The Orioles probably do not have a roster to finish in the top 2-3 in the AL East this year. They have one of the worst farm systems in baseball (25th) so they also do not have the pieces to be able to make a trade in July. They would be wise to start thinking about the possibility of trading Britton to rebuild the system. Their biggest system needs are quality future rotation pieces and outfielders.
If the Nationals could acquire Britton, I think it puts them over the top and makes them the favorite to win the NL. They've already shown to be all-in this offseason.
Nationals get: Zach Britton LHP
Orioles get: Joe Ross RHP, Victor Robles OF (Nats #1, MLB #10), Erick Fedde RHP (Nats #2, MLB #75), Nick Banks OF (Nats #8)
19 Jan 2017 11:45:37
Too much for a closer, IMO.
19 Jan 2017 12:59:39
The Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller trades say otherwise, as does the Kimbrel trade, something you should know about Red Sox guy.
19 Jan 2017 13:05:45
You must hate the Nats
19 Jan 2017 14:29:13
the Nats just overpaid for Eaton I do not see them giving up this much and completely ruining their farm system. I see them going after a cheap reliable guy like Greg Holland who is a FA or maybe even someone like Steve Ceshick or Brad Boxburger. They would not cost a top prospect and can get the job done. Yes I understand that people would much rather have a supper star on their team but the cost is too much I am someone who prefers to get someone cheaper who can get the job done and be able to keep my prospects. Robles is going to be very useful for the Nats very soon, either when Werth retires and or Harper leaves they are going to need him to step up and fill that role. that's my thinking behind all of this and it is my thinking behind the Dodgers second base search as well.
19 Jan 2017 14:43:54
Jeez I wouldn't think the Nats would have to give up Ross AND Robles. I could see a deal revolving around one of them, but jeez not both.
19 Jan 2017 17:26:52
As we've seen with the Miller and Chapman trade, it will take a lot to get a premium closer. Especially one coming off arguably the best season in the last decade. The Cubs gave up their top prospect, a swing man, and 2 other prospects towards the top of their system for a half season of Chapman. You get multiple years of Britton, therefore requiring giving up much more. You could maybe tweak the Banks for a lower prospect, but it takes near this much IMO.
18 Jan 2017 02:14:25
Long shot deal for dodgers second base opening
Texas: Jose De Leon
Los Angeles: Jurickson Profar and Eric Jenkins
18 Jan 2017 13:39:47
Why would the Dodgers trade De Leon for Profar and Jenkins. Had Profar not been injured for 2 seasons and had more games in the majors to his name, maybe he could net a top prospect, but not now.
18 Jan 2017 21:31:19
Profar has very little value now, nowhere near enough to be part of a deal for a player like De Leon unless he is a third or fourth player added as a filler
16 Jan 2017 16:56:18
Since Jay Bruce to Toronto doesn't seem promising any more here's a trade with the Giants.
Giants get Jay Bruce
Mets get Bryan Reynolds, Steven Dugger, and Rodolfo Martinez
16 Jan 2017 17:30:48
Mets would be lucky to get Dugger or Martinez. No shot they get Reynolds.
They probably can get a teams 10th best prospect and a lower level guy.
16 Jan 2017 19:01:55
I think they could do this because the window to sign someone else is closing and this might be one of the better options left.
17 Jan 2017 03:25:40
Mets need to deal Bruce just to get rid of his salary. Anything back is a plus. Anything.
14 Jan 2017 20:55:31
White Sox trade: Frazier
Giants trade: Shaw, Jordan Johnson, Dylan Davis
White Sox get their 1B/ DH of the future, Johnson who has excellent command and could be a number 3 starter, and Dylan Davis who is so underrated he almost hit 30 homers and drove in 90 RBIs.
Giants get the power righty bat they need, this move let's Nunez be a utility player or even the starter in LF. Frazier isn't really expensive either he's only making 12M this season and is going to be a free agent after the season. Getting him makes the Giants lineup the deepest 1-8 can beat you and even 1-9 when Madbum is pitching
15 Jan 2017 02:43:42
Trade isn't bad at all. Not sure the chisox get that back but I sure hope so. However "deepest 1-8" in what? Their division? Yeah possibly.
15 Jan 2017 17:22:06
Eduardo Nunez in the outfield is a frightening thought.
15 Jan 2017 20:00:18
I'd much rather have Nunez in the outfield than a platoon of Parker and Williamson
17 Jan 2017 03:26:29
Why not keep Nunez at 3B and deal for Bruce?
17 Jan 2017 07:05:43
Giants are already lefty heavy and Frazier is way better than Bruce.
18 Jan 2017 02:26:36
If they trade for a rental piece like that, I think JD Martinez is a better fit. Even if he isn't much of a defensive outfielder, you at least have someone with legitimate outfield experience as opposed to Nunez. Martinez is a better hitter than Frazier too.
