Yankees make out like bandits and the Mariners just plain lose. It would take more than Phelps and a flipping PTBNL for those 2.
Just stop with the junk m's giving and not receiving trades
What kind of Yankee-loving, lop-sided trade is this? I've seen bad ones posted on here, but this one has to be a joke.
06 Mar 2014 15:56:01
No way the Cardinals would trade Adams for the junk they get in return
Indians are in no rush. Lindor needs more time. By waiting, Cleveland gets an extra year of Lindor and time to extend Cabrera's contract before trading him to the Mets for Flores and Syndergaard.
You lack the knowledge about those players to declare them junk. Dominic Smith was top 5 pick & 2-3 yrs away or else Mets would not make that deal. Smith comparison to Keith Hernandez offensively and defensively. With that being said Craig needs descent backup for now Davis fits that role. 2 yrs removed from 30 Hrs season himself. Nimmo & Cecchini are solid prospects 2-3 years away. 4 top 8 prospects in Mets minors is not junk. Mets ranked 13th overall prospects. They might have to throw in Rafael Montero. I say keep Adams if your in AL for DH but that not the case here.
Again with the Matt Adams proposal?
Syndergaard for Lindor you mean
I'm really tired of these Mets proposals. It seems like every other post is about the Mets. Its tiring, the Mets suck and will continue to suck.
05 Mar 2014 18:56:02
Why not throw in Bryan Mitchell!
Yankees would have to give up more. Phelps is not very good.
05 Mar 2014 15:51:11
Well Madson wouldn't make sense for them. Santana to me will hold out a long time. But he could end up there, just not for that much and probably at this point a one year deal. They could just wait and see who gets cut at the end of spring or find someone cheaper on the free agent market. They have also been watching David Phelps of the Yankees. As for the trade, not very balanced to me. Mets give up to much for very little in return. Tampa receives too much for what they are trading.
Where is all this magical money coming from to pay all these guys?
I don't know that this really helps any of the teams involved.
Tv Deal money and the Mariners have more money then people think. I Just tried to make it fair for all three teams involved. but what can you do. It's better then stanton or kemp rumors though
But they don't have money. Their GM announced that they had just about reached their spending limit. Since then they signed Rodney to a decent deal.
I like the trade from all 3 teams perspectives.
So the Mariners give up Franklin, Paxton, Pike, Taylor, and Marlette for a projected number 3 starter and a glove first CF'er? The Mariners would get totally shafted on this deal and receive endless criticism for pulling the trigger on this deal from fans. Please somebody try and persuade me to think this would be even sensible for the M's to do. Also, the M's do have money through their corporate ownership and those owners aren't inclined to spend unless they are intrigued to do do. Jack Z may have met his spending limit but to say they are out of money is ignorant.
Who will play SS for the Rays this year after the trade?
Hak Ju Lee.
Lee's not ready yet, he still needs a full year at Durham.
04 Mar 2014 21:59:13
Nope. Not happening.
Michael Cuddyer's value will be at its highest closer to the trade deadline when teams are looking for either a RH bat and/or OF help. The Rockies could get a better package than this then.
04 Mar 2014 18:15:49
I think some Major League talent should go to Toronto since they just lost their starting shortstop.
. great, another Bryan Mitchell.
I know this was suggested on Bleacher Report. But I really think the Yankees should stay away from Reyes. He's injury prone. Not to mention they don't need a leadoff hitter, they have Gardner and Ellsbury. When they go after a shortstop, it should be a young guy.
Mlb needs to put hard cap in place or luxury taxes like the NBA. double and triple times the cost of revenue sharing over 150 mil threshold
Well, they sorta do. If you go over 189 million a certain amount of times you pay 50% for every dollar your over. Even before that you still have to pay a certain percent.
04 Mar 2014 05:10:55
Makes sense for both teams.
The M's would be fools to trade potential impact position players for a reliever who has had one season with a sub 3. 00 ERA and have in house options better than Cecil.
I think he means player, as single
^ I know that. Franklin can net much more than a reliever and Ackley is to young to give up on because he was rushed to the majors.
Just think of the Johnson trade, but at a cheaper price. ^
03 Mar 2014 20:08:01
Cardinals don't need those guys.
Not to mention its to much for Adams.
To say any team doesn't want strengthen the minor league prospects is insane. but they have 3 players at the same position all solid. Tavares will play the outfield.
