MLB Rumors July 22 2014
22 Jul 2014 20:55:00
Pirates get: A. J. Burnett
Phillies get: Nick Kingham & JaCoby Jones
22 Jul 2014 20:35:12
Pirates Get-Cole Hamels, Antonio Bastardo, Maikel Franco
Phillies Get-Pedro Alvarez, Harold Ramirez, Jin-De Jhang, Jose Tabata, and Brandon Cumpton
22 Jul 2014 19:54:53
New York Yankees send:
CC Sabathia, Mark Teixeira, A-Rod, Brian Roberts and one million of dollars in cash.
Minnesota Twinkees send:
Bvron Buxton, Miguel Sano, Brian Dozier and Glen Perkins.
Yankees would be crazy to consider this deal. It leaves them a big hole to fill at 1B and does nothing to fix the starting rotation.
Yankees just got Headley to play 3B. They don't need to take a huge chance and try to develop Sano.
Yankees won't let that happen
Why would the twins sell their future to take on hundreds of millions of dollars worth of aging veterans?
CC Sabathia is hurt
A-rod can't be traded because he's suspended and Tex is hurt
22 Jul 2014 18:42:03
Yankees just traded 3B Yangervis Solarte and RHP Rafael DePaula to the Padres for 3B Chase Headley and cash.
22 Jul 2014 17:44:37
Pirates get: Anthony Rizzo
Cubs get: Pedro Alvarez
Pedro Alvarez can't hit for crape. Rizzo on the other hand is batting 300.
Why would the cubs do that
22 Jul 2014 17:35:22
Phillies trade OF Marlon Byrd
Mariners trade LHP James Paxton and OF Gabriel Guerrero (Vlad's nephew)
22 Jul 2014 16:52:20
Chicago cubs receive:
Oakland athletics receive:
22 Jul 2014 16:26:34
Boston gets Stanton and Tulo
Miami gets Betts, Bradley Jr, Renaudo, and two prospects from Colorado
Colorado gets Bogaerts, Owens, Ball, and Cishek
22 Jul 2014 15:11:25
Boston gets C Montero & OF Ross from AZ, RP Luetge, SP Prospect Pike from Sea
AZ gets RP Wilhemson & Franklin & OF-IF Ackley from Sea, C Prospect Levarnway & SP Prospect Webster from Boston
Sea gets SP Lester & OF-DH Gomes from Boston, OF Parra from AZ
Boston doesn't need another catcher
I think this just ridiculous. And Lavarnway really isn't a prospect anymore.
I can see some good things here, but not enough. If Vazquez is as good as he looks now, with Ross around, no way Boston needs Montero.
You could modify things like this :
Boston gets Seattle's Wilhelmson (especially if they deal Miller), Pike, RP Pryor, DH Montero and Erasmo Ramirez
Seattle acquires Lester and Gomes
then Arizona deals Parra to Mariners for Franklin (especially if they deal Hill to the Blue Jays)
22 Jul 2014 05:36:51
Seattle needs to find offensive help before the deadline and possibly another arm. If they do they will be in the run for the wild card all the way through september. Here's what they do
Seattle gets: OF Matt Kemp, $40m for his contract
Dodgers get: Sp Tyler Pike, C Tyler Marlette, SS Chris Taylor
Seattle gets: OF Curtis Granderson, $25m for his contract
Mets get: 2B/of Dustin Ackley, OF Gabriel Guerrero
Seattle gets: SP Cliff Lee, OF Marlon Byrd
Philly gets: SP James Paxton, 2B Nick Franklin, SP Victor Sanchez, SP Brandon Maurer, OF Julio Morban
1- Cf James Jones
2- RF Curtis Granderson
3- 2B Robinson Cano
4- LF Matt Kemp
5- 3B Kyle Seager
6- DH Marlon Byrd
7- 1B Justin Smoak
8- C Mike Zuni no
9- SS Brad Miller
Why would Seattle want Cliff Lee back?
22 Jul 2014 04:51:37
Tigers get: Stanton & Cishek
Marlins get: Castellanos, Travis, Ray, Crawford, Thompson & VerHagen
Tigers get: Benoit & Headley
Padres get: Hunter & Briceno
Tigers get: Price & Zobrist & re-sign Price for 7 years & $168M
Rays get: Knebel, Suarez, McCann, Lennerton, Adames & Kubitka
Re-sign Scherzer for 7 years & $168M
Re-sign Martinez for 5 years & $75M
Release Phil Coke
I love it! You even cut Phil Coke!
