Here is my idea of a Yankees rebuild should they still find themselves in the cellar come June/ July:

Mets get: Andrew Miller
Yankees get: Zach Wheeler, Brandon Nimmo, Eric Campbell, Jeff Walters

White Sox get: Carlos Beltran
Yankees get: Daniel Fields, Zach Putnam, Kevan Smith

Marlins get: CC Sabathia, yankees pay 75 percent of remaining contract
Yankees get: PTBNL

Tigers get: Aroldis Chapman
Yankees get: Blaine Hardy, Buck Farmer, Dixon Machado, Tyler Collins, PTBNL.

Surely the Yankees could get better than that pile of turds from Detroit. Chapman is probably baseball's best reliever.

Agree0 Disagree2

02 May 2016 15:20:10
1. The Yankees could get a way better return for Miller than that.
2. Why would they trade Miller since they have him under control for a couple more years?
3. Why would the Marlins want Sabathia?
4. Why would the White Sox want Beltran and where would he play?
5. The Yankees could get a much better return for Chapman from another team that actually has a decent farm system.

Agree1 Disagree1

02 May 2016 22:06:13
I'm a Tigers fan and I know we'd have to give up more than that. It would be more like this:

Tigers get: Aroldis Chapman
Yankees get: Nick Castellanos, Derek Hill, Matt Boyd and Steven Moya.

This defeats the purpose of them getting younger. Mateo, Sanchez, Kaprielian, Clarkin, and most of the others aren't going anywhere. And 1) its entirely way to early to predict what will happen at the deadline. And 2) If they don't start hitting this won't even be necessary.

Agree4 Disagree0

01 May 2016 15:24:32
sull, this is not very good. You have the Yankees giving up most of their young guys for three players, one of whom they don't need (McGee), and one of whom (Richards) I cannot see the Angels parting with.

Agree2 Disagree1

01 May 2016 15:26:00
BATMAN! I know these are hard to get rid of but every time I don't include them in a trade I get bashed for not offering enough. Plus, these may be some of their top prospects but they aren't positions of need other than Kaprielian. Sanchez is blocked by McCann for at least the next two years still and Mateo is blocked by Gregorious until 2019. As good as they are they won't have room for them for a while.

Agree0 Disagree1

01 May 2016 17:24:24
Hey Red Sox Guy, this is not a sull post. read the name next time.
And Bwright, the trades are still awful. You slightly overpay for Cargo, and then way overpay for Richards. And again this is way to early to predict the trade deadline. Sanchez may be blocked until McCann's contract is up in a couple years, but that doesn't mean the Yankees won't want him. He could be mentored by McCann for the time being and serve as the backup. Secondly about Gregorious, he could easily be traded to create room if the Yankees are convinced he can handle the starting position. On top of that Mateo isn't projected to reach the majors until 2018.

HOU is doing crap right now when they're expected to be the AL West champions. HOU's pitching has struggled mightily and TB is struggling with their offense, which has always been their problem.

HOU gets: Jake Odorizzi, PTBNL
TB gets: AJ Reed, Colin Moran

HOU doesn't need to use AAA fill ins any more for the SP and TB's offense will immediately improve. TB can call up Snell to replace Odorizzi.

I like the idea, I think Odorizzi has a big ceiling so the Rays might ask for another decent prospect, but it's a good base. But definatly a deal near the deadline.

The Astros aren't going to trade their stud 1b prospects for a 2 or 3 starter.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Apr 2016 15:44:42
Like I said in my last post, Bregman has no place in Huston unless they move him to catcher or a pitcher.

I say package him with others to the Yankees.

Astros receive: Andrew Miller, Bryan McCann

Yankees receive: Alex Bregman, Derick Fisher, Tony Kemp, Matt Duffy, Michel Filez, and possibly some other players.

This gives the Astros another power bat in McCann and a much needed upgrade at catcher and move Castro to the backup role and they can then release Kratz, it also gives them Miller who will step right in to help their struggling bullpen and a hard thrower as well which is something they don't have a lot of.

The Yankees become younger, this frees up space for Gary Sanchez to come up and help and it helps them save money ahed of the 2018 free agent class and we all know what's available in that class right now. They get a haul of young players as well that will be up soon and give them depth at weaker positions. I see other than the players already in the bigs Kemp being the first call up out of this bunch since he can be used as a utility player to give the older players days off when needed.

What do you guys think?

Leave it to the Red Sox fan to make such a putrid trade.

