That trade for Realmuto might be more laughable than anything bwright has suggested.

It's going to take a top 20 prospect to land Realmuto, who has turned himself into the best catcher in the majors.

Agree3 Disagree1

12 Oct 2018 19:48:18
Two top 100 prospects, and a young C with some pop. I disagree its "laughable" but it may take a little more. I think it would be centered around those two players and then Nido can become one to two more mid level prospects.

Agree1 Disagree3

12 Oct 2018 20:49:57
No, it's laughable.

For one, consider the fact the Mets and Marlins are in the same division. The Marlins aren't going to just let the Mets have him.

So consider that your return is already pathetically light for any team, and then add a premium for it being within the division.

Gimenez would need to be the second, or even third best player in that package. And the Mets don't have much else to offer.

Padres Offseason

SP Dallas Kuechel 5 years $125 million
3B Eduardo Escobar 4 years $52 million
SP Lance Lynn 4 years $52 million

C- Francisco Mejia
1B- Eric Hosmer
2B- Luis Urias
3B- Eduardo Escobar
SS- Fernando Tatis Jr
LF- Will Myers
CF- Hunter Renfroe
RF- Franmil Reyes

SP- Dallas Kuechel
SP- Lance Lynn
SP- Joey Lucchesi
SP- Robbie Erlin
SP- Logan Allen

The Padres have shown the ability to spend at the right times. They have a very good farm with guys who are ready now and just signed Hosmer to a long deal last year. I think they're going to attempt to make a run at some big names this year.

These moves don't improve them to much more than a 78-win team, by even the most generous of projections.

I can't imagine the Padres spending almost a quarter-billion on moving up one spot in the standings.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Oct 2018 19:51:05
I agree next year they would not win more than 80, but the point of the moves are for the next 2-4 years. Mejia, Urias, Tatis, Renfroe, and Gore (still a year away) all have All-star potential. Mix that in with Hosmer, Myers and Kuechel and you have a very good team for 2-4 years.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Oct 2018 20:52:13
Keuchel is going to be 31 next season.
Escobar 30.
Lynn 32. Not to mention, Lance Lynn is awful and won't make that kind of money again.

The Padres don't need aging players on large contracts. Their core isn't even developed. Once that core develops and they know where they stand, then you add in those type of players.

They are 2-3 years from competing yet.

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Oct 2018 13:36:44
NYM: Jacoby Ellsbury and cash.

The Yankees would have to eat most of the contract, but if they ate all but $5mil-ish a year it would still be better than eating the contract and cutting him to open a roster spot for the kids.

The Yankees OF is a glut now, and they should want to free up even 5 mil a year. The Mets need someone to bat at the top of the lineup, and they need a real CF. They have Lagares coming back and could platoon the two a bit. This would all depend on the health of Jacoby (of course. for him), but he could fit exactly what they need if he can stay on the field. If they can take a crack at it on the cheap, it would be not only a possible fit, but also a very "Mets" move.

The Mets would hang up the phone so fast on that deGrom trade. Literally none of those players are that good.

The league has proven they don't want Clint Frazier.
Bird can't stay healthy.
Tyler Wade straight up sucks. (He had a wRC+ of 29. Meaning, he was 71 percent worse than the AVERAGE hitter in baseball) .
Chance Adams just came off his worst season yet, with a 4.78 ERA in AAA. He has gotten worse at every stop.

I don't think you could get a #3 starter for that package, let alone the Cy Young winner.

Agree3 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 18:07:28
And I didn't even see the Goldschmidt trade.

Yeah, let's just ignore this all around. What a freaking joke.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Oct 2018 13:36:13
Yank---eees fans are so delusional in their trade proposals. they really must believe that all other GM's in baseball do nothing but wait of the call to help the Yank---eees. They are referred to as the 'smartest fans in baseball'---nothing to indicate that here!

