The Cubs need a jolt to break out of the post World Series doldrums. This does it.

Chicago sends OF Kyle Schwarber to the AL where he belongs; Schwarber goes to Tampa Bay, where he slots into the OF/DH/1B mix with Morrison, Rasmus, Dickerson and Souza. LoMo and Rasmus are free agents at the end of the year.

The Rays send Jake Odorizzi and RHP prospect Jacob Faria to Chicago. Odorizzi has two options remaining, so he's a cheap and controllable upgrade to a Cubs' rotation that needs a little youth. Faria could be ready soon.

Chicago has Heyward, Happ, Zobrist, Almora and Jay in the OF, so they'll be fine.

After trading Cueto, San Francisco let's Matt Cain walk. The two moves save the Giants some $42 million for next season.

San Fran then sends INF/OF Eduardo Nunez to Boston. He helps shore up 3B for the Sox.

Boston sends the Giants 3B prospect Bobby Dalbec and LHP Jhonathan Diaz.

1.) 09 Jun 2017 17:02:29
I'm not moving Dalbec for Nunez. Nunez is an ok player, but a lot of scouts are saying that they don't think Devers will be sticking at 3rd, and will likely move to 1st. I'd like to keep Dalbec around for that. I'd put Chavis into the deal instead.



04 Jun 2017 23:44:13
San Francisco punts on the season soon and will look to the future.

Giants trade Johnny Cueto to Houston, which needs reinforcements for its playoff run. Cueto joins a rotaton led by Keuchel and McCullars, a nice playoff trifecta.

Astros send OF Derek Fisher, RHP Forrest Whitley and OF Daz Cameron, three of its top 10 prospects, to San Fran.

The Brewers are unexpectedly contending this year, but have some obvious needs to continue to do so.

Milwaukee deals OF Lewis Brinson, 3B Lucas Erceg, and OF Brett Phillips to Tampa Bay for SP Jake Odorizzi. He moves to the top of the rotation for the Brew Crew, while Tampa gets some young, controllable offensive talent.

The Brewers then send RHPs Lewis Ortiz and Phil Bickford, along with SP Wily Peralta, to KC for closer Kelvin Herrera.

1.) 04 Jun 2017 03:42:59
The Brewers spent a lot of energy acquiring top prospects. I can't imagine they give them all away just for a shot at contending in 2017.

If they make the playoffs with the roster they have, great. If not, well, they didn't expect too. I actually expect them to shop guys like Braun still.

2.) 04 Jun 2017 17:44:54
I mostly agree, book. This doesn't get into a couple of their top prospects, Corey Ray and Josh Hader, not their young OFs, Broxton and Santana.

I think they try to deal Braun over the next year or so for more young guys. I am somewhat surprised the Dodgers didn't bite already.

3.) 05 Jun 2017 06:15:25
Brinson is by far their most valuable prospect, in my opinion, as well as many scouts I've read. I can't see them being short-sighted and giving him up.

KC is spiraling downward, while Washington has World Series plans.

Royals send CF Lorenzo Cain, a free agent-to-be, and closer Kelvin Herrera to D.C. Cain fills in for the injured Adam Eaton this summer and fall, while Herrera settles the Nats' bullpen.

KC receives a jolt to the farm system in RHP Erick Fedde, OF Andrew Stevenson, and 3B Drew Ward, three of the Nationals' top 12 prospects.

1.) 26 May 2017 02:29:21
I like!

2.) 26 May 2017 13:42:39
I think Washington could send a little more to KC, but overall, I like it.

Both teams have holes and are mired in mediocrity, so they make a deal.

Tigers send OF J.D. Martinez and 3B Nick Castellanos to St. Louis. Cardinals lack a feared bat in the lineup, and J.D. changes that. He moves into RF, Castellanos goes to 3B, and the Cards hope to move forward. Martinez is a free agent, and it gives the Cards the option to sign him or let him go. Gyorko moves to the super sub role.

St. Louis sends OF Randall Grichuk, 3B Jhonny Peralta, and former closer Trevor Rosenthal to Detroit. Peralta fills in at 3B for his old team, Rosenthal joins the pen, and Grichuk tries his hand in the Detroit OF.

ESPN receives crazysull.

MLB-trade-rumors receives a crazy person to be named later.

1.) That seems to be fair.