Agree3 Disagree2

27 Apr 2016 19:50:49
The Yankees could probably get a bigger and better return for Miller and McCann. And as usual sull your reasoning for a trade is just as horrible as the trade itself. The Yankees have a SS prospect in Jorge Mateo, he may not be as good as Bregman, but I think they are very content with him in the future. And do you even pay attention to spelling when you type?

Agree3 Disagree1

27 Apr 2016 13:37:14
Astros: Jose Fernandez, Martin Prado

Marlins: AJ Reed, Francis Martes, Daz Cameron, Michael Feliz

'Stros get an ace to pair with Keuchel and Prado to add experience and upgrade 3B.

Marlins get a potential ace in Martes and a project in Feliz who might have better success pitching in the NL.

They also get Reed to play 1B and create an 80 HR combination between him and Stanton.

Daz Cameron would be a great CF for them in a few years and bat behind another former big leaguer's son in Dee Gordon.

Nope. Try again with a realistic proposal.

Agree2 Disagree0

27 Apr 2016 15:30:05
Does the name Justin Bour mean anything to you? Unless you plan on moving him or Reed to another position, this won't work. And remember there is no DH in the NL, and unless you have names such as Correa, Muchullers, Tuckers (both of them) and much more, there won't be a deal here.

Agree2 Disagree0

27 Apr 2016 15:37:28
why does it seem every new person on here is trying to make sull look good? This quite frankly awful. The Astros haven't been good to start the year. The Marlins aren't going to trade Fernandez for such a small package. It would probably take a lot more to get in done.

27 Apr 2016 01:26:17
Blue Jays-Astros trade:

Blue Jays get: A. J Reed

Astros get: Edwin Encarnasion

The Jays get someone to add to their power lineup and someone who is young too.

The Astros get a power hitting first baseman who they can re-sign since they have more money available than the Jays, and they could then move White to 3rd which is their most unstable position right now.

And after Collibello went down with the 80-game ban (I believe his story though) they will let Reed develope more so they will play Smoke at 1st and they will need someone to play DH or another position moving one of their weaker defenders or older players to the DH spot, which leads me to this deal:

Blue Jays get: CoCo Crisp

Athletics get: Carl Wise

Crisp could move into the outfield and move Bautista to DH or just slot Crisp in at DH, Crisp also gives them a better lead off option and offers some power too.

Oakland gets a young middle infield prospect that the Jays don't need at the moment and it won't be a major loss, a year of an aging CoCo won't cost them too much but it will be worth it. And with Valencia on the DL Wise gives the A's another good option to turn too when needed.

Jays lineup:
1. Crisp DH
2. Donaldson 3rd
3. Joy Bats RF
4. Tulo SS
5. Smoke 1st
6. Martin C
7. Saunders LF
8. Goins 2nd
9. Pillar

1. Barney INF
2. Thole C
3. Carrera OF
4. Dominguez 3rd/ 1st (will be sent down when Travis returns)

2017 lineup:
1. Pillar CF
2. Donaldson 3rd
3. Joey Bats RF (re-signs)
4. Tulo SS
5. Reed DH
6. Smoke 1st
7. Martin C
8. Travis 2nd
9. Saunders LF

1. Correra/ Cicilinii/ Free agent OF
2. Thole/ free agent C
3. Goins INF
4. Barney/ Domingez/ Free agent INF

What do you guys think?

The Jays are built to win now. This will not happen.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Apr 2016 13:06:28
The Astros have the ability to re-sign E. E unlike the Blue Jays, and this will help the Jays win now and help them win in the future as well.

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Apr 2016 15:09:10
How does this help the Jays win now? Encarnacion will likely be in the Majors all year long and will be fine. Reed isn't even out of the minors yet.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Apr 2016 15:33:29
E. E is a key pice for them yes, but since they are so deep, they can absorb the loss of him that's all, and it adds a guy who is the closest comparison to Stanton in terms of power and that is hard to do. that's all, and the Jays might as well get something for him since he seems unwilling to re-sign with them.

Agree0 Disagree2

27 Apr 2016 19:08:10
Which of the players from the Blue Jays "deep" bench would replace Encarnacion?

Carrera? Thole? Barney?

You could play those 3 for 162 games, I doubt they combine for 20 home runs, or come anywhere near the production of Encarnacion.

