ANGELS OFFSEASON

NEEDS
Lefty Reliever (LOOGY)
A #3 type starter
Utility Infielder

When it comes to lefties, everyone will want us to sign Andrew Miller. Well, Jepsen, Smith, Street is a GREAT 7-8-9, maybe one of the best. Miller is not worth 6-8 million a year, and some teams like Detroit will wants him to close. We just need a gut that can get lefties out. I hear that the Cardinals are shopping Randy Choate, and yes, he's old, but he gets the job done.

Angels Get: LHP Randy Choate

Cardinals Get: RHP Trevor Gott, 1 million

Now, the angels have traded Lindsey, Rondon, Alvarez, and Morris for Street AND Choate

Now, since we are done with that, let's sign Francisco Liriano because we have money that we DIDN't spend on Miller.

Sign Francisco Liriano to a 2/17 contract

Now, a utility infielder. let's just get Beckham back for a few million.

This team isn't 100% star now, but things that happened bad last year should be fixed this year.

Liriano will go for more than that

Yankees Off-Season Plan

Sign LHP Jon Lester
Sign RHP Rafael Soriano
Sign LF Melky Cabrera
Sign LHP Andrew Miller
Trade for SS Troy Tulowitzki: Gardner, Betances, Pirela, PTBNL

Re-Sign David Robertson
Re-Sign Chase Headley
Re-Sign Brandon McCarthy

2015 Team is as follows:
C- McCann
1B- Teixeira
2B- Prado
3B- Headley
SS- Tulowitzki
LF- Cabrera
CF- Ellsbury
RF- Beltran
DH- Rodriguez

Rotation: Tanaka Lester Sabathia McCarthy Pineda

7th inning- Andrew Miller
Set-up: Soriano
Closer: Robertson

(5)

As a Yankees fan this would be awesome. Getting rid of Betances would suck, but for the best SS in the game, heck yeah!
A reunion with Melky is an interesting idea, he is a decent defender with plus offensive numbers. Not as fast as Gardner but still a viable option atop the lineup.

(1)
(3)

As a yankees fan, no to Tulo. too injury prone.

(4)
(0)

They have enough outfielders and don't need to bring back Cabrera. Nor do they need to bring back Soriano. And your a fool if you think that package will land Tulowitzki.

ANGELS OFFSEASON

I know a lot of Angels fans want to free up money by trading Josh Hamilton and CJ Wilson, but I have this question. Who would replace them?

OUTFIELD OPTIONS (If Hamilton Leaves)
Efren Navarro
Colin Cowgill
Grant Green

In addition to those three, the free agent market for the outfield isn't to great and trading for an outfielder would be unfavorable seeing as though the team wants to rebuild their farm.

So in all honesty, I think the Angels should hold onto Hamilton because he is our best option by far.

PITCHING OPTION (If CJ leaves)
Garrett Richards
Jered Weaver
Matt Shoemaker
Hector Santiago
Cory Rasmus

If CJ were to leave us, that would make our rotation a whole lot thinner, yes the free agent class of pitchers this offseason is strong but the Angels should think about holding off on spending big on a pitcher and save their draft pick. The Angels farm has produced great players and they need to get back into that mentality.

For me, keeping CJ is key to the success for next years season. He adds more depth to the rotation and can still be a solid number two or three man for us.


The Angel need to focus on fixing the little things this offseason, which is adding a lefty reliever like Andrew Miller

Also some bench help, I think the best way to do that is by signing Torii Hunter and using him as a DH, this would make CJ Cron drop down to the bench. Which would make the team deeper.

(5)
(0)

I will bet a lot of money on this: The Angels, even if they sign a free agent SP, will NOT have the best record in baseball next season.

LongtimeBaseballFan

(2)
(2)

Though as an Angels fan I like all this, but we got Jepsen, Smith, Street which is pretty lights out. Maybe instead of Miller we can get Randy Choate from the Cards for maybe Jairo Diaz and a million bucks

(1)
(0)

^^Just curious, what makes you say that?

