Trade I see making sense in the offseason
A's trade: Khris Davis
Giants trade: Andrew Suarez, Aramis Garcia, Austin Slater

I can't see the Athletics trading anyone to the Giants, let alone a cheap, controllable outfielder.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Aug 2017 11:35:38
Totally see where you're coming from but Davis isn't going to help the A's compete any time soon. Davis is 29 I believe and not a whole lot of teams have a need for a power hitter with low average and Giants biggest holes are a power hitter and a left fielder Davis fills both.

Agree0 Disagree1

16 Aug 2017 15:28:42
The Giants also rank dead last in outfield defense. The last thing they need is to trade for a guy who ranks among the 5 worst defensive outfielders in baseball.

I kinda wanna look at some off-season trades so and I know some may seem unlikely.

Braves trade: Luiz Gohara, Joey Wentz, Austin Riley
Marlins trade: Dan Straily

O's trade: Britton
Dodgers trade: Yadier Alvarez, Yusniel Diaz, Gavin Lux

Padres trade: Brad Hand
Astros trade: JB Bukauskas, David Paulino, Jorge Alcala

O's trade: Manny Machado
Braves trade: Ozzie Albies, Mike Soroka, Ian Anderson, Travis Demeritte, Touki Toussaint

First trade Marlins are likely going to trade Straily and Braves are looking for controllable starters I also feel the Braves will make the jump the contender status next year

Second trade: I believe O's will realize they can't compete and sell their 2 biggest pieces I believe the Astros will want to keep their top prospects and will settle, Dodgers get probably the best righty lefty duo in the majors.

Third trade: Like I said I believe the Astros will settle and the Padres will have to too, they still get a top 100 prospect along with 2 interesting arms.

Last trade: to sum up what I've said O's rebuild Braves contend Braves I think will have a great chance to bring machado back

Believable3 Unbelievable4

16 Aug 2017 15:33:17
Straily trade: not anywhere close to enough. Straily still has 3-4 years of control as a SP and is very good. It'll take a lot more to bring him to any team.

Britton trade: too much from the Dodgers' perspective. They won't trade their top farm guys for a luxury, which Britton is, thanks to Jansen.

Hand trade: not enough. Padres want to be blown away for him. This won't do it.

Machado: too much. Machado's value has tanked, while he'll still pull a strong trade, it won't be this much.

Yankees Future

2017 Offseason

NYY- Kyle Schwarber
CHC- Dellen Betances

This trade makes too much sense for me. Schwarber needs to be a DH and Yankee stadium is perfect for his LH power. Betances is in the final year of his contract (2018) and will command more money than the Yankees will be willing to spend on another RP.

NYY- Jacob deGrom
NYM- Starlin Castro, Estavan Florial, Miguel Andjuar, Dillon Tate

The Mets are starting to look like a team destine to rebuild. deGrom will be a FA following the 2019 season and would net a great return for the Mets. The Yankees have a deep farm and could use a top starter that's under control for the 18 and 19 seasons.

NYY- Tyrell Jenkins
SD- Jacoby Ellsbury ($31 million -50% of contract remaining)

The Yankees have to do what they can to get out of the Ellsbury contract. The Padres have very few players locked in long term and could afford the $10 million a year for Ellsbury over the next 3 years. It would make sense for both teams to consider.

2018 moves
LF Bryce Harper 10 years $420 million
3B Manny Machado 10 years $385 million

The Yankees have enough young players to allow them to afford Harper and Machado while the young guys (Judge, Sanchez, Frazier, Torres, Adams, Severino, Montgomery) are still under team control. They will be able to field the best team in the league for quite a run.

2019 Roster

C- Gary Sanchez
1B- Greg Bird
2B- Gleyber Torres
3B- Manny Machado
SS- Didi Gregorius
LF- Bryce Harper
CF- Clint Frazier
RF- Aaron Judge
DH- Kyle Schwarber

SP- Jacob deGrom
SP- Sonny Gray
SP- Luis Severino
SP- Jordan Montgomery
SP- Chance Adams

SU- Tommy Kanhle
CL- Aroldis Chapman

This is all obviously hypothetical, but I honestly feel that the Yankees will do something along these lines to ensure they're putting out the best team possible while their young core is under control. This team would easily be the top team in the league with players locked up for another few years. I think the Yankees will get back to spending and being the top team in the MLB for the foreseeable future.

