Yanks get Sonny Gray
A's get Mateo, Fowler and Kapreilian.

Hey Stat-you said the Yanks would have to give up 2 of Torres, Frazier, Adams, Florial and Sheffield. You couldn't have been more wrong. They didn't even give up 1. It's OK-say it-"I was Wrong" It's not that hard.

Drake-you said that a package headlined by Mateo or Sheffield would be easily outbid by other teams. WRONG! You can say it-"I was wrong" Also, you made fun of me for saying that Theo Epstein was "Desperate. " In Ken Rosenthal's July 29th post-he qoutes-"The parallels are not precise — Quintana, 28, is nearly a year older than Gray and under control for three-plus seasons as opposed to two-plus.

The Cubs also were more desperate for a controllable starter, lacking the young major-league ready pitching talent the Yankees can use to fill rotation openings next season. " He agrees with me.

So, in conclusion I was proven right and stat and drake-you were wrong. Are you going to be man enough to admit it? YOU WERE WRONG!

I was wrong about the Frazier/ Torres comment. I'll admit it.

But you realize Mateo, Fowler, Kaprelian is a better return than your suggestion of Mateo + Florial, right? Many, many scouts think the A's got a fantastic return. I thought there was a bigger market for Gray.


2.) 31 Jul 2017 22:50:29
You seem like the guy who loses every game, and the one time you win, you pretend you're better than everyone.


3.) 31 Jul 2017 23:16:29
Also, for what it's worth, Rosenthal (who "agrees" with you) along with many others believed it was necessary for Frazier or Torres to be included. Many were surprised by the return.

The market for Gray was weaker than believed. Oakland still got a great return considering.


4.) 31 Jul 2017 23:38:04
Hey Mitch you really don't need to brag about this, it makes you look bad and like a sore winner.


5.) 01 Aug 2017 00:11:27
Lol, the second I saw this trade go through I knew this post was coming.

Definitely was wrong. Cashman did really well. Package wasn't as bad as most are making it out to be but really thought they'd get a lot more.


6.) 01 Aug 2017 01:10:54
I took a lot of abuse from you two guys. I usually don't respond to many of the ridiculous posts. But you two went above and beyond. No hard feelings, Drake- gained respect for you. But-stat-3 more posts and still nasty. "Lost every game". Please provide me with anything that shows I lost every time. Ridiculous. Batman! -appreciate your opinions (especially when you agreed with me. ) But just last week- I posted to stat-wait till next week and we'll see who's right? He responded with nasty attack that stated I was stupid and I didn't know what I was talking about. He deserved my post.

I apologize if you think we are going too far. I need to work on my aggressiveness, so I sincerely apologize.

Please also consider, you've now posted TWO posts where you intentionally bring up others to make fun of them. Not comments, but posts.

I'll back off, but you need to realize, when you bring people up in posts, they have every right to fire back.

I was wrong on the trade. You were wrong in gloating and going on the offense. Let's all move on.


8.) 04 Aug 2017 02:06:20
Great. Happy to hear it. Will look forward to debating future trades as long it doesn't get nasty. BTW-I totally agree with your posts on Mets and Red Sox.


9.) 05 Aug 2017 17:39:57
Guys, we are all wrong most of the time on this site.

I'll add this; we cannot predict what many MLB execs are doing because they often don't know themselves.


10.) 05 Aug 2017 17:43:14
Everyone on this site is wrong almost all the time; the only time someone is not wrong is when they copy from an actual trade.

That, sadly, is truth.

Probably won't happen. What do you think.

Mets get B Gardner
Yanks get Granderson.

Mets get Gardner for 3 years @ reasonable price to play CF.

Yanks get Grandy lefty power for 1 year and move Frazier into LF in '18.

Money is similar 15- 12.5 mil.

Thoughts?

Pointless, Yankees are trying to cut payroll down by trading Gardner. This is counterproductive in those efforts. Also Gardner only has 2 years left on his contract.


2.) 20 Dec 2016 18:37:24
Batman-Gardner has club option in year 3. (12.5/ yr) As for patroll, Yanks don't expect to be under cap in '17. But they will in '18 when Grandy would be off books. That's why Holliday was so attractive-1 year commitment-like Grandy. That said- I don't expect this to happen.


3.) 20 Dec 2016 21:55:51
"I don't expect this to happen" you said it so obviously you did, and do.


4.) 21 Dec 2016 03:39:45
Your first three words say it all.

I was just looking back at some old posts. Chisox actually proposed atrade in which the Yankees trade
Frazier-Torres-Andujar-Kaprelian-Headley-Gardner-Fowler--Rutherford and Chad Green and receive Quintana-McCutcheon and DRob
Not only does it include 4 Top 100 prospects but it also includes 2 starters. They give up their starting 3B and top 3B prospect and don't get one back.
So, if anyone sees him post-don't waste your time. He is just another delusional White Sox fan.

^^^This guy uses two months of data to support his claims. He also doesn't understand the stats he throws out.

Please also ignore him.


2.) 30 Jun 2017 20:50:55
That proposal was essentially a joke when everyone thought Q's value was through the roof. Let's see your proposals, Mitch. It's easy to look back at old posts and critique them based on how they are performing now. lol I'm delusional? But you're reading my posts from like last fall.

Learn how to read Drake-I said WHEN (I need to emphasize) we were discussing Q trade in WINTER-Eloy and Cease were #23 and #98. Again would you have traded Q for that package, at that time? If you're honest, no! At that time, you asked for 3 Top 100 prospects-which they did not get. Who did you ask for from the Yanks for Q? Remind me please. How is Verlander a rental? Lester is only starter signed for 2018. That's why they had to make move. Needed pitchers for '18. Do you understand?

Drake-BTW- when we were discussing QA trades over winter, Eloy J and Cease were ranked #23 and #98 prospects. You can honestly tell us that you would have taken those 2 plus 2 lesser prospects for Quintana over the winter. Remember-everyone reading this will see if you are full of it or not. You wanted much more than that. I think it was Torres, Frazier and Sheefield (#15,17,73). Truth?

Drake- Chisox rec'd 2 top 100 prospects for Q. You were asking for at least 3 from Yanks. WRONG! They didn't get 3. Astros, Dodgers, Pirates, Yanks and Braves all wouldn't meet asking price-but YOU know better than them. Cubs weren't even discussed in Q offseason trade talks. Poor performance dictated the trade. Cubs are a win-now team with age and free agents all through rotation. Is that too difficult for you to understand? Not every prospect turns into Bryant, but it is called ASSET MANAGEMENT. LOOK IT UP. Stat-Mark Feinsand-who covers Yanks-said Cashman claims Adams is untouchable. That is EXACTLY what I said. I consider opinions from smart baseball people. You simply state your own misguided opinion. Again-Yanks will NOT give up Adams along with Florial and Mateo to A's. That is my statement. Let's all laugh and look at Drake's past proposals for Quintana. Funnier than Seinfeld!
