Obviously all these won't probably happen but most of them make sense.

Gotta say, you generally give everyone else grief for their trade proposals, so when people bash these, you're going to think it's just payback.

It's not.

These range from okay to terrible. The worst is the Dodgers-Athletics trade. The best is the Rangers-Padres swap.

All are decent and very likely but these teams don't think like you. Just look at the trades in the past couple months and years almost 50% are 1 sided.

Not enough for the brewers.

So we don't know what to expect, you know what I mean the jerk?

Athletics-Dodgers trade isn't good. Hill is the best available SP. And Reddick is still a very serviceable OF. And Doolittle has been one of the best setup men/ Closer the last few years.

Red Sox Guy, if you're not a fan, that's okay.

I'd be interested in knowing why you think that. (For what it's worth, 99% of the time, I at least offer my rationale for saying why I think it's not good. )

I like the Yankees-Nationals one.

And for the record Red Sox's Guy he did say "trade ideas"

Fair enough. And, to be clear, more often than not I at least partially agree with you when you bag on someone else's proposals.

The A's-Dodgers trade is bad. Too much going to LA for deLeon. Oakland would be better off trying to deal those guys separately to get more in return.

I cannot see David Robertson being dealt for Chris Shaw, either. I don't think Shaw even gets the talks going.

The Yanks will get more for Chapman.

The Indians have stated that they will not trade Frazier. I know anything is possible, but Lucroy is a catcher, and they have a short shelf life. I don't think Cleveland would do it, and they shouldn't.

The others seem okay, as I stated.

The thing with Robertson is he is very pricy, and hasn't been worth the money. He's owed $25M through the next two years.

Giants owner has said he is more interested in taking on salary than moving major pieces. Robertson qualifies as "money".

But I could see more going to the White Sox, certainly not as much as you'd think.

Looking at the A's trade, it is much too light. I will definitely acknowledge that much.

Just remember lucroy can play first and dh too. Doesn't always have to catch . One way to rest his knees.

Yes, Lucroy can play first. However, his value is as a catcher, where is bat surpasses almost all others. As a 1B, he is very average.

But doesn't Cleveland have Napoli and Santana?
