    They would be stupid to move him now. His stock is down. It's the typical conundrum. If the player is performing, you want to keep them. If they aren't performing, you don't want to deal them when their stock is low
    The rebuild is complete.

    Probably, but His price will never be low, everybody knows his upside, the problem is the health and that question mark will be there no matter what

    To me, if your suggested trade is for a good player, the suggested trade actually shows you value that player highly.

    You have to give to receive. Theo knows that. DD knows that.
    Also a function of where a team is - the marginal value of a WAR basically. A 60 win team's decision in this sort of thing is much different than a 91 win one.

    Well, JBJ's stock fell after last year, too.

    JBJ at least has been healthy and has shown a unique ability to be a defensive standout. Yes, his value dipped, but Salazar’s dropped more

    I don't really want to trade JBJ for Salazar, but if we get JD, it's a close call.

    DH: JD
    CF: JBJ
    Bench: HRam or Moreland

    vs
    LF: JD
    CF: Beni
    DH: HRam

    HRam is probably a better hitter than JBJ, so we don't lose the full value of JBJ by trading him. Yes, we lose on D, but gaining in the rotation is major value added.

    But there is a big difference between giving up a good prospect and giving up a good prospect for 2 months of a new player. Epstein also dealt similarly ranked Eloy Jimenez, whom he presumably loved, but in return got several years of extremely underpriced Jose Quintana

    Now, if someone dislikes Salazar, I can understand how they feel like I am undervaluing JBJ, but I don't see it that way. I think Salazar is one hell of a pitcher. (The injury concerns are valid, however.)
    But would you trade 3 years of Bradley for one year of Salazar? How about two months of Salazar?

    And who would you move first and why?

    Word is that Epstein gave Cashman the oportunity to choose between Torres and Jimenez.

    There's no other player I can think right now, which will make me trade one of those three.


    If Trout is available, this will be the order in my mind to start trade conversations:

    1st Severino, he's great, but there are more pitchers in his level on the league
    2nd Judge, it's almost impossible for him to duplicate his rookie season, he might have the shorter career (unless he's moved to DH in a few years)
    3rd Sanchez, he plays a premium position, no matter what some people say I believe he will be a plus defender very soon.

    No and no.

    Salazar makes $5M this year and has 2 arbs.

    JBJ makes $6.1M and has 2 arb years left.

    I don't make the trade without JD.

    With JD, I'm on the fence.

    I'd prefer something like JBJ, Johnson, Marrero & Hembree for Salazar and Meritt or Anderson.
