Hi! Pretty quiet here ...
No big trade rumors, etc.
12:19
Okay perhaps there are. Impromptu chat ... spotty internet ... let's see what happens.
brian
12:19
what a trade wow
Jeffrey Todd
12:19
Still don't know the rest of the pieces.
For those catching up ... the rumor is Sale for Moncada + Kopech.
Sox
12:20
Chances sox use Drew Pomeranz as a multi-inning high leverage reliever next year?
Jeffrey Todd
12:20
They now have a SP to deal, or they'll be shoehorning someone into the pen.
Joe
12:20
Does the Chris Sale trade mean the Nationals are willing to give up more for McCutchen?
Jeffrey Todd
12:20
No, I don't think so. They will hold on their offer for him.
Chris
12:21
Does this mean Moncada back to his natural 2nd base position?
Jeffrey Todd
12:21
No rush to decide, but clear path there, yeah.
Kevin
12:21
What did the Nats offer for Sale?
Jeffrey Todd
12:21
Let's compare what we've heard ...
Robles < Moncada
Giolito = (?) Kopech
12:22
hard to tell on that second group -- obv Giolito has the past label as a blue chipper, but rough year and Kopech is a very high upside arm who will rise a lot on rankings
Curious
12:23
If you could speculate, what teams are in on Dozier?
Jeffrey Todd
12:23
On paper, the Dodgers and Angels make sense. But there aren't a lot of really clear matches. If you assume he's desirable enough for teams to shuffle around assets when they get him, that opens things up.
Ian
12:23
Any chance Robertson is also part of this deal
Jeffrey Todd
12:24
Just got Thornburg, so I'm not seeing that.
I was curious whether Frazier could also be involved though.
No reporting suggesting that, but why not?
Jeff Bridich
12:24
Who plays 1b for me next year?
Jeffrey Todd
12:24
Well, the White Sox might have a guy available.
12:25
Big question is whether this means CWS is primed for a fire sale. If so ... big market shift in several arenas. Includes 1B.
Hunter
12:25
Money seems like the only thing stopping the Indians from getting EE, right?
Jeffrey Todd
12:25
You sure he wants to play in Cleveland? But yeah.
12:26
Presumably it would be like 3/$60MM with an opt out after one year. Would be pretty disappointing if that's what he ends up with, IMO.
Course if the price got to that point, maybe other teams (Rangers?) get more involved.
BTW multiple reports: Swihart not in the Sale sale. 2 younger guys it seems.
Ofàa
12:27
Do you see the Red Sox going after Turner Now?
Jeffrey Todd
12:27
Need a third baseman, but no particular reason to expect that.
fish
12:27
Seems like blue jays getting.left behind in division
Jeffrey Todd
12:28
Remember that it's not about winning the offseason.
Tom
12:28
Should the Yankees offer Tanaka to the nats?
Jeffrey Todd
12:28
They don't need to add a SP.
Sandy
12:28
So I guess Gio Gonzales not available to the yanks for Gardner? Why would the Nats (if they did) float he would be available if Sale goes through? Doesn't that put them in a tough spot with him now?
Jeffrey Todd
12:28
Perhaps not, at least not yet. Still could make sense even w/out a Sale trade, though.
Mike Grant
12:28
Don't forget Kopech was suspended for PEDs and injured himself in a confrontation with a teammate
