•Sign Jason Heyward 10/200

•Sign Jordan Zimmermann 5/110

•Trade LHP Hector Santiago and RHP Nick Tropeano to the A's for 2B Brett Lawrie and 3B Danny Valencia

The Angels have a lot of young pitching that they can deal and fill 2 holes and the A's get 2 good controllable pitchers which any team can use.


Weaver/Shoemaker/Skggs/Wilson compete for the final 2 spots.

Minn trades Plouffe
LAA trades Bedrosian and ptbnl

Since agreement for park seems to be in place makes Plouffe expandable for bullpen depth.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

29 Nov 2015 05:41:31
Not quite enough for Plouffe but a solid starting point. Maybe a Nate Smith would do it.

Just a thought
Padres trade: Shields and cash
O's trade: Hardy and maybe a Bundy?
Other might need to be included but fills holes for both teams O's get an ace Padres get a SS and a potential ace if he stays healthy.

Believable1 Unbelievable2

29 Nov 2015 03:03:32
Can't see it happening. Hardy's days as SS are numbered. And Bundy is a serious question mark with his health.

Agree1 Disagree1

29 Nov 2015 03:10:59
No. Bundy? No!

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Nov 2015 04:04:38
I don't understand why the O'so do this, you even say that Bundy is a potential ace if healthy. Plus Shields has a albatross of a contract considering his production last year was not at the same level as with the Royals. Also the O'so lose a pretty good shortstop.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2015 05:35:17
Hardy for Shields makes some sense I think as both are under meh contracts, but including Bundy would one side the deal to San Diego.

Cubs trade Baez

I think Baez is ridiculously overrated, but he's still more valuable than C. J. Wilson.

29 Nov 2015 01:15:54
No need for hicks they have Vazquez, it would most certainly have to be Panda going to the Padres not Hanley since Myers is playing 1B I think? And that's the only position Hanley might be able to play compentivly other than DH. No need for Davis either. and apparently Kimbrel is going to be in AAA or somewhere else since you don't have him in the bullpen.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2015 02:02:23
What about Christian Vasquez? They might platoon Vazquez and Swihart.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2015 02:25:12
so you have 22 guys on the roster, where are the other 3. I think they are more likely to sign Price than Cueto.

Agree0 Disagree1

29 Nov 2015 03:35:50

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2015 04:24:17
I forgot about Kimbrel. so 7th inning would be Clippard. 8th inning would be Uehara and the closer would be Kimbrel. Also I only post the long relief pitcher, the seventh inning guy the setup and the closer.

Realistic trade options for Yasiel Puig:

1) Dodgers send Puig to Cleveland for SP Carlos Carrasco or SP Corey Kluber. Both teams deal from a position of strength to fill a weakness.

2) Dodgers send Puig to Tampa for SP Alex Cobb and RP Jake McGee. Puig's modest salary would be welcomed by the Rays; Cobb and McGee combined make more than Puig. Tampa has pitching to deal, and could use the offense.

3) Dodgers send Puig to Baltimore for SP Ubaldo Jimenez and RP Brian Matusz. The O's owe those two guys well over $15 million this year. LA might be willing to pay those salaries to fill holes and rid themselves of Puig. This sends him to the other league and the other coast. Other players might be added for balance.

4) Dodgers send Puig to the NY Mets for a SP such as Zach Wheeler or Steven Matz. Puig could play CF if needed, and would definitely give the Mets offense it needs.

While none of these are likely, they are in order to likelihood. The Dodgers may trade Puig, who has reportedly fallen out of favor with the players.

There aren't many other options, as most teams don't have what LA would want in return; such trade rumors will be more likely next July, if the Dodgers are trailing the Giants in the NL West, and Puig is being identified as a clubhouse cancer.

Believable2 Unbelievable4

28 Nov 2015 23:41:05
Good proposals, but I doubt Cleveland deals Kluber or Carrasco for Puig.

Agree3 Disagree1

28 Nov 2015 23:42:43
These are terrible puig is overrated the Indians one is really funny y would they give kluber and Carasco.

Agree1 Disagree3

29 Nov 2015 00:00:56
decent proposals. Rays or O's are most realistic.

How about Puig And Ryu to Jays for Bautista?

Agree0 Disagree1

29 Nov 2015 00:27:27
this is terrible 😆.

Agree1 Disagree1

29 Nov 2015 00:42:09
minnow75 as a jays fan I would love that if it happened but are you crazy Puig has more value than Bautista straight up plus a decent pitcher as well maybe you shouldn't be doing sugeestions.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2015 01:17:48
Hahaha nice try no way in a million years Dodgers trade Ryu and Puig for Bautista. O's trade is the worst why would the Dodgers want Jimenez? He sucks other than that very good trades.

