this is in the works right now

KEMP Trade Talks Officially Dead:
Kemp still using walking boot 8 months after his "ankle sprain", not expected to be 100% by spring training adding to problems due to horrible contract and declining skills. Suddenly LAD OF doesn't seem that crowded anymore.
Dodger front office shopping Ethier and Crawford to display confidence in Kemp's return. Little interest in them except in exchange for players with equally poor contracts.
Tanaka signing is #1 goal. Open INF spot will likely require trade of lesser prospects. Puig availability, no comment, but will certainly depend on Tanaka's status.
Ignore all posts predicting a Kemp trade until at least after opening day.
I usually hate it when people come here and try to make declarative statements as if they are actually in front offices, but thank you. This was needed. The guy is immovable because he's too injury-prone.

3 Team Trade
CIN: Brett Gardner
NYY: Brandon Phillips
PHI: Homer Bailey
I would think that Bailey would end up in NYY

The Rays are getting very specific with SEA as to the players required to obtain David Price. SP Taijuan Walker and INF Brad Miller will cover 85% of the asking price. The remaining 15% can be expanded if SEA has any interest in OF Joyce, C Lobaton or UTL Rodriguez.
10 Dec 2013 15:35:37
Mariners Offseason after Cano
SEA- David Price
TB- Tijuan Walker, Justin Smoak, Chris Taylor and Tyler Pike
Sign Nelson Cruz 4 years $60 million
Re-sign Kendrys Morales 3 years $38 million
C-- Mike Zunino
1B- Kendrys Morales
2B- Robinson Cano
3B- Kyle Seager
SS- Brad Miller
LF- Abraham Almonte
CF- Dustin Ackley
RF- Nelson Cruz
DH- Jesus Montero
SP- Felix Hernandez
SP- David Price
SP- Hisashi Iwakuma
SP- James Paxton
SP- Erasmo Ramirez
10 Dec 2013 15:28:57
Rumor is that the Indians are listening to offers for RP Masterson and SS Cabrera. any interested teams?.
10 Dec 2013 06:44:37
4 teams most involved in David Price trade: SEA, ARI, TEX, LAD
TEX: SP Perez, C Alfaro, SP Jackson, 3B Gallo
SEA: SP Walker, INF Miller, SP Diaz, OF Guerrero
ARI: SP Bradley, INF Owings, C Trahan, SP Chafin
LAD: OF Pederson, INF Seager, SP Lee, SP Reed
Mariners aren't willing to put Walker in any deal. When they included him in their offer for Upton last year they thought it was a mistake and probably pulled him.
I think the SEA trade above with those 4 players is right on target, exactly what AF wants for Price.
The M's don't want to trade Walker and the Dbacks don't want to trade Bradley
10 Dec 2013 04:45:13
M's - Kemp, Price
Dodgers - Ackley, Joyce, Mauer, Bleaven
Rays - Smoak, Frankin, Wilhemsem, Paxton, Montero
If it's a 3 team trade the dodgers have to trade cash to the m's and need to trade something to the rays
10 Dec 2013 03:18:12
Both players free agents after season so it works. Reds get an outfielder and pitching prospect and yanks get pitcher and prospect.
Idk if reds want to part with bailey and a prospect.
Take out cash to Yankees and u have a deal
Dylan muniz? who?
Don't think Reds would give up Bailey and Prospect
Yankee fans can continue to wish for a homer for gardner trade. But it simply is not enough in return for a two time no hitting pitcher.
10 Dec 2013 03:02:33
ANGELS DIAMONDBACKS TRADE
Would love to see Cahill replaced with Corbin or Miley but this could really help both teams greatly
Angels need to add a little more to trade.
10 Dec 2013 01:33:33
I'm putting Tulo in STL.
Colorado gives Tulo, gets Shelby Miller (P), Kolten Wong (2B)
Why would the Cards do that? They just signed Jhonny Peralta, largely because adding him doesn't send away any of their young talent.
Risky for STL.
How about LAA aybar for miller
More for Tulowitzki. He ain't going to be traded that easy
10 Dec 2013 01:28:18
Ok If the Mariners are going to trade Walker, it shouldn't be for Price, It should be for Giancarlo Stanton. We would have Stanton under team control a lot longer than Price. We need a bat in the Outfield and we already have Felix.
