He should stick with “poop” cuz his trade ideas blow.

It was presented to generate discussion. Back off me dude, we’ve all heard it from you many times.

Give it a rest... Focus on the team — not me and your opinion of me.

Speaking of the Rays, I don't know if anyone has mentioned it yet, but I would love to see the Sox look in to what the Rays would want for Charlie Morton. Had a Cy Young type season last year, but is old and only has 2 years left, so I could see the Rays be willing to sell high on him. I wonder if they could work out a package around Reynaldo Lopez and a couple prospects.

Ew.

The Rays got Meadows, Glasnow and Baz for 3 years of Archer.  Snell has 4 years and is actually good.  Robert would have to be in the deal.   

And the Pirates got robbed in that trade.

Madrigal/Vaughn plus Cease gets you pretty close in terms of value for Snell. Maybe TB gets a lower level flyer to round it out?

not saying I would do it, but that’s a potential framework

Todd Ritchie for Wells, Fogg and Lowe all over again...

Happ is probably not going to cost much prospect wise. I wouldn't hate him as a #5.

Did you just compare Ritchie to Blake fricking Snell?

Local guy.  I would assume he'd cost nothing and the Yankees would probably need to pick up some of his deal.

I'm not the one who tried to convince everyone that Todd Ritchie was a #2 starter.

The Rays are never going to trade him for something that's not a complete evisceration of our minor league system...and then it's only going to be based on their projections that 2019 is much more the norm for him (going forward) than 2018.

I’d pass On Happ, especially at $17 million

plenty if cheaper alternatives available, many with more upside

I want nothing to do with a Tampa trade. They almost always win their returns. 

Gallen is the only guy that makes sense outside of Snell to me. And I think Sox would be better off pairing with Dbacks

Happ makes zero sense to acquire when you could’ve just signed Hamels to a similar contract.  And he’s better than Happ.

Unless they attach a quality prospect with him

Well, I would have been fine with Hamels on a one year deal too. I think the Yankees would need to pick up a few million or throw in a low level prospect to sweeten the deal.

If that was the case, I’d eat all of Happ’s remaining contract.  However, Cashman isn’t stupid.

I don't think this is likely, but Happ and Frazier for Basabe/Rutherford/Walker/Collins/Whoever yes please, sign me up.

People sure love to ignore defense around here. 

Who is your ideal RF to acquire then?

Frazier is basically a RHH DH who doesn't walk and doesn't hit for power and doesn't defend and wasn't even good in AAA last year and people want him in RF? I'd literally rather just give Leury those reps

Yep he’s not a good fit and wouldn’t be a “throw-in” prospect

His ISO was better than Abreu's last year.

Rank these guys from who you’d want the most to who you’d want the least:

Blake Snell, Jon Gray, German Marquez, Zac Gallen

Are we supposed to factor in cost of acquisition or is it just most valuable? If it's most valuable, I'd go Gallen, Snell, Marquez, Gray
