Domingo Tapia would be an unwanted mess. Even though this would be a good trade for both teams (Mets and Indians), the Indians would want someone like a Wieck or a Teddy Stinky.

Red Sox trade Xander Boagerts, Mookie Betts, Blake Swihart, Anthony Raunado, Garin Cecchini, and Jonathan Herrera for Cole Hamels

*Falls on ground laughing*

More like bogaerts, betts, owens, cecchini, swihart

(1)
(1)

This would be such an overpay for Hamels. Why not just sign Lester? He wouldn't even have a draft pick tied to him. Boston has a ton of young talent, they should not trade all of it for one pitcher with a great injury history.

(2)
(0)

Im a phillies fan, and I agree that Cole will be traded to Boston, but this is too much.
Mayb: Betts, Owens, Swihart and Coyle

(2)
(0)

Injury history? The guy has been on the DL twice as long as I can remember for minor strains and LEster/Price are going to sign contracts that go well into their upper 30's. Hamels only goes until he's 34. AAV's will likely be similar if not Hamels will be more of a bargain. I understand wanting to hold on to prospects, but it is what it is. Hamels is controllable for the next 4 years, all of which is during his prime. He's worth at least two top prospects organization wise and 3 more in their respective 10-20 rankings. Other than that, sign Lester, Shields or Price and possibly deal with Hamels on another AL East team.

(1)

Betts won't be traded. Period. The only players Boston would trade him for are Stanton and Sale, and they're staying put, so they won't trade him. Same with Bogaerts

Why would Detroit trade Porcello? He's good! And with Scherzer most likely leaving and Verlander's future in question, the Tigers are in no position to sell of their arms.

The Red Sox vastly improved their lineup with the addittion of Cespedes and Castillo, and with Xander and Mookie both showing Signs of life at the plate, the lineup is actually looking like a strength. However, they still do have some major holes, namely in the rotation, bullpen, and third base. Here's what they could do to fix them:

Sign one of Jon Lester, Max Scherzer, or James Shields

Out of these three, Shields is the most likely one to sign. Still, the Sox should at least make competitive offers for Lester and Scherzer, if Werner's promise to be aggressive in the offseason is to be believed

Trade 3B Garin Cecchini, RHP Anthony Ranaudo, and OF/1B to the Reds for RHP Mat Latos

The Sox get a great No. 2 for the rotation, while the Reds cash in on Latos' last year for a legit top o the order by who can play both third base and left, a decent backend starter with mid-rotation potential, and a cheap on base machine who can fill in either at first base or the corner outfield if their is an injury.

(1)
(3)

Oops, accidentally cut the proposal short. I was going to go on about how the Red Sox should sign the Panda and Robertson. Oh well

(0)
(2)

1. Lester is completely out of the question. They traded him because they knew they couldn't resign him. I see them signing Shields like you said.
2. If they trade for a pitcher it will be Hamels.
3. If you meant David Robertson, you're fooling your self. He will stay with the Yankees.
4. Sandoval is questionable for them.

(2)
(0)

You actually think D-Rob will choose Boston over New York?

(1)
(1)

The lineup is in transition, but veterans such as Ortiz, Pedroia, Napoli and Victorino will be blended with young guys such as Betts and Bogarts and newcomers such as Cespedes, Craig and Castillo to score runs. They'll be okay.

The rotation needs an anchor, and Shields has done it for two teams previously. I would love to see Boston trade two or three young SPs and whatever else it takes to get Hamels. A rotation of Shields-Hamels-Buchholz-Kelly blended with a couple of young guys is pretty good.

The bullpen can be fixed fairly quickly. But, it must be addressed. Robertson will stay in NY. That is not an option.

I'm a Phils fan and believe that Heamles contract is going to look really good after the free agent crop of starters sin this year. His years through the contract take him through his prime, though it's deceiving looking at the amount of dollars owed. The fact is on a team with an even half-decent offense Hamels is easily in the 18-20 win range year in and year out. Phils always take a dump when he's on the mound and it disgusts me. There are a few teams that Hamels would fill their needs this offseason, they could afford, and they have the prospects. If I'm Boston, I would do what I can to keep him out of Torontos hand becasue I think they are a dark horse suitor for Hamels and Price is the only one who even comes close to Hamels level in my opinion.

