Two Wild Card Contenders Help Each Other Out

Mariners get Brett Gardner

Yankees get Felix Hernandez


The Mariners get a much better option in CF and a lead off hitter with pop in Gardner who could also provide veteran leadership while cutting salary in half and for one less year.

The Yankees get a veteran starter who knows how to pitch for their postseason run once he returns from the DL and would be a nice replacement for Sabathia next year as an innings eater. They have too many outfielders as it is and Ellsbury's contract is unmovable so Gardner is the odd man out. They can afford to take on his contract with A-Rod, Sabathia, and possibly Tanaka's money coming off the books after this year.


Who says no?

Felix Hernandez is out the next 3-4 weeks. this does nothing to help the Yankees. Once again bwright not well thought out.


2.) 09 Aug 2017 17:51:32
I know he's out 3-4 weeks. I said when he gets back and also next year.

Regardless, do you think the value is fair for both teams?


3.) 09 Aug 2017 18:14:30
No not all. Felix isn't the same pitcher he used to be. The Yankees are getting younger and he no longer fits them. Next year they have Gray, Severino, and Montgomery. I don't think Tanaka opts out after this horrible year he is having. I think they sign someone to bridge them to when Chance Adams is ready.


4.) 09 Aug 2017 18:30:29
Fair enough. I appreciate the constructive criticism.

Have you seen Jordan Montgomery pitch? Under 4 ERA in AL East. Less than hit/ Inn, .245 BAA and .714 OPS. Would you give him up for rental in Darvish. Why would Yanks give up starter to get starter. They will be looking to add SP. This is add 1 subtract 1. Are you thinking? Add in 3 Top 100 prospects (Mateo, Andujar and Fowler) FOR A RENTAL! If you say call up Adams-call him up and keep all those trade chips. You could get Sonny Gray or Gerrit Cole (2 1/ 2 yrs each) for that.

Mets could get lots more if they sold Duda, Blevins and Reed separately. Why would Yanks trade Gardner (leadoff hitter, gold glover) for Peralta who MLB projects as a #4 starter and still in AA. No need! They have plenty of SP prospects in minors-Adams, Sheffield, Kaprelian, Abreu, Ramirez, Acevedo, Tate. etc. Plus Cessa, Mitchell and Chad Green. Not a lot of thought put into this post!


2.) 18 Jul 2017 22:40:23
So bwright it seems you are back to being very delusional. The first trade is horrible, No one is going to give up top prospects for 3 rentals. if they were top of the market players, then yes possibly top prospects would be necessary. I don't see the Darvish trade happening. I don't see the Frazier trade happening either. Gardner will get traded, but I think it will be in the offseason. I also think he could get more in return, not top prospects, but mid levels/ fringe prospects.

Yankees Trade Deadline Idea

Rangers get Jorge Mateo, Miguel Andujar, Domingo Acevedo, and Jordan Montgomery

Yankees get Yu Darvish


The Rangers get a pretty nice haul for a rental in Darvish.

The Yankees get the front line starter they need who would likely get along great with Tanaka and could help recruit Shohei Otani in the offseason to create a Japanese Big 3 in the rotation.

bwright0628

1.) 30 Jun 2017 15:01:07
You just contradicted yourself, you acknowledge that Darvish is a rental, then you don't mention them resigning him in the offseason, which they won't. Then you say he and Tanaka will help recruit Otani to the Yankees and have a Japanese Big 3 in the rotation. How? Darvish is free agent.


2.) 30 Jun 2017 15:34:58
BATMAN! that was assuming they resign him. However you still have to consider him a rental at the deadline because once free Agency hits you just never know.

However, do you think the trade is fair?


3.) 30 Jun 2017 16:26:57
No where in your post did you mention them resigning Darvish.


4.) 30 Jun 2017 16:54:25
I know that. I thought it was implied. Quit nitpicking every detail that you can find to put down other people's posts and try coming up with some of your own. If you don't want to give me your opinion on the trade than don't bother saying anything. If you don't like the trade or don't think it's fair, than fine, tell me why, or how it could be made better. You're nothing but a troll.


5.) 30 Jun 2017 17:18:55
You are correct i was nitpicking. (I am sure thestatbook will have field day with that) . but when you don't say something and try to say it was under the assumption they do this or that it needs to be said. Otherwise you look foolish. As for telling you why your trades aren't good, I've done that all last year. you don't listen and continue to post the same thing weekly with very minor tweaks doing nothing to improve.


6.) 30 Jun 2017 17:32:27
So tell me about this one. Good or bad and why?


7.) 30 Jun 2017 17:55:48
Well actually this may be the most reasonable one you have posted.


8.) 30 Jun 2017 18:29:16

No bwight
A, the Pirates wouldn't accept that
B, Why would u trade two contributors for players that haven't proved themselves yet when u r in jt, what do u think each of them r going to come up and magically hit .350 with 30 HR's, No that doesn't happen
C, Why do the Braves do that.


