YOU SON OF A--
Mark Trumbo
3:54
Does anybody wanna pony up the dough to sign me or should I just go slug 60 bombs in Colorado?
Steve Adams
3:55
I doubt the Rox love the notion of punting the #11 pick (top unprotected pick) for Trumbo. Honestly I don't know who the hell's going to pay him unless he ends up settling for a mediocre three-year deal.
Homers are nice, but Trumbo doesn't bring a ton to the table otherwise.

Alex Colome for Soler, Montero and cash? Maybe a few other moving pieces in there.
Steve Adams

The Rays would have to be really, really sold on Soler's ability to bounce back and to stay healthy (which he's never really been able to do). Colome's value is enormous right now and Soler's stock is down.

For the love of everything holy, who starts in CF for the Cardinals to start the season. **Fingers crossed** please say Kiermaier, please say Kiermaier
Steve Adams

I could say "Kiermaier," but the amount that the Cardinals would have to trade to get him would make you sick, so I doubt you'd be as enthused when all was said and done.

Can reporters stop making up stories so they have something to write about? Give credit to sources who have said Cespedes and Mets are in serious talks and things can get done soon. Stop making stories out of nothing about Cespedes going to the Nats or Yankees.
Steve Adams

So reporters should ignore the fact that Brian Cashman has said, on record, that he's talked to Cespedes. And they should also ignore that the Nats offered Cespedes five years last winter?
You sound like you don't want to accept the possibility that the Mets could very well lose him.

Orioles extend Machado for 275M over 11-13 years?
Steve Adams

Don't think it's enough monye.
Money, even.

Why in the hell did I sign Cashner for 1YR/$10 Mil?
Steve Adams
4:00
Truthfully, I have no idea.
4:01
Usually I try to find the silver lining, but that just seems like a bet on what Cashner was 2-3 years ago, and he very clearly wasn't that in 2016.

Pedro Alvarez to Red Sox?
Steve Adams

Woof. They can do a lot better.
Ok, I've gotta wrap this up for the week. Jason's chatting tomorrow night at 6:30pm CT and Jeff on Thursday at 2pm CT.
Thanks for joining -- we'll do it again next week!