Tigers don't have the Quality of prospects to get all these guys. They don't have a good system. So they have no shot at Stanton or Price.
Not enough for price
21 Jul 2014 22:55:39
The yankees Get : tulo and Jorge de la Rosa
And Colorado Get :Gary sanchez, Jose ramirez, manny Ba uelos, tyler austin and mas n Williams
Still not enough.
Luis Servino needs to be included
Yankees don't have the prospects to get Tulo. The only way they get him is if he forces a trade to the Bronx. It would start with judge, sanchez, and severino
^Agreed. That offer would be blown away by another team. All mediocre prospects other than Sanchez. A team like BOS, STL, or NYM would double that.
21 Jul 2014 22:49:43
Tigers get: Benoit, Headly
Padres get: Verhagan, Travis, Schotts
Tigers get: Soria
Rangers get: Thompson, Adames
Tigers don't need Chase Headley
Eh. A lefty bat to supplement Castellanos wouldn't hurt though.
^ I agree
I thought Headley was right handed though.
Tigers need a lefty bat and Headley would be a perfect fit.
^^nevermind I thought he was right handed but he is a switch hitter.
21 Jul 2014 22:36:15
Red Sox gets Walker
Seattle gets Alex Wilson and Lake
Cubs gets Dustin ACkley
So the Cubs get hosed? Got it.
Who exactly are the Red Sox giving up to merit acquire Walker?
The Mariners are at a bigger disadvantage than the Cubs.
^The Mariners are getting hosed more than the cubs
21 Jul 2014 22:34:20
Red Sox gets Stanton
Marlins get Andy Dirks and AA Prospect from Both Teams
Tigers gets Allen Webster and Cash from Marlins
Do you know who Stanton is?
Unless this two AA prospects are Henry Owens and Blake Swihart this trade sucks.
Why would the tigers be in this trade?
21 Jul 2014 22:07:14
Phillies trade: Asche, Cliff Lee, Papelbon
Dodgers trade: Urias, Pederson, Seager, Lee
Phillies trade: Hamels, Revere
Redsox trade: Bradley Jr, Henry Owens, Sean Coyle
Both trades help both teams. Dodgers get tht extra pitching and 3B help to bring them the WS, and the sox get a still solid number 1/2, and a CF to replace Bradley Jr.
The first trade rids the Dodgers of their entire franchise for a 35-year-old and a reliever? Phillies would take that one in a heart beat.
Dodgers don't need Cody Asche. Espically because Juan Uribe is batting 300
Huge over pay for Cliff Lee
I'd rather keep Bradley. His bat is finally starting to come around and he is right up there with Lorenzo Cain for the "Best Defensive CF in the AL" title.
Also Papelbon will only waive his no-trade to a team that will make him their closer.
Phillies aren't trading Hamels
^Right now they aren't, but as the years go by and losing continues they will.
21 jul 2014 21:58:42
indians - redsox
sp jon lester
of daniel nava
sp trevor bauer
rp scott barnes
sp cody anderson (#3)
if jose ramirez (#7)
of carlos moncrief (#9)
1b jesus aguilar (#16)
why indians do it:
they need pitching help if they want to catch the tigers or even a wild card and getting lester who is in trade rumors and a former player under francona, why not trade him to his former managers team and so he can help the pitching staff and he would be the ace on the team with kluber, tomlin, mcallister and masterson behind him and they also get a 1b/of that can help them out since right now, they could use him
why the redsox do it:
they get rid of lester before he hits free agency and get a bundle for him, bauer would instantly be the replacement with barnes being a fill in for in this trade since he's from massachusetts, anderson is a top pitcher prospect for the indians and could be used to get lester along with bauer, ramirez is a good 2b/ss prospect who can help in the future, moncrief could be called up to help the redsox in the of which they need all the help they can get and aguilar is a 1b prospect is a power hitting 1b prospect who can ultimately replace ortiz as the dh/1b in the future with napoli being the other but he's a free agent in 2016
both teams get better with the indians getting immediate help while the redsox get future help with possible immediate help
How is this pitching help if Bauer leaves and Lester takes his place? This trade is a means of getting something/anything in place of watching Lester leave & become a Free Agent in two months.
This trade has nothing to do with helping the Indians and is otherwise transparent in purpose. PASS
21 Jul 2014 21:58:12
Rangers trade Alex Rios
Royals trade Kyle Zimmer and Jorge Bonifacio and mid level prospect
I think the royals can get rios without giving up zimmer
21 Jul 2014 20:02:39
Phillies trade C. Lee, M. Byrd, and A. Bastardo to the Cardinals for A. Craig, S. Miller, and Wong.
