How about a trade between the Yankees and dodgers.
Yankees get : Yadier Alvarez
Dodgers get : Michael Pineda

Pineda is playing really good, and since he is a free agent a trade seems plausible. They get a prospect to help them in the future while giving up chances of winning this year.

Agree0 Disagree9

With Pineda pitching well and Tanaka not, don't you think they should hold on to him? Plus they are in contention, teams in contention don't sell. Also They could probably get more than one prospect in return.

Yankees - Christian Yelich
Marlins - Clint Frazier, Justus Sheffield, Chance Adams or Dustin Fowler.

Agree3 Disagree14

10 Jun 2017 11:01:38
The Yankees already have Gardner, Ellsbury, Judge and Hicks in the OF.

10 Jun 2017 15:22:06
Well, yelich would likely be around much longer than ellsbury and Gardner. Not saying I like the trade, just saying yelich could be useful to them beyond this season.

11 Jun 2017 01:30:40
Yanks have no need for Yelich. Still have Frazier, Fowler and Rutherford. Need a 3B-but may decide to promote Torres or Wade. One guy I would LOVE for them to get is reliever Hand from SD. So, a trade for a 3B or solid lefty reliever-that's all right now.

Yankees-White Sox trade:

Yankees get: Todd Fraizer

White Sox get: Dillon Tate, Rob Refsnider and Mason Williams.

The Yankees need a boost at 3rd base even more than the Red Sox but that is just because they are atop the division. I think the Yankees should have never traded away Solarte because he would be great at the hot corner for them now. and even though they are in win now mode I think this offseason they will move on from guys like Ellsburry and Gardner and Holliday(can't remember if he signed a 1 or 2 year deal) as well as guys like Clippard and Sabathia and Headly and Layne. Even though they are doing ok for the most part they are either old or getting old and have big contracts so you might look to trade them to a contender who needs that one missing piece to complete the puzzle. They have guys like Tyler Austin who will be coming back from injury who will take Carters role and they have plenty of young OFs and INFs and pitching and you can always find RPs in FA. I know this is a lot but I think it would be smart for the Yankees to look into this. And by the way this is all coming from a Red Sox fan so I did my best trying to judge people's value in this trade so it might be a little lopsided but I tried my best

Agree9 Disagree8

I actually love the match of the Todd-Father and Yankees but I really don't think the Sox get that much back. If Hahn got Tate straight up I would be satisfied.

10 Jun 2017 03:02:25
Sure, why not?

Giants and Yankees trade

Giants send Johnny Cueto to the Yankess for OF Blake Rutherford, LHP Justus Sheffield, and LHP James Reeves.

Agree10 Disagree15

08 Jun 2017 13:44:39
Like you, I think Cueto will be dealt. I am not sure the Yanks would do this, as they seem committed to their youth rebuild. But it's plausible, for sure.

08 Jun 2017 15:05:04
The Yankees would be fools to give up that much for a half year of Cueto, for the reason LBF gave.

08 Jun 2017 18:51:33
Cuteo can also opt out, essentially making him a rental. If SF continues to struggle he may even be a yankee via FA next year.

07 Jun 2017 16:27:08
The Nationals obviously need an upgraded bullpen. So here's the way to fix it.
Right now the bullpen is:
- Matt Albers
- Koda Glover
- Shawn Kelley
- Oliver Perez
- Enny Romero
- Blake Trienen
- Jacob Turner
The Nats get Sammy Solis back, get a renewed and healthy Joe Blanton. And then they trade Austin Voth and Spencer Kieboom for Kelvin Herrera.
Then the bullpen is:
- Matt Albers
- Koda Glover
- Shawn Kelley
- Oliver Perez
- Enny Romero
- Blake Trienen
- Kelvin Herrera
- Sammy Solis
They will send Joe Blanton to the Minors to make sure he can get his veteran groove back. And they will carry 8 relievers because they don't have a long reliever.

Agree7 Disagree4

07 Jun 2017 22:04:10
Sounds like a plan.

06 Jun 2017 20:34:06
Yankees get 2B/3B Jed Lowrie.

Oakland A's get SS/2B Hoy Jun Park(#23) and CF Mason Williams.

Yankees get an upgrade at 3B in Lowrie without trading any of their top prospects.This also allows Gleyber Torres to spend most of the season at AAA and not be rushed.

