    While Mets and Pirates remain engaged, there’s still plenty of work to be done there. Latest Pitt ask said to be steep. Not sure he’s in the request but top SS prospect Ronny Mauricio interests Pitt. SD, maybe AZ and TEX could also be in play.

    "Beef" to the Nationals on minor league deal.

    If they want Mauricio, offer Perdomo and be done with it. Starling Marte is far more valuable to us than Perdomo will ever be.

    Hazen won’t deal Perdomo. Our middle infield after him is the weakest unit in the system.

    Carroll, Robinson and Perdomo are basically untouchable for any non-star player or a young talented player under control (Jazz/Gallen).

    Perdomo isn't going to be ready in 2021, so we are either re-signing Ahmed or bringing in another shortstop, anyway. So we will have plenty of time in the interim to restock the middle infield in our farm system. Better than going into a season with the likes of Valaika, Rojas, Vargas, Leyba and Young getting more than a collective 500 at-bats. I can see a difference of at least 10-15 games right there, which in a tight division could very well be the difference between a playoff spot and 4th place in the division.

    Hazen doesn’t think do-or-die like that. If anything he’ll get Jackie Bradley Jr for a fraction of what Starling Marte would fetch. Hazen wins trades.

    Well, I would take Bradley Jr. over the crap smorgasboard we have at 2B, but I don't like having yet another .230 hitter in the line-up who also isn't a threat to get on or steal bases.

    Not sure a star with 1 year to go before free agency like Mookie Betts makes perfect sense for Padres. But SD is clearly very interested and have heard among their superb pitching prospects they’d be more willing to trade Luis Patino than MacKenzie Gore. ⁦‪@dennistlin‬⁩ 1st on talks
