White Sox

CWS- Clint Frazier, Jorge Mateo, Chance Adams
NYY- Jose Quintana

Deadline move. Yankees are in good position to make a run in a weak AL. They have the offensive fire power, but lack an ideal 1-2 for the playoffs. Quintana and Tanaka will give them two very good pitchers to compete in the playoffs. The White Sox should continue to add young talent and focus on competing in 2018.

CWS- Jesus Luzardo, Drew Ward
WSH- David Robertson

Deadline move. This trade was agreed upon in the offseason, but money was the reason it didn't go down. The Nationals need a RP bad and the White Sox get two more young guys to add to their farm.

3B Mike Moustakas 4 years $52 million

DH Mitch Moreland 2 years $15 million

C- Zach Collins
1B- Jose Abreu
2B- Yoan Moncada
3B- Mike Moustakas
SS- Tim Anderson
LF- Clint Frazier
CF- Jorge Mateo
RF- Avasil Garcia
DH- Mitch Moreland

SP- Lucas Giolito
SP- Carlos Rodon
SP- Michael Kopech
SP- Reynaldo Lopez
SP- Dane Dunning

LR- Chance Adams
MR- Chris Beck
MR- Michael Ynoa
MR- Nate Jones
MR- Zach Burdi
SU- Tommy Kahnle
CL- Carson Fulmer

By the middle of 2018 this should be their Roster. They have young talent at every position and would be in good position to make some real noise in 2019.

Plausible, for sure.

I can tell you're a Mets fan. Weak AL? Check the records. NL has more teams with losing records than winning records. AL East has best combined division record in baseball. Why would Yankees give up Frazier AND Chase Adams (check his numbers) PLUS top 50 minor leaguer Mateo for SP w/ ERA 4.82. Rather have G Cole. Much better talent.

Agree1 Disagree3

27 May 2017 13:38:37
Mitch, either way, the Yankees will give up a lot for a premium arm such as Quintana or Cole. Quintana's contract is more team friendly than Cole, which means he may be harder to acquire.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2017 15:08:46
LBF, Cole is not signed to any long term contract and is only making 3.75 million this year. He is arbitration eligible until 2020. Quintana has the long term contract and is making 7 million this year, also a free agent after 2020. So who is on a more team friendly contract?

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2017 19:19:55
Quintana is likely to have the more team friendly deal. Cole will make a good chunk of change through arbitration. By Arb 3, it could be as high as $15M.

KC is spiraling downward, while Washington has World Series plans.

Royals send CF Lorenzo Cain, a free agent-to-be, and closer Kelvin Herrera to D.C. Cain fills in for the injured Adam Eaton this summer and fall, while Herrera settles the Nats' bullpen.

KC receives a jolt to the farm system in RHP Erick Fedde, OF Andrew Stevenson, and 3B Drew Ward, three of the Nationals' top 12 prospects.

I like!

26 May 2017 13:42:39
I think Washington could send a little more to KC, but overall, I like it.

Tigers trade; outfielder J D Martinez
Red Sox trade: outfielder Bradley and mid level prospect

Believable3 Unbelievable11

25 May 2017 19:57:37
Are you talking about Jackie Bradley Jr.? because if you are I would think the Red Sox would hang up laughing at that.

Padres will be selling.

San Diego sends 2B/3B Yangervis Solarte to Mets for pitching prospects Justin Dunn and Anthony Kay.

Padres get more farmhands, Mets send Wright to the retirement home and try to stay in contention.

Believable6 Unbelievable5

25 May 2017 20:59:17
Weirdly, I think the Padres could get more for Solarte. But then again, it's A. J. Preller, so probably not.

Agree3 Disagree0

26 May 2017 16:20:46
Mets won't trade their top two picks from last years draft. They need the pitching help in the minors. They won't move two pitchers for Solarte. I like Solarte, and i'm a Mets fan, but it wouldn’t match up to organizational needs.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 May 2017 13:32:15
San Diego will be selling off pieces, so here we go.

Padres send LH reliever Brad Hand to Boston in exchange for 3B prospect Bobby Dalbec and pitching prospect Roniel Raudes, Boston's No. 4 and 5 prospects.

Sox get relief help, Pads get a good look at a couple of talented kids.

Believable4 Unbelievable5

27 May 2017 00:42:33
Sox traded or promoted most of their better prospects. With Hand's last 3 years, they could get more than those 2 for a very productive LH reliever.

A good trade for 2 teams and both are struggling and both play at the opposing teams area of most need and both can benefit from a change of scenery


Tigers get:
OF Curtis Granderson
('17: $15.00 M)

Mets get:
SP Anibal Sanchez
('17: $16.80 M)
('18: $16.00 M club/$5.00 M buyout)

The Tigers have depth at SP right not while the Mets dont...the Mets have OF depth when the Tigers dont

This trade gives the Tigers a much needed OF despite his struggles ans he would return to DET where he was a fan favorite before the Scherzer/Jackson trade. He may not play much CF but he can platoon there with Romine/Collins and send Mahtook down to work on his swing. This would save the Tigers $1.8 million this year and $5.0 million/$16.0 million next year.