2.) 03 Jun 2017 18:15:55
Get use to this. Bwright will be back every week with pretty much the same post or what he calls improvements. He did this last year when the trade deadline was coming, then again when the waiver trade deadline came, and in the offseason.


3.) 04 Jun 2017 13:57:54
So you have them buying AND selling?

If thu trade for Cole, it will cost them Clint Frazier, Jorge Mateo and then two more prospects, let's say Miguel Andujar and Domingo Acevedo.


4.) 05 Jun 2017 20:44:10
Seattle doesn't need outfield. They have plenty of young options in their farm system. They have three under 30 outfielder capable of hitting .300 currently on their major league roster. If they are able to overcome injuries and be buyers at the deadline, they are going to trade for pitching not a 33 year old outfielder for arguably their best pitching prospect (organization pitcher of the year last season) if they sell they won't be selling prospects. No from seattle.


5.) 05 Jun 2017 23:55:18
Cullen-still haven't a clue. JMontgomery has 4 games started with 3 hits or less. Only 2 other pitchers have done that. Their names Kershaw and ESantana. POTENTIAL! Have you seen Chance Adams numbers? He's 23-3 in AA and AAA. POTENTIAL:UNTOUCHABLE! Throw in Mateo TOP 50 MLB prospect and Fowler (check his numbers-.343 BA and .898 OPS. ) you are on drugs. Gerrit Cole is having so-so year. Definitely not worth it.

Yankees Trade Deadline Idea

Trade

Pirates get Miguel Andujar, Dustin Fowler, Chance Adams, Chad Green, and Jordan Montgomery

Yankees get Gerritt Cole

bwright0628

1.) 10 May 2017 04:38:37
The Yankees aren't going to get a top level starter by giving up lesser prospects. Teams will demand their best available, and rightly so.


2.) 10 May 2017 11:59:41
Yanks will be on the prowl for an SP. Cole, Quintana and Darvish will be on their radar. May take more than this offer. we shall see.


3.) 10 May 2017 14:01:39
I think this is a case where 4 quarters doesn't make a dollar. Yanks need to include a real headliner like fraizer along with a few other solid prospects to get a pitcher of Cole's caliber.


4.) 10 May 2017 19:52:26
As much as the Yankees would go for him and be willing to give up someone good, trades don't include that many players. It's more of a 2 for 1 kind of thing.

The White Sox turned down better offers in the offseason. They certainly won't take that for Quintana in the regular season.


2.) 21 Mar 2017 11:32:40
exposfan, you claim the white Sox received better offers for Quintana in the offseason. I'd love to hear what they were. If that were the case than don't you think they would have done it? From my understanding the Pirates wouldn't include Glasnow, Meadows, or Taillon. The Astros wouldn't include Bregman, Martes, or Tucker. Just like the Yankees won't include Torres, Frazier, Rutherford, or Kaprielian. All for the same reason, Quintana is very very good but he is not an ace. Getting 5 of the Yankees top 10-15 prospects is a pretty nice haul considering they have either the best or second best farm system in the game depending on who you talk to.


3.) 21 Mar 2017 20:47:04
My wording was wrong, my apologies.

Their asking price for Quintana has been much, much higher than this.

Joe Musgrove, Francis Martes, and Kyle Tucker is what they asked from the Astros. It's clear they want a king's ransom for Quintana.

In other words, they asked for the #20 and #35 best prospects in all of baseball (per MLB. com) . The offer you're suggesting is the #47 prospect and a bunch of throw-ins.

You might think it's worth it, but clearly the White Sox don't. (By the way, there are 10-15 other teams who could top that offer) .


4.) 21 Mar 2017 20:48:05
Also, consider this from Ken Rosenthal:

"Over the past three seasons, Quintana has averaged a fWAR of 4.9. His 14.6 fWAR since 2014 ranks eighth among pitchers in that span, just behind Jon Lester and right in front of Johnny Cueto and Madison Bumgarner. In those terms, the asking prices for Quintana almost sounds reasonable. "

He's an ace. And people in baseball view him as one.


5.) 26 Mar 2017 15:10:09
Bwright, those teams wouldn't include packages of all those prospects TOGETHER not necessarily individually as a headliner. The only ones I've heard are off limits are Bregman and Meadows (understandably) .

SI just came out with their "Most valuable trade rankings" and Q ranks 28, only two spots behind Chris Archer. If you don't want him on the Yankees that's fair but someone is going to pull the trigger before the deadline this year and you better believe a top 25 prospect will be headlining that package.


 

 

07 Mar 2017 18:45:32
Yankees All-Prospect Team

I'm including Sanchez, Bird, Severino, Austin, and Refsnyder because they are still really young and none of them have even played a full MLB season.

