Not a big fan of Happ trade to Yankees. McKinney might be ok down the road but Drury is average at best and another third baseman the Jays don't need. Yanks won trade by far.

Agree2 Disagree0

McKinney is worse than Hernandez, Alford, Pompey, Grichuk, Pillar. At 24, I'm not sure where he finds the playing time in that roster.

Drury and his 50 wRC+ is absolutely putrid. He's a classic AAAA player.

Maybe the market for Happ wasn't strong, but they probably could have received more elsewhere for him. If they were aiming for Drury, their entire front office should be fired.

26 Jul 2018 22:49:46
Geez I didn't realize he was 24 already. Yeah definitely could of got a better deal.

Atleast go for a pitching prospect.

26 Jul 2018 19:16:46
What will the Braves do if anything?

Chris Archer?
Reds Bullpen arms?
or a hitter.

Outside of the Padres they have the farm system to get anyone they want.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2018 22:24:44
If I'm the Braves, I'm targeting a big named, controlled starter.

Go get Syndergaard. They could give 3-4 top prospects and still have a top 5 farm system. You don't win championships by counting prospects.

25 Jul 2018 09:00:11
Anyone know if the Cubs have the minor leaguers for J. A. Happ? Thanks.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2018 14:47:28
They probably do, but not as much as they use to have so they may have to give up more than other teams to get him. But do the Cubs really need another starter?

25 Jul 2018 16:03:22
The Cubs would have some pieces the Blue Jays would like, but Toronto will likely wait to see if better offers come their way. The Cubs farm system is empty.

17 Jun 2018 14:33:34
Any opinions on where Donaldson and Happ may end up at the deadline?

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2018 14:28:26
Donaldson I'd say Atlanta or St. Louis. Happ Yankees, Seattle, Phillies.

27 Jun 2018 01:53:59
Donaldson will remain on the DL at the deadline, watching his 2019 salary drop a million dollars per week.

29 Jun 2018 15:50:11
He'll probably get traded in August for not much more then the 2nd round pick they'll receive.

I still think he gets 20 mil a year with a lesser term. Lots of big money will be flying around this off season.

30 Jun 2018 06:46:25
He'll be 33 in December and his health has all but deteriorated. For the life of me, I cannot even think of a team that might consider giving him 20M a year. Any GM who gives him 15M a year at this point should immediately be fired.

There will be 2 players who will receive ungodly salaries (I don't think Kershaw opts out) and I think the rest will receive very modest figures, maybe even another low year.

14 Jun 2018 05:04:47
That's too much for Machado, I think he could get Russell or happ, not both. And that is wayyyyyy too much for Donaldson, he doesn't have much value at the moment.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2018 23:47:42
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.

Agree2 Disagree4

18 May 2018 23:05:52
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.

03 Feb 2018 17:49:44
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.

Agree0 Disagree7

06 Feb 2018 16:33:44
It’s a minor-league deal. It’s purely a depth move.

08 Feb 2018 20:19:23
its a minor league deal, and there were/ are worse players they could have signed.

28 Mar 2018 20:32:18
Well there you have it they released him.

02 Apr 2018 22:24:29
Well, there you have him, they are starting him tonight.

26 Jan 2018 01:54:16
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.

Agree0 Disagree1

26 Jan 2018 04:28:39
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.

26 Jan 2018 21:24:49
Tigers aren't going to trade Fulmer unless it absolutely blows them away.

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.

20 Dec 2017 23:06:46
Arrieta is worth more than 3yr $60Mil.
