In all honestly this season doesn't look like to be a promising for the Phillies. If they aren't above. 500 and do not have a winning record, I say its time for changes.
Fire Charlie Manuel, Rich Dubee, and trade the following.
Hitters- Ryan Howard, John Mayberry Junior, Jimmy Rollins.
Trade for young talent. Rather rebuild early than look like an embarrassment if I was in the Phillies position. (Phillies Fan)
Start more of the following players.
Bring up Darin Ruf put him at first. Second base would be Chase Utely shortstop would be freddy glavis third base that rookie fransen. The young talent needs to start now we have too much young talent going to waist.
22 May 2013 23:10:55
Phillies - Orioles
Phillies acquire: Jason Hammel, JJ Hardy, Tommy Hunter, Ryan Flaherty and 2 non top 20 prospects
O's acquire: Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley and a minor leaguer ( not a top prospect)
O's then recall Dylan Bundy to replace Hammel In rotation
22 May 2013 22:13:03
Wanted to amend my trade proposal. Instead of Lucas Duda, substitute Jordanny Valdespin. So, the trade is Gee, Parnell & Valdespin for Peter Bourjos, Joe Blanton, cash & and a minor leaguer.
Dont give bourjos, too much potential
22 May 2013 19:19:26
Braves acquire: Jeff Francouer, Tim Collins
Royals acquire: Jose Cantanza (triple A) Mark Lamm (double a) and Phillip Gosselin (double a)
Um, where will Francouer play?
I think the Royals are buyers not sellers.
Well I have to say i'm counting on Reed Johnson to really struggle, or be injured, now of course I don't want this to happen, but I thought if that happened, that solves a right handed bench bat, and a left handed reliever
22 May 2013 19:07:01
Marlins Acquire: Wsox #2, 5, 10 Prospects. Dylan Axelrod, and Addison Reed, Brent Morel
Wsox Acquire: GianCarlo Stanton and Placido Polanco
Finally, someone who knows what it will cost for a player like Stanton
Definitely better prospects and offers else where.
While you have offered top prospects and some major leaguers. Its not that good of a proposal. Just like the Angels the White Sox don't have a good farm system, they're just above the Angels. The only prospect you offered that seemed truly promising was the #10 prospect. And Reed. Morel isn't worth it, and Axelrod is about the same to me.
22 May 2013 19:03:30
Cliff Lee. under control for a few more years. Gives the starter they need. JE is prob going to NYY anyway.
Jacoby Ellsbury. FA at end of season. Clears payroll next year. With Lee and Halladay gone, the Phils will have 50mil or so to spend. They may have a shot at resigning him.
It is possible they resign him if he is traded there, but they just may want the draft pick instead. and do the Red Sox really need a starter? Something wrong with aces Buchholz and Lester? Also interesting that I'm not the only one who thinks that Ellsbury will join NYY next year as I don't believe they will get their payroll under 189 mil.
Lee is worth more than that
20 May 2013 05:36:11
A's politely decline, if Mets came back with Fulmer, Syndegaard, Nimo and Matteo they might find encouragement! Ged
N.B strike that after last nights performance against the Rangers you can't have Smith! Ged
I guess Sogard would go to the bench
19 May 2013 18:57:03
A minor league deal between the yankees and the Blue Jays. Yanks send Cody Epply & Bobby Wilson (currently at SWB) to Jays for Ricky Romero & Josh Thole. Jays need BP help; Yankees take a chance on Romero as a reclamation project. Thole give them insurance @ catcher (also a LH bat).
I don't like it because Romero has a major league contract and that would mean clearing a 40 man roster spot for him, which i'm not sure if I would like to see anyone on there go, well except for Ben Fransisco
I like Romero but I agree they would have to clear space on their roster. I would rather the Yanks promote a catcher from the farm system.
Francisco would go. He's been doing horrible lately.
Lately? Try the whole season so far.