Agree1 Disagree2

29 Nov 2015 02:26:38
Jbryant you really should read because he said Kluber OR Carasco. And these aren't that bad at all.

Agree1 Disagree1

29 Nov 2015 03:06:44
Orioles don't seem to be in a position to deal their #1 pitcher for a guy who seems to draw negative attention every other week, it seems.

I also seriously doubt the Indians would move Kluber unless they are completely blown away. Carrasco seems very likely.

The other two aren't too shabby.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2015 03:15:54
Thanks, Batman.

I think the Dodgers will open the season with Puig in the OF, but as I said, these are reasonable, though not likely.

minnow, with Puig's age and paycheck compared to Bautista's, there is not way LA would make that deal, even without Ryu.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2015 03:34:09
Maybe Jays have to add in my proposal, I'll give you that. But why all the love for Puig. He's a head case, injury prone and as far as potential-so do a hundred other players.
Also, Ryu is coming off a pretty serious injury, all bets are off on how he comes back from it. Only reason I'm trying to unload Bautista is I'm convinced he is leaving after this year so I want them to get something for him.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2015 03:36:54
I like most of them.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2015 04:39:06
Interesting the people who think this is bad are the ones who couldn't make a good trade if they tried.

Not enough for Puig. Not close.

If you had said Taijuan Walker, then you're getting close.

Agree2 Disagree3

28 Nov 2015 23:31:49
Puig is a huge head case and cancer to a team, I don't think either team would make this trade.

28 Nov 2015 23:58:40
Seriously bob stop.

Agree0 Disagree2

29 Nov 2015 00:15:52
^Why stop? Seattle could just sign Span or Fowler and keep Paxton and the Dodgers wouldn't take that package.

Agree2 Disagree0

29 Nov 2015 02:38:53
Just stop talking about Puig period you never have anything nice to say about him so stop.

Agree0 Disagree1

29 Nov 2015 05:45:57
Sorry if you love Puig, but his value right now is at the lowest of his career, and getting Span and keepig Paxton would be much better for Seattle.

Tiger/Red Soxs

Tigers Trade: Sanchez
Red Sox Trade: Devers and Kopech.

Believable3 Unbelievable8

28 Nov 2015 19:58:43
Complete overpay for Anibal. The Red Sox are desperate but not that desperate.

Agree3 Disagree2

28 Nov 2015 20:06:53
I agree with nyy. I would rather the Sox spend big on at least one guy such as Price, then give the other starts to Porcello, Buchholz, Rodriguez, Owens and perhaps Miley than to deal for a retread such as Anibal.

Agree4 Disagree4

28 Nov 2015 20:08:12
In my dreams, the Sox sign Price, then deal Panda and/or HanRam for another SP such as James Shields.

I would be okay with guys such as Porcello, Owens, Buchholz and Rodriguez in the 3-5 slots in the rotation, but asking more is probably foolish.

Agree4 Disagree2

28 Nov 2015 17:15:42

Angels get Ethier and Zach Lee
Dodgers get CJ Wilson

A's get Cowart, Bedrosian
Angels get Valencia.

Believable7 Unbelievable10

28 Nov 2015 18:07:53
Umm. Either can get more than Wilsonp.

Agree2 Disagree7

28 Nov 2015 19:59:57
A middle of the rotation pitcher in a contract year for an overpaid, slightly above average platoon outfielder sounds about fair.

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Nov 2015 20:09:38
Ethier and Zach Lee? For Wilson? Really?

Agree3 Disagree3

28 Nov 2015 20:36:02
Zach Lee for Wilson would get it done. Angels don't need Ethier.

Agree3 Disagree2

28 Nov 2015 20:38:42
Ethier isn't a platoon player if he was on another team he'd be a starting OF he can hit .280 about 30 doubles and 20 homers and barely strikeout. Dodgers have Kershaw Ryu Anderson McCarthy eventually wood and possibly another ace via free agency. So please tell me where Wilson who sucks by the and is just a wanna be starter would fit in that rotation?

Agree1 Disagree4

28 Nov 2015 20:50:12
Eventually Wood and possibly another ace via free agency means 2 spots are open in the rotation is how I read that.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Nov 2015 22:22:47
Uh, last time I checked the Angels are in dire need of a left fielder.

Actually, CJ Wilson for Ethier might work if some toss-ins are added.

Agree2 Disagree1

28 Nov 2015 23:04:32
"eventually Wood"

Is he injured or something? You shoulda said "eventually McCarthy". Wood has been a solid young pitcher ever since 2013. He's going to be apart of the Dodgers for a while, barring any other moves.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Nov 2015 23:54:51
Ethier is not a left field quality the Angels are looking for.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2015 00:00:34
I forgot I comma I meant McCarthy (eventually), wood.

