Jays D-Backs trade

Jays get Greinke

D-Backs get Reid-foley, maile

Jays take on all of Greinkes salary which they can afford while their stars are developing, get an anchor for the rotation.

D-Backs free up a ton of cap space, get a good defensive catcher, which they need and want, and a good, young, if not outstanding prospect.

Jays are rebuilding. And they won't be competing with the Yankees, Sox and Rays for at least 3 years in all likelyhood. Why would they want Greinke? Reid-foley will be a #4 or 5 starter for the Jays probably next year.

Besides, the Jays rotation is not half bad this year anyway if they can stay healthy. Sanchez, Stroman, shoemaker, Buchholz and watch out for Borucki, I think he's going to be a good one.

The D'Backs have a bunch of catchers already, including Carson Kelly, who they just got this offseason.

Minnow, it’d be an okay rotation if they could strike batters out.

Stroman and Sanchez can strike guys out but really they are ground ball pitchers. Shoemaker and Buchholz hopefully can be inning eaters. We are not expecting too much this year. Young guys, Guerrero, bichette, gurriel, Alford, Tellez, and Jansen are who we hope to be watching this year.

This was a tongue in cheek comment, but I'll oblige:

Marcus Stroman has never had a K/ 9 over 7.65 for a whole season. Since 2014, he's 110th among SP for strikeout rates.

Sanchez is much of the same. Career 7.05 K/ 9.

Those are not rates you want out of your best pitchers, and it requires a lot of defense to bail him out. It'll also lead to a lot of variability season by season.

That rotation has some recognizable names, but they'll need a lot from younger pitchers if you want something to be excited about.

Lets say Stroman and sanchez pitch 180+ innings each. What do you think their stats will be?

7.) 13 Mar 2019 03:00:48
For both, I took the median K/ 9 projection from the various Fangraphs projections.

For Stroman, that equals 139 strikeouts over 180 innings (6.93 K/ 9)

For Sanchez, I have 143 strikeouts over 180 IP (7.18 K/ 9)

That's not exactly elite, or really all that great.

Yankees-Jays trade

Yankees: tulowitzki
Jays: ellsbury

Yankees need playing time for all their good outfielders. Ellsbury takes up space

Jays need leadership but have a ton of infield depth. Basically a salary swap.

2007 called, they want their trade back.

2.) 12 Oct 2018 02:10:11
But is it a good or bad trade.

3.) 12 Oct 2018 06:15:45
Bad. It literally serves neither team.

4.) 12 Oct 2018 13:54:50
This is terrible, makes no sense for either team.
