Todd Frazier 3 years $36 million

Alderson said the Mets are still going to make one "significant" move in the infield. I think Frazier or Walker would be the signing. I'll stick with Frazier due to his RH power.

2B- Asdrubal Cabrera
CF- Michael Conforto
LF- Yoenis Cespeses
RF- Jay Bruce
3B- Todd Frazier
1B- Adrian Gonzalez
C- Travis d'Arnaud
SS- Amed Rosario

C- Kevin Plawecki
IF- Wilmer Flores
IF- TJ Rivera
OF- Juan Lagares
OF- Brandon Nimmo

SP- Jacob deGrom
SP- Noah Syndergaard
SP- Matt Harvey
SP- Steven Matz
SP- Zach Wheeler

LR- Seth Lugo
MR- Paul Sewald
MR- Josh Smoker
LH- Jeremy Blevins
7th- Anthony Swarzak
SU- AJ Ramos
CL- Jenrys Familia

This is a sneaky team that could easily contend in the NL if they stay healthy. The key word is "IF" but they're talented enough to make some noise this year like they did in 2015.

You didn't need to include the entire 25-man roster simply for one roster move. We can figure it out.

19 Jan 2018 16:54:27
I think he was giving the full roster in order to make the point that the team could wind up pretty good this year. With the amount of posts that are in here daily, I don't mind having more in depth posts to read.

TB sends RP Alex Colome (3 years of control), SP Jake Odorizzi (2 years of control)


MIN sends OF Eddie Rosario (4-5 years {might be super 2} of control), 2B/SS Nick Gordon (MILB), SP Tyler Jay, and C Mitch Garver (MILB)

Agree8 Disagree13

18 Jan 2018 04:36:40
That'd be a hard pass from Minnesota.

17 Jan 2018 05:10:18
Reds get: Yellich
Marlins get: Winker, Amir Garret, Robert Stephenson. They could also put in schebler to sweeten the deal, I think he is going to fall off though.

Reds get an OBP machine to put ahead of Votto for the next 5 years at a contract that they can even afford. The marlins get an immediate replacement in Winker and two MLB ready pitchers with very high upside.

Agree10 Disagree9

17 Jan 2018 14:24:27
That's not terrible, but I think the Marlins are going to want to be blown away for Yelich. This seems like it would be the exact kind of package the Pirates are looking for in return for their players though. It might be too much, but they could probably knock one of those pitchers off the trade and make it work out.

17 Jan 2018 14:56:47
I know there are no signs the Pirates would trade him but they might as well go full rebuild. What about Schebler, Stephenson, Garret for Marte?

17 Jan 2018 15:30:09
Not terrible, but I think that package would be topped by multiple teams. The Reds have a solid farm, but I don't think they are in the position to get in a bidding war with prospects.

18 Jan 2018 14:39:26
I don't know how many teams would be jumping to beat that deal right now. PED suspensions hang heavy, and I think I'd need to see another year of his normal production before I'm throwing too much to Pitt. If a team like the Reds really wants him, you're in the perfect buy low scenario.

18 Jan 2018 20:18:43
The problem with the reds front office is that they overvalue some of these overhyped prospects. The time to cash in on some of them is now, I think they are one good hitter with a OBP over 360 and a decent starting pitcher away from contending in the central. I know the chances of them trading for one of those guys and signing a guy like Lynn or Cobb are not good but I think that's all they would need.

14 Jan 2018 14:36:03
NYY acquires: 3B/ 2B Josh Harrison
PIT acquires: 2B Nick Solak, RHP Domingo German.

Agree11 Disagree15

14 Jan 2018 21:29:17
Maybe Andujar instead of Solak. This is a light return for such a versatile player.

11 Jan 2018 19:14:00
Royals get Juan Lagares

Mets get Kelvin Herrera

Haha, you wish.

Chicago White Sox/Miami Marlins

White Sox Get:
Christian Yelich OF
Wei-Yen Chen LHP
Junichi Tazawa RHP
$16.5 Million

Marlins Get:
Lucas Giolito RHP
Blake Rutherford OF (#40 MLB)
Dylan Cease (#58 MLB)
Zack Collins (#7 White Sox System/#6 Catcher)

The Marlins get 2 controllable SPs, a young outfielder who, even after a down 2017 season, still has tremendous upside, and a young catcher who would eventually replace Realmuto who likely will be traded as well. They also continue to shed money as they get rid of roughly $50 million total while still getting the good prospects. They essentially get 3 top 100s (top 60 actually) and a guy right on the top 100 cusp while getting rid of Tazawa's bad money in 2018 and Chen's horrible contract.

With 3 years remaining for Chen, the Sox pay his entire 2018 & 2019 salary while they get back $16.5 million in the deal to pay for 75% of his 2020 owed money.

