Rumor: Beltran to Philly

The ROYALS would be silly not to take that offer. They won't get more than that. Gavin's one of the Top 5 pitching prospects in the game right now and Byrd's definitely got the ability to put up .280 15+ HR's and 20+ SB's in the next 2-3 years.

I wouldn't do that if I were the Phillies.

The Royals would want oo much fromt he A's... Players like Harden and sucurto would be in the trade... players that the A's have to keep for the playoffs and for the years to come.

I think KC would do it if itw ere Utley and Floyd...there is no need for Byrd here at all....he hasnt proven a ton in the bigs anyway when it coems to putting up consistent #s

Byrd = David Dejesus in my book....

but if we got Utley and Gavin, I think Baird should take it, heck KC could even throw in Desi Relaford and maybe get a lil more in return

While Beltran is valuable an Utley/Floyd for Beltran trade would be insane. No way in the world a team would give up that much, no matter how many scrub utility guys like Desi were thrown in.

unless KC somehow managed to pull off a sign and trade with beltran... I think if philly were guaranteed beltran for the next, oh... 5 years, they'd give up utley and floyd.

The Phillies have a good chance this year, and getting Beltran to replace Byrd might be the missing pice of the puzzle. As my preseason pick to win the World Series, this helps them solidify their spot atop the NL East once Florida collapses.

This trade makes a lot of sense from both teams' standpoints. These days if you've got a shot at the World Series you've got to go for it, even if it means trading away a prospect like a Floyd or a Hamels. Besides, the cardinal rule of young players is this: There Is No Such Thing As A Pitching Prospect. Having Beltran in the same lineup as Thome, Abreu and Burrell is frightening.

I assumed Hamels was an untouchable, perhaps the arm injury change that?

In a blockbuster 4 way deal between boston, arizona, seattle, kc

the diamondbacks trade the unit,mantei and prospects for beltran then boston trades lowe, williamson, and prospects to kc for the unit and mantei or just unit. Then arizona to say money trades luis gonzalez to seattle for moyer and prospects.

This would really stick it to the yankees as they cannot counter we another blokcbuster trade since the other top quality players wont go no where. :-D
