MLB Rumors November 24 2014
24 Nov 2014 05:15:30
Cubs sign Jon Lester for 6 years 150 million.
Jonny Gomes for 2 years 12 million
Jason Hammel 2 years 9 million
5. Wood or Wada
Trade Paul Blackburn and Victor Caratini for Miguel Montero.
With Lester the Cubs might have to go 7 yrs to get him, which I hope they do. Gomes would probably sign at 2yrs for 9 mil. Hammel wants 10 mil a year. I'd rather the Cubs gave 1yr 10mil to Masterson. No to the Montero trade, there are still to many cheaper/better options, Jaso just went on the block, Navarro is available, Avila could probably be had.
Yeah, Cubs won't go for Gomes but the Lester and Montero options are legit. Not sure if the Cubs will give up that much for Montero though.

NY Mets should trade Jon Niese , Dillon Gee , Rafael Montero , and Reuben Tejada for Addison Russell or Baez
The Cubs would trade Castro not Baez or Russell. We'd want Wheeler or Degrom bot older subpar pitchers
NO x Infinity

Astros recieve: Starlin Castro
Cubs recieve: Jason Castro
If the Cubs do trade any of their shortstops they will have to be overwhelmed by the offer. That wouldn't even make Theo & Co. raise their eyebrow.

Sign Lester 6/140 with vesting option for a 7th
Sign Sandoval 5/95
Sign Masterson 2/10
Trade with Phi:
Thoughts? I know it's a stretch but it would pretty much solve most of their problems besides the outfield and bull pen

The Giants will not do a lot of this stuff. They don't need Soto because they already have Susac and Sanchez as backup options. They don't have enough money to sign Maeda, and they won't sacrifice a draft pick for Robertson. Morse is likely gone as well, and Pagan won't be on the bench. Trading for Plouffe and signing Rasmus I do see as possibilities, but Rasmus would play left and the Twins wouldn't accept that trade. They have Miguel Sano coming up to play 3B and they already have Suzuki and Pinto to catch. And this roster only has 24 players.
23 Nov 2014 20:29:51
1. Susac seems much more adequate to back-up Posey than Soto does.
2. Pagan, when healthy, will not be on the bench.
3. I don't see the Giants giving up that much money for a guy like Robertson.
4. Maeda will cost a ton. start with about $20M for the bid, then his contract.
I like the Plouffe idea if the Giants can resign Sandoval. I'm also okay with bringing back Morse on a team-friendly deal, but I'd imagine he'd be more of a back-up.
23 Nov 2014 20:36:56
I would imagine spot #25 (he's shy a bench guy) would be Matt Duffy.
Colby leading off? don't think so

