well, we are trying to be realistic.  Read and Kieboom aren't ready yet.

If we're trying to be realistic, we probably should have stopped posting on this thread a long time ago.

It's unfair that my man TribeTime got banned just for being an effective troll while this insipid assclown gets to shart out a new "thought" every other week.

San Diego Padres get: Trea Turner
Washington Nationals get: a case of Ballast Point

Total steal for Mike Rizzo if he pulls it off

Make it the Habanero Sculpin and we'll have to give them more.

Oh, then you can have "a few Rafael Bautista types."

Robles, Fedde, Kieboom, Difo, Ross, Difo, Taylor, Antuna, 

FOR

Bumgarner, Posey, McCutchen, Strickland, Longoria

if the giants tank.  lots of salary relief for them.

Can we actually trade Difo twice?  If so, I'm in...

That's...amazing.   

A top prospect, a Tommy John survivor with a mid/back-end rotation projection, not even sure which Kieboom, another mid-rotation Tommy John victim (at best) who hasn't been effective since 2016, three utility infielders (at this point, Antuna looks to me like a third Difo - questionable as to whether he can play SS, needs a lot of work at the plate), and a fourth outfielder who plays a legitimately good CF.

for

a 27-year old 4-time all-star starter with a team option for next year at a massively below-market salary, the best catcher in baseball over the last 10 years (who is still only 31), a former superstar who is a rental but OPSed .849 last season, a Gold Glove third baseman signed for 4 more years on what is still a below-market deal even taking into account his decline, plus a 25-year-old back-end reliever under team control until 2022.

For that package, you'd be lucky to get Bumgarner alone, and there's no chance you'd get Posey, much less both of them - and leaving aside the others.   That package is less than the Nats traded for their designated DL midget, and the designated DL midget (when healthy sometime in 2024) would be at best the third best player in that group coming back from the Giants.

In summary, I love it.  I love everything about it.   But maybe we could throw in Wieters?

Roark, solis, Belt --> Angels
Bumgarner, Strickland --> Nats
Jo Adell, Jahmai Jones, Griffin Canning, Matt Thaiss, Robles, Fedde -->Giants

In effect I guess i'm saying I think Robles and Fedde is enough (facilitated by this three team deal and assuming the angels like it) to upgrade Roark and Solis to Bumgarner and Strickland.

Thoughts?

We should only bring Hunter Strickland to the Nats if Jonathan Papelbon can come with him as his manager, and cut WWE-style promos on Harper.

In all seriousness, Bumgarner threw 111 innings last year, he's yet to pitch in the majors this year.  He's nowhere near worth Robles until he's back and throwing well again.

Trade Herrera, Madson, murphy, and reynolds for prospects.

This off-season:

Re-sign Bryce and trade said prospects along with Robles, kieboom, and Garcia for trouty poo

Would we get more trading Eaton or Robles?  Legitimately curious

Eaton would be harder to replace. There aren’t many true leadoff guys and he’s one of them.

IMHO he's also one of the few leaders in the current clubhouse.
