I know this is an in division trade but let me know if this would we be decent.

Orioles are looking for a ton of pitching, Yankees still want machado.

yankees get: 3B Manny Macado and Hunter Harvey

Orioles get: Justus Sheffield,
Chance Adams, Ben Heller, Giovanny Gallegos, Chase Headley and Dellin Betances

You really need to stop already. You have zero clue to what you are doing.


2.) 10 Dec 2017 19:45:49
Yeah not nearly enough for Machado, especially in their division. Why does Baltimore also have to include one of their top pitching prospects? Makes 0 sense.

Hey batman, why don't you show us how it's done?

Giants and Yankees roster:

Just an idea: Giants lost out on Stanton and otani so they should load up farm system with players ready for MLB

Yankees get: Madison Bumgarner, Joe Panik and Tyler Beede

Giants get: Clint Frazier, Billy McKinney, Justus Sheffield, Nick Solak, Miguel Andujar, Ronald Torreyes and Chase Headley

tundrakid92

1.) 09 Dec 2017 19:46:43
For the last time, Bumgarner won't be traded.

And if he does, expect the Giants to demand Torres + 1-2 young MLB guys. It literally will have a negative percent chance of going through unless that's the return.


2.) 09 Dec 2017 20:17:57
That won't be happening. The Giants aren't rebuilding, at least this offseason. If they tank again in 2018, then this might be something they consider.

Reds and Yankees:

Reds get: Estevan Florial, Miguel Andujar, Domingo German and Ronald Torreyes

yankees get: Scooter Gennett, Eugenio Suarez and Homer Bailey


Convincing the Reds to part with Suarez and Gennett would be the hard part. They're good players who are controlled through 2020 and 2019. however if the reds get a chance to vastly improve their own farm system they might bite, plus moving Bailey would mean getting out from under the $49 million he's still owed.For the Yankees, the primary benefit would be substantial upgrades to a lineup that was already good enough to finish second in runs and first in defensive efficiency in 2017. Their rotation would also get just what it needs behind Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka and Sonny Gray: an arm good enough to use, but not good enough to call off their pursuit of Japanese wunderkind Shohei Otani.

tundrakid92

1.) 29 Nov 2017 03:18:43
There's no way the Yankees do this. Those three reds players packaged together have very little, if any, trade value.


2.) 29 Nov 2017 07:25:26
Suarez has value, but not with Bailey’s contract. And I doubt the Yankees would do this.


3.) 29 Nov 2017 14:30:07
I agree, Suarez has value, but Bailey has negative value and gennett is close to zero, so this package isn't worth much.


4.) 29 Nov 2017 16:57:23
The Yankees would want nothing to do with this. Castro is as good if not better than Gennett. He was an AllStar this year and was having a great season before he got hurt. Suarez is a nice player but they have Torres on the way to take over for Headley at 3B and Suarez would just be blocking him. Nobody wants Homer Bailey and his contract. The Yankees currently have Severino, Tanaka, Gray, Montgomery, and Chance Adams is MLB ready with Justus Sheffield right behind him. They are the favorites for Ohtani and if they really want Insurance they can just resign C. C. on a one year deal. Awful deal from their perspective.


5.) 30 Nov 2017 19:35:04
Over the past two seasons, Gennett has been better than Castro in nearly every offensive category. He's also significantly cheaper than Castro. I would take Gennett over Castro any day of the week.

That's not the issue with this deal. The issue is Homer Bailey. Otherwise, it's actually fair.

It's cool I'm drunk too.


