Legally, yes.
Kevin Cash

does Matt Andriese hold any trade value?
Jeffrey Todd
4:00
Yes, but more value to Rays.

Joey Gallo Jurickson Profar Lewis Brinson Dillon Tate Yohander Mendez and Travis Demeritte for Quintana and Abreu?
Jeffrey Todd
4:01
This proposal needs more confusing names to be plausible.
CdnYanksFan

Chapman, Gardner & Tanaka gets us Giolito, Turner, Lopez & maybe another piece?
Jeffrey Todd
4:01
That is not a well-conceived trade scenario.
And no, it wouldn't.
Jeff
4:01
Longoria trade?
Jeffrey Todd
4:02
No indication that's likely.
Coppy

Am I looking at Derek Norris?
Jeffrey Todd
4:02
I can see it, sure. Depends if they like him.
Joe

Phillies have a unique catching situation. Wouldnt it make more sense to trade Cameron Rupp than Carlos Ruiz. Rupp is outperforming anything in his previous career, while Ruiz is in line with how he has performed. Plus, I'd rather have Ruiz mentoring Knapp/Alfaro
Jeffrey Todd

Chooch is a FA. And nobody is going to go coughing up a big return for Rupp just based on the hot start. If anyone is going to take a chance on it being legit, it's the Phils. Don't see him being dealt.
Cameron
4:04
Hearing a lot about Yanks wanting to trade Chapman but not a lot about Beltran. Who are some good fits team-wise and prospects to target?
Jeffrey Todd
4:05
You're right, we haven't heard a lot on him. Could be b/c there are so many other corner OF possibilities. I haven't really thought about fits, honestly.
Rick Saunders
4:05
Return for hellickson after that dominate start?
Jeffrey Todd
4:05
More or less the same as before. It helps that he's throwing well, of course, but teams know who he is.
Yunel
4:06
any chance I'm going anywhere?
Jeffrey Todd
4:06
Yeah, if there's some demand. They'd probably be happy to keep him, too.
Reds
4:07
Should we buy into Duvalls breakout season or trade him?
Jeffrey Todd
4:07
He's not going anywhere.
Zach
4:08
Could you see someone trade for Galvis/C Hernandez?
Jeffrey Todd
4:08
Meh. I mean, utility guys like that change hands a lot, so sure, but neither is going to return much.
Richard
4:08
Why does Cashner have more trade value than E. Santana? He is a 4 inning starter with injury concerns in my opinion.
Jeffrey Todd
4:09
Who says he does? Different teams will have different views on that, both b/c of scouting and need. Santana's contract is a bit riskier, just b/c of the extra year and dollars, but he is durable as they come.

Include Miller in this suggestion, would that do it? Chapman, Gardner & Tanaka gets us Giolito, Turner, Lopez & maybe another piece? It would sure make the Nats WS favs this year & possibly next.
Jeffrey Todd
4:10
Now you're going into the dangerous range of adding players on each side to balance things out. It's an indication that the whole scenario isn't really feasible.
Not trying to be harsh, just giving you my thoughts on it -- Giolito/Turner aren't going anywhere.

Excellent chat so far today, I love all of the direct answers and no dodging of questions.
Jeffrey Todd

Thanks!

Might as well go back to ESPN, all I see are Cubs questions
Jeffrey Todd

LOL
Sodo Mojo

Thoughts on Kyle Lewis blowing up his knee?
Jeffrey Todd
4:12
Just that it sucks but he'll be fine. Got some good professional exposure under his belt and will be back and fine soon enough.
Dustin
4:13
Have you ever seen a farm system transformed so dramatically, for the better, in one year as the Padres system has? And by all accounts, they may not be finished.
Jeffrey Todd
4:13
The Braves did something similar recently, IIRC.
Teams can do this with the full-blown teardown.
Andrew Cashner
4:13
If I shave my beard will that change anything?
Jeffrey Todd
4:13
You'll still have a less manly beard than I do, so no, not really.
