Braves/Tigers Trade
« on: January 31, 2013, 03:40:59 PM »
Hot off the Press the Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting the Braves and Tigers have made a deal. Reports say that

MI Walker, Neil, $0.4m (P-2013)
SP Marcum, Shaun, $9.5m (2014)
3-21 ATL

are headed to Detroit for

SP Cain, Matt, $14m (2015)
   -$4m paid in 2013
SP Crosby, Casey, $0.3m (P-n/a)
OF Benson, Joe, $0.3m (P-n/a)

Kinda a tough deal for us. As most know I think Marcum is very underrated. Losing MI depth is never a smart thing, but double edge for me. It helps me get a few youngsters who should help my overall depth sooner rather than later. Im definitely not fond of gaining cap in future years, but the additional year on Cains deal  makes it worth it. After seeing FA, ill take the extra year.

Thanks Shed for the smooth talks.

:DET: approved

Tigers brass covet Neil Walker who's bat plays well in PIT in the two-hole in front of McC, plus his ripe age of 27 and favorable contract/renewal make him an ideal member our squad and worthy of selling high on Mr. Matt "Consistent" Cain. Marcum is a solid No.3 starter with No.2 potential. We like his move to the Mets staff and potential there. Adding a pick helps weigh the deal. We felt we could downgrade from Cain to Marcum since our SP staff is strong. The loss of older specs Benson and Crosby hurts our depth, but both are at positions we felt we could lose some.

Thanks Corey, good deal for both  :winner:

  • AdamBombs: Having his arm at 2nd i great also. He has a cannon turning that DP with Hardy

    Today at 01:54:31 PM
  • jblum: I was joking bud, the 76ers will be there in 2025
    Today at 01:55:27 PM
  • Jonathan: Well, the spurs weren't good until they tanked to get Duncan.
    Today at 01:56:36 PM
  • Jonathan: Sixers will be good this year. Jah changes everything.
    Today at 02:00:48 PM
  • redbeard82: revisionist history there my friend. the only reason they weren't good that year was admiral was hurt. the celts were the tankers, they just didn;t get rewarded in the lottery for it
    Today at 02:01:52 PM
  • Jonathan: Tank Job
    Today at 02:03:59 PM
  • redbeard82: and that doomed pitino's pro coaching adventure with the Cs
    Today at 02:04:14 PM
  • Jonathan: It worked.
    Today at 02:04:26 PM
  • Jonathan: Same excuse Knicks and Lakers had this year. They tanked.
    Today at 02:05:07 PM
  • Brent: lol @ Lakers, can't land anyone in FA.
    Today at 02:40:00 PM
  • jblum: Knicks can even do better
    Today at 02:40:55 PM
  • Brent: Knicks got turned down by Greg Monroe.
    Today at 02:42:29 PM
  • Brent: Melo is the worst thing that has happened to the Knicks.  Well him and Phil Jackson, but Phil drafting the Zinger might be a good thing.  Start the rebuild now and see if anyone is desperate enough to take the one dimensional over paid Melo off their hands.
    Today at 02:43:57 PM
  • jblum: They got a nice center in Lopez and an above average guard in Afflalo
    Today at 02:44:43 PM
  • Brent: Robin Lopez?
    Today at 02:45:16 PM
  • jblum: Yeah
    Today at 02:46:27 PM
  • jblum: He isn't as bad as you think.. but he isn't worth almost 14m
    Today at 02:47:05 PM
  • Brent: I know all about Robin Lopez, he was our center in NO.
    Today at 02:47:31 PM
  • Brent: They also had Mozgov, but gave him away.  Kinda dumb now they have to settle for Robin Lopez.
    Today at 02:48:09 PM
  • jblum: I can see the Knicks landing an 8 seed, 5th at most
    Today at 02:57:38 PM
  • jblum: Pacers are a big sleeper in the east
    Today at 03:00:40 PM
  • AdamBombs: Bud Norris going to the bullpen. Gausman is takinghis spot in the rotation
    Today at 03:50:21 PM
  • redbeard82: Bout time they stopped BooYah! ing with Gausman
    Today at 03:52:47 PM
  • AdamBombs: Buck always gives Vets  a long leash. Plus Gausman was the only guy with options and they wanted to limit his innings considering their luck with young arms
    Today at 03:58:11 PM
  • Jonathan: hmmmm. Damarious Randall a CB, there goes all his value in fantasy.
    Today at 03:59:14 PM
  • AdamBombs: I dont think it has affected Gausman at all though