The Mets currently are without Syndagaard, Matz and Lugo plus with Harvey struggling...adding Sanchez (change of scenery can help) would give the Mets an extra arm in the rotation till one of their injured starters come back. Plus having a lot of OF means Granderson is the odd man out.

This trade doesn't make either team gives each of them depth at their worst position (DET: CF...NYM: SP)

It makes the Mets worse. Animal Sanchez is not an upgrade on any pitching staff.

Granderson is a significant upgrade on the Tigers.

Agree5 Disagree2

23 May 2017 15:44:55
I think it's a great trade but both teams will be wimps to do it. Two players who are both a big part of their teams make it hard to part with them.

Agree2 Disagree2

23 May 2017 18:22:55
Anibal Sanchez just got optioned down to the minors because he's terrible.
Granderson is actually good.

How is this a great trade?

Agree2 Disagree0

24 May 2017 00:14:37
How is Anibal Sanchez a vital part of the Tigers, he didn't make the rotation, did horrible in the bullpen, and is now in the minors. Granderson is just a slow starter, he will pick it up eventually.

Agree4 Disagree0

24 May 2017 23:09:32
Cookie, that's only good for the Tigers.

Nats Get: David Robertson, Nate Jones

ChiSox Get: Juan Soto (Organization's #3) and Luis Garcia (Organization's #9)

Gives the cats a huge boost in the bullpen for this year and next year. They keep Fedde, Robles and Kieboom

Believable5 Unbelievable8

23 May 2017 15:46:46
What a rip off for the White Sox. Juan Soto maybe, but they don't need Garcia. It's been hard for White Sox to work out a trade with just Robertson.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 May 2017 05:59:17
In wake of Freddie Freeman's broken wrist, here is something the braves might be able to pull off as the base of the trade....
Atl sends Julio Teheran to the cubs in exchange for Jemeir Candelario who will play first for the braves until freeman comes back. Keep in mind Candelario is blocked on the cubs roster at both third and first, and Julio is a mid rotation starter with a team-friendly contract and the braves supposedly have lots of pitching depth in the minors. now with that being said the trade would need a lot more details but this would just be the base of the trade or maybe it wouldn't work at all since pitching prosepects are so hard to predict and the braves would be willing to hold on to Teheran, if that's the case I can see a package of Lhps Jaime Garcia and Sean newcomb going to the cubs instead

Believable4 Unbelievable10

19 May 2017 15:57:02
A pitcher like Teheran demands more than Candelario as a headliner. I think it starts with Happ or Jimenez.

Agree3 Disagree2

19 May 2017 17:26:34
Yeah, Teheran is a proven starter. He's bringing back a significant package to Atlanta.

Agree3 Disagree1

27 May 2017 00:47:18
Hey Drake-still think you can get a Meadows/ Newman plus package for Quintana? Quintana is this year's Shelby Miller. Buyer beware.

Agree0 Disagree0

Long way away, but if the Tigers find themselves out of the race around the deadline, they may have a few good pieces to move. Here's a few general ideas.

Tigers trade:

JD Martinez

Dodgers trade:

Alex Verdugo and a
mid level P prospect Dustin May or Josh Sborz

Verdugo may seem like a high price for a rental but Martinez is truly a game changing bat.

Tigers trade:
Justin Wilson (controllable through 2018)

Nationals trade:
RHP Eric Fedde or OF Andrew Stevenson

Everybody knows how valuable bullpens are come playoff time. Wilson would be a hot commodity as a power lefty who brings it at 97. Other teams like the Astros, Cubs, Dodgers to name a few will be after bullpen help as well.

Believable5 Unbelievable5

19 May 2017 01:24:30
JD is old and not a great fielder and the offense doesn't overshadow the defense.

Agree0 Disagree4

19 May 2017 02:39:14
I don't think the Dodgers would give up Verdugo, who is really close to the majors, for a rental of Martinez.

And there's almost no chance of the Tigers getting that for Justin Wilson.

Agree2 Disagree4

19 May 2017 04:33:14
Doyers, Martinez is only 28, not exactly old.

But the Dodgers aren't paying that price for him.

Agree1 Disagree1

19 May 2017 19:52:15
^Correction, Martinez is 29. (I did the math wrong from his DOB) . Still, he's not "old"

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2017 15:50:08
There is no way the Nats would give away those players, especially Stevenson. Eaton injured, so Stevenson will be promoted in September. Werth and Harper are almost gone too.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2017 14:27:50
What would it take for Minnesota to get Chris Archer? Would a Nick Gordon and either Fernando Romero or Stephen Gonzalves get it done?

Believable0 Unbelievable14

17 May 2017 17:49:36
Not even close.

Start with Jose Berrios, add in Max Kepler, then the package you suggested.
