Mets

Sign

Todd Frazier 3 years $36 million

Alderson said the Mets are still going to make one "significant" move in the infield. I think Frazier or Walker would be the signing. I'll stick with Frazier due to his RH power.

Lineup
2B- Asdrubal Cabrera
CF- Michael Conforto
LF- Yoenis Cespeses
RF- Jay Bruce
3B- Todd Frazier
1B- Adrian Gonzalez
C- Travis d'Arnaud
SS- Amed Rosario

Bench
C- Kevin Plawecki
IF- Wilmer Flores
IF- TJ Rivera
OF- Juan Lagares
OF- Brandon Nimmo

Starters
SP- Jacob deGrom
SP- Noah Syndergaard
SP- Matt Harvey
SP- Steven Matz
SP- Zach Wheeler

Bullpen
LR- Seth Lugo
MR- Paul Sewald
MR- Josh Smoker
LH- Jeremy Blevins
7th- Anthony Swarzak
SU- AJ Ramos
CL- Jenrys Familia


This is a sneaky team that could easily contend in the NL if they stay healthy. The key word is "IF" but they're talented enough to make some noise this year like they did in 2015.

You didn't need to include the entire 25-man roster simply for one roster move. We can figure it out.


2.) 19 Jan 2018 16:54:27
I think he was giving the full roster in order to make the point that the team could wind up pretty good this year. With the amount of posts that are in here daily, I don't mind having more in depth posts to read.

Again with that godawful Machado trade?


2.) 20 Dec 2017 14:53:46
If the Cubs could be guaranteed that Machado would re-sign, this actually wouldn't be a terrible trade. Without that guarantee, this is just way too much. I do think they should trade Schwarber to an AL team, as he's just terrible on the defensive side, and they might be able to find one of those rare real win-win trades. The big issue I have with Machado's fit on the Cubs is Bryant. They already have a young star player at 3B, and they have a young star player at 1B, meaning if Machado can't handle the defensive side of SS, they don't have a great way to fit all three. Bryant is not a good enough OF to play him there full time, and they don't have a DH slot to rotate the three through.


3.) 20 Dec 2017 23:04:04
Machado is good enough defensively to play SS.


4.) 21 Dec 2017 14:21:48
Ideally he would be, but he has had some knee issues in the past. With a guy his size, that could wind up being an issue playing all of your games at SS as opposed to 3B. He's a great get for anyone, don't get me wrong, but I feel like whoever does wind up with him should know there's more than a slight chance he'll probably have to slide to 3B at some point.


5.) 21 Dec 2017 19:11:41
LeoCTallon3 you should really understand the price for Machado before posting stupid comments like "Again with that godawful Machado trade? " The offer the Cubs made today was Russell, Almora, Montgomery (12Up. com), which is right in line with this offer. If you think BAL is going to sell him for any less, you're mistaking.


6.) 22 Dec 2017 02:29:40
Have the ORIOLES accepted it yet? NO THEY HAVE NOT! They'd still probably want more pitching.

Don't see the Indians doing that deal, and the O's deal isn't too bad but they would never do that.


2.) 18 Dec 2017 20:47:27
^^^^I think Cleveland would do this.


3.) 20 Dec 2017 16:13:53
Those are two perfect targets for the Mets to go after, but I don't think these packages get it done. It probably wouldn't take much more for Kipnis, as they seem to be looking to move him, but Baltimore will probably require a bit more. I still think that Harvey could be that little extra a team would need based purely on his potential to turn it around. He's essentially a lotto ticket at this point. He could pull a Bartolo and become a really good player again, or he could be Allen Craig and just be completely done way too early. I think if you add him to the Baltimore trade, they'd think about it. They've been missing a staff ace since Moose went to the Yankees, and might be willing to take the chance Harvey can reclaim that "it" factor.

Cubs aren't trading both Russell and Schwarber unless they can extend Machado.


2.) 19 Dec 2017 14:15:46
Britton will bring in way more.


3.) 20 Dec 2017 16:24:09
I think Britton would bring more as well. I'd probably wait until the deadline on him, as you're usually going to be able to hold a team's feet to the fire more then. I'd ask for Harvey as well in the Jones trade as a lotto ticket, and I agree that the Cubs would have to know Machado was staying in order to move that much. All in all though, if the O's were wanting to go through a rebuild, this would be a good way to go.

As a pirates fan I would take this but I don't think the Yankees would give up that much.


2.) 13 Dec 2017 17:21:44
Yeah, that trade got me excited, but I doubt Cole and Harrison get all that.

This is okay, but why is the roster for 2019? They'd likely add at least someone next offseason.

Tyler Chatwood would be their fifth starter, not Montgomery.

As I said on your rumors post, no to the Machado trade.


3.) 20 Dec 2017 23:06:46
Arrieta is worth more than 3yr $60Mil.

Reed is a closer which holds much more value. And over the past two years, he has been very consistent. Reed is better than Swarzak and will definitely bring back more.

If they're getting both Gray and Alonso, I can see them getting back both. Either way, the Yankees are tearing down a good farm for some mediocre players. Not sure I agree. Gray is too inconsistent for my liking.

No, but Chapman isn't available right now. He is the best Reliever available this year and his value goes way up for that reason.

I didn't, but I have heard that the Yankees are working on a trade for both Gray and Alonso and they're interested in Florial. I think Mateo and Adams would make this a good deal for both.
