If the Red Sox plan to contend next season, they need to get over their paranoia regarding upper-tier free agents, trading prospects, and IFAs borne of the disasters of Crawford, Gonzalez, and Dice-K. Their overly conservative approach paid off in 2013, but that was with a unique market which will most likely never appear again. And while they're not going pickup someone like Stanton or Sale, there are some other interesting names on both the trade and FA markets. Here's what they should do this August and this offseason:

Sign Cuban OF Rusney Castillo to a 5 year $58M deal.
One of the main problems with the Sox offense this year is a general lack of speed, something that was a strength last year. And while Brock Holt has been fantastic this year, he's unlikely to continue to produce from the top of the order. Considering this, Castillo looks to be a perfect fit for the Sox.

Sign 3B Pablo Sandoval to a 5 year $100M contract.
Another problem the Red Sox have had this year is a general lack of production from third base. The Kung Fu Panda would be the best way to remedy that issue for next year. His relative youth, general durability, and above-average defense despite his weight make him a much more Sox-style player than the others in third base FA, Ramirez.

Resign RHP Koji Uehara to a 1 year 8. 5M deal
This really goes without explanation

Sign LHP Neal Cotts to a 2 year $8M deal.
The Sox are in a dire need of a lefty reliever who can help fill the void Andrew Miller left. Cotts fits the bill nicely as a lefty who gets lefties out while still holding his own against righties.

Resign David Ross to a 1 year $1M deal
Ross is a serviceable backup and is popular with the pitching staff. Nor reason not to keep him around for another year.

Trade C Blake Swihart, LHP Edwin Escobar, 3B/LF Garin Cecchini, C/1B Ryan Lavarnway to the Astros for LHP Dallas Keuchel and RHP Chad Qualls
The Sox get a cheap No. 2 Starter and a nice setup man while the Astros get a haul of promising young talent and a warm body to occupy a 40-man roster space if anyone ever gets injured.

Trade LHP Henry Owens, SS Deven Marrero, OF Allen Craig (paying half his remaining contract), and OF Manuel Margot for RHP Jonny Cueto
The Red Sox get an ace to lead their rotation while the Reds acquire 3 great prospects and a now incredibly cheap veteran hitter who is a prime candidate to to return to form soon.

2015 Lineup: Rotation:
CF Rusney Castillo RHP Jonny Cueto
2B Dustin Pedroia LHP Dallas Keuchel
3B Pablo Sandoval RHP Clay Buchholz
DH David Ortiz RHP Joe Kelly
1B Mike Napoli RHP Rubby de la Rosa
LF Yoenis Cespedes
RF Shane Victorino Bullpen:
SS Xander Bogaerts
C Christian Vazquez CL Koji Uehara
SU Chad Qualls
Bench: SU Neal Cotts
MR Junichi Tazawa
OF Jackie Bradley Jr. MR Edward Mujica
UT Brock Holt MR Tommy Layne
OF/1B Daniel Nava MR Allen Webster
C David Ross LR Brandon Workman

Easily a contending team next year, especially if Bogaerts can chip in at the plate.

I'm a huge Sox fan, and even I know that that isn't close to what we'd need to get Stanton. And the Doders won't trade Howell, seeing that he's pretty much their only reliable reliever before Jansen.

Stupidity at its finest, "pay the rest of the contract u do realize he isn't signed to a long term deal with big money right?

It would definitely have to take Owens, Ranaudo, Webster, Swihart, Cecchini & Bogaerts.

1. When they traded Lester it was for good. He won't be back. They aren't going to offer him anywhere what he wants. If they really wanted to keep him they would have signed him to an extension.
2. Rusney Castillo won't be signing in the offseason. He will be signing by the end of the week. Its an in season move.
3. Martin isn't happening.
4. Stanton won't be traded. And LOL at pay the rest of the contract. He is arbitration eligible. Plus that is an awful trade for Stanton.
5. Beltre will stay in Texas and again a terrible trade for him.
6. Joba already had tour in the AL East, I would expect the same thing in another tour.
7. Phil Coke sucks.

