Does the Webb deal mean cashman is brewing a Hand trade?
Jeffrey Todd
2:41
That would be a ... fairly tenuous connection to make.

What big bat is mostly likely dealt to the Cardinals by the deadline?
Jeffrey Todd
2:41
Now there's a possible JDM fit. But will they do it for a rental? Odds are STL isn't going to be leading the division at the deadline, and they're still looking over at the Cubs and even the Pirates.
2:42
And they have the young guys they've invested in as well as Fowler in the OF. Tough spot.
2:43
I kind of get the idea that STL would be interested in someone like Donaldson -- though that seems a reach -- and maybe they'd try to pull off something where they give up 5 years of Grichuk + prospects (or whatever) to get back 2 years of a better veteran player. But they aren't going to go nuts on a move that can only help in '17.

What are the chances that deGrom is traded?
Jeffrey Todd
2:43
Very low

Will the Braves REALLY hang onto Matt Adams?
Jeffrey Todd
2:44
I think they are willing to deal him. But could still hold if Freeman is happy enough at third and there isn't much trade interest. Could wait til the offseason.

Could Lance Lynn fetch a top 100 prospect?
Jeffrey Todd
2:45
Ehhhh ... maybe. ERA estimators are not in love with him this year.
Likely to stay home anyway.

Astros are going to go after Julio Teheran, right?
Matt

What package from the braves do the tigers get for Fulmer
Jeffrey Todd
2:46
I could see Houston going hard for Fulmer moreso than Teheran.
And I still don't get this idea that the Braves are going to .... I don't know, trade for a high-quality, multi-year starter and then deal away Teheran.
2:47
Just don't get it. I think they'd have to overpay for the one and sell short on the other.
Trevor Cahill
2:47
Will I be traded??
Jeffrey Todd
2:47
That kinda has to happen, unless the Padres work something out to keep him around I guess.

Are you excited that you will no longer be getting 100s of Quintana questions every chat?  Or will you miss the Quintana Crew in a week or two?

If you are Mets GM and you are offered the Quintana package for DeGrom, do you pull the trigger?
Jeffrey Todd
2:48
He's much more valuable than Q
(So no.)

Darvish to the Astros?
Jeffrey Todd
2:49
Could see HOU with real interest. That's a great target for them. They have guys that can give good innings. They don't need wins down the stretch. They need a really good starter for a postseason series.
2:50
Of course, that assumes the Rangers will sell. As we saw today, deals among rivals can be done. I'm all for it, just b/c it'll make things more interesting as we see how it plays out.

Does Rick Hahns pillaging of the Cubs give some cover to WAS for the Eatin trade fallout?
Jeffrey Todd
2:51
I never thought that trade was anything but fair.
Whoa interesting ...

Colby Rasmus has decided to "step away" from game, placed on restricted list by #Rays, not expected to return this season
brb ...
2:53
So ... sounds not so great for Rasmus. That sucks.
2:54
And that creates at least some space for the Rays to consider an OF, though that's hardly necessary.

Poll should be. Can Teheran get close to what Quintana brought in?

If the Phillies get Stanton and Yelich, are we contenders in 2018?
Jeffrey Todd
2:56
Let's bear in mind that there's really no reason to think that's even under consideration.
But no, not unless lots of other stuff also happens.
