    Throw in some prospects then? I don't know. I was just taking a shot at speculation. You could probably switch Shields and Holland in their prospective final destination, but then I think the Royals would have to give up more and I don't think they're willing to trade Gordon/Butler/Moustakas. Maybe Hosmer though.

    These are very conflicting. If I'm the Rangers, I'd do the deal and be thankful it didn't cost us Leonys Martin.

    Again, look at the home/road splits.

    He's still not good enough to warrant Myers.

    Leonys Martin??? He's a platoon CFer.

    Who needs Josh Hamilton when you can have this for $11m?

    Be that the case, as I said earlier, you could switch where Holland and Shields end up. However, that would likely mean the Royals would have to give up Myers and Hosmer. I wouldn't do the trade if I'm the Royals, but I think Moore would.

    What are you talking about? Martin has been one of the Ranger's top prospects the last couple years and, if you guys get Upton, will likely be your starting center fielder next year.

    Martin hasn't really showed much at the ML level. I wouldn't be too concerned if he was part of a deal for Upton although I would like to keep him.

    You realize he has only had 60 major league plate appearances, right.

    No ****. I just don't think he's gonna live up to what Texas paid for him.

    I have the feeling Martin's bat is going to be bad in the MLB. I'm not alone either, and he probably means more to the Rangers than other teams at this point. If he came up and set the world on fire in his first 60 PAs it would probably be a different story.

    Look at how Mike Trout performed in his first 135 PAs.

    Martin was never as highly touted as Trout was. Without checking, I think Martin barely cracked the top 100 prospect list while of course Trout was either 1 or 2 depending on who you ask.

    Rangers Get: Justin Upton

    D'Backs Get: Asdrubal Cabrera and James Shields

    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 Royals won't give up Myers for Niese or Dickey both much better then Holland.