2.) 27 Nov 2017 03:08:48
Give it up Tundra! Myers can't play LF in Yankee Stadium. Bird has 20 HR's in 304 career ABs (perfect Yankee Stadium swing-.921 OPS in postseason) and higher OPS than Myers. Naylor wouldn't even make Yanks. Was suspended and traded by Marlins who gave up on him. So, you want Yanks to give away LH's Gardner, Bird and Hicks from Yankee Stadium for RH Myers, Naylor and good lefty reliever in Hand. Did you know that Montgomery (6th in ROY voting) had 18 starts last year with 2 or less earned runs? Only Kershaw as LHP had more (Keuchel also had 18.) You're also giving away 3 CF's in Gardy, Hicks and Florial and asking Frazier to bat leadoff (nowhere near ready to bat leadoff) and play center (also not a CF. ) So, they weaken defense in LF, CF and lose at least 30 HR's PLUS solid LH starter PLUS #78 OF prospect PLUS 2 live arms in Mitchell and Tate.
Why waste everyone's time with this nonsense.


3.) 27 Nov 2017 04:49:09
Wait, you think Greg Bird is better than Wil Myers? Because he hits home runs? Over the past three seasons, they have the same wOBA (.338), but Bird's OPS is only 4 points higher.

So that begs the question, which would you have, the guy with a .004 lead in OPS (over the past three seasons), or the guy with a marginally worse OPS but significantly better track record of health?

You just went on and on about Bumgarner's "questionable health" but here, Bird, who might have the most questionable health of any starting position player in baseball, is of better value than Myers? I'm not buying it, and the numbers certainly don't support your position.

Please, we already have Chi Sox who'll say anything so long as it sounds good and makes his team look good. We don't need another. Please at least try and sound rational.


4.) 27 Nov 2017 15:12:13
Not sure why the Padres would do this? Gardner would not start over Margot. The Padres have a ton of arms in the minors waiting to be called up, i doubt they would want to trade their all star 1b, 1b of the future, and all star closer for a bunch of guys who wouldn't be top 10 prospects in their own system.


5.) 30 Nov 2017 01:45:30
Bird has "questionable health? " Bumgarner hurt his shoulder in a cycle accident. Bird fouled ball off his ankle. He came back healthy and had .891 OPS down stretch. Also has 1.183 OPS at home in post-season career. Myers has never made post-season. Even with Bird's .450 OPS while playing on ankle that needed surgery. Bird has higher OPS of .793 in career compared to Myers' .768. Without those injury numbers-Bird has .880 OPS. Myers last 3-his best years=.789. Comparing them is ridiculous. As for health, Bird played full seasons in '13, '14 and '15. In 2014 and 2015 Myers played in less than 100 games combined ( majors and minors) . How is that a better track record of health? Value- are you kidding me? Myers $4.5 mil/ yr (22 mil in 2020)-Bird half a million. Nuff said? Bumgarner came back with diminished "stuff. " Research the numbers! Pitcher coming off shoulder injury!


6.) 01 Dec 2017 01:43:20
Wow. So many terrible arguments, I don't know where to begin.

1. Bird has played 94 games, in his career. That's it, over 3 seasons. Wil Myers played in 60 more games last year alone. Over the past three seasons, Myers has an OPS of—you ready for this—.789. That's .004 points lower than Birds. So I ask you, which would you have? A guy with a .793 OPS over 94 games or .789 over 372? Obviously, you want the guy who has stayed on the field.

2. If you can't understand the nuance of healthy, I'm not sure you're worth debating. Obviously, talking about a track record of health is something we want to reference with recency bias. It's irrelevant to mention that in 2014, Myers missed time for colliding with another OF. He's played in 4 times as many games since his injury than Bird has played his entire career. It's the same as citing Rich Hill's "injuries" from years ago. Bird hasn't been healthy recently, and Myers has. That's the scope, or nuance, of the argument. Please try to keep up.

3. As for Bumgarner, you mean to tell me a guy coming back from shoulder surgery will have diminished stuff? No shit, Sherlock. How does this pertain to Gregory Bird being better than Myers? If anything, it hurts your case.