(2)
(0)

As much as I would love for the sox to give up that little for Stanton it would never happen. Owens, Renaudo, and betts would have to be in that trade. And if he did come here there is no way he's hitting behind Ortiz and Napoli.

Soxchamps1804

Redsoxs already screwed up when lester was willing to sign a team friendly 5 100 deal, lowballed him at 80, now he will go elsewhere and get atleast 120 with another team, probably more.

ive come up with 3 trades (3 teams in each trade) but mainly it is for the tigers

i also came up with 6 free agent signings to go along with the 3 trades

===============================
TRADE 1

- TIGERS GETS:
SP J. TURNER (CHC)
3B M. PRADO (NYY)

- YANKEES GETS:
RP J. NATHAN (DET)
IF A. ROMINE (DET)
OF A. DIRKS (DET)
RP J. GRIMM (CHC)
IF A. ALCANTARA (CHC)

- CUBS GETS:
OF B. GARDNER (NYY)
SP E. BRICENO (DET)
RP J. VALDEZ or A. NESBITT (DET)

TIGERS add veratility with prado and get back a former prospect from their team who is still young and still has potential

YANKEES get a closer who would be cheaper then robertson would, romine who has his brother as one of the yankees catching prospects, dirks who can help in the OF, a good young RP and a talented SS who also can play 2B but is the odd man out with baez and castro and russell involved

CUBS get a speeding guy who can help in the OF and 2 young pitchers from the tigers

===============================
TRADE 2

- TIGERS GETS:
SP T. LINCECUM (SF)
OF D. NAVA (BOS)

- GIANTS GETS:
SP D. VERHAGEN (DET)
3B N. CASTELLANOS (DET)
RP MID LEVEL PROSPECT (BOS)
2B M. BETTS (BOS)

- REDSOX GETS:
SP B. FARMER (DET)
IF H. PEREZ (DET)
RP S. ROMO (SF)

TIGERS get a pitcher who may be on the downside of his career but is still capable of helping the tigers and they also get a power bat off the bench

GIANTS get a replacement for sandoval who is way cheaper and a young 2B who can take over at 2B and 2 good prospects

REDSOX get a pitcher who can be better with a change of scenery and a young talented SP in farmer and a young IF in perez who can help
===============================
TRADE 3

- TIGERS GETS:
RP J. PAPELBON (PHI)
SP T. CAHILL or R. DELGADO (ARI)
1B M. TRUMBO (ARI)

- DBACKS GETS:
SP R. PORCELLO (DET)
RP J. VALDEZ or A. NESBITT (DET)
C B. HOLADAY (DET)

- PHILLIES GETS:
RP B. ZIEGLER (ARI)
SP J. CRAWFORD (DET)
IF E. SUAREZ (DET)
OF T. COLLINS or S. MOYA (DET)

TIGERS get a better closer then what they have, a young bullpen arm that can make spot starts and a power bat to put behind cabrera

DBACKS get a young pitcher who has played out of his mind this year in porcello, a young bullpen arm, a young catcher who can do well backing up montero, a veteran SS who can help the young guys they have and a choice of a veteran bat who is a free agent after next season or a young player who is not living up to his potential that the phillies had hoped for

PHILLIES get a bullpen arm that can help, a young starter who essentially can take over in the bottom of the rotation soon, a young and promising SS who could replace rollins and would compete with jp crawford for the starting spot next season and an OF prospect of their choosing (collins or moya)

No offense, you over think everything.

(0)

Not enough coming back to the Sox for Mookie. Romo is a major question mark and would do nothin for a Sox bullpen that desperately needs consistency outside of Koji (who'll they resign), Farmer probably isn't more of a Chris Capuano type of pitcher, something the Sox have in spades, and Perez would be blocked by Bogaerts, Pedroia, Betts, Coyle, Marrero, Cecchini, Holt, Herrera, and even Middlebrooks on the infield depth chart.

(2)
(1)

What a bunch of garbage. No one is going to make any of these trades. Romine is not a talented anything. Lincecum is past it and Nava is not worth it and you have them trading Castellanos a prized right handed power bat your an person plain and simple.

