There would be more to the trade than just those two, but it wouldn't surprise me if they did end up trading him before it's all said and done. I have a feeling he's going to be another Colby Rasmus, a guy who comes in being highly touted and then gets shipped out because of problems with people within the organization.

I don't know. I realize the Rangers have something of a logjam in the infield at the moment, but what if Profar doesn't become the world-beater he's projected to become? The Rangers are set to continue to enjoy the services of Elvis Andrus through 2018 until he can opt out of his current deal, who, in spite of coming off of an apparent "off" year with the bat, is still one of the better all-around players in the game at the moment considering what he brings as a proven MLB-caliber shortstop. Even with the dramatic offensive shortcomings of 2013, he was still roughly a 3-win player. He could easily bounce back to the 4-win-or-better cornerstone of Texas that he was in 2011 and 2012.

Shelby Miller has a tremendous amount of potential and put together a very nice rookie season but... I dunno. Obviously like insanitydefined notes, it would probably involve a lot more pieces but I'd have to think Texas would be getting a considerable haul for Andrus, even if they would be trading low based on his 2013 (which makes it altogether more questionable from their perspective).

Hmm seems like Angels are interested in Price, Trumbo/Kendrick package is being suggested.

I looked at Miller's STATS. Don't want him anymore. He'll melt in the Texas heat and have a 4ish ERA.

Kershaw pls

You don't honestly think that'll happen, do you? Tampa wants top prospects, not overpriced veterans. I know Trumbo is fairly cheap (Though he's come upon arbitration, so he'll get a raise), but Kendrick is making over $10 M next season, which is MUCH more than Tampa can afford.

No offense, Dub, but Friedman should and would laugh in LAA's collective face if that's their offer. About eight or ten teams in MLB could destroy that with one phone call. Heck, even the Giants could, if they simply packaged a considerable grouping of their low-minors pitching talent, not that they would; nor would they be one of those eight or ten teams.

Likeliest destinations for Price based on farm system/heavy duty prospect talent, probably Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Texas, Chicago Cubs, and then there are a bunch of other possibilities. The Dodgers are probably the wild card because, while their farm system isn't great, they possibly have enough to get it done, but the move would utterly gut their farm. Not that they care about things like money, prospects or anything save their diabolical plan for world domination, but, yeah, something like Seager/Lee/Pederson with someone else or whatever could probably get it done.

The writer suggested that trade, not the Angels.

No problem, Dub. A lot of writers are a touch harebrained.

Yankees are said to be "all in" on Japanese ace Masahiro Tanaka. The posting fee does not count against payroll, so the Yankees can skirt around the luxury tax they've been looking to avoid just as it becomes truly punitive. Dodgers, Red Sox and Cubs are all outspokenly "in on" Tanaka as well.

_____________________________

Carlos Beltran is set to reject the Cardinals' qualifying offer. Mark Polishuk at MLBTradeRumors:

Quote:
Carlos Beltran is looking for a three- or four-year contract and will thus turn down the Cardinals' one-year, $14.1MM qualifying offer, Yahoo Sports' Tim Brown reports. Rejecting the qualifying offer will likely mean the end of Beltran's tenure in St. Louis as the Cards aren't likely to meet Beltran's demands when they have younger (and cheaper) outfield options like star prospect Oscar Taveras.

Beltran said during the summer that he hoped to play three or four more seasons, so it makes sense that he would look for a contract that would cover the home stretch of his career and capitalize on his strong performance in both the regular season and postseason. Though Beltran turns 37 next April, there is enough demand for his services that he could find more than two years. The Yankees, Red Sox, and Orioles have already been linked to Beltran this offseason and Brown reports that six teams have "varying degrees of interest" in the veteran slugger. Brown figures the Mets, Phillies and Rangers are also possible suitors, plus any other teams who miss out on Jacoby Ellsbury or Shin-Soo Choo.
Beltran and an AL team seems like a good fit considering his age and at least moderate health concerns.

Scott Boras scoffs at humanity, this time vis--vis Stephen Drew... Polishuk at MLBTR again:

Quote:
•Scott Boras scoffed at projections that Stephen Drew would only find a three-year contract this winter, CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman writes. “A three-year deal, for a 30-year-old free agent, really? Are these writers aware of what Elvis Andrus signed for?”, Boras asked. The Andrus comparison isn’t as entirely outlandish as it first appears, since Andrus’ eight-year, $120MM extension with the Rangers is only guaranteed for four years and $62MM since Andrus has opt-out clauses. Still, even that price tag seems quite high - MLBTR’s Tim Dierkes predicted Drew for a four-year, $48MM deal this winter and that was with reservations about the fourth year and the draft pick compensation attached to Drew’s free agency.

Watched this AFL game late, late last night. So awesome.

Quote:
Scottsdale: SP Kyle Crick: 3.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K
Scottsdale: RP Jeurys Familia: 1.0 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER
Scottsdale: RP Derek Law: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 1 K
Glendale: SP Alex Meyer: 5.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 7 K
Crick struck out five of the ten batters he faced in those first three innings, allowed one hit. So awesome. And The Law is coming.



Also, Alex Meyer, Twins product, pitched quite excellently for Glendale, facing just one over the minimum through 5.2 IP with a hit and a walk.
