Seattle has its pitching doing really good. Once Paxton and walker are called back up they will be even better. They just need to find offense for the rotation so we can clinch a playoff spot.
make a few trades and they will be good
Seattle gets: OF Matt Kemp, pay $70m of his remaining contract
Dodgers get: 2B Nick Franklin, SP Victor Sanchez, RP Carson Smith
dodgers get a huge portion of Kemps salary off the books and get some good young talent to package in a trade for someone like price or lester
Seattle gets: OF Alex Rios, pick up his team option
Texas gets: SP Tyler Pike, OF Gabriel Guerrero, C Tyler Marlette
Since Texas is out of it this year with all of their injuries, they can afford to trade Rios even to its division rivals while getting good young players that can help the team out in the future
Call up James Paxton and Taijuan Walker. Option SP Erasmo Ramirez to triple a and Corey Hart designate for assignment. Hart isn't living up to his contract and can't hit his weight. With Morales on the team it makes it easier to let him go.
2014 Seattle Mariners
1- (SS) Chris Taylor
2- (RF) Alex Rios
3- (2B) Robinson Cano
4- (LF) Matt Kemp
5- (DH) Kendrys Morales
6- (3B) Kyle Seger
7- ( C ) Mike Zunino
8- (1B) Logan Morrison
9- (CF) James Jones
1-RHP Felix Hernandez
2-RHP Hisashi Iwakuma
3-LHP Roenis Elias
4-RHP Taijuan Walker
5-LHP James Paxton
CL RHP Fernando Rodney
With King Felix and Iwakuma leading the rotation with the three young promising starters behind them, the rotation is going to make some noise along with a strong relief pitching staff. Also with the additions of Morales, Kemp, and Rios the Seattle offensive lineup will help Cano and everyone produce runs to help the pitching staff. These guys will help the younger guys grow. Seager is becoming a reliable player in his first all star year, Zunino is leading all AL catchers in home runs, James Jones is looking like a great defensive outfielder and steals bases like it's nothing, he looks like our future leadoff hitter, and Chris Taylor could be the future at short stop if he can keep on hitter unlike Brad miller. All in all this team has a little bit of everything and could make some noise once it comes down to who makes the playoffs. Let's hope for the best

New York mets receive:
Elvis Andrus SS (full contract)
Texas Rangers receive:
Dominic Smith 1B
Rafael Montero SP
Steven Matz SP
Andrus only being 25 and signed through 2020 gives the mets a solid SS that they have been looking for. It is their biggest need and they still keep their top 4 prospects and wheeler and still pick up a good shortstop.
The rangers get a solid return for Andrus and it gives them a chance to Luis sardinas to the full time job.

tigers are rumored to look to trade Iglesias now that they like suarez but I actually would rather trade castellanos then Iglesias cause he would bring more and Iglesias can play 3B if needed and if we keep suarez
teams would rather want castellanos then Iglesias to this point cause of injuries
30 Jul 2014 01:19:53
Cardinals get: Dallas Keuchel
Astros get: Stephen Piscotty, and either James Ramsey or Randal grichuk
30 Jul 2014 00:38:42

Colby rasmus to the phillies for aj Burnett?
29 Jul 2014 22:54:55
Wright Gee for Bogaerts Lester. I think wright over rated. Red Sox might think otherwise, Lester is under appreciated.
Mets can trade for tulo Cargo and D. Smith Syndergaard Montero Rosario Wheeler Nimmo
Lagares Flores Puello for Carlos Gomez
Harvey Lester Colon Niese DeGrom
Granderson Gomez Murphy Tulo Cargo D'Arnaud Duda Bogae
You are aware that Lester is a free agent at the end of the year right?
If anyone says anything about David Wright switching teams, just know, no matter what the rest of the trade is, it will always be unbelievable.
Bogaerts isn't going anywhere, unless it's for Stanton, which won happen anyways.
The Sox love Lester, and are not giving up him and their third baseman of the future for a No. 3 starter and an aging former superstar.
