    Default Trade Rumor Central

    Thought maybe we could centralize any trade rumors being tossed around over the next few weeks into one thread in order to keep track and make it easy for everyone to locate. I have nothign to start it with, but wanted to get this going....Kipper, you know this is my kidna thing, just not sure how much i can add at this point, will try when I can.

    Per Olney

    •The Pirates are looking for an outfielder who can be a stable presence in their lineup. They have asked around for veteran outfielders (Twitter link).

    I hear Pence's name being brought up everywhere in link with the Pirates but I can't imagine we would get him.

    From my fav site this time of year:

    Hunter Pence will likely stay in Houston unless the Astros are “overwhelmed,” according to Olney.

    If they're going to get an outfielder, I would imagine it either be a guy like Pence, or a complete rental like Beltran.

    Given Pence's ability and contract, what would be enough of an offer to "overwhelm" the Astros?

    It would probably start with Marte and have to include one of the top pitching prospects just to begin with.

    I don't see Pence's contract status as an asset at this point. They do have two more years of control on him, but based on what he got through arbitration this year he's likely looking at $20 million+ for those last two years.

    He'll get a lot, but I don't think he'll get that much.

    Ryan Howard got $10 mil the year after he hit .268 with 47 homers and 136 RBIs. The year before that he had 58 homers, 149 RBIs and a .313 average.

    I'd put Pence around $8ish mil.

    Right now we have only two prospects on the top 50 list..at least according to Keith Law I think. Taillon included would probably get a Pence deal done along with a Marte. Other than something like that , don't look for anything to happen. The Pirates aren't doing that.
    The Astros wouldn't accept a guy like Lincoln along with Marte..at least I don't think they would. That is the most I would offer for Pence.

    Lots of talk in DC about Mark Madden for Kipper!

    Why is it, that if someone is a local, natiionally they always place the pirates (and the Pens too) as trying to acquire them?

    I probably wouldn't make that deal. I mean, Kipper is alright, but he's a little on the small side compared to Madden and ...

    I saw that too.

    I wonder if a rumor such as this, if the Pirates are looking at him, means that Meek isn't making it back this year.

    I mean I'm not sure why otherwise we'd get another righty in the pen.
