Yankees trade Greg Bird Tyler Austin Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez

Angels trade Mike Trout.

Not. Even. Close.


2.) 31 Mar 2017 23:24:35
The reason I say that is because the Angels need pitching. I don't think any of these guys other than Sanchez really blow up anyone's skirt.


3.) 01 Apr 2017 05:37:32
The Angels need a lot, they have don't have a good farm system at all.


4.) 01 Apr 2017 16:54:31
It's a start, but many prospects need to be included as well, including pitching.


5.) 01 Apr 2017 18:18:22
It would cost them both their young shortstops as well.


6.) 02 Apr 2017 01:31:08
Not both, but one.


7.) 08 Apr 2017 17:28:25
Sanchez, Glyber, Rutherford, Sheffield and maybe a lottery ticket like freicer perez?


8.) 08 Apr 2017 19:36:39
Stop trying to trade for Mike Trout.


9.) 09 Apr 2017 03:42:57
I mean the conversation is purely hypothetical. Best farm system in baseball and the best player in baseball. I don't think anyone is saying its likely to happen.


10.) 09 Apr 2017 22:18:21
I think it is more realistic than some might think. Likely? No. But within the realm of possibility.

The Angels have Trout under contract for 2018-20 at just over $34 million per season. They are also hamstrung with Pujols' contract. Trading Trout - or possibly persuading a team such as the Yankees to take on both contracts - would free up a lot of cash.

The Yankees have a great farm system right now, so they have the guys to pull it off. Names such as Frazier and Torres and Mateo would get the Angels' attention.

Too, the Yankees are the premier franchise in MLB. They love to have perhaps the best player too, for both competition and marketing. Think Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Berra, Mantle, and Jeter. Remember the buzz always going on with guys such as Reggie Jackson, Dave Winfield and Alex Rodriguez when they were brought aboard? Think about how big a splash it would make if Trout, a New Jersey kid, were to come to the Bronx.


11.) 10 Apr 2017 03:06:13
@Longtime. Agreed that its a good match for sure but like you said, just don't think its likely.

Also @erichosmerfan, I sat next to his best at one of his first games (against the chisox) couldn't have been nicer guys. Love to root for that guy.


12.) 10 Apr 2017 16:33:58
I understand the benefit to trading Trout, I don't see the reward in trading FOR him.

It's going to cost 1-2 elite young guys off the 40-man roster plus another 2-3 top prospects.

Trout is the best player, by far, in the game. But is adding him and creating huge holes in your lineup worth it? I vote no.


13.) 11 Apr 2017 00:03:49
The marketing alone for a team such as the Yankees would make it plausible.

Too, you have to remember that the Yankees have the farm system to give up in exchange. then a big pocketbook to sign guys to fill in the gap.

The Angels are not going to be good this year. So, if they want a rebuild, or reboot, then they could deal Trout, save payroll, and bring in several young guys. Think a package of Gleyber Torres, Clint Frazier, Justus Sheffield, Chance Adams and Dellin Betances wouldn't get the Angels thinking about it?


14.) 11 Apr 2017 03:45:40
One, mo, the Angels wouldn't accept that package for Trout. It would start with Sanchez + Bird, and then most of those guys.

Two, I never stated they wouldn't benefit from pulling the trigger. They would. Others wouldn't.

The Yankees would have to fill 3-5 pretty massive gaps in their organization. They do this while adding $25M on their payroll, so they'd have to add free agent talent and pay the luxury tax, or play with a sub-stellar roster behind Trout.

The question is, which is better: their lineup without Trout, or their lineup with Trout, but without Sanchez, Bird, Betances and others?


15.) 15 Apr 2017 02:59:07
I think the Angels need players around Trout to provide offensive but to trade someone like Albert trade him for some prospects that they can use to build around Trout.


16.) 15 Apr 2017 05:34:02
I don't think this late Pujols's career he will bring top prospects, or at least multiple ones. They can't get anyone around Trout, they need/ should begin to rebuild and they should trade Trout.

Never.


2.) 14 Nov 2016 11:42:22
Bad joke.


3.) 14 Nov 2016 15:43:19
This site is turning a little goofy i'd have to say.


4.) 14 Nov 2016 17:01:19
I can already see you saying "These moves are amazing and make total sense, so stop being mean".


5.) 15 Nov 2016 18:54:40
Man I've never seen such a Royals fanboy this is sad.

Pirates trade Andrew McCutcheon to Royals for Wade Davis.

EricHosmerFan

1.) 09 Nov 2016 01:42:49
Not nearly enough.


2.) 09 Nov 2016 01:49:48
doesn't really make much sense for either team and Pittsburgh would want more anyways.


 

 

09 Nov 2016 00:01:33
Royals trade Wade Davis and Billy Burns and Jarrod Dyson to Tigers for Ian Kinsler.

EricHosmerFan

1.) 09 Nov 2016 01:43:10
Not a good fit for either team.


2.) 09 Nov 2016 01:51:33
So it looks like you value Kinsler much more than McCutcheon?

I don't agree.


3.) 09 Nov 2016 19:13:50
I do Red Sox Guy because Kinsler is younger and better.


4.) 09 Nov 2016 20:19:17
Kinsler is neither better than McCutchen, nor younger.


5.) 09 Nov 2016 21:04:25
EricHosmerfan, Ian Kinsler is 34 and McCutchen is 30.


6.) 10 Nov 2016 23:49:36
this guy man.


7.) 11 Nov 2016 03:49:01
I'm starting to wonder if this guy is purposely being stupid.

Kansas City Royals offseason
Sign Colby Rasmus
Trade
KC gets Ervin Santana
MIN gets Jarrod Dyson and Ian Kennedy
Trade 2
KC gets Martin Perez and Robinson Chirinos
TEX gets A. J. Puckett.

EricHosmerFan

1.) 09 Oct 2016 05:29:03
A starting pitcher and decent catcher for pretty much nobody?

Serious?


2.) 09 Oct 2016 14:38:36
The Royals would probably rather have Kennedy than Santana, so why make that trade and lose an OF option?


3.) 10 Oct 2016 03:36:19
Rasmus not a good fit in KC. He's homer or bust. Not a hitters ballpark there in KC.


4.) 10 Oct 2016 16:14:19
Thank You Kansas City I would trade Chirinos and Perez in a heart beat they are terrible I would take anyone for them.


5.) 14 Oct 2016 21:01:42
Very true JakeFirePvP they are terrible.


6.) 14 Oct 2016 21:08:40
The Rangers should release Chirinos and Perez and Martinez too then we sign Fister and our rotation can be 1 Hamels 2 Darvish 3 Griffen 4 Fister 5 Holland.

EricHosmerFan

1.) 04 Oct 2016 20:25:15
first of all, how do have the Dodgers winning the World Series when you don't having them getting past the Nationals? Secondly the Cubs are better than the Dodgers, and so are the Rangers, Red Sox, and Indians.
