I bet Seattle would like that to be the case...

 

If the return was Walker, I believe Atlanta and its fans would like that as well.

Yankees / Diamondbacks / Tigers Three Team Trade!

 

Yankees get Didi Gregorius from AZ

Tigers get SP Greene from NYY

Diamondbacks get Robbie Ray and minor league Inf from DET.

 

Anyone else think that AZ could have gotten more from someone else?

To me, at first blush, it looks like the Yankees got the short end of the deal.

Detroit did well. Clearly the Yankees want defense and value it more than a number 5 pitcher. Given their ability to buy pitching, it probably makes sense for them. The Tigers don't give up much short or medium term, and get a number 5 starter. ....you can't go back in time and fix the Foster trade, so I like it for them. AZ is playing for the future, I guess.

It's IL now, btw, not DL.....

If Greene is a #5 then Gibson is a #6.

Is 2016 2017 2018 the year that a good pitching prospect is truly blocked by 5 good pitchers in the starting rotation?

Jason Hammel returns to the Cubs after being traded to the A's at the deadline.

 

A's have also just traded Left-handed Bat Brandon Moss to Cleveland for... somebody

And Dee Gordon to the Marlins for Andrew Heaney (with other pieces on both sides)

To follow up:

 

clarkspencer ‏@clarkspencer· 8m8 minutes ago 
So just to restate: #Marlins getting Dee Gordon and Dan Haren from #dodgers for Heaney, Kike Hernandez, Austin Barnes and Chris Hatcher

 

but Haren may retire:

 

Jon Morosi ‏@jonmorosi· 9m9 minutes ago 
Calif. native Dan Haren to @markasaxon in Nov.: "At this point in my career, I have no interest in playing in a city away from my family."

 

 

Buster Olney ‏@Buster_ESPN· 2m2 minutes ago 
Haren has friends in the game who say he is serious about retiring if he's traded away from southern California. Now a decision to come.

Man the Dodgers are wheelin' and dealin' today.  They acquire 2B Howie Kendrick from the Angels for SP Heaney who they got in the deal from the Marlins earlier.

 

Also close to deal with SP Brandon McCarthy on a 4 year, $48 million dollar deal.  Who thought he would get that much?

With his health history, the years are ridiculous.

 

I wouldn't do Heaney for Kendrick straight up, let alone add in Rutledge, but I guess they were just excited to solve their catcher issues with Grandal and get Kemp off the team.

SP Alfredo Simon to the Tigers.  Reds get Tigers 1st round pick in 2013 SP Jonathon Crawford and 22 year old SS Eugenio Suarez.

The Cardinals have picked up their new DH, Mark Reynolds! Oh, wait.

 

I guess they'll use him as a bench bat and 1B...

With a 3rd year option.If we weren't in such a Santana frenzy we'd probably be talking about how crazy it is for a team to sign a full time DH with a .612 OPS to a 2 year $17 million deal.He's lucky he didn't get a Kubelesque minor league offer.

So, The Orioles were unable/unwiling to retain Markakis, Nelson Cruz, and Delmon - and they missed out on Melky Cabrera and Torii Hunter. They have to be in the market to sign Alex Rios and/or Colby Rasmus now, right?
