Utah sale!
« on: February 27, 2019, 09:04:55 AM »
Well, time to finally tear this sucker down - lots of dudes for sale.

Really only interested in picks. For existing prospects I'd really only be interested in top-shelf types, and even then mainly at C, 1B (if insanely high potentials), SP or CL. Moreso interested in R/A/AA level prospects than 24-25-26 year olds near AAA, but won't rule them out. But yeah, picks is the name of the game. Please PM an actual offer, not a "What would you want" or "hey check out my team". Like give me something to work with  ;D

Also there are a slew of other guys who would be solid pieces on a contending team that I didn't bother to link - if someone isn't listed and they're over 27, they can be had. Bart Brown, Manny Hernandez, Jim Hamilton, Pat Hall, Jose Reyes, etc

Expect to give up at least 3 top shelf pieces for Segura, maybe more if multiple teams are interested (I think 4 teams did just at the deadline and he was on the block like 7 minutes). At least 2 for Joyce, Salazar or Gallegos.

SP Davey Williams - Just 28, can start or be a lockdown Stopper. 10.6 WAR over last 3 years. So far on the season he's 7-7, 2.16 ERA, 0.94 WHIP.
MR Hector Delgado - 2.99 career ERA, just 26 - might possibly be able to start down the line as he has 4 pitches. Hurt for 5 weeks, but was nice as a closer for us before going down. 10 Saves, 2.45 ERA, 1.06 WHIP - hurt but back in a week
SP Jay Peterson - 27, 20-game winner year before this one. 3.58 career ERA who was just bit randomly with wildness this last year despite 7 control. Good rebound candidate. Shook off the sophomore slump and has rebounded nicely. 8-4, 2.55 ERA, 0.90 WHIP

MR Tony Gross - Can possibly start too. 3.17 ERA career, just 29. 1.15 career WHIP. 3-0, 3.12 ERA, 1.10 WHIP

C Jeff Smith - Captain, 36 - hits LHP well and servicable vsR. 8 arm - Good for about 2.5 WAR if given 600 PA. Still on that WAR pace. Basically a solid vet C, Captain, who can hit to league average OPS.


3B/1B Artie Joyce - Stud vet bat. 24.8 WAR over last 4 years with a bunch of walks and 25ish HR. 33 y/o. Probably the best value on the block. Already at 3.1 WAR, 12 HR and a plus defender at 3B.

1B Ramon Santos - Righty masher, just 26, 3 WAR guy. Slow start, but mired with a .227 BABIP right now.
2B/LF/SS Bobby Bowen - Just 31, hits well as kind of my super-duper-sub. 3.3 WAR per year over 10 years, averaging 450 PA. Mashing to start the season, and still a capable SS. .323, 2.5 WAR and .845 OPS. Ideally probably a 2B.
OF Jaime Perez - Just 28, speed, D and walks are his game. 204 BB and 141 SB over last 2 seasons. Low average, killer D. .380 OBP to start the year with 25 SB. Error-free, rangy CF defense too
C Jose Contreras - 27 year old C I just have never really had a chance to play. Good arm
LF Armando Benitez - Struggled this past year, but solid ratings and long-time great producer. Just 32. Out for 4-5 weeks ,but was mashing before going down. .303/7 HR/24 RBI, .884 OPS and 1.5 WAR - back in 2 days now
RF Juan Segura - Probably the best hitter on any trade block in over a decade, maybe more. Just 27 and 9/6/10/10 vsR. Last 5 years averaging 34 HR and 107 BB while hitting .280. My bet is that he ends up in the HOF someday. Juan had a slow April but heated up in May (.881 OPS and 7 HR). STuck with a .231 BABIP currently which is dingin him a bit

Bump. Gallegos and Rivas gone. Still lots of good talent left, including a number of guys I wouldn't require a 1st rounder for. Also the jewel, Segura,

Once we see the pool, I'll post a clear-cut price (round-wise) for each, but feel free to jump the gun and get the deal done now. I have a pretty good idea what round I'd want (for the guys that would require less than a 1st) based off past drafts and the pool itself would be just to see how deep it is since I can't acquire another 1st rounder for the coming draft anyhow
