Trading for David Price: The Internet’s Proposals

We can publish lots of pieces saying who would be the best fit for David Price. But now it’s the internet’s turn! Most teams have been interested in the pitcher, and/or their fans have been begging for Price (mostly the latter). Here are some of the best examples I have found.

Colorado Rockies

Dexter Fowler just got dealt. Too bad. bookmark54 is an aspiring poet, good start, just needs a better finish.

San Francisco Giants

Two things Giants fans don’t want is to move Buster Posey or even think about moving Buster Posey.

Arizona Diamondbacks

If anyone cares, I loved the movie Devil’s Advocate.

Milwaukee Brewers

That’s not very nice!

Cincinnati Reds

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 6.31.12 PM

Better start buying scratch-offs.

Atlanta Braves

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 7.04.27 PM

Tizzy, my new favorite word.

Philadelphia Phillies

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 7.05.17 PM

I’ll let it speak on its own.

New York Mets

Would still never do this, but still lists pieces that he thinks can do it. Joe isn’t as optimistic. Not sure who Thor is and Wilmer Flores is a bat without a position…although at least he does exist.

Oakland Athletics

Los Angeles Dodgers

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 7.12.37 PM

That’s a start.

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 7.13.36 PM

Or just  go with money. Putupyourdukes is a future stock broker.

New York Yankees

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 7.14.50 PM

I’m laughing at this too.

Kansas City Royals

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 7.15.35 PM

He already knows it’s doomed to fail.

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 7.16.12 PM

Someone wants Christmas to come early.

Washington Nationals

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 7.17.01 PM

Well Carlos Rodon is still in college so he can’t be traded yet. Maybe he means Anthony Rendon? Not sure who Luis Giolito is, might be Lucas Giolito’s half-brother? Matt Skole is 24 and missed all of 2013 with a wrist injury, and considering the Nationals traded back for A.J. Cole from Oakland, I don’t think they trade him again.

Couldn’t find “Mid-prospect” in the minor league database–must be stuck in another country awaiting a visa. Matt Purke has fallen like an anvil in the minor leagues.

Cleveland Indians

Lee is C.C. Lee, a 27 year old reliever and Tommy John survivor who made his major league debut in 2013. Frazier is Clint Frazier, the Indians recent first round pick, draft picks can’t be traded until one year after they are traded. Yan Gomes is nice but not an everyday solution. Ignoring every problem, it looks like a pretty good deal.

St. Louis Cardinals

Los Angeles Angels

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 7.21.20 PM

Jarathen said it with such great confidence that he still isn’t sure what to think of it.

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 7.21.53 PM

Because trading for prospects in a weak system are still worth it.

Minnesota Twins

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 7.22.26 PM
Neither Eddie Rosario nor Max Kepler are top-rated prospects. If the Twins call dangling Chris Parmelee in regards to David Price, I laugh then see if they are still on the line and laugh again.

Chicago Cubs

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 7.23.16 PM

If only Reed Johnson was still a Cub, then this would be great!

Three-Team Trade! 

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 7.24.30 PM

When all else fails, go with the three-team trade.

Houston Astros

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 7.25.50 PM

Again, who doesn’t love three-team trades!

Pittsburgh Pirates

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 7.26.47 PM

Not bad, it’s actually the best offer of all these!
