Rangers get: Shelby Miller, Phil Gosselin

Diamondbacks get: Jurickson Profar

High risk, high reward on both ends of the deal. Miller was very valuable last offseason. Besides 2016, he has been a solid mid-rotation starter the rest of his career. After a miserable season, the Dbacks look to get something in return for him.

The Rangers gamble that 2016 was a fluke and that he will bounce back to help their rotation. Profar isn't near as valuable now either after not delivering during his short time in the majors. The Dbacks gamble that Profar will wind up being the player people thought he'd be when he was a top prospect and help fill Segura's void.

White Sox and NY Mets

Mets Get:
David Robertson RP/ CP

White Sox Get:
Brandon Nimmo OF
Ricardo Cespedes OF

Mets get solid closer to finish games until the Familia situation is resolved - then he can slide into setup with A. Reed.

Nimmo is blocked - Mets have abundance of solid OFers.

Kinda doubt Cespedes gets move for Robertson but I may be really wrong

There is another player in the Mets minor leagues with the last name Cespedes.

White Sox and Yankees

Yankees get:
Todd Fraizer 3B/ 1B

White Sox get:
Miguel Andujar 3B
Jordan Montgomery LHP
Chase Headley 3B

Yankees get Todd who can play 3B regularly and maybe play some 1st if G. Bird struggles against lefties. Also tremendous clubhouse guy w/ good power for Yankee Stadium.

Sox take back Headley for money purposes but he can also play 3B for a couple years while Andujar develops.

As a yankee I would do it, but as a whitesox I wouldn't. Frazier is worth much more than that even if its only for a year

I'm not sure that the Giants would want to deal with Cabrera again after his 50 game PED suspension while he was there the first time.

White Sox and SF

Giants Get:
Melky Cabrera OF

White Sox Get:
Steven Duggar OF
Rodolfo Martinez RHP

Sox can eat some of $$$.
Don't tell me Cabrera Sucks (strong/ accurate arm and look at hitting stats) - godd switch hitter for SF lineup and LF

Sorry, meant to put this here the first time. But I don't think the Giants would want to deal with Cabrera again after he was suspended for PED use while he was there the first time.

You relly think that would deter them from bringing him back?

Interesting. You really think that would deter them from going after him?

Rockies and White Sox

Colorado Gets:
Jose Quintana SP
David Robertson CP

White Sox Get:
Brenden Rodgers SS
Raimel Tapia OF
German Marquez SP
Tom Murphy C
Brian Mundell 1B

I don't see why this wouldn't work. Yeah, you can tell me Colorado doesn't want to deal for a SP simply because of their ballpark, but if they get a guy like Q, they can be really good. Plus they get a (not elite) but absolutely solid Closer.

Rodgers and Tapia are pretty much blocked.

Sox get elite prospect in Rodgers. Tapia, Murphy and Marquez can all start the year in the Majors.

New to this site. Thought I'd give it a try.

Indians get Billy Hamilton
Reds get Brady Aiken, Francisco Mejia, Greg Allen

Indians get another speedster and a permanent CF. Reds get top prospects to build around.

Believable5 Unbelievable16

20 Jan 2017 19:24:09
WAY TOO MUCH for Hamilton.

Agree7 Disagree2

20 Jan 2017 19:56:08
Don't think the Indians do it. With naquin playing his first full season in the majors this year and Zimmer close to making his way to the majors, don't think they would give up that much for an outfielder.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Jan 2017 21:30:31
Good insight Jolkti

Keep in mind that Naquin was bad in CF. Really bad. Hamilton was really good.

With Brantley's injury history and Chisenhall being inconsistent, there would be plenty of chances for Naquin to play in LF and RF.

Agree3 Disagree2

21 Jan 2017 05:04:50
Solid first post! I think the tribe gives up a bit too much, but welcome to the club of a-holes who make baseball personal and argue about whip and 20 year old prospects all while avoiding our day jobs.

Agree7 Disagree3

21 Jan 2017 15:16:57
Not a bad idea at all. Hamilton would fit into Cleveland's style of play from last year, while helping the pitching with his defense. It may be too much, but none of us are the Cleveland GM, right?

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Jan 2017 09:01:13
I think its a fair price for Hamilton but do u think the Indians would do it? No i really don't think there's a chance. Mejia is not going anywhere.

Rangers are suddenly in the need for a power left-handed setup man with Jake Diekman out

Detroit: Connor Sadzeck and Drew Robinson

Texas: Justin Wilson

Believable2 Unbelievable14

20 Jan 2017 03:19:14
Nah. Detroit is going to compete with Cleveland for the AL Central title this year.

20 Jan 2017 16:52:25
I kind of agree with red sox. I think the tigers will hold Wilson until the deadline. They want to try to contend.

The Orioles probably do not have a roster to finish in the top 2-3 in the AL East this year. They have one of the worst farm systems in baseball (25th) so they also do not have the pieces to be able to make a trade in July. They would be wise to start thinking about the possibility of trading Britton to rebuild the system. Their biggest system needs are quality future rotation pieces and outfielders.
If the Nationals could acquire Britton, I think it puts them over the top and makes them the favorite to win the NL. They've already shown to be all-in this offseason.

