    Possible Salary Dumps

    UPDATED:

    Here is a partial list of some possible salary dump players that may become available this trade deadline. I will start with the teams farthest behind
    in the wildcard races and those I feel may drop out soon. I also listed a few non salary dump players of possible interest with the idea that they could possibly be part of a deal that includes a salary dump player or two (i.e. Lowell being part of the Beckett deal).

    At this rate it will take you until end of the season to complete the list. Good work as always, Moon, too much time on your hands but not enough to warrant on your newest pe project.

    Re: Possible Salary Dumps

    Get me Michael Cuddyer before September 1st and the "big 3" healthy for the playoffs and the only team that I fear is of course the Phillies. I'm not sure any of these people are of any significance to the Sox other than Garza or Kuroda (as of posting this none of those players were on the list).

    2 more years of arb: they won't give him away.

    I don't see Houston being competitive for at least 2 more years, so in my mind, they should extend him or deal him, but it's hard to tell what management is thinking in Houston. Wandy Rodriguez is better than this year's numbers show.

    Re: Possible Salary Dumps

    There's a lot of commingling there.  I know you have some caveats there, but guys like Pence, Weiters, Kershaw, Gio, and others, can't be mentioned in the same breath as Carlos Lee.  He might be untradable.  He might not be able to find a team in contention that he can even start for.  Could he even make the RS or the NYY, even as a bench player.

    Just me, but I think it makes it confusing.  It's nice work, but if it were me, I might categorize the targets as A, B, or C, depending on their expense/talent ratio.

    Yes, it would be better, but I'm doing it a bit simpler. I am mentioning guys like Kershaw because they are top talent that I'd loveto see her in Boston and my thoughts are that perhaps some of these great guys could be gotten for less than their true worth, if us or someone else takes on salary dump players as a larger package. It depends on the other team's willingness to look longterm as well as other issues. I am not saying everyone on this list is a possible trade in the making: clearly almost all of the nonsalary dump players I am mentioning here will NOT BE DEALT.

    Freudian slip, Moon.

    Jake, Jed, Middlebrooks, Weiland, Reddick, and Ranaudo for Kemp and Kershaw. Sounds fair to me. Throw in Varitek and Wastefield, if it gets the job done.

    Re: Possible Salary Dumps

    Furcal has been terrible since being back from injury but I bet he is available on a very low cost basis going forward. The Dodgers would definitely pick up some of that salary. At the same time, Scutaro is a Plus 19.6 UZR/150 at SS so far this year and he is not tanking as a hitter. We could do worse.

    There's still enough money for longoria and the very team friendly contract. I would bet the rays are moved or contracted before longoria goes anywhere.

    If Longoria isn't the franchise player than nobody will ever be; of course Barry Bonds should have been Pittsburgh's franchise player but was not.

     Thinking about the competition for players, the Brewers have shown boldness year in and year out, along with the Phillies. The Yankees will be looking for a little help to shore up the pitching and defense, the Rangers, Tigers and White Sox will roll the dice too. Throw in the Braves, the Giants and possibly the Nationals to head up the buyers. The sellers are clearly the Cubs, Dodgers and Mets.

    Yes, "like Lowell was in the Beckett deal". My point is that we may be able to pick up a top nonsalary dump player from a team willing to rebuild for the longterm by taking on some of their salary dump players with the top player, even if they are known duds.

    Re: Possible Salary Dumps

    I would bet that if the Rays are not moved then Eva Longoria will be a salary assignment to a team with more than one season ticket holder. (softy)

    The insanity never ceases with this clown!

    Longoria will not be dealt. 2015-2016 remotely.

    Re: Possible Salary Dumps

    UPDATED LIST:
    Here's a few thoughts in red.

    Houston (-25)
    OF Carlos Lee: 
    11:$18.5M, 12:$18.5M
    LHP W. Rodriguez:
    11:$7M, 12:$10M, 13:$13M, 14:$13M club option ($2.5M buyout)
    RHP B. Myers: 11:$7M, 12:$11M, 13:$10M club option ($3M buyout)
    OF Hunter Pence: 11: $6.9M (won arb) plus 2 more arb years.

    I'd love to get Pence and Rodriguez, but don't think we have the pieces Houston may want. With new management, it's hard to tell what they are looking to do. I doubt they will look to scrap everything and look 3-4 years down the road. They will likely keep Pence and Wandy.

