I'm not usually one for trade ideas, but since the Yankees are shopping  J. R. Murphy, a 22 year old catcher who I've liked for a while in exchange  for a bat I thought Soriano  would be a fit. 

 

Now the question's are do you guys think that the Yankees could get a better bat than Sori  since they are selling high on Murphy and do you think the  Cubs could do better than   J. R. Murphy for Sori+11 million?

 

The  bottom line is: do you guys think that both teams would do this deal?

Murphy is currently mashing at AAA and was almost featured on this week's  Fringe Five.

If Sori packaged together with someone else could bring back better prospects, I'm sure we all agree that would be the best option.  That being said, if the Yankees or any other team were willing to trade a guy like Murphy for Soriano straight up, I would love that.

From a quick look at his stats, I like J.R. Murphy a lot. He's consistently been young for his league and has always posted respectable avg/obp/slg/ and bb/k ratio. I don't know much about him and I haven't read more than one scouting report, but I mean...ya if its an option I see the cubs wanting to pull the trigger. I do not, however, see the Yankees doing this trade. 

 

Unless there are some serious flaws that I am unaware of, it seems like that would be a heck of a trade for the Cubs and just an okay trade for the Yankees. A 22 year old catcher in AAA with an .856 OPS is pretty valuable. 

 

I like Soriano. I think he is productive, a positive influence, and just a good all around player; but, for one reason or another it seems that the rest of the league does not think so.

I'd be happy with that trade.  A good young catcher for Soriano,  his AAA average look a little inflated right now but the walks and strike out percentage are strong.

I would feel good getting him.  Just curious if the Yanks would even go for that idea.

Now what got me encouraged is that some Yankee fans actually seem okay with a Sori for Murphy trade as long as we kicked in ALL of  the salary.

 

Do you think the FO would be okay with kicking in all of Sori's salary? More importantly would all the salary nudge the  Yanks front office into accepting the deal?

That's what I was thinking as well, but  strangely  groups of   Yanks fans seem to be fine with such a deal.

So a top 10 prospect is too much for Sori?

Stankees have a surplus at catcher with Romine and Sanchez.  I wouldn't be surprised if one of them is dealt for a right handed slugger especially if A-Roid gets suspended

Speaking of which, does this newest incident close the book on the chances of ARod getting into the HoF?

His book has been closed for a while now.

By the way if Sori is carted off to Texas this goes out the window.

 

(Since it is a 2 for 4 deal.)
