machado trade idea.

First of all people are saying that machado would only net a few ptching prospects because of the remaining 1 year on his contract. I do not believe that is true, look at past trades with stars having one year left, machado is a superstar that would bring in a nice return.

Second, people don't believe the orioles will trade machado. I disagree why loose machado to free agency and get nothing in return. Trade him now, while he is in high demand, don't wait until trade deadline and risk him getting hurt.

Third, The yankees have the best prospects to offer the orioles, the orioles owner should look past the hatred towards the yankees and make the team better.

So that being said yankees trade with orioles.

Yankees get: 3B Machado
Orioles get: SP Chance Adams, SP Albert Abreu, SP Justus Sheffield, OF Clint Frazier, 3B Miguel Andujar, SS/2B Thairo Estrado

Now this is an overpay.

Although it's probably the only scenario in which Angelos will accept a deal from the Yankees.

07 Jan 2018 01:54:52
You an O's fan?

07 Jan 2018 03:01:58
If the Yankees got machado, andujar is blocked. Clint Frazier is expendable now, with hicks Stanton and judge, even if Gardner or ellsbury leaves through trades, the Yankees still have Estevan Florial. The Yankees give up three good pitching prospects, but their rotation is set for a little bit. They can go into next offseason re loadimg their farm system and pitching prospects.

07 Jan 2018 21:34:11
"If the Yankees got Machado, Andujar is blocked. "

Dear God, Yankees fans have lost their minds. Machado is ten times the player Andujar is.

08 Jan 2018 19:01:02
what i meant by that if yankees get macahdo, andujar is blocked my machado at 3rd, so use him in the trade package.

09 Jan 2018 14:52:14
I think you overreacted to the comment about Andujar, he never said he was good as Machado or near his level, just he would be blocked if they acquired Machado.

11 Jan 2018 14:19:47
I think that Machado has gone on record on saying he wants to move back to shortstop so the third base blockage might not be as big of an issue. However, what would you do with Gregorius because he's under team control through 2020? Unless the Yankees either trade Gregorius, who has taken off since joining the Yankees, or convince Machado to play 3rd Base long term, assuming he signs an extension, I don't see a scenario where the Yankees can acquire Machado

05 Jan 2018 07:46:06
Mets get Andrew McCutchen

Pirates get Zach Wheeler, Brandon Nimmo, Marcos Molina

Manny Machado to Cubs

Baltimore gets Cubs 13th Prospect Alex Mills
Cubs 15th Prospect Cory Abbott.

Agree1 Disagree30

02 Jan 2018 18:34:48
The Orioles would not accept this offer. Machado will bring a much bigger return than that, prospects that ranking higher than the teams 13th and 15th best prospects.

02 Jan 2018 20:24:24
Not even close to what the O's would want.

02 Jan 2018 22:44:58
Those are like pieces D and E in a trade for Machado.

03 Jan 2018 08:40:55
Machado has 1 year of rental left. He's not worth more the a few mid level pitching prospects. If he was he'd be traded by now. If he had 2 or more years. He would get you 3 top prospects in the teams top 10. Maybe even in a teams top 7.

It's a given fact he's not worth much.

03 Jan 2018 14:09:12
You need to look at a few past trades, Such as the mid season trade of Chapman to the Cubs, that was half season rental. CC Sabathia brought in a haul for a half a season in 2008. Zack Greinke to the Angels in 2012 brought back a big haul for half a seasons. Matt Holliday before the 2009 season to the A's, a one year rental, brought the Rockies a huge haul, Cliff Lee to the Mariners and then the Rangers in 2010 brought in huge hauls for a one year rental. These prove you don't know much about value.

03 Jan 2018 14:52:52
Keep dreaming buddy.

03 Jan 2018 16:20:27
This is comical, coming from an obvious Cubs fan (check his previous trade ideas out) .

How is he not worth much? Far worse players have been traded as rentals for significantly more. Heck, look no further than the Cubs a few years back (doubt you were even a fan then) when they'd trade rentals.

Machado is going to come at a package something like Russell/ Happ/ De La Cruz/ Clifton.

03 Jan 2018 16:25:28
While we're at it, let's just have them acquire Clayton Kershaw for a couple minor-league relievers.

He's a rental, so he's not worth much, right?

Add Bryce Harper to the list of guys with no value.

03 Jan 2018 16:32:22
Baltimore's front office and ownership is extremely weird to me. I can't see Machado getting dealt at all.

03 Jan 2018 18:35:07
O's want what you guys are saying. Has Machado been traded yet? Nope, a top 10 hitter maybe even top 5. Can't get deals done? Cause teams don't want to give up their farm system for a rental.
If he had 2 or more years remaining I would trade the farm and Happ, Russell, and Schwarber for him.