All of these are great for the Tigers but the teams involved would get screwed over.

David Price just confirmed that has not had conversations with the Tigers about a long-term contract as of yet

Tigers Fan

(3)
(1)

Well I believe he's just one of many players who hate to talk contract extensions with less then 2 years remaining on their current deal cause it would overshadow how that person plays so I believe we would extend him around the same as the 6 year $144 million we offered scherzer and price is better

(2)
(0)

So what, they r underachieving and ade ina pennet race, no need for distractions i'm sure hell get locked up. either him or scherzer r going to get a big deal

(2)
(0)

If te Tigers didn't want to pay Scherzer, I can't foresee them extending Price, who'll go for an even heftier contract.

(1)

Price is a rental and a waste for Detroit this year when they miss out on getting to the playoffs.

Detroit Tigers Get: CL Jonathan Papelbon

Philadelphia Phillies Get: 2B Devon Travis

(5)

Saw these, like the Nava/Cordier trade.

(2)
(1)

The Sox will most likely trade Nava as part of a package for someone like Hamels, Beltre, Latos, Gee, or Miley. Alone, all he nets is a fringe prospect, who probably won't ever have an impact on the team, given the depth of their system.

(3)

The phillies would have to include cash

19 Aug 2014 06:37:07
Angels-Giants Trade

Giants Get: 2B Howie Kendrick, RHP Michael Kohn, RHP Cory Rasmus

Angels Get: RHP Clayton Blackburn, LHP Jeremy Affeldt

GIANTS: The Giants get a good 2B with a little pop and upgrade at an awful 2B position along with picking up a few good, young right-handed arms for the pen that could use a little work

ANGELS: The Angels open a spot at second for Grant Green (who's a good, promising second baseman and soon Alex Yarbrough and pick up a needed southpaw for the pen due to the Thatcher injury as the Giants will still have Javier Lopez

(1)
(9)

Affledt has been one of the best arms in the Giants bullpen this season, and Joe Panik has emerged as a good second base option for the future, so the Giants don't need to do this trade.

19 Aug 2014 04:50:41
Red Sox-Rangers-Mets offseason trade

Red Sox Get: 3B Adrian Beltre (Rangers), RP Bobby Parnell (Mets)

Rangers Get: LHP Dillon Gee (Mets), LHP Henry Owens (Red Sox), 3B Will Middlebrooks (Red Sox), PTBNL (Mets), cash

Mets get: OF Shane Victorino (Red Sox), SS Deven Marerro (Red Sox), OF Lewis Brinson (Rangers), 2B Sean Coyle (Red Sox), 3B/OF Garin Cecchini

The Red Sox get a fantastic all-around third baseman who would provide both pop and average to their lineup, as well as some bullpen help.

The Rangers clear up room for Gallo to come up soon, and receive a nice middle-order starter in Gee, one of the better pitching prospects in baseball, and a serviceable placeholder for Gallo.

Finally, the Mets cash in on some of their pitching depth for a much-needed outfield depth and a bevy of interesting prospects.

(5)
(11)

This would never happen. The Red Sox would not give up their best pitching prospect and two of their best infield prospects for that. Add Matt harvey to that deal and then well talk!

Red Sox would not trade Owens unless it's for Stanton maybe

^I'd think he'd be available for an ace type pitcher this offseason, like Hamels, Cueto, or maybe even (ducking) Darvish. But you're right, I think I had the Sox overpay in this trade. Maybe if a non-Darvish/Harvey SP comes back to the Sox?

But as a Ranger fan, I'd be happy I guess.

Bourn sucks, and is not a good leadoff hitter.

Josh Johnson? Give me a break. Pitch the kids. Johnson is always on the DL.

tigers get bullpen help, veteran shortstop who can help the young ss we have and a power hitting of who can take over in rf when hunter leaves and the tigers would be paying $20,000,000 of the $37,000,000 owed to papelbon and rollins over the next 2 years

phillies for one, save $17,000,000 and they get young pieces who can help with crawford and suarez as the main pieces

That's an awful lot that Detroit's giving up for those players.