19 May 2013 17:57:57
Instead of the major blow-ups for the Tigers, how about a couple simple roster changes for 2014 (the trades can be made either during the offseason or 2013 trade deadline):
Recall IN Hernon Perez and RP Matt Hoffman
Make Avisail Garcia a starter
Move Torii Hunter to left
Let SS Jhonny Peralta, IN Ramon Santiago, and RP Jose Valverde go as FAs.
Resign 2B Omar Infante to a 2-year contract, C Brayan Pena to a 2-year contract, RP Octavio Dotel to another 1+1, and RP Joaquin Benoit to a 1+1.
RELEASE DON KELLY.
Then make a couple simple trades:
SP Casey Crosby
1B Aaron Westlake
One non-Top 20 prospect
SS Dee Gordon
Since LAD has Hanley Ramirez, Gordon is a man without a position. After their trades, a good arm not named Zach Lee would be helpful.
SP Rick Porcello
RP Jose Ortega
RP Bobby Parnell
SP Domingo Tapia
One non-Top 20 prospect
The Mets get another good young arm for the rotation, and a bullpen arm to replace the now-traded Parnell. Tapia is a throw in, as is the filler prospect.
RP Phil Coke
Someone, anyone, we're not picky
JUST TAKE HIM!
If nobody wants him, non-tender this offseason.
C: Alex Avila
1B: Prince Fielder
2B: Omar Infante
SS: Dee Gordon
3B: Miguel Cabrera
LF: Torii Hunter
CF: Austin Jackson
RF: Avisail Garcia
DH: Victor Martinez
BN: Andy Dirks
BN: Brayan Pena
BN: Hernon Perez
BN: Nick Castellanos
SP: Justin Verlander
SP: Doug Fister
SP: Max Scherzer
SP: Anibal Sanchez
SP: Drew Smyly
RP: Al Albuquerque
RP: Bobby Parnell
RP: Joaquin Benoit
RP: Octavio Dotel
RP: Matt Hoffman
RP: Darin Downs
CL: Bruce Rondon
While not completely different from this years team the lineup would be a bit better:
Austin Jackson, CF
Torii Hunter, LF
Miguel Cabrera, 3B
Prince Fielder, 1B
Victor Martinez, DH
Avisail Garcia, RF
Dee Gordon, SS
Alex Avila, C
Omar Infante, 2B
That looks like a championship ballclub.
I'm the poster. I'm not picking on PIT, I'm just trying to get rid of Phil Coke. I don't care who takes him.
As a mets fan I would rather have tapia and parnell then porcello. We have enough pitching prospects with wheeler, montero, harvey, niese, etc. Only conversation I'd have with the tigers is about nick castellanos and they would be foolish to even consider the thought so mets deal won't happen.
Believable but too many moving parts
Personally I think Gordon is a downgrade from Peralta, especially with how Jhonny has been playing this year.
19 May 2013 12:56:49
Blue Jays Offseason

So bringing practically everyone back because its working SO well right now.
Finally a trade/roster proposal that's possible!
I say Jays decline Lind's club option
Jays not signing JJ
19 May 2013 03:39:57
After the all-star break the phillies will trade Utley, Rollins, Howard, Ruiz, Lee, and Adams
They need to keep some good players
They trade Lee to the Angels in june
Apparently there would only be Hamels and Papelbon then.
Unfortunately for you, I'm really certain the Angels will be sellers at this years deadline.
18 May 2013 21:31:41
U should add Phillies trades
They'll trade Howard and Rollins
Angels Get: Cliff Lee
Phillies Get: Kole Calhoun, David Carpenter, and Austin Wood
17 May 2013 21:10:41
KC: Alcides Escobar SS
NYY: Ivan Nova SP, Joba Chamberlain RP, & Slade Heathcott OF
I don't think the Royals want to trade Escabar, and I think the Yankees really want to keep Heathcott.
Escobar will be a Phillie
Yes because everyone is going to up being a Phillie.
Escobar will be a Royal. Oh, wait.
