Obviously, Harper to the Dodgers for Urias, Seager, De Leon, and Alex Verdugo

I would do this, maybe giving up too much though?  Something tells me Giolito will bust:

That is the ultimate win this season move, because after the 2016 season, the Nationals would have no pitching and no payroll to add anyone.

DJ LeMaheiu doesn't really do anything for me.

I wouldn't do that trade. Gonna need Giolito after this season.

The only way I'm dealing Giolito is if I'm getting a young-ish gamechanger at a position of need, like center field. He's vital to the replacing Strasburg and Zimmermann plan.

Only give up Giolito only if Arenado is involved.

Yep. And Colorado destroys the careers of pitchers.

Counterpoint: they've never had any good pitchers/pitching prospects. Will be interesting to see what happens to Jon Gray and Hoffman.

Edit: Jimenez, Hampton, and de la Rosa were just guys -- Jimenez being the best of 'em. I just don't think they've ever had an elite talent. Gray and Hoffman could be.

2010 Jimenez was a hell of a lot more than just a guy.  He had some of the best stuff I've ever seen in person.

You're right, he did have great stuff. Probably why he's ended up playing multiple seasons after the Rox.

He couldn't put it together consistently, and still hasn't. May be coaching, may be talent. Who knows?

I'd still say there isn't enough evidence to say CO wrecks pitchers.

Wouldn't you also have to promise the Rangers' GM a job as part of that deal for when he gets fired after making it?  Ditto for the Ross for Buxton trade.

Fired? Those GMs would be lucky to make it out of their offices alive!

Honest question

I know dealing trout would be borderline unthinkable.  The Angels are trying to compete and a deal like this would fill a lot of their holes and free up additional payroll space for them
To sign a Cespedes, upton, Gordon, or whomever.  This deal would have to get something started wouldn't it?

I don't think so.  Trout is on a team favorable contract and there's a tendency of teams to put high end values on their own.  I have not looked at their rotation lately so I don't know who Ross replaces / displaces.  Both Rendon and Cargo have injury risk reputations, and Rendon is mostly just projectable upside rather than established like Trout.  I don't see this as getting you in the door.

Rendon, Revere, Roark, Ramos, Werth, Fedde, Difo -->Trout, Pujols

then they can DH Werth, play Revere and Calhoun on the corners, and sign Cespedes to man center.

Strasburg, Paps --> Tyson Ross, Austin Hedges 

SD is one of the teams Paps can be traded to w/o his permission.

Then we'll sign Chris Davis

2B Murphy
CF Trout
RF Harper
1B Pujols
3B/LF Davis
3B/LF Zimm
SS Espi
C Hedges

When Turner is ready for leadoff he takes Espi's slot and moves to the 1 spot with everyone else moving down 1 in the order.
