trade to Ichiro back? I don't think Morrison is on the trade list. They can just release Montero, I don't think anyone else one wants him. Santana is currently talking to the Blue Jays, Orioles, and Rockies about a one year deal.
Montero hit two homers and 3 RBIS vs josh beckett
Doesn't really prove a thing. He still a bum. Glad the Yankees dealt him now.
08 Mar 2014 07:51:02
Trevor Bauer to CHC and Mike Olt to CLE
I think the Cubs are hoping Olt mans 3B this year, and I believe the Indians are hoping Bauer can nail down a spot in the rotation.
Well, isn't it nice to want things?
What about KRIS BRYANT!
07 Mar 2014 22:13:55
Moves Yankees should consider:
Yankees get: Rickie Weeks
Brewers get: David Phelps, Corban Joseph
sign RHP Ervin Santana
Yankees get: Carter Capps
Marlins get: Preston Claiborne, PTBNL
1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
2. Derek Jeter, SS
3. Mark Teixeira, 1B
4. Brian McCann, C
5. Carlos Beltran, RF
6. Rickie Weeks, 2B
7. Kelly Johnson, 3B
8. Alfonso Soriano, DH
9. Brett Gardner, LF
1. CC Sabathia
2. Hiroki Kuroda
3. Masahiro Tanaka
4. Ivan Nova
5. Ervin Santana
SU: Matt Thornton
Closer: David Robertson
For the brewers sake, I hope Rickie weeks is traded
Plus ervin santana would be above ivan nova
Carter capps was traded for logan morrison
These aren't moves they should consider. These are ones they should stay away from. I wouldn't trade Phelps for Rickie Weeks. If they get a second baseman in a trade it will be a young one. Not a washed up one. They don't need Santana as they don't need another starter. And Capps was traded to the Marlins for Morrison. Matt Thorton isn't going to be the set up man. It will be Shawn Kelley. Thorton is the lefty specialist. Its a shame if your a yankee fan, most illogical moves they could make.
07 Mar 2014 21:36:04
RP MID LEVEL PROSECT
OF ANTHONY GOSE
SP RICK PORCELLO
IF DANNY WORTH
just read a rumor that the bluejays like porcello and that a deal could happen since the tigers need an OF now with dirks hurt and the bluejays needing a pitcher and porcello could be as high as a #3 pitcher for the bluejays and this is what each team should do
What would the Tigers then do to fill the hole in the rotation left by the departure of Porcello?
Soo that leaves Davis, Dirks, Kelly & Gose in left?
Dirks will be back in a couple of months. The Tigers will be fine in LF with Rajai Davis starting, and guys such as Don Kelly spot starting.
07 Mar 2014 18:02:23
Ike Davis Wilmer Flores Gavin Cecchini
Mark Teixeira A-Rod Cash
10 mil 2014 & 30 mil 2015 & 10 mil 2016
Yankees need to turn the chapter on Arod at the cost Teixeira. Can go after trading for Headley & A. Pujols and 2015 Hanley Ramirez
A-rod can fill mets void at SS 2015-2017 until Emad Rosario are ready
Texiera fill mets void at 1st til 2016 when Dominic SMith will be ready 2017
Take out Teixeira and Davis
Throw in Bryan Mitchell and its a deal.
The mets need help
this is only making them worse
2 guys who are nowhere near what they were 5 years ago and one is injury proned and the other is by far not a guy youd want on a team
the only team I see that would risk all of that is the marlins
they need help in anyway but the yankees must pay 4/5 of the combining contracts to make it work and get a mid level prospect and a bench player to make it work
Alright well, this makes absolutely no sense. Where would A-Rod play on the Mets? They shouldn't have to cut ties with Teixeira just to get rid of A-Rod. I'd much rather them pass on Headley, he really only had one great year several mediocre. Hanley Rameriz will still be with the Dodgers. I wouldn't want them to go after him anyways. 1) He's injury prone. 2) He can be very lazy. And have no need for Pujols. I also laugh at the fact you think that after 2 hip surgeries that A-Rod can play SS.
Why would the Mets want A-Roid?
No one wants A Roid. The Yankees are stuck with him and that stupid contract.
07 Mar 2014 01:35:33
Yankees get: Nick Franklin, James Paxton
Mariners get: David Phelps, PTBNL
Yankees make out like bandits and the Mariners just plain lose. It would take more than Phelps and a flipping PTBNL for those 2.
Just stop with the junk m's giving and not receiving trades
What kind of Yankee-loving, lop-sided trade is this? I've seen bad ones posted on here, but this one has to be a joke.
