Official Mark Trumbo Trade Chatter (DEAL DONE)

1,003 posts in this topic

Trade Howie in another deal for a DH and let Lindsey/Green platoon there. Howie is overrated and costs some money over the next two years.

Kendrick/prospect to Royals for Butler/Crow

A trade built around that might appeal to Royals as it would save them a few mil and solve their 2B problem. They would have added flexibility with rotating DH.

Essentially replace Trumbo and Kendrick with Butler and Green while upgrading SP and RP.

Doesn't anyone else wonder about Santiago's 4.5 BBs per 9 innings in 2013?

Does he have a great arm?   Yes    Did he have a solid ERA in 2013?   Yes

But because of the control, he wouldn't be a true #3 starter yet.   The potential is most certainly there. 

 

I still don't want to trade Borenstein.   I didn't want to part with Grichuk, but at least Borenstein stayed.   Compact lefty swings with good power AND solid plate discipline DON'T grow on trees.

They can always move Hamilton to DH by some point in 2015, when Borenstein is ready.    

 

Borenstein seems like another Kole Calhoun. Which with Calhoun and Hamilton, will balance the right handed heavy lineup of Freese, Green/Kendrick/Pujols, Trout, etc. Zach could be in Anaheim in September if he kills AA the way he killed A-ball, as he is 22-23.

I think in a perfect world Skaggs starts in Salt Lake and is your first guy up WHEN someone gets hurt, so I would definitely like to add another starter.

 

Meh he'd be hurt in SLC.  I'd give him every opportunity in Spring.
