ami Marlins regarding star catcherJ.T. Realmuto are "gaining momentum Jake Smolinski Jersey ," according toJon Paul Morosi of MLB.com (h/t Joe Frisaro).However, the Marlins are holding out for pitching prospect Sixto Sanchez, per that report:"A source told MLB.com on Wednesday that Sanchez is viewed as a 'must' to be included in a trade package for Realmuto.Earlier this week, the Phillies re-engaged with Miami regarding Realmuto. Miami, per sources, also is in talks with the Cincinnati Reds, San Diego Padres, Los Angeles Dodgers, Atlanta Braves and Tampa Bay Rays."Joel Sherman of the New York Post added:Joel Sherman Joelsherman1Hearing #Phillies are making strong inroads toward Realmuto. If it gets done Sixto Sanchez and Jorge Alfaro are said to be key pieces. Third pieces discussed include Mickey Moniak, Adam Haseley, Adonis Medina. Heard it is NOT at the finish line yet. Still working #MarlinsRealmuto, 27, was a National League All-Star in 2018 after hitting.277 with career highs in home runs (21), RBI (74) and runs (74). He's emerged as one of the better offensive catchers in baseball and would bolster the middle of the Phillies lineup.He would also potentially make the Phillies a more appealing destination for top free agents like Bryce Harper and Manny Machado. They have already have a core of Aaron Nola, Jake Arrieta,Jean Segura http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-khris-davis-jersey , Rhys Hoskins, and landed Realmuto in a trade would put them one superstar short of being legitimate World Series contenders.But should the Phillies give up Sanchez to get him?The 20-year-old right-handed pitcher is the Phillies' top prospect andMLB.com'sNo. 27 overall prospect. That site said "when healthy, Sanchez has perhaps the best combination of electric stuff and command of any pitcher in the minor leagues."In his minor league career, theDominican is15-12 with a 2.48 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 191 strikeoutsin 221.1 innings. Injuries have limited his overall appearances, but there's no questioning his upside, so moving him a trade would be a tough pill to swallow.Frisaro noted that the Marlins are also "eyeing several other Phillies prospects" and that it has "been speculated that catcherJorge Alfarocould be part of the deal because Miami would need a replacement for Realmuto." But for now, it appears that Sanchez is the sticking point. Harry How/Getty ImagesThe Los Angeles Dodgers entered the 2018 playoffs with the highest payroll of any National League postseason qualifier.The Milwaukee Brewers entered the 2018 playoffs with the lowest payroll of any National League postseason qualifier.After the Brewers shut out the Dodgers 4-0 on Monday in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, the boys in blue are at risk of another epic autumn collapse.Given the dinero disparity, no one outside of L.A. will pity them.If you go by Spotrac, the Dodgers paid $200 million for their roster and the Brew Crew paid $109 million (rounding up).Yet, despite the massive dollar differential, Los Angeles is teetering on the edge of an October calamity. So much money. So few results.Yes, L.A. has won six straight division titles and advanced to Game 7 of the World Series in 2017.Executive Andrew Friedman and company have constructed an annually relevant operation thanks to an effective drafting and development strategy, aggressive moves on the international market and the backing of deep-pocketed owners.That said, the Dodgers haven't hoisted a Commissioner's Trophy since 1988. Contending is fine Chad Pinder Jersey , but what is it worth if you're always the Brooklyn Bridegrooms and never the bride?The Dodgers dispatched the youthful Atlanta Braves in four games in the National League Division Series. Goliath won that round. Tip your slingshot.Through three games against Milwaukee, on the other hand, Los Angeles hasn't played like a powerhouse bound for confetti and champagne.On Monday, Dodgers hitters were frequently befuddled by the smoke-and-mirrors breaking-ball stylings of 30-year-old journeyman Jhoulys Chacin.Bill Shaikin BillShaikinDodgers tonight, by the numbers:0: Home runs0: Runs scored0: Hits with runners in scoring position10: AB with runners in scoring position14: Strikeouts.Final: Brewers 4, Dodgers 0. The Brewers are halfway to the World Series.Credit to Chacin, who has made previous stops with the Colorado Rockies, Arizona Diamondbacks, Braves, Los Angeles Angels and San Diego Padres. He arrived with his A-game at Chavez Ravine.Then again, he's precisely the type of hurler the high-priced Dodgers should attack with relish. The Brewers were a great story after defeating the Chicago Cubs in a one-game tiebreaker, winning the NL Central and besting the Rockies in the division series, but the knock against them was a lack of elite starting pitching.On Monday, they were entering a stretch of three games in three days on the road. This was L.A.'s chance to get to Milwaukee's bullpen鈥攚hich ranked second in the Senior Circuit with a 3.47 regular-season ERA鈥攁nd wear them out early.Instead, they shot blanks against Chacin and allowed him to chew precious innings while maintaining a zero on the scoreboard.That's not the way a title favorite behaves.Superstar and trade-deadline cavalry Manny Machado went 2-for-3 with a double. Overall, though http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-khris-davis-jersey , Los Angeles' bats were limp.Hyped, fireballing rookie Walker Buehler showed flashes of a future ace after getting an intro from none other than Ben Stein. When the dust settled, however, he was outdueled by Chacin.Buehler...Buehler?Kevork Djansezian/Getty ImagesThe Dodgers looked solid in spurts. Ultimately, they crumbled. It's becoming an all-too-familiar refrain.Add the continued, incongruous postseason mediocrity of Clayton Kershaw, and there's cause for sweaty-palmed hand-wringing in SoCal.Here's what Kershaw, one of the greatest pitchers of his generation and possibly all-time,told reportersafter the Dodgers' Game 7 loss to the Astros in the 2017 Fall Classic: "Maybe one of these days, I won't fail, we won't fail and we'll win one of these things."Maybe? Maybe isn't good enough. Windows don't stay open forever, even when you spend the gross domestic product of a small nation on payroll and face a small-market engine that could like Milwaukee.Another deep run won't suffice. Even another NL flag won't suffice. It's title or bust. After Game 3's goose egg against the Brewers, "bust" is the operative word.All statistics current as of Monday and courtesy of Baseball Reference.
