Houston/Cincinnati Trade
« on: November 25, 2012, 07:39:39 PM »
:HOU: gives:
SP - Alexander Torres
RP - Rafael Soriano $11.7m (2013)
$6M in 2012 Cap (attached to Soriano)

:CIN: gives:
SP - Taylor Guerreri
CI - Seth Mejias-Brean



:HOU: accepts. 
We pick up a pitcher who we think might have ace potential (or high-end #2).  We are thrilled to cut over $5M in 2012 cap space, as well.  Torres and Soriano are both nice players, but we couldn't pass on Taylor's arm.

:CIN: agree.

Taking aim at competing in 2013, Guerreri and Mejias-Brean do little to nothing to contributing.  Tampa is notoriously slow bringing up young pitching, meaning Guerreri could be more like 3 or 4 years from real contributions.

In return for dealing two very talented specs, I get a near ready SP/RP in Torres who, if he can limit his BB/9 could be a very successful pitcher.  Having a strong K/9 and GB%, I am hopeful his stature does not keep him from staying a starter.  Also acquired, is a closer looking for a home.  Even as setup man, Soriano would have value due to high Ks total.  And the kicker is the possibility that Soriano ends 2012 as a Draft Pick Compensation worthy RP.  The $6m towards his remaining contract makes the price tag on Soriano stomachable.

Thanks to :HOU: for working to find agreeable terms.

  • Gr8O: Wow mcdavid just won MVP over Crosby
    June 21, 2017, 11:26:17 PM
  • indiansnation: wow thats crap
    June 21, 2017, 11:28:54 PM
  • Jonathan: Pitt had to give a future 2nd to make sure they took him. Vegas nets picks #13 and 15 this year plus a few future 2nds.
    June 21, 2017, 11:30:13 PM
  • Jonathan: Specs in Theodore, Tuch and gusev.
    June 21, 2017, 11:31:28 PM
  • indiansnation: just watching all of it know
    June 21, 2017, 11:32:40 PM
  • Gr8O: i could have even seen the goalie winning but guess mcdavid won because he is the only one over 100 points and lead in assists with 70
    June 21, 2017, 11:32:41 PM
  • indiansnation: just got home
    June 21, 2017, 11:32:54 PM
  • indiansnation: mcdavid can kiss my @@@
    June 21, 2017, 11:34:43 PM
  • Jonathan: Only Chicago has less cap space than Vegas now. They hooked Pitt up IMO. Saved that cap. Overall a decent team, but very uninspiring offense, I am sure that is the focus with 3 of top 15 picks + tuch
    June 21, 2017, 11:35:26 PM
  • indiansnation: slap in face to my boy crosby
    June 21, 2017, 11:36:09 PM
  • indiansnation: vegas is probably not done tradeing yet
    June 21, 2017, 11:37:14 PM
  • Jonathan: McDavid is only 3rd player to ever win Art Ross with part of the season as a teenager.  4th youngest to win MVP. He has had a legendary start to career and only 20.
    June 21, 2017, 11:44:37 PM
  • Jonathan: Crosby took home the Conn Smythe.... that is McDavid's next goal lol
    June 21, 2017, 11:48:28 PM
  • Jonathan: Crosby will get a shot at becoming first to win that award 3 years in a row and tie Roy for most all time. Former Pen Mario also won it back to back
    June 21, 2017, 11:51:41 PM
  • indiansnation: flluery is all excited about being drafted im happy for him. they already said heis there starting goalie
    June 22, 2017, 12:03:48 AM
  • Jonathan: Solid with G's and D. Pitt will be fine with Murray.
    June 22, 2017, 12:06:58 AM
  • snugerud: I am a pens fan and will say McDavid barring injury will surpass crosby
    June 22, 2017, 11:42:08 AM
  • snugerud: he is bigger, faster and i think with time will have the same play making ability
    June 22, 2017, 11:42:43 AM
  • GypsieDeathBringer: What does surpass mean
    June 22, 2017, 12:01:36 PM
  • GypsieDeathBringer: He probably won't win more stanley cups.  Probably won't score more points because the league is calling less and less penalties.  Won't win as many gold medals because the NHL doesn't participate.
    June 22, 2017, 12:02:15 PM
  • GypsieDeathBringer: His relative corsi will be higher though.  He'll have that going for him.
    June 22, 2017, 12:04:57 PM
  • snugerud: i mean that in a completely non scientific sense.  With the changes the NHL has gone through its difficult to compare any player from one decade to the next
    June 22, 2017, 03:54:18 PM
  • snugerud: so ya , i mean that in the way that crosby could have , but can never surpass gretzky.  I wonder if we will ever see a 200 point season again
    June 22, 2017, 03:56:40 PM
  • GypsieDeathBringer: I'm sure we will when the NHL gets sued beyond belief for not doing enough for concussions and they have to go to 4 on 4, or start calling penalties again.
