Trade Cole to the Yanks for Frazier, Adams

Trade Harrison for bullpen help

Trade Cutch for as many prospects as you can get

Trade Nova for what you can

Acquire Starlin Castro

Use Meadows in a package for Archer

Yes to the first and last.

No to the middle four.

No use in acquiring Frazier if you are keeping Cutch, Polanco, and Marte. I would prefer to move Cutch or Polanco.

I am retracting my desire to acquire Castro. I know he is basically Harrison from an offensive perspective, it was more for contract reasons. I didn’t realize that the final 2 years of Harrison’s contract (19 and 20) were team options. Knowing that I just assume keep Harrison however if someone was willing to over pay I’d consider it.

Any reason why you wouldn’t want to trade Nova?

Yeah, I mean, he's only played 3 halves of baseball here, two of which were brilliant. But, yeah dump him for a bag o' balls. Got it.

They traded Cole for a package of significantly less worth than Frazier and Adams.

Traded Cutch for 2 players, that can hardly be considered valuable.

They will not pay for Castro.

And, until he tired, he has been pretty damn good. Pitching wins and you picked up 3 arms for 1 this weekend. I don't see anyone deeper in the NLC.

I made this post when I believed the rumors of Cole being worth Adams and Frazier, obviously he wasn't.

Wait, What?

Lets have a look:

Tiallon - When has this dude had any luck at all? Talk about a guy who is consistently hurt
Nova - Again... The national league has figured him out
Kuhl
Williams
Glasnow - Did I miss something?

Did you know: The Pirates team ERA was higher in 2017 than it was in 2016 when they had Niese, Locke and Voglesong

WTF?

ERA means shit. You should know that.

But, if you must, compare the ERA's from the 1st half to the 2nd, and especially the last 1.5 months.

You also forgot Kingham, Keller, Sadler, among others.

Care to tell me who has a better, deeper pitching in the NLC? Name names.

They finished behind Milwaukee and Chicago and just ahead of STL according to Baseball Reference and they just traded away their best pitcher per the same source.

I'm not talking bout last year. Half of Chicago's staff is gone or going. STL has only gotten worse. Name me who on Mil you want instead of what we have? How deep do they go, or was last year an aberration (hint, yes).

Everyone likes to make fun, roll eyes or get snarky.

I'm still waiting on some answers.
