A couple of trades, might not be the best.

Phillies get: Austin Romine
Yankees get: PTBNL (Seth Rosin)
Why: Phillies could use Romine instead of Cameron Rupp as backup.

Twins get: Erik Surkamp
White Sox get: Steven Gruver
Why: Thielbar is struggling, and if his struggles continue to go on into the season, Surkamp can serve as the 2nd lefty behind Brian Duensing.

Smyly came over in the Price trade. I doubt San Diego gets him for spare parts.

Yankees don't need Utley, plus that isn't a good trade for him. The Cole Hamels trade is laughable. The Rays aren't going to trade Smyly. Scott Feldman is not worth that much. Navarro is not worth that much.

Padres trade Wisler, Gyorko, Despaigne, Liriano, Alonso, Vincent

Phillies trade Hamels, Howard, 50 mill of cash for howards contract

Phillies get young players who are all MLB players. Starting 2B, 2 quality starters, 7/8th inning releiver, starting quality outfielder who used to be the Padres #1 prospect. They also get a starting 1B who could benefit from a smaller park.
Padres get another big time starter and a 1B who can drive in runs.

This isn't going to happen. It seems like it would have been one made months ago. Plus how much of Hamels contract are the Phillies going to pay?

BATMAN!

Howard brings down Hamels value a lot, I feel like the Padres are going see how Alonso preforms. Also I feel like a Hamels trade will happen at either the all star break or trade deadline. That being said what about this
Padres trade: Austin Hedges C, Hunter Renfroe OF, Casey Kelly RHP, Cory Spangenberg 2B/OF and PTBNL
Phillies trade: Hamels and some cash

As a Padres fan, why would you want your team to give 5 young, controllable players for 2 highly paid 30+ year olds?

Wisler, Despaigne, Liriano, and Alonso are all arb-eligible or pre-arb. and Gyorko has a super friendly contract.

Then there's the fact that the Padres won't get $50M in that deal. That's them giving Howard away for free. I'd guess about $35M, which is one year's contract paid + his 2017 buyout.

With that, the Padres would be taking on $143M in contracts over 5 seasons, while only giving away probably $40-50M in that time. So they could be taking on $100M in extra contracts all the while significantly damaging the farm.

This trade would kill your franchise.

Mets could consider these options for their lefty reliever role

1. Sign recently released Joe Beimel.
2. Claim Xavier Cedeno off waivers if he doesn't make the Opening Day Roster.
3. Claim Sam Freeman off waivers if he doesn't make the Opening Day Roster.

The move that makes sense to me is signing Joe Beimel, due to his experience. I don't think they will trade for Brian Matusz right now, but it could be foreseeable in the future if Beimel continues to struggle like he has in Spring Training (that is if he A. Doesn't retire, and B. Makes the 25 man roster)

if the Padres end up with Olivera, if.

can anyone see this possibly happening?

Padres trade Jedd Gyorko

Angels trade CJ Cron

Gives the Padres a left handed power bat at 1b, gives the Angels a 2B that can start longterm and is better than Ruttledge.

23 Mar 2015 08:41:28
I guess I could see the price being a little lower if the Giants were willing to take on the full contract. $116M into his age 36 season, plus an extra 5-13 million on his option ($5M buyout or $13M option). for any team to take on $120+ million in salary and only move a few pieces that will make the league minimum for at least two years is a sizable price to ask. it would certainly keep the price tag on Longoria down a little.

But I don't see Tampa Bay getting rid of Longoria. So unless there's word they are shopping him, it will take a huge package to even convince Tampa of doing anything.

Don't get why Toronto went out to trade for Saunders. Yes it's interdivision but an obvious choice should have been to acquire Daniel nava. Good average hitter to slot in the 7th spot, above average arm, and can play first to give Edwin a rest and let pillar develop a little in left. Red Sox also have a varitable plethora of outfielders so they would listen on an offer for Nava. Also would've been cheaper than happ.

To Tor: Daniel Nava, Stephen Wright/Zeke Spruill
To Bos: J.A Happ

Toronto would've gotten a Durable fielder(unlike Saunders) to take over for melky+ pitching depth

Boston gets a solid starting pitcher to go along with Porcello, Miley and Buchholz

Happ is on Seattle

Mntwinsfan

I don't really get your criticism of the Toronto FO. How is it their fault tht Saunders(who is a much better player than Nava) was sideline by a completely unprecedented injury(his torn meniscus was caused be his stepping on a sprinkler head during outfield drills)?