Only if the PTBNL is _____ (insert some good Yankee here that isn't overpaid)
To the post above- there is no good Yankee that isn't overpaid.
Nova, Robertson, Kelley
Nova is average. Robertson is unproven; judge at the end of this season if you think he is "good. "
OK, good point. But I want to point out that you seem to bias. You act like they are the only to over pay for players. They aren't, there's a team in L. A. that has a bunch. And I guess I have to remind you about a couple years ago when your team, the Red Sox, had a lot and had to blow it up and send almost everyone out. Yes they did get better. But I think the moves the Yankees made this offseason clearly made them better. Sometimes you need to be put your view aside. I always do. I use to hate the Red Sox, but as I became more of baseball fan overall, it became a respectful dislike. If you noticed I didn't put any big names there.
The thing with the Yankees is they spent $500 million this offseason but are still the third best team in the division (if they bring in Santana the Orioles may even be better). The infield, rotation, and bullpen all have questions. Your relying on players such as Beltran, Tex, and Jeter to have seasons that they may just not be able to have due to age. Come August and September, the team will be tired and outmatched by teams like Boston, Oakland, Texas, and Detroit.
That could happen. But I fully expect them to have made some trades do fill those holes by then. Yes 500 million was a lot to upgrade. They really had no choice after letting players walk the last few years and after last year. They had to improve. They thought their minor leaguers a couple years ago where going to be ready to step in and play. No one liked the cheap replacements they brought in, they still managed to win 85 games. This team is better, but yes still many holes left.
06 Mar 2014 15:56:01
It looks like Mets found their SS, should happen real soon
Asdrubal Cabrera for Lucas Duda Wilmer Flores Michael Fullmer
the former 2 allstar Indians had major drop in production with Francisco Lindor ready to replace him
If they can figure out the next 2 moves and If they can add quality lefties to bullpen, Mets should be over. 500 team
Lagares for De Aza
trade Brandon Nimmo, Dominic Smith, Ike Davis and Gavin Cecchini for Matt Adams - Cardinals have Allen Craig
Colon Wheeler Niese Syndergaard Gee- Mejia-long
No way the Cardinals would trade Adams for the junk they get in return
Indians are in no rush. Lindor needs more time. By waiting, Cleveland gets an extra year of Lindor and time to extend Cabrera's contract before trading him to the Mets for Flores and Syndergaard.
You lack the knowledge about those players to declare them junk. Dominic Smith was top 5 pick & 2-3 yrs away or else Mets would not make that deal. Smith comparison to Keith Hernandez offensively and defensively. With that being said Craig needs descent backup for now Davis fits that role. 2 yrs removed from 30 Hrs season himself. Nimmo & Cecchini are solid prospects 2-3 years away. 4 top 8 prospects in Mets minors is not junk. Mets ranked 13th overall prospects. They might have to throw in Rafael Montero. I say keep Adams if your in AL for DH but that not the case here.
Again with the Matt Adams proposal?
Okay, again, the Cardinals have no need for the Mets' trash; rather, they'll keep Adams and continue to win.
Syndergaard for Lindor you mean
Syndergaard is that good!
05 Mar 2014 18:56:02
Yankees Get: Nick Franklin
Mariners Get: David Phelps and JR Murphy
Why not throw in Bryan Mitchell!
Yankees would have to give up more. Phelps is not very good.
05 Mar 2014 15:51:11
Mariners final moves
Resign Kendrys Morales 3yr/30 mill
Sign Ryan Madson 2yr/3.5 mill
Sign Ervin Santana 4/ 45 mill
Sea Receives Montero-lagares (METS) Receive Jeremy Hellickson (TB)
Tampy Bay Receives Tyler Marlette, James Paxton, and Chris Taylor from seattle Mejia from (Tampa Bay)
Mets Receive Nick Frankin, Tyler Pike from seattle Receives Esobar from TB
feel free to comment. please don't be rude.
Well Madson wouldn't make sense for them. Santana to me will hold out a long time. But he could end up there, just not for that much and probably at this point a one year deal. They could just wait and see who gets cut at the end of spring or find someone cheaper on the free agent market. They have also been watching David Phelps of the Yankees. As for the trade, not very balanced to me. Mets give up to much for very little in return. Tampa receives too much for what they are trading.
Where is all this magical money coming from to pay all these guys?
I don't know that this really helps any of the teams involved.
