Philadelphia: Cole Hamels, Jurickson Profar and Jake Diekman

Texas: Franklyn Kilome, Roman Quinn, Francisco Morales, Jhordany Mezquita, and Luis Garcia

Too much or too little?

Agree2 Disagree8

21 Jul 2018 05:20:23
I'd say it's close to fair. Hamels is basically a rental (6M buyout after this season, vs. 20M salary), Diekman is a rental, but adding 2.5 years of Profar would require a pretty decent return.

I'd say the Phillies need to sub in a better prospect to get three upgrades.

15 Jul 2018 16:56:06
Phillies get: Manny Machado, Zach Britton

Orioles get: Maikel Franco, Franklyn Kilome, Dylan Cozens, Adonis Medina, and Ranger Suarez

15 Jul 2018 17:08:43

Phillies get: Manny Machado

Orioles get: Franco, Medina, Kilyome.

15 Jul 2018 17:09:11
Or Just Machado and take out Cozens and Suarez.

15 Jul 2018 17:16:03
Sorry about the repeat.

15 Jul 2018 17:25:04
Normally I would say quality over quantity, but its too much of both in this case.

15 Jul 2018 17:36:35
Would taking out Cozens work?

15 Jul 2018 00:15:48
Yankees Receive:
-RHP Michael Fulmer
-RHP Shane Greene

Tigers Receive:
-OF Clint Frazier
-LHP Justus Sheffield
-INF Tyler Wade
-INF Brandon Drury

Yankees get a controllable, quality starting pitcher and add to what is likely the most dominant bullpen in baseball.

Detroit adds an impact bat in Frazier, Drury to hold down 2B, Wade to take SS if/when Iglesias is dealt or hits free agency, and a top tier pithing prospect in Sheffiled.

Agree8 Disagree14

15 Jul 2018 00:41:39
Can we all stop pretending Brandon Drury is good?

He currently has a wRC+ of 51. If he was a qualified hitter, he's be ranked the third worst hitter in baseball. His value may never be lower, and there's no team that is taking him on as a piece for their controllable pitching unless he's just a throw in.

15 Jul 2018 01:17:22
And while we're talking about putrid hitters, let's talk Tyler Wade. A career wRC+ of 32 (51 in 51 PAs this year) . That's all while being a below-average defender at the various positions he's played.

He holds little, if any, value as a big league hitter. Even as a minor-leaguer, he didn't hit this year (101 wRC+) . The Tigers "interest" in him likely extends to "he's a warm body at a position of weakness". He's organizational filler who they might want to see what he does. But I keep seeing him and Drury floating around from Yankee fans as though they are hot commodities. They aren't.

17 Jul 2018 00:02:14
For further context of how bad Tyler Wade has been, of ALL current MLB hitters with at least 100 career plate appearances, no hitter has a worse wRC+ than Wade. No one. Not even Yadiel Rivera (career 36 wRC+) or Ryan LaMarre (37). He’s currently the absolute worst hitter in baseball.

14 Jul 2018 15:42:56
More trades:

Cardinals get: Josh Donaldson
Blue Jays get: Ryan Helsley, Max Shrock

Phillies get: Asdrubal Cabrera

Agree0 Disagree10

14 Jul 2018 17:22:17
Huge overpay for Ramos and Greene.

13 Jul 2018 19:36:22
Yankees get: Manny Machado, Zach Britton
Orioles get: Estevan Florial, Brandon Drury, Domingo German, Domingo Acevedo, Albert Abreu, Thairo Estrada

Marlins get: Triston Mackenzie, Shane Bieber

Red Sox get: Joakim Soria
White Sox get: Bobby Poyner, Joan Martinez

D-backs get: Edurado Escobar
Twins get: Matt Tabor, Jack Reinheimer, PTBNL

Agree7 Disagree6

13 Jul 2018 20:00:30
The price on Barraclough seems more than fair. I don’t know if the Indians would do it.

The Fulmer trade is too light, but other than that, I think these seem reasonable.

13 Jul 2018 22:39:23
Upon further investigation: the Machado trade is a massive overpay. The Yankees (or whoever gets Machado) will have to give up a good prospect or two, but it's not going to be that much.

14 Jul 2018 15:43:38
I think Baltimore would ask more from the Yankees because they are in the same division.

14 Jul 2018 17:18:48
They possibly would as for more for that reason, but not that much think quality over quantity.

14 Jul 2018 17:22:48
They can ask. But nobody should give that for two rentals.

16 Jul 2018 13:21:14
Not both McKenzie and Bieber but a deal could happen between the Tribe and Marlins.

12 Jul 2018 18:57:51
NYY acquires: 3B Manny Machado
BAL acquires: OF Clint Frazier, RHP Nick Nelson.

Agree4 Disagree18

12 Jul 2018 20:44:59
If this is the best offer the Yankees give, I guess they'll enjoy seeing him play elsewhere.

13 Jul 2018 19:38:34
If that's all it took then he'd be a yankee already. It'll take more than that.

19 Jul 2018 20:44:56
Stat-they traded Machado for #84 prospects plus lesser ones. Again you show that you don't know anything much.

21 Jul 2018 04:58:01
Or it shows I don't think Frazier is that good?

I can't tell if your constant coming at me is cute or creepy. At least buy me dinner or something.

