Of the ones you suggested only a couple could happen. The Hamels one could happen, as could the Leake one. For the Cargo trade, did you see what the Rockies got for Tulo, I think they could get something similar for him. And Castro for one pitcher, Cubs wouldn't accept that. That Kimbrel trade is a big joke. It would take more to get him. Brue to the Angels is very possible, I think one more piece could be needed. The last one definitely not happening. One thing to add DJ Stewart and James Kaprielain can't be trade until after the World Series since they were just drafted.

Baltimore isn't giving up near enough for Carlos Gonzalez.

5.) 30 Jul 2015 02:16:25
Yanks don't need a closer,but I like the Angels one

6.) 30 Jul 2015 04:24:19
I think if the Angels are going to do anything now after the acquisitions of Victorino, Murphy, and Dejesus, they will go after a Catcher and or a Relief pitcher

Never Will Happen but Big Blockbuster Trades

What if?.

Giants trade Buster Posey, Santiago Casilla, Tim Hudson, Brandon Belt, Brandon Crawford to the Rangers for Mitch Moreland, Yu Darvish, Martin Perez,
Josh Hamilton, and cash

Angels trade Albert Pujols and Mike Trout to Cubs for Kris Bryant, Kyle Schwarber, Addison Russell, Jake Arrieta, and Hector Rondon

Pirates trade Gerrit Cole, Pedro Alvarez, Starling Marte, and Gregory Polanco to Padres for James Shields, Justin Upton, and Matt Kemp

Phillies trade Cole Hamels, Ken Giles, Jonathan Papelbon, Carlos Ruiz, Ryan Howard, and Chase Utley to Tigers for Miguel Cabrera, JD Martinez, and David Price

Astros trade Jose Altuve and Chris Carter to A's for Stephen Vogt, Marcus Semien, and Josh Reddick

Marlins trade Mat Latos, Dan Haren, Giancarlo Stanton to Blue Jays for Drew Hutchison, Todd Redmond, Chris Colabello, Kevin Pillar, Matt Hague, and RA Dickey

Mets trade David Wright and Lucas Duda to Nats for Bryce Harper


1.) 25 Jul 2015 06:02:50
You're right none of these will ever happen one team in each trade hits the lottery and the other gets totally screwed. I'd get it if it were trades with big names that were fair but these aren't even close

2.) 25 Jul 2015 14:41:09
I don't get why you wasted so much time making these ridiculous trades. They are one-sided and like you said not likely to happen. First one benefits the Rangers and makes the Giants worse. The second one benefits the Angels more as they get younger. The next one benefits the Padres. The next one robs and weakens the Tigers. The Astros one is just ridiculous. The Marlins one solely benefits the Blue Jays and makes the Marlins even more a joke than they already are. And the last one is joke, because there is a high chance the Nationals would never see Wright.

3.) 25 Jul 2015 16:37:05
I guess if you are a fan of the Rangers, Phillies, Padres, A's or Blue Jays, you might be thrilled with this.

These are terrible.

4.) 25 Jul 2015 16:39:05
The Pirates trade is the worst

5.) 25 Jul 2015 20:43:20
I'll answer the question "What if?"

If any of these trades happen. I will expect to be visted, shortly after, by a bald black man in a trench coat with two different colored pills.

6.) 26 Jul 2015 21:35:41
The first one is a joke 😂😂😂😂

MLB Players Who Will Be Traded and What Team Will Get Them

Cole Hamels- LAD
Johnny Cueto- NYY
David Price- CHC
Yovani Gallardo- CLE
Mike Leake- BAL
Ken Giles- PHI
Jonathan Papelbon- CHC
AJ Pierzynski- MIN
Adam Lind- PIT
Ben Zobrist- LAA
Brad Miller- LAD
Jimmy Rollins- PHI
Alex Guerrero- PHI
Justin Upton- PIT or BAL
Carlos Gomez- MIN or BAL
Jay Bruce- LAA or BAL
Yoenis Cespedes- CHC

Maybe Aroldis Chapman- TOR


1.) 23 Jul 2015 17:48:29
So you're saying the Cubs get Price and Cespedes from DET and then go after Pabelbon in a seperate trade? I highly doubt they deplete the farm for 2 rentals and a decent closer. These 3 guys would cost them too much of their future to make a run this year.

2.) 23 Jul 2015 18:15:37
i disagree with every single one of them.

3.) 23 Jul 2015 23:27:42
Philadelphia will trade Ken Giles to Philadelphia?

Sounds like a move Amaro would make. Also, no way do they take Rollins in a trade for Hamels (I'm guessing that's what you are getting at).

