TB sends RP Alex Colome (3 years of control), SP Jake Odorizzi (2 years of control)


MIN sends OF Eddie Rosario (4-5 years {might be super 2} of control), 2B/SS Nick Gordon (MILB), SP Tyler Jay, and C Mitch Garver (MILB)


1.) 18 Jan 2018 04:36:40
That'd be a hard pass from Minnesota.



11 Dec 2017 14:27:52
Rockies apparently going hard after Colome...

COL gets RP Alex Colome

TB gets OF David Dahl


1.) 11 Dec 2017 17:08:08
Not enough.

2.) 11 Dec 2017 21:11:45
On the TB side?

3.) 12 Dec 2017 15:36:52
Colome is worth more than just Dahl.

4.) 16 Dec 2017 17:49:22
Gotta add more than a guy who didn't play this season.



08 Dec 2017 08:25:47
PHI and TB

TB gets OF Aaron Altherr and C Andrew Knapp

PHI gets SP Jake Odorizzi and SP Jose De Leon

Phillie gets an immediate upgrade to the rotation, a solid mid rotation starter to pitch behind Nola, and a top pitching prospect that's major league ready. Rays get an above average bat to plug into LF with upside and remaining team control. They also get a catcher to add depth at AAA.

Rays have the starting depth to absorb this loss and the Phillies have young outfielders like Cozens and Quinn ready to step in as well as the financial resources to sign a bounce back candidate like Carlos Gonzalez.


1.) 08 Dec 2017 16:12:52
I think the Rays could do better for Odorizzi.

2.) 08 Dec 2017 17:24:13
I think it might cost more for Odorizzi alone, including De Leon as well makes this have no chance of happening.

3.) 09 Dec 2017 01:57:55
The thing to keep in mind is years of control. Altherr has 4 years left of control, Odorizzi only 2.

4.) 09 Dec 2017 05:16:37
Also consider: you can find controllable outfielders anywhere. You can’t find controllable pitchers everywhere.

5.) 12 Dec 2017 01:36:36
No way are the Rays trading 2 for 2. They expect to get 2-3 players for Odorizzi alone. Also they never ever trade good young controllable pitchers like De Leon. They really like him.

A couple trades for the Rays...who needs to add more?

TB CL Alex Colome
LAD OF Joc Pederson

Rays are looking to cut payroll and could sell high on Colome, giving the Dodgers a potent set up option behind Jansen. Pederson seemed to fall out of favor with the Dodgers, including a demotion to the minors, and they have a plethora of outfield options for 2018. Rays could use a solid outfielder in LF and saves the Rays a few million dollars.

TB SP Jake Odorizzi, SP Yonny Chirinos (Rays minor league pitcher of the year(
CHC 1B/OF Kyle Schwarber

Rumor is that Cubs will look to deal from their offensive depth to improve their rotation and Odorizzi gives them a solid mid-rotation arm and Chirinos gives them excellent depth at AAA. The Schwarber experiment in the OF has been rough and he seems best suited for an everyday role at 1B/DH in the AL.


1.) 24 Nov 2017 13:34:10
Schwarber is like Eric Hosmer or Matt Kemp. He'll always have a ton of perceived value, but in actuality, he really isn't good enough for the hype.

Schwarber not only couldn't field the ball, he stopped hitting the damn thing. He had a 102 wRC+ and was 95th in wOBA.

He's just not very good and I don't know why everyone thinks he just need to be a DH. He doesn't hit.

2.) 24 Nov 2017 18:11:59
Schwarber is hilariously bad in left field.



25 Jan 2017 07:21:35
TB: - HOU:

With a young wave of pitching on the way (Martes, Paulino, Devenski, Musgrove), the Castro could use one more solid pitcher to add to the rotation this year.

Likewise, after trading Forsythe for De Leon, the Rays could trade yet another starter and add a young impact bat at first base, shifting Brad Miller to 2B.