Seriously, these are terrible. The Mets aren't going to hand over deGrom for that cheap. It's going to cost the Yankees a massive premium.

Agree5 Disagree2

10 Aug 2017 00:04:49
The Yanks won't get deGrom for that package - it would take lots more. It would take more than a reliever to get Schwarber. As for Harper and Machado, the Yanks could get one, but won't get both.

Agree2 Disagree1

10 Aug 2017 03:41:40
Yeah, I agree with thestatbook, those trades all seem to favor the Yanks, especially the degrom one. And I don't see any team, even the yankees, shelling out 800 mil in one offseason for two players.

Agree2 Disagree2

10 Aug 2017 05:09:14
No one wants ellsbury I think that's the worst trade on here because Jenkins isn't awful, believe he was the other player involved in the heyward and Miller deal and plus all these other deals the opposing team to the yanks get screwed.

Two Wild Card Contenders Help Each Other Out

Mariners get Brett Gardner

Yankees get Felix Hernandez

The Mariners get a much better option in CF and a lead off hitter with pop in Gardner who could also provide veteran leadership while cutting salary in half and for one less year.

The Yankees get a veteran starter who knows how to pitch for their postseason run once he returns from the DL and would be a nice replacement for Sabathia next year as an innings eater. They have too many outfielders as it is and Ellsbury's contract is unmovable so Gardner is the odd man out. They can afford to take on his contract with A-Rod, Sabathia, and possibly Tanaka's money coming off the books after this year.

Who says no?

Believable0 Unbelievable7

09 Aug 2017 17:15:02
Felix Hernandez is out the next 3-4 weeks. this does nothing to help the Yankees. Once again bwright not well thought out.

Agree2 Disagree1

09 Aug 2017 17:51:32
I know he's out 3-4 weeks. I said when he gets back and also next year.

Regardless, do you think the value is fair for both teams?

Agree0 Disagree1

09 Aug 2017 18:14:30
No not all. Felix isn't the same pitcher he used to be. The Yankees are getting younger and he no longer fits them. Next year they have Gray, Severino, and Montgomery. I don't think Tanaka opts out after this horrible year he is having. I think they sign someone to bridge them to when Chance Adams is ready.

Agree2 Disagree1

09 Aug 2017 18:30:29
Fair enough. I appreciate the constructive criticism.

That Yelich trade HAS to be a joke, right?

Agree8 Disagree4

08 Aug 2017 17:36:48
AJ are not paying attention to anything? Yankees aren't going to need Yelich, they have Judge, Gardner, Hicks, Frazier, and Ellsbury (who will probably not be there next year) . Not to mention a plethora of outfielders in the minors.

Agree5 Disagree0

08 Aug 2017 18:51:54
^included in said plethora is Estevan Florial. With Frazier, Judge and Hicks they honestly won't have a need for Schwarber either.

Betances provides much more value to a playoff team than Schwarber anyways.

Agree6 Disagree0

08 Aug 2017 22:10:35
The other point is that Yelich is going to cost a team WAY more than this. He's young and controllable, as well as ridiculously good. Start with a top 10 prospect, and add from there.

Pirates Offseason:
Pirates saved 10 million this season between Martes suspension, Kang's visa, J. Hughes release and Watson trade

Needs for Pirates: 1) Power hitting 3B 2) Veteran LHSP 3) lefty bullpen help 4) 4th Outfielder until A. Meadows is ready

Already got UTY Sean Rodriguez so check and started to help bullpen with Kontos but they need another lefty....

Internal option move Jose Osuna to 3B. External option Sign Mike Moustakas 4 yrs 44-52 million *If the pirates trade McCutchen. Or else this would never happen.

Sign Jhoulys Chacin 3 years 15-18 million

Believable0 Unbelievable10

07 Aug 2017 22:37:25
Mustakas is going to get a lot more money.

Agree3 Disagree0

08 Aug 2017 00:07:05
Big Delusional Bird, Moustakas will certainly get more than what you suggested probably double, and more like 5-6 years.

Agree2 Disagree0

08 Aug 2017 02:15:09
Veteran LH SP is not Chacin. He's right-handed. He would probably be a good signing though.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2017 02:16:24
He WILL NOT make 22 million a year batman that's Mike Trout money. And Moustakas is not Trout.

Thats 11-13 million a year Moustakas, who is getting 8.5 now. Ill even bump it up to 13-15 million a year for 4 years. (Which is McCutchen money) But that was a realistic pirates offer who never give out big contracts especially to players whos about to be 29. They prefer to over pay for below-average players like in recent memory. (Daniel Hudson, John Jaso, Antonio Bastardo)

Mind you I'd rather them spend big money on impactful players instead of overpaying for basically nothing.

Agree0 Disagree2

08 Aug 2017 13:39:40
Have you not been paying attention to what players have been getting thru free agency?

Moustakas will certainly get way more than the tiny contract you've predicted. Probably closer to 5/ 100 than anything.

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Aug 2017 14:06:58
Wow, you really are delusional. Playeres are making 30 million a year now, do you not pay any attention to the game at all? Moustakas will most defintely get 20 million a year. The fact you put Trout in this conversation is hilarious. He should be making more than 22 million and actually next year Trout will be making 32 million.

Agree3 Disagree0

08 Aug 2017 19:36:26
BigBird, this is the MLB, not the NFL.

Homer Bailey received $105M over 6 years. do I have to elaborate?

Agree2 Disagree1

08 Aug 2017 20:20:37
I really didn't fully read your last comment Bigbird, you cannot compare salaries like that. What someone signed years ago was the norm salary then. Salaries in baseball are going up, big time. The Qualifying offer after the season will 18 million, i think i read. If you are trying to say Moustakas won't get 18 million, you are more than delusional.

NY Mets send Lagaras to Detroit

Tigers send Verlander and 18 million to Mets

Believable2 Unbelievable14

Pretty convenient for the Mets. Tigers will still want something for Verlander, and if they are paying in $18M, it'll be a steep price.

Rays Offseason

TB- Jose Abreu
CWS- Jose De Leon, Lucius Fox

CWS have one big piece left and that's Abreu. They will look to move him in the offseason. His contract is reasonable and TB will be looking for pieces with control and affordable. This move benefits both teams.

Lucas Duda 4 years $36 million
Neil Walker 2 years $24 million

LF- Corey Dickerson
2B- Neil Walker
3B- Evan Longoria
1B- Jose Abreu
DH- Lucas Duda
RF- Steven Souza Jr
C- Wilson Ramos
CF- Kevin Kiermaier
SS- Willie Adames

C- Jesus Sucre
IF- Matt Duffy
IF- Adeiny Hechavarria
OF- Mallex Smith
UT- Brad Miller

SP- Chris Archer
SP- Jake Odorizzi
SP- Brent Honeywell
SP- Jacob Faria
SP- Blake Snell

MR- Dan Jennings
SU- Brad Boxberger
CL- Alex Colume

Believable5 Unbelievable7

03 Aug 2017 03:39:32
Your trade has some merit. The free agent signings? Not so much, especially Walker. That would mean Brad Miller, Matt Duffy, Hechavarria and Willy Adames all vying for playing time and the starting SS job. I don't think they traded Moore and prospects to put Duffy and Adeiny on the pine.

Agree5 Disagree1

03 Aug 2017 03:39:55
Also, you left Alex Cobb and Matt Andriese out of the team's plans.

Agree4 Disagree2

03 Aug 2017 05:05:06
Cobb is a free agent this winter.

Agree6 Disagree1

03 Aug 2017 18:02:34
Sox aren't trading Abreu anytime soon. Especially not for a headliner of De Leon.

Agree5 Disagree1

05 Aug 2017 03:49:18
Forgot that about Cobb. Dude will make big coin this winter.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Aug 2017 13:31:42
No worries. It'll be interesting to see what these middle rotation arms make. I'm guessing around 13-18M a year.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Aug 2017 14:03:38
Cobb is good enough that he would be a No. 1 SP on some teams, and the No. 2 SP on many. He will be at the high end of that spectrum.

Agree1 Disagree3

05 Aug 2017 18:12:13
I think we'll have to disagree on that. He doesn't have the peripherals to control front line starter money. Maybe for someone like Milwaukee or Kansas City.

Agree2 Disagree0

08 Aug 2017 20:22:54
I am going to agree with thestatbook on this. I don't see Cobb getting the top end of starter money. He is good enough to be a number 1 on a bad team like the Marlins or even the Phillies. A good team like the Dodgers, probably 4 or 5. I think no more than 15 million a year for Cobb.
