I was just looking back at some old posts. Chisox actually proposed atrade in which the Yankees trade
Frazier-Torres-Andujar-Kaprelian-Headley-Gardner-Fowler--Rutherford and Chad Green and receive Quintana-McCutcheon and DRob
Not only does it include 4 Top 100 prospects but it also includes 2 starters. They give up their starting 3B and top 3B prospect and don't get one back.
So, if anyone sees him post-don't waste your time. He is just another delusional White Sox fan.

^^^This guy uses two months of data to support his claims. He also doesn't understand the stats he throws out.

Please also ignore him.

That proposal was essentially a joke when everyone thought Q's value was through the roof. Let's see your proposals, Mitch. It's easy to look back at old posts and critique them based on how they are performing now. lol I'm delusional? But you're reading my posts from like last fall.

Both teams have holes and are mired in mediocrity, so they make a deal.

Tigers send OF J.D. Martinez and 3B Nick Castellanos to St. Louis. Cardinals lack a feared bat in the lineup, and J.D. changes that. He moves into RF, Castellanos goes to 3B, and the Cards hope to move forward. Martinez is a free agent, and it gives the Cards the option to sign him or let him go. Gyorko moves to the super sub role.

St. Louis sends OF Randall Grichuk, 3B Jhonny Peralta, and former closer Trevor Rosenthal to Detroit. Peralta fills in at 3B for his old team, Rosenthal joins the pen, and Grichuk tries his hand in the Detroit OF.

my best trade for the los angles angles is trade c.j. cron and huston street to the rockies for Charlie Blackmon

I'm not even going to bash this. It just wouldn't be fair.

27 May 2017 15:45:51
What is your most favorite angle anyway?

27 May 2017 19:16:39
Obtuse ones, obviously.

25 Jun 2017 10:35:09
I just I can't just wow.

If the Brewers are not contending at the trade deadline, which is basically a certain, will they consider trading Thames? and If they do what could they get for him?

What do you guys think?

Agree2 Disagree2

14 May 2017 05:36:47
no, he is signed for two more years at very team friendly deal.

14 May 2017 20:36:07
Yes exactly, that's my point, he has all four things going for him, 1. He is producing, 2. He is controllable, 3. He isn't expensive, 4. He isn't that old. With all those things the Brewers could get multiple top prospects for him I think and if I were the Brewers I would do it, they have Shaw already so he could play 1st and play Perez at 3rd and have Villar and Arcia up the middle. I think if they move him to a contender in need of a 1st baseman/ DH at the deadline and get multiple top prospects to speed up their rebuild they should jump on it.

17 May 2017 02:45:17
The Brewers won't trade Thames. They're in 2nd place right now, and they could be a surprise. Next year, they could be legit. I say they are keepers at the deadline, which means you don't buy, but you don't sell.

12 May 2017 02:33:31
At the end of the year where do you guys think Eric Hosmer will go as long as he doesn't get an extension.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2017 17:35:27
Boston, NY Mets if they are in contention, that is all I can think of.

13 May 2017 13:56:56
I doubt he comes to Boston, They have Hanley locked into the DH barring any injury, and they have Sam Travis waiting in the wings, he is the reason why they did not target any of the big power hitters this offseason because they did not want to block him any longer. I could see him landing with the Rangers and my dark horse is the Angles. The Yankees have Bird and Austin so I do not think that they will be a contender for him, I think they are saving up for a run at Harper.

17 May 2017 02:48:46
I think If Yonder Alonso goes Elsewhere, Oakland could be a nice fit. Boston, Mets, Rangers could also go for him.

11 May 2017 13:45:19
Unfortunately for the Red Sox, this Kyle Kendricks experiment hasn't worked out well. Time to get rid of him and bring back up Johnson or even Ownes. Both of them should be better than Kendricks. They don't need to go out and acquire someone(at least not one that would cost a lot) because they still have Price on the DL and when he comes back we should be fine.

