Red Sox get Cole Hamels
Phillies get Allen Craig, Daniel Nava, Henry Owens, and Rafael Devers.

Red Sox get Tulo
Rockies get Yoan Moncada, and Xander Bogaerts

Red Sox get Grant Balfour off waivers

Haha. That Hamels offer would not get you Harang. Craig just cleared waivers - no one wants him. Nava is a career bench player. Owens and Devers is a good start, then add 2-3 from Barnes, Bradley, Coyle, Cecchini, and Margot.

Philadelphia Phillies Firesale

Red Sox get- Cole Hamels
Phillies get- Ryan Hanigan, Sean O'Sullivan, and Jerome Williams

Angels get- Ben Revere, Ryan Howard
Phillies get- Nick Tropeano, Drew Rucinski, Julio Garcia, and CJ Cron

Twins get- Chase Utley (move Dozier to SS, Santana to CF)
Phillies get- Mike Pelfrey, Miguel Sano, and cash

Rockies get- Cliff Lee, Jonathan Papelbon
Phillies get- Brandon Barnes, Charlie Culberson, Brooks Brown, Boone Logan, Rex Brothers, and PTBNL

So the only player the Phillies get in the Hamels trade is Hanigan. They already have O'Sullivan and Williams. Plus that really wouldn't be good a trade for the Phillies. Utley is not worth a top prospect like Sano anymore. Cliff Lee won't bring in any return like that, not while he's injured, even though paired with Papelbon.

Horrible. Sale is worth much more than those two on his own, add in Ramirez and some at least one other quality piece would have to be heading to CHW. Plus, it is inter-division, so this won't happen.

The return for Philly would be higher if they eat a good portion of Howard's contract.

But I don't know if the Angels have what Philly would want if they ate most of the contract.

Wright is done.his injury is what ultimately ended Mattingly's career.

Mets need to move forward with Flores as their 3B.
For noe Reynolds will need to be SS
Murphy to 2b.decision will Herrera replace him next season?

We all know mets need a bat and cubs need pitching so how bout this (i know this isn't likely now but probably in June or July)
Mets trade: Gee
Cubs trade: Baez

Other pieces may be needed but its a start
Makes sense though as the mets get a shortstop with major power without giving up one of their stud pitching prospects. And the Cubs get a servicable starter plus a rotation that looks like Lester, Arrieta, Hammel, and Gee looks good

Dodgers get Jon Niese and Matt Bowman

Mets get a much needed 2B/3B/LF since Wright is hurt, and Murphy/Cuddyer are struggling

Dodgers get a solid starting pitcher to supplement their injured rotation in Niese and minor league pitching depth in Bowman

It probably won't happen but here are my ideas on how the Yankees can rebuild because they have looked terrible lately:

Twins get: Mark Teixeira
Yankees get: Miguel Sano, Max Kepler, Casey Fien

Twins do it because they could use a full time DH (the Nunez/Escobar platoon won't cut it) and Tex would fit the bill.

Orioles get: Carlos Beltran
Yankees get: Tim Berry, Rey Navarro, Christian Walker

While trades within a division aren't common, both teams would benefit. O's would upgrade RF and Yankees get decent prospects in return.

Angels get: Brian McCann
Yankees get: Andrew Heaney, Grant Green, Chad Smith

Angels really haven't been getting much production from the Catcher position so far. McCann could give the Angels a spark.

Indians get: Jacoby Ellsbury
Yankees get: Tony Wolters, Kyle Crockett, Danny Salazar, Zach Walters, Tyler Holt

Bourn has not been hitting this season. Yes he steals a lot of bases, but Ellsbury (when he is healthy) could bring a positive influence to their clubhouse and upgrade CF. They could be a CF away from competing in the AL Central.


I know people won't like these trades but thoughts?

If Tex were 25 still that trade wouldn't be so bad, but he is decline

So are you on something? And again, why do you keep trying? Teixeira won't bring a top prospect like Sano in. Beltran won't bring much in. He certainly wouldn't be traded in the division. McCann won't bring in someone like Heaney. Ellsbury could bring in better.

Yankees27, if you think this group of aging, overpaid retreads such as Teixeira and Ellsbury will bring returns such as Danny Salazar, Miguel Sano and Andrew Heaney, then you need to wake up, because you're dreaming.