29 Jul 2014 22:28:18
Tigers Trade Deadline
Red Sox trade Andrew Miller, Koji Uehara, and Allen Webster to Tigers for Casey Crosby, Jonathan Crawford, Jeff McVaney, and Calvin Drummond
Demote Ian Krol
Rays trade Ben Zobrist to Tigers for Domingo Leyba, Jose Ortega, and Tyler Collins
Astros trade Tony Sipp to Tigers for Hernan Perez
DFA Phil Coke
Phillies trade Jimmy Rollins to Tigers for J. D. Martinez, and Daniel Fields
Indians trade Justin Masterson, and Sean Brady to Tigers for Kevin Ziomek, Blaine Hardy, and Jordan Lennerton
Tigers trade Jose Iglesias to Twins for Max Kepler, and Travis Harrison
Jimmy Rollins SS
Ian Kinsler 2B
Miguel Cabrera 1B
Victor Martinez DH
Ben Zobrist LF
Torii Hunter RF
Nick Castellanos 3B
Alex Avila C
Austin Jackson CF
The First one I know is doubtful but it could happen.
Smyly would move to the bullphen after Masterson was actived from the DL
Id be surprised if the Red Sox rays and Indians said yes to those trades.
Those all heavily favor the Tigers.
I don't see why the Twins would do that trade. Danny Santana looks to be the future shortstop for the Twins, why trade decent prospects for an injured player, and if they wanted a light hitting, good fieldjng shortstop they already have one in Florimon
I'm a tigers fan and love this but we don't need J-Roll because we would put zobrist there we have Davis in left we need to trade more in the redox deal same for zobrist and a lot more for masterson and the twins deal is pointless
29 Jul 2014 21:55:59
Dodgers trade: Seager, Urias, Guerrero, Kemp, + 40MM of Kemp's remaining salary
Reds trade: Ben Lively (Reds #6), Johnny Cueto and Aroldis Chapman
The Reds are in contention and will not trade away some of their best players.
29 Jul 2014 21:18:46
Orioles get Colon, Josh edging, Daniel Murphy and Bobby abreau
METS GET Dlyan Bundy
Makes sense Orioles improve rotation, lineup and bench and bullpen. METS GET another arm for trade purposes in acquiring a bat. Orioles have to grab division this year while they can
O's wouldn't put Bundy up for Samardzjia/Hammel, no way they are going to take Colon and some aging players with him.
Too much for 1 prospect. All of you don't understand the mets are a decent LF nd SS away from competing, why would they take a step back trade one of their good relievers, their all star 2b and trade colon whos a good clubhouse presense for the young guys.
29 Jul 2014 20:41:05
Lester is all of a sudden a hot commodity on the market, and has been linked to 7 teams:The Dodgers, Mariners, Brewers, Cardinals, Blue Jays, Orioles, and Marlins. This increased interest will certainly lead to him netting a hefty package. Here is a possible deal from each team.
Dodgers: OF Joc Pederson, RHP Zach Lee, RHP Stephen Fife
Mariners: RHP Taijuan Walker, OF Gabriel Guerrero
Brewers: RHP Jimmy Nelson, OF Tyrone Taylor, RHP Jorge Lopez
Cardinals: OF Stephen Piscotty, RHP Marco Gonzales, RHP Carlos Martinez
Blue Jays: LHP Daniel Norris, RHP Roberto Osuna, OF DJ Davis
Orioles:RHP Dylan Bundy, OF Josh Hart
Marlins: 3B Colin Moran, RHP Anthony Desclafani, RHP Sam Dyson
Dodgers would turn that down. I don't think they're as interested in giving up those major prospects for a 2-month rental.
Mariners would take that deal in a heart beat. I'd imagine Lester would sign with his hometown team.
Brewers don't have the best package to offer.
Cardinals will likely need to do better.
Blue Jays aren't offering the best package.
Orioles won't trade Bundy for Lester.
Marlins would take that too.
I imagine Seattle could be the best landing spot.
As a Brewers fan, I say that would be a good deal for Lester
Marlins won't make it through the year at 500. no need to give up prospects for a player who won't resign, and if he does they'll just trade him away a year later, (Jose reyes, Mark burhle)
What about the Pirates?
No way Cards, Dodgers, or Brewers give up that much.
Mariners aren't trading walker. They wouldn't even trade him for price. Walker is going to be the future ace in Seattle behind king felix. They would rather have walker under team control rather than a gamble on Lester that might not even pay off.
29 Jul 2014 20:28:28
PIT gets: Jon Lester
BOS gets: Austin Meadows, Nick Kingham, Jeff Locke
The Pirates don't get Lester unless Josh Bell is part of the package.
