I don't know if this will or could happen but
Brewers trade: Braun plus about half his contract
Giants trade: Slater 2B, Blackburn RHP, Mejia LHP, Okert LHP

Believable1 Unbelievable1

27 Aug 2015 22:08:56
This trade would never happen.

The Brewers can get better players out of the Giants system, especially if they are covering half of his contract and the Giants wouldn't take him on.

Besides, the people in Milwaukee would never go to a game again. I live in the Milwaukee area. people are still seething from the Gomez trade.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2015 00:30:07
No, won't happen. Not because of his contract being a lot (I know you have the Brewers paying some of it) but because I don't think the Giants want to bring someone in who has a bad reputation like Braun. He wouldn't fit in the Giants clubhouse, and clubhouse culture is almost as important to winning as talent is.

Yankees Ideal but Unlikely Offseason and 2016 Roster

C.C. Sabathia realizes after another terrible season and another knee injury that he doesn't have it anymore, swallows his pride and retires peacefully. (This being the ideal but unlikely part)

Trade #1

Padres get Jacob Lindgren, Slade Heathcott, Gary Sanchez, and Mason Williams

Yankees get Craig Kimbrel

Trade #2

Angels get Carlos Beltran

Yankees get cash considerations

Sign Ben Zobrist for 3 years $45 million (I will have him listed on the bench and this seems like that is a lot of money for a bench player but he will be almost an everyday player because he will be playing all over the field to give a different guy rest everyday and that's the kind of contract it will take to get him.

Sign Darren O'Day for 2 years $10 million

Resign Chris Young for 2 years $20 million

Refsnyder takes over at 2B

Judge takes over in RF

So what do you guys think?

Believable2 Unbelievable2

27 Aug 2015 15:08:23
I think you don't know what you're doing. Yes Sabathia has been awful, but he's not going to leave that money on the table without trying in spring training. No way would the Padres accept that trade, they want a young ss. They have no use for Sanchez as they have Hedges. So you have them paying Zobrist 15 mil a year only to sit on the bench? No one pays a bench player that. And I would have the Rotation like this
Tanaka
Eovaldi
Severino
Pineda
Nova

27 Aug 2015 18:07:39
How do you think the Yankees would trade Beltran to the Astros for just Cash Considerations? That's plain ridiculous and Beltran is red hot

Tigers Offseason
Sign Yoenis Cespedes 6y/185M
Trade
Dodgers get Ian Kinsler(Utley and Kendrick will probably leave)
Tigers get Yasmani Grandal, Zachary Bird
The Tigers get another catcher and let Avila walk. They also get a future P which they really need.
Projection
82-80 next year but the Tigers just need to get more money and they'll be fine by 2017 I guess
The reason for the Cespedes signing is that he is still very young and powerful and the Tigers OF would love having him

Believable3 Unbelievable3

26 Aug 2015 17:56:12
Don't think Grandal is even available at this point, that's just my opinion. Yasmani is having an great year and offensive catchers don't grow on trees. LA would probably look to either FA or in their farm system.

Agree3 Disagree0

26 Aug 2015 19:02:31
30 million for a pretty good but not great player. He does not have the numbers to justify him being one of the top paid players in baseball.

Agree1 Disagree2

26 Aug 2015 20:19:55
Yeah but Ian Kinsler is hitting in the 300s and The dodgers have a new good catcher

Cespedes is not going to get 30 million a year.

Birds a brave.

27 Aug 2015 00:03:23
No way does Cespedes get over $30M AAV.

Although, I would greatly enjoy seeing the Tigers bog themselves down with yet another ridiculous contract.

27 Aug 2015 01:06:28
Zachary Bird got traded to the Braves

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Aug 2015 14:58:16
None of this makes sense. You are not going to get a top prospect in the off season with just a older 2nd basemen. Second the Tigers need pitching and a third basemen more left handed hitting to balance out thier strong RH hitting. Cespedes says he wants to come back to Detroit no way am I going to over pay for him. I can get a good outfielder in a trade that won't cost me as much and he could be a good LH. Bullpen, SP and left handed hitting top concerns this offseason and a new manager and pitching coach.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2015 08:55:14
Potential offseason trade between the Rays and Angels. With C.J. Cron being sorta blocked behind Pujols and his massive contract, they could potentially trade him to get a bit younger and address some needs. I think Tampa should be first in line if Cron became available. Idk if this would happen irl, but it's an idea.

To Rays
1B, C.J. Cron

To Angels
LF, Desmond
1B/3B, Richie Shaffer

Considering the angles will probably lose DeJesus, Victorino, Murphy, Joyce this winter. Jennings would be a nice fit in LF. Rays also have a crowded outfield.