24 May 2015 23:49:20
Angels trade is AWFUL. Carlos Perez is the catcher of the future, McCann is not good anymore. Heaney is a future #2, Green is a potential 280 hitter, and Smith, well I don't care about

Teixeira to the Twins for those guys is like trading a whole batch of fresh, soft and chewy cookies from Grandma for moldy cheese. We need a DH, yes, but we are NOT going to sell half the farm trying to get one.

Brewers Firesale

MIL- Blake Swihart, Manuel Margot, Trey Ball and Teddy Stankiewicz
BOS- Jonathon Lucroy and Matt Garza

WHY) Boston has the ability to get one of the top Catchers in the game and a #2 starter in Garza. Catcher is the last piece to the Sox lineup and Garza would help a struggling staff. MIL picks up the top C prospect and a few other guys who will contribute soon.

MIL- Ketel Marte, Austin Wilson and Danny Hultzen
SEA- Carlos Gomez

WHY) Seattle is going for it. The possibility to get Gomez in that lineup would be a no-brainer. Slide Austin Jackson to LF, put Gomez in CF and Cruz in RF. MIL lands two very good bats and take a flyer on Hultzen who before injury was one of the top propsects in the game. he's worth a gamble.

MIL- C.J. Edwards, Billy McKinney and Dylan Cease
CHC- Ryan Braun

WHY) Division trades don't happen often especially with big names like Braun. However, the Cubs need help in LF and Braun could be another bat in that lineup. Coghlan has barely stayed above .200 and they need production there. MIL is able to pull two good prospects and a young pitcher in Cease.

MIL- Rafael Montero, Gabriel Ynoa and Gavin Cecchini
NYM- Jean Segura

WHY) the Mets desperately need a SS and Segura is young and an upgrade from what they have. MIL is able to get two starters that are close to ready and a future SS in Cecchini.

MIL- Clayton Blackburn and Aramis Garcia
SF- Aramis Ramirez

WHY) SF needs a 3B and doesn't want to give up much. Ramirez is retiring after the season and would provide an upgrade for them. He allows them to fill the hole this year without giving up too much. MIL gets two players to develop for a player who is retiring after the year.

MIL- Javier Betancourt and Endrys Briceno
DET- Adam Lind

WHY) Victor Martinez is struggling to stay healthy and his bat is missed. Lind could step into the 1B/DH role and provide a good bat to replace him. MIL got a bargain in Lind when they signed him and now they're benefiting even more by landing prospects for him.

MIL- Chris Anderson, Scott Schebler, Jacob Rhame and Justin Chigbogu
LAD- Kyle Loshe and Francisco Rodriguez

WHY) LA just lost Ryu to injury. Loshe could help fill the void in the rotation and they could also use the bullpen help. MIL picks up solid prospects to grow and add to their farm.



MIL would have one of the best systems in the game and would be able to start over. They could build around Kris Davis and Scooter Gennett.

Let me know what you think.

aj62088

Seriously? The Red Sox have refused to trade Swihart for Hamels. There would be no way they would trade him for Garza and Lucroy. Plus that package is an overpayment. No one is going to take on Ryan Braun. I can see the Mets trading for Segura, maybe for a different package though. I think the Dodgers are giving up to much for Loshe and Rodriguez.

BATMAN!

22 May 2015 00:39:32
1. I agree with Batman on the Lucroy trade. Besides, top level catchers are damn tough to find. mix in a ridiculously team-friendly contract, and the Brewers will keep him as a part of a rebuild.

2. Not even close enough for Gomez. Nowhere close.

3. IF the Brewers moved Braun within the division (they won't), it'll require a much more significant return than what you have the Cubs giving.

4. Segura is much like Lucroy. Young and has an incredibly team-friendly contract. He's not going anywhere.

5. Giants won't give up Blackburn, who is one of their better pitching prospects, for a guy who is retiring. There are better upgrades available.

6. Lind won't go to Detroit. The Tigers can find some DFA guy to pay a minimum salary to hit for V-Mart.

7. Lohse to the Dodgers isn't bad, but not at that price.

If Houston is series about contending they need to make a few moves.

HOU-Adrian Beltre
TEX- Colin Moran and Lance McCullers

HOU- Johnny Cueto
CIN- Domingo Santana, Vincent Velasquez and Tony Kemp

HOU- Gabriel Ynoa and Gavin Cecchini
NYM- Jed Lowrie

C- Jason Castro
1B- Evan Gattis
2B- Jose Altuve
3B- Adrian Beltre
SS- Carlos Correa
LF- Colby Rasmus
CF- Jake Marisnick
RF- George Springer
DH- Chris Carter

SP- Johnny Cueto
SP- Dallas Keuchel
SP- Colin McHugh
SP- Mark Appel
SP- Scott Feldman

The Astros are ready to compete and they're in position to make a serious run like the Royals did last year. However, they're going to need help at 3B and in the rotation. Enter Cueto and Beltre. Neither guy is locked up for a while so the Astros aren't tied to their contracts. Correa and Appel are ready to contribute and they need to be called up. Moving Lowrie allows them to bring up Correa and also puts a few prospects back into the farm. This would be the most effective way to make a run this year. Give me your thoughts.

aj62088

Astros can do better for Cueto, they have so many prospects. The Reds would certainly exploit that. Why would the Mets want Lowrie, he's out for a while.

BATMAN!

(3)

BATMAN More a deadline trade for the Mets and Astros. I agree on Cueto, but I can't see them giving up Appel or Correa and Santana is their 3rd best prospect so he goes.

aj62088

(2)
(1)

BATMAN I disagree.

1) Valbuena is batting .211. He has 10 HR, but we all know that isn't going to last. Beltre provides a vetern who has been to the postseason and upgrades defense. No chance HOU wouldn't want Beltre.

2) Andrus cannot bring back more. He is batting .229 so far and had a down year last year as well. LA is giving up two very good pitchers and a C with the ability to start in the future. As for where he would play in LA. Rollins has been terrible. They have a log jam at 3B, but eventually see Seager taking that job. Having Seager and Andrus on the left side would solidify their defense and allow them to kill the platoon.

3) Fielder may be able to bring back more I agree on that. My mistake on this one.

4) Choo would replace Markakis and is needed atop the Orioles lineup. With the $30 million going towards BAL it brings his Avg annual salary to $18. let's not forget this is a guy who was highly sought after 2 years ago.

5) Holland is hurt a lot I agree, but STL is not giving up much. If Holland can stay healthy they're stealing him and he would help fill the void of Weinwright (not comparing them).

6) Colby Lewis would bring experience for a staff who doesn't have much. The only starter with deep playoff experience is Clay B and he has been terrible. BOS has made it clear they won't give up kings ransom for a starter. Bringing in Lewis would help them in the postseason (if they get there).

Mets would be giving up too much for an injury prone SS. Also, Niese is not an asset and they wouldn't want him.

Texas Rangers Firesale

TEX- Domingo Santana and Lance McCullers
HOU- Adrian Beltre

TEX- Jose De Leon, Zach Lee and Kyle Farmer
LAD- Elvis Andrus ($20 million) and Yovanni Gallardo

TEX- Miguel Castro and Mitch Nay
TOR- Prince Fielder ($20 million)

TEX- Patrick Connaughton and Adrian Marin
BAL- Shin-Soo Choo ($30 million)

TEX- Jacob Wilson and Andrew Morales
STL- Derek Holland

TEX- Sam Travis
BOS- Colby Lewis

Call up Jorge Alfaro and Joey Gallo to fill Fielder and Beltre spots. Profar (when back from injury) slides back over to SS.

C- Jorge Alfaro
1B- Mitch Moreland
2B- Rougned Odor
3B- Joey Gallo
SS- Jurikson Profar
LF- Domingo Santana
CF- Leonys Martin
RF- Delino Deshields
DH- Josh Hamilton

SP- Yu Darvish
SP- Martin Perez
SP- Lance McCullers
SP- Zach Lee
SP- Nick Martinez


Texas sheds their large contracts while still fielding a respectable lineup. They load up their system with talent.The only reason Darvish is not being traded is because he is coming off surgery. I think he's a deadline deal next year once he proves healthy. PLEASE let me know what you think of these. If you disagree post some alternatives.

1. Houston doesn't need Beltre. Valbuena has been outstanding for them. and they don't need him at DH, Gattis has been great there as well.

2. Andrus is also not a need in LA. They have so many infielders as is. Besides, the Rangers could get more for Andrus.

3. Texas can get more for Fielder. like, A LOT more. Plus, I don't think Toronto could afford Fielder, even with $20 going their way.

4. Baltimore won't take on Choo's salary.

5. Why would St. Louis take on Holland's contract? The guy has pitched 38 innings in the last two seasons (and 37 were in '14).

6. Boston needs guys who can be a #1 pitcher, not just add to their staff that's already loaded with #3-4 starters.

Also, if that's the Rangers' day-to-day lineup, they won't win anytime soon. Profar may not ever pan out with his injury history. And you've got several lottery tickets with their prospects, you just don't know what he'll do.

1. If batting average is all you look at to see if a player is playing well, I refuse to talk baseball with you. Beltre has roughly $30M left on his contract into his age 37 season. That should leave any team interested with serious doubts about how long he can continue.

2. Andrus CAN and WILL bring more back if he is moved. He's struggling to start the year, but no team looks at only a couple months worth of production in determining if they want to make a trade. As for the logjam, they have Guerrero, Olivera, Seager. Andrus would make a few of them obsolete as he's younger and has more upside. Not to mention, it's not just Andrus coming to LA, but Gallardo as well.

4. The price for Choo is still 5/80 for the guy. I'm not sure that really excites the Orioles to be paying a guy that much into his age 37 season. Texas is going to have a hard time finding a new home for his salary.

5. There are dozens of catchers out there looking for a job who could probably give similar production without having to give up anything or pay stupid money for Holland.

6. The problem the Red Sox have right now isn't experience, it's that they don't have a go-to guy. Masterson, Miley, Porcello, Buchholz. not exactly a stellar rotation. If they are going to give up pieces and take on salary, they will give it up for a guy who is an improvement on what they have now. Lewis is the worst of those listed.

No way from Toronto. Hitting is not the problem in Toronto and getting rid of a potential stud pitcher who is only 20 for an aging one dimensional player is not going to happen

3 Team Trade
NYM-CHC-SF

I see a real possibility for a 3-team trade this year. All 3 of these teams are going for it and they all can benefit from one another.


NYM- SS) Starlin Castro

CHC- SP) Steven Matz, SP) Rafael Montero, C) Andrew Susac

SF- 3B) Daniel Murphy

For the Mets. they made it clear Syndergaard is not being traded. However, they're going to have to make a move to upgrade SS due to Wilmer Flores' inability to field a routine ground ball. Castro is controlled for a while and presents a major upgrade. Flores shifts over to 2B to replace Murphy.

For the Cubs. they need pitching and Matz is ready to contribute right away. he's a young lefty who would step right into the rotation. Montero is more of a bullpen guy who could start if needed. Susac would be ready to take over for Montero when his contract expires. This allows Russell to slide back to SS (natural position) and call up Baez to play 2b.

For the Giants. they get their 3b (Murphy's natural position) to fill their void. He will provide an upgrade to a lineup that badly needs it. Susac was being blocked by Posey anyway, but I think they would want to add some years to Murphy's contract since he's a FA at seasons end.

To me this trade works for all 3 teams. The Mets give up a top pitching prospect, a reliever and a solid vet for their SS. The Cubs trade Castro, slide Russell to his natural SS position and bring up Baez to play 2b while upgrading their pitching. And the Giants get their 3b that they need in Murphy and give up a young Catcher.

The Giants could just use any of Duffy, Arias, and McGehee through the year. even bring up Duvall, throw them in the #8 slot, and wait. No need to give up Susac for a guy who may or may not sign to a long-term deal.

Which trade do you think is crazy but could make sense?:

Astros trade: Correa, Appel
Rockies trade: Tulo

Giants trade: Aoki, Blanco, Casilla, PTBNL
Tigers trade: Miggy
(Put Belt in RF, Maxwell in LF)

Pirates trade: Mercer, Alvarez
Mariners trade: Seager
(Put J-Hay at 2nd)

Rays trade: Cobb, Archer
Red Sox trade: Breslow, Swihart, Barnes, Nava

These trades are terrible. Tulo isn't happening for that package. Miggy isn't getting traded ever. Also where will hunter pence play? Seager isn't getting traded especially for that crappy package. The Red Sox need pitching great let's trade for the guy who just got tommy john surgery. Brilliant

I'm a Giants fan, and as much as I would love for that to work, I know that never, in a million year, would it come remotely close. Sure, Casilla is a good pitcher, but other than that you have Blanco, who is a decent fourth outfielder, and Aoki, who is an OK starter, better as a bench option. That in exchange for the best hitter in the game? Never going to happen. And these other trades are horrible as well.