Longtimebaseballfan opinion matters as yankee fan your opinion always matter
Nimmo and Cecchini were over rated. Accept for Dominic Smith none of players are quality mlb players. You could only hope Smith could be as good as Adams. Ike and Flores shown weakness in their game. Adams shown consistency with batting over avg. 300 60 games and playoffs and power and he is 24 years.
To the post above addressing me - if you think I am a Yankees fan, you are so far off the mark it's delirious. Lifetime Red Sox fan, bro.
Although longtimebaseballfan irks me most of the time in his defense why was he saying he's a red sox fan something to "disagree" with?
03 Mar 2014 17:13:07
. could happen.
Arizona wants a major league ready catcher.
Not going to happen. Sorry buddy. The Yankees are trading their best prospect away for a borderline 3B.
03 Mar 2014 10:54:50
I'm not sure what your proposal is. You seem to think Seattle has an unlimited supply of money.
I'm not sure why you think Morrison is trade bait. He was just brought over. Smoak could be traded. And Seriously, who is going to want Jesus Montero, he's a bum. He was suspended for connections to steroids, and he doesn't seem to care about conditioning in the offseason. Also there is no indication Cuddyer is even available.
03 Mar 2014 10:53:01
Any chance Seattle might be interested in the likes of someone like Darin Ruf? Guy is gettting a raw deal in Philly in my opinion and could flourish in the AL West and cost next to nothing, while putting up some really productive numbers if he ever got a chance to play consistently. That, and Seattle does have a history of picking Rube's pocket. though a Little League coach could pull the wool over Rube's eyes.
What makes you think Cespedes is even available and for that matter if he is, why would the A's trade him in the division. The 3 team trade makes no sense. If it was just Seattle and New York, it would. I'm not sure why you think Seattle has all this money still laying around. But Morales and Santana won't happen. I think its funny that Cano is already moderately upset with little protection.
^As said he was with his mamotth contract.
02 Mar 2014 16:53:55
This has some merit, but Atlanta may not want the salary of Ed Jackson, and probably has no use for Barney.
If you make it Beachy, Uggla and
02 Mar 2014 16:48:29
I think we've established that the Marlins will not trade Stanton at this time.
Middlebrooks and Nava are quad-A players right now. Middlebrooks could play his way right out of the starting lineup.
The redsox r a good spot for Stanton, but it would b done in the offseason, and the sox won't give up doubront.
^ Because dempster look th e year off no 13. 25m for him
The money didn't matter to him, that's why The Red Sox put him on the restricted list or whatever list it was instead of the deal.
02 Mar 2014 12:11:46
To much for Weeks. Maybe a few years ago. But he isn't that player anymore, and Heathcott and Betances would be too much. For the Second traded, no one wants Blanton and no one wants Uggla. Also where would Aybar play? They have Simmons who they just locked up and have no need for a catcher. The thrid trade I think it would be a little more, maybe one more guy for Owings.
All three trade proposals have problems. At this point, Weeks should probably go for a PTBNL. The Angels-Braves deal does not need to include both starting middle infielders for LA (take out Aybar and perhaps. ). As for the third one, do you really think the D Backs will give up a top SS prospect for a bum?
Everyone wants Blanton. :)
Hey. All these trades suck.
As a brewers fan, I like the weeks trade, we get a lot more than he's worth
Everyone wants Blanton lol
02 Mar 2014 00:48:23
Sure. But Mariners lose this trade. Rays have a garbage batch of prospects if you look at them closely.
^ Like Guerrieri, Romero, Colome, Stanek, Snell, Garvin, Floro, And Ames
01 Mar 2014 23:42:08
Makes some sense. Could happen.
Definitely agree. The annual money is about right, but he won't sign for 2 years. probably 4 like garza and jimenez.
01 Mar 2014 18:51:30
Horrible trades for the teams trading with the Angels
Wow. Both of these are terrible.
. what? .
28 Feb 2014 22:08:51
Sanchez or De Paula won't be traded.
Well to clarify De Paula one day maybe traded, but I think Sanchez still will be their future catcher. I think McCann will either DH or be first baseman at the end of the contract.
28 Feb 2014 21:31:14
Oh, yeah, looks pretty good. until you think about the pitching staff. Then, it looks like last place.
AA should not be stubborn and sign Ervin santana, or sign Odrisamer Despaigne
Everybody is complaining about the pitching.
Well they shouldn't cave to his demands. A week ago the Yankees were supposedly the favorites and they didn't like his workout and passed. Also saw were scouts said he is more of a platoon or utility player. Do you really want to pay 25 mil a year for that?
I mean 25 mil over 5 years for that.
Part of the reason the Jays had one of the better bullpens in MLB was because the rotation was sh!tty. Even the bullpen flamed out near the end of the season.
^ that doesn't prove s***. they flammed out because of the number of innings they pitched. i'm pretty sure their bullpen was number 1 in innings pitched.
Yes it does. Usually when a bullpen flames out at the end of the year its because they all pitched more than they should have.
28 Feb 2014 20:12:22
Are you trying to be a comedian? Because this is funny.
Im a Yankees fan but this would be stupid for both teams. Yankees will not give up Nova AND Sanchez and it would take a lot more to get Tulo.
28 Feb 2014 16:40:20
That is a HUGE deal for a player that is unlikely to get more than one year.
28 Feb 2014 10:14:27
Of course there has been no dialogue between the Mets and Diamondbacks, but I fully expect talks between the Diamondback and New York to pick up throughout spring training. Just not the Mets, The Yankees, they have a plethora of catching that is major league ready and a need for a shortstop after this year.
28 Feb 2014 04:36:00
Who ever loses the SS competition for the D-backs will be traded. Didi has a leg up with his major league experience. He may win. So at the end of spring it may end up being Owings that gets traded.
Travis D'Arnuad more appealing Austin Romine. Yankees have to stick to its senior citizen right side of the infield 1 more yr 45 mil more lmao
^^ You mean left side of the infield? Plus, the Yankees are off the hook for A Rod's salary this year.
Well, I don't believe A-Rod will comeback or if he does, it won't be with the Yankees. Of course they will have to eat most of the salary. But next year the SS may be one Gregorious or Owings and third could very well be Eric Jagielo.
28 Feb 2014 04:10:26
Then are not going anywhere but last
Even with Batista in a trade for Trout, it wouldn't be enough. They don't have a great farm system since trading most of it way to the Marlins and Mets last offseason.
^ for old guys
Trout for those bums?
4th response, the Jays take that in a heartbeat!
Of course they would, but the Angels wouldn't/
Stop trying, No one the Blue Jays have would even entice the Angels to consider trading Trout.
In 3 years people are going to be talking about Trout's horrible, immovable contract. Anaheim is the perfect place for him.
Ok, I get it Trout is a stud. he's THE stud but really the offensive production of Bautista and EE alone is greater than Trout's. you just won't get those two in a deal and then the team's top 2 or 3 prospects. If it wasn't the jays nobody would offer these trades from their teams. that's just crazyyyy
28 Feb 2014 04:08:41
28 Feb 2014 02:30:51
Mets even with the potential moves are still no where close to contention.
^ They also have Oscar Tavares. Also, switch Murphy and d'Arnaud
Arnuad is a better contact hitter and want to keep it lefty righty lefty thru the order
27 Feb 2014 22:43:31
Mets best chance of 90 wins is getting 20 free ones
Chris young is much better than ichiro. your making it more complicated than it has to be, mets are a decent team if they can add a ss like drew or franklin.
Chris Young is better than Ichiro. He plays better defense at this point of his career and hits for power. Yes, he struggled last year but the potential is there for him to be at least an average outfielder.
Phillies aren't trading Lee to the Mets, especially for tht in return
You think the Phillies would even consider trading Lee with in the division? HA. Wilmer Flores is a bit much for Ichiro. At this point Morales would be lucky to get anything higher than a one year deal.
Montero - top 30 pitching prospects
27 Feb 2014 18:35:18
27 Feb 2014 10:13:08
The only thing on here I see happening is Hanrahan to the Yankees. Because they are keeping an eye on him. Everything else I haven't heard a thing about. I doubt Johan Santana Retires. So he's barely cracking 80 on the radar. He's at the early stages of returning. He needs to build arm strength. He's aiming for a June return.
Santana won't retire yet.
27 Feb 2014 05:00:54
Not Locke, maybe Ramierez and take Walker out. I've looked at trade possibilities between these two teams a lot. I think Tabata could be a great piece for the mariners, especially if he can play some CF as well. No need for Walker really, M's have infielders.
Luis Heredia, Gregory Polanco for Justin smoak, James paxton, Julio Morban
Yeah, you know, just trade Neil Walker to Seattle so he can learn from Cano for ten years.
Walker will be in Steeltown for a while. He's a local and the fans like him.