Seattle recieves: OF Giancarlo Stanton
Miami recieves: SP Taijuan Walker, 2B Nick Franklin, SS Chris Taylor, RP Stefen Pryor
Then the Mariners make these moves as well
Sign DH Kendrys Morales to a 2 year deal worth $30m
Sign SP Matt Garza to a 4 year deal worth $68m
Seattle recieves: OF Dom Brown, Cl Pettibone
Philly receives: SP Pike, 3B/OF Romero, SP Maurer, Cash considerations
Oakland recieves: 3 Mid level prospects, cash considerations
Seattle recieves: LHP Brett Anderson
2014 Seattle Mariners:
1-SS Brad Miller
2-LF Dominic Brown
3-2B Robinson Cano
4-RF Giancarlo Stanton
5-DH Kendrys Morales
6-3B Kyle Seager
7-1B Justin Smoak
8-C Mike Zunino
9-CF Abraham Almonte/Michael Saunders
1-RHP Felix Hernandez
2-RHP Matt Garza
3-RHP Hisashi Iwakuma
4-LHP Brett Anderson
5-LHP James Paxton
I like the Staton deal, but not the Dom Brown deal
So, M's are give up all their prospect for today's power players? Also, none will hit over 25 HR in that ballpark. Who would go to Seattle? It's a bad baseball city
10 Dec 2013 01:26:51
Lucrative trade proposal:
3-team deal MIA-BAL-LAD
MIA receives: Adam Jones, Hyun-Jin Ryu
BAL receives: Carl Crawford, Logan Morrison
LAD receives: Giancarlo Stanton, Wei-Yin Chen
So Bal is supposed to give up Adam Jones and Wei-Yin Chen for Carl Crawford and Logan Morrison? Why in the world would they do that?
Oh yea and the Dodgers only have to give up Ryu to get Stanton and Chen? Keep dreaming
10 Dec 2013 00:53:10
Braun goes to Minnesota Twins with Jorge Lopez for Bryan Buxton and Stuart Turner with Felix Jorge
-Twins get BIG NAME player and young power arm
-Brewers get top OF prospect, catching prospect, and a big salary out of the way to go after free agents.
Twins wouldn't trade the Number One Prospect in All of Baseball for a proven cheater.
The Twins will never give up Buxton.
Actually Braun's contract is pretty cheap for the next couple of years.
It's the 6 years after that, when Braun enters full decline mode, that the contact turns gruesome.
This Actualy happened
Twins would be dumb to do that
Twins laugh in your face, Bruan is only a big name because he uses roids, he isn't worth half of what Buxton is worth right now
10 Dec 2013 00:49:51
Yankees get: Madison Bumgarner
Giants get: Brett Gardner, Dellin Betances, JR Murphy
That is a horrible trade for the yankees! They do not get equal value back. A staright up trade of gardner for madison will do it
Madison Bumgarner is the Giants ace of the future, he is only 24 and a beast. No way the Giants trade him for a mediocre return like that.
Geez, I hope you're not serious.
Whatever fool that said the Yankees aren't getting an equal return is completely wrong. The GIANTS aren't getting an equal return, and there is no way they trade Bumgarner in the first place.
10 Dec 2013 00:37:00
Giants get - Justin Maxwell
Royals get - Mike Kickham, Eric Surkamp
Maybe Kickham for Justin Maxwell, but not Surkamp.
10 Dec 2013 00:14:35
To silence all BIG NAME trade rumors, here's how it's going to go down:
Between LAD and TB: Noel Cuevas,
Matt Kemp, Tom Windle, and cash (around the difference of Price and Kemp's contracts - $10 million) for Alex Colome and David Price
-Price is younger than Kemp and is paid less; try facing these guys in a postseason or regular season series:
The Rays are trading Price because they don't want his huge salary, so there is no way they take on Kemp's.
Very little chance TB would trade a B prospect for Kemp and cash. You want PRICE and COLOME? LOL
A little more
But TB won't be able to afford Kemp
I have a better trade. Kemp to Philadelphia for Howard. That should help in the OF.
Try again with your Eight Ball prediction.
I bet that's not how it's going to go down.
Tampa won't take Kemp.
To one of the replies: Howard to LA? They have a guy named Adrian Gonzalez. Come on dude. Think things through.

Rest of Phillies offseason
Trade 1-Philadelphia aquires Chris Sale P from Chicago WS in exchange for Domonic Brown, Ethan Martin, Jon Pettibone, Philippe Aumonte, Cash, Tommy Joseph, Caesar Hernandez and Cody Asche
Phillies are shopping Brown and the Sox are shopping pitchers.