Highly Biased BoSox Fan

(0)

@highlybiasedbosoxfan Saunders only played 73 games last year cause of his legs, I'm not talking about the freak injury, he's been injury prone before that injury which doesn't bode well on the turf field. Yes Saunders is faster, and is a tad better defensively, but Nava brings the component of giving nectar action a needed break at first and therefore giving pillar/Viciedo playing time to develop

@mntwinsfan: this is hypothetical if TOR didn't trade him to seattle

Woods

(1)

20 Mar 2015 20:29:53
Even if Happ was available for Toronto to move (he's not, since he's with the Mariners). saying he's a a solid piece is comical.

Happ is average at best.

Happ is not average. An average player is valuable. Happ is a below-average swingman type who most teams have 5 versions of.

Hey guys I am back!!
And I think I have finally thought of a deal that everyone will think is fair

Mets-Reds trade:

Mets get: Cozart and Cingrani

Reds get: Gee, PTBNL

This makes sence because the mets need a shortstop and a lefty reliever

And then the Reds get pitching depth after trading 2 of them this offseason and with one of those deals they got Escobar who can take over for Cozart

Crazysull

You just struck out again Sull. Back to the bench.

This isn't as bad as the other ones you've posted but it doesn't make sense, mets need gee now that wheeler is out for the season, cozart is not a upgrade over the mets current shortstops

Except Cingrani wants to start and was upset by the move to the bullpen. And the Reds have plenty of starters.

Hey the mets are being run like my friend runs his fantasy team. They try to get stars without giving up highly touted prospects or their Stars already in the MLB like getting Tulo or Desmond without giving up Syndigaurd ya right. And Flores isn't horrible so it isn't like they have an shortstop they should just be like the Red Sox who are also unwilling to trade their top prospects(s) (but still are offering people fair deals) for an ace and just wait till best offseason and sign for one they shouldn't be in any real rush the only really "aging" player on their roster is Wright and they have a highly touted second base prospect who should be ready by the time Wright is gone and letting Murphy move to third so they still have time because of their unbelievably young core the only other team that might have a younger core is the Cubs and all their prospects

These are really bad Chris Davis is way better than Howard, Davis has the potential to have another huge year this year. And if they were to trade for Howard Phillies would have to include all but 10M. And you have way to much going to philly.
Second trade, I don't know how many times it's been said but red sox will not trade Swihart. No Swihart no hamels! I think they're going to wait until the off-season to get a stud pitcher

clark_k

Phillies are going to pay 50 million of the 60 million owed to Howard. And that trade is too much for Howard. And again the Red Sox refuse to trade Swihart, otherwise a Hamels trade would have gone down months ago.

These are both awful. Davis is much better than Howard, and the Red Sox will not trade Swihart.

Everyone knows the mets need a lefty in the bullpen so 3 possible moves from most likely to least likely
Option 1: Sign Michael Kirkman
Option 2: trade Jack Leathersich LHP and PTBNL to braves for Luis Avilan
Option 3: trade Gavin Cecchini SS, and Michael Fulmer RHP to Orioles for Brian Matusz and cash

Clark_K

(4)

If I were the Mets , I'd do the Matusz deal. Kirkman has decent stuff, but gives up too many walks to be the go-to left you of the pen , and Avilan's good seasons have been propelled by aberrantly low opponent BAPIPs.

I agree if I were them I'd want matusz. I just put Kirkman first because he wouldn't cost them prospects and would be cheaper than matusz. And while he does walk a lot of guys he has a good groundball percentage

An injured Zack Wheeler is far more valuable than an injured Jurickson Profar.

As a Mets fan, you should be ashamed.

natedub

^Why. The Mets are subtracting an injured stud from an area of surplus for an injured stud in an area of scarcity. Seems like a solid deal to me, as both Wheeler and Profar have a similar projected return on their injuries.

Highly Biased BoSox Fan

20 Mar 2015 20:27:41
BoSox, and upon their return, the Mets will know what they are getting out of Wheeler. he'll be back to normal.

We haven't seen anything good from Profar when he was healthy in the majors. he's got serious question marks all around.

Wheeler is far superior to Profar. it's not even remotely close to debatable.

natedub

(1)
(1)

I disagree. With Tommy John surgery, Wheeler's future is just as obfuscated as Profar's(not to mention the SSS for Profar's struggles). Barring concussions, a torn UCL to a pitcher may the most devastating injury in sports.

21 Mar 2015 14:30:11
You do realize that there are tons of pitchers who have had Tommy John surgery who have come back and been just fine, right?

With Boston starting pitching being hit around, they will give in to the Phillies and trade Henry Owens, Sean Coyle and Blake Swihart for Cole Hamels.