4.) 24 Jul 2015 20:50:06
the twins won't trade for A.J. or Carlos Gomez



23 Jul 2015 01:21:11
The Big Trades of the 2015 Deadline

LAD gets
Cole Hamels
Ken Giles

PHI gets
Julio Urias
Alex Guerrero

Dodgers are in big help of starting pitching since Ryu and McCarthy are out for the season. Beachy in his first couple starts filling in was horrendous. Frias is still hurt. Bolsinger is struggling, plus their bullpen has the second worst bullpen ERA since May 15. So Hamels and Giles are a good fit. Guerrero will be traded somewhere.

NYY gets
Johnny Cueto

CIN gets
Chase Whitley
Stephen Drew
Jose Pirela

The Reds are sellers mostly but are looking for a SS. Drew would start of Suarez. Cueto will be traded easily.

MIN gets
Carlos Gomez

MIL gets
Aaron Thompson
Eddie Rosario
PTNBL or cash

Carlos Gomez reunites with former club. Eddie Rosario is a good fit for Milwaukee and they would be getting a great relief pitcher in Tompson

LAD gets
David Price

DET gets
Corey Seager

Former Cy Young for future MVP? That is a great idea

LAA gets
Jay Bruce

CIN gets
Jered Weaver

Needs no explanation

BAL gets
Justin Upton

SD gets
Kevin Gausman
Hunter Harvey


PIT gets
Justin Upton

SD gets
Steve Lombardozzi
Charlie Leesman
Blake Wood

Which one is better? Post which is better in your mind

TOR gets
Aroldis Chapman
Mike Fiers

CIN gets
Daniel Norris
Liam Hendriks
Rob Rasmussen
Ryan Tepera

MIL gets
Dalton Pompey
Cash from both


1.) 23 Jul 2015 07:20:02
These are all awful.

-The Dodgers aren't giving up Seager. especially not for a 3-month rental.
-No way the Reds give up Bruce for a guy like Weaver. who is pretty much toast.
-That Yankees return for Cueto wouldn't get them a #5 starter in a rental.
-The Pittsburgh trade for Upton is horrendous. nobody is giving up much for a package led by Steve Lombardozzi.
-Toronto won't give all that up for a middle-rotation guy and a CP who is certainly testing the free agent market this winter.

These are like Greek theater - Some made me laugh. Some made me cry.

4.) 23 Jul 2015 13:13:53
All of these trades are horrible. You must not pay attention to baseball at all.

5.) 23 Jul 2015 13:39:19
Well sucks to suck

6.) 23 Jul 2015 13:49:48
Neither will happen. Urias and Guerrero will not land the Dodgers Hamels, a few more pieces are needed. As for the Cueto to the Yankees trade, PATHETIC, Whitely is out for the year with TJ, Drew can't hit a beach ball, and Pirela can't stay in the Majors. Yankees aren't getting a big time starter like Cueto unless they include Judge and Severino, which they will not do. For Price, its going to take more than Seager and cash, but the Dodgers would be the ones needing to get cash. I think Gomez would bring in better. Weaver for Bruce makes little since, the Angels need Weaver and the Reds are rebuilding and it doesn't make since for them to get him. Either Upton trade is awful. the 3 team trade has so many issues.

7.) 24 Jul 2015 01:01:13
The Phillies are not trading Giles. he's a great young arm who will replace Paps next season

8.) 24 Jul 2015 20:51:20
the twins are not going to trade eddie



21 Jul 2015 22:51:09
Pirates Trade Deadline

PIT gets:
Ben Revere

PHI gets:
Rob Scahill, Radhames Liz


PIT gets:
Justin Upton, Clint Barmes

SD gets:
Willy Garcia, Andrew Lambo, Brent Morel, PTBNL or cash


PIT gets:
Ben Zobrist

OAK gets: cash (most definitely), Justin Sellers, Casey Sadler,


1.) 22 Jul 2015 05:37:17
Pirates need a power bat out of either 1st base or RF. And defense at 1st base.

Pirates don't need Zobrist they already have a Ben Zobrist his name is Sean Rodriguez

I like the Revere trade as is but I don't think it will benefit much.

And Kang is playing great at SS and with the ability to play everyday he is hitting better.

Id rather have Hansen at 3rd than Morel (who has never hit in the majors) and if your worried about Kang range move Hansen to SS and Kang to 3rd

Personally I think the Pirates should look for 1st base and bench as more of a priority than SS

2.) 22 Jul 2015 14:44:26
That package will not land the Pirates Upton. Half of it might get them his brother. Which could still be to much for whatever he is going by these.

Apparently, there are reports about the Orioles being sellers? I do not think that should happen when they are not far from the playoff race? Should they be sellers and if so, who's gone? Davis? Norris? Wieters?


1.) 29 Jul 2015 20:53:46
None of them

If Detroit was really in the AL Wild Card race, Cole Hamels and David Price would be nasty for the other teams that are in the race or not

Exchanging Brayan Pena and Welington Castillo is like exchanging Mike Trout and Bryce Harper

Do you follow baseball? Because Pollock was an all star. They don't get traded often unless a team is a seller.
D-Backs aren't sellers.