^^Allen Craig better not be in the lineup next year. He's absolutely terrible, and they have no place for him

(0)
(0)

^^^^No, it's not. They need pitching. Lester is a pitcher. Unlike Hamels, he won't cot us Mookie. He definitely fits their needs, and Werner has stated that they're going to spend big this offseason. I don't necessarily think that it's a given that Lester signs, but I don't think it's as impossible everyone here seems to think it is.

In the off season the Reds trade to the Phillies J. Votto, J. Bruce, and H. Bailey for R. Howard, D. Brown, C. Lee. My reasoning is the Reds would have a shoter amount of time to rid themseleves of some large contracts. Howard only has two more years left on his contract and C. Lee only one more year.

(1)

Terrible trade for the Reds. Howard and Brown suck horribly. Lee is not what he use to be.

What a moronic proposal. Terrible beyond any sense of reality.

What is J. Bruce batting? What has J. Votto done the last two years? H. Bailey has how many years left on his contract, and what has he done this year? This trade is about treading garbage for garbage! Maybe a change of seanery will help both teams.

PIT acquires: Rick Porcello SP

Tigers get DH and can let VMart walk an use that money to get a SP.

Pirates get starting pitcher that they will need because Liriano, Volquez, and Worley are all FAs

If I'm the Pirates I say "yes, please!" However, I don't think the Tigers are that stupid

TarheelRed

What a dumb trade. U probably liked the Fister trade as well. Proven Starting Pitchers are worth more then one struggling bench player. Yes he is good at times but is a defensive liability. VMart is going to resign probably the best hitter this year overall in the MLB. This has to be one of the dumbest trades ever posted.

If you want an SP, why not just keep Porcello?

As a small market team, the Reds can afford Joey Votto for only one more year ($14M in 2015, $20M+ 2016 and beyond). At age 31, he is still physically able to perform at MVP-type levels. whether he is able to do so mentally in Cincy is debatable. With this in mind.

Trade 1B Votto, SP Mike Leake and cash ($6M, difference in Votto/Bautista salaries) to Toronto for OF Jose Bautista, 1B Matthew Dean and P's John Stilson and Matthew Smoral

Rest of Red's off-season:
- pick up SP Johnny Cueto's option ($10M)
- buy out OF Ryan Ludwick's option ($4. 5M, saving $4. 5M)
- buy out INF Jack Hannahan's option ($2M, saving $2M)
- sign Cueto and Mat Latos each to 4-year $70M extensions

Bautista could play LF, with Todd Frazier moving to 1B and Kristopher Negron at 3B.

-or-

Bustista at 1B, Frazier stays at 3B with Jesse Winker/Chris Heisey in LF

TarheelRed

(13)
(8)

Cueto will want twice as much money.

(3)
(9)

The Reds could probably afford to give Cueto a similiar contract to Homer Bailey's, 6 years at $105M, but that's it. I really don't see either Cueto or Latos holding out just for more money. Neither of them impress me as that type of person (course I can only base that off of what I have heard each say in interviews, thing can certainly change).

TarheelRed

(8)
(0)

^Its a business. They'll go wherever the money is, and that's no nearly enough for Cueto, who's twice the pitcher Bailey is

(2)
(7)

^Not every player is like that. Some want to just play and be "fairly" compensated, not squeeze every dollar they can out of their team.
The whole key to the Reds future is Votto. Walt Jocketty over-reacted and gave Votto that huge contract in response to the deals given to other 1B and now they suffer. If Votto remains in Cincy at $20M (and then $25M) per year, the Reds are going to have to strip the payroll, which means pitching must go. Give me two strong starters like Cueto and Latos (or possibly Leake) over an overpaid and sub-par defensive 1B any day!

