The Pirates need a 4th and 5th starter so here are there options
Pirates call up Tyler Glasnow to take over 4th starter
Pirates aquire CJ Wilson from Angels for Jeff Locke, and cash
Thoughts? Leave them down below!
02 Sep 2015 20:55:39
Pirates would need cash in the LAA deal, not the Angels. Glasnow is not ready. Just gave up 6 R in .1 innings last night. WHIP around 1.600

I don't think the Indians have the money to pull off all this. Heyward is going to get 120-150 million, Span is going to get a decent amount. Fister will cost a lot.

01 Sep 2015 20:05:26
No way would Justin Upton be batting 7th in that lineup. And instead of signing Joakim Soria, I'd rather sign Darren O'Day & Tyler Clippard.
02 Sep 2015 00:27:42
Cause tigers ownership is going to be like we already have like 200M in payroll why not sign guys that will cost us over another 200M
02 Sep 2015 01:19:46
I agree with TigersFan. Plus I think Jason Heyward would be a better signing than Upton. J-Hey can play right and bat 2nd, Iglesias can be a strong leadoff or 7/8 hitter and JD can move to left giving the Tigers a great defensive (and offensive) outfield. I also believe signing Zobrist and Gomes is unnecessary. Instead, use Moya, Collins, or Daniel Fields as a 4th outfielder, and use Nick Franklin and/or Daniel Castro at 2nd
02 Sep 2015 05:09:40
Both trades are horrible. Upton wouldn't be batting 7th. typical Homer fan
02 Sep 2015 11:30:31
Forgot to mention Nava and Perez from the trades as 4th outfielder candidates over Gomes
02 Sep 2015 14:01:59
None of this offseason speculation makes the tigers better. Worst post in a while. The tigers will spend their money on a high level bullpen help, SP and outfielder. But it will be players with better numbers then what you have mentioned in your post like Cespedes allthough a very high price one he is a strong candidate to return. Clippard for the bullpen, maybe Navarro as a back up catcher. They have some trade chips as well but have of the guys you talked about are over thehil. And Seattle is not going to vie up young talent for an over the hill player.

Red Sox are not going to sign Yoenis Cespedes when they have Bradley, Betts and Castillo in the outfield, as for Zimmerman there is a chance they go after him. Chamberlain and Simon there is no chnace they go after them. Dioner Navarro, Chris Young and Ramon Santiago are not worth the time for the Red Sox.
31 Aug 2015 19:43:13
Giants won't want Buchholz.
31 Aug 2015 08:22:32
I'm bored, so I'll offer my Giants offseason thoughts:
-Re-sign Mike Leake, 5/90. ($18M AAV)
-Sign Jordan Zimmermann, 6/144 ($24M AAV, might be on the low end)
-Pick up option on Nori Aoki ($4.7M).
-Develop Kelby Tomlinson into an OF (a thought that has been brought up a lot by the press, creating him into a super-utility player).
IF Adrianza/anyone else they care to sign on a bargain/minor league deal
RP Heston/Cain (whichever doesn't start)
In other words, not much changes on the offensive front. as long as guys stay healthy, not much needs to change.
With Hudson, Lincecum, among others walking, the Giants have a lot of money coming off the books. Adding Zimmermann and Leake would solidify the rotation and allow them to extend Crawford this offseason, thus avoiding arbitration.
Let me know your thoughts.
31 Aug 2015 14:57:05
I feel like leake will get around 12-15 per year and Zimmermann could get around that. I'd rather have romo or an established closer than Strickland
31 Aug 2015 18:07:39
I like it, although I could see someone else closing it out instead of Strickland.
01 Sep 2015 00:58:03
I wouldn't be surprised if Bochy gives a couple guys a chance during Spring Training, but from the looks of it, barring them picking up Casilla's option, the job looks like it could be Strickland's to lose. He is at his best when the team is ahead, and in "save-decisions" (which B-R counts as leads of 3 or less pitched in relief, any inning). that's always a huge plus when looking for a closer.
But I, too, could see them trying a couple of options. Wouldn't mind seeing Kontos get a chance.
01 Sep 2015 01:38:24
A 7-8yr deal seems more likely for Zimmermann. He doesn't turn 30 until may 23rd next year, he's stayed healthy, and he's pitched about 400 innings less than Price and Cueto.
The money per year will probably be about right. He's having kind of a down year in a bad division and if he doesn't get to pitch in a playoff game, will go into free agency with only 2 playoff games pitched. One good and one bad start.
01 Sep 2015 01:54:30
I could see the Giants kicking in some cash to unload Pagan's contract and sending him somewhere that needs some outfield depth. After that they could sign a guy like Austin Jackson or Will Venable as an option to patrol CF so Blanco can be a fourth outfielder, which he is fantastic at. Also I see them picking up Casilla's option. I doubt they sign two starting pitchers, as they seem keen on keeping Cain in the rotation.
01 Sep 2015 02:53:52
I like it agree
01 Sep 2015 04:59:33
I don't see the Giants dumping Pagan, eating some of his salary, and then getting a platoon option. At that point, just use Pagan as a bench guy.
31 Aug 2015 01:08:45
Tommy hunter 3/20
Trade Avery Romero 2B, and Nick Wittgren RHP to MIL for K-Rod and cash
Trade: Koehler, Adam Conley LHP, Austin Dean OF, Brad Hand to SD for Ross
31 Aug 2015 07:59:10
Fister will get more than 4/50.
01 Sep 2015 01:50:37
3/40ish is probably closer to what Fister will get considering age and his performance this year.
Unless Tommy Hunter is completely lights out the last month of the season and in any potential playoff appearances, he will be looking at a 1yr deal that won't even pay him the 4.65mil that he's making this year.
30 Aug 2015 21:16:35
Detroit Tigers Offseason
The Tigers need to and are willing to make splashes. Here are some signings I could see happening that would make sense and Illitch and Avila would be willing to do:
Sign Jason Heyward (4 yrs/60M)
Heyward provides Detroit with a left-handed bat in the top half of the order (something they've been missing for a while) and a great defender in right field (a must in Comerica Park)
Sign Doug Fister (3 yrs/40M)
A Fister re-union would be a good signing for the Tigers to bolster their rotation (he is an above average 2 or 3 guy in the rotation) and he knows the park well too from his first stint there
Sign Tyler Clippard (3 years/27M)
A closer, finally. Enough said. Signing Clippard explains itself, a closer (or at least a good setup guy) for the Tigers
Sign Brayan Pena (1 yr/3M)
Pena has been with Detroit (another re-union, I know) before and would be a good replacement if Avila walks (which could be likely even though his dad is GM)
Sign Antonio Bastardo (2yrs/8M)
A good lefty setup man to further help the pen