03 Jan 2018 19:19:46
I'll tell you right now if Machado is traded to the Cubs, Addison Russell will be an Oriole.

03 Jan 2018 19:59:23
Apparently you didn't read my examples of one year and half year rentals getting traded. So again Sabathia, Holliday, Beltran, Chapman, Lee (twice), Greinke, David Price when he went to the Blue Jays. I would also point out that if Machado isn't trade its because of their owner, he's clueless, he should realize his team is about to go down hill. They don't have a good farm system either.

03 Jan 2018 22:22:40
Wait, so you acknowledge he's a top 10, "maybe top 5" hitter, but don't think he's worth anything more than a couple of relief pitchers?

I can't tell if you're actually this clueless, or this is an act.

04 Jan 2018 00:17:35
It is believed that the Orioles are seeking two controllable starting pitchers for Machado, who is set to become a free agent after the 2018 season. That price seems to be too steep for Machado.

04 Jan 2018 04:02:49
you do realize if he is traded the Orioles will get at least 4 prospects for Machado.

04 Jan 2018 05:01:29
Also, Torres was tradeable cause we had Russell, Baez, and Zobrist. Plus Bryant at 3rd. I keep reading the experts say Russell will get his head on straight and hit 25+ homers and 90+ RBIs, Baez will keep getting better. Zobrist a World Series hero in 2015 with KC and with us in 2016. Might be hard to trade a Maddon guy. So let's say Russell, Happ, and 3 pitching prospects. Way to much. Russell and Happ can fill in 2 positions and combined more power then Machado. Yea Machado is the best but I'd rather have Russell and Happ over Machado.

04 Jan 2018 05:13:35
It's hilarious that a Cubs fan mentions Russell, but can't even consider that they acquired him in a trade for, get this, a RENTAL! Zobrist, he was acquired by Kansas City as a rental, for an exorbitant price, as well. They traded Torres, for a rental.

Seriously, you have literally no clue how this works, and you should honestly stop.

04 Jan 2018 11:16:59
Sonny, everyone on this site will be against you. This is the most pathetic trade I've ever read on here and the sad part is you're actually serious. Common man, Machado is literally one of the best players in the game, ONLY 25 years old, entering his PRIME years. He will get back two controllable arms plus some. Do you even watch baseball or follow the game at all? You're just embarrassing yourself at this point.

04 Jan 2018 15:06:52
Another thing you don't address is where Machado would play? Can't dh, they are the national league. They have Russell and Baez for short, and Bryant for 3rd.

04 Jan 2018 15:38:02
According to a source, the Orioles will continue to listen to interested teams, but they don't plan on moving Machado for a discounted package. That could change come July if Baltimore is out of the race, but for now, the asking price remains high.

04 Jan 2018 15:56:19
Baltimore will be out of the race. They have close to no pitching.

04 Jan 2018 16:14:56
Wait, now you are acknowledging he will bring a huge haul, and you think your puny offer is a huge haul? Cubs don't have any top 100 prospects right now, the Orioles would surely want a few of those.

04 Jan 2018 21:09:18
Sonny: "According to a source, the Orioles will continue to listen to interested teams, but they don't plan on moving Machado for a discounted package. "

Also Sonny: Here's a hilariously discounted package for Machado. I think it's fair.

06 Jan 2018 02:49:32
Lets not forget Guy's that although Machado is a rental, he probably won't be traded to a team that won't be resigning him. There will some agreement in there. So his value is obviously quite high based on age and quality.

01 Jan 2018 21:18:59

Rox have a two year window left.
One stop shopping is available but for what price. Purlpe Row mentions a trade between the two but not who would be leaving. It will hurt trading prospects for Sox players.

J. Abreu
A. Garcia
J. Minaya
one of K. Smith/O. Narvaez
Sox eat 15 mil salary

D. Dahl
B. Rodgers
R. McMahon
Colton Welker
Ben Bowden

Sox are selling everything but get several young hitting prospects and one LHP that has ? but possibility.

Rox will receive a solid #2 catcher and a reliever, both have years of control. Abreu and Garcia will provide cost efficient additions with the Sox ability to take on salary. Rox maintain payroll goals.

02 Jan 2018 18:31:07
No way the White Sox take that deal.

02 Jan 2018 23:04:11
I think they would most definitely take that deal.

03 Jan 2018 02:07:18
That’s quantity over quality. That’s not the White Sox MO.

03 Jan 2018 02:15:58
I’m sorry you are right. White Sox probably do take that deal.

03 Jan 2018 07:23:23
No way rockies do this, window is a little more than two years if they can resign Arenado and Blackmon (lemaheiu can be replaced (free agent next year) )

03 Jan 2018 16:34:21
That would be a huge haul for the Sox. That package is literally quality and quantity.

01 Jan 2018 13:27:32
Rays trade Chris Archer to the Phillies for prospects Mickey Moniak,Franklyn Kilome and Tom Eshelman.