(5)
(2)

Take Crawford and Moya out of the equation and then its a deal. can't send them too much with the salaries you are taking on and Brown has been a bust only one good year bad on base percentage and below average defense. U don't send a starting pitcher with talent for a one year SS, and a closer who has a huge salary although very good a huge salary.

Not huge salary when u getting 17mil from phils. if u divide it up your paying 8mil a year for a top closer, typical cost for a top closer. And 5mil for jimmy rollins that's pretty cheap

Mets Offseason:

Acquire Carlos Gonzalez for Noah Synderggard, Kevin Plawecki, and Dominic Smith

Sign JJ Hardy 3 yrs/ 45 mil

Lineup:

Lagares
Murphy
Wright
Gonzalez
Duda
Granderson
Hardy
D'Arnaud

Rotation:
Harvey
Wheeler
DeGrom
Niese
Gee
*Colon or Synderggard would be in rotation if Gee and/or Niese is traded to Colorado for Gonzalez instead.

I know giving up Synderggard is a risk for a player like Gonzalez, but the Mets need a big bat and Gonzalez is one of the few who is potentially available. This team has plenty of pitching already and by adding Cargo and Hardy, the lineup is above average as well. This would be a playoff contender.

(1)
(9)

Not terrible, but cargo is out for the year now not worth the risk. i'd go for melky cabrera or the thomas guy the cuban.

(6)
(0)

I don't think mets would give up syndergaard for cargo who is injured and struggles on the road. I think only targets they trade syndergaard for are tulo or baez.

The Red Sox need a lot of work for next season, and while I'd love them to snag some pie-in-the-sky FAs or trade targets like Lester, Sale, Stanton, or Tulo, that just won't happen. Here are some more realistic, but still impactful deals they could pull off:

Trade CF Mookie Betts, LHP Henry Owens, SS Deven Marrero, and 2B Sean Coyle to the Phillies for LHP Cole Hamels and LHP Jake Diekman

The Sox get a rotation linchpin to take the pressure off their young arms, as well as some bullpen insurance, while the Phillies get a slew of promising young players who will help start their rebuilding movement.

Trade OF Shane Victorino and $5.5 million in salary relief to the Mets for RHP Bartolo Colon

The Sox get a nice innings-eater while the Mets shed most of Colon's salary while getting a much-needed outfield bat

Sign Pablo Sandoval to a 5 year $75 million

Middlebrooks clearly can't hold down the third base job, and with no true replacements in the system, signing the Panda wouldn't block any prospects. His above-average all-around game would contribute nicely in the Sox's new lineup

Sign Luke Hochevar to 2 year $11 million contract

Extend Koji 1 year $8.5 million

Sign Cuban IFA Rusney Castillo to a 4 year $50 million deal

Castillo's speed would look very nice at the top of the Red Sox's order.

Lineup: CF Rusney Castillio, 2B Dustin Pedroia, 3B Pablo Sandoval, DH David Ortiz, RF Yoenis Cespedes, 1B Mike Napoli, LF Allen Craig, SS Xander Bogaerts, C Christian Vazquez

Rotation:LHP Cole Hamels, RHP Clay Buchholz, RHP Joe Kelly, RHP Rubby de la Rosa, and RHP Bartolo Colon

Bullpen: CL Koji Uehara, SU Luke Hochevar, SU Junichi Tazawa, MR Tommy Layne, MR Edward Mujica, MR Jake Diekman, LR Brandon Workman

Bench: UT Brock Holt, OF Jackie Bradley Jr. , OF/1B Daniel Nava, C Dan Butler

This team could easily contend.

(3)
(6)

Sandoval will get more than 75 million on a 5 year deal. I think at least 85 million on that deal, and probably 90.

(3)
(1)

Trading for Colon doesn't make much sense. All he would be doing is blocking a talented pitching farm system from getting into the bigs.

(2)
(2)

^He's only got a year left, and they can cut him easily with their money.