While Yelich's value should warrant a Jimenez, Kopech, or Moncada type of player, there should be something said about his desire to get out of Miami and what it does to a franchise when your best player badly wants out. Jeter could jump on this deal adding what would be instantly his 4 best prospects while shedding a substantial amount of money.

Agree9 Disagree16

10 Jan 2018 22:12:55
This is fair.

Although I can't imagine the Marlins diminishing Yelich's value this significantly by attaching bad contracts to him. If they think they can get someone like Moncada/ Jimenez/ Kopech, they aren't losing that kind of player just to shed money.

12 Jan 2018 04:33:24
Thought the White Sox were rebuilding? Getting Yelich get you more by trading him in a few years then who you did trade. I think they should trade Abreu before trading for stars.

13 Jan 2018 23:31:35
That's a valid assertion, but the big thing with Yelich is that he's controlled through 2022. Abreu holds value now as an accomplished veteran in the clubhouse and I don't think they have ruled out resigning him after 2019. Hahn and Co. will have a very strict (high) price on him. Boston makes a lot of sense for Abreu, but they don't have the prospects at this point with the White Sox looking for quality over quantity.

18 Jan 2018 05:56:53
The question is, what good does Abreu do on a rebuilding team?

The value of veteran leadership/ clubhouse guys is hugely overstated, and even if you buy into it, you can get a guy like Mike Napoli for pennies on the dollar. You don't need to hold onto an expensive, valuable player for the sole purpose of being a clubhouse presence.

If I'm the White Sox, I'm pushing Abreu out the door for a package similar to what the Pirates got for Gerrit Cole: a handful of guys with MLB experience and a combined 12-15 years of team control remaining. (Side note: that was a brilliant, absolutely brilliant trade by Pittsburgh) .

It's not that I think Abreu lacks value. But I don't see what advantage he creates on a rebuilding White Sox club. You don't pay a guy $13MM because he's good with the younger players.

That's something the White Sox would do. Oh wait.

22 Jan 2018 21:24:08
It's not just that he has some generic value as a veteran. Moncada and Robert both looked up to Abreu before they were even in the organization and the Sox have put a ton of money and effort into them. They're all Cuban. We've disagreed before on the importance/ value of veteran leadership, but I think in this instance it's specific, as they're compatriots. $13MM really isn't anything to the Sox this year, either.

And again, I don't think they've ruled out resigning him. He most definitely could be their DH when they plan to contend again.

I don't know that a Gerrit Cole-type package is out there right now. Chavis would seem to be the headliner for the Red Sox to move, but he doesn't really match up with what the white sox need positionally or fit the timeline given who they already have.

10 Jan 2018 02:59:57
I have heard some lately about the Rangers trading Profar and Choo to the Diamondbacks for Grienke I kinda doubt this will happen I think the Rangers would have to give up some more what do you guys think?

Agree5 Disagree13

10 Jan 2018 04:36:30
Very old rumor from early December. Rangers want more
money coming with Grienke then Dbacks want to send.

Agree10 Disagree12

10 Jan 2018 01:05:21
new year, same bwright. That package probably would not get the Machado, Gardner for Corbin straight up won't happen, D-backs would probably want salary relief and prospects. The Ellsbury trade makes little sense.

10 Jan 2018 01:21:55
I'm sure the Giants would send some new rakes for the grounds crew for half of Ellsbury's contract.

The Yankees are going to have a nearly impossible time moving him.

10 Jan 2018 15:56:22
I think the Yankees are going to run into a situation where they have to either sell Gardner for pennies on the dollar, or just bite the bullet and cut Jacoby. They're going to run out of room on the roster for all those guys, and most deserve playing time.

09 Jan 2018 18:10:48

Scenario where Cole ends up in Houston while retaining Tucker & Whitley (unlikely):

Houston Gets:
Gerrit Cole RHP

Pittsburgh Gets:
Derek Fisher OF
Yordan Alvarez OF/1B
J.B. Bukauskas RHP
Cionel Perez LHP

Agree15 Disagree10

07 Jan 2018 01:48:26
TOR acquires: OF Andrew Mccutchen
PIT acquires: 2B Devon Travis, LHP Ryan Bourcki (AAA), RHP Zach Jackson (A+)

Toronto needs an outfielder and have a surplus of INFers, Pirates likely need to retool and get a 2B and some intriguing young pitchers.

Agree9 Disagree15

07 Jan 2018 07:57:28
Think the pirates would be looking at atleast for one of the Jays top 100 like Alford.
I love Travis if he's healthy, but not sure if he will be fully again.

09 Jan 2018 19:42:27
This would probably be a great move for Cutch. He would wind up playing one of the corner OF spots, which would definitely help his degrading defense, and having Pilar next to you would help anyone. You also want a rangy defender for away games like in LF at Yankee Stadium, or RF in Fenway. He's not a great CF anymore, but he's still capable of that.
