Two Wild Card Contenders Help Each Other Out

Mariners get Brett Gardner

Yankees get Felix Hernandez


The Mariners get a much better option in CF and a lead off hitter with pop in Gardner who could also provide veteran leadership while cutting salary in half and for one less year.

The Yankees get a veteran starter who knows how to pitch for their postseason run once he returns from the DL and would be a nice replacement for Sabathia next year as an innings eater. They have too many outfielders as it is and Ellsbury's contract is unmovable so Gardner is the odd man out. They can afford to take on his contract with A-Rod, Sabathia, and possibly Tanaka's money coming off the books after this year.


Who says no?

Agree3 Disagree14

09 Aug 2017 17:15:02
Felix Hernandez is out the next 3-4 weeks. this does nothing to help the Yankees. Once again bwright not well thought out.

09 Aug 2017 17:51:32
I know he's out 3-4 weeks. I said when he gets back and also next year.

Regardless, do you think the value is fair for both teams?

09 Aug 2017 18:14:30
No not all. Felix isn't the same pitcher he used to be. The Yankees are getting younger and he no longer fits them. Next year they have Gray, Severino, and Montgomery. I don't think Tanaka opts out after this horrible year he is having. I think they sign someone to bridge them to when Chance Adams is ready.

09 Aug 2017 18:30:29
Fair enough. I appreciate the constructive criticism.

Brewers get Curtis Granderson and Neil Walker

That Yelich trade HAS to be a joke, right?

08 Aug 2017 17:36:48
AJ are not paying attention to anything? Yankees aren't going to need Yelich, they have Judge, Gardner, Hicks, Frazier, and Ellsbury (who will probably not be there next year) . Not to mention a plethora of outfielders in the minors.

08 Aug 2017 18:51:54
^included in said plethora is Estevan Florial. With Frazier, Judge and Hicks they honestly won't have a need for Schwarber either.

Betances provides much more value to a playoff team than Schwarber anyways.

08 Aug 2017 22:10:35
The other point is that Yelich is going to cost a team WAY more than this. He's young and controllable, as well as ridiculously good. Start with a top 10 prospect, and add from there.

Pirates Offseason:
Pirates saved 10 million this season between Martes suspension, Kang's visa, J. Hughes release and Watson trade

Needs for Pirates: 1) Power hitting 3B 2) Veteran LHSP 3) lefty bullpen help 4) 4th Outfielder until A. Meadows is ready

Already got UTY Sean Rodriguez so check and started to help bullpen with Kontos but they need another lefty....

Internal option move Jose Osuna to 3B. External option Sign Mike Moustakas 4 yrs 44-52 million *If the pirates trade McCutchen. Or else this would never happen.

Sign Jhoulys Chacin 3 years 15-18 million

Agree0 Disagree12

07 Aug 2017 22:37:25
Mustakas is going to get a lot more money.

08 Aug 2017 00:07:05
Big Delusional Bird, Moustakas will certainly get more than what you suggested probably double, and more like 5-6 years.

08 Aug 2017 02:15:09
Veteran LH SP is not Chacin. He's right-handed. He would probably be a good signing though.

08 Aug 2017 02:16:24
He WILL NOT make 22 million a year batman that's Mike Trout money. And Moustakas is not Trout.

Thats 11-13 million a year Moustakas, who is getting 8.5 now. Ill even bump it up to 13-15 million a year for 4 years. (Which is McCutchen money) But that was a realistic pirates offer who never give out big contracts especially to players whos about to be 29. They prefer to over pay for below-average players like in recent memory. (Daniel Hudson, John Jaso, Antonio Bastardo)

Mind you I'd rather them spend big money on impactful players instead of overpaying for basically nothing.

08 Aug 2017 13:39:40
Have you not been paying attention to what players have been getting thru free agency?

Moustakas will certainly get way more than the tiny contract you've predicted. Probably closer to 5/ 100 than anything.

08 Aug 2017 14:06:58
Wow, you really are delusional. Playeres are making 30 million a year now, do you not pay any attention to the game at all? Moustakas will most defintely get 20 million a year. The fact you put Trout in this conversation is hilarious. He should be making more than 22 million and actually next year Trout will be making 32 million.

08 Aug 2017 19:36:26
BigBird, this is the MLB, not the NFL.

Homer Bailey received $105M over 6 years. do I have to elaborate?

08 Aug 2017 20:20:37
I really didn't fully read your last comment Bigbird, you cannot compare salaries like that. What someone signed years ago was the norm salary then. Salaries in baseball are going up, big time. The Qualifying offer after the season will 18 million, i think i read. If you are trying to say Moustakas won't get 18 million, you are more than delusional.

NY Mets send Lagaras to Detroit

Tigers send Verlander and 18 million to Mets

Agree2 Disagree18

03 Aug 2017 20:02:45
Pretty convenient for the Mets. Tigers will still want something for Verlander, and if they are paying in $18M, it'll be a steep price.

10 Aug 2017 00:07:31
Whew. Took me a few minutes to stop laughing.

No.

Rays Offseason

TRADE
TB- Jose Abreu
CWS- Jose De Leon, Lucius Fox

CWS have one big piece left and that's Abreu. They will look to move him in the offseason. His contract is reasonable and TB will be looking for pieces with control and affordable. This move benefits both teams.