(0)
(0)

^ Trading for those two would be the cheaper option, however the Angels traded a good amount of the farm in 2014. Besides there is no problem with having to many good arms in the pen. Miller can be another lights out option for the Halos pen. And if they sign Grille back, this could be the pen

Long Reliver = Cory Rasmus or Hector Santiago
5th =Salas - RHP
6th = Grilli - RHP
7th = Jepsen - RHP
8th = Miller - LHP
8th = Smith - RHP
Closer = Street - RHP

That is arguably the best bullpen in baseball.

Also I know I put two 8th inning guys. I put that depending on the situation.

Reds off season:

Trade SP Homer Bailey and 2B Brandon Phillips to Yankees for INF-OF Martin Prado, RP Jose A. Ramirez and PTBNL (RP Jacob Lindgren after June draft)

Pick up Cueto's $10M option and try to sign him to extension

Buyout options of Ludwick and Hannahan (saves $6. 5M)

Non-tender Ondrusek (saves $2. 3M)

The trade saves them $11. 5M, which, allong with the other savings, brings their projected payroll of $133. 1M down to a more manageable $112. 8M. Prado would be in LF, with Kris Negron and Skip Schumaker splitting 2B. Rasiel Iglesias replaces Ondrusek in bullpen (or possibly goes into rotation along with Tony Cingrani)

(6)
(9)

I don't know if I see them trading away Phillips.

Good thought process though.

natedub

(6)

Reds would be all over this if they
could unload Phillips and his
salary!

(5)
(2)

That's a lot of talent to trade for Prado, who would best be utilized as a utility player.

LongtimeBaseballFan

(6)

I agree all these moves are necessary if the Reds want to continue to contend. As a small-market team there is no way they can afford two $20M plus players and still hope to field a competitive team.

Phillies Off-season:

Trade KC-PHI

Byrd for Christian Binford

Trade BOS-PHI

Cole Hamels for Henry Owens, Blake Swihart, Manuel Margot and Eduardo Escobar

Trade TB-PHI

Howard and 50 mil. for Enny Romero

Sign:
Colby Rasmus - 5 yrs, 70 mil
Yasmany Tomas - 7 yrs, 105 mil
Justin Masterson - 3 yrs, 39 mil

(4)
(9)

If Hamels is traded to Boston, they would have to put Betts in the offer if they want a deal. No on Rasmus and Masterson.

(5)
(5)

Red Sox had a payroll of $157M at season's end. Before arbitration and extensions. likely a additional $20-25M (which is a low number), you're suggesting they add the following:

Hamels- $24M
Rasmus- $14M
Tomas- $15M
Masterson- $13M

Red Sox 2015 Payroll would be somewhere between $240-250M. no way.

And no one is taking Howard, unless the Phillies eat the remaining $125M on his contract. And it certainly won't be a small market team like Tampa Bay.

Howard would be a good fit for the White Sox, if the Phillies would pay 50 Million of his contract. The Sox no longer have either of their DH"s. Two minor league prospects is all it would take.

WILD TRADE

Angels: Aroldis Chapman

Reds: Howie Kendrick, Kevin Jepsen, Mark Sappington

(2)
(16)

The Reds have Phillips as their second baseman.

(12)
(1)

The Reds will probably look to trade some of their players to reduce payroll, but Chapman will not be one of them

(10)
(2)

Agreed. Reds will probably look to trade off pieces to reduce the payroll, such as Phillips or a starting pitcher (Latos or Leake). The player they should trade, in my opinion, is Votto, but it will be very difficult to find a taker. Trading his contract would allow them the financial flexibility to keep the rotation in tact and add a mid-range outfielder. Unfortunately Walt Jocketty will probably do nothing and continue to sink his ship.

The Rockies would do better if they could trade Tulowitski to St Louis for one of their starters and an outfielder, plus one of their top prospects.

Yankees send Gardner, Pineda to Reds, Cervelli to Pirates

Reds send Latos, Bailey to the Yankees

Pirates send Jeff Locke to the Reds

I can't see these happening. I think the Reds would want prospects for Latos and Bailey.