31 Aug 2015 08:00:28
Heyward is going to command $25M a year. I promise you that. a four year deal will cost a team $100M.
31 Aug 2015 13:54:33
Heyward is going to get a 7 year 100 million+ contract. Fister will probably get 5 years. The trade is awful, the Tigers should hold on to Moya and do the opposite of what they had been doing of trading young controllable players.
31 Aug 2015 14:08:20
Worst post I have seen in a while regarding the tigers. The trade is awful you don't trade talented prospects for no talent. Maurer his analytics are not very good for a relief LH who has over a 1.00 whip. Heyward is having a good season, after having to mediocre seasons, but not worth the money. You have two utility guys on the TIgers neither one of them can hit. Pena is a good offensive catcher not a good defensive catcher but I think he can do a better job then Avila so an up grade. Clippard is a set up man all the way and an occasional closer, worth the money but not worth top ten closer money.
31 Aug 2015 14:16:05
^7 years, 100m?
Pablo Sandoval got 5/100 last winter, and Heyward is significantly better.
31 Aug 2015 15:20:13
you didn't see the + sign did you. He will get more than 100 million for sure.
31 Aug 2015 16:55:12
I could also say New York City has 5,000+ people, but that is also deceiving. I don't see Heyward taking anything less than $150M
01 Sep 2015 00:02:20
ok next time I'll be more specific and give a definitive number, which I really don't think I need to do.
03 Sep 2015 00:20:55
Heyward is going to get over $150M, maybe over $200M.