28 Nov 2015 15:54:06
Athletics receive: Michael Pineda

Yankees receive: Brett Lawrie.

Believable4 Unbelievable9

28 Nov 2015 16:28:32
where would he play?

Agree2 Disagree3

28 Nov 2015 16:41:54
He would play second. And then the Yankees would trade Refsnyder/Gardner for a controllable starting pitcher.

Agree7 Disagree4

28 Nov 2015 18:09:28
Or just keep Pineda, platoon RR and Ackley at 2B and trade Gardner for a controllable SP.

Agree5 Disagree3

28 Nov 2015 20:10:08
I agree with Clark.

Agree1 Disagree1

28 Nov 2015 21:40:25
Clark couldn't agree with you more. that's exactly what they seem like they are going to do. And nyy15, last I checked he only plays 3rd.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2015 22:23:16
Lawrie can play second, but is primary a 3B.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Nov 2015 04:11:59
Tyson Ross, Brandon Maurer to MIN

Tyler Jay, Nick Gordon, Kohl Stewart, Adam Brett Walker II, Logan Darnell to SD

Way to much for Ross and Maurer. Pink, maybe this just isn't you're thing.

Agree7 Disagree1

28 Nov 2015 14:40:58
Minnesota passes.

Agree6 Disagree1

28 Nov 2015 20:13:01
I like Ross to the Sox for Jackie Bradley Jr.

I like Panda to the Padres for Shields.

I would love for both to happen. Hell, Boston overpaid for Kimbrel. Send JBJ and Panda (and a prospect) to San Diego for Shields and Ross.

Agree3 Disagree2

28 Nov 2015 23:11:10
We aren't that desperate for bullpen and rotation help. There's a guy named Jose Berrios you should look up. Tyson Ross would just take his spot and that would put Berrios even farther back on the depth chart. Padres like Maurer, they want him to set up, maybe even close for them. We have many bullpen prospects who could be ready by mid-2016. As much as I like Tyson Ross and Maurer, they would create a big ass problem with Minnesota.

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Nov 2015 00:26:27
Just throwing this out there since the Rays won't be able to afford McGee in the coming years.

To San Francisco Giants
LHP, Grayson Garvin
LHP, Jake McGee
C, Rene Rivera

To Tampa Bay Rays
LHP, Steven Okert
C, Andrew Susac

Just an idea, Rays can use Okert in their bullpen and Casali + Susac would be a good combo behind the plate. Giants get a young lefty, a hard throwing reliable reliever, and a decent guy to back up Posey. Let me hear your opinions.

Believable5 Unbelievable11

28 Nov 2015 01:34:51
Giants have Susac, Sanchez, and Trevor Brown.

They don't need anymore guys to back up Buster Posey.

Agree3 Disagree2

28 Nov 2015 01:59:27
He has susac going to Tampa.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Nov 2015 03:20:28
Giants could deal Susac, but this is doubtful.

Atlanta apparently wants a young catcher to replace Bethancourt. How about Susac for a Braves P?

Agree2 Disagree1

28 Nov 2015 04:29:13
I'm aware he has Susac going to Tampa. Even if that's the case, they still have Sanchez and Brown, who are both younger and offer more upside than Rivera.

Agree2 Disagree2

28 Nov 2015 14:19:13
It think the point nate is trying to make is that the Giants have plenty of backup catchers and don't need another.

Agree3 Disagree0

28 Nov 2015 16:10:00
I thought was rather obvious, I guess not.

Thanks for helping these guys understand, Batman.

Agree3 Disagree1

28 Nov 2015 20:34:24
I was hoping that people wouldn't focus on a throw in player like Rivera in a deal that includes an All-Star caliber reliever.

Agree0 Disagree5

28 Nov 2015 22:21:07
Even still, the Giants wouldn't give up that package for a reliever. At all.

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Nov 2015 22:24:01
Then don't include him, rem.

29 Nov 2015 02:03:08
Alright, fair enough boys.

Rays offseason
Sign Byrd 2/10

Trade beckham and Brandon Guyer to padres for derek Norris

Rays trade loney and nick franklin
To pit for Alvarez.

Believable7 Unbelievable5

28 Nov 2015 01:35:28
Why would the Padres want two backup guys for a legitimate starting catcher?

Agree3 Disagree1

28 Nov 2015 13:55:41
Beckham can be there shortstop and Guyer is a good out fielder that can start and Norris wasn't great last year he hit 14hr which isn't bad but he only hit .250 so it's not a huge upgrade so that's why it's not better prospects.