4. I love that you've not once mentioned the whole of Bird's 2017 numbers. He was an 86 wRC+, .303 wOBA player over 48 games last year. He was atrocious. For comparison's sake, Mitch Moreland was better than him last year. You instead focused on 14 games of post-season play and a few games down the stretch? (He played 29 games in the second half, 19 in the first) Have you ever heard of sample sizes? You literally suggested he has more value than Myers because of 14 games? I could easily find a string of 14 games in which Wil Myers out-performed Bird over the course of his career (for example, last June and his 1.194 OPS) . Small sample sizes won't convince anyone.

5. Bird's injury history extends FAR beyond a foul ball off the ankle. A shoulder injury in 2015 (which was a recurring issue from a previous injury), a serious ankle issue last season, and the ankle injury. That is the definition of someone with questionable health. Myers collided with a player and has been just fine. Bumgarner got in an accident and experienced normal struggles since returning from surgery. Both of those are injuries players come back from all the time, and neither stem from a lingering issue with their body, but were complete accidents. Bird has had 3 major "non-accident" injuries in 4 seasons. How is that anything but questionable?


7.) 02 Dec 2017 22:10:24
Stat-1. Why don't you include Myers' other 660 AB's? Because it lowers his career OPS to .763, which kind of sucks for a 1Bman. Bird played on an ankle that required surgery. Without that his career OPS is .880. Ask someone to explain it to you that it more than 100 points better than .763.
2.Since Myers was called up in 2013-he has played in over 100 games twice. Myers didn't just miss time while colliding with another OF-he had wrist surgery. Did you also conveniently forget that he also had wrist surgery on his other wrist in 2015? Keep up-2 wrist surgeries in back-to-back years. Bird had 3 consecutive years (2013-2015) where he played over 100 games.
3. When I questioned MadBum's health relating to a SP's shoulder-you brought up Bird's health-try to keep up. (your post-27november2017-04:49:09)
4. How could you mention Bird's whole 2017 numbers? He was playing on an ankle that required surgery. Healthy his OPS was .891. Love how you bring up Myers 1.194 in June-how about the fact that in Myers last 2 healthy years ('16 and '17) he has as many months below .700 OPS as he's has over .700. May, July August 2016 and 2017. That's 6 months out of 12 BELOW .700 OPS. Wait- I can't stop laughing! Enough sample size for you? Mitch Moreland-are you kidding me? Bird's healthy numbers would be 2nd in AL. While Myers was 11th of NL qualifiers. Out of 12! 11th out of 12!
5. Ankle injury is "accident" injury. How was shoulder injury "recurring? " Did he miss any time? When? So, he had ONE "non-accident" injury. When you have no viable argument-make up stuff?


8.) 07 Dec 2017 04:13:30
1. You're considering a rate stat for a guy who's played less than 100 games and less than 400 PAs in his career? Speaking of making any argument you possibly can. OPS only matters if the player is on the damn field.

2. So, let's get this straight, Myers missed time several years ago, and is less valuable. Bird has missed time as of recent, and significant time (he hasn't played in more than 50 MLB games in a season, ever), and yet you'll ignore it? Don't tell me about conveniently ignoring something. Myers' injury was three years ago. Bird's was a few months ago. Is he even healthy? (The Yankees are rumored for multiple 1B, suggesting maybe they don't think he is) .

3. Yeah, you're trying to deny Bird's health issues. This is an actual argument you've continued to make. Please, don't insult our intelligence. Bird hasn't been healthy, at all. Drop the charade and accept it. You continually deny he's been unhealthy, but cite Bumgarner's one injury (by the way, not a significant one going forward, as Giants' team doctors have explicitly stated, multiple times) .

4. Sample size matters. If you think 98 PAs builds an honest picture of what a batter can do, you need to take a statistics class. That's a month's worth of baseball. You literally have tried to build a case for Gregory Bird on a month's worth of baseball. Either you're a con-man (a lousy one at that) or just inept at understanding how to evaluate players. I can't figure it out.