Off season trade Not sure if this will work but I am sure other pieces will probably need to be included
Royals trade: Holland
Dodgers trade: Puig
Before you go off on me hear why I think this could make sense
Dodgers bullpen sucks it has like the third worst era in the NL and are loaded with outfielders
With Hollands arb raising and hosmer entering his walk season next year I believe they don't have the money to keep their young core together, they also get a replacement for Gordon (offer the QO and get a draft pick for him) Puig is an amazing defender and has a great arm
30 Aug 2015 19:36:24
At best, Puig is an average defender. 2 Defensive Runs Saved. 2 in 2014. he's not even in the top 20 right fielders in either season.
He is a total head case who is paid far more than any pre-arbitration outfielder would cost.
Ned Yost is a very patient, border-line liberal manager. he'd wring Puig's neck before Spring Training is even completed.
30 Aug 2015 20:57:28
I agree with a lot of what you said yes he is a head case and immature he's only like 25 and younger players are bound to make mistakes, but he also makes great plays. I feel like he would benefit if he contract was more like Dez Bryant of the Cowboys, if he makes mistakes in the offseason/season he doesn't start. And I don't mean for a game or two but for a week or so
31 Aug 2015 00:29:32
I think Holland is a superior closer, but no way the Dodgers make that deal.
31 Aug 2015 08:03:00
LBF, the Dodgers would be utterly moronic to not take that deal. Holland is a better guy to have around and they clearly have a significant need for better bullpen arms and less prima donnas.
It helps in both ways for LA.
31 Aug 2015 14:59:19
Obviously Dodgers would need to add a lot more for this to even come close to fair. Maybe puig and Holmes and others
30 Aug 2015 16:20:05
Cubs off sEason move:
Cubs trade: starlin castro, CJ edwards, Albert almora, Travis Wood
Padres trade: tyson ross, craig Kimberl
Cubs promote baez to play 2nd.
Let fowler walk wants to much money.
Sign David Price 6 years 250 million
Sign Zobrist as super utility man
Promote young outfielder to play center maybe Mckinney.
This means cubs are all in but why not with this young talent
30 Aug 2015 18:48:01
First trade is pretty awful. You can't promote someone in the offseason as there is nothing to play for. Price is not going to get that contract. 40 million a year seriously think before you make up a number.
30 Aug 2015 19:38:30
Please, Cubs. pay a guy $40M to play for the next 6 years. With the costs they'll have to pay out to guys like Arrieta, Rizzo and Bryant down the road, and the fact that Lester's cheapest year in his contract will be behind him. the Cubs would be hand-cuffed for a while.
You better hope everyone pans out.
30 Aug 2015 19:54:59
You think price is going to make over 40 million a year?!
30 Aug 2015 22:21:09
McKinney isn't a centerfielder and is still about a year or so away from being ready. Travis Wood is a non-tender candidate. Coghlan will probably get the UT guy role with AA still a possibility.
They do have to pay Arrieta but Rizzo is already under team control through 2021. The proposed contract is ridiculous but the Cubs could easily afford the more realistic 7-210ish.
02 Sep 2015 05:20:14
Lol do some research before posting. 6 and 250? Castro has zero value. Cubs will have to eat 60-80% of his salary to get anything for him, if not then Theo is a god as a gm.
30 Aug 2015 15:04:50
Yankees for 2016 and Free Agency
Sign Jeff Samarzdija 5y/85M
Trade John Ryan Murphy to the Braves for Wes Parsons
Call up Gary Sanchez to backup
Call up Rob Refsnyder
Call up Aaron Judge
Opening Day Lineups
30 Aug 2015 17:03:39
Samarzdija is going to get more than 85 million. Also what happens to Bird, Nova, and Beltran? And why a six man rotation. That should be aligned this way.
30 Aug 2015 22:35:24
4-60ish is probably Samardzija's contract ceiling, unless he dominates the rest of his starts.
31 Aug 2015 00:03:43
I forgot to put bench but Beltran and Bird are on the bench and Nova I forgot
31 Aug 2015 00:20:19
Six Man Rotation is for Pitchers to get more rest as the Yankees can avoid more injuries. Also Nova/Sabathia and BATMAN your rotation is wrong remember we sign Samardzija and no way Eovaldi is a 1, he wins a lot but he isn't a 1 starter
31 Aug 2015 08:06:37
Anyone who thinks Samardzija is getting 4/60 or anything in that ballpark is only fooling themselves.
Guys, Rick Porcello just got a $20M AAV extension.
Any pitcher who believes they are better will ask for it. Plus, the market for SPs will drive the price up on these guys so fast.
Samardzija will get $20-27M AAV. Trust me.
31 Aug 2015 13:57:08
I guess I failed to mention in post and setting a rotation that they don't sign him.
01 Sep 2015 02:38:08
If you can find a single instance of a pitcher with a 4.85 ERA and/or a career ERA over 4 making 20-27 mil a year or anything comparable to it, then I will trust you.
Samardzija is a case of hype over substance. There are still some dumb GM's out there but no is going to give up their first rd pick and pay a guy 20mil+ a year that is starting to look a lot more like Edwin Jackson than Jake Arrieta.
02 Sep 2015 05:22:56

You wouldn't be a very good GM.
How on earth does this help Detroit?
30 Aug 2015 14:39:45
it doesn't help Detroit.
01 Sep 2015 07:35:29
It actually DOES help Detroit. I'm a Tigers fan. We need bullpen help and left-hand hitting(non platoon). Have you seen the Yankees bullpen? They have AT LEAST four or five pitchers in their pen that I would love to have. Warren and Shreve are two of them. I would ask them for Betances and Gregorius but that might be a little too much.
01 Sep 2015 13:41:46
Iglasis is twice the player then anybody you have asked for. Gregorius is not going anywhere and neither is Iglasias. Drew has proven to be a very good bullpen pitcher. and I know the Yankees are not going to lessen their talent in the bullpen. So not going to happen.

