PIT acquires: 3B Yangervis Solarte
SD acquires: SP Nick Kinhgam (AAA), 1B/ 3B Will Craig (A+), SS Stephen Alemais (A+)

Geez, that's quite the overpay.

2.) 14 Nov 2017 14:57:52
The basis of this deal is to provide the Pirates with a 3B or SS that can remain for years to come. Solarte is a one year guy with two team friendly options. The Pirates have two guys in their minor league system that can provide what Solarte brings for almost no expense. Giving up a Middle of the Order SP and or a couple more guys for a .250 hitting, limited power journeyman infielder makes little sense. The Pirates can do just as well for about the same price in the free agent market by signing Alcides Escobar or, even The Todd Father.

You sure you're a pirates fan?

CLE acquires: RP Juan Nicasio
PIT acquires: SP Shane Bieber (AA)

Indians, who to add to their pen get a solid big reliever arm
Pirates get a fast rising pitcher who's putting up solid numbers in the minors. Ranked #12 on CLE top 30.

STL acquires: 3B Maikel Franco
PHI acquires: SP Jack Flaherty (AAA), OF Magnerius Sierra (AA), RP Landon Beck (A+)

Cards get a 3B and much needed thump in their lineup. Philly gets the #98 prospect in baseball in Flaherty, their #8 in Sierra and a decent reliever prospect.


1.) 26 Jun 2017 03:11:20
St Louis won't be buying, and the Phillies won't be trading Franco.

2.) 26 Jun 2017 14:01:39
Jkolti, I agree STL won't be buying, but you’re wrong about Franco. PHI said he is “more than available” in trade talks.

3.) 26 Jun 2017 14:36:48
Philly has offered him in trade talks. This is an okay package for him; I think, for a power-hitting 3B in his mid 20s, it would take more. This is the type of trade the Cardinals would make for the future.

PIT acquires: OF Leonys Martin
SEA acquires: INF Alen Hanson

Pirates get a true OFer to help replace Marte, Mariners get a utilty infield who still has some upside.


1.) 27 Apr 2017 20:56:41
Martin didn't even pass through waivers. Giving up anything of value would be stupid.

2.) 30 Apr 2017 00:48:33
Lol I'll take that deal. Martin is hitting like .111.

3.) 30 Apr 2017 22:30:41
The Nats should give Seattle a call. Martin could help that team just by playing a strong CF. They don't need more offense.

PIT acquires: SP Jose Quintana
CHW acquires: SP Tyler Glasnow, SS Kevin Newman (AA), C Elias Diaz (AAA), SP Dario Agrazal (A)

Pirates get a solid LH #2 to slot between Cole, plus someone who eats 200 IP every year
WhiteSox get a top 10 overall prospect, a top 50 and 2 other top 30s in Pirates system.


1.) 04 Jan 2017 16:49:24
The value is pretty much there (I'd change Agrazal to a potential diamond in the rough type like Hearn), but I really don't think ChiSox make a deal without Meadows or Bell in the deal.

2.) 04 Jan 2017 21:32:09
Throw in Josh Bell and you got something there.

3.) 04 Jan 2017 22:43:17
White Sox tell Neal Huntington to go pound sand.

4.) 04 Jan 2017 23:05:17
Chi sox,
We're not getting Bell AND that package. Bell would replace glasnow and they would likely have to throw in another secondary piece to match the value. I. e. A Hayes or Keller.

5.) 05 Jan 2017 01:36:29
The problem for Pittsburgh is this: The Bucs want to deal McCutchen, and then replace him with Meadows, and use Bell at 1B.

Gio has been lights out this year. I imagine WSH would ask for another piece or two.

That trade isn't happening and they have no money to spend, plus a catcher already in Yan Gomes

Never really thought of him as a target for Nats but I do like that as a fit. However it will cost more to acquire him as he is good and under control for a few seasons.

"65-90 million" is quite the range. Way too much for Colby Rasmus and the Quintana trade is horrible.

Honestly not sure if you are being sarcastic or not, but I Hope you are.
