    Probably not enough, although I’m not sure I trust Al Avila to get a good deal for the Tigers. The Tigers don’t have to trade Boyd or Greene. Boyd is under team control through 2022 and Greene through 2020. That gives them more value than other potential players who will be FA next year. The Tigers can trade them in the winter or next year (or maybe keep Boyd). Bohm is a potential star and Haseley is probably at least an everyday player. The Phillies want to win now (or the near future), but the Tigers are looking to compete in a couple of years. If Philly wants to win now, it seems to me, they need to pay a bit of a premium to get players that will be more than rentals. And they don’t necessarily need Haseley – They have OF Bruce (FA in 2021), McCutchen (FA in 2023), Harper, Kingery under team control until 2026, and Herrera (FA in 2021or 2022).

      I feel you. To be honest, I would expect more in that package (Garcia, Hasley, Howard?) but the values didn’t match for this website haha.

      And as weird as it sounds, I kinda do trust Avila. I understand the hate for the JD trade and such, but the market always dictates the trades, and the market has been brutal towards sellers in recent years. Full disclosure, if Avila doesn’t ace this deadline, I’m off the boat. But I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and see what he can do with pieces that are actually valuable.

        If the market has been brutal towards sellers in recent years, why would you expect more?

          I’m not sure yet if it’ll be better or not, but once all the trades get going we’ll see if it better than years past, and then we can see if Avila got enough in return.

          Also, the trades we have seen so far have been better compared to past years with similar trades. Two 17-year-olds from Boston for Andrew Cashner, who may not even make the playoff roster.

          A poor pitcher to eat innings in Homer Bailey for a top 20 prospect from the A’s, according the the MLB prospect rankings.

          Then the Rays sending Nick Solak, who fangraphs had close to their top 100 overall prospects, for a wildcard in all reality. This trade cannot really be compared to anything being how weird it was. Nonetheless, a potential top 100 prospect guy has been moved and not for much.

          So we’ll see how everything plays out.
