Astros

I know this won't happen, BUT if I were the GM of Houston I'd be looking for way to keep the success long-term. I think this team still wins 100 games and the West while also restocking the farm and preparing for the loss of their next two 1st and 2nd round picks.



HOU- Nick Senzel, Tyler Stephenson, Lyon Richardson
CIN- Carlos Correa

Correa seems to be one of the young players HOU is considering moving. With Diaz playing well behind him I could see him being shipped out now. Cincy needs a SS and now has Senzel left without a position. He can always be a UT, but they also seem interested in acquiring a top tier SS.



HOU- Steven Matz, Andres Giminez, Franklyn Kilome
NYM- George Springer

The Mets have not been quiet about wanting to add a true CF. Springer is coming off a career year and plays solid defense. The Astros have Senzel (see above trade) who can replace Springer in the lineup and Matz will add a solid LH pitcher to the bottom of the rotation. The Mets have a deep set of pitchers to deal from.


HOU- Danny Diaz
BOS- Josh Reddick

If Boston trades Mookie, Reddick becomes a solid 1 year option to replace him. Diaz is an upside prospect to take a shot on.

I doubt many will go running to bail the Astros or Red Sox out at this point. The Astros won't get anywhere near market price for any of their guys.


2.) 16 Jan 2020 16:44:49
I would disagree. They have All-Star players they are moving. They're not trying to dump a Pujols contract. There is still a market for these guy, and even if they lose a slight bit of leverage, they will still get a solid return.


3.) 16 Jan 2020 17:44:17
I repeat: no one is going to bail out the Astros. Yes, they have players that teams would (and should) want. But no one is going to pay premiums for those players. Not now.

Teams are livid regarding the cheating scandal, and I'd imagine a lot of front office execs feel Houston got off easy. They won't get anything close to the returns you're giving them. The deals above are far too rich.


4.) 16 Jan 2020 17:45:22
Why would LA do this? With no guarantee that Betts will sign an extension, they aren't giving up Adell for a rental.


5.) 17 Jan 2020 13:11:40
I repeat: These players have a ton of value and do not carry bad contracts. They are not "bailing" Houston out. If a team feel they're making their roster better by making a trade they would do it. They would not stop because they "think" they might be helping the Astros.


6.) 17 Jan 2020 14:54:37
Bailing them out would be paying market value for the players. Again, none of the teams wouldn't go out and trade for, say, Carlos Correa, but the Astros won't have any of the leverage in trade discussions. They would be massively underselling their players.

In other words, they likely won't get someone like Nick Senzel for Correa. Giving them Senzel (and Stephenson FWIW) would be bailing them out. They *might* get Tyler Stephenson for Correa straight up. But even that might be too rich at this point.

Teams are obviously upset. Why would ANY of them pay full price (or higher) to give Houston anything of value at this point?


7.) 17 Jan 2020 14:58:17
To put it more simply (since that's what you need at this point) : if the Giants asked for Carlos Correa, for example, and the price in 2019 was Joey Bart and Heliot Ramos, the new price is probably closer to Heliot Ramos and Luis Matos.

It's still a decent return, but it's nowhere close to what they could get had they not cheated.

Giving them Bart + Ramos would be bailing them out.


8.) 18 Jan 2020 16:51:42
thestatbook, I see your point, and also register that it's just an example.

I do think that the Astros would get a really good return on Correa, but I also agree, the price dropped quite a bit since this scandal.


9.) 20 Jan 2020 20:23:13
thestatbook. I think you really overestimate your knowledge on this situation. If you for one second think Stephenson would be "too rich" for Correa you should quit talking baseball. We use this site to throw out ideas we think would be interesting. Sure, it may not be perfect and no one will ever guess the correct deals, but to think a top 5 SS (regardless of the perception of the team) wouldn't net a top 50 prospect is ludicrous. I'd bet money if Correa got traded it would be a lot closer to my proposal than yours.


10.) 21 Jan 2020 04:22:35
I think you underestimate how teams feel about the Astros. No one is going to run out there and give them anything of value for their players.

If they trade Carlos Correa, we would basically all agree they gave him away. I don't know if the Reds, or any team, would even consider a top 100 prospect at this point for any player. They are that angry at how easy the Astros got off for this scandal.

