Re: Offseason Transactions

The Mariners announced that they’ve acquired first baseman Ryon Healy from the division-rival Athletics in exchange for right-hander Emilio Pagan and minor league infielder Alexander Campos. Good return for the A's. Campos was a big IFA signing and Pagan had a really good season as a reliever. Also...

Rays considering a full rebuild.

How does Happ, Almora, Albertos, Caratini, Zagunis, DJ Wilson sound on Kiermaier, Odorizzi and Colome?

Re: Who is Ryan Schultz?

Haaaa, I remember that. Didn't someone at the cubs.com board also post for three days in row stuff from the Winter Meetings because he was at the hotel and then later said he wasn't and made it all up and asked us to forgive him?

Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

I'm not going nearly that in depth but I would really like to add Cobb (3 or 4 years at 15 per?) and Chatwood (2 year, 15-20 total?), in addition to keeping Davis and adding a pen reinforcement like Neshak and/or McGee. I'd also like to keep Rene Rivera and Brian Duensing, if they're open to returni...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Also, we need two starters, unless the plan is to let Tseng, Butler and Monty compete for the last spot after signing one of Lynn/Cobb/Chatwood. That doesn't seem ideal.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Where is this whole Nola idea coming from (relative to people that have written about it)? I'm baffled - I don't see anyway the Phillies deal a cost-controlled top young starter unless it is just such a monstrous return they can't say no. I feel like it's just writers spitballing regarding bad team...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Levine mentioned Shark as a potential trade again yesterday. Probably more musings than actual smoke but I am curious what they would be asking for in trade. They were awful this year and have a lot of holes in the lineup (they basically have half an outfield) and the pitching staff.

Almora, Zagunis, Clifton for Yelich, Chen, and Ramos, taking on all of Chen's contract. Too little?

Re: Trading Heyward

The Giants have a desperate need for outfield help. How insane is something like Heyward, Happ, Zagunis, Grimm and $$$ for Melancon and Shark?

Or what about seeing how much the Red Sox don't want to pay Porcello or Price anymore?

There’s a belief that former Cubs general manager Jim Hendry, currently a special assistant with the Yankees, could be brought over to the Marlins by Derek Jeter, Heyman reports in his NL roundup.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

I have just assumed we're losing Arrieta. The acquisition of Leonys makes me think he'll be the Jay-type outfielder next year. I really want to bring Davis back on a reasonable deal. I think Avila gets starter money or promised more at bats by someone else. I'd be cool with keeping Rene Rivera thoug...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

The Jays extended Marco Estrada. Too bad. He's had a down year but I wouldn't have minded him as a backend of the rotation option.

Also the Padres extended the MLB leader in hits allowed (and former Cubs great) Clayton Richard.
