1. Angels have a terrible farm and don't have enough to acquire Price
2. I doubt the Rays would trade Price now that they are short on pitching.

Mets need a ss that can hit not a defensive one, and they will not just accept didi for Ike Davis and lutz like that they will need a way better ss plus on this deal everyone else gets a good take back except the mets

Possible 2014 Trade Deadline Deal

BAL-MIL

Orioles get - 3B Aramis Ramirez (to be full time DH)
Brewers get - SP Mike Wright, OF Francsico Peguero

(0)
(3)

I feel like Cruz will be Full-time DH by then. Plus Brewers are killing it and will need someone to actually play third, which Ramirez does adequately, so why trade him?

Too early to predict a deadline deal. Brewers may or may not be contenders.

LAA-TB

Angels get - SP David Price, OF Brandon Guyer
Rays get - OF JB Shuck, 1B CJ Cron, SP Mark Sappington, RP Mike Morin, SP Hunter Green

(1)
(3)

The Rays, who already have a questionable farm system, wouldn't want the Angels' - of all teams - TERRIBLE farm pieces. Makes them no better.

(2)
(1)

Well, with the Rays really short on pitching I doubt they would move Price now. They are probably really glad they didn't trade him in the offseason. Second I agree with the Rays having a questionable farm system now. They use to have someone in waiting for stuff like this but they don't.

Not sure that the Giants are the organization that the Phillies want to call if they're looking for pieces to build on. The Giants are a weak system.

Arizona receives Brett Lawrie, Daniel Norris, and Brett Cecil.

Toronto receives Didi Gregorius, Cliff Pennington, Josh Collmenter, and Gerardo Parra.

Toronto receives infield help in Pennington and Gregorius. Pennington can be serviceable at third, and Gregorius can play either second base or shortstop and will be an upgrade over Goins and/or Diaz who are horrible. Collmenter brings a solid long-relief arm and Parra brings a gold-glove defense to the Jays an opens up trade talks with other teams regarding Rasmus.

Arizona can play Lawrie at third base and move Prado to the outfield where Parra was. Cecil would bring needed relief to the worst bullpen in baseball or at least the NL.

(4)
(5)

As a d-backs fan, not only are you losing a lot of flexibility between losing Pennington, Parra, and Collmenter and you are 100% counting on the potential in Lawrie. But I'd be fine with it from a d-backs perspective. Don't know how Toronto would feel about losing their everyday third baseman.

(1)
(1)

Lawrie is of no use for the dbacks because of Prado parra and collmenter are way to valuable to the dbacks

(1)
(2)

^Collmenter looked a little less valuable after losing to the Mets.

(1)
(0)

Hey dude, Prado can play the OF if they lost Parra then Lawrie plays third. Read what the man wrote.

(1)
(0)

Prado is more valuable as an INF. As an OF, he's just okay.

LongtimeBaseballFan

(2)
(2)

On the surface, though, this trade is fair for the Blue Jays. Maybe even an overpay by the D-Backs. Maybe keep Pennington

Cubs and tigers

Cubs get: Scherzer

Tigers get: Jorge Soler, Dan Vogelbach, Matt Sczur

Tigers get something for a top pitcher and cubs have the money to resign him.

The Cubs may have the money, but does Scherzer want to wait to win.

(4)

Cubs are in win later mode.

(2)

^ if he wanted to he would have signed with the Tigers who will continue to be good. I think Scherzer is about the money

(1)

His agent, Boras, is about the money.

(1)
(0)

Why trade for him cubs can wait to sign him and keep everyone for other trades.

(1)
(0)

If I'm the Cubs, I wouldn't trade any of my top 5 hitting prospects. Between Baez, Bryant, Soler, Alcantara, and Almora, I wouldn't give any of them up for a pitcher ready for Free Agency.

(2)
(0)

Doesn't make sense for either team. CHC is in the middle of a rebuild and most likely won't field a competitive team for at least two seasons and regardless of how many years are left on Scherzer the Tigers would want 2-4 top prospects plus an additional few lower level guys. Why would a playoff team like Detroit move Scherzer anyways especially considering they just traded Fister?

Indians get: Cliff Lee
Phillies get: Trevor Bauer, Ryan Raburn, C. C. Lee, PTBNL

(7)
(12)

Not a bad trade. trevor bauer isn't a top prospect anymore so the phillies would want a little more.

(2)
(6)

Maybe. But I think the PTBNL would have to be a good prospect.

LongtimeBaseballFan

(2)
(8)

MORE!

