Now that the Padres got Galvis, they go full out. I know this won't happen, but I want to see thoughts on how close these packages would be.
2017 Padres moves a la 2015

Padres sign Hosmer 7 year $150 mill

Padres trade Renfroe, Lauer, Gettys for Christian Yelich

Padres trade Solarte, Jankowski, Anderson Espinoza, Jorge Ona, Jacob Nix for Machado and DJ Stewart

Padres trade Chase Headley and travis wood to Angels for Tyler Skaggs and Osmer Morales

Padres trade Jose Pirela, Allen Cordoba, and Kirby Yates to Mets for Matt Harvey

2B-Spangenberg/ Urias
OF-Myers, Margot, Yelich

The deal for Headley is pretty much better than the deal for Manny Machado. Headley won't command young, controllable pitching.

Also, that's an absurdly light package for Christian Yelich.

Just because the Padres were linked to one big free agent doesn't mean they're going all in. Remember how well that worked last time?

Also, who are Lauer and Gettys? Don't sound like players I'd want for Christian Yelich.

If they are getting a guy like hosmer, I am sure they are not pitching to him just the money. If he ends up coming to SD, they have to be pitching to him more. My guess is if they're players in him, they saying there's more going to be done. They wouldn't invest a possibly good rotation player to get Galvis if they weren't either.

Lauer is #8 and Gettys #21 per mlb. com in terms of prospect rankings on one of the deepest farm systems in all of baseball. Gettys hit 254 in A+ with 17 homers and 22 SB's. Decent in all 5 tools with a great arm for a CF. Lauer had a 3.30 era in his 1st full year in the minors and worked up to AA already. not far off.

Lauer and Gettys aren't top 100 prospects however, which is what I think the Marlins would want.
