2018 MLB Trade Rumors and Deadline Thread

Recommended Posts

So Cubs are " in on" Matt Harvey according to Passan. He couldn't handle New York, how the hell can he handle Chicago?  Brewers also in the mix for Harvey as well according to Passan.

 

Seems to me he'd do much better in Milwaukee than a larger environment of Chicago....

 

Not sure why Cubs would want him?  He's not better than Montgomery.....

I have a feeling Harper gets dealt or it could be IBS. Something tells me the Yankees will go hard to get him after losing out on Machado. 

 

Nats already withdrew Harper today ... again.  They like to be the endless flirt with him.  Yes we will listen to offers.  Oh yes we could sell.  No we won't.  Oh wait, we will.  Nope, changed our minds again.  Not available.  But maybe if you blow us away with an offer.  Well no, humpf, we aren't that cheap.  Well Harper is grounded and can't come out and play anymore with you guys.

If the Rays end up getting more good pitching prospects...... :o

 

Seriously if all their young arms get right next year, they'll have two rotations worth of guys on the cusp of the majors. Rays will be Rays.

Well if they keep with the "opener" strategy, they only need 2 or 3 guys.

I feel like they did this partly because they see many of those guys as tradeable or disposable after this year. Teams tend to wear out pitchers they think they won't keep. Done out of neccessity, yes, but I also choose to see the cynical side of it.

Orioles are reportedly close to another deal. Wonder if it's Givens.

 

EDIT: Think it's more likely a position player like Schoop though

Really tho what is a realistic trade for Harper? Like the Yankees, what package do they put together to actually get him

shouldn't take much to get a .270 hitter. lol

I think Brewers will pony up for Archer here.  They need him the most. 

I wonder what the plan B's are for the teams who don't get him.

Saw a report this morning saying the market for Dozier was heating up. Guessing teams are choosing between Schoop and Dozier if they need a 2B.
