Rangers - Dickey
Mets - Upton
Arizona - Specs from both teams
Everyone gets what they want.
Even better. Hope the Dodgers take everyone they can off the market.Quote:

even with greinke. word is #dodgers may try for another big free-agent starter. anibal seems to top the rest of their list.
Dodgers will go nuts.
Hell they may call up the Mets and offer 100 million in exchange for Dickey.
If they succeed in getting a deal for Upton, I think that would take them out of the market for Hamilton. Would it be crazy to think that Alderson's secret plan in releasing Bay and owing him only $6 million this year, and then getting Wright to defer half of his $16 million for 2013, is to make a run at Hamilton???
Right now he is about $30 million below last year's payroll. If he were to backload a Hamilton contract, he could still have flexibility to sign or trade for additional players to fill holes.
I would take Federowicz+Joc Peterson from the Dodgers for Dickey.
Greinke signing with the Dodgers for 6 yrs, $147 million. YES!
Olt + Justin Grimm for Dickey
High OBP (.360+), 15 HRs from catcher + Gold Glove defense/arm isn't good enough? I bet your wife has a hell of a time trying to please you.
I'd prefer Olt too, but I think that's as good a Plan B as any.
You seriously just make stuff up. He's never even hit 15 HR's in the minors, how can you say he'd be a 15 HR catcher in the Majors? And he's only had 1 yr with a .360 OBP in the minors too...
seriously, stop making stuff up to try to prove something. There's a reason why neither guy u mentioned from the Dodgers are top 100 prospects. There's multiple deals we'd probably be able to make before settling for something like that.
Plug Olt into RF and I still see Toronto as a trade partner with us even if we deal Dickey to Texas. Arencibia can be had for cheap probably(Mazonni + Duda?) and we can platoon him with Thole. I also wonder what it would take include Gose in a deal so we can have a young-awesome outfield of Olt-Gose-Kirk.
Familia, Puello, Havens...maybe these guys can land us Gose.