TarheelRed

(6)
(2)

If the Reds couldn't afford to pay Votto they wouldn't have signed him to the contract they did and they have already cleared 9 million off the books by trading Broxton. they will have another 4. 5 from Ludwick plus a few more contracts leaving

(1)
(4)

^The money you refer to is ALREADY GONE. The Reds have nine players who are due salary increases for 2015 (Votto, Cueto, Bruce, Phillips, Pena, Schumaker, Bailey, Lecure and Parra) totaling $11. 775M. Plus they have four players who are arbitration eligible in Latos, Heisey, Leake and Simon. Plus they want to bring in a LF'er.
All this take money. And for a team that has already set a franchise record for payroll where does it come from? Someone (s) has to go, and in my opinion it must be Votto. You can't tie up 20-25% of your entire payroll in one player and hope to compete.

Paul Washington at SB Nation suggested that the Cardinals would be an ideal companion if a third team got involves in a deal that would see Giancarlo Stanton eventually end up in St Louis. While his trade was more complex, this one may be more suitable to all three teams. A trade may look like this:

-Cardinals get Giancarlo Stanton and CC Lee

-Marlins get Oscar Taveras, Lonnie Chisenhall and PTBNL (Luke Weaver) when he's eligible after the one year signing period from his draft day.

-Indians get Carlos Martinez and Stephen Piscotty

The bundle that the Cardinals give up is big, but not bigger than Giancarlo Stanton patrolling RF for the Birds for at least the next three or four years.

The acquisition of the two Cardinals prospects along with a good hitting and improving ML level 3B adds quite a bit to the Marlins depth and talent.

The addition of Martinez and loss of CC Lee is little more than a wash, however, the Tribe's target, the addition of Stephen Piscotty, improves the Indians OF situation in RF where they need the help the most. Less of a log jam in the OF for the Cardinals also comes into play, but, at a cost of their top prospect.

That is a price most teams would happily pay for the services of a player of Giancarlo Stanton's ability. When evaluating a trade. the first step is determine who gets the first and second best players (right now) in the trade. It's a no contest, the Cardinals do. The Marlins get the second best player right now. and the rest are almost all first year ML'er and prospects.

Thoughts?

GSon

Not even enough for Stanton. Cardinals have so much in the minors. There's really no reason the Indians to be in the trade.

(6)
(0)

Not going to happen. Stanton is under control for two more years and they get can get a lot more then what this trade offers. More proven talent anyway. So far Traveras has struggled although he should be good in time, Chisenhall is a one hit wonder so far and he has tailed off to a. 220 hitter second half, and is poor defensively. This is the second worst post on here today.

Stanton will not be dealt period the end

The Cuddyer signing makes perfect sense, but you cannot live with Flores at short. A sleeper trade candidate could be Francisco Lindor. Why not trade Synderggard + b-level prospect for him. He is a switch hitter and a great fielder. Call him up in June.

Cueto is not going to be traded. His option for next season is $10M, which for a pitcher of his ability is very reasonable by today's standards. If the Blue Jays and Reds were to hook up on a deal it could be for Joey Votto

Red Sox offseason:

Trade LHP Henry Owens, 3B Garin Cecchini, OF/1B Daniel Nava, UT Jonathan Herrera, and RHP Anthony Ranaudo to the Reds for RHP Johnny Cueto and RHP Sam LeCure

The Sox get a legitimate ace to lead their rotation and a nice 7th inning guy while the Reds get three great prospects and some much-needed bench help

Sign RHP James Shields to a 5 year $80MM contract

Shields is really more of a No. 2 at this point, but he'd still
help a lifeless Red Sox rotation enormously.

Sign 3B Pablo Sandoval to a 5 year $85MM deal

The Sox need a bat at third desperately. Middlebrooks can't hit, Holt is more suited to a part-time role, and Bogaerts is better defensively suited for short. The Panda would appeal to the Sox due to his clean injury track record and reputation as a good clubhouse guy to go along with his production, unlike Hanley.

Let Koji walk. Sign LHP Andrew Miller to a 3 year $29MM

I personally feel the Sox traded the wrong reliever at the deadline. I love Koji, but even at the beginning of the year, the cracks were beginning to show. Miller's probably the best lefty reliever in baseball not named Aroldis Chapman, but will be slighted by the market due to him not being a 'proven' closer. The Red Sox should absolutely jump to get him.