I don't think so. I think the Sox will take their lumps this year, let a couple contracts come off the books, and go after some of the free agents next winter such as Price, Samardjiza, Cashner and Cueto.

The Red Sox aren't going to make a stupid knee-jerk trade like that because of some bad spring training starts. Let's wait till they pitch some games where they're actually trying to win before we judge, ok?

As good as Stroman was, and will be, this injury may benefit the Jays in the long run. It frees up 2 spots in the rotation for Sanchez and Norris and stops the "Sanchez in the pen" rumors. With the young guns the Jays will have front line starters so there shouldn't be an issue with that and they have a potent lineup. The Jays need 1 arm in the bullpen, preferably a guy with some experience closing. On the bench the Jays have players capable of playing multiple positions so pinch hitting and late inning replacements shouldn't be a problem.

I think Maicer Izturis makes the lineup before Devon Travis. Travis finished in AA last year, he'll be a mid-season call up most likely.

natedub

(3)

Martin will start at the 2 hole but once Pompey gets more at bats at the ML level he will move up in the order. Smoak is in front of Martin because he is a LH bat so you don't have 5 RH bats in a row.
Soriano would be great, not sure he will go that low

17 Mar 2015 14:54:47
Santana will not be healthy to start the season, and you are missing Todd Redmond, he is a 100% lock for the bullpen. Also there is no chance Sanchez is in the 2 spot, he has 0 career starts, Hutch is locked into the 2 spot. And I agree with the others above on the lineup.

bluejaysfan777

If Santana can regain his health, I think I'd start him over Sanchez, who has great stuff, but lacks the command or repertoire depth to be a good starter, IMHO.

Smoak is hitting terribly this spring, I would give Valencia the chance to take the DH spot and play everyday as a DH, 1B or spot Donaldson at 3rd the off day

Look at the samardzija trade. Cubs got Russell for samardzija which is comparable to cueto. Reds will be insisting on getting chi chi or ranaudo to make up for the starting pitching the Reds have lost

__Early Season Trade__

*I'm personally staying away from anymore of the C. Hamels trade drama for the time being. The Sox still making good use of their depth and focusing on some younger Pitching talent would be more worth their efforts without giving up the farm.

Nationals get:
-D.NAVA OF/1B
(Versatile Switch Hitter/Excellent #'s from LeftSide;Excellent Defense;Decent Cost-Controlled replacement for the aging/injured N.McLouth;who hits FA at end of season. Nava should work well with sharing time with M.Taylor,T.Moore,and D.Span-who also hits FA at season's end.

-D.MARRERO SS/2B
(Excellent Defense/Average-Decent Hitter;quality future backup/replacement behind Y.Escobar,D.Espinosa,or I.Desmond;who hits FA at season's end.


Red Sox get:
-B.Treinen RP/SP (Future 3 or 4 SP with decent groundball %,ideal fit for groundball pitching makeup on the Sox's Staff.)

BoSoxBob

Do the Nationals even need another OF. Yes Span is out for a little bit, but do they really need another.

BATMAN!

(2)
(3)

Rest assured,they will. Span's Core Muscle Tear is not an injury to take for granted. A great chance he reinjures it. I am also not fully confident with Werth staying healthy after his shoulder surgery either. McLouth(if he also can stay healthy after his injury),Moore,Taylor,Harper. a great chance of a potentially slim outfield.BATMAN,the way I see it,why take a chance if you're the Nats. in a contending season. I find that deal to be quite fair and responsible from a Nats. point of view.

BoSoxBob

(1)
(3)

With Span out and Werth injured as well, I think a better fit for the Nats might be Gerardo Parra in Milwaukee. He might cost more than Nava, but Washington wants to win now. For that matter, Shane Victorino could make more sense than Nava.

LongtimeBaseballFan

(0)
(2)

Point taken.Parra or Victorino are indeed viable options rather than Nava. A couple of notes though.

1. G.Parra might be kept around in Milwaukeee,as the team might also use him as an option at 1B to help out with A.Lind and his ailing back.
2. I don't know if the Nats. would be willing take on Victorino's 13M $ tag, even if the Sox were to chip in a bit.

More than likely not going to happen because its within the division but just throwing out an idea.

There are no words to describe how terrible this trade idea is.

Crawford's defensive upside is enormous, plus he's not a bad #7 or #8 hitter.

Not to mention, the Giants intend on using Panik at 2nd in the long term.

Guys just wanted to see if a deal for Papelpon and Hamels could be made where the Phils retain some of Hamels salary while not doing so for Papelpon it makes sense since Jays need good mlb pieces and a starting pitcher and a closer would be a great add and adding hamels would slot our rotation great and when Stroman comes back next year while also giving us a chance at the playoffs this year. The jays future rotation headed by Hamels as there leader would be great young controllable arms.

