The '08 Hot Stove Trade Rumours And Predictions Thread

Postby AussieDodger » Sat Nov 01, 2008 10:46 am

Everybody loves deals, deals and more deals - whatchu got?

Peavy to ?
Holliday to ?
Fielder?
Andruw Jones :-D ?
Willy Taveras?


My first trade prediction of note is my sig - Greg Smith of Oakland to Kansas City for Billy Butler.
Butler is out of favour in KC (hello Jacobs?) and Greg Smith's '08 was a little flukey/lucky. Both teams will address a need, and hopefully Oakland will make off like burglars :-b .

I was going to post Joe Sheehan's wild idea:

Minnesota trades Francisco Liriano to Texas for Jarrod Saltalamacchia,
Elvis Andrus, Hank Blalock and Omar Poveda.

I got a couple of my own:

Royals trade Zach Greinke for JJ Hardy and a prospect.

Indians trade Victor Martinez to the Red Sox

Butler is worth much more than Smith I'd assume.....I'd hope!

Peavy and Greene to Atlanta for a package of Escobar, Cole Rohrbough, and a couple other solid prospects.

Holliday stays put.

Fielder stays put.

Andruw Jones to Florida for a low-A prospect, with LA picking up all but $700,000 of his contract.

Wily Tavares and David Patton to KC for Ryan Shealy.

I was thinking Chone Figgins for Paul Konerko if Teixeira doesn't re-up with the Angels.
Javy can also block any deal that would send him to an NL or AL West team.

Yeah, this has been rumored to happen. I give this a 2/3 chance of happening, 95% if Teixeira doesn't re-sign.

Dang and blast! :-C :-X

The A's on Tuesday announced that rookie first baseman Daric Barton and rookie left-hander Greg Smith underwent successful surgeries on Friday.

Barton, who batted .226 with nine homers, 47 RBIs and a .327 on-base percentage over 140 games, had surgery on his right hip. Smith, who went 7-16 with a 4.16 ERA in 32 starts, had what the team called "loose bodies" removed from his pitching elbow.


So maybe it's not specifically Greg Smith, but I will amend it to "Oakland pitching" for Billy Butler. It could be an expanded deal that includes an Oakland 2B (another KC need) and some other stuff as well.

Why do Colorado want Shealy back? And why do KC want a slow developing A+ level relief pitcher?
That one really doesn't address any needs.