This is awful, the fact that you thought these were good is mind blowing. Rockies for what ever reason aren't trading tulo. Astros aren't trading their best prospects for a guy who isn't filling a need. All are laughable. Are you crazysull

1. The Astros aren't trading a young, controllable SS for an old, expensive SS.

2. As a Giants fan, I'm laughing at that trade. One, where does Pence go? Two, none of those pieces are remotely close for getting Miggy.

3. The Pirates trade is garbage. They won't get Seager.

4. Cobb is out for the year. No reason for Boston to make a move for him.

Scrap it all and try again, Smitty.

The Tigers will hang up laughing at that proposal for Cabrera. Cobb is out for the year with Tommy John surgery. And there isn't anyway an interdivision trade happens. Seager isn't getting trade from Seattle, certianly not after signing a long term extension.

We all know a trade for Cole Hamels is coming soon or at the deadline. Here are some possible trades for Hamels:

Cardinals get: Cole Hamels
Phillies get: Peter Bourjos, Tyler Lyons

Pirates get: Cole Hamels
Phillies get: Jordy Mercer, Radhames Liz, Rob Scahill

Cubs get: Cole Hamels
Phillies get: Tommy La Stella, Javier Baez, PTBNL

Red Sox get: Cole Hamels
Phillies get: Blake Swihart, Alexi Ogando, Matt Barnes, Daniel Nava, PTBNL

Terrible. Are you a Phillies fan? Because no Phillie fan would find these to be acceptable trades for Hamels.

No, I'm a Pirates fan. Since Kang was signed, Jordy has struggled because of the pressure for losing his SS role

Hector Olivera passed his physical and will officially begin his contract with LA. with a packed infield, would the Dodgers make a trade, perhaps?

With that, here's a few trade ideas, all involving Jimmy Rollins:

-Rollins to the Mets for Dillon Gee and a mid-level prospect

-Rollins to the Padres for Ian Kennedy

-Rollins to the Athletics for Scott Kazmir

Justification for each:

Mets could use a SS upgrade. I don't see them giving up marquee prospects for Tulowitzki or Castro. Gee and a prospect is more than enough for a 37-year-old, soon-to-be-free agent in Rollins.

The Padres could also use a SS upgrade over Amarista/Barmes. And as much as the Dodgers probably don't love Ian Kennedy, he provides a 1-year rental to help their pitching staff. McCarthy is done, Ryu isn't looking to come back anytime soon, and Anderson is a wild card when it comes to injuries.

And the Athletics are a fit. Rollins is from the Oakland area, and they could move Zobrist to the outfield, then move Semien to 2B. Kazmir being a FA would be a rental swap.

The only one that makes sense is the mets trade and I still don't think they would do that.

Probably could make sense with the Blue Jays need of an outfielder (well, sort of) and the Athletics needing an experienced and temporary replacement for Zobrist.

Blue Jays get: Craig Gentry
Athletics get: Ryan Goins

Might be too little, might be too much, might be horrible. It's all about opinions.

If the Athletics want an upgrade at 2B until Zobrist returns, there are tons of options out there that would cost them pennies on the dollar.

Oakland doesn't need to give up much more than a no-named minor leaguer at this point.

Zobrist is working his way back. If I'm not mistaken, he is starting a rehab assignment soon or has already.

Harang would offer the Pirates a boost to their rotation and would have a veteran presence.

Angels trade Erick Aybar to the Padres for Jose Rondon and Casey Kelly

Then, the Angels trade Jose Rondon, Casey Kelly, Andrew Heaney, Nick Tropeano, and Alex Yarbrough for Tulowitzki.

I've seem a lot of Tulo to Mets, Yankees, or Cards so I'm going to try something else.
PIT acquires: Troy Tulowitzki SS, cash
COL acquires: Jordy Mercer SS, Jameison Taillon SP, Alan Hanson SS/2B, Jose Tabata OF,
I think that's enough for someone who has played more than 100 games only once in the last 3+ years.

You have unrealistic expectations. The Tigers would NEVER trade Cabrera, and the Mets would Never trade Harvey. The Phillies aren't going to trade Hamels in the division. And the rest of the trades are laughable.