Extend Cespedes

He's a beast. 'Nuf Ced

Phils offseason:

Sign Yasmani Tomas 6 -yrs $12 million/year

Toronto : Hamels and $10 million
Phils: Pompey, and 2 of Stroman/Sanchez/Norris/Nolin

Chi Sox: Cody Asche
Phils: Trayce Thompson and Daniel Webb

Mulling over a way to work a deal with someone for Revere too. I like him in some ways but his OPS is just dreadful for a leadoff guy and his average is high because pitchers aren't afraid to challenge him. And his defense is awful. noodle arm.

Signing Tomas and getting Pompey or a Joc Pedersen for Hamels is the way to go for jump starting the outfield of the future for them.

(3)
(7)

Actually, I meant Revere's OBP, but yeah OPS not good either.

Jays are not just a Cole Hamels away from being a contender. At Stroman, Sanchez and Norris are going to be keys to the future, Jays say no thanks.

(1)
(2)

If the Jays make a big trade, it'll be a fire-sale type move. Besides, I think it's practically a given the Cole Hamels is a Red Sock next year.

(0)
(2)

Actually it's pretty much a lock that the Phils will keep Hamels and rebuild around him. They'll try to move other non-essential pieces like Papelbon, Howard, Adams, Bastardo. And they'll be willing to pay those guys' salaries to get rid of them.

^If the Phillies don't trade Hamels, they won't have any prospects to rebuild with. He'll get traded for a Javy Baez, Joc Pederson, or Mookie Betts in the offseason.

(0)

^ True, the Phils don't have a large number of prospects, but they aren't bare either. Franco, Nola, and Crawford are top notch. The bullpen has some great young arms. Useful pitchers like Gonzalez, Morgan, and Martin are close. And there is still optimism for guys like Biddle, Tocci, Cozens, Altherr, Quinn, Shane Watson. If they can add a few more good prospects by trading Papelbon, Byrd, Bastardo, etc they will be okay. I believe Sizemore can be a force again. Then they can trade Lee at next year's deadline for a top guy or 2. I believe they can turn it around quickly. Of course, I'd rather have someone other than Amaro doing it!

Do you watch the phillies? Don't tell me this stuff about all these dark horses in their farm system. It sucks. It's one of the worst in baseball. Crawford is top notch. Franco and Nola are second tier. Everyone else was overdrafted. It will not be a quick fix. After the injury, you will not get a top prospect for lee, baseball just doesn't work like that. They need to trade hamels to get an infusion of youth in this team. As long as Howard Rollins Ruiz brown revere are on this team, they will not win. They couldn't break up the core when it was time to, and now that decision is going to make this team bad for the next 5-7 years.

The blockbuster

Red Sox get Giancarlo Stanton, Mike Dunn
Marlins get Xander Boagerts, Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley, Eduardo Rodriguez, Allen Craig, Jonathan Herrera

(1)
(8)

Well this started out good with Boagarts and Betts. But you lost me once you got to Bradley Jr. he really hasn't done anything or lived up to the hype and the rest are mediocre. Owens, Webster or Raunado would also have to be in the trade as well as a few others. Plus Stanton isn't getting traded.

(2)
(2)

I'm the person who texted it and I know he isn't getting traded. I just couldn't think of a trade

(4)
(0)

Here's what it would take:Betts, Owens, Swihart, E-Rod, Cecchini and two of Hassan, Brentz, Middlebrooks, Weeks, Herrera, Lavarnway, and Butler. Any more is too much, but I doubt the Sox do it unless they're absolutely sure they could extend him.

(0)
(3)

^^^Rodriguez is awesome. He's been untouchable since coming to the Sox system.

(2)
(0)

It sure looks like you thought of a trade.

^^small sample size. He's only made 6 starts with them.

(1)
(1)

^Yeah, but those six starts have been fantastic. Tons of Ks and very few walks. That Miller trade is looking very good for both team involved so far

(1)
(0)

It doesn't change the fact that he didn't look very great with Baltimore. I need to see a bigger sample size.

Three team trade and 10 player trade

Cubs get Jackie Bradley, Brandon Workman, Edwin Escobar
Red Sox get Cole Hamels, Wesley Wright, Dan Vogelbach
Phillies get Clay Buchholz, Starlin Castro, Allen Webster, Sean Coyle

Red Sox get a nice ace and can sign James Shields. They also get a nice reliever in Wright and a good first base prospect in Vogelbach

Cubs get a talented starter, reliever, and center fielder and they dump Castro

Phillies get a talented starter and shortstop with prospects in Coyle and
Webster

(5)
(11)

Replace Escobar with Henry Owens and this deal looks pretty good.

Offseason trade or free agent ideas for the Tigers if they lose V-Mart:

Tigers get: Ryan Howard
Phillies get: Jonathan Crawford, Hernan Perez, Patrick McCoy, Jose Iglesias, Cash


Tigers get: Mark Teixeira
Yankees get: Hernan Perez, Jonathan Crawford, Stephen Moya, Chad Smith, Patrick McCoy, Justin Miller, 2 PTBNL


Sign 1B/DH Kendrys Morales

Sign OF/DH Nelson Cruz

Tigers get: Chris Carter
Astros get: Hernan Perez, Ian Krol, Joe Nathan, Stephen Moya, Tyler Collins

(3)
(16)

Why would you give up all of those quality young players for a scrub like Ryan Howard.

(9)
(3)

Well you are giving up way to much for Ryan Howard. He's not worth top or mid level prospects. Teixera is still a really good defender, I don't see why he needs to be a DH right now. And last I checked the Tigers don't have a great farm system to be pulling of these trades. I know they could get creative like they did in the David Price trade.

(7)
(0)

Neither Howard or Texieria are worth that much, the most they are worth is a Quad A player and a prospect with high potential and high risk

(7)
(1)

To be honest all of this sucks

the tigers won't trade iglesias who has one of the best gloves in baseball which we need (which is why we've seen gonzalez, romine, suarez and worth at SS) so no to the phillies one

the tigers won't want a overpaid often-injured guy in teixera, especially at the price you put up, teixera is not that good anymore and trading all of those guys including a top 3 prospect and I believe a good power hitter in moya for him. NO WAY

the tigers would pass on morales as he's having a HORRIBLE year to this point

i like the cruz signing but I don't like him one bit, as a few years ago when he won the homerun derby and hit all of them homeruns there, I said at that time, I bet he's done steroids or will in his career. well!!!. I don't want cheaters on the team

now, the astros trade, I like but don't add moya cause I feel he would be better then carter has been so take him out and it would be a deal

(5)
(2)

That's way too much for Howard and Teixeira

White Sox trade jose Quintana to the Phillies for Ryan Howard and part of his salary. Howard would replace Dunn as DH.

(3)
(14)

Lmao no. they can sign anyone in the offseason to DH, better yet, trade for daniel murphy if they really wanna DH. no one wants howard keep dreamin philly boy

(4)
(2)

To much for Howard. If the Phillies are to trade him, they will have eat his entire salary.

(4)
(2)

If the ChiSox trade Sale or Quintana, it will be for young, cost-controlled players who fill other needs. Not an aging overpaid underperformed in Howard.

(3)
(2)

If the Phillies trade Howard, it will be a pure salary dump. They will get no legitimate talent in return. That is a bad contract.

ive come up with 4 august trades the tigers can do that can help them make a world series run

the reason for 4 trades is that each trade would involve a player or two who would be free agents this offseason or next offseason

(TRADE 1)

- TIGERS GETS:
RP KOJI UEHARA

- REDSOX GETS:
RP KYLE LOBSTEIN
RP ANGEL NESBITT (#18)

tigers add a proven playoff closer who has a good era in the postseason for his career (3. 38) and if it don't work out, he's a free agent this offseason

redsox get 2 young pitchers with nesbitt being a power throwing pitcher who could reach 100 mph and get something for a pitcher who would be 40 on opening day next year

(TRADE 2)

