    This one makes too much sense. Maybe one of the more logical trades that I have seen posted. As a Brewer fan I hope it happens.

  2. Marcus Anderson

    Astros wouldn’t take a guy who’s coming off major shoulder surgery and another guy that’s probably going to be suspended to start the year. They have enough PR problems.

  3. Jerry Crawley

    That trade works for everyone. Most sensible 3 way trade that I have seen.

  4. Alex G

    Alvarez is already going to DH so I don’t know where Andujar could fit with them unless they transition him over to 1B. The Yankees have 3 starters slated to hit free agency next year and wouldn’t trade Garcia and German to fill an area that would still be a strength even without Betances.

    • Karthik Iyer

      that’s the premium you pay for a top of the line closer with 4 years of control

      • Karl Ozolins

        No, it’s a 3 way trade, it’s the premium for getting rid of Happ which it wouldn’t take this much in total plus Hader

        They could probably pull this off with lesser prospects to dump Happ and get Hader.

        • Karl Ozolins

          The other thing here is why in the hell would the Yankees help the Astros by adding to their roster with two starting players? Same goes for the Astros indirectly doing so.

          • Peter Onder

            Yankees should accept if this trade gets proposed. They get 4 years of a star bullpen guy and drop a bad contract without giving up anyone in their starting lineup in 2019. Astros, however, give away Correa, a star player, in exchange for a lesser player by far in the starting lineup and a 4.00 ERA starter. It doesn’t make sense for Astros.

  5. John Rodgers

    The Brewers wouldn’t take on $25M in salary for one year of Happ, 2 years of Correa and a 5′-9″ minor league pitcher that may never see the majors. Happ’s vesting option only makes him less attractive. You underestimate David Stearns.

    • Peter Onder

      That prospect is the number 62 prospect in baseball and is projected to hit the majors next year. You are getting that plus 2 years of a star player for a bullpen arm, admittedly a great one, but still won’t have as much impact as Correa. All of that and you have to take one bad contract that if you work around expires after this season. Yes, it is expensive, but you are having more talent flow in than out.

      • Karl Ozolins

        I can’t agree with that. i’m not condoning him in any way but German is a potential 2 easily, maybe a 1. He was a top 5 pitcher in baseball for a good portion of last year. Andujar was the 2nd runner up rookie of the year and arguably should of been if not for a player who has barely played a full season. Garcia is the youngest pitcher in AAA and already and arguably has the best breaking ball in the minors.
        I get it has to hurt, I get that. All I’m saying is for example Yanks could offer Andujar, Frazier *whose value took months to drop from 20 to 13.5 when nothing changed* and a couple top 30 guys. Happ’s negative value lines up approximately with Gil not Garcia almost 3x his current worth.
        And like I said let someone else help the Cheatros.

        • Peter Onder

          Are we talking about the same pitcher? Domingo German had a 4.02 ERA last season, and 140 innings of 4.02 ERA is not number 1 or 2 rotation stuff, and certainly not a top 5 pitcher in baseball. Hes 27 so its not like hes a fresh prospect, this should be the prime of his career. Garcia is a nice prospect but best breaking ball in minors is a bit of a stretch. According to MLB pipeline hes not even in the top 10 prospects for right handed pitchers. Andujar did have a nice season in 2018 but an .855 ops and 2.5 bWar doesn’t make up for missing almost all of 2019. Baseball reference projects him to have an .817 ops in 2020 which is about right I think. My main point is none of the players the Yankees give up look to be big parts of their future plans, and none of them were big in 2019. Hader was big in 2019 and 4 years of a lights out setup guy to bridge to Chapman or even close is more valuable. To address your point about the Astros, if you don’t make a trade just because it might help someone else that is a bad move. Focus on improving your own team.

    Good job Vollbc 74. We got great comments regarding the pros and cons for all 3 teams, and as I write my comment I see 19 thumbs down and 17 thumbs up. My guess these ratings come from fans of all 3 teams and they give their vote according to how they feel this trade will fit their team. That’s what I call a good trade proposal. I am going to add a thumbs up because I can see all 3 teams benefiting from their additions.
