San Diego wants Wil Myers out for financial freedom, the Red Sox would ask for prospects (pitching) since they would take half his contract. JBJ is a rental so his $11 Million really doesn’t affect them. Interesting move by Chaim (if it happens) and I like it.
The Red Sox are asking for Cal Quantrill that could be their 5th starter and Padres #5 prospect catcher Luis Campusano plus Wil Myers and half of his contract.
The Red Sox could acquire OF Wil Myers and prospects from the San Diego Padres by just eating half the salary, they would stay under the Luxury Tax Threshold.
Going from a Mookie-JBJ-Benintendi outfield to one with Wil Myers and Kevin Pillar in it is like trading in a Ferrari and getting back a tricycle. https://t.co/7nIaunoJWW
Trade talks between the #Padres and #RedSox surrounding Wil Myers are ongoing, according to @sdutKevinAcee
, with the @RedSox
interested in Cal Quantrill and prospects Luis Campusano & Gabriel Arias.
Here's a look at the @Padres
' top prospects: https://t.co/z72mEGzFCU
, the Red Sox and Padres are still discussing a possible Wil Myers trade.
That doesn't make much sense on the surface. But I tried to explain why Boston would do it here: https://t.co/P4z0eKMWcC
I'd take Wil Myers if the Padres send some legitimate prospects here, eat more than half of his deal, and the Red Sox give up nothing for him.
Otherwise I want no part of him. https://t.co/xUGxnjVpIn
#Padres OF Wil Myers will NOT be on the Opening Day Roster! Ron Fowler wants him Gone ASAP! #PadresTwitter

Senzel is mentioned in this article. The Padres apparently still want him.
Padres, Red Sox still talking about deal involving Wil Myers https://t.co/4hnTfhkzpS
Everyone who keeps saying Wil Myers is overrated clearly doesn't realize he's a 1B and not an OF which is what he'd be doing in Boston. All we have rn is Moreland he needs a backup or someone close to him as a player at least. Imagine that duo it'd be awesome. Myers younger too https://t.co/0tjxxSv56V
Wil Myers returns to All-Star form while Boston still stays under the tax and gets some pitching help. Verdugo, Downs, and Wong from LA. Cora exonerated and back next season. Boston gets Betts back at 35+/year. https://t.co/XqHeXo0lPd
AUDIO: OMF - Why are the Sox talking trade for OF Wil Myers? Sox not ripping Manfred or the Astros like rest of MLB 2-18-20 https://t.co/AJidNUYfZp
Did you read the article? Or did you just blindly retweet it? We’d get Wil Myers on a discount, add a controllable starting pitcher, and also get a prospect. Sox essentially would be buying pitching and prospects just for taking a flier on Wil Myers. It’s smart business.
They want the same Wil Myers who butchered Fenway Park centerfield during the playoffs, when he was with the Rays? They want him there over JBJ, who's a CF God? This is total idiocy.
Thoughts on Wil Myers (plus the prospects)
This trade is less to do with Wil Myers as much as it is the prospects you get in return
Who’s more likely to be on the Opening Day roster for the #Padres OF Wil Myers or SP MacKenize Gore?#padrestwitter
It’s all smoke with the latest Wil Myers trade talk. When the Padres make trades it’s not leaked to the public before it happens. For Example Pham and Grisham.
Theoretical question: let’s say the Padres are 10-15 games above .500 going into the TDL. Wil Myers is having a career year, and has been integral to the team’s playoff hopes. If the team is still wary of Wil’s contract, and wants to dump him, what should they do?
