Rest of Yankees Offseason

Trade

Angels get Brett Gardner, Michael Pineda, Ivan Nova, Gary Sanchez, Rob Refsnyder, James Kaprielian, Ian Clarkin, Luis Cessa, and Slade Heathcott

Yankees get Garrett Richards

The Angels fill their LF/ Lefty Hitting/ Leadoff whole with a reasonable contract and fill their wholes at C and 2B with young studs as both are ranked by MLB as top 10 prospects at their positions. They also get Pineda and Nova for rotation pieces now and Kaprielian for the future. They can spare Richards with the additions of Pineda and Nova as well as already having Heaney, Santiago, Wilson, Weaver, Shoemaker, Skaggs, and Tropeano

The Yankees shed Gardner's salary and get the young controllable ace they desire without giving up anybody in their plans for the near future. Sanchez is blocked by McCann. Refsnyder is blocked by Castro and Richards is an upgrade over Pineda and Nova.


Sign Justin Morneau for 1 year and $5 million

Sign Juan Uribe for 1 year and $3 million

Sign Greg Holland for 2 years and $5 million (stash)

Sign Joe Nathan for 1 year and $2 million

I think this is terrible and you have posted this garbage before or something very similar. The trade is so awful and shows you have no idea what you are doing. 9 players for one, you'd think they were getting Mike Trout, not that package would be good enough for Trout. But Garrett Richards, come on. Nathan and Holland are completely unnecessary, Holland is out for the year and for Nathan the pen is full. Uribe has not spot and the only reasonable signing is Morneau.

11 Feb 2016 00:08:11
Here's one that would benefit both teams.

San Diego trades SP James Shields and OF/ 1B Wil Myers to Toronto for SP Edwin Encarnicion and OF Dalton Pompey.

Toronto gets an innings eater and proven vet to slot into the rotation behind Stroman, plus a hitter with upside to replace EE's bat.

San Diego acquires a legit power hitter and a great CF prospect to cover all that ground a Petco.

The Jays cannot afford to re-sign both EE and Joey Bats, and the salaries of Shields and EE are fairly offsetting.

Pirates trade: Jeff Locke, John Jaso, Michael Morse, and PTBNL

Yankees trade: Mark Teixeira, Nate Evoladi, and LOTS OF $$$$$$$$$! CASH! $$$$$$$$$$$$$$


This clears the way for the future if Greg Bird.
This adds a right-hander to even out the Pittsburgh rotation.
This puts Tex in a position where he can produce again and not be haunted by being a backup.

Greg Bird is out the entire year. I don't get this whatsoever.

Agree2 Disagree2

09 Feb 2016 22:21:02
Wait a second, totallymlb do you mean this clears the door for Bird this year? If so, you do know Bird is out for the year after having shoulder surgery right? If not the door is already open for him next season as Texieria is in the final year of his contract. And like the Jerk said this is wouldn't land the Pirates Eovaldi.

Agree4 Disagree2

10 Feb 2016 00:08:03
The Pirates also have Josh Bell coming up this year not to mention Nick Kingham, Jameson Taillon, and Tyler Glasnow coming up the next two years to join Francisco Liriano and Gerrit Cole in the rotation. Also Neal Huntington would never in a million years take on a contract like Texiera's especially while trying to extend McCutchen and Polanco.

Agree1 Disagree1

10 Feb 2016 00:48:02
NO! for NYY next year

and I don't think NYY wants to have Tex's contract even for one more year.

Agree2 Disagree1

10 Feb 2016 12:59:47
Well I think they don't mind having him for the final year of the contract. They really don't have much of an option right now. With Bird being out for the year. Morse would be a huge downgrade.

Nick Cafardo reported tonight that the Cubs are still interested in starter Alex Cobb. The Cubs have also had reported interest in Desmond Jennings this off season. Meanwhile the Rays are looking to add a bullpen arm and like the hitting the Cubs can offer.

Cubs: RP Grimm, 2B/ OF Happ, 1B/ DH Vogelbach, SP De la Cruz

Rays: SP Cobb, OF Jennings, SP Floro.

Believable4 Unbelievable12

09 Feb 2016 04:34:56
1. The Cubs may still be interested in Cobb, but that doesn't mean the Rays are going to move him and they're not going to.
2. That is not a good package for him.

