In Topic: 1 Crazy 4 way trade, 2 other trades and 2 signings

Royals deal seems about right, but probably expanded a bit.


I would have to think the Rockies would require more. Not that those guys are terrible by any means.


Super trade seems unlikely. While Bradley and Polanco are both good prospects, I'd rather keep our 4 guys there. Oliver, while having good stuff, literally walks a guy an inning. But teams almost never swap prospects.

I could see Garza, Soriano, Marmol all being dealt. I could also see the FO try to swing a couple guys like Lake, Vitters, McNutt and Szczur for for something.

We won't have to give up Baez for just a couple years of David Price. I believe we'll need to send Vogelbach that way, though.

Really? David Price is a monster. Shields himself, a much lesser pitcher, fetched arguably the best prospect in baseball. I actually don't think Baez and Vogel are enough. I think either Maples or Underwood need to pop this season, as well as baez cemmenting himself as a top 10 baseball prospects, as well as Vogel continuing to mash the ball before TB considers it.

I think a Price for Baez, Vogelbach and Maples could work if all those things come to fruition.

Vogelbach hasn't even played Low A ball, yet. I think a lot of fans are putting way too much stock into his trade value right now.

eh.. Maybe. Highly touted comming out of HS. Bat has shown legit so far. Sickels has him at a solid B borderline B+. A lot fo scouts think his bat is for real. Like I said, a lot will have to go right to get Price, and Baez and Vogelbach making strides foward is part of that. But if Vogelbach continues to tear the cover off the ball you better believe he will be highly sout after.

Hey, I am new to this side of bleacher nation, so bear with me. I am curious about how much is enough in terms of Olt. I have heard Marmol and a prospect, I have heard Garza for Olt and a prospect, I think I have even heard Sori for Olt straightup. What should we give up for Olt, if we should even pursue him at all?

I think they would only do Garza for Olt + (hopefully Leoyns Martin) if he shows he can throw in ST.

I would most certainly go after Olt. Olt has a nice ceiling, and with Olt I think you can start to build a package around Baez and Vogelbach for Price next season; if everything goes right that is.
