Guys, you aren't getting Luis Castillo for anything short of an elite, controllable player and probably a top 50 prospect as well.

Adding in Suarez as well? Yeah, Mets would need to include Francisco Alvarez AND Ronny Mauricio, just to begin the conversation.


2.) 03 Feb 2021 14:11:01
At the beginning of the offseason I'd agree with you.
But so far the major trade didn't get packages like you are saying.
Lindor, Darvish, Snell, Arenado didn't get back top prospects
Teams who need to dump salary are taking lesser players.


3.) 03 Feb 2021 16:50:23
Lindor is a rental.
Darvish is old and expensive.
Snell is on a 3-year deal that is moderately expensive.
Arenado is crazy expensive.

Castillo is still under team control for three seasons and the Reds have zero reason to move him.

And for what it’s worth, the Rays got a really good return on Snell.


4.) 03 Feb 2021 17:28:14
Castillo isn't a salary dump, either.

Trading Castillo would represent an opportunity for the Reds to get more youth in their system and try to rebuild a core.

If they want to dump salary, they'll likely start with Sonny Gray, Suarez, or even Moustakas.

But trading Castillo for a lesser return doesn't make any sense.

NY Mets Moves:

Trade with Cubs
Cubs get
JD Davis
A. Rosario
D. Peterson
M Vientos or B. Baty

Mets get
Bryant (fee agent after this year)
Yu Darvish
C Kimbrel (take on his full salary - 2021 16 mil + 1 mil 2020 buyout)

Cubs can use salary relief to resign Baez, Rizzo and Schwarber

Mets extend Bryant and have Darvish for this year and 2 more years

NY Mets

I don't fully understand why Mets would look to trade Lowrie with D. Smith BUT I did think of a scenario where it makes sense.

Trade above for prospects and /or salary relief

Use scary relief to sign Brock Holt and J. Iglesias to 1 year deals. This would greatly improve Mets flexibility and defense.
(I also think they should sign 1 more deliver - S Cishek and put Gsellman in AAA for depth)

Lineup
CF - Nimmo
3b - McNeil
1b - Alonso
RF - Conforto
LF - JD Davis / Cespedes
2b - Cano
SS - Rosario
C - Ramos
P

Bench - Solid
Marisnick - OF (defense)
B. Holt - 1b, 2b, 3b, LF, RF (depth / lefty PH)
JD Davis - 1b, 3b, LF (righty PH)
Iglesias - ss, 2b (defense)
nido - C (defense)

Starters
degrom
Thor
matz
stroman
Porcello
wacha (spot start every 3 times through rotation)

Pen
Diaz
Betances
Lugo
Wilson
Familia
Brach
Cishek*
wacha

If they're trading Smith it better not be for salary relief. Lowrie only has 1 year left. I am all for trading Smith with Lowrie, but only if it nets us a quality prospect or bullpen piece.

Houston is said to have interest in Mets P Seth Lugo as a starter.

Not sure why Mets would do this unless they feel they can replace Lugo via free agency.

But - What do you think is a fair trade with Houston, keeoing in mind the Mets needs of CF, RP, SP and 3b?

dan3b22

1.) 31 Dec 2018 21:25:36
Lugo is 29 and has 4 years of team control remaining. I'm sure something revolving around Tony Kemp and Rogelio Armenteros would be pretty good.


2.) 24 Jan 2019 14:31:44
Lugo is a very solid, under the radar pitcher. as Thestatbook said, Armenteros would be a nice fit in a deal, but with the Mets crowded infield, I think that Tyler White (who can play a little bit of the outfield) would be a better fit.

your point?

NY Mets:
There are a lot of position players ailing
Sign Gourriel to play 3b (wright is done)
If walker is out for a while bring up Herrera
Loney is ok while Duda is out
D'Arnaud has to hit when he gets back
Bring up Nimmo to play LF (conforto needs to rest his wrist and deAza is atrocious.

1.) 16 Jun 2016 03:45:43
Gourriel would likely need some time in the minors to polish some things up.


2.) 10 Jul 2016 15:32:03
Wright isn't "done"


 

 

30 Dec 2015 14:16:09
Some low risk / High reward, out-of-the-box bullpen ideas:

1. Cliff Lee
2. Tim Lincicum
3. Brandon Morrow.

dan3b22

1.) 30 Dec 2015 17:26:47
Didn't Morrow resign with the Padres on a minor league deal?

NY Mets

A perfect platoon CF for the Mets would be Corey Dickerson from Colorado (who say they want to trade a lefty batting OF) .

What do you think it would take for the Mets to give for Dickerson?

Easier solution

1. Keep Thor
2. Collect insurance $ for Cespedes for last year of contract
3. Hope Lowrie can be serviable for last year on contract
4. Spike Cano's food with PED's and get him a failed test / lifetime suspension.

If Cespedes doesn't play Mets collect most of his salary on insurance.

Simpler trade would be:
(other pieces may be involved)

Wheeler to Yanks

Andujar to Miami

Realmuto to Mets.
