Dodgers Trade: Thoughts?

Recommended Posts

Think it is a little much. I would put Gonzalez instead of Gausman, throw in another prospect. But the key would be what Buck, and Adam Jones, think. Can they impact Puig. Adam could be a very positive influence or it could blow up in a hurry.

Dodgers have better prospects and Anderson is cheaper, better long term, and maybe better this year, than Gonzalez.

Any chance of getting Van Slyke added to this deal? (I am a big fan of his and he owes one after the season his dad put up here lol)

Doesn't make sense for me. Interested in Puig without including Gausman.
Me too. Basically a Puig for Britton trade. Leave it at that or throw in a lesser SP, like Wilson/Wright.

Would Britton by himself get Holmes? If not what else would need to be added:subtracted?

Maybe. Depends on what else the Dodgers might try to land with him, I guess.

You could probably take a hard line if the Dodgers are bent on moving Puig and are having trouble finding any dance partners. If there's any interest, I don't think folks will shrug off the fact Puig is under control longer and is probably at least a 2 win player at $8-9 MM a year (with upside as a 3, 4, or even 5 win player at $8-9 MM a year).

Kind of eviscerates the pitching staff, and takes on a ton of risk with Puig. Orioles would have to come up with a bunch of complimentary signings/acquisitions to make up for the loss of Gausman and Britton. What was Puig's injury story this past year? It kind of got lost in the "Mattingly hates him" storyline.

You swap out Gausman for Anderson. Britton for Puig. I wouldn't say it eviscerates the staff. You would need to find another starter, and you hope that given the number/quality of arms available you can find one or two options.

Re: injury, depends on who you talk to. Some say hammy bothered him the whole second half. Some say he didn't want to re-injure and wasn't playing hard enough. Some say he's just an ass and isn't quite talented enough to be worth it (e.g. he's not Manny Ramirez good, but he's a Manny Ramirez pain in the ass).

From what we are hearing lately everyone hates him He would bring a lot of baggage, Could destroy the clubhouse as he has apparently done in LA. I'd wait and see how desperate they are. Mean time I would just as soon sign Son or Span or Zobrist.

It was mostly hamstrings. Puig was an infuriating fantasy property this year, play was lukewarm at best, and was always hurt

4.25 - day to day after aggravating left hamstring

4.26 - goes on 15 day DL

5.8 - leaves rehab game with recurrence

6.6 - finally reactivated

8.19 - pulled from game with leg injury, MRI reveals mild right hamstring strain, he does not go on DL here, club takes it day to day

8.27 - removed from game after "reinjuring" right hamstring, goes on DL

10.3 - reactivated

In sum, separate month long absences for each hamstring (kind of the opera of Machado's knees over the last few years compressed into one season).

I have read the Dodgers want him to get leaner this offseason, so gather they think he was too muscle-bound.

I am definitely interested in taking a hard look at Puig. Have Buck meet with him, see he thinks it can work.

I would look for a trade centered around Britton.

I'm in the camp that would stick to Britton for Puig - and you can make small adjustments to that.

I would NOT trade Gausman - period. I think he'll be a 1 or 2 starter, and he certainly doesn't have the trade value of a 1 or a 2.

A major point of trading for Puig is that he's under-valued. I don't think the OP idea reflects that. Another point is that LA can spend like nobody else. Take advantage of that. It's a reason they would consider Britton for Puig.

You swap out Gausman for Anderson. I wouldn't say it eviscerates the staff.

All I know about Anderson is what I've looked up in the past five minutes. At very first glance it seems he had a mediocre year in AA at 23, with worse K/BB than Gausman had in the majors. You say he projects as a #2-4, why hasn't that manifested itself in his performances yet? What happened at the end of the year with the 15 runs in six innings in AAA?

Re: injury, depends on who you talk to. Some say hammy bothered him the whole second half. Some say he didn't want to re-injure and wasn't playing hard enough. Some say he's just an ass and isn't quite talented enough to be worth it (e.g. he's not Manny Ramirez good, but he's a Manny Ramirez pain in the ass).

Thanks. I know there's talent there, but it just seems like a big risk of a huge debacle.

Considering Anderson is the best pitcher in that deal... sure. Bundy is done and Guasman just has not found a good secondary pitch.

    • It’s a supply and demand thing.  Whether someone offers X amount of dollars is irrelevant.  The Os And their structure, could use his bat and his production.   Most teams don’t have that combo of at bats and money they can spend on a player with his skill set.     The Os do...and the idea that other teams chose not to do it is irrelevant to his value to this organization.  The idea that they may be looking into Puig (conjecture) and brought on a LH DH type at REINFORCES the idea that this is salary driven, not producing driven imo.     My only argument with this decision is that this isn’t solely or even largely driven by roster management despite what Elias says.  He is lying for management.
    • Your tone of authority when you are clearly in a fog is admirable.  Anyone who thought his arbitration number was a bargain, as you suggest, could have offered a warm body to secure his services before he hit the open market.  What won't make sense is if any team offers him 2M or more now that he's available to any team that wants him.
    • There are three vaccines, possibly four or five, if you trust the Chinese and Russians. Every factory on the world is going to be producing them. We may delay the start of spring training(only three months away) but I don’t think the season will start late. We may have distanced crowds, though.
    • No, it absolutely is the formula and what’s he’s worth.  That’s a fact. However, there are only a few teams that need a DH, so it’s not surprising that the market isn’t there..plus, you have announced that you are cutting him, so why trade for him with so little completion?
    • Nevin may get reps at 3B, LF, and DH.  Shaw fits in well as a 1B, LF, DH option too
