Another delusional Spankee fan. Believe every team will give up superstars for marginal talent at best.

Brad Hand and Francisco Lindor will both be in the last full year of control. Lindor for his ARB III is projected above $ 25 MM. Brad Hand has a club option for $ 10 MM ($ 1 MM buy out) . This addition to the yankee payroll. $ 35 MM, would warrant good, not elite talent. The guys chosen. could vary. Deivi Garcia is a little guy who doesn't fit with the kind of hurler the indians typically covet, so he could be replaced. The indians expressed their interest in Clint Frazier by trading him, so he could be replaced. Estevan Florial is an interesting prospect that ran face first into the wall when facing advanced minor league pitching. The Indians have several guys just like him. they don't need more. So. three of the six guys may not work for the Indians.

The other guys in this deal would be serviceable for the Tribe. So, we'd start with Volpe, Voit and Loaisiga. Add a pair of "better" prospects in Kevin Alcantara and Antonio Gomez, while "throwing in" and Miguel Andujar and call it a done deal.

and make no mistake. the Yankees are not the only game in town when it comes to receiving Frankie Lindor, even for a single season in return.

The Mookie + Price and Ca$h deal seems to be stalled.. The structure of the deal originally reported that the Dodgers traded Maeda to the Twins for Graterol. Graterol was then flipped to the Red Sox along with Verdugo to complete the deal. Turns out, the LAD / Red Sox deal had the Red Sox doing the flipping of Maeda to the Twins.. not the LAD's. The Red Sox can now deal Maeda to the Twins for Graterol plus a top 10 from the Twins farm system while keeping Graterol in the deal or the Twins will give up a prospect from 11-20 along with Graterol for Maeda.

So, Boston holds the reigns on what's going to happen.. They can accept the original deal (unlikely) or the Twins can add a prospect:

Boston's 1st choice for the additional prospect = Jhoan Duran

Twins' choise for the additional prospect = Jorge Alcala

or the Red Sox will trade Maeda to a team like the Atlanta Braves:

Boston gets Kyle Muller and William Contreras

Atlanta gets Kenta Maeda

Making the Dodgers/Red Sox deal complete..

Thoughts?.

Now that the dodgers/red Sox trade is over. Dodgers still need at least one credible arm in the rotation.

Dodgers receive: Mike Clevinger

Indians receive: Keibert Ruiz and Josiah Gray

Believable3 Unbelievable11

The Indians could get significantly more than that for Clevinger.

Agree6 Disagree4

13 Feb 2020 06:22:40
Before y'all continue to downvote me, consider the following:

From 2018-2019, Clevinger had 8.7 WAR. That's 11th. It's just abover Syndergaard (8.5) and Strasburg (8.1). He's just barely below Aaron Nola.

Syndergaard's price tag was monstrous and Strasburg just received 35M a year. Clevinger will make 4M this year and isn't a free agent until 2023.

The price tag will, and absolutely include at least one top ten prospect, and at least 1 major-leaguer with control. You're probably looking at 16-20 years of control for the return for Cleveland. It will be a massive haul.

For LA, that package would begin with Gavin Lux, and probably include someone like Julio Urias and then at least one really good prospect (Gonsolin, Gray, Graterol) . It'd be a tough pill to swallow for the team that gets Clevinger.

Agree0 Disagree5

Just posting this for posterity sake:

Dodgers:
Betts
Price
Cash

Red Sox:
Verdugo
Graterol

Twins:
Maeda

My goodness, what an absolute haul for Boston. 12 years of team control (for 2 50+ FV players) for a horrible contract in Price and a rental of Betts.

Red Sox not having to take on a bad contract was a big key. And getting legitimately good young players was even better.

Good trade overall since the primary objective was to shed payroll. I still think the Red Sox could've gotten more. Verdugo is a great pick up and a future all star. Only time will tell on how this trade works out.

It's hilarious that my presence is spawning troll accounts. It was a valiant attempt, Insider27. Really good attempt, but not quite close enough.

Try again a little bit harder next time.

Agree0 Disagree1

The amount of nonsense about "top 100 prospect lists" is pretty silly. Those lists are compiled by people who don't work for MLB front offices. We don't know where the Red Sox would rank Graterol.

Also, don't forget that Mookie Betts is a rental who is almost all but a sure thing to test free agency. Teams aren't giving up the laughably absurd packages this site has suggested for just one year of him and no guarantee he'll sign an extension (he won't sign an extension) .

Until we know how much money they are sending to LA, we know they shaved over 100M in total dollars, and nearly 50M just for 2020 alone. They got 2 MLB-ready youngsters out of the deal, that's 12 years of service time in exchange for 100M in salary (including a rental) .

I'm not sure what people honestly think the Red Sox could have gotten in return, but they are delusional if they think it's more than this.

Sorry Thestatbook, you assumed wrong. I just got back from Las Vegas so you might have to search for a different Troll. As for your post, I actually agree with you. I don't see why Bloom is taking so much heat for the return. Price had an awful contract and Betts made it clear he wanted to test FA. To grab two solid guys in Verdugo and Downs, they now can use their flexibility to sign Devers and Benetendi to long term deals.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Feb 2020 06:23:35
Red Sox Receive:

SP Joey Luchessi
OF/1B Wil Myers
Mlb #50 prospect C Luis Capusano
Prospect SS Gabriel Arias

Padres Receive:

OF Mookie Betts
SP David Price
$20 mil

I think the Red Sox would love too shed all that money, but do the padres agree? I think with the Sox throwing in the cash would help the padres absorb all that money for this year. Your thoughts?

Believable0 Unbelievable7

Taking on Wil Myers and his albatross of a contract is probably more than enough to balance the scales.

David Price is useful. Wil Myers is near replacement level.
