Brewers trade Yelich, Hader

Padres trade Myers, Morejon, Baez, Weathers, Ona, Marcano, Feole, Barley.


1.) 25 Feb 2021 13:55:45
So, let's get this straight:

The Padres get Christian Yelich AND Josh Hader, and the Padres get to unload Wil Myers' contract, and give up a bunch of high variance prospects who don't have a bunch of value anymore, as well?

Why, exactly, would the Brewers even think about this offer?

2.) 25 Feb 2021 13:58:26
A trade of this magnitude would require a package with either:

MacKenzie Gore and a few 45 FV prospects


CJ Abrams + Luis Campusano AND a few 45 FV prospects.

Milwaukee has zero reason to dump Yelich for lesser assets.

3.) 25 Feb 2021 17:08:55
Why do I feel I hear the same song and dance about needing to include gore, abrams, or campusano every single time and they haven’t been included to get guys like snell or darvish?

4.) 26 Feb 2021 16:24:18
Umm, they gave up Luis Patino, a consensus top 20 prospect to get Blake Snell. So, yes, they did have to give up someeone great to land Blake Snell.

If it took a 60 FV prospect (Patino), a 50 FV prospect (Hunt) and a 45 FV prospect (Wilcox) AND a controllable MLB catcher to land Blake Snell, what do you think it would take to get Christian Yelich AND Josh Hader?

Suggesting a package of Abrams (60 FV), Campusano (55 FV) and a couple of 45 FV guys isn't trat ridiculous.

In fact, such a trade package is probably too light.

Crazy idea for a crazy team

Padres trade Gore, Abrams, Myers, Lucchessi, Baez, Ornellas, Lawson

Angels trade Trout

C: Nola, Campusano, caratini
1b: Hosmer
2b: Kim, Cronenworth
3b: machado
Ss: tatis
Lf: pham
Cf: trout
Rf: Grisham

Morejon/ weathers
2022: clevinger added.


1.) 30 Dec 2020 17:22:02
Crazy is the right word to describe it.

Any deal for Trout has to, I repeat HAS TO, involve Tatis. No exaggeration.



20 Dec 2019 06:37:16
Padres trade Abrams, patino, morejon, Baez, Potts, and head

Indians trade lindor and clevinger.


1.) 21 Dec 2019 23:17:28
Clevinger is one of the best pitchers in baseball and still under team control for another 3 seasons.

Lindor is one of the best players in baseball and still under control for 2 seasons.

To get BOTH of them in a trade, I doubt you want to know the name of the player Cleveland will insist upon.

(I'll give you a hint: none of these players would headline that deal) .

2.) 21 Dec 2019 23:26:15
I'll put it less cryptically: the Indians have insisted on BOTH Gavin Lux and Dustin May for just Francisco Lindor alone.

So, here's the "Trade for Lindor and Clevinger: Choose Your Own Adventure" Game.

You have to give up one of the following: Fernando Tatis, Jr. or Chris Paddack.

If Tatis, then:

Choose a complementary piece: Patino, Lucchesi, Trammell, Abrams, Lamet

If Paddack, then:

Choose at least TWO of the above complementary pieces.
PLUS choose one other add in: Campusano, Morejon, Naylor, Yates, Weathers, Potts.

In other words, it'll be a monstrous haul, and nothing close to the trade you've presented here.

3.) 23 Dec 2019 07:27:38
Go to the chris sale trade, 2,4,8 prospects were dealt for 3 years of service. Lindor has 2 years of service so don’t even go there with the whole tatis or paddack will have to go. For Lindor only they’d be happy to get the padres 2 and maybe 5 prospect, if not lower. Get out of here with that stuff.

4.) 23 Dec 2019 13:09:19
Ryeguy, I know they teaching reading in SoCal, so do yourself and read.

The trade wasn't just for Lindor. It was Lindor and Clevinger. That's going to require way, way more than anything you'd ever be comfortable. It's going to be a huge name, and almost undoubted a name that's already in an MLB uniform. Plus a couple of high prospects. The Indians would immediately look like they came out like bandits in the trade.

Also, I wouldn't be so damn sure of the Padres system. Their previous "Lindor trade guy" (Urias) was traded for a mediocre pitcher and a 4th OF. It doesn't seem that teams are all that impressed with some of the guys Padres fans love.

5.) 23 Dec 2019 17:22:49
My point is that you would have said the same thing if the trade was only for Lindor . I know your way of talking, you’re the know it all who really knows nothing. Was just trying to prove a point that it wouldn’t take that much to land Lindor like everyone has been saying simply if you go back to the sale trade. I think they have an offer on the table that they’re considering, they just trying to squeeze just a little more from teams with the whole “send us your best offer” message.

6.) 23 Dec 2019 21:49:52
You also insisted that Lindor could be had for Luis Urias, who was later traded for a really laughable return. So it's not evident that your evaluation of the Padres system is based on reality.

Look, I'm well aware that the Padres won't trade Paddack or Tatis. But if the Indians are demanding Lux AND May for just Lindor, I'm not sure the Padres have a package of minor leaguers that really matches that if it doesn't include one of those two.

And you keep saying to go back to the Chris Sale trade. You realize that took the #1 prospect in baseball, right? I mean, the above package doesn't even have the Padres #1 prospect (Gore) . And the Indians have far less reason to move Lindor than the White Sox had to trade Chris Sale. The demand will be astronomical, and rightly so.