17 May 2013 21:07:01
TEX: Jurickson Profar SS
TB: Jeremy Hellickson SP, Alex Torres SP & Sean Rodriguez SS
If Texas trades Profar it'll be for an ace, like Lee or a hitting star like Headley
Phillies are getting profar
I doubt it, Keep telling yourself that. I don't think the Phillies have anything the Rangers want. Not sure if they would accept Lee back because they have pitchers and are getting more back in the next month with Lewis and Feliz coming back, Howard is way over-rated and extremely overpaid, no spots for Utley or Rollins and they have catchers.
I'm quite sure that Profar will end up in Tampa or Miami. I also think the Yankees are better possibility for Profar than the Phillies.
Howard is not over rated just over paid
Rangers would except - lee, half of Howard's contract, and either Ruff or Galvis
Anyways I really think pitcher wise the Rangers are probably hold out until Price is available.

This some sort of joke? Its going to take top prospects to get Stanton, not a pitcher that the Marlins can't afford or wouldn't want to pay.
Marlins laugh and hang up
Why are the twins involved in this?
The Twins and the White Sox do not mix with the Marlins. All 3 teams are looking to dump their high priced players in return for low cost prospects. Texas is probably the best fit for Miami. They have high end prospects like Jurickson Profar and Mike Olt, who are Major league ready. Stanton would be the perfect replacement for losing Josh Hamilton. H could fit right into their OF, probably left until Cruz becomes a FA. Then, he'll take over RF for the next 7-10 years. So, the most logical trade is Stanton for Profar, Olt & a pitcing prospect.
Yea why are the twins in this. All they do is recieve and not give. makes no sense.
If I would've known this earlier, I would have put a couple of prospects from the Twins. They have a lot of em you know
And the White Sox will give the Twins prospects, so the 2 teams in this trade that are in rebuilding processes will have their prospects
16 May 2013 15:16:05
Phillies get Stangton:
Marlins get: Pettibone, Jesse Bindle, Adam Morgan,
Nope, definitely better packages of players/prospects out there from other teams.
Phillies pitching staff will be the worst in baseball
No they have the second worst, Angels have the worst. Which is kinda sad since the Marlins are the worst team and they don't have the worst pitching.
Throw in Brown and Nolasco and you got it!
Never trade Brown he will be a all-star next year and become a MVP type player
Who is Stangton? A new car?
15 May 2013 21:12:15
Yankees DFA Chris Nelson and call up David Adams. Told you Nelson was a waste of a roster spot.
When you can get someone for basically nothing when your farm system is bare. I'd do it every time.
Ok so I'm going to put this in the right post this time, Their farm isn't bare, just most of the talent is at the lower levels and won't be ready til 2014-2015
I agree- the talent is on the lower level.
He got clamied off waivers
15 May 2013 13:21:27
Yankees Get: Alcides Escobar
Royals Get: Phil Hughes
Yankees get their future shortstop to replace Jeter.
Royals get a solid starter who can fill a spot behind James Shields.
Not sure if the Royals want to trade Escabar.
I agree. The youngster looks like a keeper. As a Yankee, I love Hughes but the window is slowly closing. I'm hoping the yanks make him the closer after Mariano. He is really good in the reliever closer role.
I wouldn't call it bare, more like their best are in the lower part of the system.
Ok so I guess my post about the the farm made into the wrong post section. But I really don't think Phil Hughes is going to be in the rotation much longer, I really doubt they bring him back next year to close. I think he'll be trade once Chen-Ming Wang and Pineda are ready to step into the rotation.
14 May 2013 14:10:28
Red Sox: Andre Eithier, and Luis Cruz
Dodgers: Gomes, Nava, and iglesias.
Red Sox: Andre Eithier, and Luis Cruz, josh Beckett
Dodgers: Gomes, Nava, and iglesias, R. Dempter
Redsox will NEVER ever get Beckett back.
Yea he was a huge problem with them and the other starters.
I'm assuming Victorino will go to left
Beckett for Nolasco. maybe Beckett would thrive in florida again.
