Your site had Rosenthal linked to coming back as a starter. I couldn't find mention of that in the link (or anywhere else). Can you confirm?
Jeffrey Todd
3:54
Unless I linked to the wrong story, it's in there from Goold. Wasn't clear that he would actually return as a starter, just that he might work as one in rehab (as I noted). Matheny said it, so it's legit.

You think Jonathan Lucroy (no power) can get Frazier or Zimmer but Bruce cant even get Christian Arroyo. LOL.
Jeffrey Todd
3:55
What's funny is that you obviously aren't aware that Lucroy is a highly talented up-the-middle defender with a cheap contract.
Brian

Jonathan Lucroy makes the Indians so much better. Can you explain why they haven't done it yet? It is a no brainer.
Jeffrey Todd
3:56
They are probably trying to get him at a price they find fair. MIL is trying to extract more from them or another team. This is why it often goes down to the deadline.

you know about lucas harrell but not jay bruce- one of the best NL players- LOL
Jeffrey Todd

I rated him as the #1 trade candidate in baseball for several weeks in our ranking series.
Anyway, no more Bob.

Is Bruce the only red you see being moved?
Jeffrey Todd
3:58
Could well be.

Will the Dodgers pull the trigger on one of Sale or Archer?
Jeffrey Todd
3:58
If they really put Urias on the table, I think the odds are reasonably high.

For Trump you get the GOOD OLD USA BACK!!!! And that my friend IS A WINNER!!!!!!!!!
Jeffrey Todd

I would gladly trade Donald Trump to get the real USA back.
[that's the end of the jokey political banter]
Okay, couple more questions and I have to get back to making up rumors for the website.
I mean, not that!

Is Kurt Suzuki a fallback option for the teams pursuing Lucroy?
Jeffrey Todd
4:01
He is one of several backup catching options out there, and not a bad one. He's already been traded twice at the deadline (both between the A's and Nats) and isn't performing badly.
Actually I mistakenly left him off of the "also considered" portion of my latest trade candidates list ... think I went back and put him in there.
MLBTR question
4:01
Do you ever have current players contact you directly as a source?
Jeffrey Todd
4:02
We have had a few guys alert us to signings and such.

Sabathia have any value on the trade market?
Jeffrey Todd
4:02
That vesting option is a gigantic barrier.
Matt Klentak
4:02
We saw Tulo, Papelbon and Price all traded on this date last year. Maybe the Baseball Gods will bless us with a blockbuster?
Jeffrey Todd
4:03
Never know!
Nate

Who's the better RP target: Jeanmar Gomez or Jeremy Jeffress?
Jeffrey Todd
4:04
Jeffress has more now and future value.
"now value" is a thing, apparently

I think I sent no less than 20 questions.... Skunked.
Jeffrey Todd
4:05
But I noticed this one! Loads of people in here right now so I am just skimming and grabbing what happens to catch my attention.
Doing my best.
One for one

Teheran for Moncada. Do you pull the trigger if you're Coppy?
Jeffrey Todd
4:05
Yes, but it won't be offered.
4:06
And yes, I'm aware that Moncada is a middle infielder, etc, etc, but he's a blue chip prospect and not far from the majors.
Jeff
4:06
Will the Jays trade Bautista.....
Jeffrey Todd
4:06
Almost certainly not.
Casey

Should Royals go full rebuild?
Jeffrey Todd
4:07
They should either sell a few targeted pieces to add some future value and reload a bit for 2017, or begin a massive sell-off that continues into the winter.