2.) 06 Mar 2015 04:06:55
ESPN would want more in return.

3.) Another person ESPN could have is Clark_K since he post just as ridiculous things as Sull.

I believe the Scherzer signing could trigger another move or two for Washington. How about this one?

The Nationals send Jordan Zimmermann to Boston for Henry Owens and Allen Craig.

This gives the Reds Sox the ace they need atop the rotation, and gives the Nats a young arm in case Fister isn't brought back, plus a solid outfield/first base option for the injured Jayson Werth and injury-prone Ryan Zimmerman.

Thumbs up to the Baseball Winter Meetings. The Dodgers and Marlins, in particular, have made this year's event the best in years!

1.) Yes those two teams have made it interesting, oh and don't forget about the Red Sox. I just have to wonder one thing. What the hell are the Yankees doing. I know your a Red Sox fan. But the Yankees just seem to be content with doing very little especially after missing the playoffs for 2 straight years. I just don't get it. Are they planning to sign Scherzer. Signing internation FAs Kang and Maeda? Its just so baffling.

2.) 12 Dec 2014 08:35:40
The Red Sox really spiced things up with that Wade Miley trade. oh, and that Justin Masterson signing. lol.

Ten Good Players That Will Likely Be Traded:

1. Matt Kemp
2. Justin Upton
3. Carlos Gonzalez
4. Cole Hamels
5. Howie Kendrick
6. Yoenis Cespedes
7. Greg Holland
8. Matt Latos
9. Matt Wieters
10. Starlin Castro

Line up a trade partner and scenario for each.

1.) I understand that Holland is going to start getting expensive, but I still think the Royals have to keep him.

2.) Kemp - Seattle for Roenis Elias and Chris Taylor
Upton - could be Cincy for Latos, but doubt the Reds would add to payroll
CarGo - nowhere, the Rockies are too bullheaded to make this needed trade
Hamels - Red Sox for Mookie Betts and Yoenis Cespedes (and don't give the standard line that they will not trade Betts. They are that desperate for starting pitching)
Kendrick - don't think he will be traded
Cespedes - see Hamels trade
Holland - not traded
Latos - would rather trade Leake and extend Latos
Wieters - not traded until he proves healthy
Castro - Dodgers (they seems to like lazy/moody shortstops)

3.) Kemp to CIN w/ cash for Mat Latos

Upton to SEA w/ Evan Gattis for Hultzen, Walker, Peterson

Gonzalez = to injury prone to garner any good interest

Hamels to BOS for Cespedes and Edwin Escobar

Kendrick to TOR for Mitch Nay, Roberto Osuna, and AJ Jimenez

Castro to NYY for Luis Severino and Gary Sanchez

My predictions/likely landing spots for these guys:

Kemp- I think he'll stay in LA. LA won't want to eat that much salary being that they are so far over the luxury cap. but should he move, Texas is one team that comes to mind immediately.

Upton- No one's giving the Braves what they want for a guy they can wait to sign next winter. The White Sox might get desperate, but I doubt it.

CarGo- Reds, Rangers, Mets are just three teams.

Hamels- I think San Diego will go all in on him. he's from SD and they know he'd be a hit there. If not SD, most likely Boston.

Kendrick- Will stay in LA and sign an extension. As long as Scioscia is there, Kendrick will be the starting 2B.

Cespedes- Mariners would probably be desperate enough to trade for him. but I think his case is just like Upton's.

Holland- There's probably 25 teams who would see Holland as an upgrade and give a great package for him.

Latos- Numerous teams would take him, minus San Francisco.

Wieters- Not going anywhere. For one, his recent surgery will require some proof before teams trade for him, but if he's ready, Orioles will re-sign him.

Castro- Mets, Yankees, White Sox, Astros are all teams that would likely try and make a trade for him.

In reality, probably 2 of these guys will ever be traded.

Cashman probably wouldn't be fired, but he should be, if this trade were made.

Tigers' prospects are like Jets' QBs - you're going to get disappointed.

Yanks won't pay that for Vargas, who is basically a turd who is over-performing.

It's not a coincidence that the Diamondbacks' pitching is much better this year with no-name catchers.

It's also no coincidence that the Orioles' starting pitchers (other than Dylan Bundy) are struggling. Tillman, Gausman and Ubaldo have been awful.