14 May 2013 14:08:25
Yankees get: Profar and Olt
Rangers get: Phelps, Hughes, Mason Williams, and Nunez.
Don't think the Yankees want to trade Williams, maybe Betances, Almonte, or Flores instead of him.
Also throw that disrespectful bum Joba in there too. I'm tired of him.
I like Williams - move someone else
12 May 2013 22:00:34
DET - SF - TEX
- TIGERS GETS =
- GIANTS GETS =
- from DET:
- from TEX:
RP LOWE or FRASOR
- RANGERS GETS =
- SS SCUTARO
- OF BLANCO or TORRES
- SP CROSBY (3)
- RP MINORS (choice of 1 out of the 3 below)
HOFFMAN (14) MARTE (19) or ORTEGA (22)
- C HOLADAY (18) or CABRERA (19)
- IF CASTELLANOS (1)
- OF MINORS (choice of 1 out of the 3 below)
VAZQUEZ (4) or COLLINS (6) or FIELDS (8)
why the tigers do this:
THEY GET THE PITCHER THEY NEED TO SOLIDIFY THE MID TO END OF THE ROTATION AND SINCE LINCECUM IS A FORMER ACE AND 2 TIME CY YOUNG WINNER, HAVING HIM FOR THE #3 SPOT WOULD BE A GREAT PICKUP. HAVING PROFAR WOULD HELP ON DEFENSE SINCE THE RANGERS CHOSE TO EXTEND ANDRUS WHICH WOULD MEAN PROFAR IS THE ODD MAN OUT AND that's WHERE THE TIGERS COME IN
why the giants do this:
THEY GET A YOUNG PITCHER WHO IS NEAR AS GOOD AS LINCECUM HAS BEEN OVER THE PAST 2 YEARS AND HAVING HIM WOULD HELP THE GIANTS SINCE LINCECUM IS A FREE AGENT AFTER THIS SEASON AND THEY GET A VETERAN BAT WHO IS ON FIRE SO FAR THIS YEAR AND HAVING HIM PUT IN AT 2B WOULD HELP THE GIANTS MORE THEN SCUTARO AND HAVING DIRKS IS A WHOLE LOT BETTER THEN HAVING EITHER TORRES OR BLANCO AS THE 4TH OF AND HE CAN PLATOON WITH WHOEVER STAYS AND THE GIANTS WOULD GET A RP FROM THE RANGERS (FRASOR OR LOWE) WHO CAN HELP THE BULLPEN OUT AND A MINOR LEAGUE INFIELDER (NOT ANY OF THE TOP 5 THO)
why the rangers do this:
THEY GET YOUNGER AND GOOD PIECES FOR THE FUTURE AND THAT THEY WOULD ADD CASTELLANOS TO PERHAPS BE THE 1B OR LF (WHATEVER OLT don't PLAY) AND MURPHY IS MORE OF A 4TH OF THEN A FULL TIME STARTER AND FROM THE TIGERS THEY GET a lot OF YOUNG TALENT FOR JUST GIVING AWAY PROFAR (THE #1 PROSPECT IN MLB) BUT GETTING THE TIGERS #1, #3, (#4 / #6 OR #8) AND A FEW OTHERS FOR THEIR #1 PROSPECT, WOULD BENEFIT THE RANGERS
THE TIGERS DO SIMILAR TO WHAT THEY DID BY GETTING SANCHEZ WHEN HE WAS SET TO BE A FREE AGENT AND JUST RESIGN HIM
I WOULD RESIGN LINCECUM TO A 4 YEAR $45 MILLION DEAL
'14-'15: $9. 75 MILLION
'15-'16: $10. 75 MILLION
'16-'17: $11. 75 MILLION
'17-'18: $12. 75 MILLION
'18-'19: $15. 00 MILLION (CLUB OPTION)
his value has dropped a ton over the last 2 seasons so a 4 year $45 million (with $15 million option) is about where his value is right now
NEXT SEASON NEEDS
- IF BENCH
FREE AGENTS TO SIGN:
(1) 2B/SS/OF BEN ZOBRIST
4 years $45 million ($15 million club option)
- '14-'15: $9. 75 million
- '15-'16: $10. 75 million
- '16-'17: $11. 75 million
- '17-'18: $12. 75 million
- '18-'19: $15. 00 million (club option)
rays could just buy him out from his 2 club option years left and save money and give the RF spot to wil myers and ss could go to beckham next year and 2b can go to either lee or roberts and go a cheaper route then sticking with zobrist and zobrist would be the LF (with a few starts at 2B and SS)
(2) OF JASON KUBEL or COCO CRISP
2 years $10 million ($5 million club option)
- '14-'15: $4. 0 million
- '15-'16: $6. 0 million
- '16-'17: $5. 0 million (club option)
either one of these players would help the tigers with speed (crisp) or power (kubel) at the LF spot and avisail garcia can be a 4th OF next season