The Giants will resign Leake, and he will cost much more than that. He is 28 years old, he will likely get a 5-6 year deal worth about 13 per year.
30 Aug 2015 01:01:28
Sabathia. NOOOOO. We don't want Sabathia, Beltran, or such.
30 Aug 2015 02:23:04
^^ wouldn't call Giants a lock to sign Leake but agree he will get wayyyy more money
30 Aug 2015 05:12:24
If the Yankees resign Stephen Drew they must be very delusional. And you do know there are only 25 men on a roster right, you have 26 listed. Also the Angels would never trade a young controllable starter for someone like Sabathia.
30 Aug 2015 09:11:07
Leake and Soria are going to cost a loooot more than that!

So how exactly are they going to sign Wade Davis when is not even a free agent? Eovaldi is not going to the pen he has done really well this year. All these moves are awful and make no sense.
29 Aug 2015 15:36:48
wade davis willbe a free agent^
29 Aug 2015 20:20:30
^Davis has an $8M option, which the Royals will almost certainly exercise that option.
He won't be a free agent.
29 Aug 2015 21:48:09
There's 2 options on his contract so no he will not be a FA get your facts straight
30 Aug 2015 05:18:10
So the Yankees spend money on Davis, then don't use him in the late innings?
And Beltran won't get you that return, highly doubt Teixeira would get that either
30 Aug 2015 11:02:18
He's not on any list I've seen.
30 Aug 2015 14:02:41
I've checked several sites with 2015 free agent lists and only one list Davis as a possible free agent, he has an option on his current contract.
30 Aug 2015 22:49:43
Davis has an 8mil team option and a 10mil team option next year. He's making 7mil this year.

Yea you make crazysull look sane. I've told you before draft picks other than the competitive balance picks cannot be traded. This trade is pretty awful and makes little sense.

HA. I think that's enough said
28 Aug 2015 20:49:36
How many times can I press unbelievable. You can't trade picks in baseball. Bradley Jr and Bucholz will not even get Upton himself. This is one of the worst posts I've seen in a while.
28 Aug 2015 21:35:18
The Padres already traded their 2017 3rd pick to the Mets for Sidd Finch.
28 Aug 2015 22:03:53
And the worst trade ever posted on this sight goes to.

You can't trade draft picks in the MLB.
28 Aug 2015 22:58:05
And even if you could trade draft picks. this is horrendous.
1st- Upton can't be traded, as he'll be a free agent. Boston can just sign him.
2nd- No way the Padres trade Shields AND Kimbrel and get an injury-prone, overrated pitcher (Buchholz) and an OF prospect who we have no clue what he's able to do over an entire season.
But since you don't know that draft picks can't be traded, I don't expect you to know this other stuff.

This couldn't be worse.
1. You can't trade draft picks unless it is a Comp Pick.
2. Dealing for Upton at this point makes no sense because the Red Sox aren't contending, and he is a free agent at the end of year, and the trade would make it so the BoSox can't even give him a qualifying offer.
3. Kimbrel alone is worth much more than the two guys in the deal, and adding in Shields (even though he has a big contract he is still valuable) would require more prospect talent going back to SD.
All in all a horrible and pointless trade.

Dear Redsox3344, you clearly do not follow baseball at all. The only draft picks that can be traded are the competitive picks. Also I assume this is an offseason trade. Which Justin Upton is a free agent and cannot be traded.

Trade Hector Santiago and Fernando Salas the the Cubs for Javier Baez, Albert Almora, and Jacob Turner
Trade Almora, Nick Tropeano, and Cam Bedrosian for Ryan Braun
Trade Erick Aybar and Jett Bandy for Travis d'Arnaud
28 Aug 2015 20:06:31
Not happening Braun really Milwaukee would want more than that
28 Aug 2015 21:47:42
There's a good chance Turner gets non-tendered and even without him as part of the trade, the Cubs would still say no.
28 Aug 2015 22:51:49
Take note of what it took Houston to get Carlos Gomez, times it by 2, and that's what is needed to get Ryan Braun.
Angels won't do it.
