Darvish Trade Rumors

After three straight bad season endings reminiscent of the nineties and aughts, this year’s off-season is… well, apparently we’re not talking about it. Or, in my case, really not even thinking about it much.

But a potential trade of Yu Darvish to the Padres is certainly interesting, mostly because the Padres have a stocked farm system, are reportedly close to acquiring Blake Snell, apparently first in line for Ha-seong Kim, and yet reportedly still interested in Darvish. The article cites speculation that the Cubs might give up Willson Contreras or Victor Caratini as well, with early returns on Miguel Amaya looking very positive. I’m not sure that I agree with the logic, but Cubs Insider cites the Quintana trade arguing in support of the Cubs getting two from a list of Mackenzie Gore, CJ Abrams, Luis Patino and Robert Hassell. It’s not the 2017 trade deadline, after all. I’m also not sure about the Padres being excited about Contreras or Caratini when they have Luis Campusano waiting in the wings.

Whatever your disgust level is for the Cubs decision to go into austerity mode, if they’re going to do it, they need to do it right, and the Padres have the potential to pay up.

The central divisions (and Rays) continue to dump salary at an amazing pace.

That was quite wide off the mark.