The pirates are the Dark Horses for John Lester
29 Jul 2014 19:18:20
Red Sox Trade: 3B Garin Cecchini, OF Henry Ramos, and RHP Matt Barnes
Astros Trade: LHP Dallas Keuchel
The Astros have shown interest in trading Keuchel, ans the Sox should jump at the opportunity to fortify their rotation after Lester leaves without selling the farm on Cole Hamels or breaking the bank on someone like Max Scherzer. The Astros getting two fantastic, albeit struggling, prospects in Cecchini, who looks to be a fantastic No. 2 hitter with his plus hit tool and decent power and speed, while Barnes has No. 2 starter potential, and failing that, could also be used as closer, seeing as his fastball sits mid-90s with plus movement. Ramos, meanwhile, provides low-level fortification in the outfield for the Strode and has solid-regular potential.
29 Jul 2014 18:54:26
Giants - Cubs - Dodgers - Red Sox
(Basically Dodgers-Red Sox and Cubs-Giants)
Giants - Get
Bonifacio and Schierholtz
Dodgers - Get
Red Sox - Get
Matt Kemp, Joc Pederson and Guerrero
Cubs - Get
Kickham, Stratton and Law
Pederson is most likely off limits. However, they dodgers r more open to trading one of the veterans to make room for pederson.
What are the cubs giving up? Nothing.
Is Law Adam Law?
^^^Well, if the Dodgers don't give at least one of their top prospects, they're getting nothing of value at the deadline. Any "veterans" the Dodgers want to shop at the deadline, such as Kemp, Ethier, Wilson, Perez, Crawford, or Haren are all either overpaid, ineffective, or, in the case of Crawford, both, and would net very little in return. In short, if the Dodgers want Lester, they'll have to give some top prospects. Otherwise, he'll simply be traded to another team.
29 Jul 2014 18:11:52
Pirates Phillies Trade
Pirates get Antonio Bastardo
Phillies get Jordy Mercer, Jared Hughes, and PTBNL
Our starting SS? Ummm no!
A bad bullpen piece for starting shortstop??
29 Jul 2014 17:33:10
The Dodgers are going to take on $185M in salary? ha. No way.
Phils would rather have one of the 2 pitching prospects instead of Seager
Why do I keep seeing corey seagers name and the mariners are not apart of the deal!
Mariners have Kyle Seager, Dodgers have Corey Seager you noob
^^ That is kyle Seager, Corey Seager is on the dodgers. Kyle is on the mariners
29 Jul 2014 14:02:42
Dodgers get: Jon Lester
Red Sox get: Stephen Fife, Corey Seager, Red Patterson, Paul Maholm, Miguel Rojas, Cash
Maholm? Lol. He rips the value of the trade in half.
Fife and Seager alone get it done.
I think that is an over payment for Lester
^ This is the minimum of what it would take to get Webster. Pretty much every contender has expressed considerable interest in him.
29 Jul 2014 13:41:11
White Sox trade John Danks to Yankees for Manny Banuelos
Red Sox trade Andrew Miller to Braves for Shae Simmons
Phillies trade Cole Hamels for Matt Barnes, Drake Britton, and Deven Marrero
Dodgers trade Matt Kemp and 70 million dollars to Seattle for Nick Franklin, and Edwin Diaz
Twins trade Kurt Suzuki to O's for Chance Sisco
Astros trade Tony Sipp to Tigers for Hernan Perez
Tigers trade Jose Iglesias to Nats for Michael Taylor, and Erik Davis.
Twins trade Josh Willingham and Phil Hughes to seattle fir Stefen Romero and Tyler Marlette
Braves do need Andrew Miller, but
Simmons is probably an over-pay.
Dodgers won't eat $70M of Kemp's contract. they aren't that desperate to move him.
I honestly would not mind giving up that little for Hamels but I think they would want a lot more than that
That's not nearly enough for Hamels.
I don't think the Yankees would trade Banuelos for Danks. I think it would be another time where they gave up less and took the money of the contract. Some of the other trades are ok. I don't believe the Phillies are getting enough for Hamels. The Dodgers aren't getting enough for Kemp and are sending to much money Seattles way. They have the money where another team should be taking on the money.