The Astros would be baseball's Dollar General if they started moving players.

BOS- Jo Adell, Jeremiah Jackson and Jose Soriano
LAA- Mookie Betts


Mookie is as good as gone with the recent issues in BOS. They will need to restock the farm and he is the obvious choice to bring back talent. LA is going all-in not to waste Trout's prime years. With a 2-3-4-5 of Betts/Trout/Rendon/Upton, this team would be very tough to beat.

we found the Cubs fan, everyone.


2.) 19 Mar 2019 01:55:32
The Cubs winning the division by 16 games is the most ridiculous thing I've seen on this site, perhaps ever.


3.) 20 Mar 2019 15:10:38
1, not a Cubs fan.
2, in the past six seasons, at least one team has won their division by 12 games or more.
3, the Cubs now have Hamels and Darvish (combined for 20 starts for CHC last season) replacing Chatwood and Montgomery (4.75 ERA combined last season) .
4, They get Bryant back (missed 60 games last season) .
5, They're one of the deepest teams in the league to offset injuries.

They may not win by 16, but they will win 100 games and easily win the division.


4.) 20 Mar 2019 15:31:57
The NL Central is probably the best division in baseball. The Cardinals got better. The Reds got better. The Brewers are really damn good. To suggest the Cubs, who didn't even win the division last year suddenly take an improved division by 16 games is completely laughable.

You also have the Brewers losing 12 more games from 2018. Did you think last season was a total fluke?

As far as "deepest team". I'm confused by that suggestion. They have literally zero farm system. Their bullpen is atrocious. Their bench depth isn't what it was praised to be. And several of their "stars" aren't that good (Zobrist, Schwarber, Heyward, Happ) .

They might win the division. It will, by no means be "easily".


5.) 21 Mar 2019 16:23:44
Flawed logic, you completely ignore the Brewers won the division last year and yes it was because of the one game playoff. But they have improved from last year, the Cardinals have gotten better, and the Reds have gotten better, and the Pirates are the Pirates, so winning the division by 16 games and winning 100 games in that division won't happen.


6.) 01 Oct 2019 18:14:00
That Cubs prediction. Yikes.


 

 

29 Jan 2019 16:00:33
I think Machado and/or Harper should sign a contract with an opt-out after 1 year. The market just isn't there this year. I don't see them chancing it and signing a 1 year deal, but i think they will require an opt-out after year one to give them a chance to enter next year (age 27) to see if the market is better.

Insider27

1.) 31 Jan 2019 00:29:20
Both Arrieta and Hosmer signed very generous deals late into the winter. Arrieta didn't even sign until March 12th last year.

There is zero reason for either of those guys to panic yet. They'll get paid.


2.) 31 Jan 2019 15:00:21
Although i agree they shouldn't panic, my comment was more towards what i think would be best for them. Outside of Philly and Chicago (AL) there doesn't seem to be anyone willing to give Machado anywhere near what he is wanting. As for Harper, i think the only teams in are Philly and Washington. Unless another team comes from nowhere (which is very possible) and offers a crazy deal, then i could easily see them pushing for an opt-out after year one to at least give them an option.


3.) 20 Mar 2019 15:33:43
23 years, $630 million combined.

The market seemed to work out just fine for them.

White Sox 2020

The Farm and available money the Sox have is exciting for 2020. They will not compete in 2019, but if they can sign 1/2 good FA this year, then sign 1/2 more next year this team has a legit shot to make a very fast turnaround.

to poke some holes in this, I also know this is hypothetical, but for first base why not just resign Jose Abreu? Personally I don't see them getting Machado or Harper, but I could be wrong. Garret Cole huh, good luck outbidding the Yankees who have wanted him since they drafted him in 2008 and tried trading for him last offseason. I also want to point out that the biggest contract they every signed a free agent to was Abreu for 68 million. They say they have all this money, but they never use it.

Sorry Thestatbook, you assumed wrong. I just got back from Las Vegas so you might have to search for a different Troll. As for your post, I actually agree with you. I don't see why Bloom is taking so much heat for the return. Price had an awful contract and Betts made it clear he wanted to test FA. To grab two solid guys in Verdugo and Downs, they now can use their flexibility to sign Devers and Benetendi to long term deals.