23 Nov 2014 20:40:18
That's a steep overpay for a reliever who has pitched 25 innings in the past 2 years.
I'm not sure if the Giants would use 3 middle infielders on the bench. they'd likely want a RH outfielder there. Gary Brown or Juan Perez would likely fit.
23 Nov 2014 14:58:32
Seattle acquires OF Matt Kemp from the Dodgers for
SP Hishashi Iwakuma. LA gets its rotation depth, the Mariners get their RH hitter.
23 Nov 2014 14:39:17
23 Nov 2014 20:44:59
The Blue Jays wouldn't have any reason to make the Ethier for Buehrle trade. Buehrle will make $19M, Ethier will make $18. the Dodgers would need to eat at least 40% to make it worth it, but with $19M coming their way, they won't eat it.
So, then you have the Blue Jays trading away a guy to pay an equal contract to a platoon outfielder.
They can do better.
23 Nov 2014 00:41:37
Yankees Get- Justin Upton(OF)
Braves Get- David Phelps(SP), Jose Pirela(2B), Bryan Mitchell(SP), & Ramon Flores(OF)
Please tell me this is a joke.
Braves would want top prospects not 4 useless prospects
The Braves would want at least two legitimate prospects for Upton. No a swingman and three AAAA guys
Highly Biased BoSox Fan
Yankees don't need Upton. And those 4 will not get him. ^^None of those guys are useless. Phelps is decent starter or long reliever. Pierla could start at second, Mitchell could start or relieve and Flores is a decent outfielder with starting potential.
22 Nov 2014 20:37:01
two different directions
two different ideas for the blue jays offseason
sign the panda 5y 102.5 mill
trade navarro to la for ethier
again trade navarro to la for ethier I like that trade
reyes and happ to the mets for daniel murphy and zach wheeler
jays sign jed lowrie to play short
Sandoval is almost certainly going to goto Boston. Its very hilarious that you think Navarro will get the Blue Jays Andre Eithier. Dodgers would want prospects.
23 Nov 2014 06:06:09
Where is all this money coming from? I could see a couple mil being given out on the front end of Martin's deal. not the back end.
Also, I don't think the Mets are willing to give up Wheeler in a trade. They seem to like him a lot.
22 Nov 2014 16:26:54
Mariners get - OF Justin Upton
Braves get - SS Brad Miller (to play 2B), SP Danny Hultzen
Sign Delmon Young
CF Austin Jackson
LF Dustin Ackley
2B Robinson Cano
RF Justin Upton
3B Kyle Seager
C Mike Zunino
1B Logan Morrison
DH Delmon Young
SS Chris Taylor
22 Nov 2014 22:07:52
Atlanta would want more MLB ready pieces they can use for Upton. Miller is blocked by Simmons.
I think they'd want Paxton or Walker for Upton.
Nice proposal. An All Star outfielder for a guy that is likely going to become a utility infielder, plus a pitcher who is always on the DL. Try again.
Not even close. Braves will want WAY more.
22 Nov 2014 14:39:27
The Braves need offense in a bad way, and the Heyward-Miller trade only exacerbated that need. So, how about this one?
Atlanta uses their rotation depth (Miller, Teheran, Minor, Hale, Beachy, Medlen) to acquire 2B Howie Kendrick.
The Angels get Mike Minor and a top 10 prospect, which shores up the LA rotation (Weaver, Wilson, Minor, Skaggs, Richards). The Angels slide Beckham or Green in at 2B.
They want pitching! This is a dumb trade
The Braves have Medlen and Beachy coming back this year, and the team ERA last year was solid. It's the offense that needs help, and lots of it. They traded Heyward to add pitching depth and cut salary.
^yea both are coming back from their second TJ surgeries.
22 Nov 2014 09:50:31
ANGELS NATIONALS TRADE
I am very much against the idea of the Angels trading Howie Kendrick away. As Dipoto said, "we will only trade him if we feel as though we get better." And the Nationals definitely have some starters that would make the Halos a lot better.
A straight up trade, both will be free agents at the end off the year, and both teams will address needed issues.
This one would definitely be a block buster trade. The Angels get a big time Ace at the front of their rotation.
The Nationals, now that they just lost LaRoche, are now in need for a first baseman. Cron's defense is shaky but he has great power, very young, and has a great contract. Plus the Nats fill their Second Base whole.
ANGELS ROTATION FIRST OPTION
ANGELS ROTATION SECOND OPTION
If the Angels were to trade Kendrick, I would much prefer them to do the Second Option. If your going to try and address the rotation, do it in a Big Way! This trade however would make the DH position a need for the Angels, they could definitely look at bring Torii Hunter or Kendrys Morales back to fill that spot in the lineup.
Now dealing with the whole at Second Base, I think the Likely candidates are Grant Green, Gordon Beckham, and Alex Yarbrough. There will probably be a battle going into spring training over the spot but I think Yarbrough should be slotted as the everyday Second Baseman, he is a switch hitter who has put up some really good numbers in the minors. Plus the Angels have been getting some great results out of their youngsters lately. Trout, Richards, Shoemaker, and Kalhoun. Maybe he could be the next rookie to join the list.
Get Fister he would be easeir to resign and trade for
I hate the throw a wrench in your second proposal, but the Nats are planning to use Ryan Zimmerman there.
It would be cheaper and easier to resign Fister, however after the 2016 season, both Weaver and CJ's contracts will be gone, so they will be in need for a top tier starter.
Actually, get Zimmermann as he's better. But, C.J. Cron is a potential 30HR threat and the Nats wouldn't have anywhere to play him because Ryan Zimmerman will play first.
22 Nov 2014 22:02:08
The Nationals aren't going to give up marquee pitchers for a 1-year rental of Howie Kendrick.
^ Howie and Zimmermann/Fister are all free agents after next season.
23 Nov 2014 20:32:11
^^^ I get that, but Zimmermann is WAY more valuable than getting a year rental of Kendrick.
22 Nov 2014 06:03:18
1. Trade Jordan Zimmermann to the Angels for Howie Kendrick and Kevin Jepsen (Kendrick and Zimmermann are both FA's after this year, as Jepsen makes the deal even)
2. Sign Max Scherzer 7/184 (Now that we traded Zimmermann, we should sign Scherzer)
This is a better NATS team!
So once MLB Network gives an opinion on what should happen, everyone goes with it. I don't think its a bad idea though.
22 Nov 2014 22:03:18
The Nationals aren't going to give up Zimmermann for a 1-year rental of Kendrick. I doubt the Angels are going to give up Kendrick for a 1-year rental of Zimmermann, either.
22 Nov 2014 01:16:32
Giants sign Sandoval 5 yr 95MM
Thats how much the Red Sox are currently offering and it sounds like the Giants are not.
21 Nov 2014 23:36:57
Idk if this would work but here you go.
Reds receive- Moya, Suarez, and Porcello
Tigers receive- Bruce, Hoover, and maybe Mike Leake
The Reds and Tigers do not match up well for a trade, even if the Reds decide to move Jay Bruce. All the scouting reports I have read on Moya list him as a below average player who, unless his approach changes, will have a hard time making it to the majors to stay
First I have no idea what reports you are reading, but he has dominated at every level, and is stil growing into his body. MLB scouts have him listed as a potential All-Star if he continues on this pace. Second Detroit doesn't need another hitter who can't play defense. Like reading do you check out his WAR.
You tell other people to do research, you do rilize that Bruce is a gold glove caliber defender. But I agree with you on Moya.
Quotes about Moya from scouting reports:
"has impressive tools, but has had problems turning them into baseball skills."
"gets himself out way too often by chasing pitches out of the strike zone"
"repeatedly looks foolish against off speed stuff"
"looks rough in the outfield. He gets poor jumps, making fly balls and adventure."
"destined to be a DH, if/when he makes it to the majors"
The Reds are the best defensive teams in the majors for a reason. Moya struck out 179 times in the minors. Not a player the Reds could use.
^thats pretty much what it says on his page on the Tigers top 20 prospects. And just because he is number 6 on the Tigers top 20 prospects doesn't mean he is a good prospects. You go to remember every team has top 20 prospect list and overall many players could out rank him. Plus the Tigers farm is one of the weakest in the majors.
21 Nov 2014 20:40:02
Mets get: Chris Taylor, Charlie Furbusch
Mariners get: Jon Niese, Ruben Tejada, Gabriel Ynoa

