    Live look at Cincy sending out trade offers expecting someone to hit accept



    In reality, once their filter is removed it looks like this

    The Phillies are putting a couple guys on the block for those looking for some extra pieces during the stretch run:

    Alex Cobb: 2.92 xERA; 2.92 FIP. Been essentially a #2 pitcher all year.
    - Asking Price: Top 50 Prospect + 1st Round Pick

    Kenley Jansen: another year as a top-tier closer. 24 saves; 2.82 FIP
    - Asking Price: Top 50 prospect + 2nd Round Pick

    Given the score in my matchup this week and Arizona leading 13-2, I've decided to write off this season and focus on retooling for 2023. Especially with both Story and Bryant on the IL and Buxton not 100%. Here are some names I'm putting on the block that could help teams during the stretch run:

    Joe Musgrove:
    - He's an elite starter and is 29. It needs to be a really good package of high talent prospects who are close to the Majors.

    Liam Hendricks and/or Craig Kimbrel:
    - Two top elite closers who could solidify any teams bullpen. Need a top 50 prospect for either + a high pick or a young BP arm who could help me next season.

    Daniel Bard:
    - have received interest from multiple teams. Still prefer a late first rounder or early second round pick for him though. Pitching very well still and getting saves, so he can be of help to any playoff contender.

    Scott Barlow:
    - Pitching well and getting saves in KCs bullpen, so he can be of help to any playoff contender. Looking for a late first rounder + a BP arm that could help me next season.

    Jordan Lyles:
    - a great option for SP depth and innings. Lyles has put up respectable numbers and any team with a thin rotation could benefit from his innings. 9 wins, 4.40 FIP, 105 K's, 2.44 K/9. Looking for an asset that could help me next season.


    Chad Kuhl:
    - another decent option for SP depth and innings who is expected back Aug 19th. Asking price not that high - can take on a IL reliever or SP or bat that could help me next season.

    Matt Moore:
    - has SP eligibility and has put up solid ratios this season. 6 holds, 2.73 xERA, 3.11 FIP, 56 K's Might sneak in a Hold or two and add some K's which can help in a really tight matchup during the Playoffs. Looking for a early second round pick + a reliever that could help me next season.

    Trey Mancini:
    - have received interest on him. Looking for similar valued MLB pieces who could be on the IL that could help me next season. Or a Top-50 prospect.

    I feel like there's a piece missing to that trade.
    Personally, I would rather have Nola than all the other stuff combined, but adding in Mantiply, Pederson and Smyly makes it kind of ridiculous.
    Can maybe see some justification if you just look at the prospect rankings, but really should have shopped around a little more than this.

    I had inquired on Nola just on Wednesday, and was told he wasn’t available.

    It's Zac Veen again.

    Some people think he's an elite fantasy prospect and others think he's just a guy

    He might be a Christian Yelich lite.

    Rockies top hitting prospects from 2016, 2018, and 2020:

    2016

    Brendan Rodgers
    Ryan McMahon
    Davil Dahl
    Dom Nunez
    Trevor Story
    Raimel Tapia
    Forrest Wall
    Tyler Nevin

    2018

    Brendan Rodgers
    Ryan McMahon
    Colton Welker
    Ryan Vilade
    Garrett Hampson
    Tyler Nevin
    Forrest Wall
    Tom Murphy
    Brian Mundell
    Yonathan Daza
    Sam Hilliard
    Daniel Montano
    Wes Rogers

    2020

    Zac Veen
    Drew Romo
    Ezequiel Tovar
    Elehuris Montero
    Warming Bernabel
    Benny Montgomery
    Brenton Doyle
    Yanquiel Fernandez
    Dyan Jorge
    Adael Amador
    Juan Brito
    Colton Welker

    I honestly think that their only development success on the hitting side, going back 8 years or so, is Trevor Story. Ryan McMahon should be an above average hitter and he isn't - they are getting maybe a 20th percentile outcome out of him. Tapia was turned into shit. Hilliard, Hampson, Vilade, Welker, all ruined. Rodgers obviously hasn't met his potential, not even close. David Dahl essentially only has some positive career fWAR because of BABIP and injuries preventing him from putting up negative WAR seasons.
