The Astros have so many good prospects.

Would love to deal with them.

The Giles situation has to help us out a lot.

Dangle him around. Create a feeding frenzy.

Britton is the guy who could fix the Braves bullpen.

Agree, they need Britton.  I think he is close to back and I think the scouts have taken note of that power sinker the last 3 or 4 games.  The Astros are going to have to battle it out with the Mariners, and then maybe down the road have to square off with the Yankkes and or Boston.  They should be willing to pay for Britton .   Ask for Tucker and then maybe settle for Alvarez and other prospects.

 

Maybe we can expand the deal with Jones.  They maybe looking for a veteran outfielder

I would guess that if Britton becomes a hot commodity, that the Braves get outbid. (They can outbid anyone but don't think they will.)

This is why I am reluctant to trade Britton with Manny.

 

If the Phillies want to pay a lot, I am listening.  But I don't know if I love their prospects enough (if Sanchez and De Los Santos are off the table) to deal both of them in the same deal.

 

Britton to Houston and Manny elsewhere may be the best case scenario.

Just go to the Braves and get Allard, if not...Fried.

 

You don't need some value argument, just go get a pitcher you need.

I don't think Dan is really a player in this and lost any influence he had after 2014.

 

He's going to be the front because they need a front.

I'll give you Fried for Britton.

I’m hoping for Derek Fisher..May be expecting too much but the Astros have so much OF talent that he could be available.

Save by Zach helped by relay throw home from Schoops. His stock is probably as high as it will get. Time to move.

That would be sweet.  Tight Stros will try and pawn off Jake Marshinack and a broken down pitching prospect. Translation, garbage.

 

I hope some other teams step up and the Stros panic and we jam it to them after last year's offer.

Good target.

 

I think Fischer is certainly a fair price for Zach.  

 

He is the exact type player I want the Orioles to build with.  Fast athletic outfielder, who has shown the ability to get on base in the minors.

 

I think he is more of a corner out fielder, but that is fine.

Yeah and we would get one of the players back we gave the Stros for Bud Norris.  That wouild be ironic. Fischer was the no. 1 comp pick we traded with Hader.

I think Britton will end up in Cleveland.

I wonder what a realistic return on Britton is. I dont think its a current Top 100 prospect.
