Think he killed his market when he said he wouldn't waive no-trade.

Any news on Tommy Joseph moving so Hoskins gets a shot?
Dave Cameron
1:17
Don't know anyone who is in the market for a replacement level 1B.
Would guess that Phillies just give Hoskins a shot some point in August anyway, since Joseph isn't good.

If Darvish is not dealt the Rangers basically get a 2nd round pick.  That seems like a easy hurdle to clear for a team to beat as a trade offer.  Candelario would be more valuable than that correct?
Dave Cameron
1:18
Well, they also get exclusive negotiating rights for the next few months.
And you retain the chance of a miracle leading the team back to a Wild Card berth.
1:19
So I don't think you just give him away for some 40 FV guy because it's better than a 2nd rounder.

Is it a tough market for sellers because 3 of the divisions are basically over?
Dave Cameron
1:19
Yeah, that doesn't help. You normally would have teams like HOU, WAS, and LAD being more aggressive buyers, but they are already in the postseason, so they can be picky.
1:20
Sounds like Astros might get Liriano
Probably use him in relief

Is Mateo even enough of a prospect nowadays to headline a Gray deal without Florial?
Dave Cameron
1:20
I don't think so

Dumb question: Is it possible for Team A to trade a player to Team B for a PTBNL, and after season team B trades the traded player back to TEAM A as the PTBNL?
Dave Cameron
1:21
No. A PTBNL cannot appear in the majors after the trade.

How many people are in the chat?
Dave Cameron
1:22
Jotcast says about 1,400
So if you don't get your question answered, try to not get too mad.

A blue jays blog (Blue Jays Nation) suggested that the jays might be looking to trade for Aledmys Diaz of the Cardinals? What would they have to give up? Smith and Estrada enough to get it done?
Dave Cameron
1:22
Cardinals aren't buyers, wouldn't be in on those guys.
1:23
Diaz does seem like a trade chip now that DeJong has taken his job though.

Dave, is Carson a father yet?
Dave Cameron
1:23
He is indeed.

Would you guys consider hiring Rosenthal? He's the class of his business and in my opinion, would take you guys from having a great site, to having the premier site in baseball.
Dave Cameron
1:23
Every baseball site on the planet would love to have Ken Rosenthal.
But we don't have the Dodgers pocketbooks.

Why do I keep hearing LAD does not need another SP?  Do you really trust Wood/Hill/McCarthy to be not only healthy but be effective by the playoffs?
Dave Cameron
1:24
You left Maeda, who is good. Ryu is fine.
1:25
Yes, you can get three good starters out of that five.
Davor
1:25
Rangers seem to be willing to add Claudio to Darvish. Is that package worth Mejia?
Dave Cameron
1:25
Nope
1:26
Shi Davidi says Liriano to HOU pending a physical.
Deadline excitement!
David
1:27
Haven't heard any rumors for Jose Bautista. Seems like he should be a candidate for those who lost on JD Martinez, no?
Dave Cameron
1:27
He'll clear waivers, so he can be traded in August if anyone wants him.

I keep hearing that the Rangers will get a 2017 draftee from the Rockies as they are not yet eligible to be traded. I thought that players had to eligible to be traded at the time of the trade to be on a PTBNL list. Also what about the Trea Turner trade?
Dave Cameron
1:27
They changed the rule after the Turner trade; 2017 draftees can't be traded until this winter.
So it's not a 2017 draftee.

If the A's don't get a package better than mateo+, wouldn't it make more sense to deal Gray in the off season?