Position Players

C-Sanchez
1B-Bird
2B-Mateo
3B-Andujar
SS-Torres
LF-Frazier
CF-Rutherford
RF Judge
DH-Austin/Refsnyder

Rotation

Severino
Kaprielian
Sheffield
Adams
Abreu/Acevedo

Is this the most impressive group of young talent in the MLB? Of course that's not to say they'll all pan out because that's impossible.

bwright0628

1.) 08 Mar 2017 11:51:54
Looks like a really good team. Maybe they'll win their 30th World Series with this team.


2.) 14 Mar 2017 04:35:09
The fascination with Rob Refsnyder is puzzling. There were almost know scouts who actually thought he had the tools to be a great prospect.

Now, he's almost 26, and he has done nothing and continues to be on the outside looking in.

Moral of the story: quit roping him in as some great prospect. He never was. He never will be.


3.) 14 Mar 2017 14:56:51
exposfan, I don't think Refsnyder is remotely near a top prospect. He is the worst prospect listed here easily. He can't defend at any of his positions and lacks other basic skills as well. However he has shown the ability to hit at every level he's been on so I figured it was a toss up between him and Austin for DH who also doesn't have a true position. This is just my idea of the Yankees All-Prospect Team. I didn't say all of them were elite.

Moral of the Story: Relax.


4.) 15 Mar 2017 01:02:44
I never said "top prospect". I said quit calling him a "great prospect". He's a career AAAA guy. It just puzzles me why every Yankees fan lists him as some future asset. He'll be DFA'd before the season ends.

i'm surprised you don't have everyone going to the Yankees.


2.) 18 Dec 2016 12:29:47
BATMAN! your comment is stupid since never in any of my posts have I had the Yankees signing all the major free agents. Just a couple of minor fillers. Like they are in desperate need of rotation help and Ross offers a low risk high reward option. Also they have expressed interest throughout the Offseason in adding a lefty middle reliever and specifically been connected to a reunion with Boone Logan.


Also I forgot to add Mike Napoli to my list who I believe will go back to the Indians.


3.) 19 Dec 2016 02:39:15
Yes you do.

Do the Yankees have the best collection of young talent in the MLB now?

bwright0628

1.) 19 Nov 2016 18:53:44
It certainly looks as if they do, but will they all pan out is another question.


2.) 19 Nov 2016 19:57:08
That's supposed to be Jorge Guzman not Jesus.


3.) 20 Nov 2016 02:05:33
of the 30 or so guys u posted, how many will actually pan out? odds are only 5 or 6.

severino may be nothing more than a bullpen guy. refsnyder isn't good. judge screams bust as does tyler austin. no one wants billy mckinney. lots of those pitching guys will never even see major league innings.

everyone brags about their teams youth. it rarely ever plays out how they hope.


4.) 21 Nov 2016 01:54:00
They would be better off trading refsnyder Austin McKinney fowler heller holder and wade for some pitching.

Instead of just telling me how awful this is. Tell me why. Provide details about why value in trades or free agent signings aren't fair or accurate. Or tell me if they aren't a good fit for teams. Anybody can just say something is terrible. Tell me why.


And don't tell me that the Yankees are holding on to their prospects and getting younger as if I don't know that. They would still have Sanchez, Bird, Judge, Frazier, Austin, Green, Mitchell, Cessa, Wade, Fowler, and others. Also, Tanaka, Pineda, Lynn, Arenado, Castro, Didi, Romine, Torreyes, Hicks, Ackley, Betances, Strickland, and Warren are all 28 or younger. That is still a very young team with a lot of prospects. They're prospects for a reason. They don't all pan out. There's no harm in trading some away for some proven MLB talent.

I'm not 100% sure but didn't you already post this?


2.) 09 Nov 2016 01:52:59
For some reason I don't think the giants will do the Headly trade . They have more needs bullpen be an example.


3.) 09 Nov 2016 01:54:29
I think the Yankees want to get younger.

5.) 09 Nov 2016 03:41:38
We've told you the other 2-3 times you posted this why it was terrible, and here you are, reposting it.

Methinks whatever I say will go in one ear and out the other.


6.) 09 Nov 2016 05:18:04
No way the Rockies trade Arinado.


7.) 09 Nov 2016 05:19:12
Relax you guys are just saving money so you can sign Harper for 500 million. Would you rather have Arinado with less top teir prospects or Harper and the top tier prospects and just wait until he is a FA.


8.) 10 Nov 2016 00:44:59
The Yanks probably don't have enough money to do this. With all this, they are taking on over 100 million dollars.


9.) 10 Nov 2016 13:00:04
They have the money, its the Yankees you are talking about, however they are trying to reduce payroll to save on the luxury tax. So I don't see them spending recklessly like they have in the past.


10.) 12 Nov 2016 21:49:45
I'd rather have Arenado than Harper.
