    So I guess we'll all be on twitter all day tomorrow waiting for news regarding a potential 4-team (Dodgers, Reds, Cardinals and Indians), 15 player trade.

    Hmmmm.....this off season feels a lot like the last one. Lots of talk, but no dice. It looks like another season of bargain price hunting at trade deadline time.

    Heyman is reporting that the only holdup from the Dodgers acquiring Realmuto has been their unwillingness to trade Bellinger... LOL, the Marlins are nuts.

    The price for Realmuto is said to have dropped a little bit and now the Braves AND Reds are said to have jumped back in. This thing is going to continue to drag out, the Dodgers should consider moving on at this point.

    completely agree
    the mere fact they asked for cody shows how delusional they are
    get kluber, sign harper, and settle for a stopgap (like cervelli) behind the plate
    fuck the marlins, fuck mattingly, fuck miami

    • Said to be the growing belief within the Phillies FO is that they are not going to be landing Machado OR Harper. Bowden said this morning that he has heard that the Phillies have been ruled out, but yeah we will see on that one.
    • The Indians have been trying hard to move on from Edwin Encarnacion as they do not want to send back a contract and lessen the return on Kluber or Bauer. It is now believed that they will not much a pitcher until they figure out the situation with EE.
    • The Reds are also said to be in talks with numerous clubs to free up money. Rosenthal said that the rumored deal with the Dodgers in regards to Homer Bailey was a Kemp/Bailey contract swap much in line with last year's Braves deal. The Dodgers would be taking on more money, but their AAV hit would be $3M less. The Reds would be taking on less and having a higher AAV in which is not a problem. Rosenthal added that these talks have been broad in nature and the clubs have gone through MANY different scenarios.
    • Morosi making it sound like there has been progress in Realmuto talks and he could be moved in the "coming days".
    • J.A. Happ is going to the Yanks on a 3 yr deal. That is one of those moves that likely helps the Dodgers as the Yanks were one of the heaviest teams after Kluber.
    • Talks between the Yankees and Reds for Sonny Gray have heated up. They may be waiting to finish the Happ deal. Though the Reds are said to be going hard after Dallas Keuchel. Not sure if one would cancel out the other.

    If you can trade Stripling or Wood for Cervelli when you know you have Kukuchi in the bag it’s like getting a free catcher

    Just throwing this out there for fun, because we're bored and all of these deals have been discussed in some form.

    This is contingent on Edwin Encarnacion or Yonder Alonso being traded to open up 1B/DH for CLE

    To LA:
    Corey Kluber
    Scooter Gennett
    Homer Bailey (Owed $28M)

    To CIN:

    Yasiel Puig
    Alex Wood

    To CLE:

    Max Muncy or Jose Martinez
    Alex Verdugo
    (Insert prospect(s)) from CIN here)

    To STL:

    This is where I hit a wall.

    I don't know, I could see something weird around this general framework.

    Kikuchi is not close to being in the bag, imo. The Giants are said to be hot after him as are the M's and Padres. You need to look at clubs that may not already have a Japanese player present as there is an honor factor that many of these guys have. Especially for us, if Kikuchi comes to LA, he is likely booting out another Japanese star and he may not be comfortable doing that. Boras also said that he is still going to be meeting teams later this month.

    Morosi just said that Reds are looking at 2 scenarios with the Marlins.
    The first is that they would acquire Realmuto and move Tucker Barnhardt
    The other is that there is a team that they are talking to that really wants Realmuto and they could flip him in a separate deal. This could be us if we are not getting anywhere in talks, but it more than likely is the Mets, imo.