(3) RP CARLOS MARMOL
2 years $6 million ($4 million club option)
- '14-'15: $2.5 million
- '15-'16: $3.5 million
- '16-'17: $4. 0 million (club option)
the tigers have been linked to marmol in the past few years so his value would be at the highest with the tigers and signing him to a deal like this would help the tigers and that marmol would be playing for a contender like he hasn't had yet
(4) IF PLACIDO POLANCO
1 year $2 million ($3 million club option)
- '14-'15: $2. 0 million
- '15-'16: $3. 0 million (club option)
ever since polanco left, the tigers havnt had a good defense at 2B and bring him back so he can retire as a tiger would help him and the tigers since he would also be playing for a contender and be a veteran IF who can get 75% of the atbats at 2B with whomever getting the other 25% (like zobrist)
(1) RP OCTAVIO DOTEL
1 year $2 million ($3 million club option)
- '14-'15: $2. 0 million
- '15-'16: $3. 0 million (club option)
dotel has been a great addition to the bullpen and since dotel, benoit and valverde are free agents this offseason, dotel would be the cheaper option to bring back
(2) SP TIM LINCECUM (after the trade I mentioned)
4 years $45 million ($15 million club option)
- '14-'15: $9. 75 MILLION
- '15-'16: $10. 75 MILLION
- '16-'17: $11. 75 MILLION
- '17-'18: $12. 75 MILLION
- '18-'19: $15. 00 MILLION (CLUB OPTION)
like I said before, his value has dropped from a #1 starter to a #3/#4 starter over the past 2 years so getting him on a 4 year $45 million with a $15 million option would be just about what he's worth
Tigers roster after this trade + offseason
(i know the potential of all of this happening like I have it is slim to none but if the marlins trade away everything but stanton and a few empty seats fro nothing then this is possible)
LF: GARCIA / CRISP
this lineup would be one of the best put together lineups in baseball and adding profar helps on infield defense and having zobrist would help the tigers at 2B/SS/LF and he would get the majority of his atbats and he can even play 1B also
% OF ATBATS AT A POSITION
(2B 50%, LF/RF 25%, SS 25%)
C: MCCANN (not the braves catcher)
IF: POLANCO (2B/3B)
IF: MACHADO / PEREZ / NUNEZ (SS)
OF: GARCIA / CRISP
the bench would be a ton better for the tigers since they would get younger and more talented. james mccann should be ready for being the backup catcher for next season or they can sign a veteran (buck, navarro, (bring back) pena or shoppach) AND polanco would be the main go to guy for backup IF and get about 50% of the at bats at 2B when zobrist plays at SS and LF/RF which happens about 2-3 times a week AND it would be about the time to bring up a young IF like nunez or machado or perez to be the backup for SS or bring up a power hitter to be a backup but martinez would be the backup 1B AND garcia and crisp would be splitting time at LF
* note: I took out kubel and kept crisp as the OF to sign since garcia would be the power source in LF with crisp being the speed
1: CF JACKSON
2: RF HUNTER
3: 3B CABRERA
4: 1B FIELDER
5: DH MARTINEZ
6: 2B ZOBRIST (LF ZOBRIST)
7: LF GARCIA / CRISP (2B POLANCO)
8: C AVILA
9: SS PROFAR
when polanco is at 2B and zobrist is at LF then zobsrist stays at #6 and polanco would replace garcia/crisp at #7
No way Rangers do that
Holy crap that's long.
