the Corbin Burnes thread **on ice***

Trading Cease for Burnes almost makes no sense to me. It doesn't solve the rotation and forces the Sox to go get another starter.

Fully agree.

Madrigal, Heuer, Dalquist is what my gut says

There's no way that's enough. I think if the Sox aren't moving Vaughn, Kopech, Crochet, (maybe) Cease, then Kelley has to be the big piece.

What about TA + prospects for Burnes?

Brewers need a SS. TA is great but Sox can fill his spot by bringing Semien back, or Madrigal to SS and sign Cesar Hernandez

 

😂🤣 but who's going to play catcher then?

Alright, say you have $15M to work with and you trade Madrigal, Heuer, Stiever, & Kelley for Burnes.  How do you cap off the offseason?

Sign a 2B since you just traded your's away, hahaha

Maybe Cease & Madrigal + lottery ticket

Madrigal shifts Hiura to 1B 

Cease doesn’t necessarily replace Burnes but the Brewers see the upside this offseason in Dylan. 


That’d be a pretty fair deal IMO

I still Brantley gets like 2/$28M and that doesn’t really work for us with Vaughn in the mix.  I’d rather sign Cruz to a 1/$15M deal in all honesty.

Sounds like Brantley is likely going to Jays

I love the potential of Nick Madrigal but I'm in for trading him for potentially one of the best SP in baseball. We'll get to watch him hit .360 against the Cubs.

Nick's gonna hit. A lot.

I lean towards LaStella. He's essentially a left handed Madrigal with more pop. Dude walks a ton too. Might have some pull too with his supposed relationship with LaRussa. If not him, I'd entertain the thought of checking in on Semien and his willingness (or unwillingness) to move to 2B.

La Stella seems like a no brainer to me.

One of these thing is true, the other is false.  Also, he doesn't have sources.

Who would you rather follow on twitter, Josh or PNoles?

Avi is owed $12M guaranteed through 2021 plus the 2022 buyout.  Brewers are hard up for cash.  

Sox can send Madrigal, Engel, Heuer, Kelly and take back Burnes and Avi.

Avi plays LF and pushes Eloy to DH and is a temporary Vaughn blocker.

BTW I forgot to add that this is an answer to the $15M left over question.