(1)
(0)

^^^Fine. I still think the So should nab Panda. He's less expensive than Hanley, and more productive than Headley.

(1)
(0)

Any chance the trade with philly could include Jackie Bradley Jr? I like betts, just curious

(1)
(0)

^I don't know why you'd want Bradley. He's really just a late-inning defensive replacement.

As a Pirate fan, I don't see any of this happening.

I don't see Martin even be given a qualifying offer. Some team like the Red Sox or Dodgers will offer him more than 12m a year.

If Edwin Jackson can get 4/40m, Lirano will get that and more.

The front office isn't spending 4m on a bench player.

Seattle won't give up Walker for a. 220 hitter and a minor leaguer with no upside.

In case you've missed it, the Pirates have already been playing Alen Hanson at 2B. Which proves to me they have no desire to extend Walker.

The only signings I see from the Pirates this offseason is a Pitcher that no one else wants and they feel they can turn around. And of course bringing back Clint (Hurdle Jr. ) Barmes.

Might be a little too expensive

Why would the tigers DFA Saurez. Asdrubal Cabrera is worse then Saurez

I think you forgot tulo, cargo, lester, and every other good fa or trade target lol

(5)

Jose Iglesias is WAAAAAY better than Asdrubal Cabrera. and with Price there, Scherzer is gone. no if's and's or but's about it. He is a goner

(3)
(1)

No to scherzer (he wants toooooo much and if he walks, we get a 1st round pick. we sign a high free agent lose our 1st rounder and have that first rounder)

that's tooooooo much for nava

no resigning Kelly (Id rather go after Kelly Johnson. the other Kelly. lol)

no way the tigers trade avila to a division rival

suarez is too good to be DFA, trade him if you won't keep him in the majors

So do the Tigers poop money now?

Red Sox get Wright Granderson D'Arnuad
Mets get Bogarts Middlebrook Jackie Bradley Jr

Red Sox have the prospects and with the money to spend. Wright and Granderson will have huge numbers in Boston offensive friendly stadium

Mets get Tulo Cargo
Rockies get Wheeler Rosario Nimmo Middlebrook

fair value considering the Money Rockies are saving

Marlins get DeGrom Jack Bradley D. Smith
Mets get Stanton

fair value considering the Money Marlins are saving


Bogaerts-3rd 500k
Murphy-2nd 7 mil
Tulo-ss 18 mil
Cargo-LF 12mil
Stanton-RF 14mil
Duda-1st 5mil
Lagares-RF 500k
Plawecki-C 500k

Harvey 1mil Lester 20mil Colon 7mil Niese 7 mil Syndergaard 500k 36 mil
7 mil bullpen

payroll 100 mil

shizzee

(1)
(11)

The Red Sox have no interest in trading Bogaerts, especially for an overpaid player in decline in Wright and a TTO slugger whose lefty swing would be smothered by Fenways deep left-field power alleys.

(3)
(0)

Trades are completely 1 sided.

(4)
(0)

Ok. Stanton isn't getting trade. And he definitely won't be traded in division IF he does get traded. I think Tulo wouldn't waive his no trade clause to goto the Mets. And why would the Mets trade Wright. Teams don't typically trade their captains.

(5)
(0)

Horrible

(6)
(0)

LOL no. horrible return for grandy and wright tulo nd cargo season ending sugerys theyd be stupid to get either of them. the stanton trade is also foolish.

& No. payroll not 100 mil, wheres colons 10 mil? wheres your bench and bullpen?

Tulo and Cargo are staying with Rockies. no one is going to give up prospects and take on their salary for injury prone players.

If the Tigers really want to end up winning the division for the 4th consecutive year, here are moves they really should consider:

Tigers get: Curtis Granderson
Mets get: Justin Miller, Ramon Cabrera, Stephen Moya

Tigers get: Marlon Byrd, Jonathan Papelbon
Phillies get: Ramon Cabrera, Stephen Moya, Andy Dirks, Chad Smith

Tigers get: Ichiro
Yankees get: Justin Miller, Stephen Moya

OR

Tigers get: Daniel Nava
Red Sox get: Hernan Perez, Chad Smith

(2)
(12)

Doubtful that Moya would be given up for Ichiro.