    Chicago Cubs (-18)
    OF A. Soriano: 11-14
    :$18M annually
    RHP C. Zambrano: 11:$17.875M, 12:$18M, 13:$19.25M vesting player option
    3B A. Ramirez: 11:$14.6M player option, 12:$16M club option ($2M buyout)
    OF K. Fukudome: 11:$13.5M
    RHP R. Dempster: 11:$13.5M, 12:$14M player option
    1B C. Pena: 11: $10M
    RHP M. Garza: 11: $5.95M plus 2 more arb years
    OF M. Byrd: 11:$5.5M, 12:$6.5M
    LHP J. Grabow: 11:$4.8M
    RHP C. Marmol:
    11:$3.2M, 12:$7M, 13:$9.8M
    LHP S. Marshall:
    11:$1.6M, 12:$3.1M

    This team is so overboard, it is hard to know where to start. You'd think they'd hold a firesale this July, but am not sure we can outbid others for Dempster or a lefty pen guy.

    Baltimore (-17.5)
    OF N. Markakis:  11
    :$10.25M, 12:$12M, 13:$15M, 14:$15M, 15:$17.5M club option ($2M buyout)
    2B B. Roberts: 11:$10M, 12:$10M, 13:$10M
    DH V. Guerrero: 11: $8M
    1B: D. Lee: 11 $7.25M
    LHP M. Gonzalez: 11: $6M
    SS JJ Hardy: 11: $5.85M
    (Update: recently extended to 3 years)
    3B M. Reynolds: 11:$5M, 12:$7.5M, 13:$11M club option ($0.5M buyout)
    RHP K. Uehara: 11: $3M plus '12 option.
    C M. Wieters: 11: $.452M plus 4 years of arb.

    There are several players here that Boston would love to have, but I don't see us coming close to prying Wieters, Hardy, Uehara, or Markakis from them.


    Kansas City (-17)
    RHP J. Soria:  11
    :$4M, 12:$6M club option, 13:$8M club option, 14:$8.75M club option ($0.75M
    1B B. Butler:
    11:$3M, 12:$8M, 13:$8M, 14:$8M, 15:$12.5M club option ($1M buyout)
    RF J. Francoeur: 11: 
    $2.5M, 12:$4M mutual option

    Francoeur could be an option for the Sox OF needs. He hits LHPs well. He could probably be had for cheap and would likely keep us under the cap.

    San Diego (-15.5)
    RHP Heath Bell: 11:
    $7.5M
    OF R. Ludwick: 11: $$6.775M 
    SS J. Bartlett: 11:$4M, 12:$5.5M, 12:$5.5M club option ($1.5M buyout)

    2B O. Hudson: 11:$4M, 12:$5.5M, 13:$8M club option ($2M buyout)
    RHP A. Harang: 11:$3.5M, 12:$5M mutual option ($0.5M buyout)
    RHP Tim Stauffer: 11: $1.075M plus 2 years of arb.
    RHP D. Moseley: 11: $0.9M plus 2 years of arb.
    RHP Chad Qualls: 11:$1.5M, 12:$6M club option ($1.05M buyout)
    RHP Mike Adams: 11: $2.535M plus 1 year of arb.

    Bell will likely be dealt, but probably to team in need of a quality closer. There's a few other interesting names on this list: Bartlett or one of their righty arms. It's hard to judge pitchers who pitch in SD. Their numbers are always better than what they truly are.
     
    Oakland (-15.5)
    OF D. DeJesus:
    OF Willingham: 11:
    $6M
    OF Crisp: 11: $5.75M
    LHP B. Fuentes:
    11:$5M, 12:$5M, 13:$6.5M club option ($0.5M buyout)
    RHP Balfour: 11:$3.75M, 12:$4M, 13:$4.5M club option ($0.35M buyout)
    LHP Gio Gonzalez: 11: $.42M plus 4 yearts of arb.
    RHP T. Cahill: 11:$0.5M, 12:$3.5M, 13:$5.5M, 14:$7.7M, 15:$12M, 16:$13M club option ($0.3M buyout), 17:$13.5M club option ($0.5M buyout)
    C K. Suzuki: 11
    :$3.4M, 12:$5M, 13:$6.45M, 14:$8.5M club option ($0.65M buyout)
    LHP C. Breslow: 11: $1.4M plus 2 years of arb.

    Theo has shown interest in DeJesus in the past. I'm not sure any of these 3 OF'ers would a big upgrade over Drew (if at all). They do have some arms that could be helpful, so maybe something could be worked out with the A's.

