2019 Trade Deadline

Recommended Posts

I wonder how much Milwaukee would trade for Bundy and Givens?  That seems like a good fit for the brewers.  Brice Turang would be an interesting name.  Would add to our depth at SS.

Here’s a good question, what if we would’ve just traded Machado to the Brewers straight up for Huira?  Means we don’t get the LAD package or Brewers package for Schoop.  Going forward would you rather just have Huira, or Diaz/Kremer/Pop/Carrol/Carmona/Ortiz???

Brewers would never trade a prospect like Hiura for a rental.

Right. We couldn't get Gavin Lux from LA. Hiura wasn't a possibility. This goes to my earlier point - quality vs quantity isn't the "seller's" choice.

Yes, I agree that these guys are all within reach of a wild card. The point of my comment, though, was that even the first wildcard isn't worth a major expenditure in terms of trade. Cashner is a logical target for Bubble teams that need pitching, but only because he’s cheap. If he’s not cheap he’s no longer a worthwhile target. So we’re going to trade him for a little or not at all. Givens has even less value and will return even less.

Teams are becoming more aware of the value of their younger players, that’s why there are fewer stupid long-term free-agent contracts. The same applies to breaking the bank for a better chance at a one game playoff. It’s just not a good investment. With that in mind, if we move our assets, we’re not gonna get much for them.

People are still undervalueing Givens.  He has been pretty good since the start of June with era under 3.  His strikeout numbers are great and career highs and still two years plus of control.  Having control of a guy that is pretty cheap is a huge asset.  If he continues strong he will bring back a top 100 guy if traded.  Givens had a tough week stretch but beside that his numbers are solid.

Do people really think this is a choice (quantity vs quality) that the selling team gets to make willingly?

Do they think that the buying team sees a couple mid level prospects equal a top prospect?

It’s amusing that people think DD chose quantity over quality at last year’s deadline and don’t realize that teams weren’t going to give up their top prospects for what we were offering.

I said to the largest degree possible. I didn't say for the best player they have.

You guys say this now. But my question was would you rather have Huira or the all the players from the Dodgers and Brewers trades. With the caveat that we don’t get the Brewers package because they wouldn’t have needed Schoop if they had Manny. 

I know it’s a Huira love fest, but an injury to Kremer, and a semi-slow start to Diaz shouldn’t take away from the two packages. Plus Ortiz could be a solid BP arm and Carmona is a wild card. 

Moving on, I think the Brewers make the most sense for a Bundy/Cashner and Givens package. The question is what would they give up?  Bundy and Givens, even if bullpen arms for them in the playoffs, are huge additions. Is that worth SS B. Turang?  

To me, Bundy to NYY for Frazier is a pipe dream, but Bundy to Mil might be a good fit. Then it’s just a matter of doing a bigger deal to include Givens. I’m all for improving our left side of the IF depth.

I think the issue is that there will be a number of relievers available at the deadline who are better than Givens. Also, Givens made $2M this year - I'm not an expert in arbitration, but he's not going to be "cheap" by the end of that team control either.

I think it is likely that Givens is traded, but I'm not expecting to get anything impressive. But I agree, he's been better and I think a smart front office will be able to see beyond the ugly ERA.

I'd think Milwaukee would pursue Cashner before Bundy - who wouldn't cost that much. I also can't see a cost-conscious team like the Brewers moving their best prospect and a recent first round pick for a bad starting pitcher and a so-so reliever.

It's probably inevitable that Frazier gets traded - but it will be for Bumgarner or Stroman. I'd put my money on a Frazier for Stroman swap.

Couldn’t get Lux? I don’t believe that.

I don’t think his arbitration raises will be very high, especially with only two years before FA. Even if you double twice, from 2 to 4 to 8, hats not much at all.

It makes no sense to pretend that getting Hiura was an option.  It wasn't.

With what I said in previous post here is a few predictions of type of trades I could see.

Cashner to Arizona for Taylor Clark and another prospect around the 30-50 range.   

Villar to Cubs for Oscar DeLa Cruz and Trent Giambrone.

Givens to Pirates for O’Neil Cruz and Max Kranick 

 

Not that I have any attachment to Giambrone or the perpetually hurt De La Cruz, but where would Villar play? The Cubs have Baez,Russell,Descalso,Bote and the newly promoted Robel Garcia who can all play a combination of 2b or SS. That also doesn't account for either Happ or Zobrist who is rumored to be coming back in August or September. If the Cubs need a bat a CFer would be great so Almora's no hitting ass can go somewhere else and Heyward can stick to RF where he's still good defensively.

Yeah I think that is about where he lands unless the teams makes him a closer  but don’t see a team needing a closer right now going after him.  I think if you trade for him you get 2.5 years for about 10-14 million which is a good deal for late inning reliever.

I remember reading that’s who the Os were targeting but that the Dodgers said no.

The question is whether he was off limits or off limits as a piece in the desired package. DD went for quantity in all of the trades. It’s hard for me to believe that Lux and Pop for Manny wouldn’t have worked.

    • Bleier trade continues to bite the O's last night.  Fry  could not find the plate especially against right-handed batters. Needing to face three batter in not Fry's game.    It didn't affect the outcome because the O's didin't  hit.  However, Fry does not look up to being the 2nd lefties in the pen  which shows how much the O's miss Bleier.  Fry would be a candidate to be sent down but there is no lefty to replace him so he will probably stay in the majors.

    • I missed another game. My sleep schedule sleep patterns are SOOOOOOOO screwed up... I laid down for a quick nap before the game about 4:30. When I woke up at MIDNIGHT I had missed the entire thing. Turned on the TV to watch the 11:30 replay and THANK GOD the Gnats are back playing! They're the replay tonight... fml     So.... I'm not going to read the thread or the board. Or Roch. It's 1:30 am. I'm having my "morning" glass of coffee (yes BIG TALL GLASS) and I'm going to watch the 9 am MASN replay "live". So I have THAT going for me. 🙃 GO O'S!!!!
    • And now for something completely different...   NSFW https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpx_VXRG_qc  
    • Now that does make sense: greater risk, greater reward. So do healthy pitchers make more than healthy batters? Serious question.
    • On his pro-rated salary, Cobb would earn @ $4.5MM the rest of this season. That would be nothing for a contending team to take on if they were sold on him putting them over the top. But I can't imagine being so desperate on August 4, 10 games into a 60 game season if I were a decision maker to take on the entirety of his contract.  If a team really wants to gamble a little bit of cash on Cobb to win this year's WS, they may be wrangled into taking half the burden on the 2021 salary, while the Orioles pay half of this season's $4.5MM remaining. This is starting to sound too good to be true!
