  1. The following trade has been agreed upon:

    Cardinals receive SS Carter Young (A+)

    White Sox receive C John Gilliam, RF Constantino Cisneiros (R Jupiter) & CF Luis Manuel Salazar (R Jupiter)

    We make this move as we have plenty of catcher depth and Gilliam has been stinking up the joint, plus my scout really likes Carter Young. The OFs we move might end up being something but it's a long shot so we were fine with including them.


  2. The following deal has been agreed upon:

    Cardinals receive 3B A.J. Vukovich (A Greenville) and SP Hunter Helms (A+)

    Red Sox receive RP Zach Potter (STL retains 40%)

    While Potter's ratings suggest we are selling quite low on him, his play has not been great so far in this young season or last season either. I very nearly didn't bring him back this offseason so to get two young prospects my scout really likes for a guy who isn't performing for me, I consider a success. We retain some contract to make the deal happen.

    Thanks for the easy deal Brett. Hope he sorts his shit out in Boston and you take down Mitchell


  3. The Cardinals agree

     

    Our main goal was to get out of the Puig albatross contract. I really liked Rix but I’m pretty spoiled for choice when it comes to OF prospects. My scout wasn’t too high on Jarvis despite his top 100 standing either.

     

    Thanks Hodges. It’s only fitting that my first trade on a new team is with you


  4. We confirm.

    I couldn’t afford Panda at his full cost but 50% retention sweetens the deal. Even if he’s not what he was, he’s a massive upgrade (figuratively and literally) over what we currently have. Klumpp lasted one start in his return to Cleveland but will be missed.

     

    EDIT: We still confirm now that Jabs has put the players actual name 

    You’re the best Jabs


  5. The following deal has been agreed upon:

    CLE sends RP Joan Guerrero (AAA), RP Peter Solomon (AA), RF Brayden Mack (A+), C Dillon Weeks (A+) & 1B Will Robertson (A+)

    PIT sends 3B Adam Hall (AAA), OF Kelsey Henderson (AAA), SP Salvador Montes (AAA), RP Kevin Dri (AAA) & SP Robin Addison (AAA/DL)

    A simple little prospect swap that Greg did literally all the heavy lifting for. My scout is a big fan of Hall and likes Dri and Addison enough, and Mack was the only prospect I really wanted to keep of this lot, but Greg drives a hard bargain. Plus Guerrero and his near-7 ERA can go suck an egg.

    Thanks again Greg for the easy deal. 


  6. The following deal has been agreed upon

    CLE sends SP Antonio Castillo and 3B Javier Sosa (both INTL Complex. Will promote to R)

    PIT sends SP Anthony Klumpp and SP Bill Deely (both AAA)

    Greg came to me with this offer and I feel like either or both could contribute to my bullpen right now. If nothing else they provide me some depth if I get ravaged with injuries and both the guys I move are a long way away.

    Thanks Greg for the super easy deal


  7. The indian guardian spiders accept.

    Our team is struggling but despite that, we’re only a couple games back from that geriatric fuck. So we make a move. Maybe it’s not the right move, our bullpen has been much much worse than our rotation. But we needed to do something and I think the price is right. We will miss Acosta as my scout really likes him but he’s a few years away so he was expendable.

     

    Thanks Hodges. Always a pleasure


  8. Indians accept. We’re just trying shit here. I believe we are dead last in stolen bases and base running so using Hamilton as a pinch runner and backup IF might help things a little. It’s very low risk thanks to retention and my scout not being a fan of LaRoche Jr.

     

    Thanks Hodges. Always a pleasure


  9. Indians accept although I nearly declined because Eddie thought I was Australian, that bastard.

    Our minor leagues could use some depth and these are a couple of guys my scout likes the look of. In the grand scheme of things, $700k is nothing if one of these dudes works out.

    Thanks Ryan Buchholz. You're a champ


  10. The Indians accept.

    Middle IF is the shallowest position in our entire organisation and because some bastard who I won’t name but his name rhymes with Babs bid me up on a certain FA, I had to try the trade market. 
     

    Eierman is someone my scout likes quite a bit but I’m not sure if he is quite ready so Kozma is a solid insurance piece.

    Always a pleasure Heinz


  11. The following deal has been agreed upon

    CLE sends 1B Keon Barnum, RP Ken Gary & 2B Jonathan India (AA)

    OAK sends RP Hudson Boyd, CF Aaron Phillips & 2B Jazz Chisholm (AAA)

    This was a hard trade for me to do and might seem to be a bit of a backwards move considering we're trying to win now. That is how highly my scout thinks of Chisholm, and he plays a position harder to fill with potential stars. I like India a lot and have rebuffed offers for him in the past but I think Chisholm is better than him in pretty much every way and he is closer to the bigs. Barnum just had a great season for us but I feel 1B is easy to replace (hopefully anyway). Phillips can be a great 4th OF for us or he is young enough to develop a little more in AAA if need be. 

    Thanks Scott. Best of luck in your hellhole division


  12. Indians agree

    We need bullpen help and Bass, despite a high BABIP, has still put up respectable numbers this season. 

    We move out Alex Collins, who I still think could be the best player in this trade if he figures things out but I can't afford for him to keep costing me games. M.D. is decent but as Brenton described, very much a flyer. 

    Thanks Brenton. Always a pleasure. (I feel like we must hold the record for most completed trades between two teams by now)


  13. The following deal has been agreed upon:

    CLE sends SS Micah Mason (R)

    CIN sends RP Yosuke Ichikawa

    Our bullpen ranks 14th or 15th in the AL and that's just not gonna cut it. While we think Ichikawa's numbers are due to rise a little, we still view him as an upgrade and a solid vet for our young, inexperienced bullpen. Mason is a rookie we like quite a bit and has serious defensive potential, but he is far away.

    Thanks Scott and all the best on the rebuild!


  14. Indians accept

    I know it's early in the season but we're concerned with how the middle of the rotation has performed so far this season so we decided to make a move now to upgrade considering there are few pieces available. Pill is a definite upgrade for sure.

    It's true, this wasn't even a thought yesterday and now it's done. Proud of you Brentoni. Hope these prospects work out for you