(8)
(8)

Yea not happening

Giants28

(7)
(7)

These deals allow NY to seriously upgrade their rotation, to one of the AL's best. Pittsburgh gets a better Catcher than any in their system, majors or minors, to replace Martin who will be out of their price range. The Reds cut payroll while remaining competitive next season, which is their goal. Gardner becomes the Left Fielder they've been needing and slots in behind Hamilton in the bating order as a steady on base performer for Votto and Frazier to knock in. Pineda and Locke are proven Pitchers, with cost control--better than prospects

(6)
(2)

So the Reds are giving up Homer Bailey and Mat Latos for Jeff Locke and Brett Gardner? Don't think so.

(5)
(4)

Agreed. Even though the Reds will be desperate to reduce the payroll, they are not going to give away two top-line starting pitchers in their primes for anything less than multiple quality prospects

TarheelRed

(4)
(4)

Actually for Latos you are receiving Gardner and Pineda, which is a nice deal for the Reds, with Gardner jumpstarting the offense and Pineda the dart throwing machine whose BB/K ratio and ERA➕ would be tops on the rotation. Trading Bailey for Locke rids them of a #1 contract for a #3-4 pitcher (with two no-hitters, still not an Ace) while acquiring as cost controlled younger version of him, at an already advanced level. Now extend your real Ace, Cue to!

Daniel Murphy for Yoenis Cespedes

Mets get a much needed outfielder
Red Sox get a much needed left-handed hitting 3rd baseman

Red Sox still have Castillo, Betts, Craig, Victorino, and Nava for their outfield

Mets can place Dilson Herrera at 2nd.

I don't see how this even. To me Cespedes is a better overall player.

^The Rays have a club option on him which they are definitely going to exercise.

It depends. It's a $7. 5M Option or a $500K buyout. It really depends on what forecast the Rays are going themselves. If they don't see themselves being competitive, they won't spend $7. 5M.

As a Reds fan, I am very concerned about how the team will shake out financially in 2015. According to this web site the Reds payroll will be somewhere around $129M (figuring what money is already committed, what the eight arbitration eligible players will get, letting Ramon Santiago go as a free agent and buying out Ludwick and Hannahan). That is a $19M jump from the team-record $110M from last season, which would be awfully hard for a small market team to stomach Where does that money come from or, more accurately, who gets traded to keep the payroll at a more manageable amount?

Votto and his albatross of a contract will be almost impossible to trade. Phillips and Bruce are each due $12M next season. Cueto and Bailey are both at $10M, with Latos and Leake right behind. I believe the Reds will have to explore trades for young and inexpensive players is return such as:

SP Mike Leake and RP Manny Parra to Colorado for OF Corey Dickerson and PTBNL

-or-

SP Homer Bailey and RP Logan Ondrusek to Boston for OF's Mookie Betts and Daniel Nava and P Matt Barnes

Either trade would address the void in LF and shave approx $9-10M off the payroll (which in Cincy may still not be enough). Thoughts?

(12)
(13)

They still will need to trade 1 or 2 more players. that's why I think they should cut their loses and trade Cueto and chapman and then try to get rid of Heisey, phillips.

(4)
(9)

Rockies won't give up offense for pitching considering their ballpark.

natedub

(1)
(13)

If they acquired Betts it would allow them to trade Phillips for prospects and clear another $12M.

(11)
(0)

^No, that's exactly the kind of trade the Rockies have to make if they ever plan to contend. They should have traded either Tulo or CarGo already for young pitching, but they can't seem to figure this out. They will never lure top tier free agent starters, so trades like this is their only alternative

(10)
(0)

The Red Sox won't trade Betts for Bailey. Cueto, sure. But Bailey's simply to overpaid for their taste.

(0)
(10)

I too am concerned about the Reds, especially when you consider that in 2016 they will have not one, but two players making in excess of $20M per season in Homer Bailey and Joey Votto (who I call the Reds "DH" or Designated Healer). I was surprised when ownership approved the move past $100M in payroll last year, and given the teams struggles I doubt Castellini will allow it to go any higher. I see the Reds trading off pieces at every opportunity and several years of fan frustration.

(10)
(1)

Agree! that's why I think they should trade Cueto and Chapman now before losing them to free agency. They could get good prospect inreturn for them and maybe they can keep Latos, Leake and hope their own pitching prospects can come up and with what they get in the trades.

