If traded, what prospect or package of players would you want for J.T.?

Recommended Posts

This has to be at least a semi-realistic package though, no Vlad Jr type of stupidity, I feel a package around Victor Robles or Forrest Whitley would be a realistic dream scenario. My ideal trade would be J.T. Realmuto/One of our controllable relievers/and maybe one of our under-developed OF prospects to the Nationals for OF Victor Robles and Carter Kieboom. This is a perfect trade for us infusing the num2 OF prospect in all the land and a top 6 SS  in Carter Kieboom. Even if they asked for a bit more I'd do it, I honestly feel J.T. and his contract wouldn't align with our rebuild properly. A deal around Forrest Whitley as well would be superb but I don't know as much about the Astros and their needs like the Nationals.

I think you can absolutely hold out for a teams best prospect when it comes to JT. He's athletic enough where he can stay behind the plate for a while and rest some at 1B- I'm sure he can play 3B in a pinch and he's somewhat affordable as far as resigning.

If a team can get him resigned, and I'd make that the nessesity on any deal- I'd push for Vladdy Jr and similar players.

Potential isn't the same as projected. JT is projected to remain a great catcher in terms of CS, CERA and defense. He's got pop and can hit / steal.

Theres only 4 or 5 great catchers and a dozen failed prospects every year.

Shoot for Vladdy types, settle for others if they can't resign him.

You have to acquire multiple "can't miss" guys and hope they don't end up like Maybin and Miller did.

That being said, I really hope he signs long-term.

Well that first line immediately ended my contribution.

Astros: P Forrest Whitley or OF Kyle Tucker, 1B Yordan Alvarez (Cuban), SP Cionel Perez (Cuban)

Braves: P Mike Soroka, P Touki Toussaint (local kid), C William Contreras

Rays: SS Wander Franco, 1B/P Brendan McKay, C Ronaldo Hernandez

Dont think the A’s would part with Luzardo, but he looks damn good. Robles seems too much like a Mike Hill, which scares me. None of the other teams in need of a C seem have the top tier prospects that excite me.