Resign
Lucas Duda 4 years $36 million
Sign
Neil Walker 2 years $24 million


Lineup
LF- Corey Dickerson
2B- Neil Walker
3B- Evan Longoria
1B- Jose Abreu
DH- Lucas Duda
RF- Steven Souza Jr
C- Wilson Ramos
CF- Kevin Kiermaier
SS- Willie Adames

Bench

SU- Brad Boxberger
CL- Alex Colume

Agree5 Disagree9

03 Aug 2017 03:39:32
Your trade has some merit. The free agent signings? Not so much, especially Walker. That would mean Brad Miller, Matt Duffy, Hechavarria and Willy Adames all vying for playing time and the starting SS job. I don't think they traded Moore and prospects to put Duffy and Adeiny on the pine.

03 Aug 2017 03:39:55
Also, you left Alex Cobb and Matt Andriese out of the team's plans.

03 Aug 2017 05:05:06
Cobb is a free agent this winter.

03 Aug 2017 18:02:34
Sox aren't trading Abreu anytime soon. Especially not for a headliner of De Leon.

05 Aug 2017 03:49:18
Forgot that about Cobb. Dude will make big coin this winter.

05 Aug 2017 13:31:42
No worries. It'll be interesting to see what these middle rotation arms make. I'm guessing around 13-18M a year.

05 Aug 2017 14:03:38
Cobb is good enough that he would be a No. 1 SP on some teams, and the No. 2 SP on many. He will be at the high end of that spectrum.

05 Aug 2017 18:12:13
I think we'll have to disagree on that. He doesn't have the peripherals to control front line starter money. Maybe for someone like Milwaukee or Kansas City.

08 Aug 2017 20:22:54
I am going to agree with thestatbook on this. I don't see Cobb getting the top end of starter money. He is good enough to be a number 1 on a bad team like the Marlins or even the Phillies. A good team like the Dodgers, probably 4 or 5. I think no more than 15 million a year for Cobb.

01 Aug 2017 19:18:12
Who is going to be the last prospect going to Detroit in the Justin Wilson and Alex Avila traded with the Cubs I got 8 prospects that would do great for the tigers here they r

Of-Albert Almora JR
Of-Mark zagunis
Of-Eddy Martinez
RHP-Duane Underwood Jr
Of- DJ Wilson
c-Victor Caratini
Of-Charcer Burks
RHP-Jen Ho Tseng

Agree2 Disagree11

01 Aug 2017 20:16:53
I think you are shooting for the starts on that one. Almora isn't a prospect anymore, there for isn't in this category. I don't think its going to be one of these players. They already got 2 good players, the third will be a low level, non top 30 prospect. I could be wrong, but who knows.

01 Aug 2017 17:20:05
Mets

Resign
Jay Bruce 3 years $36 million (Played well in NY and the market for OF is not that strong)
Neil Walker 2 years $22 million (Spoke about an extension in the offseason, will get it done)

Sign
Jake Arrieta 1 year $20 million (one year deal to improve his stock after a rough 2017)
Jonathon Lucroy 2 years $23 million (Good veteran to improve the Mets staff)

Lineup
SS- Amed Rosario
CF- Michael Conforto
LF- Yoenis Cespedes
RF- Jay Bruce
2B- Neil Walker
C- Jonathon Lucroy
1B- Dominic Smith
3B- Wilmer Flores

Bench
C- Travis d'Arnaud
IF- TJ Rivera
IF- Jose Reyes
OF- Juan Lagares
OF- Brandon Nimmo

Starters
SP- Jacob deGrom
SP- Noah Syndergaard
SP- Jake Arrieta
SP- Matt Harvey
SP- Steven Matz

Bullpen
LR- Robert Gsellman
MR- Zach Wheeler
MR- Jamie Callahan
MR- Seth Lugo
MR- Jeremy Blevins
SU- AJ Ramos
CL- Jenrys Familia

The Mets have $80 million committed to the payroll for next season. They played this year around $130 million. They have about $50 million to spend this year. These moves take up $54 million in cap space. This would be the only way the Mets take advantage of their window.

Agree2 Disagree12

01 Aug 2017 23:49:44
Arrieta has been an average starter this year. I really don't think he'll be accepting a 1 year contract at this point in his career. Might be taking a lesser amount per year but he'll still get some years.

02 Aug 2017 05:39:26
They'll have less than $50M. You have to consider the arbitration costs of deGrom, d'Arnaud, Flores, Harvey, Wheeler, and even more so, Syndergaard.

By the time they pay out those salaries, it's closer to about $15M–20M. I doubt the Mets can do anything significant unless their ownership stops being so cheap.

03 Aug 2017 03:40:59
Lucroy has had a terrible year, both offensively and framing pitches.

03 Aug 2017 18:04:15
Harvey will not be pitching for the Mets next year.

31 Jul 2017 20:52:17
To PIT: Jamie Callahan and cash

To BOS: David Freese

Agree0 Disagree11

01 Aug 2017 00:35:09
yeah by the time you posted this, Callahan was already traded to the Mets in the Reed trade.

01 Aug 2017 05:19:54
If it weren't posted late, it's not a bad trade.

But with the acquisition of Nunez, why would Boston need another 3B?

01 Aug 2017 17:05:23
Completely forgot about Nunez.

31 Jul 2017 20:39:39
To PIT: Willie Calhoun 2B/OF and cash considerations or PTBNL

To LAD: Tony Watson LHRP Juan Nicasio RHRP

Agree0 Disagree11
