Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Do you have a trash barrel at your house? If so, do the following:
- Stand right next to it
- open the cover
- position your body in such a way that your upper torso is IN the barrel
- get ready to take it HARD cuz you just got BENT OVER if you accept this deal?
Seriously, I can't believe you even posted this trade on the board for discussion. What- pray tell, do you see as the "upside" for you in this deal?

......... and to all of you "Experts" who think Santana has to start from scratch to create a "book" on all the new NL hitters he will face- what happened? Did the entire Mets catching contingent, pitching staff & pitching coach all leave the team?
NEWS FLASH: Catchers CALL the game! Pitchers throw WHAT & WHERE the catchers call. I believe the Mets retained their catchers, pitching coach & most of their pitchers.
It's not like Santana was pitching in the NL West and has to move to the AL East. This will be a LAY UP for him & his Wins will go up & his ERA will go down- make book on it !!
Don't give up Santana. Give up Beckett in exchange for a premier Closer- of which, Hoffman is NOT !!
He could probally make the trade with Beckett even though.
If there is no problems with Roberts during the yr with the mitchel reports.
Ortiz gets you some good BA & power stats.
Roberts gets you ave & SB's
Lowell is good but I think coming of a great rookie season, Braun should do better maybe.
Hoffman is getting up there in age.
Beckett is not a bad trade.
It's not a bad trade either if he counter traded Beckett instead of Johan.
Without seeing the rest of your team, I might question giving up Ortiz, but your pitching lineup is pretty well stacked and you could probably go out and get another bat if needed. Nice trade overall.

In this it looks like he was taking advantage of him.
He would be asking us if he had his doubts & rightfully so.
Hoffman is getting old but should do alright.
I think you can get say Joe Nathan & a descent player for Johan & one of your scrubs.
Say you can get Kinsler for second base & Joe Nathan for Johan & Polanco.
If he needs a pitcher he will probally do it.
Do your homework & see who can use a starter but has some good relievers.Maybe a descent player.
Not like Rollins etc but someone like Kinsler, Tulowitski etc.
That is not an interesting trade...that is a no brainer trade...you reject that and laugh at the person that sending you because your giving up 40 hrs in itself with Ortiz plus almost 20W withh santana for saves...not even close
Ortiz gets you over .300 BA a yr & his usuals.
Johan is the best pitcher. He SHOULD only get better in the NL. Pitching against pitchers his ERA should be even lower whip also.
Lowell is not even a bad player either.
