    Trade Deadline Gamethread 2022

    I guess that depends on how much they wanted Correa. Re the "megas" I'm not talking about success. Just payroll flexibility, particularly mid season. Luxury tax is a non-consideration for them mid-season more times than not. Not saying they don't work to get close to it off season. But I never...

    Trade Deadline Gamethread 2022

    We are a big market team. But I think that LA and NYY are now officially in another strata by themselves. "mega market" teams I guess. They are able to keep every player they want these days and there is seemingly no limit to who they can acquire. There is no year they have to shut it down...

    NY trade deadline 2022

    Every year I watch as the Yankees manage to get a star at the deadline without having to give up their top prospect. If I am any team trading to NY I ask for Volpe and don't budge. Teams will budge.

    Red Sox Trade Deadline 2022

    If Smith is the "MLB ready" return, I darn well want a top level prospect too. Vientos? Lee? I dont expect one of their truly elite guys but someone in the 5-8 range at the very least Any chance if we included Vazquez we could get Alvarez? I'd do that in a heartbeat. NM- I didn't realize...

    Would you trade Jaylen+ for Durant?

    Depends on the + for me. You are trading a star for a superstar, but the superstar is significantly older and likely to begin declining much sooner. That, IMO, does not equate to JB, more players, and like 3 1sts. If the package is much smaller…maybe.
