Not sure how Vogelbach makes sense for CHW. Collins, Mercedes and Vaughn (even if they manipulate service time for 2 weeks) would be redundant. Not to mention Eloy Jimenez's outlook.

Gallo making sense for Arizona?

Seems like a lot for Wendle (who I actually really like as a player), but I may be higher on Tarnok and Vodnik than you and/ or most.

Signings look good.

I think it's more of a backup plan in the event they don't like their options. They have plenty of options, but Vogelbach would give them a fairly risk-free play. You don't have to worry about service time, he's minimal cost, and you can cut him when you need another spot.

I like Wendle a lot as well. But the Rays have an embarrassment of riches, and getting some pretty solid value for him would be a good idea to both save money and play the younger studs.

Brewers trade Yelich, Hader

Padres trade Myers, Morejon, Baez, Weathers, Ona, Marcano, Feole, Barley.

Believable0 Unbelievable6

25 Feb 2021 13:55:45
So, let's get this straight:

The Padres get Christian Yelich AND Josh Hader, and the Padres get to unload Wil Myers' contract, and give up a bunch of high variance prospects who don't have a bunch of value anymore, as well?

Why, exactly, would the Brewers even think about this offer?

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Feb 2021 13:58:26
A trade of this magnitude would require a package with either:

MacKenzie Gore and a few 45 FV prospects

OR

CJ Abrams + Luis Campusano AND a few 45 FV prospects.

Milwaukee has zero reason to dump Yelich for lesser assets.

Agree3 Disagree1

25 Feb 2021 17:08:55
Why do I feel I hear the same song and dance about needing to include gore, abrams, or campusano every single time and they haven’t been included to get guys like snell or darvish?

Agree0 Disagree4

26 Feb 2021 16:24:18
Umm, they gave up Luis Patino, a consensus top 20 prospect to get Blake Snell. So, yes, they did have to give up someeone great to land Blake Snell.

If it took a 60 FV prospect (Patino), a 50 FV prospect (Hunt) and a 45 FV prospect (Wilcox) AND a controllable MLB catcher to land Blake Snell, what do you think it would take to get Christian Yelich AND Josh Hader?

Suggesting a package of Abrams (60 FV), Campusano (55 FV) and a couple of 45 FV guys isn't trat ridiculous.

In fact, such a trade package is probably too light.

Guys, you aren't getting Luis Castillo for anything short of an elite, controllable player and probably a top 50 prospect as well.

Adding in Suarez as well? Yeah, Mets would need to include Francisco Alvarez AND Ronny Mauricio, just to begin the conversation.

Agree3 Disagree3

03 Feb 2021 14:11:01
At the beginning of the offseason I'd agree with you.
But so far the major trade didn't get packages like you are saying.
Lindor, Darvish, Snell, Arenado didn't get back top prospects
Teams who need to dump salary are taking lesser players.

Agree3 Disagree5

03 Feb 2021 16:50:23
Lindor is a rental.
Darvish is old and expensive.
Snell is on a 3-year deal that is moderately expensive.
Arenado is crazy expensive.

Castillo is still under team control for three seasons and the Reds have zero reason to move him.

And for what it’s worth, the Rays got a really good return on Snell.

Agree7 Disagree2

03 Feb 2021 17:28:14
Castillo isn't a salary dump, either.

Trading Castillo would represent an opportunity for the Reds to get more youth in their system and try to rebuild a core.

If they want to dump salary, they'll likely start with Sonny Gray, Suarez, or even Moustakas.

But trading Castillo for a lesser return doesn't make any sense.

The Castillo portion of this posting is Dead in the water. Start with BOTH Jasson AND Gleyber. Higashi is redundant. Deivi is a tiny little guy. Gil is nothing special. Perez and Vizcaino are too far away to matter. This is just a bad deal. A Reds' star for Yankee garbage. won't make it.

The Hader deal is pretty good.

Yadi will probably retire before moving to another team. READ: He'll resign with the Red Birds.

That Luis Castillo trade is a joke, right?

I don't think Boston makes that trade within their division, and I don't think you need to give Rosario a 2-year deal. He's nothing more than a DH.

I could see Kris Bryant making sense for the Jays, however.

But I could also see them getting in on Bauer.

Agree2 Disagree1

12 Jan 2021 14:59:09
Why would the Blue Jays, or any team, give Brad Hand 22M and a three-year commitment when they could have had him for less than 10 on a 1-year deal?

Agree2 Disagree1

12 Jan 2021 16:02:01
@natedog less money per, especially when you look at hendricks deal, the next best reliever will want more than a 1yr contract.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jan 2021 16:23:15
1 year deals at higher AAVs are always more preferential to teams than long-term deals at slightly less AAV.

I guess you could argue that it was too early to make that type of commitment with Brad Hand, and that things changed now. But I think there was something teams saw in Hand that probably made them not want to drop that kind of money.

Until I see that contract, I won't believe he's getting it.

Agree6 Disagree1

25 Jan 2021 03:33:47
Oh look, a 1-year deal for Brad Hand.

Mets



NYM- Kris Bryant & Kyle Hendricks
CHC- JD Davis, Ronny Mauricio, Matthew Allen & Mark Vientos


This gives the Mets the best lineup in baseball while also upgrading their defense. The Cubs shed more payroll, but restock the farm with multiple top prospects and an immediate replacement for Bryant.

Believable1 Unbelievable10

Here fair trade

Braves get
3B Kris Bryant
RP Craig Kimbrel


Cubs get

3B/Ss Johan Camargo
CF Ender Inciate
Prospects
RP Freddy Tarnok top 20
LP Phil pfister braves 22
Of Greyson jenista braves 23

The braves get Bryant who play 3b and they can play Riley who can play Lf for now , and insurance just in case lose Bryant next year , and and give Kimbrel back home where he belongs and give chance be place where he and family feel Comfortable . And the Cubs get young 3b to replace for Bryant , they get Enders who could use fresh start and off set some of the money and they get 3 young prospect for the their rebuild , that fare trade

Believable6 Unbelievable6

04 Jan 2021 14:26:10
Ahhh yes, a totally fair trade that give you a legitimately talented 3B for literally every player the Braves don't want/ need.

Totally fair. Wink.

Agree7 Disagree2

30 Dec 2020 18:00:30
Ok since the Cubs got very little of major player in the Darvish trade with the Padres here's an idea for a trip from the Braves and the Cubs . When tried to be fair to the Cubs

Braves get
3b Kris Bryant
Rp Craig Kimbtrel

Cubs get
SS/3b Johann camargo
Cf Ender Incaite
Prospects
Rp Freddy Tarnok brave 20 prospect
LP Phil Pliater Braves 22 prospect
Of Greyson Jenista brave 23 prospect

I'm think Thai still very fair trade for both teams. Brave get off set some of the contracts plus get Bryant. To play 3b for the year of can't sign them and can play Austin Riley In Left field for the year , keep for insurance next year play 3b just case Bryant walls . And Kimbrel l is still beloved in Braves country who know get back home where he belong might get back to old ways and he could maybe close next year for them