Agree3 Disagree3

09 Feb 2016 07:06:13
1. If the Rays aren't going to trade one of their starting five, as it was rumored all off season, I could still see them moving Cobb. Beyond their opening day rotation, they also have three top pitching prospects at the AAA level, including the reigning minor league player of the year, Blake Snell. All three of those pitchers could make an impact in the second half.

Cobb isn't even due back from his TJ recovery until August and only has one more year of control after this season. With Arrieta only under control for two more seasons, having a front three of Arrieta, Lester and Cobb would give the Cubs an intimidating playoff rotation for the next two seasons and further increase their odds for a World Series.

2. I think this is a solid return for Cobb, Jennings and Floro. Rays are looking for a late innings arm and Grimm would fit in well at the back of the pen. Happ and De la Cruz are two of their top 10 prospects, and Vogelbach (ranked 13th by Sickels) gives the Rays a possible future DH a couple years away.

Agree3 Disagree4

09 Feb 2016 12:09:44
I like the rationale for the trade. I don't think the Rays will do this trade. I'd like to see them do something like this.

Indians offseason:

Sign:
Mike Minor 2-3 year deal- He would either serve as a long reliever out of the pen or a back of the rotation starter but I think he would be a good fit for them

Juan Uribe 1 year deal-He would platoon with the fairly unproven Urshilla at 3rd and also has the ability to play 2nd and SS and also brings another veteran pressance to the team, I know they are saying his asking price is to high for them, I see his price dropping eventually and them scooping him up and serving as Urshillas mentor for a season.

Drew Stubbs to a minors deal 1 year-To platoon with Almonte till Brantly is back and then he will either be sent to the minors or DFAed or flat out released.

Lineup:
1. Davis CF
2. Kipnis 2nd
3. Brantley LF
4. Napoli 1st/ DH
5. Santana 1st/ DH
6. Gomes C
7. Chisinhall RF
8. Lindor SS
9. Uribe/ Urshilla 3rd

Until Brantly returns the lineup will be:
1. Davis CF
2. Lindor SS
3. Kipnis 2nd
4. Napoli 1st/ DH
5. Santana 1st/ DH
6. Gomes C
7. Chisinhall RF
8. Uribe/ Urshilla 3rd
9. Almonte/ Stubbs LF

Bench:
1. Perez C
2. Uribe/ Urshilla 3rd
3. Rameriz UTL
4. Almonte/ Stubbs OF (Stubbs will get optioned/ DFAed/ Released when Brantly returns)

Rotation:
1. Kluber
2. Carrasco
3. Salazar
4. Bauer
5. Tomlin/ Minor

Bullpen:
1. Minor/ Tomlin
2. Crockett
3. Anderson
4. House
5. Mcallister
6. Allen
7. Shaw

What do you guys think?
Do you guys see them making different moves?
Or any additional moves?

Let me know what you guys/ girls think.

One when healthy Mike Minor is a really good starter, 2 he's only getting a 1 year deal.

08 Feb 2016 18:22:47
Other than that is it all possible and should happen?

Agree2 Disagree3

08 Feb 2016 18:47:58
The Indians have Collin Cowgill and Joey Butler who could both fill the role you have Stubbs playing, and are probably more reliable at that.

Agree3 Disagree1

09 Feb 2016 02:20:32
Yes, they could sign Uribe.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 16:35:47
I forgot they got Cowgill and Butler so in that case you are right, they don't need Stubbs.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 17:37:40
Cody Anderson will not pitch in the bullpen.

Agree3 Disagree1

08 Feb 2016 01:55:42
Cleveland has one of the best rotations in the American League. A strong catcher who can work well with pitchers is something that they need. I strongly believe that they are the X-Factor of the AL. If their dynamic trio of Kluber, Carrasco, and Salazar perform as well as they did last year, an offense led by Lindor and possibly Brantley can land them, at least, a wild card berth.

Trade proposal

MIL sends Jonathan Lucroy, Will Smith to CLE

Lucroy is a definite top 10 catcher and possibly a top 5. Smith is an above average relief pitcher who has gone unnoticed because he plays on a bad team.

CLE sends Clint Frazier, Rob Kaminsky, Luigi Rodriguez, and Mike Clevinger

all are young prospects with upside.

