If the Angels trade for an ACE

I'd do it. 

I don't think the Angels would, only because it completely blocks Adell for an entire year and they aren't going to pay a 4th outfielder $23 million for 3 years.

But it's just a thought. If we want to significantly improve the staff at this point we either hand over Adell and Marsh or take on an awful contract. When it's "not my money" I really don't give a shit.

Just a quick thought.  I don’t think he blocks Adell.  Or at least he shouldn’t. Heyward is not some first ballot Hall of Famer.  It is much easier to make the right pure baseball move when it isn’t a Pujols situation.

I think we need to cut our losses and just move into the season, opportunities were missed over and over again.  Next off-season we can pickup an ace, trading top prospects for one or two years of control isn't worth losing them over, we waited so long for this farm payoff.  Even one more solid pitcher doesn't put us near the Astros , not even close, this is barely a WC team at their best.  This is a .500 team with or without another pitcher.

Who? There really isn’t one. And you think pitching demand will be somehow less next year?

You're right. We're screwed.

Point is, it isn’t as easy as simply saying “Wait till next year.” Eppler really needs to earn his money and figure out a trade for an undervalued starter. Maybe there’s more to Price and getting him out of Boston will unlock it. Maybe Boyd figures out how to keep the strikeout ability and give up less homeruns. Maybe there’s someone else out there most of us haven’t thought of. Maybe Stroman is available. I don’t think Eppler can afford to go the whole season with what we have now. It might work out, but the margin of error is narrow.

fuck it, Upton, Marsh, Sandoval and Suarez for Heyward, Darvish, Kimbrel and Kendricks.  Cubs can do a quick reboot.  

Would this trade still leave us the ability to pick up Happ for free?

If the deal is there you take it. Marsh or Adell may be the second coming of a Mike Trout, or they could be Dallas McPherson 2.0. At this point nobody really knows how they'll pan out. If the angels could package Marsh for Clevinger I'd do it in a heart beat. ger

Dallas McPherson got hurt.  His body failed him.  He was not a good example of a prospect that didn’t pan out in the context you present.

Body failing him or not... McPherson was still a huge bust. Trash ass numbers. I knew he was bad but didn’t realize he was that bad after looking at the numbers. Holy shit.

He was too hurt to really judge.  He played in parts of 6 or 7 seasons but didn’t put together a full season of at bats during that time and still managed a .730 ish OPS.  So not horrible.

If there is a deal with Cubs hope somehow we can get Contreras too

I am just saying there are different kinds of busts.

Brandon Wood was a pure talent bust. 100% of him being a bust was he couldn’t hit major league pitching.

There is really no evidence at all that Dallas McPherson could not hit major league pitching.  His back was just wrecked.

I absolutely believe the only difference between McPherson and Ryan Howard is McPherson’s back got fucked out and never recovered.

I can’t believe we’ve gotten to this point that I’m about to say, but what if our best bet for an ACE is to trade Adell?  We have Marsh who can take over, but probably not till next year.  So would we do Adell for Clevinger straight up?  I’d have to consider it which pains me to say.  We do have Marsh to take over RF and Adell would bring more back in a return.

Who would you rather end up with?

Adell or Marsh and Adams and Knowles?

I would rather keep Adell and trade multiple other “top” prospects.

I don’t think the other “top” prospects will bring us back what Adell would bring back. 
 

How about Adell and Canning for Chris Paddack?  I’d strongly consider that.
