Noah Syndergaard is heading to the Phillies despite what news outlets said just an hour ago. He will be with Marsh again.
This is a significant trade as it jettisons a rental for something. Mickey is an outfielder, so it now obvious who will be playing the OF now that Marsh is gone. Hopefully he can take on CF.
The other prospect is Jadiel Sanchez.
Sanchez is another OF, and one that is far younger than Mickey. Maybe HE is the CF of the future.
The trade deadline is now passed, but some more trades may be announced shortly as they are finalized. Altogether, if we see this as a 2 for 3, it is much easier to swallow, even though Marsh was my 3rd favorite current Angel.
However, considering Mickey’s not so stellar MLB performance, this may go down as one of the worst trade deadlines in recent years for the Angels.
Only time will tell.
The Angels definitely lost the most hair today with Thor and Marsh leaving
Where incompetent GM’s and farm system directors live.
💩 💩 💩 😢 😠
Perry is fucking terrible…….. 💩 💩 😠 😢
Perry gets a B+ grade for dumping $59M in salary obligations.
The players he acquired move the grade to a C.
The Padres are a small market team and their owner is committed to winning. It must be nice….
Go Pads. I’m excited to have a local team to be excited about
Ungggg. Mickey Moniak. Gross. I actually like Jadiel Sanchez though. Looked at everything I could find on him while @ lunch…. he could be really good….
“But durr Angels no derrvelper prospuurcts!”
It’s ok, I’m sure Jeremy Reed will fix Mickey.
??? From the Dick’s Sporting Goods he’ll be working at next year?
Watch, just to spite me Moniak’s gonna hit .400 next year.
Grady Fuson from Moneyball movie telling Billy Beane where he can stick his analytics BS…….LOL!!!
Jeremy gonna bump up that K rate from 28% to 58%!
Next year we’ll draft 20 DH’s to replace Ohtani
Sanchez has shuttled between rookie ball and low A for two seasons. He’s more of a project than prospect.
Thor and D-Cell were salary dumps
It looks like we didn’t have to pay any of Thor’s remaing salary
That’s good. What was it, like 7M left? Every little bit helps.
That only benefits the team if Arte invests that $7 million or so into next year’s team. Had we paid some of Thor’s salary we might’ve gotten a real prospect back not just AAA depth.
Yeah odds are its just paring down losses on 2022 and won’t be re-distributed forward.
It’s been discussed some on here. Attendance is down. Real attendance is probably WAY down. It was down last year with some games lost to Covid. 2020 was a total loss. This year also lost some games to the strike.
So many folks have wished Arte would lose money cause “that’ll show him”, and it will, but at least in the short term I think we’re gonna see some tightening of the wad…. then maybe even a sale to a huge corporate tight wad. Fun.
But maybe we’ll luck out and get sold to some secret drug dealer front owners like the Padres have.
But for now? Hurray, Arte’s getting his comeuppance! Enjoy Squid at short again next year…
Gah I wish the FO could just burn the whole roster down.
Arte investing in the 2023 roster. That’s some funny stuff, Jeff
I doubt Arte looks at the 2023 budget from that perspective.
More of a salary dump than anything. Kind of short sighted IMO.
We did get a guy drafted first overall at one point. Not bad for 3 mo the of a high cost mid rotation arm.
Mickey Moniak’s K% in AAA was 28%. He’ll fit right in. 101 Ks in 365 ABs.
We are working off the premise that strikeouts are better than hitting into a double play. 🙂
Thats because we still have residual PTSD left over from Grandpa.
Remember how we were supposed to retain Pujols for another 10 years as a coach or consultant after he retired? Lol
Honestly, Thor was never going to bring back anything decent. A rental and no longer a power pitcher. Moniak was just a toss in.
Tucker Davidson is the Braves #5 prospect
His MLB numbers are limited and have been just okay at best. His MILB numbers are good but he is 26 years old so it is time for him to move up from being a prospect.
The Braves farm is picked over due to promotions
Well, that was a whirlwind 3+ hours.