(2)
(4)

First off it would take a lot more to get Lee. Secondly, Cleveland simply can't afford the remaining salary for Lee which alone makes this trade idea irrelevant.

I feel like Cleveland would rather keep Bauer and if a spot opens in the rotation then slot him in there instead of giving up a good prospect in CC Lee, their current DH, and a PTBNL for an expensive option like Lee.

4. Jose Bautista, RF
5. Justin Smoak, 1B
6. Corey Hart, DH

Rotation (before starters return):

5. Chris Young

Rotation (after starters return):
1. Felix Hernandez
2. Hisashi Iwakuma
3. Dillon Gee
4. James Paxton

(3)
(13)

Not even close with Bautista. Stop with this PTBNL crap. Even saying "2 PTBNL" is so lazy. Players to be named never end up being significant.

(3)
(7)

At what point did you think these where good?

(2)
(4)

Are King Felix and Taijuan Walker the PTBNLs? Blue Jays would die laughing of that offer then say no in every way possible.

Blue Jays laugh hysterically and then hang up

You know David Ortiz was a PTBNL but I guess he must not be significant to you

Seattle's infield looks like its in good shape. The bullpen looks good as well. Our Starting rotation doesn't look great now, especially with Paxton on the DL along with Iwakuma and Walker. We could also use another outfielder soon to pair with Almonte and Ackley.

Here's what I think Seattle should do

Sea-Pit

Seattle gets: OF Gregory Polanco

Pittsburgh gets: 2B Nick Franklin, SP Tyler Pike, 1B DJ Peterson

Pittsburgh loses a top prospect, but they have a very good outfield so they can afford to let him go and get some very talented prospects back. Franklin is a great player and could start over Walker (but unfortunately not Robinson Cano haha). They also get Peterson who is a home run hitting machine that can be their future everyday first baseman. Tyler Pike also will provide a solid pitcher here in a few years.


Another trade

Sea-Cle

Seattle gets: SP Justin Masterson

Cleveland gets: SP Victor Sanchez, SP Erasmo Ramirez, 2B/SS Chris Taylor

With Cleveland unable to get Masterson to sign an extension and is set to walk in free agency, Cleveland trades him and gets some value for Justin instead of him leaving and getting nothing except maybe a draft pick possibly


2014 Seattle Mariners

Lineup

1-CF Abraham Almonte
2-SS Brad Miller
3-2B Robinson Cano
4-1B Justin Smoak
5-DH Corey Hart
6-3B Kyle Seager
7-RF Gregory Polanco
8-C Mike Zunino
9-LF Dustin Ackley

Rotation

(Before Starters return)

1- RHP Felix Hernandez
2- RHP Justin Masterson
3- LHP Roenis Elias
4- RHP Brandon Mauer
5- RHP Chris Young

(After Starters return)

1- RHP Felix Hernandez
2- RHP Hisashi Iwakuma
3- RHP Justin Masterson
4- LHP James Paxton
5- RHP Taijuan Walker


With these two additions, it helps the team very much. Polanco once he is called up, will give Seattle another young Outfielder to build with along Almonte and Ackley. Polanco plays good defense and can provide a solid bat in the lineup. Justin Masterson gives the team a desperate starter they need with Iwakuma, Walker, and now Paxton all on the DL. But once they all return, Seattle will have one of the best rotations in the MLB. Iwakuma has proven he is a great pitcher, Paxton has been great in all of his starts so far through his career. And Taijuan Walker will show everyone this year what he is capable of.

(8)
(5)

I think both are not far-fetched, but neither is likely to happen either. The first is still off a bit; it would take more to get Polanco.

LongtimeBaseballFan

(6)
(2)

I think Samardzija is more of a realistic option for Seattle than Masterson at this point. Cleveland still thinks they can win now whereas the Cubs probably don't.

Indians send:
SP Trevor Bauer
OF Clint Frazier
3B Lonnie Chisenhall

Cubs send:
SP Jeff Samardizja

Am I crazy or does this not help both teams? I know Chisenhall isn't great but he's still got a lot of potential and might just need a change of scenery. Just wanna hear some feedback

Absolutely insane Indians say no

It may be crazy, but I think it will take a deal like this to move Samardjiza.

I don't really feel like Cleveland needs Samardjiza that bad. And I certainly don't see them trading a #2 and #3 prospect for him.

As a tigers fan, moya could be a power hitter he could use when hunter leaves and he has a decent arm too, coke sucks and the tigers would be lucky if they can trade him for even a game program
