That would be a very, very quick no from Washington. I doubt they'd even do a Bryant for Robles swap, let alone added talent.

Massive risk / return with both Greene and Hinds. Cleveland is more risk averse than this deal appears.

Cubs intend on shedding payroll. The above trade has them adding over 20M in salary, and it's also a pretty bad trade for Contreras.

31 Dec 2019 16:30:33
Their issue isn't shedding payroll for 2020. It is being able to pay Bryant, Rizzo, Heyward, Baez and Contreres beyond next year. They cannot afford those guys plus the pitching staff. They will need to move at least one of the big names and my bet would be Contreres since they have Amaya and Caratini. Ramos and Lowrie are FA's at the end of the year and give the Cubs more money to spend on their young players.

31 Dec 2019 18:17:57
Why would they trade Kyle Schwarber for a guy they gave up on in 2018?

31 Dec 2019 20:02:16
The Cubs spent over 230M last year, and will likely have to spend even more, as they hav higher salaries for guys like Bryant (7M raise), Rizzo (9M raise), Hendricks plus smaller raises to Contreras, Quintana, Baez and other arb-eligible players. And now, in this trade, an additional 20M.

The Cubs are taking on over 15M, once all the salaries balance out, just to get rid of Contreras. I'm unaware of how that helps them pay for the players.

02 Jan 2020 15:25:33
Theses trades don’t make any sense for the Cubs.

30 Dec 2019 18:42:17

NYM- Starling Marte
PIT- Andres Giminez, Franklin Kilome, Desmond Lindsay

The Mets get a true CF who can hit atop the lineup. The Pirates get quality young players to rebuild.

NYM- Wilson Contreres
CHC- Wilson Ramos, Brandon Nimmo, Jed Lowrie, David Peterson

This trade makes sense from both sides. The Cubs are worried that they cannot afford all their young stars and the Mets are looking for a young C. Ramos and Lowrie give the Cubs MLB players that can keep them in contention while adding payroll flexibility since they're free agents at the end of the year Nimmo gives them a replacement for Schwarber since he is bound to get moved to the AL. Also with Amaya ready in another year, Ramos can be the stop-gap. The Mets are deep and can afford to give up some prospects as well.

30 Dec 2019 13:26:49
Why would the Brewers even consider that Hader trade? They have to take on an underwater contract AND get marginal prospects for an elite reliever?

01 Jan 2020 18:43:05
How about a trade where NY doesn’t give up literally their entire farm system?

No way Tribe makes that deal.

27 Dec 2019 17:23:43
For which trade?

27 Dec 2019 17:24:58
That Kris Bryant trade is not very good. Cubs will want more. And Bloom said he won't add top prospects to move David Price. He certainly wouldn't do so if he also has to take on Dexter Fowler's contract.

27 Dec 2019 20:27:37
Houston has been extremely reluctant to trade Tucker. Is Clevinger the type of pitcher than changes this? Maybe, but they are probably also losing Springer next offseason, so they might trust their in-house options along with a couple of low risk, short term signings/ trades given their prior successful reclamations.

20 Dec 2019 06:37:16
Padres trade Abrams, patino, morejon, Baez, Potts, and head

Indians trade lindor and clevinger.

Agree1 Disagree15

21 Dec 2019 23:17:28
Clevinger is one of the best pitchers in baseball and still under team control for another 3 seasons.

Lindor is one of the best players in baseball and still under control for 2 seasons.

To get BOTH of them in a trade, I doubt you want to know the name of the player Cleveland will insist upon.

(I'll give you a hint: none of these players would headline that deal) .

21 Dec 2019 23:26:15
I'll put it less cryptically: the Indians have insisted on BOTH Gavin Lux and Dustin May for just Francisco Lindor alone.

So, here's the "Trade for Lindor and Clevinger: Choose Your Own Adventure" Game.

You have to give up one of the following: Fernando Tatis, Jr. or Chris Paddack.

If Tatis, then:

Choose a complementary piece: Patino, Lucchesi, Trammell, Abrams, Lamet

If Paddack, then:

Choose at least TWO of the above complementary pieces.
PLUS choose one other add in: Campusano, Morejon, Naylor, Yates, Weathers, Potts.

In other words, it'll be a monstrous haul, and nothing close to the trade you've presented here.

23 Dec 2019 07:27:38
Go to the chris sale trade, 2,4,8 prospects were dealt for 3 years of service. Lindor has 2 years of service so don’t even go there with the whole tatis or paddack will have to go. For Lindor only they’d be happy to get the padres 2 and maybe 5 prospect, if not lower. Get out of here with that stuff.

23 Dec 2019 13:09:19
Ryeguy, I know they teaching reading in SoCal, so do yourself and read.

The trade wasn't just for Lindor. It was Lindor and Clevinger. That's going to require way, way more than anything you'd ever be comfortable. It's going to be a huge name, and almost undoubted a name that's already in an MLB uniform. Plus a couple of high prospects. The Indians would immediately look like they came out like bandits in the trade.

Also, I wouldn't be so damn sure of the Padres system. Their previous "Lindor trade guy" (Urias) was traded for a mediocre pitcher and a 4th OF. It doesn't seem that teams are all that impressed with some of the guys Padres fans love.

23 Dec 2019 17:22:49
My point is that you would have said the same thing if the trade was only for Lindor . I know your way of talking, you’re the know it all who really knows nothing. Was just trying to prove a point that it wouldn’t take that much to land Lindor like everyone has been saying simply if you go back to the sale trade. I think they have an offer on the table that they’re considering, they just trying to squeeze just a little more from teams with the whole “send us your best offer” message.

23 Dec 2019 21:49:52
You also insisted that Lindor could be had for Luis Urias, who was later traded for a really laughable return. So it's not evident that your evaluation of the Padres system is based on reality.

Look, I'm well aware that the Padres won't trade Paddack or Tatis. But if the Indians are demanding Lux AND May for just Lindor, I'm not sure the Padres have a package of minor leaguers that really matches that if it doesn't include one of those two.

And you keep saying to go back to the Chris Sale trade. You realize that took the #1 prospect in baseball, right? I mean, the above package doesn't even have the Padres #1 prospect (Gore) . And the Indians have far less reason to move Lindor than the White Sox had to trade Chris Sale. The demand will be astronomical, and rightly so.

26 Dec 2019 22:57:13
None of this matters. The Padres won't trade for Lindor.

That would mean A. J. Preller doesn't get to use Profar at 2B, and the hard-on Preller has for that guy is apparent. Profar is the Padres' second baseman.
