Yankees get two years of a stud closer and while they lose 4 years of control in Schmidt they get a guy in Bieber who can be in a postseason rotation. Adding about 10 million in total payroll (lose Kahnle and Schmidt). Brewers lower salary while still being competitive. Schmidt fits in nicely. I can reconfigure it, but I thought it was fun to have a Chaurio reunion. But I get it about teenagers and excess outfielders. Cleveland has a year of a starting SS (Bieber’s salary offset) while some potential top 100 prospects (Pereira has already).

I don't see Cleveland trading for a rental SS when they have prospect depth to sort through in the middle infield. I also don't see Cleveland trading Chourio when they already have an outfield weakness.

They do get in the trade Pereira who while struggling (extremely) last season still is only 22 years old and is closer to the majors. As an OF. What other value would you be looking for? Add Peraza who could always be flipped elsewhere? And take out Adames and get something else from MKE.

I don't see Cleveland even thinking about his deal...

What is a counter offer?

I don't see a counter offer since the Guardians aren't getting almost anyone they want... I just don't see a combination that makes any sense mostly because the Yankees in General don't have much Cleveland wants... Sorry, but Orioles would easily outbid the Yankees for Bieber, plus I really doubt Cleveland would trade Chourio and even if they did, they would be targeting Weimer in a sense if they would even want to trade him...

Brewers say no. Schmidt is a BOR and right now the Brewers are loaded with those type starters. They don't want OFs or teenagers as part of a big trade like this.

Gotcha. Well I was just having a bit of fun with the Chaurio reunion. I get it though.

LOL! Cleveland's FO isn't stupid.

Ok. Understood. What is a counter offer?

BigBat

First off, get Chourio out of the deal unless you're sending Cleveland a special player. Secondly, get Adames out of the deal because Cleveland already has Arias whose floor is Adames. Thirdly, Pereira isn't really needed because Cleveland has all of Rodriguez(better hitter), DeLauter(just better), Valera and Brito all in Columbus or soon to be(DeLauter). Lastly, what they hell would Cleveland want Kahnle for? LaLane is a nice, young SP prospect in low A ball. That is basically all you're offering Cleveland in this deal for Bieber and Chourio. I don't know that there is a good counter offer because all the Yankees have to offer would be overpays here. Pereira alone isn't going to get you Bieber and Jones' value is too high. If Cleveland would make a separate trade for another SP then maybe Jones and LaLane for Bieber and Chourio might get their attention. You're not getting Bieber for 7.7. Wait until you see him throw this spring. His time at Driveline was well spent.