So my question is what would a blockbuster deal between the phillies and jays look like for Papelpon and Hamels and what prospects would be involved (Not including Hoffman, Sanchez, Norris, and Pompey because there regarded as the core of the future and 3 of the 4 will make major contibutions this year). And remember jays and the phillies have history making blockbusters example-Roy Halladay deal

Tdot1334

How could there be a blockbuster when you eliminate the top 4 prospects from the deal? The Jays might have enough left to get Papelbon, but not Hamels, and certainly not both.

The Mariners need a bullpen piece. so they should go get a guy who has pitched a total of 16 innings (10 in the MLB, 6 in minors) in the past two seasons?

The only reason I could see Arizona doing this deal is to get an upgrade at catcher. but nothing will happen until mid-season when they know what they are getting for sure.

Here's one that makes some sense for both teams.

Texas sends injured INF Jurickson Profar to the Mets in exchange for SP Dillon Gee.

The Rangers need pitching, and Profar's stock has plummeted, but Profar provides a possibility for the Mets' future. This move also clears up some of the Mets' logjam on the mound.

I'm sure the Mets would want more than an injured player. I mean they are getting damaged goods. And who knows if Profar will ever be the same.

Here's the deal Batman he's still only 22 so obviously he has a better chance of getting back to who he was a couple years ago apposed to a 35 year old guy that has had the same injuries. The risk is very high, but the reward is higher, if he stays healthy he can be the mets star offensive play. I say roll the dice and go for it. But Texas might have to add a guy that can play this year

^He's injured. He has a bad shoulder, which he about to be for the second straight year. He maybe young, but the fact he has been injured the Mets would want more as an insurance policy, so they don't get the short end of the stick in case Profar becomes a bust once/if he returns.

Holy frick I know he's injured for the second straight year, yes I said the mets might need a guy or guys who can play this year. And it seems like a lot of the guys on here including you are rude negative people. Yes I've mad a joke or two about crazysull but some of you have gone too far. And to say that a 22 year old that has been injured for 2 straight years is going to be a bust is asinine

^Don't forget, when Profar was healthy and playing in the majors, he was garbage. He has a ton of growing to do yet. and having missed two years in a row to injury, he'll have even more to do. considering he'll have rehab plus developing big-league abilities. You're looking at a 2-4 year window before he'll probably ever be back to what his old value, which may not even happen still.

At this point, the Rangers have no trade value in Profar. He couldn't play at the MLB level, he's injury prone, and he's got miles to go. I'm not sure if Profar will ever amount to his status as a prospect.

The Mets should stay as far away as humanly possible from the headaches he'll bring.

I never said he was going to be a bust. I said who knows what he will be like after injuring the same shoulder and same muscle two years in row. its a big unknown. And thanks natedub for further proving my point about Profar.

Some of you have said this, and to clarify: The Mets of plenty of pitching depth, and would not miss Gee at all. But, they could be getting a diamond in the rough in Profar. Texas could use Gee, and isn't going to miss Profar with Andrus and Odor there. Win-win.

I'm assuming you would do better than garbage if you were a major leager at 20? Oh wait you aren't even in the majors! People assume since Stanton trout and Harper have made it look easy that it is, its not. You can't say a guy with 2 injuries is injury prone if that's the case then everyone in baseball is injury prone

Here's an example of a player who has not been the same since injuring his shoulder, yes a different age and position, but still. Johan Santana has not been the same since he injured his left shoulder. Whens the last time he pitched in a season or even a full season.

Seriously Clark?? No, I haven't played. But at the same time, I'm also not paid a half million dollars to play and am not a top prospect that will never amount to what they thought I would. As for his play. It was terrible. Horrible. Garbage. That's not to say I had huge expectations, but I realize how far he has to go to be the kind of player they thought he'd be. He's got a lonnngggg ways to go yet to be a top player in the majors. And that's assuming he'll be ready again.

LBF, to your last point. It's not a matter of who will miss who. It's a matter of value.

The Red Sox wouldn't miss Allen Craig, but they won't give him up for a tube sock. At this point, Gee has far more value than Profar. Givibg him up for nothing would be foolish.

You call yourself a yankees fan?
Trade 1, Doubront is overrated and not worth Warren and Culver.
Trade 2. is an underpayment for Hamels. Its being said by Jon Heyman that the two sides have not talked in a long time, refuting Cafardo's report. Also I doubt the Yankees trade Judge.
Trade 3 and 5, are just as horrible. Smyly has been shut down due to shoulder tendonitis.
Trade 4, Its just awful, Lobstein's numbers in the minors aren't good at all and same goes for his brief times in the majors. Plus the Yankees have enough lefties for the pen.