As a fellow Tigers' fan, I like the idea. But I think an idea is all it will be.
12 May 2013 19:04:34
Blue jays trade Romero, Johnson, drabek, rogers, Loup to padres for volquez, Clayton Richard, relivers bass, and Thatcher. Remember the last time the jays made a big trade with the padres?
Yes I remember the last big trade between those 2. but the difference was there were future Hall of Famers in that one, this I don't see one at all.
Nobody knew alomar was going to be a hof
Yea but he was pretty good, and I just don't see any of these guys as good as him or a future hall of famer.
The Rays have a club option for Zobrist I would be surprised if they decline it
What do the Rays and Zobrist's option have to do with the post?
I just didn't read it closely enough, sometimes I get confused with Blue Jays and Rays because they both have ays at the end
Actually, I take that back. I was trying to respond to the post above this one and I just lost track.
12 May 2013 13:33:52
RAYS GET: Jesus Montero, James Paxton, Hector Noesi, Lucas Luetge, Stephen Romero, Jesus Sucre
MARINERS GET: David Price, Mikie Mahtook (OF prospect)
The Mariners have King Felix
So what, It wouldn't hurt to have Price for a nice 1-2 punch. IDK if you noticed, but outside of Seattle a lot of teams have 2 aces.
I hate to tell you this but hernandez and iwakuma are already better than most teams "two aces" already
So then they could have 3 aces with a lefty in between those 2.
12 May 2013 05:33:45
Orioles get Chase Utley
Phillies get Jonatthan Schoop, Noland Remold, and a pitching prospect (Kline or Bobby Bundy.
It's Dylan Bundy not Bobby
I'm pretty sure that Bobby is Dylan's brother and he is in the Orioles organization.
I did check and there is a Bobby Bundy in the Orioles organization in AA, and he his the older brother of Dylan.
Cousin of Ted Bundy
12 May 2013 03:24:30
Phillies off season moves
Sing- Choo to a 4/32
Ellsbury to a 4/32
McCann to a 3/27
Garza to a 4/36
re-sing Utley to a 2/10
trade Rollins, Lee, Howard, Ruff, and cash for
Profar and Moreland
Trade Ruiz and Galvis for top prospect for the Rays
Phillies record 91-71 win the division
LOL. all those players are going to definitely sign for more money, and few will get more years. Ruiz and Galvis are not worth a top prospect maybe a mid level one. Also that is just horrible trade with texas.
Phillies need to get younger and more depth to the farm system, none of this does that.
McCann won't gay singed back because they want to start there back up. Ellsbury won't because Bradley is coming up. Maybe Choo gets singed back MAYBE
Isn't Young a free agent?
Phillies will proboly sign Michael young to a 2 year deal
12 May 2013 03:24:20
Texas receives Ryan Howard and part of his contract.
Phillies receive Profar.
*IF* Howard can stay healthy, he would be a great addition to the middle of their order.
Profar can take over for either Utley if he leaves Philly or Rollins when he eventually retire.
Look at Howard's stats and he is 33 years old. Look at Moreland's stats and he is 26. This trade amounts to the Rangers giving away the top prospect in baseball.
I have looked at their stats and saw last year Howard hit almost as many homers and more RBI than Moreland with a bad ankle and in 40 less games. Howard's ankle appears to be at least a little stronger than last year so I have to disagree
Are you not considering the 33 and 26. Its still not enough of a difference to give away the top prospect.
Howard:. 245 6 hr 22 rbi
Moreland:. 290 9 hr 18 rbi
No way Howard is worth Moreland and the top prospect in baseball.

