Marlins and Rays Trade
To Miami
P, Jake Odorizzi
P, Jacob Faria
OF, Nick Franklin

To Tampa Bay
OF, Christian Yelich
C/ 1B, Tomas Telis

The Marlins are in desperate need of SP and the Rays are in need of an impact bat.
Odorizzi is a solid #2-#3 starter and is young and controllable. Yelich is the kind of hitter the Rays need, he puts up solid batting averages and drives in runs. Miami also gets a potential #4 starter in Faria and a decent hitting outfielder in Franklin, and Tampa gets a solid young hitter who can catch and play 1B. This can obviously be tweaked but the base is decent IMO. I know Yelich is the real deal but the pitching market is thin and teams will need to give up a lot.

Replace Yelich with Marcell Ozuna and we can talk.

2.) 24 Nov 2016 05:23:04
yelich is better than ozuna and younger.

3.) 24 Nov 2016 07:56:49
Yelich will not move. Especially after last season.

4.) 24 Nov 2016 13:50:29
That is my point. Miami would be willing to deal Ozuna.

Rays said they'd have to be blown away for an Archer trade. So I'll give one a try.

To Pittsburgh
Chris Archer
Curt Casali

To Tampa Bay
Josh Bell
Elias Diaz
Nick Kingham
Austin Meadows

It would suck to lose Bell, but think about it, the outfield is stacked, so Meadows would be stuck. This deal would leave Pittsburgh with Taillon and Glasnow, so Kingham isn't the biggest blow, finally Diaz is blocked behind Cervelli. Archer is an ace, and even though he's having a rough season, he's got a friendly contract and will surely bounce back next year. Pirates would probably say no, but the price would be high for Arch.


1.) 24 Jul 2016 15:26:38
I say keep medows include martens and it's done.

2.) 24 Jul 2016 17:37:47
Are you referring to Starling Marte? If so, no way the Pirates include him. He's arguably been their best player this season.

Just sorta throwing this out here. Astros need a backup catcher, and could use a first baseman if Reed isn't big league ready. Rays have depth at both positions and could deal James Loney and Rene Rivera.

To Houston
1B, James Loney
C, Rene Rivera

To Tampa
OF, Andrew Aplin
RHP, Josh Fields

Astros have a crowded outfield, and still have a solid bullpen without Fields with Harris, Giles, Sipp. Rays need help in the bullpen and Aplin profiles best as a fourth outfielder. Loney has posted solid batting averages and is a above average defender at 1B and is a FA at the end of the year. Rivera can backup Castro.


1.) 22 Mar 2016 00:36:34
I don't hate this, but I think the Astros should get a guy that is going to be gone in a year or two if they acquire a 1B. To me, a guy such as Edwin Encarnacion makes a lot of sense. I doubt the Jays sign both him and Joey Bats, and the Astros could offer young pitching and other talent for a year of EE.

2.) 22 Mar 2016 12:11:05
I think the Astros would ask for much more to give up Josh Fields. He is prettt good.



07 Jan 2016 02:10:38
I saw a trade like this a while back and was wondering if it was still a good move?

To Miami
RHP, Jacob Faria (#20 ranked prospect)
RHP, Taylor Guerrieri (#6 ranked prospect)
RHP, Cameron Varga (#21 ranked prospect)
OF, Steven Souza
1B, James Loney

LHP, Tim Berry
1B, Justin Bour
OF, Marcell Ozuna.


1.) 07 Jan 2016 04:17:09
Wow that's way to much going to Miami.

2.) 07 Jan 2016 04:27:53
Ozuna hit 80+ RBI's in 2014 with 20+ HR.
Bour hit 70+ RBI's in 2015 with 20+ HR.

Both guys can seriously hit and the Rays offense would improve dramatically. Ozuna's coming off a down year but is still only 25. Ya it's a lot to Miami but the Rays run production would be huge considering they have the best rotation in the AL East.

3.) 07 Jan 2016 04:29:43
Also this is exactly what Miami would be looking for, I read an article on MLB. com that they want MLB ready players and prospects. The Marlins would be getting three young pitchers to improve their farm system.

4.) 07 Jan 2016 05:19:18
What r u talking about Bryant that is not even close to enough.