There is no way the Red Sox give up their starting catcher and top pitching prospect for a 36-year old coming off an elbow injury who, even with the salary relief you suggested, would cost them at least 40MM over two years.

Mets-red sox trade:

Mets gets: Marraro

Boston gets: Gee

Then

Boston- Pirats trade:

Boston gets: Polonco

Pitsburg gets: Bucholtz, Jbj

I know that Boston is stacked with outfeilders but Polanco is still young and can come off the bench and also be part of the future plans in Boston with bogarts betts Owens and now moncada
And the Pirates can just put Hart who they say is doing well in camp and then have Tabata or Jbj as their 4th outfeilder.
I know that it is less likely after the Pirates traded their 4th outfeilder Shnider but I still think this deal will happen.

And it gives Boston an average arm to add to the rotation and then let's them deal one of their starters who they didn't just get (Clay or Kelly) and I think Clay has more value and Polonco could add to the sox insane amount and skill level of prospects.

A top 50-60 prospect in the game and a pitcher who could play tomorrow has SIGNIFICANTLY more value than a guy who by the time he's ready will have missed two years of baseball in a crucial time in his career (the development stages).

It's not even remotely close.

When Profar returns, he'll still be 23. A 23 year old former #1 overall prospect is worth significantly more to the Rangers than a replacement-level pitcher and a prospect at a position of depth.

04 Mar 2015 19:52:46
What the hell do you think the Rangers can possibly get back for Profar? No team in their right mind is going to give up anything more than a turkey sandwich for him at this point, and there's no spot for him upon return from injury (Fielder, Odor, Andrus, Beltre/Gallo).

Even getting Dillon Gee at this point, they'd be moronic not to take it. If the Mets are stupid enough to add Plawecki, they'd be idiotic to turn it down.

Profar is going to take 1-2 years after his return to be ready to play again, and no one is really sure he'll return to form ever again.

#1. I don't think they'll get anything for Profar. I just think it would be stupid to sell low on him for a pitcher who would probably post a 4.50+ ERA in Arlington.

#2. I would not like that , because Beckbam is considerably older than Profar and all of the Red Sox pitchers are better than Gee.

Profar is toast, BoSox.

There's no guarantee he'll be healthy in 1-2 years. So for any team to try and sell him off, even for spare parts, is selling low.

The team that's selling high is the Rangers. If the deal is on the table, take it. Don't look back and move on.

Plus, I'm sure they could even upgrade with a guy who is 2 years older and ready to play today in Tim Beckham.

Look, I know Profar is an extreme longshoreman to be a productive player at this point.

However, there is still is a chance for him to be good. I see no reason for the Rangers to give up on that chance for a pitcher whose production could be easily replicated by any one of Ross Detweiler, Anthony Ranaudo, Lisalverto Bonilla, or Nick Martinez at 1/10 of the salary.

Obviously Dillon Gee comes with problems of his own, obviously his salary versus performance. My point is: anything, literally anything, is an upgrade, production-wise, than having Profar, who will literally have no spot when he returns.

And let's not forget, he was pretty much garbage when he was healthy. add in the time he needs to get his act together, plus recovery. he may not find his touch til he's 30.

I vehemently disagree. Dillon Gee is completely valueless, especially at 5MM. Just releasing Profar would be more beneficial to the Rangers(not that I'd do that), as they'd be receiving the same production they' get from Gee(nothing), only for free.

Look, I don't like Gee. I don't think he's all that great. He's coming off a season where his ERA+ was 87. His 4.52 FIP was atrocious. He's a meatball pitcher who gives up a ridiculous amount of home runs. I don't think he's all that great. He's not worth his salary. The Mets know that, and would likely eat a portion of that just to move the poor sap.

That being said, he's still got some value. He has posted a 2.9 WAR over the past 2 seasons, so there's obviously some ability to get production out of him. He had a very good 2013 (which is part of the reason his salary is what it is).

While I don't think anyone should give up the farm for him, he has the potential to add some value to a handful of teams. Comparing him to Profar at this point is negligent and absurd.

Even with Profar's injuries, he's a better player than Gee. Profar is still young, and will be when he gets back. While his value is obviously diminished a lot, it's still higher than a mediocre pitcher who probably won't be a significant upgrade over Colby Lewis next year.

His value is obviously diminished a lot. That's probably the understatement of the century.

I would bet a somewhat reasonable amount of money to say that Profar will not ever return to his old form. I can't think of very many guys to miss two years of baseball only to come back and be of much value.
