Smoke, mark my words.
What does this mean?
I am trying to figure out this lingo also.
I think he meant Justin Smoak
WE don't have a seasoned 1 b in the system. Smoak wold give us a pretty decent guy we could platoon with Gomez--or go with Gomez and try to trade for Goldschmidt. Goldie would probably mean: Doubie, Boggie, Gomez, Holt and Webster for Goldie, Kubel and a prospect.
I don't think Goldschmidt warrants a trade including Bogaerts. I would go with Morales and Brentz or Morales plus any two high-end prospects that are not the 4 B's.
I can understand not wanting to part w Boegarts; however, you would get laughed at offering this package. They dont want to trade their 25 yr old superstar. Your offer of a middle aged RP and non-ranked prospect certainly wont get their attention.
D'Arnaud is a much better prospect than Boegarts and it took him + another top prospect for 1 yr of a 38 yr old pitcher.
Goldschmidt is 25 and will make < 1M next year. You;d have to blow them out of the water.
Bogerts, Morales, and Brentz isnt even enough. Not saying I would offer this, just saying that if we did, they;d say no.
