What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
I would make that trade in a hot minute.Who's with me?Both teams would come out good--especially the Rangers lol
Another trade that JD should have , could have pulled off last January when Hamilton was not to be resigned. The need then, as it is now is corner outfield punch. The belief that Murphy could actually be a top corner outfield producer was a colossal over expectation. Profar at second Wednesday nite will cost the Rangers a playoff game and any chance to go further for 2013. Profar is a talent, but first line up the middle is Andrus and Kinsler, not to change unless the Cardinals fall short of their target for lack of a quality up the middle infielder. The second line for the Rangers will be ready by the end of 2014, and that will be Sardinas and Odor, unless JD makes another boner trade in the likeness of Dempster, Garza or Uehara for Ranger young talent, and thus effect future success. So that ship has sailed and the only corner outfielder that could remotely be ready by the end of 2014 was out nearly all season on IR. But keep an eye on ZACK CONE, he really is the only corner outfielder, who can also play center, that may be remotely Meyer's or Trout like. There are others that were at Hickory or Surprise, but would be ready no earlier then mid to late 2015. A trade for the Cardinal's Taveras or if that team lets Beltran walk, sign him for 2014, the major option. But the track history shows, if the hope is that JD makes a strong and supportive trade, we may wait a long time.
I think everyone forgets that Profar is only 20 years old. I fully expect him to be much better next year.
I don't think anyone forgets his age--born Feb. 20, 1993.It has been made painfully obvious to us that we need a power bat in this lineup.Elvis is locked up long term. We have a shortstop and MIF is the strength of our organization.Profar is the trade chip that could head a package to fetch us Cargo,Stanton.When i watch Wil Meyers i just think--that's what we need.I doubt that there is any way that the Rays would trade him--they have the same need.i'm just asking if Rangers fans would like to make that trade.
We're not getting Stanton so forget about that pipe dream unless we trade Darvish to get him.
I think the Rangers should go hard after Jose Dariel Abreau. Cuban sluggers have been very successful of late.A middle of the order bat that is not cost prohibitive. $50--$60 million for 6 years.Don't have to give up a 1st round draft pick. Don't have to trade any prospects.This is a no brainer.
@ Jeremy--I agree that Stanton is too expensive and won't be a Ranger.
The Rockies will listen on both Carlos Gonzalez and Tulo. They would love to get out of Tulo's contract.They would love to have a Profar to plug in at shortstop. They also want a closer.
My trade idea--Jurickson Profar,Tanner Scheppers and Mitch Moreland for Carlos Gonzalez.
profar for myers-great idea if u wanna get hung up on
@JD--So how do you like my Cargo trade idea?
JD, I do know well that you do not like Profar and our RW.
Here goes a simple word that I strongly believe is effective in any field or area of work you name.Profar, a young man. For any young man nothing can substitute experience.
For our skipper, read the latest "One Strike Away ...Twice!" article of this date (which is titled as "Why Does Anyone Has to Be Fired?"). I have not read it all yet because I am merely drunk and tired of reading any English or Japanese or whatever. However, I am pretty sure that this 'One Strike...' man has almost the same opinion as I since I have been reading him over a year. Chao.
The Rays consider a deal if they think Hak-Ju Lee isn't going to be a long term answer at SS. If they think he is then they have zero interest.
Terry.....Your trade idea with Colorado is pretty sound except for....Scheppers
I would offer Profar/Moreland/Murphy/player to be named later- with Texas taking over all salaries still due Tulo....
for Car Go and Tulo with Colorado .
THEN, i would go after Will Myers....offering NATHAN. (make Scheppers the closer with that 99 mph fastball-hez ready).
Unless they win-out the next four days (yeah-you bet) they will have blown it big time.....think of it--2 game lead over Oakland on Sept 1 and 4 game lead ahead of closest possible wild card. Now, in 25 days...Oakland has won the division (the 26th- 8 1/2 games ahead)..TBay leads by 2 or3 games--Cleveland leads by 1 game.GAG/GAG/CHOKE...Need to move SEVERAL people!!!
There is still a 'chance' but I wouldnt go to Vegas with those odds!!
murphy will be a free agent you idiot
Who would have ever thought that Tanner Scheppers would be the key to a Carlos Gonzalez trade? Obviously Profar is the headliner but Scheppers has been extremely valuable to the Rangers this year--contributing more than Profar and/or Moreland. Including Scheppers in this trade is the hard part for me.....but we would be selling high on him.You are not going to get an all star silver slugging, gold glove winning,.300 /.360 /.850 out fielder in the prime of his career without it hurting. Cargo turns 28 next month--and he averages 25 home runs and 90 rbis and 40 stolen bases a year! He is a superstar.No one in their right mind would make him available....without a major haul.The Rockies are going to finish last for the second straight year. Cargo is about to get expensive--they backloaded his contract. Tulowitzki has about a $130 Million contract and is always injured.Jurickson Profar is going to be a star shortstop and he has 5 very inexpensive years of control and would allow the Rockies to trade Tulo . The Rangers are set with Elvis Andrus--Ian Kinsler. And Rougned Odor 2 years out.The Rockies also are in need of a closer--Tanner Scheppers has the look of a closer.Mitch Moreland is a good player with serious power but constantly under performs...sound familiar? The Chris Davis experience might cause some teams to jump at Mitch Moreland.The needs of the Rockies and Rangers match up well i think.The Rangers want to win now--The Rockies are rebuilding.The Rangers are set at middle infield.It's easier to get another set up man or closer than it is to get an all-star out fielder -middle of the order bat in the prime of his career.
to get myers it would take profar,alfaro and m perez. profar has half the value he had this time last year.
