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.

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.

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.

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.

NYY acquires: RP Antonio Bastardo
PIT acquires: OF Mason Williams

Yankees get another lefty in the pen, (which they are still supposedly in the hunt for) on a one-year contract. Pirates get a 4th OFer which they need.


1.) 12 Dec 2016 15:39:47
While I don't mind giving up Williams because our outfield depth, Bastardo looked horrible with the Mets. Going to the AL East= Disaster. Rather try Shreve again. I would try for Hand from SD.

2.) 12 Dec 2016 16:58:39
Not bad.

3.) 13 Dec 2016 23:46:08
Look at How bad liriano was for the Pirates. He was then traded to a much heavier hiting division and actually did very well. To say Bastardo will be worse in the AL East is not accurate.



01 Dec 2016 20:34:52
WSH acquires: CF Andrew Mccutchen
PIT acquires: SP Joe Ross, OF Michael Taylor, OF Victor Robles (A+)


1.) 01 Dec 2016 21:01:24
Nationals wouldn't do that deal.

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.
