let's trade - who wants to do it/

Posted by mikelink45 , 07 August 2020 · 3,778 views

let's trade - who wants to do it/ I was reading MLB.com’s list - 1 possible Deadline upgrade for every team – and thinking about the Twins. Our trade was for a left handed reliever which I do think is a big item. However here are some intriguing trade options for Rooker, Kiriloff, Larnach since we seem quite set in the OF

Needs:
Blue Jays – OF
Indians – OF – wrong division – sorry
Tigers – a bat (wrong division, but they are the Tigers and they like ex-Twins)
Athletics – 2B (Lewis?)
Mariners – C
Rangers – 1B/3B – maybe Rooker
Nationals – 1B – Rooker?
Brewers – 3B – Blankenhorn?
Cardinals – impact bat
Cubs – rp – anyone still sorry we did not sign Kimbrel?
Pirates – C
Giants – C
Padres – impact bat


These teams would want pitching – not going to trade with them:
Orioles
Rays left handed rp
Yankees – sp
Red Sox – sp
Royals – sp
White Sox – sp
Angels – sp
Astros – sp
Reds - rp
Braves – sp
Marlins – rp
Mets – sp
Phillies – rp
Diamondbacks – sp
Dodgers – sp – sorry no returns
Rockies – rp


That is the MLB summary. Unless we think we have excess rp we are not in on the second list and I do not think we have a Catcher to give unless it is Telis.

I agree about the pitching, but I think it's a bit early to be trading Lewis.

My biggest concern is not Lewis, but the fact that it is so hard to come out on top against the Athletics.

That list shows other teams' needs. Did it also show what other teams had to offer?

No it didn't.The biggest take away I had was that most wanted a pitcher.If we were going to offer Thorpe or Smeltzer we would get some interest.

I gotta pass on trading Rooker, Kiriloff, or Larnach for a LH Reliever. Those are way too promising of prospects to be trading for a reliever who won't be a closer, even then it gets dicey unless they're really good, maybe I'm too scarred from the Capps trade though
