With the Machado to Cubs talks being brought up, does Happ, Russell and Montgomery really get it done?

A SS, albeit still young, who has never hit .250, highest wOBA is .316 and has never been at least average in terms of wRC+. Plus a guy in Happ who doesn't really have a position (he can "adequately" play the corners, decent in CF) who is hitting .233 (.396 BABIP) with a 44.2%(!!!) K-Rate. Sure these guys project as much better, but these are the cornerstones in return for your franchise player?

If I'm Baltimore, I'm pushing for Almora Jr. instead of Happ and I want Adbert Alzolay instead of Montgomery. Plus I think the versatility of Montgomery is more valuable to a playoff team like the Cubs.

I can't see the Cubs giving up that much controllable MLB-ready talent for less than a full year of Machado.

I'm definitely not high on Happ or Russell, but the Cubs seem to be. I don't see it.

Just when I thought the Rangers could get any worse they are going to sign Bartolo Colon I wish we would just start a rebuild now.

It’s a minor-league deal. It’s purely a depth move.

its a minor league deal, and there were/ are worse players they could have signed.

Well there you have it they released him.

Well, there you have him, they are starting him tonight.

Brewers need another SP so I can't see them trading for Yehlich and signing Cain without having a plan on getting another SP. Yu Darvish has to be in play or they can come knock on Detroit's door for Fulmer. They would have to give them three top prospects with a package of 4 or 5 total. Fulmer is a bulldog, cost certainty for 4 years and controlability for 5 or 6 years. They could also trade him in 3 years for top prospects back if this experiment doesn't work. Yankees love Fulmer so strike now while you have the chance.

I don't buy that they "NEED" another SP. Between Jimmy Nelson, Chase Anderson, and Zach Davies, they'd be just fine. Adding a frontline starter just gives them that much more of an edge.

As for Fulmer, it'd be a good time to trade for him. His recent injury lowers the return. Something like Domingo Santana, Brandon Woodruff, and Trent Clark would be great for Detroit.

Tigers aren't going to trade Fulmer unless it absolutely blows them away.

Agree2 Disagree2

06 Feb 2018 16:34:50
They won’t be trading Fulmer until his injury is well behind him.

There’s nothing wrong with that, either. But they won’t be “blown away” as it is now.

As I said on your rumors post, no to the Machado trade.

Arrieta is worth more than 3yr $60Mil.

Forget this. Royals aren't trading Duffy.

Rockies get Kelvin Herrera
Royals get David Dahl

Rockies get closer to replace Holland. Royals get replacement for Cain

With the Tigers not having much depth in the infield in the majors, I feel they should go after Alexi Amarista. Sign him to a one year deal as a stopgap for the infield prospects to come. Amarista can play multiple positions and fill the Tigers bench role nicely.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Dec 2017 12:41:15
OK. But is this really that important?

Yankees and rangers trade:

Yankees get: jurikson profar
Rangers get: Brett Gardner and chasen Shreeve

Agree0 Disagree5

10 Dec 2017 06:53:55
That’s definitely an overpay for the Yankees.

Agree1 Disagree1

10 Dec 2017 18:01:15
How is it an overpay? The Rangers are taking on at least $13M, which the Yankees would likely want to get rid of after moving Stanton. (No one is taking Ellsbury) .

Agree0 Disagree1

11 Dec 2017 13:21:14
Profar is not worth giving up a speedy power hitter like Gardner and giving up a nice young lefty arm in Shreve. It’s not worth it for the Yankees.

Agree1 Disagree1

11 Dec 2017 14:35:12
The value isn't in the player, it's stuck in a contract. They'll want to move some money, and no one is taking Ellsbury. Gardner may be their best hope to clear some salary.

Agree0 Disagree1