21 Jul 2018 15:00:29
I'm waiting for you to call out Yankees2018 for saying the exact same thing. Go on.

23 Jul 2018 19:57:07
Yamkees2018 is not a wannabe know-it-all and condescending like you. I told you before. I rarely post unless I see someone being an asshole like yourself. Again I may disagree with him, but I don't need to rant and rave like an immature child. Again you misjudged another trade. Are you ever right?

24 Jul 2018 04:19:51
“Unless someone is being an asshole”

The irony is strong with this one.

24 Jul 2018 04:21:00
Also, you called me an asshole, relentlessly come at me, and yet I’m the child?

Grow up, dude.

12 Jul 2018 17:19:13
Nats Deadline

It's possible if WSH falls to about 10 games back (currently 6) by the deadline, they could move expiring players and look towards next year.

WSH- Alex Verdugo, Dennis Santana, Dustin May
LAD- Bryce Harper

WSH- Logan Shore, Yerdel Varges
OAK- Gio Gonzalez

WSH- Cionel Perez, Jairo Solis
HOU- Kelvin Herrera

WSH- Junior Fernandez
STL- Daniel Murphy

Agree3 Disagree7

12 Jul 2018 17:56:43
If Harper goes on the market (he won't), think of whatever the price is for Machado, and likely add.

Now, before anyone jumps on me, I don't think he's worth more than Machado, and I don't think he's as good, but the Nationals will.

12 Jul 2018 18:03:36
Also, the Nationals aren't going to get way more for Herrera than what they paid for him.

12 Jul 2018 19:41:57
Harper would bring a lot more in highly unlikely chance the Nationals trade him.

12 Jul 2018 03:29:09
Manny Machado SS/3B

New York:
Justus Sheffield LHP
Thairo Estrada SS/2B
Garrett Whitlock RHP

Agree2 Disagree11

12 Jul 2018 15:53:53
I'll say this, if the Yankees are going to get Machado, it will be in the offseason. I doubt the Orioles would trade him there even if Sheffield is any offer. I also doubt the Yankees would part with Sheffield.

11 Jul 2018 22:22:20
Some trades:

Brewers get Machado, Britton
Orioles get: Corbin Burnes, Brett Phillips, Marcos Diplan

Note: Orioles want young pitching. Brewers have solid young pitching and add in an OF who has no exact role going forward.

Dodgers get: Asdrubal Cabrera
Mets get: Caleb Ferguson

Note: Dodgers get smart and don't overpay for a flashy SS. Cabrera fills in nicely and his versatility plays well for them. Mets get a young pitcher who needs some work.

Red Sox get: Raisel Iglesias
Reds get: Tanner Houck, Darwinzon Hernandez, C. J. Chatham

Note: Red Sox, who've been looking for a significant bullpen upgrade, find one in Iglesias. They pay a hefty price, but manage to keep top prospects who lost playing time for various reasons.

Indians get: Brad Hand
Padres get: Triston McKenzie, Aaron Civale, Luis Oviedo

Note: Padres get a handful of pitching prospects for the best RP available.

Phillies get: Nathan Eovaldi
Rays get: McKenzie Mills, Dylan Cozens

Note: Eovaldi has been brilliant, but health is still a serious concern. Phillies find a bargain and give up a moderate return.

Yankees get: Cole Hamels, Cash
Rangers get: Chance Adams, Billy McKinney

Note: Yankees take on Hamels' salary and in return, gets off light in terms of prospect haul.

Giants get: Corey Dickerson
Pirates get: Sam Dyson, Tyler Beede, Shaun Anderson

Giants get some help at OF for a season and a half, and basically wash the salary with moving Dyson to Pittsburgh. The Pirates get MLB-ready pitching and some projects for Searage to work his magic with.

I eagerly await to see how you all disagree with these.

Agree19 Disagree8

12 Jul 2018 03:22:04
Pittsburgh doesn't do that.

12 Jul 2018 09:43:40
(Clicked reply too early)

Im not sure what the cost on Dickerson would be. Maybe it’s more than the Giants would want to pay. I more or less think he’d be a good guy for the Giants. And they have a lot of young pitchers that the Pirates could work with.

here we go again. while your trade making over the years has slightly improved, these are highly unrealistic. I don't see Cashman doing these as I don't think he would trade 5 players for 2 rentals. Plus Machado said he isn't moving from SS for anyone. Mets asking price is too high for Cashman's liking.

11 Jul 2018 21:57:31
Are you really a Yankee fan? Because you wrapped the future in a very neat box and bow and gifted it to the Mets and Orioles.

Not saying these are fair (the Machado trade is way to much, the deGrom trade seems awfully light), but I can't see Cashman mortgaging the future, especially at the cost of aiding a division opponent and a cross-town rival.

12 Jul 2018 03:40:20
I think I made the team better now and don’t think I gave away their future. They would still have Sanchez, Bird, Torres, Machado, Didi, Frazier, Hicks, Judge, Stanton, Austin, Torreyes, deGrom, Severino, Tanaka, Gray, Sheffield, Adams, Tate, Schmidt, and Sauer all under the age of 30 going into next season. Some are MLB players, some are prospects with high upside but they would still look to have a pretty bright future to me.

12 Jul 2018 17:57:52
The Yankees would still have a lot of young players to build off of. But it doesn't serve their best interest long-term to help the Orioles and Mets by bailing them out with premium young talent.
