Re: Random In-season Musings and Rumors

The Rays just traded a Top 100 prospect for a lefty reliever that isn't Justin Wilson.

Oh big time.

I also remember posters there and here mocking my posts because I was a kid (not on skyballer level, tho). To be fair, I had some dumb opinions back them. But also, I'm now 30 so feel free to feel old.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates



I was thinking about the possibility of getting him and Rivera in the same deal. Would certainly fit the Montgomery-type deal we've talked about.

Re: RE: Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

This is what I've been saying What would you guys expect the cost to be? Definitely Almora, possibly Happ. Maybe something like Almora, Clifton, Hatch, Candelario and Zagunis? i wouldn't trade happ in this deal in a million horsefeathering years I wouldn't deal Happ either.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Honestly how much worse would the pen be off if we call up someone like Maples or Pena every so often as opposed to dealing away prospects for another reliever? Strop and Rondon have also been pretty solid recently. Rondon has struck out 14 and allowed no earned runs in his last 9 innings. Strop ha...

Re: Random In-season Musings and Rumors

10:40am: The Mariners and Marlins have reportedly agreed to a trade that will send right-handed setup man David Phelps from Miami to Seattle in exchange for a package of four prospects. Center field prospect Brayan Hernandez is the headliner, while the other names in the deal reportedly include rig...

Where do you guys think Tseng fits in? He has looked pretty good this year and has pitched well (so far) as a 22 year old in AAA.

Re: Random In-season Musings and Rumors

David Phelps to the Mariners for 4 prospects.

That's one Cubs target off the list. Also sounds like the the Astros are pushing hard for Sonny Gray. My hope is they include Jed Lowrie in the deal because he is only allowed to play for those two teams.

Re: Random In-season Musings and Rumors

Britton, Gausman, Joseph for Jeimer, Zagunis, Clifton and Caratini. Who says no? The Orioles. Britton has one more year of control after this. Despite the forearm injury, the trade package is going to have to rival the Chapman trade for the Orioles to move him. Yeah, then I think we would be out. W...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

I like Teheran as a decent, young and controllable starter who could be a good....number 3... starter. It really all depends on what Atlanta asks for. They are selling low on him but he does have the track record. Maybe we can trade Caratini back to them so we end up getting Teheran for James Russel...

Re: Cubs trade Eloy, Cease, others for Quintana

I like this trade the more I think about it. I'm over the initial shock. It's really a fair deal for both sides. The reports I'm seeing make it sound like his slow start was a bit of a fluke. Also it's pretty damn cool we have him for three more years. It's like he's on a 3 year 31 mil deal after th...

Re: Cubs trade Eloy, Cease, others for Quintana

Trade all the prospects. Forever. Keep trading them. Go get me another starter, too. I've been trying to guess what else is on the Cubs shopping list for this deadline, and what deals are still possible after flipping Eloy & Cease. Backup C? LHRP? Another starter, probably more in the Monty 201...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Looking at some options, now that we have Quintana, what would Gausman and Caleb Jospeh cost? Gausman can fill the Montgomery role and Joseph rates as a solid framer and has a decent bat.

Re: Cubs trade Eloy, Cease, others for Quintana

I DO love though that we have Quintana through 2020, and the secondary pieces in the deal are basically roster filler. So we can still trade Jeimer and Zagunis and Almora/Happ for another piece before the deadline.

What does this make our top 10 look like now?
