Is Jacoby Ellsbury free? Because even Ellsbury for free has negative trade value.


2.) 31 Mar 2018 16:10:16
Ellsbury is negative value which is why I included Florial for taking him on. Florial has otherwise been called untouchable by the organization. Gardner is a valuable expiring deal. Andujar has a big ceiling. Montgomery is a big league tested young controllable arm. And Shreve is just a throw in Lefty Reliever to replace Watson. I thought this was a pretty good return for an often injured Bumgarner with one year remaining on his deal. He is going to be wanting a big contract and the Giants are going to be going into a rebuild and trying to unload their older veterans.


3.) 02 Apr 2018 14:25:11
do you live in fantasy land, bwright? there is ZERO chance the Giants trade Bumgarner.


4.) 02 Apr 2018 22:23:42
And if they do, the name coming out of Cashman's mouth better be Gleyber Torres. And the rest of this group.


5.) 02 Apr 2018 23:57:27
yes most certainly, Torres, Andujar, Sheffield, Adams, Florial, probably Frazier.


6.) 09 Apr 2018 12:32:30
Mid-season trades at the beginning of a season? Good thing most here aren't real GM's or well they wouldn't be for long.

Yankees Trade Idea

Tigers get Estevan Florial, Jordan Montgomery, Albert Abreu, Domingo Acevedo, and Thairo Estrada

Yankees get Michael Fulmer

bwright0628

1.) 31 Jan 2018 04:46:43
Seems about right to me, but I don't think the Yankees would be willing to part with that much, just based on what they offered for Cole.

1.) 10 Jan 2018 01:05:21
new year, same bwright. That package probably would not get the Machado, Gardner for Corbin straight up won't happen, D-backs would probably want salary relief and prospects. The Ellsbury trade makes little sense.


2.) 10 Jan 2018 01:21:55
I'm sure the Giants would send some new rakes for the grounds crew for half of Ellsbury's contract.

The Yankees are going to have a nearly impossible time moving him.


3.) 10 Jan 2018 15:56:22
I think the Yankees are going to run into a situation where they have to either sell Gardner for pennies on the dollar, or just bite the bullet and cut Jacoby. They're going to run out of room on the roster for all those guys, and most deserve playing time.

Machado Trade Idea

Orioles get Brett Gardner, Jordan Montgomery, Estevan Florial, Tyler Wade, and Miguel Andujar

Yankees get Manny Machado and Darren O'Day

bwright0628

1.) 14 Dec 2017 19:11:57
I'll be honest, you did good with proposed Abreu trade, but this is a miss. Not what the Orioles are looking for.


2.) 14 Dec 2017 23:02:42
How can I make it better? I though the logic was pretty sound. I know the rumor is that they want 2 controllable pitchers but that doesn’t mean that’s what they’re going to get. Montgomery is a young controllable pitcher who is big league tested. Andujar and Wade are MLB ready replacements for Machado and Hardy. Florial is a high ceiling prospect that should be ready for the big leagues just as Adam Jones’ contract runs out. And Brett Gardner is a nice one year rental that is a great club house influence and will play Gold Glove Left Field as well as provide a quality lead off hitter which is a void the Orioles haven’t been able to fill for a long time. O’Day is just a way to offset Gardner’s salary. If the Orioles are trading Machado than they are rebuilding and they don’t need a high priced reliever.


3.) 15 Dec 2017 04:32:20
The Orioles owner has been so adamant against the Yankees getting Machado. He's being so careful that he doesn't want to trade him to a team that would so much as trade him to NY themselves.

Knowing that, the Yankees would need to offer Torres, Judge, Sanchez, Bird, and Severino.

Realistically, I don't envision a way the Yankees could trade for him.


4.) 15 Dec 2017 04:34:07
Machado won't be traded to the Yankees. Their owner said he won't deal with them.


5.) 15 Dec 2017 05:32:24
Yeah I read that too after I posted this. However, hypothetically would it be a fair deal if that wasn’t the case?


6.) 15 Dec 2017 18:51:15
It's not a fair deal for Machado either way.


7.) 16 Dec 2017 17:36:16
I'm a Yankees fan, but there's no way in hell this happens.


 

 

07 Dec 2017 17:11:19
White Sox get Estevan Florial, Miguel Andujar, Tyler Wade, Tyler Austin, and Jake Cave

Yankees get Jose Abreu


White Sox add some quality prospects to an already loaded system for Abreu who doesn't fit in with their timeline.

The Yankees get their everyday DH and middle of the order bat who also provides insurance at 1B with Bird being injury prone who is on a very reasonable contract for his production.

bwright0628

1.) 07 Dec 2017 18:01:19
Maybe, I guess.

I think the White Sox can get a better quality over quantity trade. Also, moving 5 players from the 40-man roster in a trade is almost completely unlikely.


2.) 07 Dec 2017 18:38:21
thestatbook, that is a fair point but Florial isn’t on the 40 man roster. Even four is still a lot though.


3.) 07 Dec 2017 22:04:22
I will say, I think it's a better trade than what you've come up with lately. I just don't know if the White Sox would want a bunch of lottery tickets, or more of a sure thing for Abreu.

Personally, I'd take multiple guys, but that's just my opinion.


4.) 07 Dec 2017 23:10:06
Okay then going along with what you said, what about adding someone like Acevedo or Abreu and taking out Austin and Cave. That’s a little bit more quality and a little less quantity. They’d be getting two top 100 prospects in Florial and Andujar plus Wade who is extremely versatile which is very valuable in today’s game and he just won the batting title in triple A. Plus a high upside arm in Acevedo and Abreu who aren’t far from being Major League ready.


5.) 08 Dec 2017 14:35:24
By auality, I mean a better player headlining.

Think Chance Adams.


6.) 09 Dec 2017 01:49:59
I agree with statbook, the White Sox are looking for quality over quantity at this point. They wouldn't be interested in Austin bc they have Matt Davidson and they have guys like Leury Garcia and Alen Hansen to play the utility role that probably best suits Wade.

I think Chance would have to be included (Adams, Andujar and Guzman? ), but a deal that has Florial, Sheffield?, Andujar, and a flamethrower like Acevedo or Guzman would be intriguing too just because the organization loves guys that near 100mph with the FB.

But if Chance is not included, are the Yankees going to trade 3 or 4 of their top 10 prospects for a guy who's only controlled for 2 years?

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.

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.


4.) 19 Dec 2016 11:52:11

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.

Keep Bryan Mitchell, Chad Green, and Luis Cessa at AAA to start the season for Rotation Depth.


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.


4.) 09 Nov 2016 02:03:28
Unbiased, He post this every week.


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.

I think they would because Fulmer has 3 more years of control left than Cole. Fulmer has 5 more years whereas Cole only has 2. Also Fulmer has been better than Cole the last two years so he is worth more. I think Torres is off limits for just about anyone but I believe Florial would have to be in play for a pitcher of Fulmer’s caliber and affordability.
