2008 Trades & FA Signings

So far the Angels have been super busy, they traded Orlando Cabrera for John Garland of the Whitesox which many believe is to have a surplus of pitching in order to land Miguel Cabrera of the Marlins.

AND, they just landed Torii Hunter for 5yr/$80m

Mets have been quiet so far. They got rid of Paul LoDuca and Tom Glavine through free agency, Glavine signs with the Braves, LoDuca hasn't signed with anybody yet

Mets also made a no risk trade, we trade away steroid boy Guillermo Mota (RP) for Brewers catcher Johnny Estrada. The move is no risk because Mota was horrible with a big contract so we get rid of that and Estrada can be released without a penalty because of some clause in his contract.

Mets make a move today:
Mets send young outfielder Lastings Milledge to the Washington Nationals for catcher Brian Schnieder and outfielder Ryan Church.

Not sure what to think of thise trade, Milledge still had some value despite some issues in the dugout and I'd rather see the Mets strengthen the bullpen. Not sure what to think, Church is not really an upgrade over Shawn Green and Schnieder is a better defensive catcher but will be a liability at the plate

I really hope we get Miguel Cabrera from the Marlins but not at Matt kemp's expense.

If that doesn't happen, I'd be pleased with Andruw Jones or Miguel Tejada.

Hurrah for Paquador!

The Marlins are asking for way too much though, they want Kemp, Billingsley/Broxton, Kershaw (#1 pitching prospect in the nation) AND Loney. That is absolutely ridiculous. Miguel is good and we do need a third baseman but the Marlins should really be reasonable because what those players they are asking for are destined for glory.

I'd give them Kemp + Kershaw but no way in hell give them Broxton and his 100mph + fastball and future HOF Loney.

Yankees yank Santana offer

The Yankees' pursuit of Johan Santana is over, according to Hank Steinbrenner, the team's senior vice president, after the Yankees and the Minnesota Twins failed to agree on a deal Tuesday. Steinbrenner, who had imposed a deadline of midnight Monday for a deal to be completed, sounded almost relieved that the Yankees would be keeping starter Phil Hughes and center fielder Melky Cabrera, the key players in their proposal.


Schilling wants Santana in Boston

Even Curt Schilling wants to know. The pitcher weighed in on the Johan Santana trade talks on his blog, 38pitches.com, with a vote of support for obtaining Santana via trade, even if it would come at the cost of some of the best prospects in the Red Sox system. That's in agreement with what a lot of baseball people are saying at the winter meetings: Prospects are nice, but a player of Santana's caliber doesn't come around all that often. "A rotation featuring [Josh ] Beckett, Santana as the top two is pretty much as good as it can get," Schilling wrote. "The thought of pitching behind these guys has to fire ya up."


Mets still interested in Hernandez

Omar Minaya, the Mets' general manager, said Tuesday that he planned to speak with the representative of Livan Hernandez, a free-agent pitcher who played last season for Arizona. Asked whether he had spoken with Greg Genske, the agent for Hernandez, Minaya replied: "No, not yet. But I intend to."


Cubs lead chase for Fukudome

Whether the White Sox are serious about Japanese free agent Kosuke Fukudome, the Cubs remain the team to beat for the services of Japan's top hitter. While being careful to respect the cultural nuances of the trans-Pacific pursuit of the outfielder, the Cubs have made it clear Fukudome is their top offseason target. And indications from those close to the Japanese side of the process suggest the Cubs are at the front of a large pack of suitors.

big trade by the Tigers, they gave up some good prospects but I'd still make that trade in a heart beat. Although Willis didn't have a good season he is still young and a lefty who throws hard, what every team looks for really

Awesome deal by the Tigers, they just popped in out of nowhere to snap the deal when it seemed destined Cabrera will head to the Angels or Dodgers.

How good are Maybin and Miller? Im curious because from my understanding the Marlins wanted Kemp, Broxton AND Kershaw for Cabrera which is downright absurd since all 3 of those players are destined for big things. So its pretty interesting to see the Marlins saying yes when the Tigers put in those two.

Just as i typed my last post, the Dodgers sign Andruw Jones to a 2yr/$36m contract which in all likelihood means Kemp will be traded.

I'm very pleased with this sigining. All we need now is one more starting pitcher (Loaiza just can't cut it as a starter anymore) and we're set.

Hurrah for Paquador!

Would you trade Kemp, Laroche and Broxton for Santana?

I'd rather give up Andre Ethier instead of Kemp but I'd do it. Any trade for a star pitcher that does not involve both Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw.

Now, if the Twins would only take Juan Pierre off our hands....

1- SS Furcal
2- C Martin
3- RF Kemp
4- CF Jones
5- 2B Kent
6- 1B Loney
7- 3B Garciaparra
8- LF Ethier
9- P Santana

Our rotation would then be:

Ace- Santana
2- Penny
3- Lowe
4- Schmidt
5- Billingsley

7th- Loaiza/ Kuo
8th- Proctor
Closer- Saito

Hurrah for Paquador!

No way the Twins take Pierre and his $10m per year contract away from us, they're not dumb. Supposedly the Twins asked for Kemp, Laroche, Kershaw AND Billingsley/Broxton and wouldn't settle for anything less. The Marlins asked for the same players in return for Cabrera but thankfully Colletti told them to bug off with that shit.

Santana would bolster any starting rotation but i feel Kemp can be a star and can be even better than Loney and Martin (who are deemed untouchable by Colletti) but also with our current starting rotation, i dont know if we can compete especially in the pitcher dominated NL West. Such a dilemma.

Meltdown Bradley signs with the Rangers, lets see how long he lasts there.

Also there are very strong rumors that Matsui will be traded to the Giants for Linecum, which would be a bizarre trade since Linecum barely got into the majors last season and Matsui is an established player already.