(7)
(0)

Mets would not trade curtis granderson. they only put him on waivers if some team was willing to blow them away, which this offer isn't even close to.

(6)
(1)

Grandy isn't going anywhere unless a steal of an offer. that is not a steal

(6)
(2)

Tigers are not trading Moya he has to much potential and he is a left handed bat they need desperatly

(5)
(0)

The Red Sox have no reason to trade Nava. Like, none. He's cheap, can get on base, and is versatile. If he gets traded, it'll be in the offseason as an add-on in a prospect package for Cole Hamels, Mat Latos, or Andrew Cashner.

(3)
(3)

^I heard the Red Sox are already looking to trade him and the Tigers have strong interest, plus Boston does not need him considering they aren't in contention.

(2)

Ramon Cabrera was DFA by Tigers and Claimed by the Pirates

Here are some waiver deals the Tigers should consider:

Tigers get: Daniel Nava
Red Sox get: Justin Miller, Hernan Perez

Tigers get: Marlon Byrd, Jonathan Papelbon
Phillies get: Andy Dirks, Justin Miller, Hernan Perez, Ramon Cabrera

Tigers get: Ichiro
Yankees get: Justin Miller, Tyler Collins, Jose Valdez

Any of them would work for detroit.

The Red Sox probably won't trade Nava. He a very good bench player with years of team control, versatility, and on-base ability. No reason to trade hime for fringe prospects

i came up with 2 trades for the tigers for august and in the offseason along with free agent signings to help next season
===============================
august deals

(trade 1)
tigers gets:
rp a. bastardo

phillies gets:
rp m. mercedes + of a. dirks

tigers get bullpen help

phillies can get younger and cheaper

(trade 2)
tigers gets:
rp k. uehara + of d. nava

redsox gets:
sp d. verhagen + if h. perez + of t. collins + ptbnl

tigers get more bullpen help and a bat off the bench that can help at 1b and the outfield

redsox get young prospects for a a guy who would be 40 on opening day next year and a once good valued player who is having a down year (but could help the tigers)
===============================
offseason deals

(trade 1)

tigers gets:
rp j. ramirez + 3b m. prado + of ptbnl **

yankees gets:
rp j. nathan + if a. romine + 3b n. castellanos

** of ptbnl: heathcoat or austin or williams

tigers get a young rp to help in 2015, a multipositional player that can be useful and a young of prospect who all 3 aren't hitting to what the yankees had hoped for at this point

yankees get a closer that may be cheaper then robertson who is a free agent and after next season some closer that can help are free agents (feliz, soriano, henderson, street or rodney)

(trade 2)

tigers gets:
rp j. papelbon (phi)
1b m. trumbo (ari)

phillies gets:
rp o. perez + c mid level prospect (ari)
sp j. crawford + ss e. suarez + of s. moya (det)

dbacks gets:
c b. holaday (det)
ss j. rollins + of m. byrd (phi)

tigers get a much better closer and a power bat to protect the batting order behind miggy

phillies get cheaper and get prospects but the main thing is, they don't pay a cent for papelbon, rollins or byrd

dbacks get a catcher who can help them and 2 veteran players who can also help, rollins can help the young ss the dbacks have and me a mentor to them and byrd can help also since he could take over for trumbo and produce more then he has
===============================
free agency (all money in millions)

p = player
c = club
bo = buyout

- sp k. maeda (international)
5 yrs $20. 00 ($5. 0 p in 6th yr)

rp k. uehara
1 yr $4. 00 + $1. 00 bo/$6. 00 c (for 2nd yr)

if c. torres (international)
ss h. ramirez
of r. castillo or y. tomas (international)

The Sox will not trade Uehara and nava unless they're blown away. That package won't get it done

(5)
(2)

Unrealistic

(6)
(3)

 

 

11 Aug 2014 17:26:21
SEA acquires: Pedro Alvarez, Chase Darnaud
PIT acquires: Tijuan Walker

(15)