Tv Deal money and the Mariners have more money then people think. I Just tried to make it fair for all three teams involved. but what can you do. It's better then stanton or kemp rumors though
But they don't have money. Their GM announced that they had just about reached their spending limit. Since then they signed Rodney to a decent deal.
If the Mariners had money to spend they would've already. You think they wouldn't have loved to spend $9 on a one year deal to sign Cruz who would slot
I like the trade from all 3 teams perspectives.
So the Mariners give up Franklin, Paxton, Pike, Taylor, and Marlette for a projected number 3 starter and a glove first CF'er? The Mariners would get totally shafted on this deal and receive endless criticism for pulling the trigger on this deal from fans. Please somebody try and persuade me to think this would be even sensible for the M's to do. Also, the M's do have money through their corporate ownership and those owners aren't inclined to spend unless they are intrigued to do do. Jack Z may have met his spending limit but to say they are out of money is ignorant.
Who will play SS for the Rays this year after the trade?
Hak Ju Lee.
Lee's not ready yet, he still needs a full year at Durham.
04 Mar 2014 21:59:13
Rockies deal Michael Cuddyer and Aidan Parker to the Mets for Rafael Montero and Wilmer Flores.
Nope. Not happening.
Michael Cuddyer's value will be at its highest closer to the trade deadline when teams are looking for either a RH bat and/or OF help. The Rockies could get a better package than this then.
04 Mar 2014 18:15:49
Yankees Get: Jose Reyes + Cash
BlueJays Get: Gary Sanchez, Mason Williams, Jose Ramirez, Bryan Mitchell
I think some Major League talent should go to Toronto since they just lost their starting shortstop.
And why should Toronto give NY money? I mean, if it was any other team, maybe you pitch in some cash to help pay Reyes, but the Yankees don't really need that help.
. great, another Bryan Mitchell.
I know this was suggested on Bleacher Report. But I really think the Yankees should stay away from Reyes. He's injury prone. Not to mention they don't need a leadoff hitter, they have Gardner and Ellsbury. When they go after a shortstop, it should be a young guy.
Mlb needs to put hard cap in place or luxury taxes like the NBA. double and triple times the cost of revenue sharing over 150 mil threshold
Well, they sorta do. If you go over 189 million a certain amount of times you pay 50% for every dollar your over. Even before that you still have to pay a certain percent.
04 Mar 2014 05:10:55
Nick Franklin/Dustin Ackley
Jays get a dynamic, young, impact, cost-controllable 2nd baseman
M's get an All-Star reliever that shapes up their bullpen and clears space in the infield
Makes sense for both teams.
The M's would be fools to trade potential impact position players for a reliever who has had one season with a sub 3. 00 ERA and have in house options better than Cecil.
I think he means player, as single
^ I know that. Franklin can net much more than a reliever and Ackley is to young to give up on because he was rushed to the majors.
Just think of the Johnson trade, but at a cheaper price. ^
03 Mar 2014 20:08:01
Here its Ny Mets fans
Plawecki & Amed Rosario
Lagares for De Aza
trade Brandon Nimmo, Dominic Smith, Wilmer Flores Ike Davis and Gavin Cecchini for Matt Adams - Cardinals have Allen Craig
Cardinals don't need those guys.
Not to mention its to much for Adams.
To say any team doesn't want strengthen the minor league prospects is insane. but they have 3 players at the same position all solid. Tavares will play the outfield.
Longtimebaseballfan opinion matters as yankee fan your opinion always matter
Nimmo and Cecchini were over rated. Accept for Dominic Smith none of players are quality mlb players. You could only hope Smith could be as good as Adams. Ike and Flores shown weakness in their game. Adams shown consistency with batting over avg. 300 60 games and playoffs and power and he is 24 years.
To the post above addressing me - if you think I am a Yankees fan, you are so far off the mark it's delirious. Lifetime Red Sox fan, bro.
Although longtimebaseballfan irks me most of the time in his defense why was he saying he's a red sox fan something to "disagree" with?

Yankees: wilmer flores (3b mets)
Mets: Chris Owings (ss Dbacks)
Dbacks: Gary Sanchez (C Yankees)
. could happen.
Arizona wants a major league ready catcher.
Not going to happen. Sorry buddy. The Yankees are trading their best prospect away for a borderline 3B.

I'm not sure what your proposal is. You seem to think Seattle has an unlimited supply of money.
I'm not sure why you think Morrison is trade bait. He was just brought over. Smoak could be traded. And Seriously, who is going to want Jesus Montero, he's a bum. He was suspended for connections to steroids, and he doesn't seem to care about conditioning in the offseason. Also there is no indication Cuddyer is even available.