14 Jan 2017 18:52:26
NYM: Jay Bruce OF
TOR: Dwight Smith Jr. OF, Justin Mease SP and Aaron Loup LP
14 Jan 2017 15:45:56
Cubs - Dodgers:
Cubs get: Kazmir
Dodgers get: Pierce Johnson
Why: This gives the Cubs that last rotation arm they need allowing Montgumery to function as the swing man in the bullpen who can make a spot start when needed. I feel like keeping him in the pen would be the best situation because that is where he did best last year. For the Dodgers this gives them a young arm that can slide right into the bullpen which is not a strong point other than Janson and this allows younger players like De Leon and others to make the opening day rotation.
It probably won't happen, but what do you guys think?
13 Jan 2017 23:51:15
Rangers sign Tyson Ross I am so happy right now
14 Jan 2017 01:04:20
Could be a steal. I'm a little surprised it was for one year. I was expecting two years and a little more per.
14 Jan 2017 04:53:16
14 Jan 2017 04:59:47
14 Jan 2017 05:55:31
I seriously think this is one of the most underrate signings of the offseason. Was was really surprised you guys got him over the cubbies. Great signing.
14 Jan 2017 18:46:20
Minnow he only wanted one to rebuild value after missing most of '16
17 Jan 2017 03:27:24
Ross will be a nice midseason addition for Texas.
13 Jan 2017 03:26:12
Rockies trade: Jeff Hoffman, Raimel Tapia, Riley Pint, German Marquez
White Sox trade: Orlando Quintana
Rox have showed they r probably not going to trade Rodgers for any offer, so I thought about floating this idea out there. 2,3,4,5 prospects in rox system. Too much too little?
13 Jan 2017 06:05:44
I don't see this as a mistype, so who is Orlando Quintana?
13 Jan 2017 14:18:16
Never heard of Orlando Quintana, so this would be too much for him.
Would it be enough for Jose Quintana? Yeah. Rox prospects fall in two categories: pitchers, whose value seems never to be much, and hitters, whose value always takes a hit when they leave the mountain air.
That said, I don't see the Rockies as one SP away from greatness.
13 Jan 2017 18:06:17
I'm sorry I was thinking of a soccer play named Orlando Quintana when I typed this my bad guys
13 Jan 2017 21:15:58
^^^Batman just does it to bully people on this site. Don't apologize or waste your energy explaining. He'd rather troll you.
14 Jan 2017 00:04:16
I do apologize since there is an actual person by that name, I also didn't see it as harsh or mean for that matter.
14 Jan 2017 02:23:06
He's the poster we deserve, not the one we need
14 Jan 2017 05:01:01
Batman you didn't do anything wrong
14 Jan 2017 13:22:28
yeah, i realized that after I posted the apology. I don't get why Huskers thought I did.
14 Jan 2017 15:50:12
Value is there, and if the Sox needed young pitchers, this would be a great deal. But they need hitters now. With that being said, I think Hahn would demand Rodgers or Dahl.
So it would look something like:
12 Jan 2017 05:45:19
Mets get: Jose Abreu 1B
White Sox get: Robert Gsellman RHP, Dominic Smith 1B (Mets #2, MLB #55), Desmond Lindsey OF (Mets #6)
Mets need a first basemen badly. White Sox continue to add to their plethora of prospects they've acquired this offseason. They also get Gsellman, a young starter with 6 years of control who showed great promise in his run in New York this past season.
12 Jan 2017 11:46:35
What would the Mets then do with Lucas Duda? He's pretty solid.
The Mets already have a crowd in the OF with Cespedes, Grandy, Bruce, Conforto and Lagares. I guess you think they need more guys on the bench?
12 Jan 2017 12:35:30
The Mets have their next first basemen on their team already but he just haven't made the move yet. Watch David Wright move over to 1B due to his on going back issues. If not this year then next year. He definitely can't keep throwing from 3B with that back problem he has.
12 Jan 2017 16:03:32
Red Sox, I'd say Duda is about average right now. Him and Matt Adams are very similar in my mind. Bruce and Granderson will be gone at season's end, if not earlier. So that clears some room in the outfield jam. The team they have right now doesn't beat the Nationals.
12 Jan 2017 16:05:43
It's nearly a guarantee that Wright will never play over 100 games in a season the rest of his career.
12 Jan 2017 18:11:42
The question is: are the Mets willing to pay him?
He opted out of his contract in lieu of arbitration, and is set to be compensated very well. Do the Mets want to handcuff themselves to a guy set to make $10+ million over the next 3 arbitration cycles?
12 Jan 2017 20:21:03
I think Tood Fraizer is a better fit for the Mets
13 Jan 2017 03:45:02
Solid and average - pretty much the same thing
Yes, the Mets have a glut at some positions, and a scarcity at others. This might work if they would deal Conforto in the deal for Abreu.