5.) 07 Jan 2016 09:10:47
Waaaay too much from Rays side. I'd rather have Souza over Ozuna and Bour alone. Guererri is a borderline top 100 prospect and Faria is a top 10 prospect organizationally (outdated prospect list I assume your using) . Rays already have a couple very good 1B prospects a year or so from the majors in Bauer's and Gillespie, not to mention Shaffer already at the major league level with 20+ hr power right now. If they trade Loney, they would likely want a stop gap 1B/ DH type like Alvarez or Pearce.

6.) 07 Jan 2016 17:40:52
You'd rather have Steven Souza over Marcell Ozuna. I'm pretty sure you might be the only person I've ever heard, or likely will ever hear, say that. Congratulations.



27 Dec 2015 16:48:39

OF, Steven Souza

C, Andrew Susac.


1.) 27 Dec 2015 17:19:13
Susac could bring back more.

2.) 27 Dec 2015 23:57:13
Sousa strikes out too much, and S. F. would say no.

3.) 28 Dec 2015 00:36:22
I think souza is worth more than susac - one is proven, then other is not.

Was wondering what value a healthy Alex Cobb has? He's guy who's starting to get up there in age (I think he's 28), and he's only going to get more expensive for a team like the Rays. Does he have the value that can garner a #1 prospect in a teams organization? Or like a #5 or #6 prospect? Just curious.


1.) 27 Nov 2015 23:41:44
A healthy Cobb is probably a 3 starter maybe a 2 depending on the rotation, prospect rankings don't matter, as a teams 12 prospect could be another's 1 or a teams one could be a bust and a guy that's not in the teams top 30 HoF. I can't see Tampa getting more than 2 prospects for him maybe a top 100 and another.



24 Nov 2015 13:37:37
Was coming up with a few lower level signings the Rays could make this offseason. Everyone knows they have a low budget so here's a few free agents that could help them.

Kelly Johnson, UTL
2 years, 4 - 4.5 M

Marlon Byrd, OF
1 year, 4.5 M

Tony Sipp, LHP
3 years, 12M

Fernando Rodney, RHP
1 year, 800K

I think Johnson could be a good bat and a versatile defender, Byrd a decent hitter, Sipp is an underrated reliever on the market and if McGee gets traded he's a strong lefty option. Finally, Rodney, I think he's definatly gotten worse in the last year or so, but if there's any team that can help a pitcher get back on track it's the Rays. Let's not forget Fernando pitched his best in a Rays uniform. I think it's a low risk signing and if he doesn't work out he's only paid 800K.

Let me know what you think.


1.) 24 Nov 2015 13:50:49
BTW the Johnson signing would be an average salary of 4 or 4.5. And the Sipp signing would be an average salary of 4M per year.

2.) 25 Nov 2015 07:31:36
I just can't see Houston letting Sipp get away!

3.) 26 Nov 2015 01:59:22
I like the Byrd signing I think he would really help their offense.



22 Jun 2015 02:12:38
Was wondering what it would take to get Andrelton Simmons in Tampa? I'm guessing you would have to start with top prospect Daniel Robertson and Drew Smyly (once he returns from DL). Idk but the Rays need a long term shortstop and have a welth of pitching in the minors. Idk let me know, I'm just sorta spit balling.


1.) 22 Jun 2015 19:52:15
Braves aren't trading everyone. Simmons, Teheran, and Freeman are who the Braves are building around.

2.) 23 Jun 2015 23:17:28
For a 25-year-old SS who just signed an extension, I'm guessing Atlanta would want a solid young pitcher in return as well as at least one or two top level prospects.

Simmons is one of the elite shortstops in the majors right now. the likelihood of Atlanta letting him go is very slim. it'll take a stupid return to get him. Tampa Bay doesn't have what they'll need.

Um so a guy who they sent to Washington as a DFA a couple weeks ago for a better and more established reliever?

Jeez I wouldn't think the Nats would have to give up Ross AND Robles. I could see a deal revolving around one of them, but jeez not both.

Tampa isn't giving up on Dickerson yet. I mean he hit 24 bombs and drove in 70 runs last year, WHILE adjusting to a new league, leaving coors field AND adjusting to a new spot in the lineup (DH) .

Pretty good haul for the Rays considering they don't have to give anyone up😂.

People say that Miami will only deal a certain group of guys, but I think we need to remember that Tampa has all the leverage here. They don't need to trade any of there starters. The Rays are simply dangling there SP's to see what's out there.
