With Spring Training here, it is time to see how the players from the Kingdom of the Netherlands will do in the upcoming season.

Of course there is no crystal ball and it is still up in the air, but in general you can make a decent prediction based on the performance of previous years.

Andrelton Simmons, new shortstop of the Anaheim Angels (sorry, I refused to call them Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim), was acquired in a trade with the Braves  that sent Erick Aybar, Sean Newcomb, Chris Ellis and cash to the Braves.

Since the Braves are shedding salary and have two top prospects at the position of shortstop in the minors, they could make this move. One of the prospects is Simmons’ fellow countryman from Curacao, Ozainho Albies.

The Mariners, Padres are doing multiple trades trying to revamp their teams cosmetically.

The trade I like for both clubs the most is probably the John Ryan Murphy to the Twins for Aaron Hicks deal. Read the rest of this entry
