you make it look so easy.

Agree2 Disagree1

05 Aug 2015 08:36:54
They'll spend a lot more money than this. They've got $50M or so coming off the books. Leake will command way more money. He's only 27 and is a very good #2 or #3 candidate. Ervin Santana got, what, $14M or so? He'll get more than Ervin.

I wouldn't be shocked to see the Giants let Aoki walk. His injury certainly made it more likely that they could. besides, Upton or Cespedes or even Heyward could be more attractive options to get younger and get more power.

As far as relievers go, they'll find someone. I don't know if McGee fits the mold of what SF needs. I wouldn't be shocked if they just give the role to Hunter Strickland and save a lot of money, or they just pick up the option on Casilla and see what comes of it.

As far as the bench goes, don't expect them to do too much. Rodriguez and Stubbs are just wild guesses. it could literally be anybody. or it could be no one brought in, just people brought up. Adrianza, Tomlinson, Brandon Hicks, Kevin Frandsen, Jarrett Parker. lots of options.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2015 08:37:29
You can never predict what the Giants will do in the offseason. They could spend tons of money, or they could make quiet signings like they did with Aoki.

Zack Greinke 18-5 2.71 ERA

Luis Severino 12-10 4.12 ERA 188K

Believable1 Unbelievable8

03 Aug 2015 18:54:54
So I don't know what to make of this. I doubt Grienke happens because the Yankees are already paying 2 pitchers 25 million or more, a 3rd is doubtful. You say no trades, but where's Sabathia and Beltran? There is no need to sign Gregorious to an extension because he is arbitration eligible. So that can give Mateo time. I don't know if you have Judge and Refsynder confused or what, because Judge is the power hitter.

Agree2 Disagree1

03 Aug 2015 21:04:58
I don't think the Yankees will add about a quarter of a billion dollars, I don't think any pitcher will get 40 million per year, will Grienke get 200M? Absolutely maybe more but longer at like 6 or 7. I agree 100% with BATMAN! Plus in my opinion Didi sucks so

If there is a definition of a complete homer post, this one takes the cake. Good grief.

The Phillies trade Chase Utley to the Cubs for Billy McKinney. The Phillies trade Chase Utley to the Angels for Trevor Gott and Kody Eaves.

Utley isn't worth Mckinney

Phillies won't get much of anything for Chase Utley right now.

the Phillies trade Aaron Harang to the Pirates for prospect Yeudy Garcia.

Believable8 Unbelievable0

03 Aug 2015 16:45:24
With AJ Burnett possibly being out for the year pirates need to make a waiver trade.
PIT acquires: Ian Kennedy SP
SD acquires: Luis Heredia SP
I know they have JA Happ but I'm not sure I trst him that much

Believable6 Unbelievable1

03 Aug 2015 22:49:18
A team with a worse record would get the rights to trade for Kennedy long before Pittsburgh got it. Kennedy would be a solid add for a handful of teams in playoff contention.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2015 07:04:23
In the offseason for my angels

Its a long long shot but.

Angels sign David Price 6/150

Angels trade Hector Santiago to the Cubs for Javier Baez and Billy McKinney

Believable3 Unbelievable8

03 Aug 2015 08:48:55
As far as David price he'll get 6 or 7 yearsand 210 million for sure I don't see them trading Santiago since Wilson could be done for the year

Agree3 Disagree0

03 Aug 2015 05:56:36
Cubs: Chase Utley, Cash
Phillies: Matt Szczur

Phillies eat a huge chunk of his contract and Cubs get playoff experience on a young team

Believable10 Unbelievable3

Phillies won't eat any of Utley's contract. You want him, you pay him.

Agree0 Disagree3

31 Jul 2015 20:36:09
Padres trade: Kimbrel, casher or Ross
Yankees trade: Jorge Mateo SS, Jacob Lindren LHP, Ian Clarkin LHP, Dustin Fowler OF
Padres get their future SS, future closer, future 2, and a good defensive CF
Yankees get one of the best closers in the game and best bullpens, and a guy who is a number 2.
I understand that Clarkin hasn't played a game but the upside is worth it

Believable1 Unbelievable8

31 Jul 2015 23:00:24
That package would not be close to enough for the Yankees to get all those pieces

Agree3 Disagree2

01 Aug 2015 06:33:24
Not all three but kimbrel, and Ross OR Cashner

Agree2 Disagree1

01 Aug 2015 22:45:59
No. it wouldn't get them Kimbrel. San Diego has made it plain and clear they aren't moving Kimbrel.

Agree2 Disagree3

02 Aug 2015 13:38:29
Preller seems to be a crazy man. He was trying to trade a lot of players, asking a lot. Yankees were willing to put Mateo in a trade, but then he said no and they were going for the playoffs.

Agree2 Disagree1

02 Aug 2015 20:17:53
Even though I don't like the Padres I love preller, he's the type of gm i'd want to Benoit only does he make big moves but he sticks by them, not something a whole lot of gms still do

Agree0 Disagree2

03 Aug 2015 16:22:57
i don't think the padres ever really wanted mateo. they need a SS but then again mateo is still a couple of years away and what good will that do for them now with this current roster.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2015 08:41:53
^^^Getting anything in their farm system right now is better than nothing.

Seriously, I don't think I've ever seen a GM kill a team as fast as Preller did.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 17:15:34
A few Angels trade ideas for the deadline:

1. CJ Wilson for Starlin Castro

The Cubs get rotation depth and can pair Russel and Baez in the middle infield for the foreseeable future. The Angels trade rotation depth to try and buy low on what could be a significant upgrade at 2B.