Agree4 Disagree0

26 Apr 2016 18:52:49
Blue Jays/ Braves swap

Jays get: Freddie Freeman, Julio Teheran

Braves get: Edwin Encarnacion, Connor Greene, Max Pentecost, Richard Urena, Dalton Pompey

The Jays get a left handed bat to sandwich between Bautista, Donaldson and Tulowitzki. With support in the lineup, Freeman should regain his all star form. They can let EE go because he won't be around much longer anyway. They also get Teheran to provide depth to the rotation, especially if injuries force Happ or Aaron Sanchez to the bullpen.

The Braves get Encarnacion to play first and hit some home runs for them since they can't hit any. They also get prospects to continue their rebuild. Pompey may see his career revitalized in ATL's system and Pentecost and Urena can contribute soon.

Believable1 Unbelievable13

26 Apr 2016 19:21:17
It would take SO much more to get freeman AND Teheran.

Agree4 Disagree1

26 Apr 2016 20:34:15
-Encarnacion is a free agent after this year, no one is giving up MLB pieces for him.
-Pompey is decent, but he's not a headliner.
-Greene and Urena are still a ways out, and Urena being a middle infielder would be useless now that Atlanta has Swanson and Albies.
-Pentecost hasn't played since 2014, so he's a complete crap shoot at this point.

Besides, that package (minus Edwin, who won't be traded) wouldn't draw Julio Teheran alone. Add in Freeman and you're dreaming.

The Jays don't have what it to swing a trade of this caliber. Not many teams in baseball have it.

Agree1 Disagree1

27 Apr 2016 03:38:36
if EE gonnna get involved, there's got to be a third team - a player with his ability doesn't wanna play for a team thatll lose 100 games.

Rays get: C Jonathan Lucroy
Brewers get: 1B Jake Bauers, RHP Taylor Guerreri, 3B Richie Schaffer

Brewers get a 1B and a 3B for their future plans, as well as a young starting pitcher. Rays get a catcher that can actually hit the ball.

Believable3 Unbelievable7

26 Apr 2016 20:35:17
I'd have to think the Brewers would be demanding someone like Blake Snell.

Lucroy is one of the top 3-5 catchers in the game, he's going to bring back an insane ransom from whoever trades for him.

Agree4 Disagree0

27 Apr 2016 01:00:02
Replace Guerrie with Snell and a throw in piece on each side. Then a deal will get done.

22 Apr 2016 07:38:20
If SEA is above 500 or @ 500 around June, they need to get Jay Bruce. He can slot into RF and also DH when Cruz goes to right. Edgar Martinez can help Bruce on cutting down his K/ O rate.

Ketel Marte, Seth Smith, DJ Peterson

Jay Bruce, Zach Cosart, John Lamb

Marte is the key piece in this deal. He is very young, at has potential to hit .275 at the MLB level.

Believable0 Unbelievable8

22 Apr 2016 11:52:03
Pink, Bruce is a lefty power hitter, and would fit much better in other places such as Baltimore, Yankee Stadium, or Cleveland.

Agree4 Disagree0

22 Apr 2016 15:54:33
"He has potential to his .275 at the MLB level"

You realize that's just slightly above average, don't you? .275 isn't something that you get super excited about.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Apr 2016 22:02:05
So you give up a 22 year old shortstop who has potential as well as one of your best prospects in a already very weak farm system for an older outfielder an older shortstop and a starter that they do not need. The only player that has no real spot on the Mariners or is a key future piece in this deal is Seth Smith.

Your amazing waffles have made you blind to what is a good trade. Not that you have ever posted a good one. But Calhoun wouldn't bring back that package.

Agree1 Disagree1

22 Apr 2016 15:57:27
Kole Calhoun could bring in a better package than that.

Not sure why the Angels want a 31-year-old knuckleballer who has done nothing of value yet, an infielder who only signs minor-league deals, and a utility guy.

Calhoun is good. Brock Holt is good, but not as good as Calhoun. The other two are not that great, or valuable at any capacity.

Agree2 Disagree1

25 Apr 2016 21:59:03
Sox will never do this Holt and Wright are key peices to this team, and Rutlege adds key depth and for just one guy who could help our team but why? Holt is doing fine so why mess things up that don't need to be messed up, and if they were to trade anyone trade Panda first and then go from there.

Agree0 Disagree2

26 Apr 2016 01:37:52
Steven Wright is a key piece to the Red Sox.

Boston sports fans are funny.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2016 18:29:45
Knuckleballers are not that common and very hard to hit so anytime you got one, he is a key piece and he is a veteran as well. That's why I said he was a key piece, not just because I am a Sox fan.

