    Good post Oscar. This deal seems fair from all views. The only folks that might be a little hesitant are the Rays fans and the Cleveland fans that cherish prospects over everything.

    I think it goes without saying that Lewis needs a clean bill of health before this deal would be agreed upon.

  2. Jason Carlton

    eww no way for Rays. Trade arguably our best prospect already at the major league level for a worse prospect further from the majors and a back end starter when the Rays have too much pitching depth as is?

      I agree with Boss’ take on Flexen. He’s not the TOR pitcher the Rays are looking for. He’s a 4/5 coming off a good year statistically but who probably gets destroyed in the AL East where many of the fly balls he gives up carry for HRs (god help him in NYY little league stadium).

      I’d be fine trading Brujan and getting back Valera, but a better trade for the Rays (if the Rays aren’t trading Brujan for Ramirez) would include Hancock.

  3. M P

    I played around with various trade proposals involving the Mariners/Guardians/Rays to send Haniger or Lewis to Cleveland and Brujan to the Mariners, but I kept running into trouble with the return piece to the Rays. I’d love to get Hancock, but he’s not even 1/2 Brujan’s value. I don’t mind Valera and would prefer him over Jones quite frankly, but the Rays really need a #1/2 pitcher for the 2022 team and I don’t think Cleveland has that outside Bieber and potentially McKenzie. But the biggest problem is that it really makes no sense to involve the Rays at all in a trade where Cleveland gets an outfielder and Seattle gets an infielder. Both those teams are drowning in players the other team should want.

    However, if the Mariners covet Brujan above all others, then a trade like this might work if the Rays are ok with an all prospect trade – This trade doesn’t help or hurt the 40 man struggles of Cleveland and the Rays.
