    I like this trade because it is a simple trade. I would be surprised if the Padres would accept it. The Padres GM would be admitting the Myers signing was a complete disaster.

    I appreciate the well thought-out contribution. These are some thoughts I had on it:

    Even with the Myers contract holding extreme weight on the Padres, I can’t imagine they would trade away two of their top young pitchers just to get rid of him, let alone with $33 million attached. Maybe this package would make sense with a Hosmer deal, but I can’t see it happening with Myers.

    I also understand the financial issue with JBJ and the appeal of a prospect like Chatham. However, the Padres just recently traded away a capable outfielder in Manuel Margot, which makes it hard for me to see the value that Bradley Jr. would have for them. Also, while still being talented, I feel as if Chatham would only be roadblocked by a healthy Fernando Tatis Jr., which would only further complicate the Padres’ intent on accepting this deal.

      Thanks for the imput. Maybe it would make more sense from the Pads’ perspective if they ate about 30mil of Myers’ contract and if JBJ and Chatham were subbed with, say, Cameron Cannon and a talented low minors pitcher like Chris Murphy or Brayan Bello. I guess I’m also not as high on Quantrill and Morejon as some. Quantrill was decent for the Pads this past season, but his minor league numbers aren’t all that impressive and he doesn’t have fantastic stuff; he’s a nice piece, but I feel like his first round pedigree is what’s really carrying him. As for Morejon, he’s really talented, but from what I’ve read there’s a decent chance he ends up in the bullpen.