Twins aren't trading Hughes, he has been their best pitcher this year and shiuld be around for the turnaround, plus the Twins are getting robbed in the seattle trade
29 Jul 2014 07:04:52
Tigers-Red Sox-Nationals Trade:
Tigers get: LHP Andrew Miller - RHP Blake Treinen
Red Sox get: LHP Matt Grace - LHP Ian Krol - LHP Sammy Solis
Nationals get: SS Jose Iglesias - SS Deven Marrero
Why do the Nationals need Iglesias? They have Desmond, Rendon, and Espinosa.
Desmond contract is almost up.
^^Iglesias would be the best defensive utility man in the history of ever.
^ok so they would still have Espinosa and Rendon.
The nationals have said they're looking for a young shortstop because they don't know if they'll be able to resign desmond when he hits free agency. And the tigers said they're very impressed with Suarez so Iglesias might be available. And why are you including rendon and Espinosa in what you say? Neither of them are shortstops, Iglesias is incase you didn't know
29 Jul 2014 03:30:23
Tigers get: J. Rollins, A. Bastardo
Phillies get: J. Iglasias, D. Verhagen, D. Fields
Rollins is batting. 239 right now and Bastardo 's ERA is 4. 17 and worse against LH Batters.
Way to much for both.
So the Tigers give up their young controllable, cheap SS for an old and expensive past his prime shortstop. I don't think so
It makes sense for a win now tigers team, jimmy can be a solid playoff leader over iglasias
29 Jul 2014 06:08:15
Red Sox-Dodgers Blockbuster:
Red Sox Trade:LHP Jon Lester, RHP John Lackey, RHP Koji Uehara, IF Jonathan Herrera, and 3B Will Middlebrooks
Dodgers Trade: OF Matt Kemp, 3B Kyle Seager, LHP Julio Urias, RHP Zach Lee, LHP Paco Rodriguez, RHP Stephen Fife, PTBNL, and 40 million in salary relief.
This trade sounds (is) insane, but it's not completely impossible. The Dodgers become the clear favorites to win the WS, making an already fantastic rotation practically invincible in acquiring a rental ace in Lester, and a solid No. 3 in Lackey. They also get a dominant right-handed setup man in Uehara and good bench depth in Herrera. Middlebrooks is just a throw-in reclamation project. On top of it all, they get rid of Matt Kemp.
Meanwhile, the Sox get a good-hit outfielder in Kemp whose terrible defense should be lightened by the short wall in Fenway. They also get two studs in Seager and Urias, adding supplying a future third baseman and the potential ace they're looking for. Lee and Fife add to an already immense supply of mid-ceiling starting pitching in the Sox system, and Rodriguez could become a fixture in their new bullpen.
Kyle. you mean Corey Seager?
^Yeah. I realized my mistake the second after U entered the post. Sorry
Dodgers won't do this. Urias and Seager are elite prospects. Way too risky to throw them away on a rental who might leave after the season.
29 Jul 2014 05:43:44
yankees Get: dallas Keuchel, kyle smith and troy scribner
Astro Get:mason williams, cito culver and j. R murphy
Nobody wants Culver.
Theres always a taker. Except for Ryan Howard, no one seems to want him.
29 Jul 2014 04:27:42
Marlins-Mariners and it's not for Stanton!
Marlins send McGehee and Ozuna to Mariners for James Jones, Nick Franklin, Wilhelmson and Pike
That's a bit of an overpay on the Mariners' part.
Mariners giving up way too much.
I think the deal gets done with Jones, Pike and either Franklin or Wilhelmson, but wouldn't have to be both.
A much more balanced lineup than what we've been dealing with--grab the phone JZ!
29 Jul 2014 03:33:29
Tigers get: C. Hamels
Phillies get: R. Ray, D. Travis, S. Moya
D. Verhagan, I. Krol
Tigers move Smyly back to the bullpen
29 Jul 2014 03:26:48
Tigers get: S. Drew
Red sox: I. Krol, D. Fields,
No one would ever want Drew! And I'm
A sox fan and can't stand him. They'll end up DFA him
I'd jump all over that as a sox fan. But realistically, we're not going to get more than a lottery ticket prospect for Drew.
29 Jul 2014 03:21:04
Tigers get: A. Miller
Red sox: C. Crosby, H. Perez
