It has to be BS cause Vaughn is off limits.

I would imagine so, although I’m sure if the Brewers were willing to trade Woodruff & Hader for a package based around Vaughn & Dunning Hahn would make an exception.

Again, please not Gonzalez.  Little worried after that Merkin “think controllable” tweet.

lol @ arterisk season, this isn't an Astros championship. In 5 years no one will remember just like '81 was a strike shortened season. Does that dodger WS have an asterisk? in any fans mind?

1981 and 2020 are nothing alike. This will always be an asterisk season, much more than 1981. If the final four in each league are eight teams that won divisions or 35+ games in the regular season, then it becomes a smaller asterisk. But it’s good for baseball that they’re still going and the players there are trying to win.

Dark horse target: Freddy Peralta 

Would be interesting but he isn't stretched out to start

My honest feeling is do not overpay for control. Get the best guy at the price you feel comfortable

This will be a fun weekend following these rumors. It's about time we're buyers! I'm all for going for it, as long as we don't sacrifice everything for one or two years of going for it.

What is awful about trading for the best reliever in all of baseball and a legitimate SP1/SP2 who are controlled for the next 3-4 seasons for two minor leaguers?

Why?  Hader is the best closer on the planet and Woodruff is a controllable #2

It would be the biggest no-brainer trade ever

Imagine a bullpen with Bummer and Hader. Also what do you think it’d take for Hader, woodruff, and Yelich? I think I’d do Vaughn, Kopech, stiever, Collins, and probably more.

If you can get Woodruff and Hader, you do it. I don't think that trade is a real possibility but if it were real, the Sox should absolutely do that.

Ok, I walk back what I said. If Yelich is in there, I would do that trade With that stated, I don't see the Sox taking on all of that money.

Absolutely. Especially when Bummer gets back. Being able to throw both of those guys gives us one of the best bullpens in baseball, one is the best lineups, and a much more solid rotation for the playoffs.

No fucking way.

Why? He's more of a long play and he misses a lot of bats.

The thing with the Brewers is that they need help everywhere besides RF and 2nd base. Especially if the DH stays in the NL.

Josh Nelson seems to think it's for lower tier type players from Milwaukee like Anderson and or Phelps?

We don’t need a long play right now, we’re looking for help for our playoff rotation.

And trading DeGrom for a PTBNL as the headliner amongst other parts would set NYC into full blown meltdown mode. Not good optics for their FO if that was the case. 

I’d rather give up nothing for Robby Ray than mortgage the future for Lynn or Marco fuckin’ Gonzalez.

Yeah, but he's stretched about the same as Lopez. If they'd stretch Lopez they should be able to stretch Peralta.
