That's too much to pay for Trout.
If the Cubs are getting Mike Olt, CJ Edwards and Neil Ramirez for Garza then the Sox should offer Peavy for that.
Then flip Alex Rios and Addison Reed for prospects and keep Sale.
The Sox would have a strong rotation next year

No, no, no, no, no.


Oh, and no.


I heard a report on The Score the other day that Texas lost interest in Garza after looking at his medicals......

Believe me if the Angels offered Trout for Reed,Sale, and Rios the Sox would make that trade in a heartbeat. No explanation needed.

Sale is someone you build around, not use as a building block for a trade.

I agree. We have an ace starter, we have back of the rotation guys like Quintana. Now we need 2/3 starters like Danks and Peavy and a 4/5 like Floyd to be healthy and able. Now we need some guys in the field and high-priced hitting FAs who hit.

Of course. Trout is worth 2 Sales....at least.

In the words of the late Ed McMahon on any Carnac sketch on "The Tonight Show": "You are correct,sir."

Come on man. The Angels wouldn't trade Trout for our entire roster, minor league system, and the rights to build an amusement park in the plot our ballpark currently resides. He's the best young player in baseball, possibly in the last fifty years, and he's in year two of six making no money.

You realize Trout followed up one of, if not the best rookie season in baseball history by essentially duplicating his numbers thus far?

They wouldn't trade him for 5 A list prospects. They're not doing it for someone making money.

That rumor has been officially debunked by both sides. Texas pulled an offer that included Luke Jackson because they didn't feel anyone would beat their offer. They're playing the waiting game, but will probably have the best offer still when all is said and done.

From what I heard the Cubs pulled out of the Texas deal because of concerns about the prospect pitcher Ramirez.

On the score today they said both sides were contacted and said injury concerns had nothing to do with the offer falling apart.

Not. #1 starters are the most valuable currency in the game.

Are you out of your mind? Mike Trout is probably the most valuable commodity in all of baseball.