Two surprise trades and one expected trade.
The Braves pulled off a massive buzzer-beater just before the deadline, acquiring closer Raisel Iglesias from the Angels in exchange for pitching prospect Tucker Davidson and righty Jesse Chavez, reports Robert Murray of FanSided (Twitter link). Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic tweets that the Braves will pay the remainder of Iglesias’ contract — a four-year, $58MM deal that covers the 2022-25 seasons.
Iggy to the braves!
Looks like a simple salary dump. I’m cool wit it.
Getting money off the books that Arte wants to give to Ohtani
yeah i just saw that to. He’s gone.
Jesse Chavez comes back to SoCal lmao
Best looking pitcher in baseball, except for maybe Urias on the Dodgers.
I expect him to be good on a competitive team. Feels like he’s good when the juice is flowing, bad when its not a save situation or the team sucks and nothing matters.
A real pitching coach and system should help him regain his form.
Rooting for him.
So why was he traded here?
Less than a year after his massive extension. Lol.
Never cared for the extension to begin with, tbh. Dude gives up too many homers. Was his issue last season and this season.
People have very short memories around here; Raisel was excellent for us last season…
Never said he wasn’t. I just think he gives up too many long balls. Both with the Reds and with us. Just wasn’t a fan of giving him a 4yr deal.
still isn’t Josh Hader.
BULLPENS DON’T MATTER TO BAD TEAMS……….SHHHHH, WE’RE A BAD TEAM
Nobody is Josh Hader but Josh Hader.
He HR/9 was 1.4 last year and 1.3 this year. Not amazing but not terrible. Not even close to worst on the team.
Still he’s your closer and being paid the most in the pen, the numbers should be better.
How does he stack up for HR/9 vs the other MLB closers this year?
Of the closers who have more saves than Iggy, only Josh Hader (1.8 yikes!) and Liam Hendricks (1.26) have the same or higher HR/9 rate. So I guess Iggy is up there. Pagan, Trivino, and Sewald also have higher HR/9 rates but have fewer saves.
So in essence, it was Thor and Marsh for O’Hoppe, Moniak and Sanchez.
Are these two that we got for Thor better than a bucket of balls?
I guess the one disappointment that I had was Raisel’s name was out there but no trade materialized.
Maybe more interested parties in offseason. Or we keep our closer.
NVM he got traded to Atlanta!
We get Tucker Davidson and Jesse Chavez (again) and in return Atlanta takes the whole contract
Excellent. Best move of the day.
Ugh. Don’t like that. That’s an Arte move – cost cutting and sacrificing patience for a better return.
Oh it’s definitely so he has more money to offer Ohtani. Don’t think it will work though
Salary dump. It makes sense.
He was traded to the Braves
Feels like the Baretto trade. Former big hype prospect, probably meh.
At least we know we’re like a year away from Adell getting us a rental #3 pitcher.
Lol, when you put it like that…
In 124 innings in center this year he has a 1.000 fielding percentage but his batting is atrocious.
It’s a good deal for both. Don’t mind this return from Perry at all and actually makes me feel better if Moniak plays right now. We can afford giving Moniak ABs since the alternative is just as stinky.
Really? we better hope that Moniak finds an elixir. Cause Sanchez looks like just a throw in. he’s 21 year old outfielder at low A with a .286 OBP. Hell our system is burdened with a shit ton of these types of prospects. We Would have been better off just getting a couple of orders of cheese steaks to feed Perry and our fat ass coaches.
Moniak is a prospect? 😂😂😂
Kinda like Marsh is still a prospect
As much as Marsh has struggled, he’s still performed way better than Moniak has
So Thor and Marsh to the Phillies for Mickey Moniak, Jadiel Sanchez, and Logan O’Hoppe.
What does the trade evaluator say for this overall transaction?
Are ya sure you really want to know?
Not bad in my personal opinion.
Might be tough to calculate since Marsh and Thor have an established MLB stat line and of the other three, only one has limited MLB experience.
