    I’m not sorry - the Corbin Burnes thread

    Problem they already lost Q on the cheap while being strung along by MIL and now RH could get overriden again by JR and his boy, this time with truly catastrophic consequences.

    Or MIL is just trying to squeeze us for more at the last second by playing divide and conquer knowing the owner and manager have hijacked control from the FO and are willing to sacrifice the long term for the short term, so they figure they might as well try to benefit from that.

    Yeah I just saw the latest note from one of the foodies. From what I can tell, it seems they broke down and finally said OK to including Kelley thinking MIL would say OK but now MIL is trying to push for one of the big three as well and the FO is drawing the line there and saying no, so there's a standoff.

    Vaughn plus Madrigal, Heuer, Kelley would be absolutely horrendous. Just take Richards and keep all the talent. Vaughn should be totally off limits

    Yeah....Kelley hurts and so does Heuer but it seems Heuer was gone in one deal or another as they wanted to sell high. Madrigal going is certainly far more palatable than Vaughn/Kopech/Crochet and probably was a prerequisite to La Stella signing on the dotted line. Narvaez is meh....I actually would prefer giving Zack Collins a chance to back up Grandal and get 40 games in but TLR prolly wants a vet.

    Agreed or just keep them for the second part of the window. Just because JR is unwilling to pay money and both he and TLR have no incentive to care about the long term doesn't mean we deserve to have our window slashed in half.

    I’m not sorry - the Corbin Burnes thread

    There was the suggestion (not by Jimmy but rather I think maybe Harold) that Kelley and Madrigal was not going to be enough and so there would be other headliners so I am really concerned about that. I get La Stella isn't gonna come if Madrigal is still there, but I'd say I wish they took Q at 1/8 because even Kelley is probably going to be a painful loss down the road.

    Jimmy, whats the damage? Whats the compensation going to MIL? Is Vaughn/Kopech involved?

    I’m not sorry - the Corbin Burnes thread

    I will be royally pissed if Kopech is moved on this trade. Harold seemed to be implying he would. I sure hope not. Man Q was available for real cheap without destroying what is needed for the second part of the window. This is so dumb. Don't trade Kopech or Vaughn or Crochet

    I’m not sorry - the Corbin Burnes thread

    You know if they want they could squeeze both Brantley and La Stella in there if they traded for Burnes. If Brantley really ends up having to settle for 2/24. Between that and say 1/7 for La Stella, if they only have to pay Burnes like 500k....thats 19.5 added, but if ReyLo is getting moved plus Madrigal, Heuer from the roster you can shave about 3m off of it (plus ofcourse prospects but there are no monetary savings there), that's 16.5 which is pretty damn close enough.

    I’m not sorry - the Corbin Burnes thread

    How would that benefit MIL? I'm confused.
  12. SoCalChiSox

    I’m not sorry - the Corbin Burnes thread

    Maybe we need to include a third team to send Madrigal too so they can send MIL something they want since they don't need 2B. I really don't want to give up Kopech or Vaughn. From C*shek's reaction something could very well be going down.
  13. SoCalChiSox

    I’m not sorry - the Corbin Burnes thread

    Harold is saying it will take even more than Madrigal and Kelley. That already is alot. If he's suggesting Kopech or Vaughn too that would be horrific.

    I’m not sorry - the Corbin Burnes thread

    This makes me very nervous because major assets would have to be going the other way and im worried about Kelley.

    $15m and two moves to finish the roster

    Ahh i see....I bet he is waiting to see then whether Madrigal is moved in a trade.
  16. SoCalChiSox

    $15m and two moves to finish the roster

    Whats taking so long on the La Stella front? TLR is pushing hard for him so I thought they would have signed him by now.
  17. SoCalChiSox

    $15m and two moves to finish the roster

    This would be ideal but it seems unlikely La Stella would accept 5 and Q would accept 8. 7 and 10 is more likely which by itself would be 2m over budget and even that would not address backup C either assuming TLR is not a fan of Collins.
  18. SoCalChiSox

    Jose Quintana...Signs with Angels (1YR 8M)

    Yes that would be ideal. I think they are trying to wait Q out right now to see if he accepts their price but if push comes to shove they may need to move ReyLo to get that 2m off the books to make the math work for both Q and La Stella.

    Jose Quintana...Signs with Angels (1YR 8M)

    I'd much rather take Q as a 4/5 rather than trade Kelley because the foodies are suggesting that right now thats whats holding up the trade route since other teams want him. We need to keep some good SP prospects for the second part of the window.

    New Rumor from Hector

    That rules out resigning with MIN

    New Rumor from Hector

    Well the only alternative in our price range appears to be Richards. I'd prefer Q as a nice bounceback candidate. As a 4/5 he is perfectly good.
  22. SoCalChiSox

    New Rumor from Hector

    I'd be fine with Q.
  23. SoCalChiSox

    New Rumor from Hector

    And? We play righties 70%+ of the time and the rest of the lineup are lefty killers so we would be just fine against them even with Joc.

    New Rumor from Hector

    I feel bad for Hector. He is a nice man but his sources have been poor for awhile and people have been using him to spread false interest in order to try and generate offers for their clients.
