One can't disagree with Betts but it would be interesting to see where the Bosox would be without JD Martinez.

2nd in BA
1st in hits
1st in HR
1st in RBI

Can you think of any prior player with those rankings not to win MVP.

But yes Betts will win it.

Also, I think Scherzer deserves it.

offseason trade:

A's get: Jacob deGrom and Todd Frazier

Mets get: Matt Chapman and AJ Puk

This is a very anti-A's kind of move. First of all, I don't think Chapman and Puk are worth deGrom, but even so, giving up young control and bringing back contracts are not Oakland's style.

Just realized I forgot about Holder in the bullpen. He has been stellar this year. Maybe he would be an attractive piece for the Nationals as a controllable dominant relief arm. Maybe he is included in the deal in place of either German or Medina.

Interesting idea, but highly unlikely. Rizza came out and said the Nationals aren't trading him. Could he be dealt in August, possibly if the Nationals fade even further back.

PIT acquires: RHP Sonny Gray
NYY acquires: OF Jordan Luplow, 1B/ DH Will Craig (AA)

Pirates get a pitcher with good road numbers and can use a change of scenery. Yanks get the RH outfield they desire until Judge is healthy and a good hitter who profiles as a future DH in Craig.

White Sox and Astros

Houston Gets:

Jose Abreu 1B
Luis Avilan LHP

Chicago Gets:

Yordan Alvarez OF/1B (#3 & #42 Overall - MLB)
Brandon Bielak RHP (#20)
David Paulino RHP (#23)

Overall, I don't think Abreu is moved before the deadline. All signs are pointing to his retention, but he could still be traded in the offseason. I'll throw this out in the instance that there is some change of heart in the org. If Alvarez was on the table, for instance, I would welcome a deal like this.

Houston gets another RH reliable to bolster their lineup. He hasn't been great (only a 108 wRC+ and a .328 wOBA), but all the predictive metrics are pretty optimistic about a turnaround moving forward, and we have already seen this in the last couple of weeks after a horrible slump. This would allow them to either play Gonzalez in left as it looks as though Tucker isn't quite ready. Gattis is probably best suited as being a power hitting option off the bench in the playoffs as well.

They also get a good veteran bullpen option in Avilan who has been effective against lefties (.214 BAA).

The Sox get a good prospect in Alvarez who they maybe try to develop at 1B given their abundance of OF prospects. They also get RHP Bileak out of ND and Paulino who they move to the pen bc he has not shown the durability to last as a starter. His 98-99 mph fastball will play well there and he joins a group of intriguing future bullpen options for the Sox.

Overall we know how fast windows can close for teams and it would behoove the Stros to add a dependable veteran bat (who they would also have for next season) to try and repeat as champs. They have the starting staff and lineup to do it. A 1-6 of Springer, Bregman, Altuve, Correa, Abreu, and Gurriel would be hard to beat.

Again I don't think this is likely but I think it could work out for both clubs.

Abreu will be fine. He’s a solid player. I think Alvarez is a great get for him. I wonder if they can get more on the back end, though.

Good base, though.

Mets get Brice Turang and Lucas Erceg

Brewers get Zack Wheeler and Seth Lugo

Believable1 Unbelievable17

28 Jul 2018 14:09:35
That's a great start, but if I'm the Mets, I'm looking to bring back more than just those two. Wheeler could probably bring those two back, and if Lugo is also being thrown into the deal, you're giving up the guy who would probably take Wheeler's spot in the rotation. The other parts don't need to be top 10 guys, but lower guys with possible upside.

Agree2 Disagree0

Turang has to be a player to be named later since he was just drafted, then officially can be named after the world series.

Agree1 Disagree7

28 Jul 2018 18:52:13
He can’t even be a player to be named. It has to be a completely different and new trade AFTER the World Series for Turang to be moved.

They did this after the Trea Turner trade nonsense a few years back.

Braves/blue jays trade
Braves get:
SP- Marcus Stroman
RP- Tyler Clippard
Jays get:
LHP- Luiz Gohara (braves no. 6)
RHP- Bryse Wilson (braves no. 14)
IF/OF Travis Demerriete (braves no. 25)
C- Lucas Herbert

Overpay or underpay?

Which team says no if any?

Wouldn't make sense for the Jays. He is finally healthy and pitching up to his standards.

If sure looks like this is the start of a re-build that should of happened last off season.

Stroman should be part of the future when the young guns are ready to come up.

Agree8 Disagree1

26 Jul 2018 22:18:18
Blue Jays would probably want a little more.

Agree5 Disagree0

27 Jul 2018 15:50:04
The more I think about it. The Jays are 3 years away from contending again. Stroman will be 30. Maybe its best to grab a couple top 100 pitching prospects and hope they pan out. The Braves are a good match.
