Thanks. Quite a few Texas bloggers are holding out hope. They also like Yermin Mercedes. Might be able to pull off Steiver and Mercedes for Lynn. Also, might be able to pry away a relief pitcher if Dunning and Mercedes. 

There is no way Steiver and Mercedes get Lynn back when other teams are allowed to give better offers.

We have no idea what’s being offered.

I'm with Brian Anderson. I am not into making trades right now. Looks like the Sox are going to the post season and young players are getting a chance to get playing time. The rebuild has taken time; it can take a little more. Make some serious moves in the off season and the team can go from there.

i know this guy is considered fake news but I think he’s hit before. Just something to talk about.

How about we trade Eloy and Yoan too? Then we can have a ton of guys under control for decades. 

 

I'm getting sick of this. Lets reward the guys for playing well. Push some cards forward and give them a legit chance to win the World Series. Can you imagine how this club would be next year if they go deep or win the World Series? All that playoff experience already? It gives me chills. Wasting time and banking on a bunch of moves to come together next offseason just sounds like a mess.

Honestly I hope Not Steve is right that we are talking to the D Backs about Starling Marte. That’s who we should have acquired in the first place for RF... he would literally make this lineup a complete, no easy out lineup... aside from maybe EE. 

I wanted Marte last offseason so I’d love this. Definitely an upgrade from Mazara and he answers your RF hole for next season as well.

I don’t think we have the prospect currency to add a legit TOR and Marte without really hurting ourselves long-term.

Marte shouldn’t cost much.

He’s got like a 130 wRC+ / 1.2 fWAR on the year and has an option for 2021 at $12.5M.  Unless the economic situation impacts things (which is possible) I don’t think he comes cheap.

They got him for two 50 FV prospects last offseason. And yes he’s off to a nice start this season but he also now has just 1 season and 1 month of control left so the price tag shouldn’t be any higher than that. Something like Stiever and Thompson/Adolfo should get it done. Yes please.

I can totally see a 3 way deal where the Indians get Gallo for Clevinger and then Texas sends Clevinger elsewhere for prospects.

This would hopefully take them out of the Clevinger derby..

I think the prospect of us getting him from Cleveland is close to 0

Highly doubt we are in the Clevinger derby and it was a smokescreen. No way Cleveland gives him to us when we are tied atop the division

I think that the odds are not great but I’d put it higher than zero. Indians are always trading pitchers. Also a bunch of smoke. Rosenthal being the most reputable to confirm that they are talking

One tweet from Rosenthal makes me feel that it may be a little more than that
