5 MLB Blockbuster Trade Ideas After Winter Meetings

Looking for some pre-Winter Meetings trade suggestions? Check out 10 MLB Trade Predictions (Stanton, Yelich, Fulmer, McCutchen and more) 1. Danny Duffy to the Chicago Cubs The Cubs off-season is off the a hot start, and the theme is clear; WE WANT ARMS. The Cubs will likely be watching Jake Arrieta and Wade Davis head out, so they have gone out and signed Tyler Chatwood and Brandon Morrow to replace them. I have a more drastic idea however, a trade that may remind you off last off-season. The Cubs should use their glut of talented infielders to strike a deal with Kansas...

Four Manny Machado Trade Destinations That Make Sense

Orioles Reportedly Asking For Offers On Manny Machado https://t.co/5F4RbRDqMZ pic.twitter.com/5QNpNXNWSL — MLB Trade Rumors (@mlbtraderumors) December 12, 2017 It appears after watching the Yankees reinforce their roster with the acquisition of Giancarlo Stanton that the Baltimore Orioles are ready to talk Manny Machado trades. In that spirit, I decided to find the 4 destinations that made most sense for Machado. It is extremely important to note: Machado is a FA next season. While he is most certainly one of the leagues premier talents (projections have him coming in around 5-6 WAR next year), he is going to make a...

If the Marlins Don’t Take the Giants Offer for Giancarlo Stanton Derek Jeter Deserves to be Removed From Ownership

Derek Jeter is off to a rough start as the Marlins Owner. There’s a wealth of stories I could link but you can just google his name, the early returns are not promising on Jeets. He seems like a dick and doesn’t seem capable of running a team. However, if he makes smart baseball decisions during this rebuild all will likely be forgotten, as wins and losses run our culture. So, lucky for him, teams are fucking lining up to take 10 years and $270 million of Giancarlo Stanton of his hands. I say “Take” for a reason, that...

BREAKING: LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball heading to… Lithuania?

Uh oh, BIG BALLER DID IT AGAIN   http://www.eurohoops.net/en/eurocup/567742/liangelo-lamelo-ball-reportedly-offered-lietkabelis/amp/ Some people are saying its a tough time to be a Big Baller, Lonzo sucks, LiAngelo is a criminal, LaMelo is HS Dropout, blah blah blah. Well folks, Mike Trout was bad in his MLB debut, LeBron James was bought an illegal car, and Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard, so were fine. Supreme leader Lavar is busy taking down the damn President of the United States, but still has time to bring Big Balling to Eastern Europe. Thats right, rumors have it California’s most popular teen and the thief himself are heading to...

Braves ruling expected today. Kevin Maitan will be freed ($4.2M signing, infielder). Others may be too. — Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) November 21, 2017 The big MLB news of the day is the Braves surrendering the rights to 6 big IFA signings from 2016, the headliner being SS/3B Kevin Maitan. Maitan is a 17 year old from Venezuela who was called “the next Miguel Cabrera” and handed a fat $4.25 Million Dollar Bonus in 2016. Now, he’s a free agent. The big question for the White Sox is wether the supremely talented Maitan, who was recently rated the Braves #9...

While this may not be as impactful long term as the Jimenez or Giolito or Rutherford trades, I am PUMPED about this acquisition by Rick Hahn. First, here’s some tweets about Veiria for some background...

Kyle Kuzma is Better Than Josh Jackson

Last night the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Phoenix Suns 100-93 in Phoenix, with a strong performance from Rookie Kyle Kuzma over 34 minutes factoring in heavily. Kuzma scored 11 and grabbed 6 boards while adding 2 dimes, and has been a major factor ever since moving into the starting lineup for the injured Larry Nance Jr. Kuzma’s season averages are now up to 14.9 and 6.8 boards, which is mighty impressive for a dude picked 27th overall just a few months ago. The Other Rookie wing in this game? That would be Phoenix’s Josh Jackson, who played 18...
