Much more meaning the Yankees are giving up more?

Speculate on potential big league names?

Eovaldi, Beltran, Ellsbury, Gardner are the most likely right?

Re: Chapman

well its definitely not going to be straight up. The Montgomery trade was exactly the type of transaction I've come to expect from this front office. Giving up Torres and more for the rest of the year of Chapman seems out of character and kind of surprising. This reminds me of Red Sox Thoyer! Balls...

Again my acceptance of this trade hinges on the rumored extension. If the extension happens I'm fine with it on a baseball level though it pains me to give Torres.

Re: Chapman

I'm personally in the camp of: I'd rather the Cubs not get him, lose a little respect for the org but I will still root for him to be successful as a Cub while not actually rooting for him personally. I understand this is a big gray area that I'm not sure how I'll sort out but worse case there are 2...

Re: Chapman

I'd be ok with the deal if an extension is done w trade.

Still obviously have reservations from a moral level as well as a risk of signing him with his background.

Re: Chapman

Twitter seems to think everyone is too attached to our prospects. I'm not, I'd be willing to trade Torres...just not for a 2 month rental who is a reliever

Re: Chapman

You'd be bummed about Torres, right? I do think it's going to take that. If not any of Happ, Torres, Eloy then get it done. I'll deal with my dirty feelings. I wouldn't be all that bummed about Torres but I don't know if it will take that. I'm not huge on Torres, both because of what he profiles as...

I could like him again if he somehow turned into a lockdown ace in the playoffs and the Cubs won the world series. Other than that probably not.

Re: What would you guys give up for Sale?

The luminaries over at WSI were discussing a potential trade of Sale to the Cubs, and some of them seem to think that Rizzo and Bryant plus a prospect would be a fair return. If Sale is actually dealt, there will be some very angry and flummoxed folks over there. I mean Sale would net a very nice p...

No on Profar and Gallo. I don't want to see the White Sox ruin the careers of other teams prospects that I actually like
