Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

The Rangers are nearing a deal with veteran free agent hurler Lance Lynn, according to MLB.com’s TR Sullivan (via Twitter). It’s said to be a rather surprising three-year arrangement with a strong $30MM guarantee, with MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand adding the financial details on Twitter. Jon Daniels is ...

Re: Daniel Descalso

Like others have said, don't hate it at that price. He's a more versatile LaStella. But I just wish there was more happening.

My ideal scenario is this leads to a Russell trade, pushing Javy to short and Happ/Zobrist at second with Descalso as the backup at both spots.

So I guess they gave up on trying to work with the Marlins.

Re: Winter Meetings

If the deal is completed, there’ll be more to it than that. Corner infielder Yandy Diaz is going to the Rays, who’ll send first baseman Jake Bauers to the Indians, per Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times (via Twitter). There’s a competitive balance pick involved, which will land in Seattle, per Joel...

Also took Rafelin Lorenzo, a catcher from Pittsburgh and Alex Vargas, a pitcher from the Yankees.

Re: Rule 5/Rule V/Rule Five or whatever you weirdos want to call it

In the AAA portion, we lost David Garner (Toronto) and Yapson Gomez (Cleveland). Apparently we also don't have Jeffrey Baez anymore, he was taken off the Giants roster by Arizona. We picked up lefty pitcher Luis Lugo from Kansas City. Numbers don't look to bad. He pitched well in winter league. Anot...

Re: Winter Meetings

The Mariners are nearing a deal to acquire veteran slugger Edwin Encarnacion, according to Jon Heyman of Fancred (Twitter links). Fellow high-end hitter Carlos Santana will go to the Indians in the deal, if completed, the details of which remain unknown.


Well that's interesting.

Re: Winter Meetings

Maybe it's just me, but that seems like a lot for Joe Kelly. I'm gonna assume the price on Robertson is gonna be too high then.

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

I know last offseason was terrible, but this seems like an awfully boring/slow Winter Meetings this year. I used to always look forward to all the trades and signings that come out of these.

Are you the one who's been all about Richie Martin for what seems like months?

If we trade Russell before tomorrow afternoon, then sure.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I still want to believe we can convince someone like the Mets to trade for him. Maybe put a garbage package of him and Chatwood together to the Royals or Padres for peanuts. My latest dream is some weird version of Russell, Chatwood and a prospect like Steele to the Jays for Russell Martin and the b...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

So trade Russell to a team like the Mets or Padres or Royals and then add a prospect and bribe someone like the Angels into taking Chatwood's contract and then trade Almora or Happ for pitching prospects and there ya go.