HOU gets SP Alex Cobb

TB gets 1B AJ Reed


1.) 25 Jan 2017 13:31:01
A. J. Reed is a .164 career hitter. Cobb is an established starting pitcher. The Rays don't need another guy who can't hit.

2.) 25 Jan 2017 15:59:33
Yeah, this seems like a horrible trade for the rays.

3.) 25 Jan 2017 16:20:50
AJ Reed has about a 100 AB's in ML baseball. This is not a career number. it's not even close to it. AJ Reed is a much better hitter than these few plate appearances show. The Rays DO need a guy who plays 1B that can hit. and AJ Reed could be that guy.

4.) 25 Jan 2017 21:47:58
I don't like how people say something hungrybear did, but saying a guy is career .164 hitter. it is happening a lot, the point is the guy doesn't even have one full season under him, he only has 45 games and 122 at bats. You can't call those career numbers yet.

5.) 25 Jan 2017 20:08:45
65 173 .164 .270 .262 .532 .

baseball reference

6.) 25 Jan 2017 21:58:43
Check the reference yourself. He has a future in baseball. But he is not worth an established starting pitcher. Also Tampa is not good at drafting players. Beckham for example. He has not worked out at all. They will probably start him at second base and go into the basement again. Its not just Beckham. They have let a lot of good players go over the years.

7.) 26 Jan 2017 00:03:42
Reed will be fine.

8.) 27 Jan 2017 02:31:37
Cookie your last statement was spot on, he'll be a decent player but not near enough for cobb

Which trade makes the most sense

TB Jake Odorizzi for:

ATL: deal centered around Inciarte
ARI: deal centered around Peralta
TEX: deal centered around Gallo
HOU: one of Reed/ Tucker/ Fisher and one of Martes/ Paulino
MIA: deal centered around Ozuna.


1.) 07 Nov 2016 03:01:50
Why did you repost this?



06 Nov 2016 06:31:41
Which of these trades makes more sense for Jake Odorizzi and the Rays in your opinion:

TEX: trade centered around Gallo
HOU: Reed/ Tucker/ Fisher and Martes/ Paulino
ARI: Peralta and a couple B prospects
MIA: trade centered around Ozuna
ATL: trade centered around Inciarte.


1.) 06 Nov 2016 13:34:24
If I'm the Marlins I go after Ozuna, but I'm not sure any of these deals would really happen.

2.) 06 Nov 2016 22:40:33
Diamondbacks trade would be out if all others were on the table. Peralta is just not in the same caliber as the others.

Houston's would be attractive purely on quantity.

I think the Rays would want more assurance that Gallo isn't just another Mike Olt.

Ozuna and Inciarte are both good trades.

So really, any but Arizona and Texas.

"Brewers trade a couple top 100 and couple throw ins for Yelich. Decent return because Brinson was included. "

Brinson was a consensus top 100 prospect and both Harrison and Diaz have made different top 100 lists this offseason. So it's arguably 3 top 100 prospects and the 21th ranked prospect in a strong system.

Rays have no need for Ramirez and would probably target Cron over Valbuena as he is cheaper and fills a void at 1B with other candidates to take over at 3B already in house. Maybe something like Cron, Jones, Thaiss, and Bedrosian?

As a Rays fan, I would take that deal for Colome. Hoffman has lost some luster but both Walker and Castellani have solid upside. Another idea I had floated was Colome for Dahl straight up. This would appeal more to Tampa Bay, as they aren't actually rebuilding, but instead trying to reallocate resources and save money. McMahon would likely appeal to the Rays as well.

I think the offer for Archer is too light. I doubt they would want both Weaver and Flaherty with the their strength of pitching in the high minors. I could see any deal likely starting with Weaver and Kelly. They would probably also want a young OF in the deal, O'Neil seems to fit better as Sierra is very similar to Mallex Smith. Maybe something like Weaver, Kelly, O'Neil and some lottery tickets?