Agree12 Disagree13

01 Jan 2018 15:11:26
I don't know.

01 Jan 2018 16:33:26
I think it's close. But Tampa Bay should ask for more.

01 Jan 2018 20:19:04
If I'm Philly, I wait to make this type of trade until I see more improvement from the ML club. Some people are optimistic about them in 2018, but I think they should see what they have with guys like Crawford, Kingery, Alfaro, and Quinn and full seasons from Hoskins and Nick Willams to see how good they are going forward. For right now, I think Arrieta, Cobb, or Darvish would be better acquisitions.

02 Jan 2018 01:04:47
Agree with Chi Sox.

30 Dec 2017 23:17:08
A good trade has, at its core, the ability to match the needs of two teams with their surplus available quality talent. The Indians and the Brewers appear to "match".

Brewers receive:

Danny Salazar or Mike Clevinger
Jason Kipnis
Francisco Mejia

Corey Knebel or Josh Hader
Lewis Brinson
The Brewers Competitive Balance B pick in the 2018 draft.

The Brewers are in need of major league pitching. Danny Salazar, when healthy, is as good as anyone that takes the hill. Mike Clevinger is a young and capable SP that truly showed he is a MOR SP in the second half of 2017. Jason Kipnis is now healthy. When healthy (e.g. 2015 & 2016), he put up 4.0+ WAR seasons. Francisco Mejia is a young canon armed back stop on the verge of a ML career. His bat and arm define him as a player.

The Indians are looking down the double barrel problem of losing both Andrew Miller and Cody Allen following the 2018 season. Adding Knebel or Hader to the pen a year early, makes all the sense in the world. Adding Lewis Brinson to the current roster and the coming stable of young OF'ers (Brad Zimmer, Greg Allen and recent acquisitions: Holmes/Benson/J_Rod/O-Gonz) gives the Tribe a bright future.

I posted 2 comments on EricHosmerFan's post. Only the second one showed up. WTF?

30 Dec 2017 02:52:51
Orioles get J. T. Realmuto
Marlins get Tim Beckham and Chance Sisco.

Agree16 Disagree13

30 Dec 2017 14:43:45
At the very least, this is better than a lot of your old proposals I saw.

04 Jan 2018 05:00:15
No, this is actually very bad. Realmuto is a top 5 catcher in the game and the marlins will want prospects back, not a mediocre 27-28 year old short stop.

29 Dec 2017 03:50:16
Saw a Bleacher Report article about trade predictions so I'm going to make packages for the players mentioned

Giants acquire Billy Hamilton
Reds acquire Heliot Ramos and Joan Gregorio

A's acquire JT Realmuto
Marlins acquire AJ Puk, Jorge Mateo, and Sean Murphy

Astros acquire Brad Hand
Padres acquire Yordan Alvarez, David Paulino, and Hector Perez

Agree4 Disagree16

29 Dec 2017 15:38:41
Yeah, the Giants aren't giving up Ramos for Hamilton. They'll just move a different direction.

30 Dec 2017 00:41:01
No way Oakland does that.

30 Dec 2017 14:02:40
I honestly don't think they'd do it either, but Bleacher Report does for some reason.

30 Dec 2017 17:05:43
Joel Reuter is a buffoon. It’s the main reason I never read B-R.

30 Dec 2017 17:55:47
He didn't write the article I read.

30 Dec 2017 19:45:44
Yes but the thing about bleacher report is the trades they come with are just as ludicrous as some of the post on here. They aren't real experts.

30 Dec 2017 21:56:04
Joel Schafer wrote it, I guess. I though Reuter wrote it.

But as Batman said, B-R is absurd. It's the Buzzfeed of sports news, and the fact they kept some of their guys from their days of being a listicle site shows me they aren't interested in being a serious media company.

I wouldn't take a word of what they say as anything serious.

29 Dec 2017 01:26:47
Angels Get: OF Jacoby Ellsbury, 3B Miguel Andujar, 10m

Yankees Get: 1B/ 3B Luis Valbuena

The Angels get Ellsbury, and while he is expensive, they need a fourth OF and Andujar is a good third base prospect. Valbuena doesn’t have a spot with the Angels and would look good in a backup 1B/ 3B spot with the Yankees, who unload most of Ellsbury’s horrible contract.

Agree14 Disagree11

29 Dec 2017 03:34:42
Honestly, this doesn't make sense for either team. Angels are full in the outfield and third base. They can also easily sign a fourth outfielder for much less. And the Yankees have Bird at first and Torres (eventually) at third.

29 Dec 2017 04:29:03
$10MM still means some team is on the hook for $50MM for Jacoby Ellsbury. I can't envision a scenario in which the Yankees get rid of Ellsbury and not take on at least 75% of his contract.

28 Dec 2017 17:29:22
STL gets Betances
NYY gets Gyrko, Hudson and Machado.

Agree3 Disagree15

28 Dec 2017 18:28:45
WAY too much for Betances.

28 Dec 2017 23:30:22
probably since Betances had a rather inconsistent year with control that would be to much, but if the Yankees were to trade him it wouldn't be enough, they would either want something similar to what Chapman and Miller brought back or more.

29 Dec 2017 01:54:30
Can't see the Cards dealing Gyorko.