7.) 26 Dec 2019 22:57:13
None of this matters. The Padres won't trade for Lindor.

That would mean A. J. Preller doesn't get to use Profar at 2B, and the hard-on Preller has for that guy is apparent. Profar is the Padres' second baseman.

1.) 25 Nov 2019 02:54:27
Dear God, we've reached peak lunacy.

The Padres aren't getting Betts AND Sale for that paltry return. Officially the worst trade I've seen on this site yet.

2.) 26 Nov 2019 12:52:46
It's not a great trade for a variety of reasons.

But you don't have to be a jerk. Its just baseball.

Rangers trade Jurickson Profar

Padres trade Jon Jay and Ryan Buchter

Padres 2016 opening day field
C: Hedges
1B: Myers
2B: Asuaje/ Spangenberg
SS: Profar
3B: Schimpf/ Solarte
OF: Margot/ Jankowski/ Renfroe.


1.) 12 Oct 2016 22:24:29
Wow this is bad, especially considering that Jay is an FA at seasons end.

2.) 12 Oct 2016 23:18:47
Knowing A. J. Preller's trade reputation, he probably would try and trade an impending free agent for a legitimate young player.

3.) 13 Oct 2016 03:33:27
I got a laugh out of that Jerk. I think the Padres should go out and try to get a guy like Profar.

4.) 14 Oct 2016 21:03:29
No Profar is better than that Padres would have to offer more.



11 Nov 2015 06:55:24
What would it take for the padres to get Todd Frazier?


1.) 11 Nov 2015 07:28:42
Take the top 4 prospects in your organization, pick 3 of them. That's what Cincinnati ought to ask for.

2.) 11 Nov 2015 13:39:19
It would take a lot which they don't have much of anymore since Preller traded everyone last winter.



22 Jan 2015 18:32:40
Another thing that I think could possibly happen, not likely too however.

Padres trade Gyorko, Kelly, Dickerson.

Nationals trade Desmond

Nationals get a starting 2B who is young, a potential SP, and a guy who can fill in and play 1B or LF in dickerson.

Padres sign James Shields, 5 years $100 mill. He wants $110 and they will get close but nobody will give him that.

C- Norris
1B- Alonso
2B- Spangenberg
SS- Desmond
3B- Middlebrooks
LF- Upton
CF- Myers
RF- Kemp

SP- Shields
SP- Cashner
SP- Ross
SP- Kennedy
SP- Morrow/Johnson/Erlin/Despaigne/Luebke/Wisler




22 Jan 2015 18:27:48
This is not a rumor, this is just something off the top. just something that could happen, not likely to though.

Padres trade Gyorko, Hedges, Dickerson, Maybin, Casey Kelly, Ryan Butler, and Yeison Ascensio

Nationals trade Desmond and Zimmerman

Padres fill their hole at short and get another solid SP, both are in their last year on the books. let's spangenberg play 2nd whose a left handed bat.

Nationals get a starting caliber 2b, one of the top catching prospects in baseball, a backup OF who could spell Span, a guy who can play 1b and LF in dickerson and is on the verge of the bigs, kelly who was once a solid prospect and can pitch in the bigs, and a young pitching prospect in butler.


1.) 23 Jan 2015 02:32:52
Why would the Padres give all that up for 1 year of a shortstop and a pitcher?

Not to mention, giving up Gyorko for Desmond puts them right in the same spot offensively. That and Gyorko is under team control for several more years.

And the Padres were one of the best pitching teams in baseball last year. they need more offense, not more pitching.

Plus, I hope they get Shields. He'll be toast in about 3-4 months.



21 Jan 2015 08:40:27
After giving it some thought, the padres have made all of these moves including arbitration signings and are still 1.5 mill under last years payroll. of they can find someone to take on Quentin and or maybins contracts and maybe even Kennedy or Benoit, then they have more room to work with. With that said.

If moncada cannot be posted until after June 15th, the red Sox, rays, and Yankees can only offer a max of 300k. preller is big on the international market and could make a play on moncada.

Also, if they do find teams to take those contracts, they could definitely have enough room to resign Upton and that let's them trade renfroe. orrr sign a guy like shields.

Just throwing this out there because so far, I wouldn't be surprised by anything preller does.


1.) If its after June 15th, which it probably won't be, the Cubs and Rangers can spend more than 300,000 again, and are at that point the favorites despite both having an influx of middle infielders.

how did not trading for a reliever work for them?

That is a ton that the Padres would be giving up to a guy that is due for his last arbitration year and a pay increase. You're getting rid of 2 of the best arms that they have coming up in 2020/ 2021 like you alluded to. Patino from what i've heard is close to off limits. Weathers and Naylor could be had though.

The wheeler deal would be perfect for them.

looking at this now, this would be an over pay by the padres. reyes would be their best hitter not named vlad right now.

@minnow75 Yes i agree that his stock is increasing. However, both of those prospects are or would be ranked higher in toronto system. Baez is ranked 57 overall on mlb which would place him 3rd on toronto's system. Reyes is also under team control for awhile, 23 years old. Hit 280 with 16 homers in limited time in petco. i wouldn't say this is far off in a trade for a guy in a contract season.