That trade is one sided. Navarro for a pitcher like Holland? I don't think so.
There's 29 players on your roster lol
Neshek is no closer.
22 Nov 2014 22:04:59
The Blue Jays have some money to work with on the front end of Martin's deal. but not at the end. They don't have a ton of money to spend.
21 Nov 2014 03:16:31
COL: Carlos Gonzalez OF
TOR: Aaron Sanchez SP, Franklin Baretto SS & AJ Jimenez C
Gonzales is real good, but Sanchez is one of the premier pitching prospects in the MLB right now. Jays are not giving him up for Gonzo.
SAS Champs 2014
21 Nov 2014 03:08:21
CIN: Jay Bruce OF
SD: Ian Kennedy SP, Will Veneble OF & RJ Alvarez RP
Doubt the reds take on another pitcher in his walk year
21 Nov 2014 17:25:18
I'd imagine Cincinnati would want Tyson Ross or Andrew Cashner in there.
21 Nov 2014 02:18:28
TOR: J.A Happ SP & Kevin Pillar OF
STL: Peter Bourjos OF
20 Nov 2014 20:33:03
I keep hearing about Harvey's innings, worry about Neise's shoulder and the need for a 2nd LHP in bullpen.
Why not do this:
6. Neise spot starts to lengthen the rotation
CL - Parnell
Neise (bullpen and spot starts to get him to 100 - 120 innings)
Only downside is Collins doesn't manage his bullpen well!
20 Nov 2014 16:27:34
32 million of 120 million owed
Mets don't have that type of money
Carl Crawford for Andrus?
21 Nov 2014 17:26:32
If the Rangers gave up Andrus, I doubt they want to take on a much worse contract in Crawford.
Worse maybe, but half way over. where as Andrus' is just getting started.
The rangers want starting pitching for andrus. Better then what was offered
20 Nov 2014 15:18:31
Sign Bonifacio and Neshek
This would protect the bullpen and it would give them more speed and versatility.
20 Nov 2014 15:17:28
Some experts believe that there is a high chance that the Tigers bring back Max Scherzer. In order for this to happen they would need to free up money somehow.
David Price to the Dodgers for Corey Seager.
Move Castellanos to leftfield and have Seager move to third since Iglesias is at short.
This move would allow the Tigers to get a little bit younger and potentially protect themselves in the future.
If Seager can live up to expectations and if JD Martinez can continue to produce at a high level then their future lineup could have a rising star like Seager, Martinez, Castellanos, Iglesias, an elder Cabrera, and Gose if he can be a plus defender and steal 40 bases.
Dumbest post I have seen in a while. Nick can not play left field. Seager is in single A ball and had a very rough time of it. Price is worth All Stars or two or three Top Prospects I mean top not oh he did well in fall league.
Don't think the dodgers give up arguably the best prospect in that game for one year of price
^best prospect in the game is probably Kris Bryant.
Actually Nick can play left field. But I agree Price is worth much more.