Nationals get: Zach Britton LHP

Orioles get: Joe Ross RHP, Victor Robles OF (Nats #1, MLB #10), Erick Fedde RHP (Nats #2, MLB #75), Nick Banks OF (Nats #8)

Too much for a closer, IMO.

19 Jan 2017 12:59:39
The Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller trades say otherwise, as does the Kimbrel trade, something you should know about Red Sox guy.

Agree8 Disagree4

19 Jan 2017 13:05:45
You must hate the Nats

Agree10 Disagree1

19 Jan 2017 14:29:13
the Nats just overpaid for Eaton I do not see them giving up this much and completely ruining their farm system. I see them going after a cheap reliable guy like Greg Holland who is a FA or maybe even someone like Steve Ceshick or Brad Boxburger. They would not cost a top prospect and can get the job done. Yes I understand that people would much rather have a supper star on their team but the cost is too much I am someone who prefers to get someone cheaper who can get the job done and be able to keep my prospects. Robles is going to be very useful for the Nats very soon, either when Werth retires and or Harper leaves they are going to need him to step up and fill that role. that's my thinking behind all of this and it is my thinking behind the Dodgers second base search as well.

Agree8 Disagree1

19 Jan 2017 14:43:54
Jeez I wouldn't think the Nats would have to give up Ross AND Robles. I could see a deal revolving around one of them, but jeez not both.

Agree5 Disagree1

19 Jan 2017 17:26:52
As we've seen with the Miller and Chapman trade, it will take a lot to get a premium closer. Especially one coming off arguably the best season in the last decade. The Cubs gave up their top prospect, a swing man, and 2 other prospects towards the top of their system for a half season of Chapman. You get multiple years of Britton, therefore requiring giving up much more. You could maybe tweak the Banks for a lower prospect, but it takes near this much IMO.

Agree3 Disagree1

20 Jan 2017 03:20:36
I agree that it would take a lot to get a top closer. And I didn't say that it was unfair. I am saying, from the Nationals' perspective, that is too much to give up.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Jan 2017 14:48:33
Don't have the roster to finish 2-3 in the AL East are you joking? They're basically the same team as last year, the only team in the East that improved was the Red Sox! Toronto is aging and doubtful their rotation can produce similar results, Yankees while they added Chapman have huge question marks in rotation, also when the had Chapman last year they weren't that competitive now they don't have Miller so even less so. This is a team that's been told for years that they won't do well yet they've exceeded expectations, I very much expect this team to be a 85-90 win team challenging the Sox for the AL East title

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Jan 2017 16:58:23
They could very well make the playoffs as a wild card. However, what can they do in the playoffs? They don't have an ace. They've shown that they won't advance past the ALDS. If they want to stay where they are at, fine don't trade anyone. But they will regret that come a few years from now when they are still only a slightly above average team and have no quality prospects. The Chris Davis contract will hurt them for years to come. If they want to resign Machado also when he eligible for free agency, they will practically have no money to build a roster around him.

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Jan 2017 17:40:01
If they wouldn't do that for McCutchen they wouldn't do it for Britton

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Jan 2017 22:23:38
Tillman is very much an ace he's underrated and has been one of the best pitchers in the AL East for the past 5 seasons. IMO last year the O's could've very well made the ALCS if they pitched Britton in the wildcard, they were a better team than Texas for sure. They have 2 years left to contend, they have a Chance to be title contenders

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Jan 2017 15:18:33
When I think ace, I don't think Tillman.

Washington would be better off signing Holland and keeping those prospects for a future move.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Jan 2017 18:20:00
Well then this gives the Nats the worst Farm in the majors. Britton is a special player, but I think Robles has a good chance to become REALLY good.

Long shot deal for dodgers second base opening

Texas: Jose De Leon

Los Angeles: Jurickson Profar and Eric Jenkins

Believable17 Unbelievable10

18 Jan 2017 13:39:47
Why would the Dodgers trade De Leon for Profar and Jenkins. Had Profar not been injured for 2 seasons and had more games in the majors to his name, maybe he could net a top prospect, but not now.

Agree6 Disagree6

18 Jan 2017 21:31:19
Profar has very little value now, nowhere near enough to be part of a deal for a player like De Leon unless he is a third or fourth player added as a filler

Agree4 Disagree2

20 Jan 2017 18:50:39
I wonder if the Tigers can try to get Profar in a deal involving JD

Since Jay Bruce to Toronto doesn't seem promising any more here's a trade with the Giants.

Giants get Jay Bruce
Mets get Bryan Reynolds, Steven Dugger, and Rodolfo Martinez

Believable1 Unbelievable16

16 Jan 2017 17:30:48
Mets would be lucky to get Dugger or Martinez. No shot they get Reynolds.
They probably can get a teams 10th best prospect and a lower level guy.

Agree1 Disagree6

16 Jan 2017 19:01:55
I think they could do this because the window to sign someone else is closing and this might be one of the better options left.

Agree1 Disagree3

17 Jan 2017 03:25:40
Mets need to deal Bruce just to get rid of his salary. Anything back is a plus. Anything.