New York Yankees Offseason
Resign Granderson 3 yrs
Resign Cano 4 yrs
Resign Chamberlain 1 yr
Resign Kuroda 3 yrs
Resign Youkilis 4 yrs
Resign Hafner 2 yrs
Resign Logan 5 yrs
Resign Overbay 2 yrs
Release Pettite (to Arizona), Hughes, (to FA), Wang (to FA)
Trade with Boston
Trade with San Francisco
Sign Loney 3 yrs
Sign Navarro 2 yrs
Sign C. Izturis 1 yr
Sign Francis 2 yrs
SS Derek Jeter
2B Robinson Cano
3B Alex Rodriguez
1B Mark Teixiera
CF Curtis Granderson
DH Kevin Youkilis
RF Ichiro Suzuki
LF Vernon Wells
C Francisco Cervelli
No no no no. none of this is happening, NYY and BOS don't make trades with each other. Pettitte will probably retire, Kuroda will probably retire or pitch in Japan again, Cano will sign for more than 4 years. Granderson I really don't think will be back, not because of the luxury tax thing which sounds to me there not doing anymore which I will explain later. Youkilis will not be getting a 4 year deal, he's probably only playing with the Yankees this one year. Joba will be gone, Maybe Hafner does come back, why in the world would you sign a reliever for 5 years? they seem to get 3 at the max. Overbay probably won't finish the year with the team, because Texiera will be back soon, and there's Youkilis and A-Rod. A-Rod hopefully retires after the season. Its awful trade with SF. and I don't see Cervelli as the catcher next year, Possibly McCann, Romine, or Murphy. Now to explain why I don't think they are getting under the luxury tax. A couple weeks ago on Yahoo, I read that they are highly unlikely to make under, and they know it and know they can't run a several billion dollar franchise like that.
You know David Aardsma isn't even on the team anymore right? He's with the Marlins Triple A team, Yankees cut him loose at the end of spring.
Your years given to he Yankee players are crazy. Logan 5 years lol.
A-Rod will DH and Youkilis will play third
A-Rod with either retire or be bought out.
They don't want Crawford or Scutaro.
They have Jeter and Cano
Gardner and Wells will platoon if this happens which will not!
Here's what I think the Yankees will do
Re-sign Robinson Cano
Buyout Alex Rodriguez's contract
Name David Adams 3rd baseman
Name Mark Montgomery closer
Get a left-handed starter
Get a DH
Get a lefty hitting left fielder
Vidal Nuno and Manny Banuelos are left handed starters who could take over next year. I agree with you about Adams and Montgomery. Slade Heathcott is left handed and could be there left fielder next year.
For the first guy who posted a comment here, I ask why don't you see Cervelli catching next year. He did a great job until he got hurt
I know he did a great job and I do like him, but I think they will take a shot at McCann. Plus McCann would be a better tutor for Sanchez when he's ready to be in the bigs, to me.
I don't think the Giants will sell 2 of their best bullpen arms plus their middle infield.
New York wouldn't trade Phelps like that, they need like Gomes or somebody more.

Texas gets Utley, Howard, lee, and Ruff. Phillies get Andrus and Mitch Moreland
Where would Utley play?? they Have Beltre at third, Kinsler at 2nd, and Profar would probably play SS.
Utley would be the DH
They already have a DH in Lance Berkman. And no he can no longer play in the field without having knee issues. Your trade proposal is very flawed and highly unrealistic.
Where would berkman play unless you bench morland and play berkman at 1B
Just bench Berkman.
Utley is getting to old so and Andrus is a better player and Howard he's to streaky and he's 8 yrs older, and the Rangers would get players who have 2 AVERAGE years left on them and pay them more than the players thay have now. That doesn't make scence.

Cubs get : Stanton, mason hope (19)
Marlins get: Baez (#1 prospect), vogelbach (#11), jae-hoon ha (12), arodys vizcaino (5)
Marlins get tools to rebuild at cornerstone positions. Cubs get a guy that will bring more fanfare and spark a solid top of the lineup with Castro rizzo and Stanton. Works out for both teams.
What will the Cubs do with Schierholtz
