    Wouldn’t want Houston to give up Tucker and Bukauskas for just Realmuto. I don’t relish the idea of trading Tucker but if they do it better be a one for one deal.

    Well the good news is last time O'Dowd came up with a proposal for Realmuto he had the Astros giving up Tucker and James.

    Glad to see the price is coming down.....

    Is JB a better prospect than James?

    No. James is weird. He's still technically a prospect, but there should not be doubt outside of health or freak loss of ability that James is a MLB player. He could be a reliever. He could be TOR SP. Through 27 innings against MLB hitters, MLB hitters are still trying to figure out how to hit him.

    Of note: James leads all rookies in fWAR projections among SP with 2.0.

    Guesses at which package gets it done:

    Dodgers: May, Smith, Santana, Gale
    Braves: Riley, Gohara, Allard, Flowers
    Astros: Alvarez, C Perez, C Martin, Stassi

    I personally would not give up Alvarez and Martin for Realmuto.

    Houston is probably lucky Miami is an NL team which slightly diminishes Alvarez’s value since there’s a fair chance he ends up needing to DH.

    I wouldn’t particularly like giving up that much for Realmuto either; all 3 of those packages are very steep. But I think one of those teams will end up giving in. If I am Luhnow, Whitley is completely untouchable, and I don’t give up Tucker, Alvarez, Martin, or James unless it’s for a superstar player with 3+ years of control. My ceiling for Realmuto would be a 4 player package built around Bukauskas, Cionel Perez, and Stassi. The 4th player could be a fringy big leaguer (Fisher, White, Kemp, Reed) or a lesser but still decent prospect (Abreu, Javier, Toro, Santana).
