Just wondering if this might work.

Braves trade Markakis and $7.5 million, basically remaining salary for this year.

Royals trade OF prospect Seuly Matias.

Bleacher Report. Very Original.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 22:55:04
Texas has been known for wanting a kings ransoms for Gallo. Throw in Louis Ortiz and it even goes up.

Agree2 Disagree0

24 May 2016 23:09:45
Not enough to NY.

I think Milwaukee hangs up laughing.

Agree2 Disagree2

24 May 2016 23:09:30
This is horrible for a rebuild.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 May 2016 00:44:50
so a great fielder, not so great batter, a washed up knuckleballer and a catcher who's only reason for being in the league is to catch the washed up knuckleballer.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 May 2016 01:19:54
They already have Martin buddy.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 May 2016 02:16:39
Brewers decline because this is an awful package for Lucory.

Bluejays decline because a catcher isn't a need and is not likely they trade Pillar because if their current outfielder situation and Bautista is a UFA.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 21:44:44
I'm not getting to be a huge A's fan but they are not doing well and they just lost Sonny Gray to the DL. Here's what I think they should do if they are still well out of the playoff race come the deadline:

Trade #1:

Rays Get: Billy Butler

A's Get: Brent Honeywell, Mikie Mahtook, Jacob Faria

Trade #2

Diamondbacks Get: Coco Crisp

A's Get: Brandon Drury

Trade #3

Rangers Get: Ryan Madson

A's Get: Dillon Tate, Andrew Faulkner, Matt Bush

Trade #4

White Sox Get: Rich Hill

A's Get: Chris Beck, Spencer Adams, Luis Martinez, Matt Davidson.

Believable1 Unbelievable2

24 May 2016 22:45:07
Trade one is way to much for Butler. The third trade is not likely to happen because A) the A's and Rangers are in the same division and interdivision trades are rare, and B) its not a good trade. The last trade is awful.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 May 2016 23:00:13
Billy Butler has as much trade value as a flaming bag of dog turds, just so you know. Trade 2, coco crisp is not good, and the dbacks would not give up a future piece in drury for an injury prone, aging outfielder. Trade 3, how much value do you think Ryan Madson has? Good grief, these are all TERRIBLE.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 May 2016 23:24:08
Honestly i think that all these trades just favor the A's.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 May 2016 21:16:54
NYM acquires: 1B James Loney
SD acquires: RP Beck Wheeler (AA)

Believable3 Unbelievable1

24 May 2016 23:00:58
Hmm. I guess, good replacement for Duda. Good OBP skills, and a solid glove.

Agree2 Disagree1

24 May 2016 23:10:46
What do they do with Loney when Duda comes back?

Agree1 Disagree0

25 May 2016 00:53:31
Depends on how loney is performing.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 May 2016 18:18:12

Sox Get: Rich Hill

A's Get: Chris Beck, Tyler Janish.

Believable2 Unbelievable2

24 May 2016 18:49:56
With the way Hill is pitching it may take more than that or better quality.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 17:54:46
Mets-Phillies deal:

Mets get: Darren Ruf

Phillies get: PTBNL or low level prospect.

Mets get a fill in option at 1st while Duda is out and who can slide into the corner outfield spots if needed, and once Duda gets back he can be moved to the bench or sent down.

The Phillies continue to rebuild and add prospects, and Ruf has no real spot on their roster anymore, and when he was given a shot at it earlier this season he didn't capitalize on it so he could use a change to get him going again.

What do you guys think?

Believable1 Unbelievable3

24 May 2016 16:10:03
Orioles get:Jacob DeGrom

Mets Get:Pedro Alvarez, Chris Lee, and Mychal Givens.

Believable0 Unbelievable4

24 May 2016 16:26:13
This is Stupid. Mets would never give up DeGrom.

Agree2 Disagree0

24 May 2016 17:01:46
I swear, this is the first time I've read a post on here that made me actually laugh out loud.

Agree2 Disagree0

24 May 2016 17:40:23
Why on earth would the contending Mets move Degrom?

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 17:55:04
Not nearly enough.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 18:50:29
Why would the Mets trade DeGrom for that garbage?

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 21:15:59
The Orioles farm system is so bad, they could offer every minor league player to NYM and they would still decline.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 23:02:13
Oh my. When Pedro Alvarez is headlining a deal for Jacob degrom, I know I've seen it all.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 15:51:09

A's Get: Jon Edwards (#30 Prospect According to MLB. com), Alex Dickerson (#22), Nick Torres (#17)

SD Gets: Rich Hill

Although Hill has been great, the A's are not going to make the playoffs now that Gray is on he DL. They may as well rebuild.


