@JeffPassan
The prospective deal that would send Blake Snell to San Diego would be centered around top pitching prospect Luis Patiño, sources tell ESPN. Also in the deal, as
@dennistlin
reported, would be catcher Francisco Mejia, pitcher Cole Wilcox and Blake Hunt, a young catcher.

Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports that the Padres and Rays have come to an agreement on a trade for Blake Snell.

The deal is pending a physical. Lin reports that Francisco Mejia, Luis Patino, Cole Wilcox and Blake Hunt would be heading to the Rays in the blockbuster deal. Rumors of Snell being available have run rampant since the start of the season, and with one of -- if not the -- best systems in baseball, the Padres were considered strong contenders to land the southpaw. The former Cy Young Award winner is owed $10.5 million in 2021, 12.5 million in 2022 and $16 million in 2023 after signing a five-year $50 million extension in the spring of 2019. This is obviously a huge get for San Diego, and Snell should pitch at or near the top of the rotation whenever the season is able to start.

Mejia going to TB in the deal may mean SD goes and gets Molina.

Tampa fans are not happy. They're calling for the owner to trade the team for being cheap.

Or they have concerns about Snell’s consistency going forward, and are selling relatively high.

I don’t know anything about the package they are getting back, but if they are getting a good return I think it is a shrewd deal.

It can be both. But considering the Rays history, I'd most certainly consider this a money move over a concern over Snell's longevity move.

Luis Patino is the big prospect they get back in the trade. Top 25 prospect.

The Rays can piss up a rope.

No reason to believe they’re hurting financially until they open the books and prove it