5. "Bird started the 2015 season with Double-A Trenton and was promoted to the Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre RailRiders of the Class AAA International League during the season. In May, he experienced a shoulder injury"

Then

"Bird suffered a recurrence of his right shoulder injury during the 2015-16 offseason, which was diagnosed as a torn labrum. Bird underwent successful surgery, and was ruled out for the entire 2016 MLB season"

So to answer your questions, how was it recurring? Because it was an injury that came up more than once in his career (less than months after he injured it the first time) . Did he miss time? Yes, the entire 2016 season.

Also, os trigonum is not an injury that stems from a fracture. It's an actual syndrome and can lead to significant injuries down the road. Bird had an accessory bone removed from his foot. This was something they found because of the hit-by-pitch, but not something that stemmed from it. It's a procedure that should help the guy, but it hasn't done him any favors. I stand by my "three non-accident injuries" or we can go with "two" and just count the recurring shoulder injury as one, it's up to you.

I think Greg Bird will be fine. But if you ask who has more value: a guy with 98 PAs and missed a ton of time RECENTLY due to injuries, or a guy who's been extremely healthy RECENTLY, everyone in baseball will pick the second guy.

A cross town trade idea involving the mets and Yankees.

Yankees would receive SP Matt Harvey

Mets would receive, 3B Miguel Andujar, 1B Tyler Austin and P Jordan Montgomery.

Why I think it's a good idea:

1. Andujar is a highly regarded prospect and could be the mets future long term 3B option.

2. Montgomery can fill right into mets rotation. Harvey needs a fresh start.

3. Yankees will sign Otani and give the Yankees a nice rotation of Tanaka, severino, Harvey, otani and resign sabathia

tundrakid92

1.) 24 Nov 2017 20:19:43
You forgot about Gray in the rotation. Harvey has a little to no trade value right now. Nobody wants his injury history and off the field problems. If he was still a cy young caliber pitcher he would be worth the headaches but he hasn’t been for over two years. Yankees take a hard pass.


2.) 24 Nov 2017 21:05:29
That's right gray too, what about switch Harvey with
Matz and add a prospect coming to the Yankees?


3.) 25 Nov 2017 04:12:41
I don’t think the Yankees will be going after pitching this offseason outside of Ohtani because of his tremendous skill set, age, and affordability. Sabathia could be back on a one year deal for insurance as well but that’s about it. Let’s say they do sign both or even just one. That leaves you with Severino, Tanaka, Gray, Ohtani, Montgomery, Sabathia, and Chance Adams is just about big league ready with Justus Sheffield not far behind. Guys like Luis Cessa and Bryan Mitchell provide depth. Then you throw in Domingo Acevedo and Albert Abreu who just tore up the Arizona Fall League. Also guys that like Dillon Tate and Jorge Guzman have high upside. I really don’t think the Yankees would be interested in one of the Mets injury prone starters. Particularly Harvey and Matz who haven’t been all that good when healthy in recent years.

Yankees and rangers trade:

Yankees get: jurikson profar
Rangers get: Brett Gardner and chasen Shreeve

tundrakid92

1.) 10 Dec 2017 06:53:55
That’s definitely an overpay for the Yankees.


2.) 10 Dec 2017 18:01:15
How is it an overpay? The Rangers are taking on at least $13M, which the Yankees would likely want to get rid of after moving Stanton. (No one is taking Ellsbury) .


3.) 11 Dec 2017 13:21:14
Profar is not worth giving up a speedy power hitter like Gardner and giving up a nice young lefty arm in Shreve. It’s not worth it for the Yankees.


