Talk about trading away the whole farm. Shelby Miller deal all over again.

Odds that Ryan Braun is traded to LAD?
Jeffrey Todd
1:01
Still makes sense on paper. Odds? Shrug.

Heard chatter on MLB radio this morning that Milwaukee might consider moving Villar. Thoughts on Villar+Braun to the Dodgers for Puig, DeLeon, Bellinger and another prospect? Villar can lead off and play second, assuming they resign Turner. Or Villar at short, Seager to third and sign someone cheaper than Turner to play second.
Jeffrey Todd

Villar could well be available and could well interest LAD and could well make more sense as a 2B than a SS. Again, though, very tough to gauge odds. But the general concept is in a reasonable range.

Has Giolito really fallen that much? Seems like Giolito and Robles is a bigger combo than Moncada and Kopech, at least by prospect rankings. Also, I'd rather the Nats go for Eaton if the WS are selling. Any news to that effect?
Jeffrey Todd
1:03
First off, Moncada is basically the top overall guy. And he's a position player.
Secondly, Kopech will be flying up the charts. If anything, Giolito will fall.
Eaton makes some sense, sure, but I still like him better in corner OF. Maybe he moves there after Werth leaves, though.

Ok since CHW in sell mode: Michael Wacha, Matt Adams and Jack Flaherty for Adam Eaton? Who says no?
Jeffrey Todd
1:04
Last years Michael Wacha would make this interesting.
As it is, not even close.
1:06
Less Sox questions plz ...
ADAM
1:06
are the giants kicking the tires on trade for outfielder or they are done?
Jeffrey Todd
1:06
Doubt they are done.
Dave
1:07
I read that the Cubs may be interested in the Mets Starting pitchers, which matchup would make sense for both teams?
Jeffrey Todd
1:07
I don't doubt they would be, but I'm not sure how they'd really match up.
Will

Talk me off the ledge Jeff, tell me mozeliak isn't really considering jarrod bleeping dyson as his centerfield option.
Jeffrey Todd
1:07
Speed and glove give him a high floor. Pair with a right-handed platoon option.
1:08
Good backup plan if nothing else, esp if they put $ elsewhere (say, Justin Turner).
Jon Daniels

What's a feasible package for Billy Hamilton to the Rangers?
Jeffrey Todd
1:09
I think Cinci will want a really good piece for Hamilton. It isn't like they have a strong need to move him, he's another decent floor guy, and if the bat continues to improve he could be a really nice player.
Don't see that coming together.
Jason

Is the market for McCutchen now between Nats and Rangers? Do Rangers have the pieces?
Jeffrey Todd
1:10
Of course they do.
Reports of Giolito and Robles in a deal for Cutch never made any sense to me.
He's not worth that.

Gennett or Villar are probably available following the trade for Travis. What would LAA need to give up for either. (I understand well that Villar would be much more expensive).
Jeffrey Todd
1:11
MIL would've NTed Gennett if he didn't take a fair bit less than he would've gotten in an arb hearing. So he's rather available.
They probably only kept him as insurance if Villar is dealt, or perhaps as a utility guy.
Anthony
1:13
Is Cutch worth Giolito or is Lopez the best the Pirates can expect from Washington
Jeffrey Todd
1:13
Lopez might be a better prospect.
Sighern
1:13
Would Matz and Amed Rosario be enough to land McCutchen?
Jeffrey Todd
1:13
You should not wish for your team to offer that package.
Matt
1:14
Let's be honest... Arizona could have gotten Sale for Dansby, Inciarte and another piece, right?
Jeffrey Todd
1:14
If they had those guys on their roster now -- after another high-value year -- yeah, probably.
Drew

Thoughts on the Rangers trading Profar to SD for prospects? Rebuild their farm some?
Jeffrey Todd
1:14
Profar doesn't have much value. TEX seems to believe in him still, so they should keep giving him a shot til they don't anymore.
1:15
Okay I'm going to have to wrap it up in a few ...
ED
1:16
Are SF Span, Nunez ,Cain and Belt on the block too?
