    Lol. No chance the Rays consider a trade like this.

      Lol, Why not? A lot to give up but World Series SP Domination, holy cow!

        Because the Rays already have arguably the best rotation in baseball. Because the Rays did not give Eflin the largest free agent contract in team history to make him a reliever. Because as good as Burnes and Bieber are, they only have 1 and 2 years of control remaining and their salaries would push Rays payroll much higher than their highest ever payroll (which means this would be a 1 year all in move). Because pitching is not the reason the Rays were bounced from the post- season last year. Rays need bats, not pitching, and this trade has the Rays trading their 2 most promising bats.

        I could go on, but the main take away is this – if the Rays are going to mortgage the future for a 1-2 year window, it will be to acquire bats not arms. No matter how good the Rays pitching is, Rays can’t win if they don’t score.

          I think that there are a lot of good SP staffs in baseball this year;

          Atlanta, Cleveland, Houston, L.A.Dodgers, Milwaukee, N.Y. Mets, N.Y. Yankees, Philadelphia, San Diego, Seattle, Tampa Bay, Toronto,

          Could surprise;

          White Sox, Angels, Marlins, Twins, Cardinals,

          Tampa could be pretty deep with Patino and others (especially when Baz & Kittredge are ready) but I’m just not a believer in Springs or Rasmussen.

          The Bats just need to improve and stay healthy. Brandon Lowe especially. I think they should play him more at 1B and give Brujan another shot at 2B and he needs to improve. Franco as well

            Rays have moved on from Patino. He’s the #7 pitcher at best this year (ie: after the starting 5 and Taj Bradley).

            Springs and Ras don’t care if you’re a believer. They are 3-5 fWAR pitchers and are going to have good years. They’ve been very good with the Rays.