The Cards really don't need yet another corner outfielder.
Especially an old guy like Byrd. I'm fine with Craig. Everyone knows how good he can really be
21 Jul 2014 19:46:32
Yankees and Braves:
To Yanks = Aaron Harang RH P
Anthony Varvaro RH P
Cody Martin #8 prospect RH P
Kyle Kubitza #9 prospect 3B
To Braves = Mason Williams
David Hale can take Harang's rotation slot.
The Braves don't get enough in return.
Braves get a better OF prospect than
any in their system. Kubitza will probably never hit enough to be an impact player. Harang s a $400K rental. Varvaro is a journeyman RH
(from Staten Island). Martin is a 5th
starter prospect. Clarkin is a very young super LH starter prospect. Yanks get some immediate help, but
Braves win over the long haul.
21 Jul 2014 18:48:03
Mariners get Tulo and Brett Anderson
Rockies get Walker, Franklin, Smoak and Pike
That's not enough to get Price. I doubt its even close to enough to get Tulo.
21 Jul 2014 18:15:53
Seattle mariners receive:
Los Angeles dodgers receive:
Tampa bay rays receive:
How much of Kemp's salty will the Dodgers eat?
^Thats a really unfortunate typo.
21 Jul 2014 17:12:29
Phillies trade C. Lee, M. Byrd, and A. Bastardo to the Cardinals for A. Craig, S. Miller, and Wong.
There's no point in putting Allen Craig and Byrd in this trade
21 Jul 2014 16:47:52
New York Yankees receive:
Edwin Jackson (full contract)
Emilio Bonifacio (when healthy)
Chicago cubs receive:
Tyler Webb RHP
Bryan Mitchell RHP
The cubs do this to relieve more cap and there is a logjam with alcantara and now Bonifacio. Alcantara is the future so that makes Bonifacio expendable. Sorianos cap comes off the book also so they will have a ton of money.
The Yankees get a versatile Player who can help them at 2b or if someone gets hurt outfield. He gives them speed and a switch hitter at the top or bottom of the lineup. They get him at a discounted price bc of injury and Jackson's contract.
21 Jul 2014 16:30:48
Phillies send OF Marlon Byrd to Mariners for
OF Prospect Alex Guerrero (Related to Vlad) and LHP James Paxton
Are you sure the Guerrero is realated to Vlad? I thought this guy was from Cuba.
Is do that in a second if I were Ruben amaro jr
^^nevermind I was thinking of the Guerroro on the Dodgers.
21 Jul 2014 16:00:57
Rangers trade Joakim Soria
Tigers trade Jake Thompson and Steven Moya and 2 mid level prospects
And the Rangers win that trade.
21 Jul 2014 05:28:07
Braves get: Antonio Bastardo
Phillies get: David Hale
Maybe not. Intra-division.
21 Jul 2014 05:11:58
Dodgers get: Cliff Lee, C. Utley
Phillies get:D. Gordon, A. Either and a Pitching prospect
Depends. Is that pitching prospect Julio Urias?
I just don't think that would be enough for both.
No. Urias or Pedersen need to be part of a trade like this and a guy like Scavuzzo. Phils cover $10 mil
Utley, though aging, is still a gamer and would be a big boost for a playoff bound team. THEN you've got Cliff Lee and no Ethier. Prospects only!
Why would the Dodgers give up an up-and-coming 26-year-old second baseman in Gordon and a young prospect for two guys who are on their way out the door?
Because do you want to win the World Series NOW or not?
21 Jul 2014 03:31:45
The yankees Get:Troy tulo and Giancalos stanton
Colorado Get:Mas n Williams, manny Ba uelos, Bryan Mitchell, and j. r murphy
Miami marlins Get:gary sanchez, jose ramirez, tyler wade, nick turley and cito Culver.
I just don't see either happening.
Both teams are getting nothing for their best player
Clearly not a Yankees fan. *sarcasm
Is this true??
Transfer is very good that the Yankees acquire two players and nesecitan They release almost all their leaflet
^I have no idea of what you are trying to say.
21 Jul 2014 03:14:59
Cardinals get: Jon Lester
Red Sox get: Marco Gonzalez, James Ramsey
We could get more for Lester. While he has only half a year left, he's an ace.
^lester is more of a number 2 than an ace
^His 2. 59 FIP, 43% GB rate, 9. 33 K/9 and nearly Low-. 240s BAA beg to differ.
