Yankees Trade Idea

Tigers get Estevan Florial, Jordan Montgomery, Albert Abreu, Domingo Acevedo, and Thairo Estrada

Yankees get Michael Fulmer

Agree16 Disagree9

31 Jan 2018 04:46:43
Seems about right to me, but I don't think the Yankees would be willing to part with that much, just based on what they offered for Cole.

29 Jan 2018 14:00:05
Recent article indicated that the Indians and the Brewers may be talking a trade that will send Salazar and Kipnis to Milwaukee. The only name mentioned returning to the Tribe was OF Domingo Santana a right handed power hitting prospect. Wonder what other players may be involved.

Agree9 Disagree4

29 Jan 2018 16:16:25
Domingo Santana may be a name that is mentioned, however, he may not be the kind of target the Indians covet. I. O. W., As an OF'er, Santana makes a good DH. Names like Phillips, Hader, and others may be considered. Santana may end up in any deal between the two teams, but he's clearly not the kind of defender the Indians seek.

30 Jan 2018 13:35:08
Agree and believe they [Tribe] more interested in Santana's right handed bat. That being said if they are parting with Salazar and possibly Kipnis there had better be a decent return.

01 Feb 2018 15:28:43
I'd be interested to see what kind of a deal the Mets could put together for that kind of return. Kipnis obviously fills a need for them, and Salazar would give them either more depth in the rotation, or comfort to be able to move a pitcher or two to fill another hole in the infield.

01 Feb 2018 15:42:37
I'd be interested to see what the Mets would be able to cobble together to make a deal here. Kipnis would be an obvious fit, but the addition of Salazar would either give them some solid rotational depth. probably the route they'd want to go considering the injury history of most rotation members. If not, they would then have an area of depth to trade from. The Cubs might be a good trade partner since they have some infield depth. Or they might try to fleece the Marlins for Realmuto like everyone else has.

Brewers: Whit Merrifield
Royals: Brett Phillips

Who says no?

Agree4 Disagree11

26 Jan 2018 21:36:53

-Brett Phillips

-Shane Greene

Phillips has plummeted on the depth chart with the Brewers additions of Yelich and Cain. To push their squad, they need better starting pitching. While I know Greene is a bullpen arm; he can slot in as a setup guy which allows the Brewers to move Josh Hader back into the rotation, giving them a lefty and an upgrade over their current options. The Tigers can finally get a quality outfielder and continue on with their rebuild.

Agree12 Disagree10

31 Jan 2018 18:20:57
This might be a little light still. Greene was one of the better relievers in 2017 especially on a team like the Tigers who had nothing to play for. Considering he is still fairly cheap and controllable through 2020 so the brewers would have to include another prospect or two.

22 Jan 2018 21:14:02
Jays marlins trade.

Jays get Yelich

Marlins get pillar, Carrera, Reid-foley, Danner

Jays upgrade their outfield for the next several years. Marlins get place holder outfielders, and a couple quality prospects for the future.


Agree5 Disagree21

22 Jan 2018 21:24:53
Not even close to what Yelich gets.

22 Jan 2018 22:05:43
Getting one of the top young players in the game without giving up a single decent prospect. How convenient.

22 Jan 2018 22:58:33
And i got a bahahaha for my proposal. As if.

24 Jan 2018 15:03:01
Your's was easily funnier. Stroman in a Yelich trade and STL trading Ozuna.

24 Jan 2018 16:27:36
His was at least slightly realistic.

This was beyond terrible.

24 Jan 2018 22:09:26
Except mine also included Realmuto, one of the best yoing catchers in the game.

I would think the Marlins would ask for two top 100 prospects + a very good young MLB player for those two.

Of course it won't happen but it is fair and good for both clubs.

25 Jan 2018 17:41:56
Yelich and Realmuto talks involving Toronto would start with either Vlad Guerrero Jr. or Bichette.

25 Jan 2018 18:26:22
"Jays trade Stroman, Bichette, Alford, and Reid Foley to Marlins for Yelich, Realmuto. "

They not only included Bichette, but a controllable pitcher, and another top 100 pitcher.

25 Jan 2018 21:47:24
*Top 100 player (Alford), not pitcher.

26 Jan 2018 03:13:35
Brewers trade a couple top 100 and couple throw ins for Yelich. Decent return because Brinson was included.

With them adding Yelich and Cain, brewers looking much better, still need more pitching though.

26 Jan 2018 04:23:51
Mark my words:

This Brewers team, as is right now, wins the division by 5 games. Adding an ace, they run away with it. That team is solid.

26 Jan 2018 06:28:25
"Brewers trade a couple top 100 and couple throw ins for Yelich. Decent return because Brinson was included. "

Brinson was a consensus top 100 prospect and both Harrison and Diaz have made different top 100 lists this offseason. So it's arguably 3 top 100 prospects and the 21th ranked prospect in a strong system.

26 Jan 2018 12:07:08
Can somenody please explain to me what exactly the marlins are doing.

I understand the dumping of the large contracts.

But Yelich, Ozuna, Realmuto etc?

It makes no sense, they are young, cheap controllable contracts.

If this happened up here with the jays, people would be rioting in the streets.