(1)
(8)

I agree with your assessment, but I would rather keep Cueto and trade either Leake, Bailey or Latos. Latos would bring more in return than Leake since he is considered and #1-2 starter. I think their are several teams that would like to have him, such as the Red Sox, Yankees, Tigers, Braves, etc. A trade with the Tigers involving JD Martinez could be attractive to both teams.

This is hilariously awful. That Dodger trade is not that good. I don't think the Cubs would give a top prospect who can't be traded until the summer for Hamilton. I don't think Hunter would go back to Anaheim. And what compensation are the Rays going to get for Madden?

Rockies get: SP James Paxton RP Brandon Mauer SS Chris Taylor Prospect DJ Peterson
Mariners get: SS Troy Tulowitzki

Im a Mariner fan and if this trade did happen, it would be one of the worst trades ever

^No. . . .

(6)

I like this trade, but it will never happen. The Rockies steadfastly refuse to deal Tulo or Cargo, which means they will continue to suffer through tough times. It's not their fault, but they must trade one of these guys for multiple quality prospects if they ever want to compete again

(5)

Why it could work for the Rox: Paxton, Mauer, and Chris Taylor are proven talents at the mlb level in their current roles, albeit with small sample size. Paxton could be a No. 2 starter, Mauer could set up a closer, and Chris Taylor plays above average defense and hits for average. If DJ Peterson keeps the power he has shown in the minors, it would be timely young power that could help future contending Colorado teams, as opposed to the power of Tulo, which lately has been wasted in lost causes.
why it could work for the M's: they are desperate for a RH cleanup hitter. If Tulo could play 120 games per year at short and 40 at DH, it might lessen his chance for injury. His elite defense would be a bonus in the games he does play at SS. Tulo and Cano could be a keystone combo for the ages. Mariner fans, remembering the Jeff Cirillo fiasco, will be skeptical of Coors Field offensive numbers until Tulo does it at Safeco.

Giants offseason:

-Sign Colby Rasmus
-Re-sign Jake Peavy
-Sign Alberto Callaspo or another platoon 3B option.

Giants 2015 Opening Day Roster
1B- Belt
2B- Panik
SS- Crawford
3B- Arias/Callaspo
C- Posey
LF- Rasmus
CF- Pagan
RF- Pence
SP- Bumgarner
SP- Peavy
SP- Cain
SP- Hudson
SP- Lincecum/Petit
SU- Affeldt
SU- Strickland
CP- Casilla

Giants have about $45M coming off the books after 2015, I'd imagine they'll make a big splash then.

I'd be happier if we kept Panda but with what he wants. We need to look elsewhere. Not Callaspo or Arias in my opinion will get the job done.

Rasmus is not exactly what the Giants need. Rather, a guy who can slide into CF and perhaps bat leadoff in case Pagan's injury woes continue should be a higher priority.

Rasmus can slide into CF in a heartbeat. the only downside is he is not a leadoff hitter

Hopefully Pagan will be healthy

As far as third base goes, I'd imagine Sabean doesn't want to spend more then 3/40 to 3/50 on a 3B. with that, I'm not sure there is a third baseman that would be worth our time who would take less than that. Panda won't re-sign for less than the Pence deal, and he'll get it elsewhere.

As for outfield, Rasmus is a California kid and likely will come for a much cheaper price than other options. You keep him in left, he can move over to CF, but the Giants also have Gregor Blanco as a back-up option.

As for lead-off options, there's just not a lot of great options out there.

Wat about marco scutaro?

(0)
(1)

Scutaro won't be getting much playing time. He's so much of a liability at this stage of his career.

Also, where would they start him? It's pretty evident that the second base position is going to Panik.

Cruz is a huge defensive liability. Mariners won't sign 2 DHs.

V Mart is a distant possibility, but Nelson Cruz in Seattle? No chance.

M's need a 5th starter. Roenis Elias is not ready for the big leagues yet, and sign a vetren starter just in case Tiajuan Walker is not ready just yet.

^Elias is a fine fifth starter
