No chance at it happening but WOW is that a talented team, especially the pitching staff. Does this seem reasonable? Thoughts?


1.) 19 Dec 2016 23:14:28
"65-90 million" is quite the range. Way too much for Colby Rasmus and the Quintana trade is horrible.

2.) 20 Dec 2016 01:30:00
I agree with PiratesFan. That Quintana trade is a joke. Also there is no way that Avi Garcia is on a team that anyone can call "talented".

3.) 20 Dec 2016 02:48:37
I was trying to buy in until I saw the Quintana trade. You lost me there, and you'll lose a bunch there. I'm skeptical of your other trades, but not enough to bash. But why would the Sox sign Rasmus and Rajai? Explain. That makes no sense at all.

4.) 21 Dec 2016 01:38:15
You think Rasmus will get 17.5 miles a year? I don't!



09 Dec 2016 22:37:35
Nats Get: Colome

Rays Get: Austin Voth, AJ Cole.


1.) 10 Dec 2016 15:26:59
Rays would want Victor Robles.

2.) 10 Dec 2016 20:19:35
RedSoxGuy, you want it to be Robles for Colome strait up?

3.) 10 Dec 2016 20:20:56
And they really need Robles with a young, talented outfield of Kiermaier, Souza jr, and Mahtook?

4.) 10 Dec 2016 21:41:17
Souza is a talented outfielder? He's a below average defender who should be DHing.

5.) 11 Dec 2016 03:12:28
I think Robles for Colome is a start, but may need tweaking.



07 Dec 2016 23:03:34
At 2018 Trade Deadline if white sox are in playoff picture:


CWS: Harper

WSH: Moncada, Kopech, Giolito, Lopez, Quintana (if he's still with CWS)


1.) 08 Dec 2016 02:24:43
Please tell me this is a joke.

2.) 08 Dec 2016 03:13:11
Doubt the White Sox make that move.

3.) 08 Dec 2016 03:18:38
1. White Sox likely won't be in playoff picture.
2. The White Sox didn't deal Sale and Eaton just to give their future away for one guy.

4.) 08 Dec 2016 04:26:35
Yeah no, does anyone think is outrageous this guy is asking for 400 million, besides his MVP year which he was crazy good, he's just been good, not deserving of what he asks for. For me, the best player on that team for years to come it Trea Turner.

5.) 08 Dec 2016 12:46:01
Harper is so overrated it's not funny anymore. Imo he's not even a top 25 player. One good season and he wants hundreds of millions of dollars, at this point he's basically a glorified Jason Heyward. Heyward had one good year, he was praised as being the next big thing and look what he's done. Basically nothing except defense.



01 Dec 2016 18:46:40

Nats Get: Andrew McCutchen

Pirates get: Joe Ross, Erick Fedde, Victor Robles, Andrew Stevenson, Carter Kieboom.


1.) 01 Dec 2016 23:50:48
Why does everybody think Cutch will get massive returns? There is a reason they want to trade him people.

2.) 02 Dec 2016 19:16:14
He was arguably the best player in the game for the last 5 seasons before he had an average year. He will get a significant return, period.



16 Nov 2016 00:22:08

Braves Get: Chris Sale

White Sox Get: Ender Inciarte/ Mallex Smith, Sean Newcomb, Aaron Blair, Ozzie Albies, Travis Demeritte, Joey Wentz.


1.) 16 Nov 2016 04:56:54
I feel like no matter how many times it's said people still refuse to accept it. SALE WILL NOT BE TRADED. This is just as bad as the Stanton trade rumors a couple years ago. I'll tell you what will happen, the White Sox will think they'll be able to contend every year while Sale is under contract so they'll try to contend and win and before they know it he'll be long gone and they'll have almost no farm system, and no ace to trade for prospects.

2.) 16 Nov 2016 11:50:27
Sale could be moved, if the White Sox are overwhelmed. I don't get why some of you don't understand that.

This package would get the Sox brass salivating.

3.) 16 Nov 2016 21:41:47
Because 99.999999% of the sale trades on here suck! I forget who said it on MLB Tonight but they said if they Braves got Sale they couldn't stop there, theyd probably have to get a top catcher, Turner, and a couple other players. The Braves need to win approximately 20 more games to make playoffs, Sale doesn't do that, so why waste prospects, and a third of Sales contract just to draw fans?

4.) 16 Nov 2016 22:23:25
Sale Turner Wieters Colon Dickey makes them fifteen games better easily.

5.) 17 Nov 2016 01:41:30
Atlanta is moving to a new stadium this year. They don't have to make the playoffs, but they need to contend and show improvement.

Here's where I think some of the FA's will end up. Feel free to reply with your own opinions.

Yoenis Cespedes: Mets
Ryan Howard: Retirement
Matt Weiters: Nats (only is Ramos leaves)
Carlos Beltran: No Clue
Jose Bautista: Blue Jays
Dexter Fowler: O's/ Giants/ Cubs
Hisashi Iwakuma: Mariners
Rich Hill: Marlins/ Cardinals
Wilson Ramos: Nats
Aroldis Chapman: Yankees/ Giants
Kenly Jansen: Dodgers/ Giants
Mark Melancon: Giants
Neil Walker: Mets
Edwin Encarnacion: Indians/ Red Sox
Mark Trumbo: Red Sox/ O's
Kendrys Morales: Royals
Brandon Moss: Cardinals
Ian Desmond: Rangers/ O's
Joaquin Benoit: Nats/ Dodgers
Bartolo Colon: Mets
Josh Reddick: Giants
Justin Turner: Giants/ Dodgers.


1.) 09 Nov 2016 01:56:38
I have a question why are the giants next to the best 3 closers in the market. No team has the money to buy 2. And there are many teams out there. I can see them maybe trading or signing for another ok bullpen piece.

2.) 09 Nov 2016 03:40:22
I think he's shotgunning, which is a perfectly good tactic for some prediction contest, it's the lazy way out for something like this.

3.) 09 Nov 2016 21:39:58
I'm not saying they should sign all 3. I'm saying 1 of those 3 is their #1 requirement.



11 Oct 2016 20:31:07
What to you guys think is a reasonable contract for Rich Hill?

Ex (not going to happen) : Wahington- 3 years, 15 million.


1.) 11 Oct 2016 20:53:36
Only $5M a year? Have you not been paying attention to player contracts as of late?

2.) 11 Oct 2016 21:13:12
I have, but he is almost 38.

3.) 11 Oct 2016 21:14:47
My bad, almost 37. Also, I just read his current contract, make that 3 years for 20-25 million dollars. Do you think that is better, Jerk?

4.) 12 Oct 2016 03:36:49
3 years 40-50 mil.

5.) 12 Oct 2016 04:02:16
John Lackey got 3/ 51 as a 37-year-old, and that was just last year. I don't know if Hill gets 17M a year, but certainly well above 10M AAV. I'm guessing 3/ 45 or 2/ 33.

6.) 12 Oct 2016 05:22:47
Hill will get much more than Lackey is getting per year right now in my opinion. Some team will be desperate and sign him.

7.) 13 Oct 2016 04:11:39
I agree with the 3/ 45mil.

As a Nats fan, this is not something they want to do. If anything, they will go after a proven closer like Robertson.

Last thing everyone needs to see is the ChiSox getting a ton more prospects.
