Pleasure to see our fearless leader on fire with so many topics of discussion already on this fine morning Tim
As for the biggest name? I still think JJ is going to get moved and headed to Texas for a large haul.
I honestly see Cliff Lee getting moved to the Dodgers or Diamondbacks. I certainly see Josh Johnson moving as well.
Lee could get moved as well my friend, no doubt about it. I still think Philly will have to pay a large chunk of his 2013-15 salary to do so. 75m, plus just the 12.5m buyout on 2015 is too much for any pitcher who will be 34YO next season and not even giving anything for them in exchange.
It makes it more intriguing, though, as we could see a bad salary or two thrown into the trade to facilitate it. It opens up a whole new variety of options besides simply dealing prospects for a major leaguer.
Not much going on, why’d I stay up all night for nothing…
Probably shouldn’t have expected stuff to happen in the 3-6am range, that’s more of a winter meetings thing. I don’t know how many actual deals will happen, but trust me things will be active today!
Over 300 votes already?! I love this site. It’s such an awesome little community. Bring on the trades!
juan guzman’s jeri curl
Heyman says Guzman not willing to include his jeri curl in any deal.
This is a fun poll. I voted for Pence. Several teams need OF help and the Phillies have to unload somebody… right?
I hope you’re not counting on that. You may be disappointed.
Counting on what? It’s a prediction.
It might’ve been wise to go with a more realistic prediction is all I’m saying, but whatever, more power to you.
Felix for Upton
I guarantee only 4 names or less on that list are traded: I’m thinking Victorino, Blanton, Dempster and a surprise name.
One down, three to go
I predict hunter pence will get traded today, its just a feeling.
Hunter Pence to Toronto
Where is Giancarlo Stanton on this list ? fixed
well said … my bad
Carl Crawford to Dodgers for Lindblom and Dee Gordon.
If Joe Blanton is the biggest name traded…
If the Phillies trade Cliff Lee, I’m going to cry.
No Travis Snider?
Upton is not that good.