- TIGERS GETS:
C GERALD LIARD
IF EMILIO BONIFACIO

- BRAVES GETS:
SP BUCK FARMER (#8)
OF TYLER GIBSON

tigers get a former catcher back who can provide off the bench numbers better to the tigers needs then holaday and a mutipositional player in bonifacio who takes over for kelly as the multipositional player and both are expiring contracts

braves get 2 guys that's from georgia (at least went to high school/college or born there) and a pitcher who can provide end of the rotation stuff for the braves and gibson could be a reliable 4th OF

(TRADE 3)

- TIGERS GETS:
OF ALEX RIOS

- RANGERS GETS:
RP PTBNL (would be drew verhagen when he's off the DL or COLE GREEN or ZACH REININGER)
C BRYAN HOLADAY
OF TYLER COLLINS (#15) or AUSTIN SCHOTTS

tigers get an OF who would be the CF for the tigers for the rest of the year and provide speed, defense and some power along with batting average and if it don't work out, they would simpily use the buyout and let him walk in free agency

rangers get rid of him and won't pay a cent since the tigers would pay the rest of his contract and they would getr 3 texas natives, whomever they choose from the RP, a proven backup catcher (which they don't have much at catcher) and a choice of a young and speedy OF in collins or schotts

(TRADE 4)

- TIGERS GETS:
SP TIM LINCECUM
1B MIKE MORSE

- GIANTS GETS:
SP JONATHAN CRAWFORD (#3)
RP WILL LAMARCHE or CHAD SMITH
1B AARON WESTLAKE
IF HERNAN PEREZ (#10)
OF PTBNL (not DEREK HILL or STEVEN MOYA or DANIEL FIELDS)

tigers get the end of the rotation starter they could use since sanchez is most likely done for the year and would be good out of the bullpen and they get a power bat that can play in the OF or even 1B to give miggy a break in the field and morse is a free agent after this year

giants get a top prospect from the tigers that can fill in the end of the rotation soon, a RP that is from california with lamarche being drafted last year and most likely the choice of the 2 they would get, westlake that can provide decent power, an infielder that can help ease 2B next year (compete with whomever they choose to) and an OF to be named later that's not hill or moya or fields
======================================================================================

C: AVILA
1B: CABRERA
2B: KINSLER
SS: SUAREZ
3B: CASTELLANOS
LF: MARTINEZ / MORSE
CF: RIOS
RF: HUNTER
DH: MARTINEZ

(1)
(13)

The Giants are in the midst of a playoff hunt and will not trade their starting left fielder and long man

(10)
(1)

Detroit not only say no but hell no. Linecum has past it that's why he is their bullpen, Morse is average at best. Not way we trade all of that for bums. Rios is not going anywhere maybeinthe off season, but not to Detroit who doesn't want him, Koji has been a bust in the second half of the season and might have arm troubles.

SEA acquires: Evan Gattis C/OF/DH
ATL acquires: Taijuan Walker SP

(3)
(13)

The Ms need a righty power bat, but I don't think Gattis is the best fit, seeing how they already have far too many 1B/DH types (Gattis is really not defensively well suited for catcher)

(5)
(0)

Would make sense, Mariners already have a good rotation, and would get a RH power bat, and the Braves would get a great young arm, but I don't see it happening.

(2)
(4)

Nah. Walker has five years of control. Gattis has one more I think. Walker is a top tier prospect. Gattis is 29 next year. It's not a bad proposal, but a good younger piece has to be added going to Seattle.

(4)
(1)

^I'm quite sure Gattis has more years than one. He's only been in the majors for two years now.

The Orioles and Red Sox have just completed a trade in which INF Kelly Johnson and INF Michael Almanzar were sent to the Os for INF Jemile Weeks and INF Ivan DeJesus.

This may be one of the least impactful four player trades in baseball history, but it means that Johnson will now have played for all five AL East teams in 3 years, seething he deserves a round of applause for.

Either really isn't worth trading anything of value for.

(6)
(1)

This has to be the worst post ever by someone who has no clue about talent and baseball. The tigers will not sign Santana, nor are they going to trade for Either who has done nothing in three years and has a huge contract. Iglasias is not going anywhere and for sure not to the indians. We are not trading within the division. enoughs top posting bs.