For Oakland they get former top prospect CF Mason Williams who is struggling right now at AAA but a change of scenery might be good for him and an interesting prospect in Park that can play either 2B or SS but has ways to go.

Agree10 Disagree5

07 Jun 2017 02:25:32
I like it, snowman.

13 Jun 2017 05:28:19
Sounds good. Fair value. Lowrie has $6 mil option for '18. I'm sold. One of better posts. Keep up good work!

05 Jun 2017 23:59:40
The Cubs need a jolt to break out of the post World Series doldrums. This does it.

Chicago sends OF Kyle Schwarber to the AL where he belongs; Schwarber goes to Tampa Bay, where he slots into the OF/DH/1B mix with Morrison, Rasmus, Dickerson and Souza. LoMo and Rasmus are free agents at the end of the year.

The Rays send Jake Odorizzi and RHP prospect Jacob Faria to Chicago. Odorizzi has two options remaining, so he's a cheap and controllable upgrade to a Cubs' rotation that needs a little youth. Faria could be ready soon.

Chicago has Heyward, Happ, Zobrist, Almora and Jay in the OF, so they'll be fine.

blue jays get: Jay Bruce

mets get: Danny Barnes

Jays need all the pitching helpvthey can right now with their injuries. They have a little more flexibility in the outfield. We will see what direction the Jays go from now until the all star break.

05 Jun 2017 08:06:38
Colorado Rockies. 2017's biggest surprise is off to a sizzling start, and it wouldn't be a surprise if they gave up quality prospects to improve their big league roster. I see them with two needs - rotation and bullpen.

For any pitchers that they acquire, a high Ground Ball Percentage is essential, so that the long ball can be limited.

Rotation candidates
Sonny Gray (53.8 GB% since 2015)
Marcus Stroman (60.7 GB% since 2015)
Garrett Richards (54.1 GB% since 2015)

Bullpen candidates
Dan Jennings (59 GB%)
Mark Rzepczynski (67.9 GB%)
Brad Ziegler (67.9 GB%)

Realistically, I see them going after Gray and Ziegler. Jays and Halos are unlikely to trade away their stars.

Rockies acquire: Sonny Gray
Athletics acquire: Riley Pint, David Dahl, Ben Bowden

Rockies acquire: Brad Ziegler
Marlins get: Peter Lambert, Forrest Wall, Sam Moll

Agree3 Disagree7

05 Jun 2017 12:54:00
Gray may be dealt, but I cannot see Colorado giving up that much for him.

05 Jun 2017 16:55:48
Ziegler for 3 of the Rockies top 30 prospects? I don't think so. Not every reliever will bring in big returns. Plus the Marlins aren't smart enough to ask for something like that.

05 Jun 2017 20:04:23
Replace Dahl with Tapia and/ or Pint with Castellani and it's a little more realistic.

07 Jun 2017 02:26:08
If any jays starter gets traded from the Jays, it won't be Stroman or Sanchez. Estrada and Happ might be up for grabs though if Jays fall farther back.

09 Jun 2017 17:27:41
Colorado isn't trading Dahl he is their future in the OF. Cargo and Blackman aren't getting any younger. I could see them looking to move Story who just hasn't been the same since his injury and give someone like Brendan Rodgers a shot at the everyday shortstop role. But they have a really good young core. I think they wait one more year before actually going into full win now mode. Let guys like Dahl and Gray and Ottavino get healthy and then this offseason look for an upgrade at 1st (doubt Reynolds can keep his pace up) and possibly at SS (but I personally say give Rodgers a shot at the end of the year when the rosters expand. So I say wait one more year and then focus on winning now and pick up a bullpen arm or two possibly a rotation arm and then an upgrade at 1st and possibly at SS and C too. But their time is definitely coming and pretty soon they will become a postseason regular again like they use to be.

04 Jun 2017 23:51:47
After trading Cueto, San Francisco let's Matt Cain walk. The two moves save the Giants some $42 million for next season.

San Fran then sends INF/OF Eduardo Nunez to Boston. He helps shore up 3B for the Sox.

Boston sends the Giants 3B prospect Bobby Dalbec and LHP Jhonathan Diaz.

Agree7 Disagree5

09 Jun 2017 17:02:29
I'm not moving Dalbec for Nunez. Nunez is an ok player, but a lot of scouts are saying that they don't think Devers will be sticking at 3rd, and will likely move to 1st. I'd like to keep Dalbec around for that. I'd put Chavis into the deal instead.
