Looks like a championship caliber team to me.


2.) 01 Mar 2017 14:33:44
Weight will probably be on the DL and probably have T. J Rivera or Brandon Nimmo on the bench instead.


3.) 01 Mar 2017 15:20:08
Nimmo going down to AAA. Let him develop more. Rivera will probably take Wright's spot on the roster.


4.) 02 Mar 2017 18:40:32
Looks like a championship caliber team to me LOLOLOLOLOL Are you trolling? The lineup has almost 0 power Bruce can't play 1B only good hitters are Cespedes and maybe Walker. Rotation no one can stay healthy except Thor, bullpen is very weak looking like a 80 win team max doubt starters will stay healthy.


5.) 03 Mar 2017 00:26:00
I would say somewhere between jetjet and Mamba. I'll say 87 wins, out in either the wild card round or divisional. Their rotation can't stay healthy, familia will be out the first month at least, and that lineup is a bit weak. They aren't even the best in their division.

The Royals have several big name players who are FA at the end of the year. If they're out of it at the deadline, I can see them making a lot of moves.

You are underselling Hosmer, and probably Moustatkas, Escobar and possibly even Cain. Terrible moves for the Royals.


2.) 08 Feb 2017 18:56:32
You literally have Jorge Soler playing CF.


3.) 08 Feb 2017 20:53:02
Hosmer had a terrible year last year, and he's a free agent after this year. Getting Martes, who the Astros won't move for Quintana (who has 4 more years of control), would be a huge steal.

Yes, Hosmer is good, but his contract situation and his 2016 season really hinder his value.


4.) 08 Feb 2017 22:49:21
Roayls aren't going on a fire sale now and probably won't at all unless they're way out at the deadline.


5.) 09 Feb 2017 00:06:22
These are not very good. Also, if you deal those guys, you might as well be dealing guys from the bullpen, rotation, and Sal Perez.


6.) 12 Feb 2017 15:57:17
These deals don't look too bad to me but they would move on from Moss as well and Burns would be the CF.


7.) 15 Feb 2017 19:04:59
stros wouldn't even move Martes for Quintana - doubt they would for Hosmer. And Houston doesn't really need another hitter.

Not even remotely close to enough, Orioles would never do this


2.) 23 Jan 2017 19:44:38
The Orioles are more likely to pursue a right-handed bat to platoon with Kim/ Smith in the corner outfield spots.


3.) 24 Jan 2017 01:41:20
Guys, Bruce is a power-hitting OF in his prime. His stock has dropped some over the last couple of years, but he is still dangerous. Remember about this time last year, when the Orioles traded a backup catcher named Steve Clevenger to the Mariners for a power-hitting OF that most everyone was down on - a guy named Mark Trumbo, who led the AL in HRs last year. Bruce is better than him. The Orioles, Giants, or another team is going to get a bargain if they'll bring him on board.

Brach is good, but this is fair.


4.) 24 Jan 2017 02:29:11
I'm not arguing the value isn't fair one way or another, the O's just don't have a need for another left-handed corner outfielder. They don't like Kim against lefties and Smith is penciled in over in right field. They would go with a right-handed hitter.


5.) 24 Jan 2017 05:21:19
Put it this way, values are equal due to team needs.


6.) 25 Jan 2017 05:54:51
Trumbo can play multiple positions. Bruce can't even play his own.


7.) 25 Jan 2017 11:50:24
Exposfan, that may be the dumbest comment I've seen here. You think Trumbo is a Gold Glover?


8.) 25 Jan 2017 16:55:35
I spent some time perusing this site and found many of your replies. You seem to talk more than think. I suggest that if you want to be heard, you practice hearing others out before insulting them. No Trumbo is not a gold glover. But he can play multiple positions which makes him more valuable. Bruce can't even play OF and realistically should be a DH for most of his career, at least Trumbo can be used in a fielding role if need be.


9.) 25 Jan 2017 16:57:45
Also, saying Bruce is better than Trumbo proves you didn't even look at any stats. It seems you're more interested in being heard than you are in being correct.


10.) 25 Jan 2017 19:46:28
Brach is an all star, Bruce is a scrub value isn't equal. Brach still has multiple years of control Bruce doesn't. Mets would be lucky to get a semi decent player for him there is no planet where Bruce is better than Trumbo.

Red Sox Guy has no clue what he's talking about 10 out of 10 times


11.) 26 Jan 2017 00:08:35
Look at stats beyond last year, boys. Maybe you will get the picture. Right now, you don't. Learn to think for yourself. Home runs are great, but not the end-all, be-all of stats. Look at others too.

To say that Trumbo can play multiple positions is moronic. Trumbo's best position is DH. Bruce is at least an okay outfielder.


12.) 26 Jan 2017 02:36:19
Last three years:

Mark Trumbo: 83 HR, 233 RBI, .253/ .309/ .477, 24.8 K%, 2.1 WAR (if you're into WAR) . -12 DRS, -15.5 DEF.

Jay Bruce: 77 HR, 252 RBI, .231/ .295/ .440, 23.5 K%, 0.2 WAR. -12 DRS, -37.9 DEF (that makes him the second worst RF over that span)

Trust me, when I said Trumbo was better, I already looked at the numbers. And also, no, Bruce is a worse outfielder than Trumbo (who is also bad) . The only reason Bruce plays OF is because there is no designated hitter in the NL.


13.) 26 Jan 2017 02:39:28
And can we take a moment to acknowledge that in telling us to look at stats beyond last year, it's evidently clear you did not do any such thing. Because had you, you would've kept your mouth shut.

Again, you seem more interested in being heard than you do in being correct.


14.) 28 Jan 2017 14:23:20
But, you were still selective in your stats, and your years. Look at these guys' total history. Bruce has been the superior player; and, this time last year, Trumbo had almost no value. He peaked last year, my dim-witted friend.


15.) 28 Jan 2017 18:30:53
Oh geez.

They were "selective" because they didn't end in the conclusion you wanted. What stat do you want me to add? And will that stat suddenly sway it toward Jay Bruce? He led in ONE stat in that 3-year span. One.


16.) 28 Jan 2017 18:37:05
As for he "peaked", he was still better than Bruce up until 2016.

Trumbo's first year was 2011, so taking Bruce's number to that same point, with a 162 game average:

Trumbo: 32 HR, 97 RBI, 75 R, .251/ .301/ .461, 6.6% BB, 24.7% K.
Bruce: 30 HR, 97 RBI, 86 R, .244/ .316/ .457, 9.3% BB, 24.9% K.

From 2011-2015, the stats once again show Trumbo was the better player. He didn't just "peak" in 2016. In fact, 2016 wasn't even his best year. You'd know that if you looked at the numbers.

Please, quit calling people "dim-witted" when you can't even devote yourself to being right.


17.) 28 Jan 2017 18:30:53

19.) 29 Jan 2017 02:15:52
Exposfan, did you look at your own statistics? Last year was a career year for Trumbo, yet those stats are quite comparable, despite the fact that Bruce had a poor year.

Also, you have the DEF listed. You do know that Trumbo is such a poor fielder that he has been penciled in at DH much of his career, while Bruce has always played the OF?

Run out to the mailbox and get your check now. You have lots of time to try to prove me wrong while solidifying my statement that Bruce is a better option.


20.) 29 Jan 2017 03:29:22
1. No, Bruce is worse. DEF at RF is worse for Bruce than Trumbo. If Bruce played in the American League, he would be a permanent DH.

2. It's still funny you're asking me to look at stats. You clearly haven't looked at a single one, nor even listed any to try and prove your point. Not one. Please, back up your statement. If you're not going to show any stats, then it's best to stay quiet. You look like a fool.

3. You do realize that most of Bruce's numbers were because of 2011–2013? Look at his numbers from 2014 to now. He was one of the worst RF in all of baseball. Teams care more about what you've done recently, not what you did in 2011. If they did, Matt Kemp would be the most valuable player in the game still.

It's a worthless waste of my time, because you have made up your mind that you are right (so convenient) . You WON'T back it up, because you CAN'T. So until you offer stats, do yourself a favor and zip it.


21.) 29 Jan 2017 17:11:56
At expos, who needs to go to an ATM or rob a liquor store so that he can buy a clue.

Lifetime stats

Jay Bruce - .318 OBP, .467 slugging, 241 HRs in 4650 ABs
Mark Trumbo - .303 OBP, .473 slugging, 178 HRs in 3167 ABs

Similar percentages - Bruce gets on base more, Trumbo has a little more pop.

You cite defense, though, as a big difference between the two, indicating for some unknown reason that Trumbo is superior. That, my friend, is where you really show your ignorance, and could not be more wrong.

Bruce has had 2495 putouts playing OF. Trumbo has had a grand total of 553 in the OF, which greatly reveals his defensive limitations. Trumbo has also started 343 games at first base, which is just over two full seasons worth. Why? Because he has the range of a chair.

Let's look at the range factor. Bruce, in the OF, is listed at 2.09; Trumbo, in the OF, is listed at 1.60. To give you a comparison, AJ Pollock, a pretty good CF, is listed at 2.27 for his career in the OF.

Keep your day job, if you have one.


22.) 29 Jan 2017 23:00:47
"you were still selective in your stats" –You, above.

Yet, you cited "range factor" and putouts to try and defend your stats on defense. Yet putouts are purely a counting stat, meaning someone with more experience will have more (probably an advanced concept for a Red Sox fan) .

Then, you cited three stats, 2 of which kind of favor Bruce, but really they don't. Because when you balance them out per AB, or better yet, per game (Bruce has played in over 400 more games than Trumbo), Trumbo actually hits at a much better rate. Per 162 games, Trumbo hits 34 HR, 99 RBI. Trumbo strikes out a hair more, and walks a hair less, but his wOBA and his wRC+ makes up for that.

Also, can we please address a glaring fallacy you pointed out earlier: you said Trumbo "peaked" last season. How do you consider his most recent season a "peak" when you don't have the slightest clue what will follow?

If anyone peaked, it was Jay Bruce, FOUR YEARS AGO! Over the past 3 seasons, Jay Bruce has been one of the worst RF in all of baseball. Per WAR, the only people worse have been Gerardo Parra and Avisail Garcia. If we stretch that to ALL qualified outfielders, he is also higher by Cody Asche, that's it. He's the FOURTH WORST outfielder in baseball over the past 3 seasons, cumulative. But keep thinking he's valuable. I hope he joins the Red Sox.


23.) 29 Jan 2017 23:51:26
One other fallacy from before, "Also, you have the DEF listed. You do know that Trumbo is such a poor fielder that he has been penciled in at DH much of his career, while Bruce has always played the OF? "

First, citing Trumbo's issues (by the way, he has a higher DEF rating than Trumbo) is beside the point.

Second, Trumbo plays DH because he has that ability in the AL. If Bruce played in the AL, he would be a full-time DH as well. Let's not pretend that because he's a full-time OF that he's better. He's only a full-time OF because there is literally no where else to play him.


24.) 30 Jan 2017 01:38:00
expos, I wish you were in every fantasy baseball league that I'm in. Your nickname would be Easy Pickens.


25.) 30 Jan 2017 06:03:10
Good for you!

But hey, when you can't win an argument, just go on the attack. Mighty big keyboard warrior we got here folks!


26.) 30 Jan 2017 06:17:42
As for this "debate", you refuse to accept any statistic that doesn't fit your argument, so I'll just leave it be. You are too arrogant to listen, and resort to insults when you are backed into a corner.

Time to grow up pal. You hide behind a computer throwing out insults. Real sad way to spend your free time.

Pirates

I think PIT will head into the season with their current roster, however, i think come the deadline, once they're out of it they will trade their pieces for prospects.


TRADES

PIT- Brady Aiken, Francisco Mejia,
CLE- Andrew McCutchen

PIT gets a projected LH for their staff in 2 years and Mejia can take over next year for Cervelli if he continues to struggle.


PIT- Jorge Mateo, Justus Sheffield, Dillon Tate
NYY- Gerrit Cole

Cole and PIT are on bad terms because of the failed contract-extension talks. If PIT is out of it i can see them moving Cole for some young prospects.


2018
C- Francisco Mejia
1B- Josh Bell
2B- Jorge Mateo
3B- David Freese
SS- Alen Hanson
LF- Starling Marte
CF- Gregory Polonco
RF- Austin Meadows

SP- Tyler Glasnow
SP- Justus Sheffield
SP- Dillon Tate
SP- Mitch Keller.

1.) 15 Dec 2016 13:53:55
Interesting, I just doubt that Freeze will still be there in 2018, it will probably be Adam Frazier instead and I also think that they could get more for Cutch.


2.) 15 Dec 2016 14:49:08
So by both these moves you have the Pirates sort of rebuilding. They are open to moving McCutchen because they have Meadows waiting in the wings. There is no reason to trade Cole.


3.) 15 Dec 2016 15:40:49
I almost pressed believable but I think that the Pirates are looking to trade McCutchen before the season; and the Indians probably won't be their target.


4.) 15 Dec 2016 23:54:19
Cole will be back beyond next spring. Cutch is still likely to be dealt.


5.) 16 Dec 2016 14:55:43
Batman! I was hesitant to put Cole on the block, but I don't see them moving closer to an extension with him before next season. He is a FA after 2019 and trading him at the deadline or next offseason would bring back the best return, rather than with 1 year left. He was already angry about the failed extension talks and the renewal under his 2015 salary. I think if they get a solid offer (and they're out of it), they would consider making the move.

Samson_Ortiz I don't think they are moving him before Spring Training now. I thought they would, but there are too many teams who filled their CF hole via FA or Trade. I think they will hold onto him until mid-season. If they are out of it, i think they make the move and the Indians will be a good fit.


6.) 16 Dec 2016 23:49:54
Cleve is not giving up their top Pitching prospect and a Top 5 catching prospect for 1 year of Cutch. Not happening.

The Yanks love Sheffield. He is their lefty of the future. Yanks have never won without excellent lefty on staff. Not giving him up.
Mateo available because of depth-Tate was number 6 overall in 2015-but not untouchable. Pirates better off holding Cole until deadline and building his value back up. Only pitched 116 innings last year. Yanks would like Cole but not at those prices. Call back in July!

Everyone is posting Jay Bruce trades. However, I think he actually could enter the year on the team because the teams interested have filled their needs elsewhere (PHI- Saunders, TOR- Bautista) .

Let Conforto and Nimmo go down and fine-tune their swings. The Mets have several players who are FA at the end of the year (Duda, Walker, Cabrera, Granderson, Bruce, Reed) who will free up a lot of money. They have young players ready to step in when needed.

Astros

HOU- Jose Quintana and David Robertson

This gives HOU 2 solid frontline starters to make a run. Robertson is a good SU man for Giles. The White Sox get back their players they asked for from HOU plus two players who can fill in immedietely

The Yankees need a 5th starter and the Astros need to shed some salary. This trade makes sense for both.

Archer will cost more than Quintana or Sale, he's an ace pitcher with 5 years of control on an extremely cheap contract, Rays shouldn't trade him unless they're getting 1 young MLB player, and 4 premium prospects, asking price should and would be high.


2.) 22 Dec 2016 13:36:08
No he won't look at his stats last year. He had a down year so I see the Rays holding on to him to see if he can rebuild his value, so I see the Rays going after a cheaper answer. I could actually see them going after someone like Pinada and keeping Happ would be smart because he could turn into another Zobrist who isn't getting any younger so he could eventually replace him.


3.) 22 Dec 2016 15:52:04
HE HAD A DOWN YEAR BECAUSE THE RAYS SUCKED! If he actually had a good team behind him he would've posted results like he has before. And again that's a problem with people on here, they only take into account what happened last year and that's it. 1 bad year because of a bad team doesn't eliminate multiple great years. You can't deny he has the most team friendly deal, his deal is better than Sales and Quintanas. If he had a good team he could be as good if not better than Sale.

This gives the White Sox a plethora of young talent at every position. Pitching depth could be used to acquire some veteran talent once they pick their starting 5. This team would be in control for a long time.

Nimmo going down to AAA. Let him develop more. Rivera will probably take Wright's spot on the roster.

McCutchen for Brach and Miley is the worst trade i have ever seen. and the Mets would need to give up more for Frazier.

Batman! I was hesitant to put Cole on the block, but I don't see them moving closer to an extension with him before next season. He is a FA after 2019 and trading him at the deadline or next offseason would bring back the best return, rather than with 1 year left. He was already angry about the failed extension talks and the renewal under his 2015 salary. I think if they get a solid offer (and they're out of it), they would consider making the move.

Samson_Ortiz I don't think they are moving him before Spring Training now. I thought they would, but there are too many teams who filled their CF hole via FA or Trade. I think they will hold onto him until mid-season. If they are out of it, i think they make the move and the Indians will be a good fit.
