David Price
Ben Zobrist

Kyle Crick
Edwin Escobar
Marcus Simien

White Sox:
Joe Panik
Ryan Vogelsong

Probably a long shot here, but why the heck not.


1.) To call this a long shot is understating it.

2.) Very much a long shot. Giants don't have the best farm system, they do have some pitching but that's about it.

Padres send:

SS Johnny Manziel (sign-and-trade)

Dodgers Send:

Clayton Kershaw
Yasiel Puig
Matt Kemp
100M in salary support

Count it good as done!


1.) In your world yes. But in reality no. Manziel isn't even signed to a contract. Nor will he. On top of that he would have to be in the organization for a year before a trade.

2.) Wait this is a joke right lmao

3.) Of course this is a joke. Sign and trade is NBA talk.

"Maybe you don't understand WAR" as he gives an explanation that is completely wrong and misunderstands WAR. Seriously, the irony is too much for me. You're saying he's only accumulatinging WAR because he plays a lot? GTFO with that nonsense. Stop calling people delusional, because you don't have a clue what you're talking about.

As for the trade comparison, the Rangers also took on around $70M of Hamels' contract in that trade, and yet they have up some pretty significant pieces (perhaps the best piece was one of those "marginal prospects" in Eickhoff) . Quintana's ridiculously team-friendly contract will draw a hefty price tag, as will the competition for starting pitchers. I'd say two top 50 prospects plus some organizational fodder OR a top, young MLB piece would be more than plenty. Heck, Matt Moore drew more than he should have, and he's way worse than Quintana.

Also, mitch, I never said he was an ace. I just laugh ghat you condescend and act all arrogant and then cite ERA as means of pitching value/ talent.

No one in baseball uses ERA to value a pitcher. Literally zero teams/ scouts. If you want to act better than everyone, at least show us you know the basics.

Mitchsam, from 2012-2016, Quintana is 12th in WAR amongst all pitchers. Of all those in the top 15, Quintana and Bumgarner are the only ones with reasonable contracts.

Look at what the Rangers gave up for Hamels who had (has) a massive contract and similar numbers in the same span.

Quintana is the best value pitcher on the trade block, by a long ways.
