If we can't sign Darvish, we've all heard a lot about what it would take to get Archer. I'm curious what the asking price would be for Cole and McCutchen. Would the price be less than Archer? How much less? How much should we be willing to give up for 1 year of McCutchen and 2 years of Cole?
I'll throw out an idea and you can all rip me to shreds!
Max Kepler, Wander Javier, Tyler Jay, and Kohl Stewart for McCutchen and Cole
Why would the pirates go for that deal at all?
Kepler looks to be a solid young corner OF, but isn’t exactly an all star or even a guy teams can pencil in every day due to struggles against LHP ....to be clear, I think Kepler eventually reaches his peak and becomes a borderline all star player during his prime, but any other team is gonna view him on his results, floor etc as well.
Jay, Stewart, Javier aren’t ‘bad’ prospects, but none of them are very great either.
Let’s put it this way, if the Twins were to trade a Cole and McCutchen and we got that package back, we would be pretty damn pissed I imagine.
