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.

Rest of Yankees Offseason

Trade

Tigers get Brett Gardner

Yankees get Justin Wilson

The Tigers get their everyday CF to replace Maybin while balancing out their righty heavy power hitting lineup with a speedy lefty that plays gold glove defense.

The Yankees were supposedly in on Blevins, Logan, and Romo until the end but weren't willing to meet their price tags so this gives them a cheaper alternative they are familiar with while shedding Gardner's salary and clearing the path for Clint Frazier while clearing at bats for Chris Carter to maximize his 40 HR potential until Frazier is ready.

Holiday isn't an everyday OF anymore. Carter will platoon with Bird at 1st with Austin out but Holiday should be the teams primary DH in my opinion.


2.) 22 Feb 2017 19:57:59
I agree with you CrazySull but Holiday played LF last year for the Cardinals when healthy. In an ideal situation he would be the teams DH but I think it's worth it to get Carter's power bat in the lineup rather than Gardner who is declining fast. Also having Carter platoon with Bird isn't ideal for Bird's development. He needs to play everyday and get consistent at bats to be groomed into their everyday first baseman of the future.

Whether you think the fit is there for the Yankees or not, do you think the trade is fair in value?


3.) 22 Feb 2017 22:07:31
if the yankees were going to trade Gardner they would have done so already.


4.) 23 Feb 2017 02:10:11
There are no takers for Gardner, his declining skill set, and his contract.


5.) 23 Feb 2017 04:19:13
I don't think his contract is the problem, it just has 2 years and 26 million, if the yankees were to pay half or a bit more, someone would take him.


6.) 23 Feb 2017 14:28:54
Your trying to make the Yankees rebuild and be a contender at the same time. It usually doesn't work. Remember the goal is to win a championship, does that look like a championship caliber team?


7.) 24 Feb 2017 04:51:24
yes the Cardinals did play him in LF but they are an NL team so they don't have a DH and they also tried him at first. I am not saying that he can't play LF I am just saying he would be a defensive reliability and they have better options. And platooning Carter and Bird is smart because of Bird struggles against leftys you don't want him to feel bad about himself and that's when you can plug Carter into the lineup.

Rest of Yankees Offseason

Trade

Orioles get Brett Gardner

Yankees get Brad Brach


There was a lot of talk about this earlier in the offseason but with Jay Bruce instead of Gardner. Gardner to me is a better fit for the Orioles because they are looking to improve they're defense in the outfield according to Adam Jones and he would give them a true lead off hitter as opposed to the free swinging Adam Jones. Also the Yankees clear the path in LF for Clint Frazier.

I think with this team could be one of the best home run hitting teams in the league this year. You can probably expect 20+ Home Runs from Bird, Gregorius, Castro, and Holiday. Also 30+ from Judge, Sanchez, and Carter. With that amount of power coming from 7 of your 9 starting position players and that deep, strong bullpen. They could make a playoff push without breaking the bank and staying the course of their plan to get younger and save for the 2018-2019 offseason.

Foster is not getting 10 mil and the Orioles would get way more for Brach, overvalued Foster and way undervalued Brach.

So let me get this straight zammer, you'd rather have a guy who can't stay in the Majors than Gardner? Are you delusional?


7.) 12 Jan 2017 18:14:07
Blue Jays fans continually prove they would rather watch the ship sink than see a winning team, or at least a competitive team, put together.

If Pompey were as good as Gardner, the Blue Jays wouldn't be in desperate search for an OF right now.

1.) 21 Mar 2017 03:32:50
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.

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.

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.

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.

I agree with you CrazySull but Holiday played LF last year for the Cardinals when healthy. In an ideal situation he would be the teams DH but I think it's worth it to get Carter's power bat in the lineup rather than Gardner who is declining fast. Also having Carter platoon with Bird isn't ideal for Bird's development. He needs to play everyday and get consistent at bats to be groomed into their everyday first baseman of the future.

Whether you think the fit is there for the Yankees or not, do you think the trade is fair in value?

Mateo is ranked as the number 18 prospect in baseball by MLB. com right behind Gleyber Torres at 17 and Clint Frazier at 15. So he is right in the same category with them. He just doesn't get all the recognition Torres and Frazier do because Torres just tore up the Arizona Fall League and received the MVP and Frazier is in AAA knocking on the door. Rutherford was a first round pick in last year's draft that many thought would go in the top 5 but didn't because teams were worried about contract disputes. Tate was the number four overall pick in the draft the year before. Adams just had a breakout year and his stock is ok the rise. Andujar also impressed at the Arizona Fall League just not to the extent of Torres. Lastly, Refsnyder has hit at every level and could be a nice utility player for years to come. If that's not quality I don't know what is.

I was about to post this same trade myself. I love it for both teams. The Yankees get rid of Gardner to make room for Frazier and get back an innings eater for a year in a rotation that has so many uncertainties. The Nationals get a CF without giving up the prospects they would for McCutchen and instead using them to possibly get Sale to strengthen their rotation.
