Why would you trade Heaney. He made 30 starts a year ago and had an under 4 era. He is still young. Heaney is a vital part of this rotation. 

I’d still trade Heaney to the Cubs for Quintana and Lester. Paired with Teheran, the Angels would have three of the most durable SPs in the last decade, and while all would basically be average, it’s be the best bet against the injury bug biting us again. All that money clears up next season. Cubs can use money saved to sign Castellanos like they’d like. Fair deal I think.

You’d probably have to add more than just Heaney to that trade. And I don’t know if I want our starting rotation to get older. I’d rather have mid to late 20 year olds in the rotation than a 36 year old Lester in the rotation for what it’s worth.

Cubs would save an enormous amount of money, something like $30-35m...enough for them to get Castellanos back and make a couple other small moves. Maybe it takes another lesser piece of two, but I think the salary savings would be attractive enough for Chicago.

Angels would eat a ton, but it all hits FA after this year, and Heaney only has two years of control left anyways I believe. Basically just turn two Heaney seasons over two years into two Heaney seasons this year. 

Makes the most of Heaney’s potential trade value and allows the Angels to land 60+ starts, 350+ IP of league-average, 4.00 ERA ball, presumably, without surrendering any of the key prospects we have. If things so south, they’ll have four SP between these two, Teheran, and Bundy to shop at the deadline to contenders.

Ideally Sandoval or Suarez step into Heaney’s spot next year, and the Angels ship again in FA.

He had a 4.15 ERA and has never been anything spectacular. However teams may see the cost and hope that the upside still exists. I for one don't believe it does.

 

serviceable!

Can someone, (who went to Hofstra) explain why Hofstra keeps getting referenced, I get the joke, but I also don't know where it started.

As far as Adreise for basically Madero (DFA) and Beasley, kind of think he's JC Ramirez's replacement.

I still expect the Angels to try to acquire a starter of the caliber we were discussing, but in that case, he ends up out of the pen.

Good Add.

Gotta keep the HR down.

He also looks like the repair guy who gets too friendly, and keeps talking to you about havasu, and you just want him to hurry up and fix the toilet because you have to go to work.

Also to everyone saying that we DFA'd our 11th ranked prospect for this guy

 

Also on our very own rankings he is ranked 27th but that is skewed by someone ranking him 10th. He was unranked by 6 other members.....

Quote

 

27. LUIS MADERO RHP (23)

Stats: 5.03 ERA, 105.2 IP, 31 walks, 98 strikeouts in A+/AA.

Ranking Trends: 10, 20, NR, NR, NR, NR, NR, NR.

ETA: 2022

Comments: Madero was a bit of a darling among Angelswin prospects hounds after his breakout 2018 campaign (3.49 ERA, 27 walks and 95 strikeouts in 105.2 IP in A/A+). While his ERA rose substantially, his peripherals held steady and perhaps we’re being a bit too bearish on him. He isn’t far from being on the major league depth chart.

Thats where they were ranked prior to 2019.

MLB hasn’t updated their rankings but BA has, and they had Beasley 28 and Madero unranked. 

Still, I would’ve much preferred they just signed Colin McHugh