Believable0 Unbelievable4

24 May 2016 17:02:20
Ok. But why the hell would the Padres make that move? They suck too.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 14:27:05
Just a random thought,

Braves trade: SP Julio Teheran, OF Nick Markakis

Rangers Trade: Joey Gallo, Josh Hamilton

Seems like an idea since the Braves are willing to eat Humongous salaries Josh Hamilton just isn't living up to his contract and is now hurt again. The braves might also squeeze a draft pick out of this one.

Believable0 Unbelievable5

24 May 2016 15:02:08
Nobody wants the cocaine cowboy, if he plays next season I'll call that a miracle.

Agree2 Disagree0

24 May 2016 15:02:50
The angels are paying for Hamilton, not the Rangers, sadly.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 15:04:07
This is so horrible. Who in their right mind would want Josh Hamilton? More would be need for Atlanta.

Agree1 Disagree1

24 May 2016 23:11:44
Absolutely horrible. Totally not going to:

A: Happen
B: Help a rebuild.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 23:14:24
Well if you read what I said they don't actually need to play him the braces have stated that they are willing to eat bad contracts such as josh hamiltons to receive draft picks.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 May 2016 03:25:43
So you're telling me that receiving a very powerful-hitting prospect and a draft pick won't help a rebuild?

Agree0 Disagree0

25 May 2016 04:48:12
Ok, gbetts you do know the only draft picks that are tradeable are the competitive balance picks right. And yes the Braves are willing to take on bad contracts to hopefully get a teams competitive balance pick. However the Rangers do not have one. So the Braves will not be able to squeeze a draft pick out of this.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 07:15:15
Angels get: Corey Dickerson, Alex Colome

Rays get: Kole Calhoun, Joe Smith, Matt Shoemaker

(Angels need more outfield power, better bullpen,
Rays need better rotation, a good setup man, and another talented young starter. )

Don't judge me. This idea was completely random.

Believable1 Unbelievable8

24 May 2016 11:54:08
They just traded Mckgee to get Dickerson who they really needed so I doubt they move him so soon.

Agree3 Disagree0

24 May 2016 12:11:56
Angels are not getting enough.

Agree1 Disagree3

24 May 2016 07:08:59
ATL, MIA, SEA trade (similar to what I proposed before)

ATL gets:
Tyler Kolek
Drew Jackson
D. J Peterson

SEA gets:
Marcell Ozuna
J. Hursh
A. Dean

MIA gets:
Arodyz Vizcaino
James Paxton
Seth Smith (MIA pays Smith's salary)
T. Zych.

Believable0 Unbelievable8

24 May 2016 07:16:00
Ozuna isn't going anywhere anymore.

Agree4 Disagree0

24 May 2016 12:12:44
Why would the Braves give up Vizcaino?

Agree3 Disagree1

24 May 2016 13:14:55
Because holding onto a decent reliever when you're this bad.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 15:05:38
Whats the point of this. Miami seems to get the short end of the stick. Why would they need or want to trade Ozuna? Kolek is out for the year with TJ surgery. This overall was not well thought out.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 07:06:49
Rays get Kole Calhoun, Matt Shoemaker

Angels get Matt Moore

(Rays need outfield with kiermaier gone for 3 months and Angels need better rotation depth)

Note: This was completely a random idea so don't judge me.

Believable2 Unbelievable6

24 May 2016 07:41:26
Rays need to give up a lot more than just Matt Moore.

Agree3 Disagree1

24 May 2016 07:52:51
Matt Moore is awful.

Agree3 Disagree1

24 May 2016 12:13:03
Not enough for LA.

Agree2 Disagree0

24 May 2016 13:42:26
Matt Moore might not even get Shoemaker himself so what makes you think you could get an All star caliber player as well, this is even worse than my ideas.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 15:05:58
The Rays would be foolish to accept that for Matt Moore.

Agree1 Disagree1

22 May 2016 07:38:07
Andrew Miller for kyle schwaber.

22 May 2016 13:47:57
Yankees fans only dream of that.

Kinda hard to trade a guy who's out for 10-12 more months/.

