    you seem really low on Martin... He put up a 1.033 OPS in AAA last year... He is gonna be a good player for someone...

    Look how 99% of rookies do. I'm saying that it would've helped his value, not that he will or wont be good ever.

    I just don't understand why the Dbacks would trade for Pennington if they want a SS still.

    Indians Get: Trevor Bauer/Tyler Skaggs, Mitch Moreland/Mike Olt, John McDonald/Cliff Pennington

    Rays Get: Mike Olt/Mitch Moreland, Wil Myers

    Royals Get: Derek Holland
    The funniest part of this is how the Indians get Bauer AND Olt for just Asdrubal Cabrera. Where did this gross misconception of how good Asdrubal Cabrera is come from?

    Coming soon to a TKRO stadium near you

    I think the best (and only) way something ends up happening here would be if it's just a 3 team thing between AZ-CLE-TEX and is like, AZ getting Asdrubal and Olt, TEX getting Upton, CLE getting Holland and Chafin. That's not too bad IMO. And I realize I'm just making things up, but I think that's not a terrible deal for any of the 3, except maybe AZ, but it seems they're down on J-Up.

    Depends what you think of Upton. If you think he's a 4-5 win RF than yeah. If you think he's a 6-7 win one, then they lose.

    If you think of Upton as a 6-7 WAR player, then you should probably think of Cabrera being a 4-5 WAR guy and Olt around the same. I think any team would be lucky to have Upton though.

    I don't view him as that good, but the market for shortstops is inflated.

    You've all just been ninja'd. AA just acquired all of the players being talked about for a pair of Alomar's old cleats.

    Mariners could be 4th team. Guy speculated we want Holland, which doesn't make sense. Take a #3/4 starter while helping our rivals get a star?
    You have no idea how excited I am right now.