Agree0 Disagree2

26 Apr 2016 20:37:49
He's a veteran?

No, he's a 31-year-old who bloomed super late. 1 year of service time doesn't make someone a veteran.

And you might be the only person calling Steven Wright a "key piece", Sox fans included. He's 100% expendable, and the Red Sox would move him in a heartbeat if something better came along.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2016 12:33:55
Red Sox trade:

BOS gets: James Paxton, De Fratus

SEA gets: Sandaval+$$$$, Rutledge

Boston gets both starting and bullpen pitching help and the Mariners get Infeild help which they need, their SS is struggling so Rutlige could help with that and Sandaval could slide in to the DH role once healthy.

This causes two other moves for the red sox's since De Fratus isn't on the 40-man roster they should DFA Edwin Escobar to make room for him on the roster. Then they would need to call someone up to replace Rutledge who is filling Sandavals spot on the roster now and they should do that by calling up Marrero.

What do you guys think?

Reds get: Seth Smith, Tyler O'Niel, D. J Peterson

*Would happen more into the season

SEA's problem has been offense and Bruce can help solve the problem. Smith would have no place if Bruce came to SEA, so he goes to CIN. Like the Segura/ Hill deal, one team gets an upgraded player at a position while giving prospects and the "worse" player to the other team.

Cincy has given away assets (Frazier, Chapman, Leake) too cheaply lately. This would continue that pattern.

I never thought it was possible to make the Reds worse, but alas someone did it.

You, sir, deserve a prize.

Agree1 Disagree1

17 Apr 2016 20:53:03
The Reds have practically given away Todd Frazier, Aroldis Chapman and Mike Leake over the past year, so this would follow that trend.

Agree0 Disagree2

21 Apr 2016 16:56:21
-Frazier wasn't as bad of a return as the media suggested. The Dodgers got Montas, who was hugely over-valued, and Thompson, who is a bench OF at his highest. Peraza is a fine 2B, as were the other pieces.

-Leake brought in Adam Duvall and Keury Mella. Duvall will do quite well for himself in Cincy, as will Mella.

-Chapman had no value whatsoever.

I don't get why people think the Reds were fleeced. They did just fine. Bruce will be traded for a great value as well.

Agree1 Disagree1

22 Apr 2016 03:23:17
Chapman had no value? Best closer in baseball. We will have to agree to disagree on that.

As for Frazier, the Reds should have gotten more.

Agree0 Disagree3

22 Apr 2016 07:22:40
Value is measured in many variables and contexts.

For Chapman, his impending suspension wasn't known at the time of the trade. So trading for a guy who may not have played much was a crap shoot. Not to mention the bad PR it could have led to had it been worse.

Chapman's a great closer. But his situation made him almost completely without value. Reds got lucky to get anything more than a compensation pick for him.

Agree1 Disagree1

14 Apr 2016 18:19:31
Red Sox trade:

MIL gets: Panda, Ellias, PTBNL+$$$$$

BOS gets: Chace Anderson, Garin Cecchini

MIL continues their rebuild but gets another veteran presence.

BOS gets rid of Panda and adds Cecchini who was a DFA casualty this past offseason he would take a spot on the bench and serve as a backup for 1st and 3rd and can be an emergency fill in at 2nd and SS if needed and can play corner outfield too (almost like having 2 Brock Holts) and he is a more cost friendly and in my opinion just an overall better option than Panda. And they also add starting pitching/ long relief depth with Anderson.

I know you guys will probably shot this down, but I think anyway we can ship panda out and get at least something for him is a good plan. I don't really care if you think Anderson is too much but the real 2 peices in this deal is Panda and Cecceini, and if Anderson isn't part of the deal I don't think they need to ship Elias out and maybe not a PTBNL either but as long as we ship out Panda and money for his contract this should work.

What do you guys think?

How does acquiring someone like Sandoval help a team continue to rebuild? Makes no sense sull.

Agree5 Disagree4

14 Apr 2016 23:09:32
It gives them a 2nd star behind Luccroy and I feel like a change of scenery will help him and getting him back to the NL where he thrived in past years will help to I think. And he would play everyday too. That's why it would help.

Agree2 Disagree4

14 Apr 2016 23:21:04
Sandoval has no value whatsoever right now. None. And his contact is an albatross the rightfully got Ben Cherington canned. The Sox would have to add a prospect or two, plus money, to get a case of Old Milwaukee from the Brewers.

