Ohhh, Houston going to part w/ Fisher and Martes for Britton? Feels risky if he's hurt.
Dave Cameron
1:43
Fisher maybe, Martes no.
Erik
1:44
How much of the return for Wilson was actually the return for Avila? Candelario + Paredes seems roughly in line with Wilson's value all by himself, which makes Avila look like basically a throw-in. Could the Tigers have gotten more by moving him separately?
Dave Cameron
1:45
Don't think there was a big market for Avila. Not a good defender behind the plate, not many teams looking for 1B/DH types.
Gavin
1:45
How much of the buyer's market is teams being more reserved, and how much of it is the QO changes?
Dave Cameron
1:46
QO changes have increased supply of guys at lower prices, but think it's mostly just a weird year where the good teams aren't buying and the wild card contenders aren't very good.
Jerry
1:46
Is Verlander's contract really that crazy? What would he get as a free agent this winter?
Dave Cameron
1:47
Yeah, it's something like double his market value.
On a two year deal, I'd bet he'd get $30-$35M this winter.
Gavin
1:47
The Dodgers are projected for 109 wins and I'm going to be upset if they don't get better. This is the definition of greed.
Scrips
1:48
How much would have to be added to a package headlined by Calhoun for you to trade Darvish?
Dave Cameron
1:48
Don't think Calhoun is Texas' kind of player.
Bo
1:48
Do *all* players involved in a post-7/31 waiver deal have to have cleared waivers?
Dave Cameron
1:48
Only guys on the 40 man.
Erik
1:49
Are you saying McCullers should be in the pen in October?
Dave Cameron
1:49
I think the Astros will have very loose definitions of starters and relievers in October.
Maybe McCullers pitches innings 1-3 or 1-4, but none of these guys are going to be asked to go deep besides Keuchel.
The Mooch
1:49
Kyle Hendricks has 91 xFIP- too, so that's good right?
Dave Cameron
1:50
Yeah, the guy who finished second in the Cy Young award voting last year sucks. Good call!
1:51
Nori Aoki is going to TOR in the Liriano trade.
Interesting. Maybe to clear a roster spot for Fisher?
Anon
1:52
Do the Yankees get a true 1B?
Dave Cameron
1:52
Talk is Bird might be back in a few weeks, so I'm guessing no.
Tom
1:52
What in your mind is a fair deal in the Yankees-A's trade?
Dave Cameron
1:54
Two of Adams/Florial/Mateo, plus some lottery ticket guys.
Ben
1:54
Could the Dodgers use a 2-headed 4th starter in the playoffs? Start Maeda with Ryu behind him. Maeda/Ryu could combine to get through the order 3 times without facing the TTO penalty.
Dave Cameron
1:54
Yep. The back-end starters just don't need to pitch more than a few innings in October.
Josiah
1:55
If you were Andrew Friedman, would you be willing to give up any of vertigo/alvarez/buehler for the guys (Britton, gray, darvish etc) who are available?
Dave Cameron
1:55
No
1:56
Though if Verdugo has vertigo maybe I'd sell high.
Actually, just realized I mis-read the question. I'd happily give up Alvarez for Gray. I thought you were packaging those guys.
1:57
Brewers get Jeffress back, probably for almost nothing.
Nikos
1:58
Who are some of the most successful "lottery ticket" guys that have been included in deals?
Dave Cameron
1:58
The Mariners got David Ortiz back when he was David Arias and a low-A upside guy.
Boomer
1:59
The Rockies trades for Neshek and Lucroy...beneficial for them without giving away the farm, right???
Dave Cameron
1:59
Yeah, I like their moves here.
Neshek especially.
Blue
2:00
Instead of Verdugo/Buehler, would it make sense for the Dodgers to look at giving up ML guys (Stripling, Ryu) for Darvish or Gray? Would the A's/Rangers want that?
Dave Cameron
2:00
I wouldn't be shocked if Ryu was in a Darvish deal.
