Trade market prices remain sky high

It seems not much has changed in the week since baseball Winter Meetings came to an end.

“I could add significant payroll,” Brian Cashman said in Dallas, “and give up some serious top-end talent that’s cheap and under control for a long time. Those things are possible, but they wouldn’t be smart or wise moves or business decisions for the future of this franchise.”

One popular subject of fantasy trade proposals is Gio Gonzalez, but the A’s are asking for the Yankees very best prospects in return, and the Yankees don’t have the high-end third baseman they’re reportedly seeking. It’s not only the Yankees being asked to pay a premium price. The A’s reportedly asked the Marlins for Mike Stanton even though it’s hard to imagine Stanton as so much as a starting point for negotiations.

Young pitching is the game’s highest commodity, and clearly Gonzalez is being treated that way.