Believable3 Unbelievable3

26 Aug 2015 17:51:10
Also Shaffer plays 3B and 1B so if Freese leaves, Shaffer could see time at third.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Aug 2015 23:40:43
Jennings just doesn't seem to fit the power-hitter we need in left field, and while he has some pop, losing Cron makes it worst.

Alvarez is a starter, and Harang won't be a #2 starter the way he has been lately.

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Aug 2015 21:42:31
So the Marlins are going to sign Davis? I doubt it they gave Stanton 325, but I doubt they even try another 100 million plus contract.

Agree1 Disagree1

25 Aug 2015 22:59:24
I think the harang soria and ichiro moves would have the chance to be really good moves depending on how much for each. Alvarez will def be their number 2

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Aug 2015 23:29:41
J.T. Realmuto is going to be the starting catcher in Miami for a long time. If they bring in Pena, it'll be to back-up Realmuto.

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Aug 2015 23:37:22
Just an idea.

To Tampa Bay
C, Andrew Susac

To San Francisco
RHP, Nate Karns
C, Rene Rivera

I've heard a few rumblings about Karns being dealt, also Rivera would just basically replacing Susac as backup. Buster Posey isn't going anywhere and they might as well use Susac to bring in SP considering the Giants might lose some starters to FA. I could see this happening in the offseason.

Believable1 Unbelievable12

23 Aug 2015 12:57:43
Bumgarner. Heston, Peavy, and Cain are all coming back. I think they'll try and re-sign Leake and will be good.

Besides the Giants can get much better for Susac.

Agree4 Disagree2

23 Aug 2015 19:41:52
The Cardinals, Cubs, Dodgers, Mets, and Pirates are all pitching better than the Giants and are all in good position to, internally and/or externally, make their staffs even better in the off-season. Unless the Giants are going to find away to put together a KC quality bullpen, they're going to need another good starter.

I'm not saying this is the deal to make, just saying that it probably won't end well if Peavy and Cain is 2/5 of the rotation.

Agree1 Disagree2

23 Aug 2015 23:15:46
Right, but they can get a significantly better return for Susac than Nate Karns.

Agree3 Disagree1

24 Aug 2015 05:40:46
Karns is sort of underrated, low-mid 3s ERA, almost a K per 9 innings, and can hit bombs (heheh)

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Aug 2015 18:30:01
That's what I was thinking, Karns is extremely underrated.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Aug 2015 22:21:35
I think Cain could have a bounce back year next year, this year it looks like his mechanics aren't right, I guess that's to be expected since he missed most of last year and some of this year. Maybe this is wishful thinking but I feel like if he can get his mechanics back and stays healthy he'll have a great 2016

Agree1 Disagree1

25 Aug 2015 17:47:49
I think Matt Cain is done. Not done in that he'll retire, but I don't think we'll ever see 2012 Matt Cain again. I'm not sure we'll see him as bad as he is this year, but I don't believe he'll ever be elite again. I hope I'm wrong.

The Giants have mentioned they like Jordan Zimmermann, and I'd imagine they'll go for him and try to re-sign Leake.

That would move Cain to the bullpen and the Giants can use him in a Ryan Vogelsong type role. They've shown that you can never have too many starters.

Agree2 Disagree1

27 Aug 2015 00:54:44
I agree I don't think we will see 2012 Cain again but I think he will be better than this year which isn't saying a whole lot. It's a shame that a guy's career can go down so fast. I'm worried that it might happen to Madbum or Heston, Giants tend to push their pitchers too hard. Ex. Timmy and Cain

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2015 22:12:54
There are former scouts who warned the Giants that Lincecum's performance from 2008-2010 was not replicable.

As far as extending pitchers, Bumgarner is a tougher one to guess simply by his throwing motion. He uses so much of his body to make a throw, instead his arm, which is why Cain got hurt.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2015 12:53:31
After the season's over.

Detroit gets=
-Carlos Gonzalez
-Jon Gray(prospect)

Believable4 Unbelievable15

21 Aug 2015 14:50:15
doesnt make sense, Tigers won't give up JD for a guy who is almost always injured and the Rockies won't trade their best pitching prospect for uncertains.

Agree7 Disagree1

21 Aug 2015 22:15:44
J.D. Martinez for Carlos Gonzalez is a lateral move. besides, Gonzalez is owed way more than Martinez.

