Correct me if I’m wrong, as I might have missed something, but this “rumored” Fulmer/Bummer/Rivera return is something one of us just made up, right?

Not actually “rumored” at all?

Meh. Depends. It was "rumored" by a rando on twitter. Might as well have something one of us made up.

There’s no concrete evidence to suggest that’s who is involved.

Reuters reporting Realmuto to Dodgers is getting closer.

Maybe they're working on getting this deal official before moving onto Pederson?

If Verdugo is included in the Realmuto deal then I would think Pederson becomes much less expendable.

I would expect Keibert Ruiz to be the centerpiece of this deal.

I think that one guy on Twitter who is now backtracking his comments from yesterday said that is the package. So take it with a huge grain of salt.

raBBit hinted (I believe) that a MLBTradeRumors user who claims the trade is done for Bummer/Fulmer/low level minor leaguer.  Some other twitter rando with like zero followers claims that third piece is Rivera.

Random Twitter account from last night mentioned it. I think it came from somewhere before that though. Probably here.

Ahh, ok. Thanks

Ruiz, Verdugo, Barnes (Marlins have said they want a veteran MLB catcher back in a deal so he can be a throw in)? Or does it need one more lower prospect?

Seems possible/plausible to me that he reason this deal isn’t done yet is because it WON’T happen if the dodgers land realmuto instead. 

If the Realmuto package includes Verdugo, they suddenly kinda still need Pederson. 

Sounds like they felt comfortable signing Pollock once they knew they had the framework for a Joc deal done... that could be executed in the event that Realmuto didn’t get done.

Ruiz and Verdugo both would be a home run for the Marlins.

Bellinger (if Muncy is at 1B), Pollock, Taylor, Hernandez, Toles in the OF still. Could their starting OF be (from LF-RF) Taylor, Pollock, Bellinger without Pederson?

Edit: ...unless they they end up deciding to get really creative to move some money (Hill) for Harper.

Isn't Taylor slated to play 2B?

Probably. Their team has so much versatility. Any other bargain type players they can get a steal on at either 2B or OF in free agency?

I see it more like:

OF Left to Right: Verdugo/Kike, Pollock, Bellinger

IF Left to Right: Turner, Seager, Taylor, Muncy

They definitely have the ability to trade one of Verdugo or Pederson.

There was about a dozen 2B available but they are all gone

Yeah Harrison is the only one left capable of playing everyday.  Marwin can play 2B too I guess.

It would be such a White Sox move to dick around with him and then have Manny signed by the mystery team during SoxFest.

If the Dodgers were willing to trade both Ruiz and Verdugo, I think the deal would have been done a month ago.  This sounds more like the Marlins have finally lowered their asking price.

I still think the Dodgers ultimate plan is to acquire Realmuto for a Ruiz + package, and to trade Pederson for MLB-ready relievers.

They better get this Machado thing done.  If it's only Pederson, it's basically, "Look, here's our participation ribbon in the offseason."  I know it's still looking good, but the longer it goes, the longer you figure it's gonna be bad.

Pederson with Machado is questionable; but to trade for him while not signing Machado is just inane.