26 Jan 2018 14:02:50
the marlins farm system was baron, they had very little depth and Jeter realized it. Now they have a better farm system. Look what other teams have done such as the Cubs, White Sox, Yankees, Padres, Braves, Pirates, and others.

26 Jan 2018 20:17:14
Marlins were 28th in attendance last year, 20k per game.

Its going to be really bad this year.

All teams have to rebuild at some point, but this ones a head scratcher.

27 Jan 2018 05:14:14
its almost always like that in terms of attendance. whether they are winning or losing, people don't go. Unless teams like the Yankees, Mets, Cardinals, Cubs, Red Sox, and a few other come to town. They really just needed to sign a couple good starting pitchers and they could have won.

15 Feb 2018 15:25:18
Fake news alert: jaysfan17 could be a great gm. Not.

22 Jan 2018 18:25:52
Yankees trade Pitcher Sheffied and Outfield Frazier to Pirates for Josh Harrison and Tyler Glasnow who says no first

Agree7 Disagree18

22 Jan 2018 19:01:36

22 Jan 2018 22:06:07
Is both an option?

23 Jan 2018 00:09:37
I am pretty sure neither would do it.

22 Jan 2018 05:57:35
I think the Reds need to get rid of some out field with Winker coming up and I don't think they will trade Hamilton.

Reds get: Danny Salazar
Indians get: Scott Schebler

Schebler had a strong year last year and the time to cash in on him is now. Salazar was hurt parts of last year and is primed for a bounce back.

Agree7 Disagree15

22 Jan 2018 13:14:49
The Indians don't need another LHH outfielder who barely cracked .300 OBP while striking out a fourth of the time and playing, at best, average defense. Not for a guy who can be a # 3 SP. and better when he's on.

Change out Shebler for Duvall (they're essentially the same player. one's a RHH, the other a LHH, both are average defenders. etc. ) and make the deal all about the addition of Raisel Iglesias (the Indians would be required to add, as well), then, perhaps a deal can be cobbled together.

22 Jan 2018 00:16:04
Yankees: INF Jonathan Villar

Brewers: CF Jacoby Ellsbury, SP Albert Abreu (Yankees pay 65% of Ellsbury's contract)

Agree11 Disagree12

22 Jan 2018 03:03:40
This is bad.

1. The Brewers are actively trying to trade OF, not acquire them. And especially not old, washed up OF.

2. The Brewers are needing IF help.

3. That's not a high enough prospect for Ellsbury.

4. There's not a snowball's chance in hell the Brewers trade Villar for this sorry package.

Seriously, the Yankees aren't moving Ellsbury. The prospect (s) demanded would immediately shut down conversations.

23 Jan 2018 16:36:55
I did hear something about the Brewers being interested in Jacoby, which baffles me. That seems like it would be the one area they don't need. I think they would need to move a little bit more than Abreu with him as well, no matter where he's going, and Villar is probably more than they'd get back. Abreu plus is just what they would have to include in order for a team to take Jacoby. They'd have to add to that whatever the equal value of a player coming to NY would be.

21 Jan 2018 18:58:19
Just for fun guys. This site has been quiet.

Jays trade Pillar and Donaldson to the Cards for Ozuna. ( Cards resign Donaldson)

Jays trade Stroman, Bichette, Alford, and Reid Foley to Marlins for Yelich, Realmuto.

Sign Moustakas

Jays Lineup

Ozuna cf
Yelich Lf
Grichuk Rf
Diaz, Tulo SS
Travis, Solarte 2nd
Smoak 1st
Realmuto, Martin C
Morales, DH



Will have to add another SP and couple BP pieces.

Agree3 Disagree15

22 Jan 2018 00:00:52

22 Jan 2018 01:20:13
Start a conversation Chi Sox. My kid says bahahaha.

What part is not fair? Thought it might be close.

22 Jan 2018 03:05:12
The Cardinals didn't trade for Ozuna just to move him for a worse OF. And they still have plenty of young talent that they could just make a separate trade for Donaldson.

22 Jan 2018 03:54:06
I Know, I mentioned that in another post. I realize Ozuna is much better, Offensively anyway. Pillar atleast could fill in nicely.

The Cards have been all over Donaldson this Winter. I think the Cards would make that trade if the free agent outfield supply was good.

The Jays cannot compete for post season this year so Donaldson should be traded. Probably at the deadline now. I think if he was going to resign, it would have happened already.

22 Jan 2018 15:07:19
And if Toronto is going to trade some of their best prospects to get a Yelich and Realmuto package in an attempt to compete in the AL East, why would they trade their ace?

22 Jan 2018 23:03:25
This would not be a trade for this year but for the next few.

Guerrero might be up next year and a bunch of free agent are avaiable. Jays have a declining payroll as well with lots of cash to spend.

Stroman is one of the best young pitchers in the game but I betcha the Marlins would want him plus Bichette and Alford.

21 Jan 2018 20:18:26
This is my first post, so here it goes.

Pirates trade:
Josh Harrison(Pay half of his 2018 salary, 5m)

Yankees trade:
Clint Frazier
Brett Gardner

I'm not exactly sure how the value matches up here, but this makes sense for both teams to me. The Yankees get an infielder, and some salary relief to go after darvish. The pirates get Frazier, who could be a star, and all of this money would be off the books after this year, when they have money to spend anyway.