(6)
(0)

No to the ethier trade, for that package we can get kemp instead

the avila one is too low

no to the Iglesias one

trades are stupid

the free agent signings are good but romo is not a good closer anymore

funny how you have romine instead of suarez and still have Kelly there and McCarthy is doing well enough to earn a rotation spot with someone

(6)
(0)

If T. J House is coming to Detroit why isn't he on the roster

(7)
(0)

^Minor leagues

Mets Offseason

Red Sox get David Wright & Granderson-
Marlins get Bogaerts Bradley Jr Syndergaard D. Smith
Mets GianCarla Stanton

David Wright will league the league in double 70-80.
Granderson with that short right field will is good for 30 HR.
Marlins need defensive CFin Bradley move Ozuna in place Stanton. Future at 1st Smith and borderline future Ace Noah and McGee replacement Bogaerts or switch him SS move Hechavarria their.
Mets get their 1st young superstar since Piazza

build around stanton with money to spend
Sandoval 5yr 85mil
Hanley Ramirez 3yr 40 mil
Nelson Cruz 3yr 45 mil

trade D'Arnuad Montero for Jason Castro -need lefty bat
trade Lagares Nimmo for Ben Revere - lead off hitter and lefty at bat

Mets need to spend money on hitters, in a pitchers ball park and payroll still would be under 100 mil

Revere-CF 1.5mil
Sandoval-3RD 17mil
Murphy-2ND 8mil
Stanton-LF 15mil
Duda-1st 5mil
Cruz-RF 15mil
Castro-C 1mil
Ramirez-SS 13 mil

Why would the Sox want Wright? Yeah, they need some help at third, but Wright is old and severely overpaid. And why would they want yet another outfielder? They already have like 9 outfielders fighting for 5 spots. If Xander is traded this offseason, it will be as part of a package for a true ace with years of control, like Sale or Darvish.

(3)
(0)

Why would you trade D'Arnaud for Castro? He's way better, unless you think Castro can produce more years like 2013

(4)
(0)

Doesnt seem terrible but would not do the lagares trade he's a lock. all good imo but none of em will happen sadly

(0)
(1)

You take the best hitters in the league and put them in Citifield and all stat will below career avg and that is just the apposite at Fenway Park. Granderson no less 30 HR. 250 battings with just 82 games in Fenway. David Wright will lead the league in double off the monster will also be 30 HR. The power are Routine out in at citifield despite even recently bringing in the fence. Mets need big beast to hit 30 + homerun in Citifield Wright will be Pedriora of 3rd. Stop overvalueing Baegert, He is prospect still with little accomplished. nobody is trading you 10 ten pitchers for potential. if Bogaerts bat can catch up to his defense, than you have an arguement. for now you have no arguement. David Wright is proven corner stone star in his prime 31. 5 good years left ahead in DH replacement Ortiz 3 years. Sox are willing to pay money for good quality stars with characters.

D'Arnuad better Castro? matter of opinion. can't a catcher with to many concussions. need more lefty bats. Revere is speed as leadoff hitter base stealer, maybe not slightly not as good defensively Lagares. but a much better bat and another lefty bat, to give a balance 4lefty and 4 righty

(1)
(1)

^The Red Sox don't want Wright due to his contract and declining performance, especially, if they have to give up their most promising young players for him. He won't lead the league in doubles because he's not good anymore. And Granderson would die terribly at Fenway Park, which has been historically brutal on lefty sluggers due to the very deep right field power alley.

(0)
(1)

^^Umm. people will trade pitchers or potential. That's kinda how trades work. And O wasn't saying that I expect 10 pitchers for Bogaerts. I was just saying that if Bogaerts gets trade this offseason, it will be in a package with more top prospects for a front-of-the rotation pitcher. Calm down.

(0)
(0)

Middlebrook Cecchini Owen switch Bogaerts

(0)
(1)

^No. The Red Sox just don't want Wright, who has the kind of monster contract they hate, and Granderson, who would fit in their outfield logjam.