Agree4 Disagree2

15 Apr 2016 01:32:31
Sull, when teams rebuild they trade stars away not acquire one. Especially one that has weight issues and is now a high paid bench player. And a change of scenery could work, but again with your flawed reasoning a trade to a team rebuilding could make him lazier and possibly fatter.

Agree4 Disagree2

15 Apr 2016 11:58:15
Panda doesn't have much value and he has an attitude about his weight.
I see him as having been paid, and being semi retired.

Agree4 Disagree1

15 Apr 2016 14:33:09
I still think that this is a good deal.

Agree2 Disagree4

15 Apr 2016 20:01:15
There is no way we are trading Sandoval unless we are either paying more than 75% of what is left on his salary or giving up a top prospect. He is to damaged now. With him going on the DL with an "injury", with his former trainer coming out and saying that he needs a babysitter and with him not being able to play the field with out having an error or getting on base.

The Red Sox really struck out her with this one and it's going to be real hard to overcome it.

And by no means do I see us getting something of value for him what so ever.

Agree3 Disagree0

Yankees Deadline Moves

If the Nationals are out of the playoff race,

Nationals get Brett Gardner, Ivan Nova, Gary Sanchez, Luis Cessa, Ronald Torreyes, and Ian Clarkin

Yankees get Stephen Strasburg and Shawn Kelley

This is not a bad return for a half a year of Strasburg considering the Nationals probably won't resign him. The Yankees get an ace to help their playoff push and deepen the bullpen even more.


LF Ellsbury
2B Castro
RF Beltran
1B Texeira
DH A-Rod
C McCann
3B Headley
CF Hicks
SS Gregorious


C Romine
2B/ 3B Refsnyder
1B/ 2B/ OF Ackley
1B/ OF Swisher

Rotation (6 man to keep all the fragile arms healthy)



Mitchell (Long/ Middle Reliever and Spot Starter)
Kelley (Middle Reliever)
Shreve (Middle Reliever)
Betances (7th Inning Setup Man)
Miller (8th Inning Setup Man)
Chapman (Closer)

Probably not going to happen but what do you guys think?

Little bit early to predict the trade deadline don't ya think? Also if the Nationals are in contention, which they should be, why would they trade Strasburg? Especially for that laughable package. BTW Mitchell is pretty much out until at least August.

Something tells me the Nationals won't be out of the playoff hunt anytime soon.

BATMAN! I know Mitchell is out until August. The trade deadline is July 31st is it not?

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Apr 2016 12:40:09
well for some reason this year they moved it to August 1st, something about not having the deadline on a Sunday.

Agree2 Disagree1

13 Apr 2016 19:42:27
BATMAN! you're right I forgot they moved it to August 1st this year but the point is Mitchell should still be back around then.

If the Mariners don't contend by the all star break, they need to rebuild again. Trading anyone with value would make sense.

If TB is a potentially in the wild card race:
TB gets: Nelson Cruz + 10 million dollars
SEA gets: Blake Snell, Garret Whitley, Andrew Belllatti
Snell is a SEA native, good pitcher. TB has a great rotation and I think that Cruz would "boom" their offense in a similar way Tulo did midway in the season last season.

SF gets: Joaquin Benoit
SEA gets: Kyle Crick, Jake Smith

BOS gets: Adam Lind, 5 million dollars
SEA gets: Sam Travis, Pat Light

These trades are only IF they can't contend.

I think the Rays would need more than 10 million from the Mariners in what's left of Cruz's contract. Plus the Rays aren't trading Snell. The other 2 trades are terrible. Plus where will Lind play on the Red Sox?

Giants don't have too much need for Benoit. He's almost an identical version of Santiago Casilla, except 3 years older.

I don't think Kyle Crick could bring much back in any trade, but they could do better than an almost 40-year-old reliever, or better yet, just keep him and try him out as a reliever/ back-end starter.

And the Adam Lind trade is awful. Absolutely terrible. Lind has significantly more value than that.

Agree2 Disagree2

12 Apr 2016 15:07:02
Why would the Red Sox trade either of those guys? Travis will be in the bigs soon, he will be a key part of the team soon. And Light is highly regarded pitcher and won't be traded anywhere, especially with Koji most likely leaving next year it opens a spot for him most likely.

The Giants trade is terrible.