2. Nick Tropeano for Chris Johnson/Julio Teheran

The Braves continue to dump bad contracts but get a very good prospect who can fill in for Teheran right away. The Angels get Teheran to add to their young pitching core next to Richards, Heaney, Newcombe, etc.

3. CJ Cron for Jake McGee

The Rays get a big bat in the middle of the order who is cost controlled. The Angels get much needed bullpen depth.

Believable5 Unbelievable8

31 Jul 2015 19:42:31
Everyone of these favor the Angels so heavily.

Terehan AND Chris Johnson for Tropeano. Why would ATL do that? Terehan is young and controlled and has proven he can pitch in the majors. Tropeano is a prospect.

Cron is a DH at best and McGee is a very good releiver. Would take a lot mroe for him.

Finally, Castro for Wilson would never work. Wilson has a bad contract and Castro although having a bad year, is worth more than that.

Agree5 Disagree2

31 Jul 2015 20:37:47
These are terrible.

Agree3 Disagree2

31 Jul 2015 14:10:04
Trades I think will go down today

NYM) Jay Bruce (Cash)
CIN) Zach Wheeler

Buster Onley said "Bruce to the Mets is something to keep an eye on in the next 20 hours" last night. The Mets have to make a move after the debacle that happened with Gomez. Cincy offered Bruce for Wheeler straight up, but I don think the Mets accept that. They will request another player or cash. This trade should happen today.

HOU) Tyson Ross and Craig Kimbrel
SD) Mark Appel, Vincent Valasquez, Colin Moran and Tony Kemp

Reports are "something big" is going to happen between HOU and SD. My guess is it's more than just Kimbrel or Ross; I think its both. HOU has picked up Kazmir and Gomez and seem to be going for it. Ross is controlled for a few years and Kimbrel is the best closer in the game. Giving up Appel might be tough, but if they're going for it, I can't count it out.

BAL) Gerardo Parra
MIL) Zach Davies and Trey Mancini

The Orioles have been linked to Parra for a few days. They're in need of an outfielder and Parra would be a good one to get. He can leadoff and let Machado slide to the 2 hole.

SD) Francelis Montas, Micker Adolfo and Chris Beck
CHW) Justin Upton

The White Sox recently became "buyers" and are searching for a bat. Upton will be moved and the White Sox should be all over it if they can get him. He would give them the middle of the order hitter to pair with Abreu.

ARI) Aroldis Chapman
CIN) Aaron Blair, Brandon Drury and Cory Reed

Arizona received a huge TV contract in the offseason. They have shown they're going to spend and compete. They have a good group of position players and some young arms in their system. Chapman would solidify the bullpen and set them up for a run next season. I believe the D-Backs will be major players in the offseason.

TOR) Yovanni Gallardo
TEX) Anthony Alford and Conner Greene

The Blue Jays are said to be still looking for a few more pieces. Gallardo is having a very good season and could easily become the #2 behind Price. Texas replaces some of the damage from the Hamels trade and picks up players for an upcoming FA.

Padres trade: Ross
Astros trade: Jake Marisnick, J.D. Davis 3B, Joe Musgrove RHP, Reymin Guduan LHP

Believable3 Unbelievable7

31 Jul 2015 15:11:11
Marisnick will be one piece, not the main piece.

Agree3 Disagree2

31 Jul 2015 05:06:47
Angels Get: 2B/SS Javier Baez, 3B Mike Olt, RHP Jacob Turner

Cubs Get: LHP Hector Santiago

The Angels get the power bat that they need than can play the middle infield or DH, and some more depth. The Cubs get a pitcher with an ERA of 2.43, which is affordable for the Angels to lose with Weaver coming back and Tropeano is also ready.

Believable5 Unbelievable12

31 Jul 2015 14:17:10
Turner is not worth anything. He is never healthy and hasn't pitched more than 50 inninigs in 3 years. Olt is a AAA player at most. The Angels aren't giving up an All-Star pitcher for this package. Baez has yet to prove he can hit anywher other than the minors.

Agree2 Disagree2

31 Jul 2015 15:12:00
You're an Angels fan and want this to happen? I guess crazier things have been said and done.

Agree3 Disagree2

31 Jul 2015 17:27:34
Also, saying that a sub-3 ERA is affordable to lose is absolutely ridiculous. Unless you have 6 starters with sub-3 ERAs (no one has that), a sub-3 ERA isn't suddenly "disposable"

Agree2 Disagree2

31 Jul 2015 05:05:05

Mets receive: Jay Bruce, Zack Cozart, cash, ptbnl

Reds receive: Wilmer Flores, Zack Wheeler, Desmond Lindsay

Believable6 Unbelievable10

31 Jul 2015 13:38:23
Quite a few things wrong here. Cozart is out for the year so why would the Mets want him? Desmond Lindsay was just drafted in June and can't be traded yet. Third the Mets wouldn't deal Flores after he cried (jk), but the first two were serious.

Bruce for Wheeler and Ivan Wilson makes sense.

Agree7 Disagree1

31 Jul 2015 05:00:58

Believable2 Unbelievable13

31 Jul 2015 12:43:57
Gray isn't available, the Red Sox are sellers it would make sense for them.

Agree2 Disagree1

31 Jul 2015 16:26:19
The trade would be similar to that of Cole Hamels to Texas and Gray is young and under control for a long time, making Boston a possibility. Plus Boston has top-tier prospects to spare at positions with long term fixtures on their big club, allowing them to give Oakland a bundle of prospects for an offer they can't refuse

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Jul 2015 21:01:47