For someone who appears to be a yankee fan you sure post a lot of Tigers posts. The David Price trade laughable. The Tigers may have given up little for him, but I'm sure they will get more if they traded him. Jon Lester won't happen. I don't see how the Tigers would accept the Yankees trade since Castellanos is much better than Austin alone.
Detroit is going to non of these moves. First off where is Gettis going to play? He is a below average catcher defensively. Good hitter we have a DH. Miller is only going to sign where he can close read a little if u can. Joba is gone, Miller is not going to sign where he is not he closer. Read a little before you post. Video game trades.
20 Nov 2014 01:44:19
Cubs get: Cole Hamels
Phillies get: Addison Russell, Albert Almora, C.J. Edwards, Corey Black
20 Nov 2014 03:59:39
No Baez no deal
Take out Russell and add Carlos Ruiz on the phillies end. Then we can start talking.
21 Nov 2014 17:28:30
Huge overpay on the Cubs end. They can go sign a guy like Scherzer and keep those pieces.
20 Nov 2014 00:52:02
20 Nov 2014 00:47:39
Mets trade Noah Syndergaard, Zack Wheeler, and Kevin Plawecki
Rockies trade Troy Tulowitzki
Leaves Mets with still a great rotation of Harvey, DeGrom, Niese, Colon, Gee with Montero and Matz in the wings.
Rockies get a rightful massive haul for one of the leagues best hitters.
21 Nov 2014 17:29:28
So they can have Cuddyer and Tulowitzki combine for a total of 65 games played this year.
