Trade I see making sense in the offseason
A's trade: Khris Davis
Giants trade: Andrew Suarez, Aramis Garcia, Austin Slater

I can't see the Athletics trading anyone to the Giants, let alone a cheap, controllable outfielder.

Totally see where you're coming from but Davis isn't going to help the A's compete any time soon. Davis is 29 I believe and not a whole lot of teams have a need for a power hitter with low average and Giants biggest holes are a power hitter and a left fielder Davis fills both.

The Giants also rank dead last in outfield defense. The last thing they need is to trade for a guy who ranks among the 5 worst defensive outfielders in baseball.

I kinda wanna look at some off-season trades so and I know some may seem unlikely.

Braves trade: Luiz Gohara, Joey Wentz, Austin Riley
Marlins trade: Dan Straily

O's trade: Britton
Dodgers trade: Yadier Alvarez, Yusniel Diaz, Gavin Lux

Padres trade: Brad Hand
Astros trade: JB Bukauskas, David Paulino, Jorge Alcala

O's trade: Manny Machado
Braves trade: Ozzie Albies, Mike Soroka, Ian Anderson, Travis Demeritte, Touki Toussaint

Explanations
First trade Marlins are likely going to trade Straily and Braves are looking for controllable starters I also feel the Braves will make the jump the contender status next year

Second trade: I believe O's will realize they can't compete and sell their 2 biggest pieces I believe the Astros will want to keep their top prospects and will settle, Dodgers get probably the best righty lefty duo in the majors.

Third trade: Like I said I believe the Astros will settle and the Padres will have to too, they still get a top 100 prospect along with 2 interesting arms.

Last trade: to sum up what I've said O's rebuild Braves contend Braves I think will have a great chance to bring machado back

Straily trade: not anywhere close to enough. Straily still has 3-4 years of control as a SP and is very good. It'll take a lot more to bring him to any team.

Britton trade: too much from the Dodgers' perspective. They won't trade their top farm guys for a luxury, which Britton is, thanks to Jansen.

Hand trade: not enough. Padres want to be blown away for him. This won't do it.

Machado: too much. Machado's value has tanked, while he'll still pull a strong trade, it won't be this much.

Unlikely to see Britton traded but

O's trade: Britton
Dodgers trade: Alex Verdugo, Yusniel Diaz, Brock Stewart, Dennis Santana

OR
O's trade: Britton
Astros trade: Forrest Whitley, Yordan Alvarez, David Paulino, Daz Cameron

A trade for Britton will have to include one of each teams top 2 prospects since imo he's the best reliever

If that's the asking price, yeah, I think it's unlikely.

A's trade: Gray, Alonso
Yankees trade: Torres, Chance Adams, Justice Sheffield, Albert Abreu, Jake Cave

I used the basis for the Quintana trade since Gray and Quintana are compareable.

i think this is really fair

Lol, no way.


2.) 27 Jul 2017 01:02:45
Too much. If Frazier or Torres go (Gasp! but I thought they were untouchable), the rest of the package won't be quite the package you have up there.


3.) 27 Jul 2017 14:13:06
Yankees wouldn't trade Torres alone for those two.

Rumors have it Braves were interested in acquiring Q and we're considering offering Albies so they might have interest in another young controllable pitcher Sonny Gray.

A's trade: Gray
Braves trade: Albies, Touki Toussaint, Dustin Peterson

ThatOneGuy

Very plausible.


2.) 17 Jul 2017 15:08:03
Plausible but the Braves would be smart to either stand pat or find a way to do the trade without Albies, he is their future along with Swanson, don't trade him unless it is for a top 15 player in the league.

Sony Gray will net a return similar to what the Sox got for Q. It will be slightly lighter imo but still at least a top 10-15 prospect will be a headliner.
