Trade hypothetical offered up just now on MLBN:

Dbacks send Grienke and $20M to the Astros for Beer and Corbin Martin.


That's a deal I'd take. What do you guys think?


I'd pass on that. Seth Beer is our 1B of the future.
Or is that Yordan / Ted?

Yes you do that deal but doubtful Martin gets traded with being out next season

checking in with Keuchel...

he has a big start tonight on the road vs. the Nationals.

so far he's 3-3 with a 3.50 ERA in 7 starts for the Braves

I would smear the ink on the paperwork and pull a hamstring I would sign that so fast. But I don't think Arizona is Toronto level stupid.


I could see a Forest W, Seth Beer, Tony Kemp for Greinke trade...

I think this would be a good deal.

After this season, Cole is likely gone and that would give the Astros JV and Greinke. The problem is -- both JV and ZG are up there in years. Of course, we'd have LMJ back.

None of our young arms has panned out so far. Of course, we have Frances Martes returning from Tommy John and JB.

I have concern about future pitching with this deal, but Luhnow has shown he can get it done.

For a win-now deal, I'd take this in a heartbeat.

I'd not send Whitley in a deal for Greinke.

That is a high price. The DBacks would fall over themselves rushing ti sign that deal.

also...the front office is out there looking for the next Charlie Morton or Wade Miley (that is going to hit free agency after the season).

they may have several targets in mind already

Looks like Stroman was initially not cool with heading to the Mets.

Honestly, the Blue Jays had an excellent opportunity to bolster their young core. (Vlad Jr, Biggio, Bichette, etc.) They really will be competitors in the next 3-5 years.... and they got crap in return for Stroman.

I can't imagine that's even close to the best offer they got. It's like they intentionally screwed themselves so that they didn't have to send him to the Yankees or Red Sox.

I'm sure some will say this is an example of somebody that wants to win but i look at this situation as somebody that's a little immature and hot headed...but lots of times this gets chalked up to Latin players just being "passionate"

Eh, at least the timing works out having just finished the series with the NL Cards.

I'm waiting on MLB to say that slide the other night by Munoz on Correa was illegal and that Munoz is getting a 2 game suspension.

Crickets.

Yes I'd take it. If they didn't offer the 20 MM then I'd say no but that allows us more room to resign guys

There was nothing Wong with that slide.

It was an illegal slide by Munoz, though.

the question is, who would be stupid enough to not do this?

Wheeler is a rental

So maybe a package like Kemp and Beer?

Hes a rental correct? So asking price shoudnt be much
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

Ray plus Strom could be really good. I'd be fine with that.

I'm okay with a rental since we have LMJ coming back next year .... however I'd love to get Grienke
