    What would you trade Giolito for

    He's not a rental type, he has 1.5 years. He also has 3 straight years of mid-3s ERA and an xfip lower than his ERA.

    when has anyone ever been impressed by the prospect that came back for taking on salary? Touki Toussaint was probably the most notable...and...whoopeeeee

    No they'd obviously get back more now. Also there is no guarantee he'd be better next year, obviously. And yes, he'd get back cheap talent than Lance Lynn with 2.5 more years left. This isn't hard.

    Trade Rumors Catch-all

    I swore after 2015/6 that finally we'd never have to pay for bonifacio/keppinger type players again and Hahn signed a 80 wrc player for a 3 year deal.

    San Diego at night sucks in summer. I'll take washington dc winters. Is virginia the northeast now too?

    it's a bummer my fake trade of kimbrel to dodgers for Amaya, Outman didn't go through. Pretty sure outman is better than Pollock.

    If I'm Rizzo I'm doing a JR-esque moratorium on dealing with Boras after this. The one guy he ushers to them is Strasburg, now is gonna do this shit.

    Giolito actually brings back cheap talent.

    if they've already told Soto, it's likely they had a contingency for this.

    he should look around the league at what other GMs have built to have constant pipelines of talent to trade and look down at his 30th ranked farm masterpiece. If you had told me in 2019, or this board, that we'd have a 170 m budget, I'd have guessed a brilliant roster. He built the worst possible roster with that 170M. He decided to use his funds and buy a bunch of middle relievers and closers. He couldn't be a worse GM.

    He said that reinsdorf can hit a breaking point and brought up the Gar Forman/John Paxson duo of the bulls, but Paxson by all accounts resigned and pushed Reinsdorf to understand the team needed big overhaul and he couldn't do it anymore.

    I'm going to guess boras is pushing washington to agree to eat hosmer money and try to get him traded to a competitive team. But that team doesn't exist. WAIT HES LEFT HANDED AND SUCKS AT DEFENSE I THINK I KNOW A TEAM

    Paxson resigned.

    Trade Rumors Catch-all

    why are you guys talking like there haven't been plenty of deals? Literally every target that has been mentioned for the sox has moved. One of the best 5 players in baseball has been moved.

    it's no worries. But interestingly the padres org ranking fell into the backhalf of the league. But they still were very top heavy, and had a very good draft last year in Jackson Merrill and James Wood ( they get free draft picks because owners like JR would rather have a less competitive team than share revenue). But they fill up their tanks pretty quickly. Still have Merrill too.

    I would absolutely trade Giolito to cards. There is no point not to this year.

    trying to circle the shittiest player hahn is going to acquire. I think he will go after JD Martinez and puff his chests and our chuck will go "we just got JD fricken martinez!" (no offense). But he is still looking for his masterpiece. There has to be a nomar mazara type hahn still has in him.

    of course they are. Those are two top 15 prospects in baseball, another top 50, a former top ten.

    If that increased the value they got back, that's a great idea from Nats. The shame/conundrum for the Nats, is they had ushered in some of the greatest players in the game, who all chose the agent that they had a very good working relationship with, but was also the one guy who would never let a player sign early. Acuna is locked up. Franco is locked up. Tatis is locked up. Trout was locked up. The nats couldn't lock up harper or soto. It really sucks for them.

    I don't know, I think Cards/Dodgers just had much less urgency to do it.

    Juan Soto/Josh Bell to Padres official

    I'm almost certain hahn will trade for like will myers just to show off how much money he can get Reinsdorf to waste as long as it's not going to one player, theoretically, and setting a standard for labor negotiations.

    I don't really think gore is that interesting. He's a former top prospect who has consistently struggled. He's pretty much the equivelant of Glasnow. The get is 3 top 100 prospects, but now that Bell is in there too, I'd say this just proves how attainable top talent is when you aren't a fucking joke.

    If I were the Cardinals I would be a bit disappointed. I like Jordan Walker way, way, way more than CJ Abrams. But yeah, to have a seat at the table you can't be a fucking lemonade stand doling out jobs to your rich friends kids.
