    All those teams already have 3rd baseman. The Giants don't have the prospects to get it done. Which only leaves the Red Sox and Mets. If BOS is up 5 Games in the division they don't need Donaldson really. Its pitching that gets a lot of value at the deadline, position players is more of an offseason trade.

    Obviously Donaldson is an MVP talent and will command a lot but I just can't see getting a crazy package when there are so few teams with a need.
    It's too bad that people are throwing names like Bregman and Benintendi around. Hopefully the media doesn't start doing it and set everyone up for disappointment when the return is only built around top-10-15 prospect and not a guy who would be consensus #1 if he were eligible for lists.

    June 6, 2013: Drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 1st round (2nd pick) of the 2013 amateur draft. Player signed July 12, 2013.

    Damn.

    Kind of inevitable with an old team that happens to be 1-9.

    We look forward to you telling us which player you were thinking of once your kid finishes up with their snooty equestrian club.

    Yeah you're right, but Boston did trade the #25 and #75 top prospects for a closer. You never know with Dumbowski he sacrifices a lot to get championships

    I LOVE this thread because I'm finally not alone in seeing this team as the turd it is. All summer I told clowns we were old, had poor fundamentals, slow declining bats and a thin starting pitcher pool. We're literally one SP injury away from being a 85-90 loss team and I've said that since November.

    Yea.... We all miss the gloomy dome days of 11k. That weird echo that's in the ballpark when nobody is there and being able to hear the beer vendors loud and clear on our television.
