Thread: Braves helping the yanks

    Default Braves helping the yanks

    Now bear with me here........

    so the D-backs wanted Vaz, FA Pitcher, and Gordon(i think they want him to be their closer).
    -so here is a elaborate deal I came up with

    -First the Yankees sign Jaret Wright
    -Braves sign Millwood, Dye, Burnitz, Drew

    -4 team deal-

    -D'Backs Get-
    ~Mike Hampton (Braves pay 2mil, Yanks pay 5, D'Backs pay 1)
    ~Jaret Wright (Yanks sign and trade and pay all of his salary)
    ~Ugueth Urbina (from DET)

    -Yankees Get-
    ~Randy Johnson
    ~Andrew Jones

    -Braves Get-
    ~Javier Vazaquez (yanks pay 50% of his contract)

    -Tigers Get-
    ~Chris Reitsma
    ~Pete Orr (Braves 2B prospect)
    ~Dioner Navarro (From NY)

    -The D'Backs would get the 2 starters like they wanted and the closer plus would only being paying 1 mil/year.
    -Yankees would do this for Randy Johnson and Andrew Jones.
    -Braves would do this to get a starter and clear some back-loaded salary. Plus after this I would trade Giles to OAK for Hudson, Mulder, or Zito. I probably would also try to trade Chipper to maybe boston for the OF prospect murphy to free up salary and third base for Marte.
    -Detroit would get two future starters and a set-up man for their "new" closer.

    so after all of my madness...........

    -Line-up-
    1.Furcal SS
    2.Drew CF
    3.Estrada C (not sure how else to arrange it)
    4.Burnitz RF (I like him because he is a true clean-up hitter and he bridges the gap to Francoeur well)
    5.Dye LF
    6.Laroche 1B
    7.Marte 3B
    8.Green 2B
    9.Pitcher

    -Rotation-
    1.A's ace
    2.Vazquez
    3.Thomson
    4.Horam
    5.Millwood
    set-up:Cruz (to replace Reitsma)
    closer:Smoltz

    -you would have too tinker with the excacts(line-up, rotation), but I think it would work for all parties and the Braves would have a hell of a pitching staff.

    Lots of "creative thinking" there. Your lineup has Chumper already traded but for whom? An up and coming OF would not satisfy the Braves or the fans for Chumper. There are enough "good, young" players in our system who are ear marked for the "bigs" in the next couple of years (Francoeur, McCann, Marte, and several young pitchers) to fill alot of slots and the bench.

    It's nice to see some creative thinking with a purpose, as opposed to several posters on EPSN-------

    what is the purpose of signing and trading? you really think that Wright only wants a one year deal? (free agents traded in the first year of a multi year deal are allowed to re-file for free agency after the season. It's why baseball doesn't do many sign and trade deals.

    It appears all of your thoughts and some tinkering from others is for naught---

    Yuks have pulled out of the trade market for the Kentucky Head Hunter!!!!!!


    A good read on the demands and offers---------Snakes are demanding a bunch from Yuks, I guess that's a way to deal with those that want to corner the market in the AL East.
