So the Rangers are going to spend around $400M this offseason?

Agree5 Disagree4

03 Sep 2017 14:14:39
I was going to take out J. D. Martinez but I forgot and put Ronald Guzman at 1st and Jose Trevino on the bench.

Agree1 Disagree4

03 Sep 2017 14:17:33
I mean not Guzman at first I meant Rua is in left and Put Trevino on the bench.

If the Rangers are going to spend that kind of money then instead sign Arrieta and Darvish as SP and Tony Watson as closer.

The Tigers should do a mini rebuild but not full blown.

Try to trade Verlander and Kinsler to get major league ready prospects

maybe try to trade Castellanos too

Sanchez will be given $5 million as part of a buyout.

But i feel Victor needs to retire..due to having 2 irregular hearbeats stints to the DL but should be added to the coaching staff in a staff rebuild. Which i feel that Vizquel needs to be manager while Victor takes over hitting (can help cut down strikeouts for the team)

VMart won't leave money on the table. Blame Ilitch and Dombrowski for giving him money this late in his career.

Agree7 Disagree4

28 Aug 2017 18:54:59
If it threatens his post-baseball life, he may have to. plus he most likely will still get his $18 million

The Tigers can pay him a 6 yr $18 million deal to be part of the coaching staff or front office

I believe they can stretch that $18 million over time just like the NBA. not sure but if they do, they can do that.

Agree4 Disagree3

28 Aug 2017 20:05:01
what if Martinez doesn't want to be a coach or in the front office.

Agree2 Disagree2

28 Aug 2017 23:40:57
"If it threatens his post-baseball life, he may have to. plus he most likely will still get his $18 million"

Or, he'll just remain injured and collect on the money, much like Prince Fielder. He's not going to leave money on the table, at all.

Yeah, let's lock in an 18-year-old 3B, who hasn't played a single game above High-A ball, and has never played 1B as a professional ballplayer, let's take him and slot him into the 1B role when he'll be 20 years old.

Vladdy Jr. won't be making his debut that early, and if he does, it won't be until mid-to-late 2019.

First Tellez, now Guerrero.

Trade I see making sense in the offseason
A's trade: Khris Davis
Giants trade: Andrew Suarez, Aramis Garcia, Austin Slater

Believable4 Unbelievable13

16 Aug 2017 04:08:23
I can't see the Athletics trading anyone to the Giants, let alone a cheap, controllable outfielder.

Agree9 Disagree2

16 Aug 2017 11:35:38
Totally see where you're coming from but Davis isn't going to help the A's compete any time soon. Davis is 29 I believe and not a whole lot of teams have a need for a power hitter with low average and Giants biggest holes are a power hitter and a left fielder Davis fills both.

Agree4 Disagree9

16 Aug 2017 15:28:42
The Giants also rank dead last in outfield defense. The last thing they need is to trade for a guy who ranks among the 5 worst defensive outfielders in baseball.

Agree8 Disagree3

15 Aug 2017 17:15:08
I kinda wanna look at some off-season trades so and I know some may seem unlikely.

Braves trade: Luiz Gohara, Joey Wentz, Austin Riley
Marlins trade: Dan Straily

O's trade: Britton
Dodgers trade: Yadier Alvarez, Yusniel Diaz, Gavin Lux

Padres trade: Brad Hand
Astros trade: JB Bukauskas, David Paulino, Jorge Alcala

O's trade: Manny Machado
Braves trade: Ozzie Albies, Mike Soroka, Ian Anderson, Travis Demeritte, Touki Toussaint

Explanations
First trade Marlins are likely going to trade Straily and Braves are looking for controllable starters I also feel the Braves will make the jump the contender status next year

Second trade: I believe O's will realize they can't compete and sell their 2 biggest pieces I believe the Astros will want to keep their top prospects and will settle, Dodgers get probably the best righty lefty duo in the majors.

Third trade: Like I said I believe the Astros will settle and the Padres will have to too, they still get a top 100 prospect along with 2 interesting arms.

Last trade: to sum up what I've said O's rebuild Braves contend Braves I think will have a great chance to bring machado back

Believable7 Unbelievable11

16 Aug 2017 15:33:17
Straily trade: not anywhere close to enough. Straily still has 3-4 years of control as a SP and is very good. It'll take a lot more to bring him to any team.

Britton trade: too much from the Dodgers' perspective. They won't trade their top farm guys for a luxury, which Britton is, thanks to Jansen.

Hand trade: not enough. Padres want to be blown away for him. This won't do it.

Machado: too much. Machado's value has tanked, while he'll still pull a strong trade, it won't be this much.

Agree3 Disagree7

18 Aug 2017 03:00:27
Machado is a top 10 player.

Agree5 Disagree6

18 Aug 2017 20:55:58
Right now? Not even close.
Next year? Perhaps.

But you don't buy stock at tomorrow's price. You buy it on today's. If Machado is traded, it'll be when he picks it up again.

Yankees Future

2017 Offseason

NYY- Kyle Schwarber
CHC- Dellen Betances

This trade makes too much sense for me. Schwarber needs to be a DH and Yankee stadium is perfect for his LH power. Betances is in the final year of his contract (2018) and will command more money than the Yankees will be willing to spend on another RP.

