In the middle of a solid bounce back season, Miguel Cabrera was dealt to the Boston Red Sox today in exchange for two minor league prospects. Cabrera, 35, is hitting .259 with 11 home runs and (for some reason) is in the final year of his contract.
The move comes after 10 years with the Tigers where he made the World Series and won the Triple Crown award. He was the face of the franchise for years and one of the best deals made by former GM Dave Dombrowski when he poached Cabrera from the Marlins in 2008.

The Tigers acquired RHP Durbin Feltman 21-65-B has a 99 mph fastball that routinely reaches triple digits. The Tigers figures he'll be at the back end of the bullpen in the future.
LHSP ____ was also acquired. At AA he has a record of ____.

The Red Sox needed a RH bat who could play first base. Cabrera will likely DH as the Red Sox are in the middle of a playoff push and are hoping to boost their lineup as well as their clubhouse.

"We wanted to bring in a big bat but also a leader. Cabrera is both", said Dombrowski, now the Red Sox GM.

IRL - Nick Castellanos was dealt on July 31, 2019 to the Cubs for Alex Lange and Paul Richan.

https://www.si.com/mlb/2019/07/31/ni...e-chicago-cubs

Richan is a top 30 prospect in the Cubs system just like Lange but he is not in the game. So, I can either do the deal with Lange (in the game) and RHRP Carlos Ramirez 26-75-C
or do the deal with "Joe Random" and edit him to make him compliant with the actual prospect Richan.

Ramirez is making $53 k/yr for 4 more years. He is on the Cubs roster and has
8.1 IP with 10 K and a 1.08 ERA. I think that is the way to go.

A new idea: The Cubs have 3 LHSP but 0 LHRP. I'll add Blaine Hardy to the deal and get Ramirez + (?)

FINAL DEAL:

CUBS GET:
OF Castellanos 26-79-B .258 16 HR 56 RBI
LHRP Blaine Hardy 31-68-D 3.72 30 k 36 ip 17 BB


TIGERS GET:
SP Alex Lange 22-72-B (AAA) 9-6 2.49 110 K 130 IP 45 BB
RP Carlos Ramirez 26-75-C
LF Charcer Burks 22-62-C

Ramirez and Burks have 24 games combined in MLB this year. Ramirez is doing well with a 1.08 ERA in 8 IP while Burks is hitting .239 in 46 AB.

It is July 31 and I am out of it, of course. The question with each franchise is how fair to make the trades. Since I do 30 team control I have to make sure the other teams have a fair shake and that I'm not the only one getting better. I'd like to see usual doormats rise up.

This year, with Detroit, we are tying to find fits for several players. I'm trying to decide between trading my guys like SP Zimmermann, Ross, Moore for lower level guys, letting their contracts expire, or trading them for legit guys.

I've already let two opportunities go. The Phils needed a LHSP but instead of sending them Matt Moore who is 27-72-B and getting a lot of ridiculous offers for someone who is not exactly killing it, I sent them Alex Wood from the Reds, to help them get better. Rather then send the Twins a LHSP like Wood I sent them Bret Anderson from Oakland, a team that needs to get better. I'm trying to be fair.

However, the fact is that there aren't many top LHSP available so Moore is going to be in higher demand. If I decide to deal him I'll make sure it isn't a ridiculous deal.

I am going to look into deals for CP Greene, SP Fulmer, Utility Josh Harrison and OF Castellanos

Matt Moore


SP Fulmer 25-85-A - He is 7-7, 2.08 and has been fantastic, his 3 more years of arbitration is very attractive. There is no top landing spot for him right now. The Braves could pull off a deal but they don't NEED him. I could add players and throw in a LHRP like Hardy as well.
The TWINS need a SP.

The Draft is tomorrow and here are our big board for the 1st pick:

RF Ramon Valdez 18-65-80-2020 a RH bat with potential 70 power and 55/65 contact. An 80 fielder with 80 arm strength and well above average speed and stealing.

SP Angel Trevino 21-65-80-2020 Not a big strikeout guy but decent control and more of a changeup and slider guy. 80 stamina.

RP Alberto Dorta 18-60-80-2021 70 velo and 80 control, H/9 and break.

LHCP Miguel Cortes LH 18-65-80-2019 45 stamina is high for a CP but being LH he would likely be a set up guy for us. 80 K, H, HR, Break

LHCP Charles Sasaki 22-65-80-2020 75 veolo but 80 H, K, Break, HR 70 control

SP Henry Catnik 18-60-80-2021 80 stamina 70 velo, 65 control

LF Hans McRae 19-80-80-2019 80 contact and power, vision 75 discipline,speed. 20% accurate

CF Rodney Bartley 18-70-80-2019 25% accuracy. 70 hitter across the board 80 arm and glove

SS Pedro Cedeno 21-70-80-2019 40% accuracy 65 contact, 80 pwr, fld


1st Round:
We took Valdez and he is 69-93-A but unfortunately it's mostly defense and speed now. He is a 58-62 power right now. We considered Cotes but he ended up with Texas.

Best Pick: CHW SP Henry Catnik 18-63-98 he is
Worst Pick: MIL 2B George Mortero 20-60-72-C he would be a D if it wasn't for speed.

2nd ROUND:
SP Roger Molina 18-56-74-C A solid LH with high velo but low durability.

Best pick: MIN C Joe Smallwood 18-68-96-A If he gives anything with the bat it'll be a plus, he is a stud defensive C.
Worst Pick: CIN C Terrence Harms 22-55-78 no offense to speak of.

3rd Round:
RF Willy Sanchez 19-64-72-C a 71-74 contact with 77 durability and vision, 81 speed

Best Pick: MIN 2B/OF Tyler Howe 19-68-87-B 75 contact with 81 durability and 71 clutch
Worst Pick: MIL SP Brock Harp 22-58-74 No good attributes but stamina.

4th Round:
RP Fernandp Urbina 19-63-76-C his arm isn't going to wow anyone but he misses a ton of bats.

Best Pick:MIA LHSP Tyrell Brazell 19-65-88 could be the steal of the draft
Worst Pick: KC C Jermaine Cookston 22-57-70-C no offense

5th Round:
1B Eric Busby 22-62-73 a LH bat wo can play LF as a great eye and is 71-59 contact. Probably a DH eventually but could be a sleeper.

BEST PICK: CIN LF Hans McRae 19-73-77-C just a good hitter
WORST PICK: NYM C Sammy Miller 18-49-D bad.

6th Round:
