    The Hot Stove League

    Seemed like an appropriate time to start up a thread to discuss all the big names changing teams this winter. Only a couple months until pitchers/catchers start reporting.

    I know I will miss some of the deals....

    Paxton - Mariners to the Yankees

    Corbin - Diamondbacks to the Nationals

    Segura - Mariners to the Phillies (gave up Santana, thank you!, and JP Crawford)

    Cano/Diaz - Mariners to the Mets

    Goldschmidt - Diamondbacks to the Cardinals

    Give us your take on what YOUR team is doing/not doing..... Harper and Machado still out there for the taking.....

    Diamondbacks are going to be a hot mess next season. Not thrilled with the return for Goldy but also don't think we could've gotten one of the top tier prospects from the Cardinals.

    Whether or not the Giants move MadBum prior to spring training is the big discussion around here. They could get a huge haul of cheap prospects from a contending team, and with the new GM (ex Dodger GM) now on board, he will no doubt turn over many rocks. Final year of his (cheap) contract, he will no doubt command a large sum in 2020 in his initial free agent attempt.

    If he pitches like he did down the stretch, it will be a nice resigning by the Red Sox.

    Nats GM has indicated that they have maxed out the deal they are offering to Harper - sounds like he will not be in Washington next year.

    The Mets' new GM made quite a splash. We're holding our breaths to see whether Cano plays at the or close to his prior levels. Adding Diaz was a plus. Of course the jury will stay out until it is seen how the prospects we traded pan out. But as my buddy says: "Prospects are suspects."
    Now talk is they are looking at Reamulto. Not sure they have enough prospect to get him, but they're saying either Conforto or Nimmo might be in the mix. While I like both of those guys, the chance to get a catcher of Reamulto's caliber warrants making the deal, if they can. Here's hoping!

    On small trades I use PWE but'll use a bubble mailer if you ask.
    Slow trader. Please be patient: I love trading, but I don't have enuf time for it, so it takes me a while.

    Check my site: http://www.freewebs.com/frankpell/ for wants and trade items.
    "CMB"'s will be ignored. Sorry.

    The statement of prospects are just prospects is a wise one. Hypothetically, if oh so many years ago, the Yankees had decided to include Brien Taylor in a deal, what could they have received back? The Phillies just gave up on their "can't miss' SS prospect JP Crawford. Bowman products are littered with guys whose cards were hundreds of dollars one day...pennies the next.

    The Nats getting Corbin indicates to me that they are serious about trying to stay atop the NL East for another couple years at least. The teams may not be great, but the division should be competitive.