NYY- Jacob deGrom
NYM- Starlin Castro, Estavan Florial, Miguel Andjuar, Dillon Tate

The Mets are starting to look like a team destine to rebuild. deGrom will be a FA following the 2019 season and would net a great return for the Mets. The Yankees have a deep farm and could use a top starter that's under control for the 18 and 19 seasons.

NYY- Tyrell Jenkins
SD- Jacoby Ellsbury ($31 million -50% of contract remaining)

The Yankees have to do what they can to get out of the Ellsbury contract. The Padres have very few players locked in long term and could afford the $10 million a year for Ellsbury over the next 3 years. It would make sense for both teams to consider.

2018 moves
LF Bryce Harper 10 years $420 million
3B Manny Machado 10 years $385 million

The Yankees have enough young players to allow them to afford Harper and Machado while the young guys (Judge, Sanchez, Frazier, Torres, Adams, Severino, Montgomery) are still under team control. They will be able to field the best team in the league for quite a run.

2019 Roster

C- Gary Sanchez
1B- Greg Bird
2B- Gleyber Torres
3B- Manny Machado
SS- Didi Gregorius
LF- Bryce Harper
CF- Clint Frazier
RF- Aaron Judge
DH- Kyle Schwarber

SP- Jacob deGrom
SP- Sonny Gray
SP- Luis Severino
SP- Jordan Montgomery
SP- Chance Adams

SU- Tommy Kanhle
CL- Aroldis Chapman

This is all obviously hypothetical, but I honestly feel that the Yankees will do something along these lines to ensure they're putting out the best team possible while their young core is under control. This team would easily be the top team in the league with players locked up for another few years. I think the Yankees will get back to spending and being the top team in the MLB for the foreseeable future.

Believable9 Unbelievable13

09 Aug 2017 22:29:16
Seriously, these are terrible. The Mets aren't going to hand over deGrom for that cheap. It's going to cost the Yankees a massive premium.

Agree10 Disagree3

10 Aug 2017 00:04:49
The Yanks won't get deGrom for that package - it would take lots more. It would take more than a reliever to get Schwarber. As for Harper and Machado, the Yanks could get one, but won't get both.

Agree6 Disagree3

10 Aug 2017 03:41:40
Yeah, I agree with thestatbook, those trades all seem to favor the Yanks, especially the degrom one. And I don't see any team, even the yankees, shelling out 800 mil in one offseason for two players.

Agree5 Disagree4

10 Aug 2017 05:09:14
No one wants ellsbury I think that's the worst trade on here because Jenkins isn't awful, believe he was the other player involved in the heyward and Miller deal and plus all these other deals the opposing team to the yanks get screwed.

Agree4 Disagree4

31 Aug 2017 17:12:21
I don't think Yankees wanna sign hitters to big contracts anymore. Reason for the young bats. They need to use that money on legit ace pitchers. They have the bats they just need to get mlb experience. Of course sign cheaper hitters at $18 per year just not $40+ per.

Agree1 Disagree1

Two Wild Card Contenders Help Each Other Out

Mariners get Brett Gardner

Yankees get Felix Hernandez


The Mariners get a much better option in CF and a lead off hitter with pop in Gardner who could also provide veteran leadership while cutting salary in half and for one less year.

The Yankees get a veteran starter who knows how to pitch for their postseason run once he returns from the DL and would be a nice replacement for Sabathia next year as an innings eater. They have too many outfielders as it is and Ellsbury's contract is unmovable so Gardner is the odd man out. They can afford to take on his contract with A-Rod, Sabathia, and possibly Tanaka's money coming off the books after this year.


Who says no?

Believable1 Unbelievable13

09 Aug 2017 17:15:02
Felix Hernandez is out the next 3-4 weeks. this does nothing to help the Yankees. Once again bwright not well thought out.

Agree5 Disagree3

09 Aug 2017 17:51:32
I know he's out 3-4 weeks. I said when he gets back and also next year.

Regardless, do you think the value is fair for both teams?

Agree1 Disagree4

09 Aug 2017 18:14:30
No not all. Felix isn't the same pitcher he used to be. The Yankees are getting younger and he no longer fits them. Next year they have Gray, Severino, and Montgomery. I don't think Tanaka opts out after this horrible year he is having. I think they sign someone to bridge them to when Chance Adams is ready.

Agree5 Disagree2

09 Aug 2017 18:30:29
Fair enough. I appreciate the constructive criticism.

Agree3 Disagree2

08 Aug 2017 21:27:58

That Yelich trade HAS to be a joke, right?

Agree12 Disagree6

08 Aug 2017 17:36:48
AJ are not paying attention to anything? Yankees aren't going to need Yelich, they have Judge, Gardner, Hicks, Frazier, and Ellsbury (who will probably not be there next year) . Not to mention a plethora of outfielders in the minors.

Agree8 Disagree2

08 Aug 2017 18:51:54
^included in said plethora is Estevan Florial. With Frazier, Judge and Hicks they honestly won't have a need for Schwarber either.

Betances provides much more value to a playoff team than Schwarber anyways.

Agree8 Disagree2

08 Aug 2017 22:10:35
The other point is that Yelich is going to cost a team WAY more than this. He's young and controllable, as well as ridiculously good. Start with a top 10 prospect, and add from there.

Agree6 Disagree4
