Marlon Byrd was just traded to the Reds for Ben Lively.

Seems fair to me.

1.) Good deal for both.

The Padres and Red Sox have reportedly swapped Middlebrooks and Ryan Hanigan.

I really like this trade for the Sox. Middlebrooks is useless, while Hanigan is actually a good defensive catcher who will make a nice back up.

Makes no sense from SD's stance.

Middlebrooks: -1.4 WAR.
Solarte: 1.4 WAR


2.) I've not heard this.


3.) 20 Dec 2014 04:50:18
Team just confirmed it. I can't believe the Sox got anything greater than an old boot for WMB.


4.) 20 Dec 2014 04:55:07
Wait. you think the Red Sox should have received more?

In the last three years:
Hanigan- 2.9 WAR
Middlebrooks- -0.1 WAR.

I'm actually shocked they got anything for him.


5.) Natedub everyone is suprised. Who are you talking to?


6.) 20 Dec 2014 06:50:28
People who can look at stats should be shocked.

Middlebrooks has declined in each of his three seasons. In fact, he went from a 1.3 WAR guy in 2012 to a -1.4 WAR guy last year. in 3 years, he did a complete flip.

Getting a guy like Hanigan for Middlebrooks is a HUGE return.


7.) 20 Dec 2014 09:46:56
I think its a great trade. guy struggled in his sophomore slump, showed he can hit rookie year. now will make adjustments and still has a lot of upside with a talented roster around him. he's in a position to succeed now.


8.) Keep in mind that Middlebrooks is just in his mid 20s, plays a position of scarcity, and has power. He could rebound, fellas.


9.) 20 Dec 2014 14:24:14
^Natedub, I think you misunderstood me. I'm thrilled that we got Hanigan for Middlebrooks. I thought the mot we'd get would be the dreaded PTBNL. But we actually got a good catcher. I was actually surprised that the Spx got such a goo return.


10.) 20 Dec 2014 14:26:50
^yeah, but I'm sure not going to miss him LBF. Had power but absolutely no discipline at the plate. Power's nice, but it does you no good I you're whiffing at curveballs in the dirt. The Padres can have him.

Rays, Pads and Nats reportedly agreed to this massive 3-team deal:

Padres get: OF Wil Meyers, C Ryan Hanigan, RHP Gerardo Reyes, and LHP Luis Castillo

Rays get: OF Steven Souza, C Rene Rivera, RHP Burch Smith, 1B Jake Bauers, and LHP Trevor Ott

Nats get: RHP Joe Ross, SS Trea Turner(who will be traded as a PTBNL)

My head hurts.

My apologies, it's Travis Ott going to the Rays, not Trevor.


2.) 18 Dec 2014 05:10:21
My apologies, it's Travis Ott going to the Rays, not Trevor.


3.) What are the Rays doing?


4.) I have no idea what the Rays are doing, but expect their fans to disappear. Those bandwagoners will go back to rooting for the Yankees, Red Sox, Mets, and others.


5.) 18 Dec 2014 17:49:40
Regardless, the Nats made out like bandits.


6.) Rays seem like they are preparing to relocate. possible to montreal i've heard


7.) 20 Dec 2014 05:01:12
^^^Their lease on Tropicana goes through 2026. the legal issues that would stem from moving before then would be enormous.

So maybe they'll move in 12 years. but certainly not soon.


8.) Well, its being said that the owner if he can't get a deal to look for a location for a stadium. He would sell the team and the new owner could seek to relocate to another city. They don't have to stay till 2026


9.) 20 Dec 2014 15:54:34
They don't. but there are legal ramifications that would make even Robert Kardashian decline representing someone.

The Red Sox have allegedly traded RHP Allen Webster, RHP Rubby de la Rosa, and minor leaguer(not sure who) to the D-Backs for Wade Miley.

I think this is a decent deal for both sides. The D-Back get their young pitching while the Sox get a proven mid-rotation guy who still has several years left on his contract.

Highly Biased BoSox Fan

1.) Am I the only one who thinks the sox gave up to much for Miley? Am I putting to much stock into what De La Rosa could have been?


2.) 11 Dec 2014 14:15:02
I think so. Webster could have been a backend starter, but was starting to look like Jacob Turner. And while de la Rosa could have been a mid rotation arm, he has a LONG way to go before he can reach thy ceiling. I'd rather have the proven Miley than two enormous question marks like those two.


3.) 11 Dec 2014 15:44:44
Miley is a good back of the rotation piece. I think that was a good price tag for him.


4.) Miley is okay.

If the market for Hamels was at the Phillies asking price for Hamels, he'd be gone already. No one's budging, and no one will. The Phil's are either going to have to trade Hamels for what they can get(which appears to be more than fair) or let Hamels down with the sinking ship and gain nothing.

Hamels is great, but is no where near as valuable as you think. Is much ether have Seager, who looks to be an above average player at least, at the league minimum(and the still relatively cheap arb prices) for six years than Hamels at $20MM for four, and it's not really close.

If the phillies try to get more than Hamels, it's proof that their front office is delusional.

That's a pretty lousy trade for Beltre.