WS get a good young outfielder and a lot of good prospects
Phils rotation could be enough to make them good
Trade 2 Philadelphia aquires Michael Pineda from New York Y in exchange for Jonathan Papelbon and Kyle Kendrick
Phillies are shopping Papelbon and they get their 5th arm in the rotation
Yankees get a Greta CP who they need after losing Rivera
Signing 1-Philadelphia signs Grant Balfour 3y 30m
Phillies get a good closer
Signing 2-Cory Hart 3y 50m
Signing 3-Willie Bloomquist 2y 7m
Good backup or can platoon with Franco
Bloomquist signed with Seattle
Bloomquist signed with the m's
Yanks aren't giving up Pineda until they see what he can do.
Well, I laugh at the overpayment for Sale. You seem to know the Phillies have a crappy farm system. But I see Sale going to another team with better upside prospects, something the White Sox desperately need. I mean their number 1 prospect last year hit below 200. Yankees don't need Kendrick, He would get lit up in New York. As for Papelbon, I see it as a possibility, a slim one. Also they have a 5th starter in Phelps or Warren. Balfour will go somewhere else. 3 years 50 mil is to much for Hart. The Phillies rotation would be to left handed. Also their window close years ago.
A Seven for one trade will never ever ever happen. To sugest such an asinine thing will have people tell you to get a helmet as you can ill afford to lose anymore brain cells.
Bloomquist is with Seattle
Bloomquist signed with the mariners
Gee, Philly sure has more than their fair share of crappy contracts. With a quality GM, rebuilding today, they could leave the cellar in 2019.
Lineup would be
Maybe platoon Galvis or trade J-Roll and start Freddy
Love the rotation
Sorry forgot to add J. biddle TO Chi
You lost me when you said any team would take Papelbon's contract.
Bloomquist was signed already by the Mariners
09 Dec 2013 23:50:06
Sign Omar Infante 2-years, 14 million to play third base.
Trade Ichiro, JR Murphy, Dante Bichette Jr. for Brandon Phillips
Sign Tanaka 5-years, 60 million
Sign Joaquin Benoit 2-years, 22 million
2014 Projected Lineup
1. J. Ellsbury CF
2. B. Phillips 2B
3. M. Teixeira 1B
4. B. McCann C
5. A. Soriano LF
6. C. Beltran DH
7. O. Infante 3B
8. D. Jeter/B. Ryan SS
9. B. Gardner RF
1. C. Sabathia
2. M. Tanaka
3. I. Nova
4. H. Kuroda
5. M. Pineda
Comments on moves:
Infante-Veteran guy, can play second as well
Phillips-Reds get catcher, 3B, and outfielder, Yanks get big-name 2B to replace Cano
Tanaka-Newsflash, NYY needs SP
Benoit-Bullpen depth, can close, will also make more than Nathan (2yr/20m) and Wilson (1yr/10m)
I see Infante happening. Tanaka if he gets posted I also see happening, but for 6 years a bit more money. I don't see Benoit happening.
Newsflash: Yankees made up story that Phillips was on trading block to hinder Cano. Cincy has no desire to trade him.
If the posting fee for Tanka drops to $20M and more teams jump in, his contract will move closer to 5 years $100M.
Yankees can't be bothered to work out any trades. Just find a nice home for the contracts of current players not roster worthy. Frees up more time to sign new guys.
09 Dec 2013 23:35:53
That would be a good trade for the mets. They get there shortstop of the future.
The A's already have Punto and Sogard to platoon at 2B.
Parnell is untouchable
Punto is a back up infielder and sogard isn't as good as Murphy. This is a solid deal.
09 Dec 2013 21:14:57
mariners trade Montero, Noesi to Dodgers for Nick Buss and Scott VanSlyke
I like this move for LAD. Montero really can't catch so have him stand behind Ellis in the new backup catcher position. Then remove weak bat Gordon from lineup and let Ramirez field as a SS/3B hybrid.
09 Dec 2013 19:26:23
David Price and Ben Zobrist to Mets for Noah Synergaard or Zack Wheeler (which ever they prefer), Ike Davis, Wilmer Flores and Brandon Nimmo
Awesome trade for the mets. They become instant contenders with a trade like that.
No chance. Maybe for Zobrist alone.
It would probably take both Syndergaard and Wheeler to get Both Price and Zobrist
Syndergaard Harvey Wheeler
will take Ny back to days when they Cone Gooden and Sid Fernandez
If you throw in Zobris it's Wheeler AND Syndengard
09 Dec 2013 18:38:51
Phillies trade M. Franco, J. Biddle, D. Brown, B. Revere, and Pettibone to the White Sox for Sale and A. Garcia.
09 Dec 2013 16:52:07
NYM gets: Mike Trout
LAA get: Matt Harvey, Zach Wheeler, and Travis d'Arnaud
Highly unlikely to happen. Trout isn't available, although he should be considering he could bring quite a haul and replenish the barren Angels farm system. Mets aren't going to trade Harvey, Wheeler, and d'Arnaud. Plus Harvey is out for the Year with TJ surgery.
