    So cost is irrelevant? Pretty asinine thinking there. Beware of premature ej's.

    Not saying I want him, but perhaps since he stated he'd like to resign helps. He's older and might not want switch lifestyles again.

    Also, consider it took the greatest market for him to not resign last time.

    I still remember being stoned off my ass listening to Arnie Spanier on 610 the midnight he announced the Randy Johnson trade. My buddy called me about 30 seconds later and said "we're going to the ****ing World Series!!!"

    Not a fan of trading for Beltran. Unless we can get him cheap. Too old to give up any noticeable prospects and isn't he a FA next year?

    That lineup could potentially mash.....enough to where I'm only mildly infuriated seeing Gomez and Gattis together in there.

    With a Beltran trade i think

    CF Springer
    3B Bregman
    2B Altuve
    SS Correa
    RF Beltran
    DH Gurriel
    1B Valbuena
    LF (Red Hot) Rasmus or Marisnick
    C Castro

    Great D throughout and a 1-8 with potential too be a 'murderers row'

    Bench: Gattis, Gonzalez, Rasmus/Marisnick

    Tucker, Reed, White, Stassi, Moran should be Sept. Call ups with a shot at earning a 13th position player spot.

    Please move Gomez, Neshek, Fister/Feldman. Like the return the pitching would nab

    Expectation: Houston gets Beltran and a middling starting pitcher while the Rangers get Sale and Lucroy. :(

    Hope: Sale or Archer, Lucroy or Norris, and either David Robertson or Jake McGee

    That would suck. Astros wouldn't see a division title until 2020, at the earliest

    @Joelsherman1My stealth team today: #Astros. I think they get a SP and are involved in anything big that pops up.

    Nothing earth shattering, but I'm hopeful.

    How are the rangers getting both Sale and Lucroy? Think they're gutting the farm and also dealing Profar, Gallo, Mazara?

    I don't think the Rangers will land Sale. If anyone does it, I think it's Houston

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Luhnow take a flyer on Rich Hill. Upside is huge for the rest of the year (sporting a 2.25 ERA before sidelined with a blister). Depends on what Oakland is asking for. Wouldn't give up any top 100 prospects for Hill, but not against sending some of our fringe prospects.

    I'm curious to see what it takes to land Sale, Archer, or Lucroy.

    Anybody have a good idea of what it would take from us to get each individually?

    I see us landing Archer or Lucroy today. Maybe both but thats a stretch.

    Which prospects, if any do we ship out today? I need some ideas to toy with on this day of constant F5ing

    Red Sox, Dodgers, Yankees, Rangers, Padres, Braves, and Astros are the teams thT have farms deep enough to do pretty much whatever they want. Hypotheticals in which Rangers get both Sale and Lucroy:

    White Sox get:
    Brinson
    DeShields
    Profar
    Mendez
    Tate

    Brewers get:
    Gallo
    Ortiz
    Ibanez

    Just the same, Houston could also get both if willing:

    White Sox get:
    Reed
    Martes
    Tucker
    Musgrove
    Teoscar

    Brewers get:
    Paulino
    Singleton
    Moran
    Fisher

    He is - but Beltran would be a tremendous addition to this team. Not only is there a full-circle feel to it but his bat in the middle of this line-up is sorely needed.

    If they added Beltran + TOR pitcher, I think this team has a chance to play deep into October. Two big IFs though...

    I suppose those are feasible. I just don't see the Rangers gutting themselves entirely like that. I also think Mazara would be forced into a deal, which would end up killing it for the Rangers.
