My dream scenario


Stradling

Recommended Posts

for this off season goes something like this.  We win the bid for Tanaka, we trade Aybar for Lance Lynn or one of those arms that can be a solid 3 or 4.  We sign Smith and the Beard for the bullpen.  Burnett comes back healthy, as does Pujols.  We trade Trumbo to SD in a package for Headley.  This gives us a solid rotation, and a better bullpen.  It gives us a much needed third baseman. It lets us go with Trout, Peter and Hamilton in the OF with Calhoun as the DH/Back up 1st baseman.  If we don't get Tanaka then we move Howie to get another Starter and go with Green at 2nd. 

 

Rotation:

Weaver

Wilson

Tanaka/Lynn

Lynn/Arm from Howie Trade

Richards

I agree with most of what you say.  However, I just can't see us getting Tanaka if the Yankees and Dodgers are in on him as well.  I also think I would take Nathan on a two year deal over The Beard.  If Tanaka isn't signed here then Trumbo + another position player has to fetch a young starting pitcher.

That would be an excellent off-season.  In fact, if that were to happen, I believe expectations would and should be high...like division champs high.

 

However, I dont see the team winning the Tanaka sweepstakes nor do I see a Trumbo/Headley swap.  I dont think Trumbo's power translated well to that park and the Padres may not want that deal.

 

Smith and the beard for the pen is a must (or Balfour) and I think the Lynn for Aybar trade is doable.

 

I hope that what you said comes to fruition.  Well, even if 2/3rds to half happened, that would still be a solid off-season.

 

And, please stop the Aybar for Miller talk.  That is non-sensical.  That is not nearly enough value in Aybar to get Miller straight-up, so even suggesting it is fantasy.

You can keep Lynn. Lynn is the young version of Westbrook and Blanton. It looks like he has the same "diet" as Blanton.

That's where I'm at too scott. To be honest, depending on the price, if we fail in grabbing tanaka I'd be in for both hudson and arroyo. If the rough annual salary would be similar to tanaka and vargas, and we don't get tanaka...

Either way, we NEED two SP's, and the hard part is one has to be a very good 3 at worst.

We definetely have our work cut out for us.

And you need to please stop with the Aybar for Lynn talk.  It would take way more than just Lynn to get Aybar.  It would take Lynn, one of your proven relievers and a prospect.  Even suggesting Aybar for Lynn straight-up is a fantasy.

 

Lynn is a #4 at best.

Jays trade package mentioned above: Iannetta (5), Kendrick (9), Blanton (8) for Mark Buehrle (19), Sergio Santos (4), and Izturis (3).

They could also throw in a prospect like CJ Cron to make it happen. What that does is give the Jays a C and 2B plus a salary dump in Blanton and we take back 27 M in Salaries for 2014 plus the same amount in 2015.