With two injuries to their rotation and not a lot of help in power or the outfield, Seattle needs to make some moves before the season starts
Sign Sp Ervin Santana to a 4 year deal worth $58m
Make a trade
Seattle gets: OF Yoenis Cespedes
Oakland gets: SP Joe Niese, SS Chris Taylor, Mid-level prospect from the mets
NY Mets get: 2B Nick Franklin
Even though its a division trade, its possible with the A's spending a lot of money this off-season and Oakland having a lot of outfielders so Cespedes could be expendable.
(Note I did think about doing a straight trade of Franklin and a few prospects for Cespedes but I didn't think the A's would want him)
Resign DH Kendrys Morales to a 3 year deal worth $27m
2014 Seattle Mariners
1-CF Abraham Almonte
2-3B Kyle Seager
3-2B Robinson Cano
4-LF Yoenis Cespedes
5-DH Kendrys Morales
6-1B Justin Smoak
7-RF Dustin Ackley
8-C Mike Zunino
9-SS Brad Miller
Before Kuma and Walker return
CL- Fernando Rodney
After they return
CL- Fernando Rodney
These aren't like most of the moves I see on (trading for Stanton, Gonzalez, ect. ), the Mariners can actually aquire these players and it would be their best bet with their new mentality of them wanting to reach the post-season and not woundering were their going to pick in the draft haha. If any moves are going to be made, I think it should be Cespedez and Santana, it would help this team in the long run
Any chance Seattle might be interested in the likes of someone like Darin Ruf? Guy is gettting a raw deal in Philly in my opinion and could flourish in the AL West and cost next to nothing, while putting up some really productive numbers if he ever got a chance to play consistently. That, and Seattle does have a history of picking Rube's pocket. though a Little League coach could pull the wool over Rube's eyes.
What makes you think Cespedes is even available and for that matter if he is, why would the A's trade him in the division. The 3 team trade makes no sense. If it was just Seattle and New York, it would. I'm not sure why you think Seattle has all this money still laying around. But Morales and Santana won't happen. I think its funny that Cano is already moderately upset with little protection.
^As said he was with his mamotth contract.

Braves Get: Edwin Jackson, Darwin Barney, Jeff Samardzija
Cubs Get: Dan Uggla, Brandon Beachy
This has some merit, but Atlanta may not want the salary of Ed Jackson, and probably has no use for Barney.
If you make it Beachy, Uggla and
18-20 mil for Samardzjia (maybe).
Cubs would probably want one more
decent prospect. Braves should do
02 Mar 2014 16:48:29
Marlins Get : Felix Doubront, Will Middlebrooks, Daniel Nava, Drake Britton
Red Sox Get : Giancarlo Stanton, Adeiny Hechavarria
I think we've established that the Marlins will not trade Stanton at this time.
Even so, it would take another piece or two from Boston for this to work.
Middlebrooks and Nava are quad-A players right now. Middlebrooks could play his way right out of the starting lineup.
And you want to trade for Stanton? Nah, throw in Jackie Bradley, XAnder Baegarts, and then some.
The redsox r a good spot for Stanton, but it would b done in the offseason, and the sox won't give up doubront.
^ Because dempster look th e year off no 13. 25m for him
The money didn't matter to him, that's why The Red Sox put him on the restricted list or whatever list it was instead of the deal.

Brewers trade Richie Weeks to yankees for Heathcott, D. Betances, And nuno
Angels trade Blanton, Kendrick, Aybar, Iannetta to braves for David Hale, Dan Uggla, Johan Camargo, and Victor Caratini
Dbacks trade Chris Owings to yankees for Peter Obrien
To much for Weeks. Maybe a few years ago. But he isn't that player anymore, and Heathcott and Betances would be too much. For the Second traded, no one wants Blanton and no one wants Uggla. Also where would Aybar play? They have Simmons who they just locked up and have no need for a catcher. The thrid trade I think it would be a little more, maybe one more guy for Owings.
All three trade proposals have problems. At this point, Weeks should probably go for a PTBNL. The Angels-Braves deal does not need to include both starting middle infielders for LA (take out Aybar and perhaps. ). As for the third one, do you really think the D Backs will give up a top SS prospect for a bum?
Everyone wants Blanton. :)
Hey. All these trades suck.
As a brewers fan, I like the weeks trade, we get a lot more than he's worth
Everyone wants Blanton lol