When Price comes back we will have a rotation of

Sale
Price
Porcello
Rodregez
Pomerantz

Then once everyone is heathy again our lineup will be

Betts RF
Padroia 2nd
Benitendi LF
Bogarts SS
Rameriz DH
Morland 1st
Bradley Jr. CF
Sandavol 3rd
Leon/Vasquez C

Young OF
Vasquez/Leon C
Holt UTL
Rutledge/Hernandez INF

Bullpen:
Scott/Taylor
Hembree
Ross Jr
Abad
Kelly
Barns
Kimbral

And at some point hopefully you could put Smith and Thornburg into the bullpen as well but I don't know when they will be back.

What do you guys think?

Cubs Get: Jose Quintana, Nate Jones

White Sox Get: Eloy Jimenez, Ian Happ, Jose Paulino, Preston Morrison

Might seem like a lot of an asking price but hear me out:

Cubs have an absolute log jam in their middle infield for the next 3 years with Zobrist on contract and Baez likely to be his heir apparent with addy locking down SS making Happ expendable (not less valuable, but expendable).
Eloy Jimenez is a corner outfielder which is also another spot where Jay Hay is signed for the next 6 years (they rarely play him in center) and Kyle is in left. Even Bryant and Zobrist get corner outfield roles as well. Once again, making it tough to see Eloy contributing to this team more than 30-40 games a year (similar to Soler).

They Get:
Q- cost control pitcher signed through 2020 who gives them leverage over Arietta this offseason and is likely the Ace as Lester Ages

Nate Jones- Top tier set-up man signed through 2019.

Agree2 Disagree3

18 May 2017 19:49:51
The Cubs seem more interested in letting the chips fall where they may.

Besides, if there's a team that loves positional flexibility, it's the Cubs. They'd rather use multiple guys in super-utility roles and get them 120-130 games than move them simply because they foresee a log-jam.

Some of those players will fizzle, some will get hurt. Some will change positions. It would be short-sighted to trade that depth for pitching when they can just sign a player in the winter.

21 May 2017 01:53:06
@thestatbook, fair point for sure about the super-utility roles. To your point nearly half of their roster can player both infield and outfield. And my point is not that they feel they HAVE to part ways because of a log jam, but rather that it might make parting ways with talents like Happ and Jimenez a bit easier considering you have players like Baez, Russell, Schwarber (who they seem committed to), and Heyward locked up at those positions.

It will be interesting to see how much long term money they want to invest in SP this offseason tho. Come 2020 they're going to have to lock up A LOT of their roster. I. E. Bryant, Russell, Schwarber, Contreras, Rizzo, Baez.

03 May 2017 19:34:19
Dodgers lineup in a few years

1. Toels LF
2. Puig RF
3. Seager SS
4. Belinger 1st
5. Peterson CF
6. 3rd _____
7. Barns C
8. Calhoun 2nd
9. Pitcher

They are only missing a 3rd baseman and they won't have a hard time finding one in FA or trade for one or maybe even draft someone that speeds through the minors. They could also improve their catcher but Barns isn't bad either

Then they also got Urias

They are going to be scary good(still) but also younger and have more money to spend after the older guys and their contracts come off the books.

What do you guys think?

How can you disagree with this. It is pure fact.

04 May 2017 15:59:33
They signed Justin Turner to a 5-year deal this winter.

05 May 2017 04:27:34
Its hard to predict where players will end up in several years, several of the players may not even be on the dodgers in a few years. that is how it is disagreeable.

15 Apr 2017 03:03:59
If the Angels were to trade Albert Pujols who would the Angels trade him too and for who?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2017 12:58:41
He's 37 and including this years, because it is still the beginning of the season, he's still owed $140 million. So they may be lucking to get a top prospect.

15 Apr 2017 13:47:10
*they may be lucky, not lucking.

15 Apr 2017 22:59:59
If they can shave even half of that salary off the payroll, they'll give Pujols away for free.

01 May 2017 20:38:49
He has a full no trade clause, so I doubt he goes anywhere. If anything, I think the Red Sox would love him to fill in somewhere. They need lots of power now that Ortiz left.