Believable1 Unbelievable15

08 Feb 2016 03:47:39
So Yan Gomes and Jonathan Lucroy are going to fight for playing time?

Agree4 Disagree3

08 Feb 2016 11:42:28
Indians have Gomes, and he is pretty good himself.

Agree5 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 11:52:04
The Indians, with Kluber, Salazar, Carrasco and Bauer, could easily be this year's Mets that ride a strong rotation to the World Series. But they have other needs - 3B, OF, maybe 1B - to be addressed well ahead of a catcher.

Agree3 Disagree2

08 Feb 2016 13:33:12
With the return of Yan Gomes behind the plate, the Indians have perhaps the best pair of backstops in baseball. Both the Yanimal and Roberto Perez are accomplished defense first catchers. Both have their moments with a bat, especially Yan, who can hit with just about anyone.

Lucroy wouldn't even start.

Agree1 Disagree5

08 Feb 2016 14:22:07
Lucroy would start over Robrto Perez. Any day.

Agree3 Disagree1

08 Feb 2016 15:08:59
Of course. Roberto Perez is the back up. he would back up Lucroy, just like he backs up Gomes. To clarify

GOMES >>>>>> lucroy.

Agree2 Disagree3

08 Feb 2016 16:04:48
In what world is Gomes better than Lucroy?

Cumulative over the past three season:
WAR:
Lucroy- 10.7
Gomes- 8.7

wRC+:
Lucroy- 117
Gomes- 108

BB%/ K%
Lucroy- 9.0/ 12.4
Gomes- 4.5/ 23.7

wRAA
Lucroy- 43.5
Gomes- 13.8

And then there's this:

WPA (win probability added. How much does a teams chances to win go up with that player in the game, context dependent) :

Lucroy- 5.29
Gomes- -0.35

The only major metric Gomes has over Lucroy is that, defensively, he is better.

But every major offensive stat clearly favors Lucroy. To a point where you're willing to give a little on the defensive end to get his offensive numbers.

Agree10 Disagree3

09 Feb 2016 02:21:46
Gomes could catch. Lucroy could play first. Santana could DH. Napoli could watch.

Agree2 Disagree1

09 Feb 2016 14:56:48
The front of Cleavlands rotation is nowhere near the Mets rotation.

Agree0 Disagree2

09 Feb 2016 16:35:27
"Cleveland has one of the best rotations in the American League"

I didn't know the Mets were in the American League.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 16:38:51
And for what it's worth: the Indians rotation was just below the Mets last year.

Cumulative WAR: Mets 17.3, Indians 15.9

Getting raging homers to consider stats is like getting Donald Trump to use a hairbrush.

Agree1 Disagree1

09 Feb 2016 17:40:31
Noah Syndergaard, Jacob DeGrom, Matt Harvey, Steven Matz, Bartolo Colon, and Zach Wheeler
versus
Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, Danny Salazar, Trevor Bauer, Josh Tomlin, and Cody Anderson
are about equal but NYM is better.

Agree2 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 19:27:51
Rays get
Jonathan Lucroy. C
Jeremy Jeffress. Rhp

Brewers get
Blake Snell. Lhp
Justin O'Connor. C
Richie Schaefer. 3B
Either Casey Gillespie or Jake Bauers. 1B

Rays solve catching and reliever problems. Brewers get young controllable position talent.

Price is comparable to last year's Brewers Astros deal.

U can take snells name out of the trade he will not be traded.

Agree0 Disagree1

07 Feb 2016 22:01:23
From a Brewers prospective I think this is the best trade I've seen so far for lucroy. But it might be a slight over pay. Switch snell with Honeywell and I think it's a reasonable deal for a top 10 catcher.

Agree0 Disagree2

07 Feb 2016 23:27:17
Way to much for Rays. Of the top prospects in baseball, two top 100 talents, and a top 20 organizational prospect. Maybe something like Guererri, Shaffer, O'Connor, and Schultz.

Agree0 Disagree5

08 Feb 2016 00:21:35

Colorado Rockies get: Carlos Santana and Rob Kaminsky

Cleveland Indians get: Carlos Gonzalez

Discussion: Two years of Cargo for two years of Carlos Santana and full control of the Indians # 3 prospect while filling the major needs of both clubs along with $ over $ 15 MM in salary savings by the Rockies makes this deal reasonable for both teams.

Believable2 Unbelievable10

06 Feb 2016 18:25:56

06 Feb 2016 19:24:56
Hmm. Not bad.

Agree1 Disagree4

07 Feb 2016 02:46:43
Santana is a really good player. Better over the past 3 seasons than Gonzalez.

From 2013-2015: Santana 123 wRC+, Gonzalez 118.

Not to mention, outfield help is much easier to find than 1B.

Losing Santana and picking up Gonzalez doesn't really add many wins for the Indians.

guys maybe this is a honest thought of his i mean if you look @ his other trades they have similar bias and similar levels of extremity.

Mike Trout and Albert Pujols for Collin Cowgill and Abraham Almonte
is a better trade

Is it a good Cuban signing for the Tigers

Tigers sign Leonardo Laffita from cuba

no i thinkit os bad and he costed WAY to much

Dodgers or Marlins would be the ideal fit!

03 Feb 2016 20:02:07
if you have to ask its obvious that he's not.

Agree5 Disagree3

03 Feb 2016 20:13:52
and he only cost 250k not that much and I meant where would he start playing A AA AAA

Agree1 Disagree3

03 Feb 2016 20:53:08
If a team paid 250K for a guy, they don't have a ton of huge projections for him. At 24, he'll likely be a AA or AAA guy to start, and at best, a bench piece.

Agree0 Disagree3

04 Feb 2016 00:06:52
He will help out with the farm system and will make the Tigers prospect list

Agree0 Disagree2

04 Feb 2016 06:32:16
If you know this, why did you ask?

Agree1 Disagree1

04 Feb 2016 19:04:32
Because I what to know what people think of the signing its the tigers first cuban player signed out of the market

Agree0 Disagree1

04 Feb 2016 20:54:03
1. No, you didn't want to know what people that of the signing, you wanted to know if he was a good player.
2. It should show how bad a farm system the Tigers have that a lesser known or even unknown Cuban player jumps into their top prospect list.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Feb 2016 14:53:04
BATMAN he is not in the top prospect list yet Ok but he will eventually

Agree0 Disagree1

05 Feb 2016 16:55:00
If he's on a team's top prospect list, it's likely because they don't have many other strong prospects, so yeah, the Tigers could use him.

But if you think he'll contribute, I'm sorry, he probably won't. $250K in an analytics driven game, when lots of guys are getting 20-30M out of Cuba, it tells you all you need to know.

Eric Aybar
to BAL

Mychal Givens
Mike Wright
Tyer Wilson
C. J Riefenhauser
to ATL

BAL is somewhat trying to contend. Hardy sucks and Aybar becomes an FA at the end of the year. ATL gets 4 young pitchers, all who have had sucess at the upper levels of the minor leagues. (I'm sure ATL would have preffered one or two of Harvey and Bundy but they are extremely injury prone so I thought that these 4 would be a better package)

This is incredibly way too much for Aybar.

Agree8 Disagree1

03 Feb 2016 16:44:24
I don't like the trade. But, why would Atlanta give up Simmons for a year of Aybar?

Agree4 Disagree4

03 Feb 2016 17:53:46
They gave up Simmons for Sean Newcomb, Aybar was more or less a way to offset salaries and to prevent a logjam at SS.

Agree4 Disagree1

03 Feb 2016 18:03:42
Think of it like the Tulowitzki trade. The main piece in that trade was Jeff Hoffman to the Rockies, not Jose Reyes. Reyes was just salary offset.

03 Feb 2016 20:01:25
Thank you for the explanation about Aybar. Good answer.

04 Feb 2016 02:03:30
Plus, ATL turned around and got Dansby Swanson from Zona.

Texas: Brandon Guyer


Tampa Bay: Luke Jackson and Nick Martinez.

Believable0 Unbelievable12

03 Feb 2016 11:47:48
Why in the heck would Texas give those two up for a backup OF?

Agree4 Disagree0

03 Feb 2016 13:22:20
I agree. Jennings may make this deal work better? But this is not good with Guyer.

Agree4 Disagree1

03 Feb 2016 19:17:36
agreed

Desmond Jennings would fit perfectly with Texas.

Agree2 Disagree1

03 Feb 2016 02:44:57
Texas: Bryan Holiday and Drew VerHagen

Detroit: Tanner Scheppers.
