    I'm most interested in seeing MAG this September. The 2015 bullpen could be pretty exciting with or without Papelbon. Giles, Diekman, MAG, and Bastardo is a potent sounding group.

    That seems like a bit much to ask, Hernandez type assets usually net two org soldiers, so they're already a little ahead with Valentin.

    The Phillies got Jesmuel Valentin as part of the Roberto Hernandez trade. There's still one PTBNL yet to be named. Surprisingly, Valentin is an actual prospect with leadoff hitter upside. That said,...

    He's probably untouchable. He'll be a big part of this team's future. Now where's MTM?

    In other news, expect to see the Phillies shopping Brown in a challenge trade. Dayan Viciedo and Brad Miller are two targets that come to mind.

    He's a bargain, but not substantially so. The Phillies should probably eat about $20 million on the deal or else they shouldn't expect any can't miss talent in return. The contract as it exists is...

    Most scouts don't see Bradley as anything more than a 5th OFer and Bogaerts value is at a low point too. Neither player is where I would start a package for Hamels. The Red Sox do seem to match well...

    The hang up I've heard is he won't accept a trade if he isn't going to be the new team's closer. The Tigers would need more blow ups from Nathan before they went down that road.

    Unless the...

    It's fine. That's all they could have ever gotten for him. I do wish they had someone a little more interesting than David Buchanan and Sean O'Sullivan.

    Well you still have to give some consideration to his past splits which were decidedly better. I think a reasonable ROS projection would be something like .245/.335/.430.

    Yea Judge seems like a perfectly reasonable ask. He may be their #5 prospect, but he doesn't really profile to be particularly good. It's not like they were asking for the Cubs #5 spec.

    I'm not sure the drafting is the problem. They have the necessary athletes in the system, they just can't develop them. Some of that could be happenstance, but the pattern is long enough to think it...

    I'm not saying don't trade him if Oakland offers a decent piece and Rollins says yes. But the fans shouldn't be booing him just because he mostly likes it in Philly and is paid a close to market...

    I know it's disappointing that no trades were made, but keep in mind that the only guy off the table now is Bastardo (and Lee). Everyone else we've talked about trading will probably clear waivers....

    Yea but a contract should be evaluated in toto. Almost all mega contracts are a bad deal by the end because so much value is front loaded. If an average team is paying $6 mil a win in the offseason...

    I don't see why he should. He's a good player on a reasonable contract. Would you rather watch Brignac start?

    Yea I only saw it third hand, but Salisbury rarely says anything I haven't heard as least 2 days ago, so I don't often expect much from him.