4.) 11 Dec 2017 14:35:12
The value isn't in the player, it's stuck in a contract. They'll want to move some money, and no one is taking Ellsbury. Gardner may be their best hope to clear some salary.

angels and yankees trade:

Yankees get:CF: Mike Trout, 1B C. J. Cron and P Jose Suarez

Angels get: 2B Starlin Castro, 3B Gleyber Torres,P Jorge Guzman , P Chance Adams, 1B Greg Bird and Clint Frazier

potential lineups

Angels: CF Clint Frazier
LF- Justin Upton
DH- Albert Pujols
2B- Starlin Castro
SS-Andrelton Simmons
3B Gleyber Torres
1B Greg Bird
RF Kole Calhoun
C Carlos Perez

Rotation
1. Garrett Richards
2.Matt Shoemaker
3. Chance adams
4. Jorge Guzman
5. J.C. Ramirez

Yankees lineup:

LF-Brett Gardner
SS-Didi Gregoriuos
CF- Mike Trout
RF- Aaron Judge
C- Gary Sanchez
1B CJ Cron
DH- Aaron Hicks
2B Tyler Wade
3B Miguel Andújar

Rotatio 1. Luis Severino
2. Sonny Gray
3.Masahiro Tanaka
4.Jordan Montgomery
5. Justus Sheffield

Both teams give up a lot, however i think this trade helps both sides. it gives the angels a staple at multiple postion for years to come and 2 potential future cy youg award winners. this trade gives the yankees one of the top outfield duo in the game and at a young age. next year year yankees have money coming off the books and can still go for machado. and the yankees still have some top pitching prospects to add to their rotation.

This is why most MLB fans despise Yankee fans.


2.) 06 Dec 2017 12:59:29
I’m a Yankee fan thestatbook and I wouldn’t even consider this. I’d rather keep the team we have now and wait for Harper and Machado.


3.) 06 Dec 2017 22:02:39
Newsflash: if you want a guy like Mike Trout, think to yourself, "what's a package I absolutely would never want the Yankees to give up for any player? "

Then double it.

I promise you, this wouldn't be remotely close enough for Trout.


4.) 07 Dec 2017 14:42:19
so what your talking like 10 players for Trout?


5.) 07 Dec 2017 15:07:19
Or 4-5 really, really, really good ones.

Their top 3-4 prospects, plus Sanchez and Severino.


6.) 07 Dec 2017 15:11:42
Moral of the story: There’s not a snowball’s chance in hell the Yankees land the best player in baseball and not give up the most insane return we’ll ever see. We can debate all day what that means, but it’s not going to be Torres, an overpaid 2B, and a bunch of lottery tickets.

It’ll be multiple established, young MLB players, Torres, and every top prospect that team has.


7.) 07 Dec 2017 17:01:44
I personally don't see the Angels trading Trout. I don't see him signing a long term contract to stay there. So after 2020 he will be free agent. These pipe dream trades need to stop.


8.) 07 Dec 2017 17:59:47
I don't either. But to even move the needle, the Angels will want the world. This notion that the Yankees, or any team, can acquire premium talent without giving up something that would really, really hurt.

It gets old and these people never learn from the many, many comments that come on here that these are bad ideas. I think that's why it gets frustrating.


9.) 07 Dec 2017 18:17:08
yeah I know what you mean some aren't learning, and without naming anyone in particular, keep posting the same thing over and over again.

A few years back the mets turned down a trade with the cubs for starlin Castro. They refused to give up their prized prospect Dillion gee. Do you guys think the mets would be interested in a trade for starlin Castro at this time?


Mets would receive: Aaron Hicks and Starlin Castro and Miguel Andujar

Yankees would receive: Gavin Cecchini and Wilmer Flores

Why would the Yankees even consider this, it is terrible move for them.


2.) 02 Dec 2017 04:32:58
I think Starlin could be a good fit on the other side of town, but this is a terrible trade for the Yankees. Why are Hicks and Andujar in the trade?


 

 

28 Nov 2017 15:23:38
I think Boone or Woodward would be good managers for the Yankees. Any thoughts ?

It's beyond silly that the Yankees, who want to win another WS, are even entertaining the idea of a manager with no coaching experience.