Off season trade
Red Sox trade: Trey Ball, Deven Marrero, and Henry Owens
Padres trade: Ross
Red Sox get their ace
Padres get two really good pitching prospects and their SS of the future

Believable8 Unbelievable7

20 Aug 2015 08:29:50
The trade works for both teams, I guess but is Ross REALLY an ace??

Agree5 Disagree2

20 Aug 2015 21:58:11
I think we is but if he's not he's a really good 2. And if they get let's say a cueto or an ace then they have a really good 1-2 in the rotation

Agree4 Disagree1

21 Aug 2015 03:23:41
I am okay with it.

Agree3 Disagree1

19 Aug 2015 19:36:42
Offseason trade:
PIT acquires: Tyson Ross SP
SD acquires: Jordy Mercer SS, Mitch Keller SP, Luis Heredia SP

Pirates get a solid starter to replace Burnett. SD gets a much needed SS, a solid pitching prospect, and an average young arm

Believable7 Unbelievable7

19 Aug 2015 22:55:18
That's nowhere near enough to get Tyson Ross. I'm not sure that would get them Andrew Cashner at this point.

Stop posting this. Its a joke. The Yankees will not sign two pitchers who will definitely get 30 million a year at 7 years. Nor will they sign Cespedes who will probably get over 100 million for 5-7 years. They have Beltran for Right Field for now, until Aaron Judge is ready. Plus A-Rod is the DH, so where is Beltran going to play? They aren't going to sign 3 players for over half a billion dollars. Again you have no clue how to put together trades. Teams don't trade that many players for relievers, regardless of whether they are a closer or not. I don't see how you are a Yankee fan if you want them to Lincecum, you must seriously not know how he is doing. Pretty terrible. There is no doubt he would get lit up in New York, even worse than he has in SF. He wouldn't even be there after 5 starts. And again they aren't going to name for top players coaches. Derek Jeter doesn't want to be a coach, he has stated he wants to own a team numerous times. Rivera I doubt he would want to a coach as well. If Tanaka does end up with TJ surgery, which in my opinion he would have already done if it was truly necessary, Luis Severino would take his spot in the rotation. And these aren't the George Steinbrenner Yankees anymore, his sons are running the show. Don't you get that they are trying to develop another young core of players with Severino, Bird, Judge, Sanchez, Mateo and others.

RP TYLER CLIPPARD or JOAKIM SORIA
C BRAYAN PENA
IF DANIEL MURPHY
IF BEN ZOBRIST

=============================================
TRADE #1: (DET - BOS - LAA)
TIGERS GETS:
SP MATT SHOEMAKER (LAA)
1B ALLEN CRAIG (BOS)
OF BROCK HOLT (BOS)

tigers get a pitcher who can be a 5th starter or even out of the bullpen and the fact he's from Michigan, craig to be insurance at 1b/of/dh coming off the bench and holt to be the multi positional player the tigers need

RED SOX GETS:
SP BUCK FARMER (DET)
IF ANDREW ROMINE (DET)
3B NICK CASTELLANOS (DET)
SP CJ WILSON (LAA)

redsox add a pitcher in farmer who throws good enough but does give a lot of ground balls and could be a good piece to the bullpen, romine would basically replace holts spot on the roster as the player who can play 2b/ss/3b/of and castellanos who would play 3B and Sandoval would move to 1B and Wilson can help the pitching staff and contribute

ANGELS GETS:
SP JOE KELLY (BOS)
SP AUSTIN KUBITZA (DET)
OF TYLER COLLINS (DET)

angels add Kelly who would replace wilsons spot in the rotation, kubitza who could potentially play with his brother who most likely would be the starting 3B and Collins who can be the LF since victorino, murphy and Dejesus are free agents and not likely to return and Collins can platoon with joyce in LF
=============================================
TRADE 2: (DET - SD - CHC)

TIGERS GETS;
RP CRAIG KIMBREL (SD)
RP JACOB TURNER (CHC)
2B JAVIER BAEZ (CHC)

tigers add the closer they need, a former top prospect and a player who would replace kinsler in the lineup and at 2B

CUBS GETS:
2B IAN KINSLER (DET)
SP JAMES SHIELDS (SD)

cubs get a veteran infielder who can help mentor Russell and Bryant and be a clubhouse leader and shields would reunite with maddon and perhaps be the backup play if the cubs don't get price in the offseason and imagine if they do, they would have lester and price and shields in the top 3 in the rotation with arrieta being the 4th starter

PADRES GETS:
IF STARLIN CASTRO (CHC)
SP SHANE GREENE (DET)
RP KYLE RYAN (DET)
RP JOE JIMENEZ (DET)
OF STEVEN MOYA (DET)

padres add a piece that could be missing in the infield with castro and the fact he's still in his early 20s, greene still is young enough and controllable enough that he can provide good pitching, ryan can help too, jimenez is good enough to be the closer and Moya can finally start on the padres since upton is most likely gone

MLB TIGERS OFFSEASON NEEDS

- BACKUP VETERAN CATCHER
- OUTFIELD
- 2 STARTING PITCHERS
- BETTER HITTING THIRD BASEMEN
- BULLPEN, BULLPEN, BULLPEN AND MORE BULLPEN
- MULTI-POSITIONAL PLAYER

