Recommended Posts

Okay, so here is a thread where you can post trade ideas/trades you want to see happen. I'm sure there will be a lot of Justin Upton rumors so here's an Upton trade involving the D-Backs and the Mariners.

SEATTLE MARINERS RECEIVE:

OF Justin Upton

RHP Blaine Boyer

ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS RECEIVE:

2B Dustin Ackley

1B Justin Smoak

RHP Kanekoa Teixeira

RHP Michael Pineda

Well, time to start posting:

A: Changes to my trade

B: Trade ideas of your own!

And... Go!

Seeing as the Mariners are one of only 4 teams on Upton's no-trade list, that ain't happening.

But I'll bite with an idea of my own:

Royals Get:

DH/LF/1B Adam Lind

SP Zack Stewart

C JP Arencibia

Blue Jays Get:

SP Zack Greinke

3B/LF Alex Gordon

I saw this trade posted on an Orioles message board. What does everyone else think (especially D-Backs fans)?

Orioles get:

Justin Upton

Mark Reynolds

Diamondbacks get:

Jeremy Guthrie

Zach Britton

Josh Bell or Nolan Reimold

Felix Pie

David Hernandez

any prospect (except Manny Machado)

I don't think its enough. I would think any Justin Upton trade would have to involve Brian Matusz or Matt Wieters. I'm really torn on Justin Upton. This is a very rare opportunity to acquire a young emerging superstar, but I'm not sure if he is worth the cost to the O's. By that, I mean getting this one player costs the complementary pieces needed to compete in the AL East. One superstar isn't going to carry a team.

I'll have to disagree. Your giving up your ace (Guthrie), your {supposed} future star (Riemold), and your base stealer/good defensive outfielder (Pie) for a whole lot of strikeouts (and a few home runs here and there).

If I ran the O's, I wouldn't try to make a huge splash this offseason. Showalter ran a >500 team last year. I was at the game where Roberts hit the walk-off in the 10th against the White Sux, making the O's 6-1 under Showalter. It was magical, even though I'm not a big O's fan (but I am a White Sux hater ^_^ )

Headcase, overpaid Closer

for

70-Steal OF yet to hit his prime

Servicable Closer avg. 38 Saves/yr, 2.22 ERA last 5 years.

Seems fair to me.

This is clearly an imitation of those mouthbreathing idiots who like to call up radio shows and propose preposterous trades they think should be taken seriously in which their team gives up junk for another team's gold. Clearly. :P

That would be a fair deal only if they took Oliver Perez and Luis Castillo.

No, it wouldn't. Why would they give up their star lead off man of the future, a closer that might break Hoffman's saves record some day, and a future Cy Young/20 game win starter? That would be the stupidest trade in the history of trades!

Consider the source. :P
