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.

14 Dec 2018 07:55:22
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.

Dodgers trade:
Julio Urias, Kenta Mazda, Alex verdugo

Indians trade:
Danny Salazar and Adam Plutko

Agree3 Disagree10

13 Dec 2018 17:11:29
LA hasn’t pulled the trigger on Vedugo alone for Kluber or Bauer let alone him AND Urias and Maeda for considerably less.

13 Dec 2018 17:24:06
I think Urias is a lost cause and it dumps Kenta’s contract with the rise of Ross Stripling.

13 Dec 2018 21:08:12
Urias might be a lost cause but Maeda has an extremely team friendly contract. Don't know if $3 million a year is a dump.

14 Dec 2018 07:41:51
Maeda’s contract isn’t just 3M. It’s only that if they cut him. The incentives boost it quite a bit.

He’s still super valuable though.

A deal with Atlanta to help both teams

Atlanta receives:

-OF/3B Nicholas Castellanos (1 year of control)

-LHP Matt Boyd (4 years of control)

Detroit receives:

-OF Drew Waters (Braves #8, MLB #91)

-RHP Bryse Wilson (Braves #9, MLB #96)

-OF/2B Travis Demeritte (Braves #22, MLB UR)

This deal gives the Braves a middle of the order right fielder to pair with Freeman, Donaldson, and Acuna and a young, controllable, lefty starter to give thier top pitching prospects more time to develop instead of rushing them. It also allows the Braves to move on from Nick Markakis, save money as opposed to Brantley/Pollock, and without blocking prospect Christian Pache (Braves #6, MLB #68) in the long-term. It also gives Detroit two much need positional prospects as well as another pitching prospect to pair with Mize, Manning, Faedo, Burrows, and Funkhouser.

Agree2 Disagree5

12 Dec 2018 19:30:40
The Brewers wouldn't do that Santana trade, to be honest. They'll find other takers.

I don't know why a Panik/ Santana deal wouldn't benefit both parties, especially if the Giants are signing Harrison. They then get to keep their pitching depth (which Zaidi says he wants) and get an OF upgrade, for cheap.

12 Dec 2018 22:27:35
Melancon has full no-trade clause and I don't think the Giants acquire Fuller just to flip him for Santana. I think the keep him.

13 Dec 2018 21:15:20
so after being busy trading to make the team better. you're going to be selling mid season?

14 Dec 2018 04:05:01
He has them trading to get younger, which in a way is better.

I don't see this happening in any way.

11 Dec 2018 22:57:56
I see no way this works for Miami or the Mets.

The Mets want more than just Realmuto for Syndergaard, but the Marlins are going to want significantly more. Their return is comically low, bordering upon insulting.

I don't see why the Yankees are remotely necessary for this trade.
