White Sox/Royals

White Sox Get:
Whit Merrifield INF/OF

Royals Get:
Dane Dunning RHP (#59)
Blake Rutherford OF (#77)
Luis Alexander Basabe OF
Konnor Pilkington LHP

If the White Sox get Harper or Machado (or both haha) and want to accelerate this rebuild, Merrifield would be fantastic get. He can literally play anywhere and has 4 years of control remaining. KC is at least 3 years from contention with their spending restrictions.

Merrifield could play either 3rd or center
depending on other FA signings.

Royals get some good prospects - especially Dunning who in all likelihood debuts in 2019.

Yankees get Walker Buehler and Yasiel Puig.

Dodgers get Giancarlo Stanton and Miguel Andujar.

Yankees then go out and sign Bryce Harper or Manny Machado.

someone has pipe dreams.

18 Dec 2018 15:31:27
Why wouldn’t the Dodgers just sign Bryce Harper and keep Buehler?

16 Dec 2018 20:03:27
Indians get Clint Frazier and Miguel Andujar
Yankees get Corey Kluber and Jason Kipnis.

It would take a lot more than that to get Kluber. Plus they aren't looking to trade him now that they shed other salaries.

You’ll have to give up a lot more for Bum.

Random FA signing ideas

Red Sox sign Daniel Murphy. There's rumors there is interest in Brock Holt. If he is moved Murphy would be the ideal pickup for Boston. His bat is still great, even if his defense has deteriorated from not great to less great. I see him more as a 1B platoon with Pearce getting spot starts at 2B, but he would be a good insurance policy for Pedroia as well. Moreland might be worth something on the trade market as there isn't a ton in the way of 1B out there.

Mets sign Grandal.
This one seems too simple to me. d'Arnaud and Plawecki are clearly not the answer for New York. I like Realmuto, but I like Syndergaard AND Grandal more. Those two have arguably been the top two catchers in the league the last few years, both offensively and defensively. The fact Grandal didn't play in the playoffs is cause for some concern, but the Mets could use that in negotiations...and getting TO the playoffs is far from a bad goal for them in the first place.

That would be a comical overpay for Rich Hill. Tony Santillan is actually very good. You won't need to give up a very good player for Rich Hill.

14 Dec 2018 20:40:45
Overpay for hill and jones. And you don’t even have schebler starting over Ervin. Desclafani will also be in the starting rotation. None of this is accurate.

Who would you have 3rd while Gregorius is rehabbing? Bring Castro back to put right on the bench is a waste of space and money. It would be much cheaper for the Yankees to go and sign Neil walker for a 1 year deal to play short. Even better sign Tulo for a 1 year make or break season.

14 Dec 2018 01:52:52
If the three team trade between the 3 teams were to happen it would have already happened. It sounds as if it fell apart quickly. The Abreu trade isn't happening, the White Sox would want more. If they were going to DFA Ellsbury I think they would have already, or they could release him like the Blue Jays did with Tulowitzki. And finally 35 million is about right for Machado, just he probably wants 10 years.

14 Dec 2018 04:04:19
elite_beisbol, Castro would play second, Torres would play shortstop, and Machado would be at third until Didi came back from injury and then Castro would just be nice depth once he came back.

BATMAN!, I agree that the three way trade probably would have happened already if it was going to but I was just wondering if you thought the idea was good in principle. I only suggested the DFA for Ellsbury because he doesn’t have a spot on the team and he can’t just magically disappear so I didn’t know what to do with him. And I’m curious as to what you think the White Sox would want for Abreu. I think that’s a pretty good return. He’s not young, he’s a horrible defender and he’s a one year rental. Also, I’m sure Machado wants 10 years but he also really wants to be a Yankee and they aren’t willing to go to 10 years for him and I’m not sure anyone else is either after his postseason antics.

Chicago is not trading abreu.

14 Dec 2018 12:48:27
waylon, they probably will trade Abreu at some point between now and July 31st. If they can get more prospects, they will trade him.

18 Dec 2018 00:18:59
The White Sox would take that in a heartbeat for one year of Abreu.

18 Dec 2018 20:37:27
Thank you Chi Sox.

Padres get Noah Syndergaard

Mets get JT Realmuto and Manny Margot

Marlins get Morejon, Luis Campusano, Eustery Ruiz, Michael Baez, and Jorge Ona.

Agree3 Disagree9

13 Dec 2018 19:11:17
So the Padres only have to give up Adrian Morejon and Many Margot as elite "prospects" to get Syndergaard? They'll have to give up a lot more.

At this point, I'm not sure Margot even starts ahead of Juan Lagares in CF.

13 Dec 2018 21:21:14
according to, morejon is 46th and baez is 57th overall, ruiz is 17th in the padres system, campusano is 24th, ona just recently dropped off the list, but all of them would be ranked much higher in the marlins system.

Margot is only 24 years old still with 4 years of control left and is a plus defender.

14 Dec 2018 04:02:56
And Syndergaard still has 3 years of control, along with being a top 20 starting pitcher in baseball.

Margot isn't that good. He's a glove-first outfielder. wRC+ of 85 in over 1000 plate appearances in his career. You can find controllable glove-first OF on almost every team in the game right now. Margot has upside, but he's done nothing of note in two full seasons to earn value.

The rest of that package is okay.

But the Mets and Marlins aren't going to let the Padres get away with leeching on a deal of this magnitude, especially if they are getting Syndergaard out of it.

14 Dec 2018 16:03:39
I agree with Stat. That's not nearly enough for the Padres to give up. Even with Andujar being a guy who shouldn't sniff the NL, I would rather him than Margot. A one in one out Syndergaard for Realmuto shouldn't be happening, and the other player (s) involved need to be good. Margot still has potential, but not to the same level as he did when Boston moved him to San Diego.