Agree0 Disagree2

28 Nov 2015 14:20:17
Padres can get a much better return for Norris.

Agree2 Disagree1

28 Nov 2015 17:18:24
Maybe so but if the rays are going to overpay they would be better of overpaying for somebody like lucroy.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2015 18:15:24
If you say lucroy one more time I swear I'm going to freak out. He will not be traded for at least another 7 months. And if/when he is I will bet a million dollars he won't go to the Rays for the sorry packages you suggest. You want him so bad? Start with Smyly, Odorizzi, Moore, Cobb any one of those and GOOD prospects. Guys I'm starting to suspect that this is another one of CrazySulls accounts. Neither of them can seem to get it through their head that the things they want to happen won't happen no matter how many times they suggest it.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2015 21:41:58
Jbryant do have some sort of crush on Lucroy or something.

Agree2 Disagree1

27 Nov 2015 21:12:42
I'm going to give Natedub credit for suggesting this I think it makes sense
Braves trade: Freeman
Cardinals trade: Wacha or Martinez, Marco Gonzales, Seth Maness, Patrick Wisdom
Braves would get 3 very good pitchers and a solid 3B.

Believable3 Unbelievable11

27 Nov 2015 22:32:27
Makes little sense. The Cards traded Shelby Miller last year for Heyward, lost John Lackey to free agency, and will not have Lance Lynn after surgery. St. Louis doesn't have pitching to deal.

Agree6 Disagree1

27 Nov 2015 23:13:59
Last I checked Lackey is still a free agent so they haven't lost him. Also I see them as a dark horse for a price, Zimmermann, Kennedy maybe, heck maybe cueto. Who has more value a Martinez who showed he couldn't go a whole season and prospects or a guy with pop that's one of the best 1B. I'd go with the 1B.

Agree0 Disagree5

28 Nov 2015 03:24:38
This was Martinez's first season as a SP. Yeah, he ran outta gas. So?

Lackey is a free agent. Unless they re-sign him, they lost him.

The Cardinals are a model organization. They will not trade a good, young, cost-controlled SP such as Martinez for Freeman, who draws a big check, then be forced to sign another highly-paid SP in free agency to replace him. Won't happen. They let Pujols go because of the drain that would have put on the payroll.

Agree4 Disagree2

28 Nov 2015 04:23:31
Martinez was also an All-Star, so.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Nov 2015 04:30:03
I'm giving LBF an A+ on that analysis of the Cardinals.

Good points.

I believe that is to much for Papelbon.

Agree8 Disagree3

27 Nov 2015 22:33:42
That probably leaves Detroit out of the playoffs, even if it all happened.

Agree3 Disagree1

28 Nov 2015 02:40:55
WAY too early to say who will or won't be in the playoffs next season.

Agree1 Disagree1

28 Nov 2015 03:25:12
And do you believe Paps would be a happy camper setting up for K Rod?

Agree1 Disagree1

28 Nov 2015 14:22:01
True it is too early to predict who will be in the playoffs next season. However this doesn't improve the Tigers that much and look how they were this past season.

Agree1 Disagree1

28 Nov 2015 15:25:56
Don't think for a second that as teams make moves, they don't consider whether or not they have enough to make the playoffs. A team in a rebuild, like Cincinnati, knows they won't. A team that just made the postseason, such as Toronto, wants to return, and is making moves to get back there. Then you have a team such as Detroit, that had gotten accustomed to being there; they expect to be there every year, and will make moves this winter to do so.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Nov 2015 17:07:10
Cardinals get - 1B Freddie Freeman
Braves get - 1B Matt Adams, SP Tim Cooney, SP Luke Weaver.

Believable2 Unbelievable11

27 Nov 2015 17:46:54
Not even close to enough.

The Cardinals can do one of two things to make a trade for Freeman:

1. They can either send the bulk of their good farm pieces,


2. They can send Michael Wacha or Carlos Martinez to Atlanta.

Agree6 Disagree2

27 Nov 2015 18:08:22
I could see Martinez and other going to Atlanta for Freeman.

Agree2 Disagree4

27 Nov 2015 22:36:33
I agree that this would not net Freeman for the Cardinals. But St. Louis won't be sending Wacha or Martinez that way either.

St. Louis could offer Adams, either Grichuk or Piscotty, and perhaps Marco Gonzalez or Seth Maness. The Cards could then focus on re-signing Jason Heyward.

Agree2 Disagree2

28 Nov 2015 14:22:31
This is horrible, the Braves will get a bigger return for Freeman.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Nov 2015 17:03:30

Padres get - SP Brian Johnson, 3B Garin Cecchini, 2B Sean Coyle, RP Edwin Escobar.

Believable2 Unbelievable11

27 Nov 2015 17:48:24
Easily the worst trade I've seen on here in the last week, at least.

The Padres got significantly more for Craig Kimbrel. So, while I'd love to see the Padres get screwed over, this isn't happening.

Agree4 Disagree4

27 Nov 2015 22:37:20
SF, that is fricking terrible. That package would not get Ross in Beantown, let alone Shields.