Agree9 Disagree0

22 May 2016 14:58:59
I don't think the Cubs or Yankees do this.

Agree4 Disagree4

21 May 2016 23:40:57
Yankees Trade Deadline Moves if they become Sellers

Trade #1
Astros get Mark Texeira and Aroldis Chapman (Texas is where Texeira is from so it might be the one place he would wave his no trade clause to. )

Yankees get Lance McCullers

Trade #2
Rangers get Brian McCann, Jacob Lindgren, and Ian Clarkin

Yankees get Joey Gallo (They just extended Beltre and their outfield is locked up with Choo, Hamilton, and DeShields. 1st Base is locked up with Prince. Gallo has nowhere to go anyway and they need a Catcher. )

Trade #3
Dodgers get Andrew Miller

Yankees get Jose De Leon and Trayce Thompson

Trade #4
Angels get Chase Headley

Yankees get Matt Shoemaker

Trade #5
Mariners get Brett Gardner

Yankees get James Paxton

Trade #6
Royals get Carlos Beltran

Yankees get Paulo Orlando.

Believable2 Unbelievable17

22 May 2016 01:37:36
Mariners do not need Brett Gardner.

Agree4 Disagree3

22 May 2016 04:07:13
Teixeira is from Maryland, went to school in Georgia, and is from Connecticut. I can't find anywhere that says he's "from Texas".

Agree6 Disagree1

22 May 2016 05:25:51
If they become sellers why would they trade prospects away? Texiera is not from Texas, he did begin his career there though.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 May 2016 15:44:00
My bad Texeira has a home in Texas.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2016 15:45:48
Also Batman, what prospects are they trading other than Clarkin and Lindgren? I only included them because I didn't think Texas would do Gallo for McCann straight up.

Agree1 Disagree2

22 May 2016 17:13:52
No chance at trade #6. Royals would probably not take Beltran. Also, trade #3 is not happening. the Halos don't want a struggling 3B in Headley when they have Yunel Escobar.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 15:07:19
OK bwright, tell me any time when an established star was traded with prospects for a prospect? I can't think of any. Its usually an established star traded for multiple prospects.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 19:52:47
Batman, then do you think the Rangers would give up Gallo straight up for McCann?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 22:42:55
No, there clearly would be other parts, but the Yankees giving up prospects and an established star for a prospect ain't going to happen.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 May 2016 21:19:50
PIT acquires: Fernando Abad RP
MIN acquires: Austin Coley SP (A+)

22 May 2016 00:21:08
I don't understand what happened to him. Last year he was an integral part of the middle relief.

Agree3 Disagree2

22 May 2016 00:35:58
Why would Minnesota do this? Trade a valuable reliever for a guy who is not even a tip 30 prospect for Pittsburgh, according to mlb.

Agree1 Disagree1

22 May 2016 01:37:00
If Minesota is not competitive at the deadline, then what's the point of having a lockdown reliever when you lose majority of your games?

Agree0 Disagree1

22 May 2016 04:56:41
Offer something better than your 35th odd something prospect who is already 23 and only at the high A level.

Agree2 Disagree0

22 May 2016 19:01:34
Stop ranking prospects on what number they are within teams. Misleading.

Agree2 Disagree1

23 May 2016 17:53:20
Then how do you propose we rank prospects?

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2016 23:46:20
One teams #1 prospect could be equivalent to another teams #5. For example, the Angels and the Red Sox.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 May 2016 01:34:29
And how are you going to be objective for 30 MLB farm systems?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 02:25:07
By that standards the Angels #1 would be like a #15 in a real system.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2016 11:24:29
Says who? You?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 13:17:34
Prospect rankings are mostly arbitrary. The Cardinals and Giants routinely find guys from deep in their farms to plug into the every day lineup.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2016 15:10:01
Most of the rankings don't really mean a thing. Like said above comparing the the Red Sox number prospect to the Angels number one prospect, they aren't on the same level. If the Angels top prospect was dealt to Boston he would probably be lower than number 5. You can't equate each teams rankings. 30 teams times 30 players each, at total of 900 overall players.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2016 21:02:45
Phillies Trade:
Jake Thompson, Mark Appel, Cornelius Randolph, Roman Quinn, Andrew Knapp, Ricardo Pinto, Darin Ruff

Angles Trade:
Mike Trout.

Angels hang up nearly having a heart attack from laughing so hard. And that's an understatement.

21 may 2016 21:34:53
stop with the trout trades they are not trading him this year.

Agree4 Disagree0

22 May 2016 04:28:24
As a Phillies fan I'd love to have Trout but try adding Franco, Quinn,Nola, whoever they get in this draft and Crawford as a start

Agree5 Disagree0

22 May 2016 05:26:29
This looks like something Ruben Amaro would throw together.
