Overpay for Kipnis and the Angels don’t have enough to get Freeman (if he’s even available in the first place) .


2.) 22 Nov 2017 21:57:47
The mess the Braves are in right now, they probably need to keep Freeman, just to keep fans coming. or at least attempt to keep fans coming.


3.) 22 Nov 2017 22:46:31
Same way they didn't have enough to land Simmons (if he was even available)


4.) 23 Nov 2017 01:28:59
Serrano-are you seriously comparing Simmons and Freeman's trade values? Simmons was coming off 2 years of .617 and .660 OPS and Freeman's last 2 yrs his OPS is .968 and .989. It will take a lot to get the best player on the Braves. All you are offering are three 20 year olds who are not ranked in Top 100 prospects. They have 7 rated higher. WHY would they make that trade? NOT happening!


5.) 23 Nov 2017 16:07:53
The Freeman proposed trade has little likelihood of happening. The Braves would need to see above and beyond for a team to get him.

The Kipnis for Cron/ Calhoun is an over pay for the Angels. but, not completely without merit. The acquisition of Kipnis would solve the 2B hole while bringing a veteran presence. The Indians would be incline to pay more. To make the deal more palatable, the Indians could go one of two directions. Addition to level the deal or addition to improve both teams take on the deal:

Addition to level the deal:

Indians get: Cron and Calhoun
Angels get: Kipnis and one of Erik Gonzalez/ Ryan Merritt

Both Gonzalez and Merritt have shown ability to perform on the big stage and are ML ready w/ 5 years of club control

Addition to expand the deal:

Indians get: Calhoun, Cron and Jahmai Jones
Angels get: Kipnis and Francisco Mejia

These additions show the value Mejia brings as the # 13 overall prospect in MLB at a premium defensive position. Surprisingly, Mejia's best tool is his throwing arm over his bat, which has been pretty spectacular. Jahmai is special athlete learning / honing his craft as an OF'er. He is about a year away from being ML ready. This timeframe dove tails nicely into a role as an athletic starting OF or fourth OF with the Indians.

For my $$$, I'd grab Mejia if I were the Angels.

Thoughts?

Mejia is top rated Catcher prospect. Why would they trade him?


7.) 23 Nov 2017 19:26:23
From an Angels POV, I say yes to the addition of Mejia and Jahmai Jones in that deal.


8.) 24 Nov 2017 02:46:01
The Indians have Berto Perez and Yan Gomes, two excellent defensive backstops. They handle the Indians staff as well as anyone can imagine. perhaps more. The best pitching staff in baseball trusts these two guys. Both guys combine to be a top five "team" of backstops in baseball at blocking balls, calling games, throwing out runners, home runs and run production. The Indians' catcher's work is is a key factor in Cleveland's recent success. Both Berto and Yan are signed to team friendly contracts through the 2020/ 21 season. The Indians also have a pair of young back stops behind Mejia that are equally revered as defense first guys (Ice and Haase) . This is a position of depth for the Indians. If they can reduce payroll by moving Kip while adding a trio of hitters, 1B, OF and the lottery ticket that is Jahmai. it makes sense both fiscally as well as a baseball decision.

Jays get Calhoun, Valbuena, Marsh, Barria
Angels get Donaldson, Pearce.

Not enough for Josh.

Kole Calhoun for Cesar Hernandez.

Serrano

 

 

23 Oct 2017 11:44:01
Upton opts in

Garrett Richards for Cesar Hernandez and Cole Stobbe

-Richards pitched well to end the season. Angels should trade him while he still has some value. Can't risk losing him to injury for the 3rd year in a row. Hernandez would address their need at 2B long term

Angels sign Carlos Santana to play 1B 3/ 40

Non tender Cron

Trout
Calhoun
Upton
Santana
Pujols
Simmons
Valbuena
Maldonado
Hernandez.

Why would the Reds want Richards? Don't they have a bunch of young pitchers they want to play? I do however like LA going after Hernandez, and Philly has a good incentive to move him.


2.) 23 Oct 2017 22:08:03
Not the Reds, I meant the Phillies.


3.) 23 Oct 2017 23:12:09
Do the Phillies want to give up a guy like Hernandez, who still has three years of team control for one year of Garrett Richards, who isn't exactly a guy who's proved to be healthy?

I'd imagine if the Phillies were close to contending, they'd consider it. But they'd likely want more team control if they move Hernandez.

Mets get Maybin

Angels get Granderson.

Serrano

1.) 22 Dec 2016 13:26:04
Not terrible, but doubtful.


2.) 22 Dec 2016 16:58:52
Why would they do that Mayben is both younger and cheaper.

I predicted EE would get 3/ 65. Good deal for Indians. Next they'all sign Joey Bats.

Serrano

Where and when did you predict this? I went on your profile looked at your last 5 Rumors posts, and there wasn't anything there, and that goes back to mid November so about a week after the World Series which I doubt you said that since everyone thought he'd get 100M. I looked at your Talk posts and this is the only one. Congrats you played yourself and you're a liar.

Nah. Rather keep Jones. If he had to be dealt, not for Longoria.

Stop with the trade Trout nonsense. Just STOP. There is NO amount of prospects worth Mike Trout. The Angels problem is #14. That would be the 1st step in the right direction. Your trade proposal is a joke.

Why doesn't it make sense? I'm interested in your opinion.
My angle is, the Rockies could use a power hitting 1B. Calhoun is a great player who is under control for 3 more years.

The Angels get their 2B. They can extend CarGo and they can definitely use his left handed bat in the middle of that lineup. With Cron gone, you can plug Marte at 1B and keep his bat in the lineup.

Maybin
LeMahieu
Trout
Pujols
CarGo
Escobar
Marte
Bandy
Simmons

That's a pretty balanced lineup imo
Rockies get younger, less expensive. Maybe they can keep McMahon or Chatwood in this deal.