Angels laugh hysterically
Angels wouldn't trade Trout.
09 Dec 2013 14:48:02
Mets trade Ike Davis and Brandon Nimmo to Rays for Matt Joyce and Yunel Escobar.
As a mets fan, I can tell you we probably won't include Nimmo in a deal. I'd think Flores or a pitcher is more likely.
No way. Joyce for Davis is possible.
09 Dec 2013 08:19:56
Dbacks trade skaggs delgado pollock drury and ptbnl
rays trade price
Where's McCarthy? Just paying him 10 million a year to sit next to Cody Ross?
I think the conversation starts with Bradley for Price.
Bradley is not going anywhere and they said Mccarthy could be a long relief bullpen guy
Looks like Price won't be a Diamondback anytime soon.
09 Dec 2013 06:19:09
Mariner moves Twins Doumit and Willingham for Noesi and Beavan Dodger VanSlyke for Mauer FA sign
SP Colon 2yrs 24 mil Garza 4 yrs 56 mil.
Staff Line up
Felix SS Miller
Kuma LF Ackley
Garza 2b Cano
Colon Dh Willingham
Walker /Paxton 3b Seager
BP 1b Smoak
Bawcom RF VanSlyke
Furquaher C Zunino
Pryor CF Saunders
Furbush Bench Romero, Bloomquist, Almonte
Ok. Colon will not get 2 and 24. he's either 40 or almost 40. I see one year and 8-9.
Colon to 2 6m
09 Dec 2013 06:16:49
Mariners final moves
Seattle- Kemp and cash
Dodgers - Paxton, Ackley, Saunders, PTBNL
Seattle - Gardner
Yanks - Franklin
Seattle - Butler
KC - Mauer, Montero, wilhelmsem
Nelson Cruz 4 yr 70 million
Corey Hart 3 yr 50 million
Ervin Santana 4 yr 65 million
CF - Kemp
RF - Hart
1B - Smoak
C - Zunino
Brett Gardner is not enough for Nick Fanklin
3 yrs 50 mil for Hart lololol
So we pay Cruz to sit on the bench? I don't understand.
09 Dec 2013 05:32:01
Seattle recieves: OF Dominic Brown
Philadelphia recieves: SP Tyler Pike, SP Brandon Maurer, OF Julio Morban
Philly gets some prospects to strengthen their farm system and acquire a top talent
Seattle recieves: LHP Brett Anderson
Oakland recieves: 2 two mid level prospects, cash considerations
Billy Beane just signed Scott Kazmier and traded for Jim Johnson, he's probably looking for some prospects to develop and get some money for other areas of need
Seattle recieves: OF Matt Kemp, $40m
Los Angeles recieves: 2B Nick Franklin, SP James Paxton, 3B/OF Stefen Romero
LA has too many outfielders. They trade away kemp and the majority of his contract. In return they get three young players who are MLB ready. And Romero could play third until the Dodgers figure out a more perminet person (or maybe he shocks us and stays there). And if the Guerrero experiment fails they have the reliable Franklin to take over. And they have Paxton to fill out the last rotation spot
Sign Sp Ubaldo Jimenez to a 4 year deal worth $60m
Sign DH Kendrys Morales to a 2 year deal worth $30m
2014 Seattle Mariners (My predicted BA/HR/RBI for fun haha)
1-SS Brad Miller (. 288/8/21)
2-CF Matt Kemp (. 266/26/77)
3-2B Robinson Cano (. 328/32/115)
4-DH Kendrys Morales (. 286/24/69)
5-RF Dominic Brown (. 277/31/104)
6-3B Kyle Seager (. 257/21/75)
7-1B Justin Smoak (. 246/19/59)
8-C Mike Zunino (. 237/13/38)
9-LF Abraham Almonte (. 259/11/47)
1-RHP Felix Hernandez (20-6/2. 38)
2-RHP Ubaldo Jimenez (13-9/3. 88)
3-RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (14-8/3. 27)
4-LHP Brett Anderson (12-11/4. 20)
5-RHP Taijuan Walker (14-7/3. 71)
Philly says no thanks
I would Kemp after Cano
Swap Morban for Chris Taylor and it would be a little more fair to get Brown. But I do think Brown will be traded and the Mariners could get him if they acquire a RH Bat before they do that though
That won't strengthen the Phillies farm system, it would make it moderatly better, you know until Amaro decides to trade them.
09 Dec 2013 04:26:46
Marlins get Trumbo, Shuck
Angels get Eovaldi, Morrison, Heaney
