Mancini doesn’t strike me as a platoon candidate. He’s just fine against both types.

A player with his talent and number of years left under team control is the perfect fit for 30 teams.

The problem is moving the Myers contract.

If they traded Mancini and took back the Myers contract, just imagine the prospects SD would give up for that.  And they have the system to do it.

 

Alas, our stupid owners won't do it.

Yea I thought about that...but if they wouldn’t take the Cozart deal, they sure as hell aren’t taking the Myers deal.

I find it interesting that the author of this article makes it seem like moving that contract will be relatively easy.

Our owners are probably stupid but they’re also cheap. Lethal combo.

Also LOL if the Padres end up platooning Hosmer after giving him that deal

Wait, who thinks this thought even has the most remote merit?

 

What Jake Mastroianni wants to do is trade Mancini to the Padres to platoon with Eric Hosmer, and dump Myers.

 

He's falling in love with the thought.

 

SD is paying Hosmer 6/99 (including more the next 3 years than the Orioles are paying Davis.)

 

Myers had an .877 OPS versus LH pitching last year.

 

Mancini will cost something of consequence in trade and doesn't want to be a part time player.

 

So the angle here is you make both Hosmer (6/99) and Mancini unhappy, split their time, while giving up significant prospects and having to dump (include salary) Myers (3/61M).

 

1) Why would you want to irritate Hosmer at this point?  You knew he wasn't great against LHed pitching and you gave him 150M anyway.

 

2) If you were inclined to irritate Hosmer by making him a platoon player, why not just do it with Myers, who was playing 1B there before Hosmer.

 

3) Why would you pay prospects to get Mancini as a platoon player?

 

Also, who do you really want from SD?  Their top prospects are all pitchers and we're not going to be able to vet the pitching we already have.  I know we only want to add Talent, but at some point you have to actually commit to playing time.  You can't run everyone.

The most obvious trade fit is the Nationals and they could use Givens too.

 

The second tier is the... 

 

Twins: they let CJ Cron go and are reportedly the other team to offer Donaldson a 4-year deal with the goal of moving Sano over to 1B.  Like the Nationals, the twins could use some bullpen help so Givens and Fry could be a thing there.  They just signed Bailey and Wood....what could you have gotten for a Means, Cobb, Mancini, Givens, Fry package?

 

Rangers: really need a RHed bat to go along with a bevy of LHed bats.  Nunez would make sense there too.

 

Angels:  Could use a compliment to Ohtani and Pujols that could be a 1B/DH.  Nunez would make sense there too.

 

Blue Jays:  Given that they are going in a little on the pitching with their core kids just arriving, I still think Castellanous makes more sense than anyone, but they need to add a 1B/DH bat with some numbers to their lineup.
