Good thing the Dodgers werent willing to give up Loney or Billingsley for 2 months of Lee. They should go after Carmona of the Indians or Marcum of the Jays.

Seriously, I would have flipped if the Dodgers did that

Thats what the rangers basically traded for Lee SMoak is no where near ike davis league, smoak has not even hit over 8 hrs in his minor league career, asking for ike davis is like asking the braves for heyward. Davis in his first minor league year (2009) hit 20hrs and 70 something rbis. Mejia,Thole,Fmart and another prospect would of been better than what the M’s recieved,

LOL. Justin Smoak is above and beyond better than Ike Davis. Ike Davis’s ceiling is no where near as high as Heyward’s or Smoak’s. Thanks for showing your naivety, sir.

Ike Davis=High Floor

Smoak=High Ceiling

Heyward=High Everything

I thought Tim Lincecum = High Everything. That’s what the cops said.

lol smoak is the same age as davis and like i pointed out before he hasnt hit more than 8 hrs in a season as per davis he hit 20 last yr in his full year, he already has 10hrs in the majors and is 2nd in rbis trailing heyward by like 6 rbis, sorry to burst your bubble smoak has not shown anything, im proving facts and you guys are just giving your opinion

My replies have links, they will take time to show up, but don’t worry, since you are proving nothing (citing only numbers and not scouting reports), i think i’ve got you covered. In essence, they will show that Smoak is still learning, whereas Davis is more polished and may not show much more production than he is already, though he does have 30 HR potential, but not nearly the potential to hit .300, which is one of the edges Smoak has over Ike.

Maybe if he reaches his ceiling but you can’t deny that Ike has done a much better job adjusting to Major league pitching. The one thing I don’t know about Smoak is his defense. Ike seems to have a really good glove for first.

Calm down Sparky, unlike Texas we don’t have another viable 1B that could match the output Davis can produce. Who would you recommend playing 1B if we traded Davis?

Exactly. Davis is their starting 1B. They’re not giving him up for 2 months of Lee. If they had a window for an extension, then it’s a different story.

They ask for Davis, why not go, “Here’s Jenry Mejia! He’s good too!” instead of just making the talks go mum.

5 years 1 month ago

Yeah like Seattle is stupid enough to take Mejia FRESH off a Minor League DL stinit.

baseball52

Unless I’m mistaken, I believe that was to stretch him out to start.

5 years 1 month ago

Kind Sir, you misread my post, Mejia just got off a Minor League DISABLED LIST stint with a Posterior Cuff Strain suffered while stratching out to be a starter in Double A.

I thought it might have been a rehab assignment to begin with. My mistake.

Yes, they did. Josh Thole anybody?

Im not trading Sampson unless I get a star I would guess his trade value will only rise

Do most teams “fill” the Royals will wait until closer to the trade deadline, or do they feel the Royals will wait?

verlander

Well, if Jason Beck says so . . .

“Most teams fill the Royals”. Yes they do. The Royals “suck”

Good luck signing Lee to a LT deal. After the Yanks got blind sided 1 time for lee, the Steinbrenner’s won’t let it happen again. Pure vanity if nothing else. Like a child without a new toy.

Cyyoung

Probably Yanks will go on a vengence, sign Lee, Crawford, and Werth. Oh wait…normal off-season, sorry.

5 years 1 month ago

what would it take to get Stephen Drew to the Giants? maybe Brandon Crawford or Nick Noonan and Roger Kieschnick and Clayton Tanner or something like that?

In case you read Mark’s summary without clicking through to my post, I should clarify. I first said I think the Giants might be better served going after a right-handed bat, but if they insist on a LH bat, I threw Drew’s name out there and asked if J. Sanchez was a fair swap. If not, who would be? I appreciate the shout-out and the link, but I don’t appreciate being misquoted.
