Something like a prospect and Thames for Gray makes sense. IMO

Meanwhile, #PTR is ordering Giordanos for dinner instead of Pequod's because he has a 2 for 1 coupon.

I hope the cardinals spend big on Goldschmidt and he leaves in a year anyway.

Comforto I get and maybe Rosario but Nimmo should be a no brainer to include for Realmuto. I also don’t get why the Marlins want established major league guys either, other than they’re horsefeathering idiots

The Mets’ new GM seems like a really strong hire. I’ve been saying they should trade for Votto for years now, Cano’s tomato/tomahto. I like the pretend shopping Synergaard thing, he is my early pick for next year’s top SP. Diaz was obviously an excellent pickup for a team that always seems to have late inning bullpen issues.

I don’t really like Realmuto as a trade target for them. Sign Grandal and trade for Goldschmidt, and they could probably get away with Goldschmidt + a cheaper catcher/d’Arnaud/Pawlecki.

This is probably worth posting...Where I see random players ending up:

Harper - Cubs
Machado - St. Louis
Keuchel - Yankees
Realmuto - ??!?!
Goldschmidt - Mets
S. Gray - Brewers
Bumgarner - Phillies
Kimbrel - Phillies
Kikuchi - Phillies
Grandal - Brewers

Man, Realmuto’s a real difference maker this offseason. Top 3 position player available

The Cardinals? I agree. Would assume they’re moving on from Jose Martinez and Goldschmidt replaces him. Production wise that’s not a huge bump to making them better from last year. This also forces Carpenter and his middle school arm to 3B.

4/~70 seems like a lot of money for a guy with his injury history

In theory, depending on our grander plans/ability to spend, there’s a few variations of trades for either Kluber or Bauer that make decent sense for both teams that includes some combo of Q, Willy, Happ, Almora, Schwarber, Monty, Kintzler, Duensing (as pure salary dumps/offsets on the latter 2) maybe even Zobrist and prospects. If the Indians goal is to get mostly players back that help them now vs a prospect heavy package.

“Mystery Team” = “It’ll be one of the teams I’ve listed, but if it’s a different team, that was the mystery team”. :roll:
