Boston sends:

C Burt - MLB

MR  Storen - MLB

SP Bubic - AA

OF Collins - A-

 

Kansas City sends:

C Realmuto - MLB

1B McNeill - MLB

 

 

We do this for two reasons:  first to upgrade our defense at catcher.   Realmuto and Burt, at least ratings wise, are identical except for a slight edge in D for Realmuto and we are hoping that helps or pitching.  Second, we get some very much needed power in McNeill.  As a team we rank 12th with only 75 homeruns this season.  We see no reason McNeill can't put up some homers in Boston the second half of the season.

 

Storen hasn't had the season we expected from him for us so we are cutting ties now.  Bubic was the toughest to move, a lefty we just drafted should help KC out in a couple years once he has filled out.  Collins will be an solid hitter and he's only 19.

 

 

Thanks and good luck the rest of the way Chappy

KC confirms!

 

I felt like we were able to get a couple of nice prospects for a minor downgrade at catcher and a struggling but talented pitcher.  We have to take on some salary but I feel like the prospects make it worth it.

 

Tough to lose McNeill but he wasn't producing in this environment.  Curious to see what happens with Storen; my scouts seem to like him a lot but he's been bad in Boston.

 

Thanks to Boston and good luck!

 

Side note: So far through my trades I've gone from 26th to 19th in system rankings, and the team has played a little better as well.  Still not sure why this group did not gel from the get go, feel like I started with a pretty talented group.