(1) VETERAN BACKUP CATCHER
the free agency is the perfect place to get this need cause there is Brayan pena (former tiger), aj pierzynski and dioner Navarro if you want a backup catcher but if you want a starter then get matt wieters (but I think he's going back to BAL)

(2) OUTFIELD
there are a lot of target to go after in free agency with players like yoenis cespedes, justin upton, alex Gordon, Jason heyward and even Austin Jackson can help but if you go thru the trade market, with players like matt kemp, hanley Ramirez, jay bruce, ryan braun, carlos Gonzalez or yasuil puig

(3) STARTING PITCHERS
well the free agent market is stacked this year with this spot and the tigers do have money to go crazy this offseason and go after johnny cueto, Zach grienke, doug fister, mike leake or mat latos as a top 3 rotation type pitchers but the tigers need an ace since price is gone, verlander is starting to crumble and sanchez ain't that so cueto or grienke can be that and there are plently in the trade market

(4) THIRD BASEMAN
well castellanos is not the answer for the tigers but he still holds value in the trade market to go after a good hitting 3B since the free agent market doesn't have that

(5) BULLPEN
well the tigers clearly need a lot of bullpen help and the tigers can do that with signing joakim soria, tyler clippard, tommy hunter, Antonio bastardo or tony sip or go aquire someone like aroldis chapman or craig kimbrel as the corner stone to the bullpen

(6) MULTI-POSITIONAL PLAYER
well zobrist is the guy to try to get or try to trade for martin prado but you save a lot more to get zobrist

I don't see Detroit going after any of the big named starters. They have so many bloated contracts as it is already, they need to wait for some to expire before adding on more.

I see Detroit maybe trying to sign one big name FA pitcher, more chance of spending money on their Bull Pen, and probably getting a Big Time LF or RF and move JD to LF.

Dombrowski is gone. The Tigers will go with a metric-minded GM who will wait out the bloated contracts. I can't see them spending a ton more than they are now.

Hutchison was just DFA'd. the Blue Jays will have to give up a lot more for the Padres to throw in cash on the Shields trade.

Agree2 Disagree2

He was not DFA'd he was sent (optioned) to the minors, big difference.

Agree4 Disagree2

19 Aug 2015 16:01:38
slight difference. DFA means he was out of options, but the reason for it was the same: he's performing horribly.

Only difference: he doesn't have to pass through waivers.

Agree0 Disagree1

He's 12-2. He was sent down because of the schedule, he would get more time on the mound down in AAA. His last few starts have been very good.

Agree1 Disagree2

19 Aug 2015 22:56:31
He had an ERA above 5.

People who use win-loss records to justify pitcher talent have no business talking about pitcher talent.

THE TIGERS NEED A NEW COACHING STAFF NOW BEFORE ITS TOO LATE



TIGERS COACHING CHANGES:
MANAGER :
IVAN RODRIGUEZ
(one of the most beloved TIGERS ever)

he should've been the hire to never coach in a pro level then ausmus and pudge is loved by every tigers fan cause he helped the tigers return to a top talented team and he can do the same as a manager

HITTING :
OMAR VIZQUEL
(promotion from 1st base coach)

hes the only coach on the team i'd keep cause he is a huge mentor to Iglesias and having him on the team can help in so many levels and adding him as hitting coach from 1st base coach would give him a better job and can help the tigers as a hitting ooach

PITCHING:
DOUG HENRY
(KC bullpen coach)

well I think you go and get a coach that is involved with the best bullpen in the game and promote him to pitching coach cause he can help the tigers in both capacities pitching and bullpen

1ST BASE:
PLACIDO POLANCO
(wants to be a coach)

he wanted to be a coach and his playing career is most likely over, so a coaching career is going to start very soon and adding him to the tigers can help

3RD BASE:
TIM RAINES or VINCE COLEMAN
(someone who is a smart base runner)

the tigers need a smart base runner and adding either of the 2 top base runners ever can help the tigers get better as base runners

BENCH :
KIRK GIBSON
(currently sick but can help thru leadership)

he loves being a coach and he can move back into the dugout and be a bench coach, if he does well then he can get another manager job and having him on the team can show the team is wanting a better coached team

Joyner has not done a bad job with the hitters so no their. Vizquel if he stays has more of a chance to be the manager then the hitting coach. Rodriguez has never managed at any level just like Aumus hadn't. Yes he was a very good player doesn't mean he will be a good manager. Tim Raines hasn't managed third base that I could find neither Vince Coleman. Your just grabbing names of good player you think can manage or coach. THree Managers for you that never had an impact in the MLB as a player Sparky, Lasorda, Earl Weaver.
