Curious what folks think about Chris Archer's value. I'm a Phillies fan and think rounding out he rotation with him as the #4 and being able to shift Arietta to #5 could have some benefits. I would love the Phils to be able to craft some kind of deal where they could hook Archer as a reclamation project for Bryan Price and possibly fetch Taillon also. Knowing he's out for 2020, he could be a good gamble if he can bounce back. Might be unlikely being this is his second TJ surgery, but I'd like to see Klentak get creative here. Thoughts?

Neither Archer nor Taillon will fetch much from teams. The Pirates would be better off seeing what happens than to sell low, especially on Archer.

Most of the teams that have been thrown around in the Mookie Betts rumor mill are the usual suspects. Big market teams, and the top farm systems in San Diego and Atlanta.

One team that I think should be in the conversation, maybe before any of those others, is Minnesota. They have a good number of top prospects, were just a triple digit win team who might actually be one big addition or two away from winning it all, and they are in a city that not many players are looking to go, which means an all in push for a top player could be worth the prospects that Boston would want.


More than likely, Mookie isn't going to stick around past this season, but teams like San Diego, Atlanta and the other top market teams have the luxury of slow builds. The Twins don't have that. They aren't going to be the group that lures Cole or Rendon. They'll have to give up the goods in order to get past the Yankees in the playoffs. If I'm them, I think I bring in Mookie full boat, bring on Price at a portion of his contract, and give up a couple of promising prospects in return, thinking this could be the year. Of all teams, they know that prospects don't always pan out (Buxton injuries) and they rarely have a shot at a sure thing. Also, a single ring is a big enough deal there, that they might as well swing for the fences. If/When he leaves, they at least made the push.

I doubt Mookie brings in much more than Goldschmidt did last season.

So, think 2-3 players who are MLB ready, but none who are lights out players. Kelly, Weaver, and Young are all pretty good players, but none of them are household names.

I doubt Betts commands much more than that.

Who can the yankees pawn Giancarlo Stanton on?
SD?
SF?
You Tell Me.

Stanton would have to be tied to an elite prospect, and the return would be minimal.

So, maybe Stanton + Florial to San Francisco for Jeff Samardzija. That'd get the job done.

How did you determine the top 10? Based on WAR alone, in 2008, Posey was the best player drafted, and it hasn't even been close. (41.7 WAR compared to 19.8 for Kimbrel) .