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Oct 2018 13:54:19
why do you do this to yourself bwright? its terrible as usual, none of this is likely. The Goldschmidt trade makes no sense for the D-backs, they are still a good team, no reason for them to trade him. Voit and Bird will have a year to prove themselves: Is Voit a half year wonder, and can Bird stay healthy and be consistant. If not Jose Abreu is free agent after 2019. The Degrom trade won't happen, if it did it would have been at the deadline, the Mets are probably going to try to rebound next year and need everyone. I don't see them signing Harper.
Now I disagree with several things thestatbook said. Plenty of teams wanted Frazier last offseason, but he had injuries most of the year, so not many people want damaged goods. For Chance Adams, he got worse at every level? It was his first full season in Triple A and yeah he ERA over 4, he will be just fine.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Oct 2018 20:40:40
Okay, let me rephrase:

No teams were willing to give up a #1 or #2 pitcher for Frazier, let alone Frazer + Adams.

Adams has almost every stat that matters get worse in his first full season at AAA. This isn't unusual or unique, but it's also alarming. Because most of his value was tied up in how dominant he was in the minors, particularly his 1.72 ERA in 100+ innings at AA.

His performance after a full season at AAA is extremely alarming, and many scouts and pundits online have written ad nauseam about it.

Also, read up on scouts' view of Frazier. Most think he's a total bust. There's a few "unnamed" ones (who we all know exist in the Yankees system) who think he's fine. Most folks have already moved on from him.

Moral of the story: no one is considering that package for an ace.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Oct 2018 04:36:09
I did not disagree with you on the package, because its not enough. I was disagreeing with your assessment of the two. Perhaps Adams has a bounce back season or he doesn't, perhaps Frazier is a bust or he is going to recover from this concussion symptoms he had most of this year and do fine.
Also Bwright your a fool to think Sunny Gray and Jacoby Ellsbury will be on the team next year.

Agree0 Disagree1

13 Oct 2018 13:36:55
LOL at the DeGrom trade. With the D-Backs rebuilding and Goldy only on a 1 year deal, they likely consider that trade for him.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Oct 2018 21:34:30
The funny thing about Adams is there's nothing to pinpoint why he got so bad. No drop in velocity. No major injury. He just got worse. And he finally caught up to his xFIP. Maybe he gets better, but all the signs say the better bet is he's not that great.

And my assessment on Frazier might not portray his talent, but again, most scouts have moved on. The Yankees reportedly couldn't even move Frazier for average starters. No one wanted him.

Again, none of this says they won't ever be good, but they aren't guys who can lead a package for a legit ace, let alone a #2 pitcher.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Oct 2018 05:27:01
I do agree with you they probably won't bring an ace or a 2, maybe a year or two ago they would have. We will have to wait and see what happens in the offseason and next season with these 2.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yankees-Jays trade

Yankees: tulowitzki
Jays: ellsbury

Yankees need playing time for all their good outfielders. Ellsbury takes up space

Jays need leadership but have a ton of infield depth. Basically a salary swap.

11 Oct 2018 18:02:26
That'd be a hard pass from Arizona.

Peralta still has 2 years of arbitration. He won't cost his team more than about 6-7 mil this winter, and is coming off a monster season (30 HR, 130 wRC+, 3.8 WAR)

White Sox will need to pony up a lot more than Rutherford.

12 Oct 2018 13:55:07
To much for Peralta.

Maybe this was light, but I don't think we're talking "a lot more" than Rutherford and Lambert.

The DeGrom trade is unlikely. Mets won't deal him to the Yankees ever. Romine is still under team control for 2 more years. Robertson will likely not be back, and he will make more than 8 million a year. I don't see them signing both Harper and Machado. Its one or the other. Harper signing a one year deal is not likely, and if he does it would be with the Nationals. its also interesting that you have faith in Greg Bird and Sonny Gray. Gray will not be on the team next year, he will likely be traded.

Agree3 Disagree0

06 Sep 2018 22:42:55
Are you joking with the Harper deal?

This can't be serious.

Agree7 Disagree0

08 Sep 2018 19:51:35
Also, depending on what deGrom gets during arbitration, you're suggesting the Yankees add 100M in payroll next season?

This is why literally no one takes Yankee fans seriously.

One can't disagree with Betts but it would be interesting to see where the Bosox would be without JD Martinez.

2nd in BA
1st in hits
1st in HR
1st in RBI

Can you think of any prior player with those rankings not to win MVP.

But yes Betts will win it.

Also, I think Scherzer deserves it.