    Los Angeles Dodgers (-13)
    SS R. Furcal: 11
    :$12M, 12:$12M club option
    RHP H. Kuroda: 11: $12M
    OF A. Ethier: 11:$9.25M plus 1 arb year.
    LHP T. Lilly: 11:$7M, 12:$10.5M, 13:$12M
    RHP J. Broxton: 11:$7M
    OF M. Kemp: 11:$6.95M plus 1 arb year.
    RHP Billingsley: 11: $6.275, 12:$9M, 13:$11M, 14:$12M, 15:$14M club option ($3M buyout)
    RHP J. Garland:
    11:$5M, 12:$8M club option (guaranteed with 190 IP in 2011)
    RHP M. Guerrier: 11:$1.5M, 12:$3.75M, 13:$3.75M
    LHP C. Kershaw: 11: $.5M plus 3 years of arb.

    There's been talk of Kuroda or Kemp. I'd like to see Guerrier or maybe even Lily if the price is right.

    Seattle (-12)
    RF I. Suzuki: 11
    :$17M, 12:$17M
    RHP F. Hernandez:11:$10M, 12:$18.5M, 13:$19.5M, 14:$20M
    IF/OF Figgins: 11:$9M, 12:$9M, 13:$8M, 14:$9M vesting option
    SS Jack Wilson: 11:$5M
    RHP Aardsma: 11 $4.5M plus 1 year of arb.

    I doubt Suzuki or Felix can be had this July (or ever), but Wilson could be a nice fit.

    Florida (-10.5)
    SS H. Ramirez: 11
    :$11M, 12:$15M, 13:$15.5M, 14:$16M
    RHP J. Johnson: 11:$7.75M, 12:$13.75M, 13:$13.75M
    RHP J. Vazquez: 11: $7M
    RHP R. Nolasco: 11:$6M, 12:$9M, 13:$11.5M
    C John Buck:
    11:$4.5M, 12:$6M, 13:$6M
    RHP A. Sanchez: 11 $3.7M
    1B G. Sanchez: 11: $.431M plus 4 years of control/arb.
    OF L. Morrison: 11: $.414M plus 5 years of control/arb.
    RF M. Stanton: 11: $.416M plus 5 years of control/arb.
    RHP L. Nunez: 11: $3.65M plus 1 year of arb.
    RHP E. Mujica: 11: $.8M plus 2 years of arb.

    HanRam may be the sexiest name on this whole page and the Marlins have a lot of other talent we could use as well. If we could unload Scutaro on a third party, perhaps we could offer enough to the Marlins to get him. $15M for 2012 is a lot for them. HanRam could also be moved to the OF after this year to replace Drew.

    Minnesota (-12)
    C J. Mauer:  
    11-18: $23 million annually
    1B Morneau: 11:$14M, 12:$14M, 13:$14M
    RHP J. Nathan: 11:$11.25M, 12:$12.5M club option ($2M buyout)
    OF M. Cuddyer: 11:$10.5M club option
    RHP C. Pavano: 
    11:$8M, 12:$8.5M
    OF J. Kubel: 11
    :$5.25M
    RHP S. Baker: 11:$5M, 12:$6.5M, 13:$9.25M club option
    LHP G. Perkins: 11: $.7M plus 2 arb years.
    LHP F. Liriano: 11: $4.3M plus 1 arb.

    Cuddyer is a possible choice for a deal. I'd love to see a pitcher added to the deal, but Mn is pretty shrewd.

    Colorado (-10)
    1B Helton: 11
    :$19.1M, 12:$23M club option ($4.6M buyout)
    RHP A. Cook: 11:$9.25M, 12:$11M mutual option ($0.5M buyout)
    SS Tulowitzki: 11:$5.5M, 12:$8.25M, 13:$10M, 14:$16M, 15-19:$20M annually, 20:$14M, 21:$15M club option ($4M buyout)
    LHP De La Rosa:
    11:$9.5M, 12:$10M, 13:$11M player option ($1M buyout) which, if exercised by De La Rosa, gives club $11M club option for 2014
    RHP H. Street: 11:$7.3M, 12:$7.5M, 13:$9M player option (club may decline and pay $0.5M buyout)
    IF Mark Ellis: 11:$6M
    RHP Jimenez: 11:$2.8M, 12:$4.2M, 13:$5.75M club option ($1M buyout), 14:$8M club option ($1M buyout)

    Last year. I mentioned trying to get Tulo by taking on Helton's deal with it, but that idea is near impossible now.

    Washington (-9)
    OF J Werth:
