Phillies are scouting Sherrill. What would we want in return?

I do not think that the Phillies will trade Taylor (I know that I wouldn't. Kid looks like a monster), but if I could get any player back for Sherill that has been discussed (Bell, Wood, etc.) it would be him. Everything that I have read about him just screams masher at 1B.

If I had my choice between Wood, Bell, and Taylor...

That would be a hard choice, but it would be between Wood and Taylor. As much as I love B. Wood (which I have for years now), I'd go with Taylor. He's younger and can murder the ball.

Taylor is 24 ...so he's not a young prospect from the article someone else posted here. He's blocked by Howard & thats the main reason hes still in the OF. The Phillies are in a win now mode. Sherrill & Baez/Hendrickson make them better.

FYI: RT: @ToddZolecki Carlos Carrasco scratched from today's game in Lehigh Valley. Jason Donald and Lou Marson also out of the lineup.

I didn't see a generic trade thread so I just put it here.

This is interesting.

Those are lesser prospects than one would expect in a Halladay trade, but greater than what I would expect in a Sherrill trade. Either way, if those players are on the move, then Sherrill to the Phillies will be dead.

In reading all this Taylor talk, I kept asking myself why we'd go after an OF, even knowing how amazing he is. Didn't realize we would move him to 1B. That makes much more sense. Thanks for clearing that up.

But it brings to mind another question. Maybe it deserves it's own thread, but which scenario would you prefer for 2010?

Option 1: Wiggy or Huff @ 1B, Wood/Bell at 3B

Option 2:Taylor @ 1B, Wiggy (Huff probably not an option in this case) @ 3B?

It would depend on which of the three players is going to be better ...Personally I would pick up Taylor & i'd be ok with Adrian Beltre (Age 30) at 3B for a couple of years until we have a better option.

Taylor doesn't turn 24 until December.

I doubt the Phils will give him up for Sherrill but if they would, Taylor should be the #1 target...I would trade Sherill for him straight up in a heartbeat.

I really like Bell and Wood but Taylor is a surer thing IMO.

Personally I am glad Donald is gone. I was afraid we would try and get him. Never impressed me at AA, but Taylor is huge. Reminds me of a first baseman in stature vs. an OF. The guy is stacked and hits pure lasers. Talking with some friends I asked do you remember anybody hitting a ball that hard. They all said yes. Guess who? Ryan Howard of course. I have stated numerous times I would do a Taylor straight up for Guthrie or Sherrill. I like him that much. Plus if we get him we can trade Scott for something else if we have a log jam in the OF.

I would hope that they'd switch Reimold or Taylor to 1B if we were to acquire him.

    • I have no problem with the Tigers saying they want the moon and the stars.  Its a negotiating position.  The  Tigers GM and Ownership have to know that no trade has ever happen for a pitcher that is as aggressive that they are asking for.  They don't have to trade Skubal so the O's have to motive the Tigers with what that offer could be. The O's offense is #1 in baseball in Homers, Slugging and Runs per game.    They are first in the AL in OPS.  The O's don't what to damage that.  They are 11th in Average and 15th OBP.  They want to improve that. The need to keep: 1) Holliday because he will bring the high average and OBP the O's need In the future. 2) Basallo.  It's hard to find catchers that can hit and control the running game.  Him first teaming with Adley and a some point replacing Adley is a game changer. 3) Kjerstad is needed to replace Santander unless, unless, unless the O's are willing to extend him for 4/68m.   Which way will Elias and Rubinstein go with that? ------ Mayo with his incredible talent is someone that can head up a package.   Mayo is BA #25 prospect in 2024.  O's #3 prospect. (O's prospect by MLB.com) Bradfield BA #82 prospect in 2024; #4 O's prospect  and Norby BA #93 prospect,  #5 Os prospect with a 911 OPS at AAA  currently are two players the Tigers could pick between. McDermott #7 O's prospect; Povich O's #8 prospect:  and Johnson O's #9 prospect are three future starter that  Tigers could pick between. Elias could add one or two more prospects to this list.    
    • Dodgers and O's have discussed trade talks for Skubal per MLBTR. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2024/07/orioles-dodgers-have-discussed-tarik-skubal-with-tigers.html
    • Are we playing the Blue Jays soon
    • He was scratched due to neck problems 
    • I am guessing Urias could have come in and played, which means he is still on the team.  If not you would have to do Rutchman C (Mullins out of the game, pitcher at DH)... Then who knows, maybe Santander at 2B? Or put Cionel Perez there (he seems like an athletic guy)?  I have to think Urias was available in a pinch. 
    • Huh??? We didn’t sign Corbin Burnes in the offseason. We traded Joey Ortiz, DL Hall and a draft pick for him. Tyler Wells is out until late next year after having Tommy John surgery. For the next 15 years??? Huh? You get 6 full years of team control with any player. My
