    Beckham is the kind of player JimBo used to have a fetish for (hype>>>performance).
    I do not even think there is hype with him anymore. Been a couple seasons since he has been on any top 100 prospect lists. He is a 23 year old with bad k rates in minors. Will be lucky to carve out a career as a utility guy probably.

    My guess, a minor league arm with upside who doesn't need to be put on the 40 man yet.

    If it's a three team deal, it's hard to predict who is going where. Hanigan may be a smaller piece in a larger deal.

    Rays To Acquire Ryan Hanigan

    By Zach Links [December 3 at 11:38am CST]

    The Reds are trading catcher Ryan Hanigan to the Rays, sources tell Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports (Twitter link). The swap could be a three-way deal.

    It was expected that Cincinnati would move Hanigan since they agreed to a two-year deal with Brayan Pena. The 33-year-old had the worst season of his career in 2013, batting just .198/.306/.261 and tying a career-low with two home runs. MLBTR contributor Matt Swartz projects Hanigan to earn $2.3MM through arbitration this offseason, which won't break the bank for the cost-conscious Rays.

    Hanigan will give the Rays three catchers with Jose Lobaton and Jose Molina already in the fold. Molina is staying in Tampa Bay after agreeing to come back on a two-year, $4.5MM deal last month.

    Hanigan has long been known as a patient hitter that is tough to strike out, as evidenced by a career 12 percent walk rate and 10.1 percent strikeout rate. He also has a reputation as a solid defensive backstop, having led the league in caught-stealing percentage in 2013 (45 percent) and 2012 (48 percent).

    He lacks the power, speed or glove to be truly interesting. He's got a low ceiling. I'd prefer a kid who offered more in the way of potential impact.

    Will Carroll just put it out that he is hearing that Oakland is involved in a three way deal.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Coco Crisp maybe? The A's could be looking to shed payroll with their recent Jim Johnson/Scott Kazmir signings.

    Brett Anderson was available... Or so I read. But that doesn't seem to jive with Ryan Hanigan.

    Buster Olney: Ryan Hanigan will get multi-year deal as part of this trade to the Rays...
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Oakland and Tampa are two of the smartest/best ran orgs in baseball - anyone else think Uncle Walt is about to be taken behind the woodshed?
