Overpay for Kipnis and the Angels don’t have enough to get Freeman (if he’s even available in the first place) .

Agree2 Disagree2

22 Nov 2017 21:57:47
The mess the Braves are in right now, they probably need to keep Freeman, just to keep fans coming. or at least attempt to keep fans coming.

Agree1 Disagree2

22 Nov 2017 22:46:31
Same way they didn't have enough to land Simmons (if he was even available)

Agree1 Disagree1

23 Nov 2017 01:28:59
Serrano-are you seriously comparing Simmons and Freeman's trade values? Simmons was coming off 2 years of .617 and .660 OPS and Freeman's last 2 yrs his OPS is .968 and .989. It will take a lot to get the best player on the Braves. All you are offering are three 20 year olds who are not ranked in Top 100 prospects. They have 7 rated higher. WHY would they make that trade? NOT happening!

Agree0 Disagree1

The Freeman proposed trade has little likelihood of happening. The Braves would need to see above and beyond for a team to get him.

The Kipnis for Cron/ Calhoun is an over pay for the Angels. but, not completely without merit. The acquisition of Kipnis would solve the 2B hole while bringing a veteran presence. The Indians would be incline to pay more. To make the deal more palatable, the Indians could go one of two directions. Addition to level the deal or addition to improve both teams take on the deal:

Addition to level the deal:

Indians get: Cron and Calhoun
Angels get: Kipnis and one of Erik Gonzalez/ Ryan Merritt

Both Gonzalez and Merritt have shown ability to perform on the big stage and are ML ready w/ 5 years of club control

Addition to expand the deal:

Indians get: Calhoun, Cron and Jahmai Jones
Angels get: Kipnis and Francisco Mejia

These additions show the value Mejia brings as the # 13 overall prospect in MLB at a premium defensive position. Surprisingly, Mejia's best tool is his throwing arm over his bat, which has been pretty spectacular. Jahmai is special athlete learning / honing his craft as an OF'er. He is about a year away from being ML ready. This timeframe dove tails nicely into a role as an athletic starting OF or fourth OF with the Indians.

For my $$$, I'd grab Mejia if I were the Angels.

Thoughts?

Padres Offseason

Padres trade Brad Hand, jabari blash, and robbie erlin

Astros trade AJ Reed, JD Davis, and Rogelio Armenteros

Padres trade Wil Myers and Logan Allen

Yankees trade Clint Frazier and Chance Adams

Padres trade Yangervis Solarte and Matt Sczur

Angels trade Tyler Skaggs, Eduardo Paredes, and Jose Soriano

Padres sign Alcides Escobar 2 year/ $15 million

C-Hedges
1B- Reed (Naylor, MILB depth)
2B-Asuaje (Urias MILB depth)
SS-Escobar (Tatis MILB Depth)
3B-JD Davis/ Spangenberg
LF, CF, RF-Frazier, Margot, Renfroe

SP-Lamet, Perdermo, Skaggs, Adams, (Rea/ Strahm/ Lockett/ Quantrill/ Lauer/ Luchessi

With this, the Padres could bring in some additional veteran arms for the back end of the rotation and some veterans off the bench for the lineup. They would have a solid young roster to build on and money to spend if certain positions don't pan out.

You undersold Hand, Myers, and Solarte.

I'm beginning to question your Padres fandom.

5/ 160 for Arrieta?

That would be the starkest of overpays for a FA I've seen in many years of following baseball.

It makes me curious to see your terms for the Santana and Machado signings.

To Cubs: Roberto Osuna
To Jays: Ian Happ

Who adds?

Believable2 Unbelievable11

17 Nov 2017 13:40:07
The Blue Jays. The Cubs wouldn’t even consider this.

18 Nov 2017 22:32:09
Not terrible, but I think Schwarber is more likely here.

Jays hang up the phone laughing.

20 Nov 2017 17:55:58
The Jays turn down that trade?

Ross Atkins must be a worse GM than I previously thought.

Pirates get RP Miguel Castro
Orioles get SP Ivan Nova and 2B/SS Kevin Kramer

I'm not really sure if this would work but the Orioles don't seem to want to tear down and think they could contend. Their rotation is a mess and they have a surplus of decent middle relievers. Pirates throw in Kramer to try and get the Orioles to pay the contract of Nova and Castro would be the primary middle reliever for the Pirates. Maybe add a lower prospect or cash going to the Orioles.

Mets get Joey Votto

Reds Get Dominic Smith, Andres Gimenez, Thomas Szapucki, Robert Gsellmen, and David Peterson

1. Votto ain't leaving Cincinnati. He won't waive his NTC.
2. This ain't enough.

STL gets ozuna and Ziegler from Miami for Alcantara,Bader,Hudson,and Grichuk

Believable3 Unbelievable9

15 Nov 2017 14:47:13
That's a low return for Ozuna. I'd imagine a deal for him would be centered around Flaherty, and then maybe those pieces.

Agree8 Disagree3

15 Nov 2017 06:41:51
Giants get Giancarlo Stanton and cash

Marlins get Heliot Ramos, Chris Shaw, Chris Stratton, Tyler Beede, and Garrett Williams.

This may or may not be an overpay, but Giants need to do all they can do to get Stanton, and to avoid him possibly going to LA.

Believable2 Unbelievable12

19 Nov 2017 23:08:17
Let the Dodgers take on that contract. Especially if this is the cost for Stanton.

There's very little chance they'll give that return for him.

Agree3 Disagree1

22 Nov 2017 22:00:55
thankfully, it sounds like the Giants are willing to only part with Joe Panik, Tyler Beede, and Chris Shaw.

PIT acquires: 3B Yangervis Solarte
SD acquires: SP Nick Kinhgam (AAA), 1B/ 3B Will Craig (A+), SS Stephen Alemais (A+)

Believable1 Unbelievable10

14 Nov 2017 04:18:49
Geez, that's quite the overpay.

Agree6 Disagree1

14 Nov 2017 14:57:52
The basis of this deal is to provide the Pirates with a 3B or SS that can remain for years to come. Solarte is a one year guy with two team friendly options. The Pirates have two guys in their minor league system that can provide what Solarte brings for almost no expense. Giving up a Middle of the Order SP and or a couple more guys for a .250 hitting, limited power journeyman infielder makes little sense. The Pirates can do just as well for about the same price in the free agent market by signing Alcides Escobar or, even The Todd Father.

Agree2 Disagree1

You sure you're a pirates fan?

Sign:
Wade Davis 4 years, $62 million
Alex Cobb 4 years, $56 million
Tony Watson 2 years, $13 million
Cameron Maybin 1 year, $5 million
Rene Rivera 1 year, $2 million

Trade:
Javier Baez or Ian Happ as main piece for another controllable starter or more bullpen help.

1-I think Cobb ends up getting more

2- Just curious as to what Cubs fans think about leadoff. If it's not addressed via FA/ trade, who you got in that spot?
