I don't see what that has to do with Derwood going by the name Zip City.

Betances, Miller and Champman is a ridiculous 7/8/9. Those are 3 of the top 6 RP by fWAR last year. Glad he's out of the division/NL.

I guess Miller gets dealt to the Astros soon?

If it weren't for Chapman being a potential major slime ball, I wish we would have done that move for non top-100 minor leaguers.

honestly, I could have gotten over the slime ball thing. I would have made this trade in a second. And I would have hoped for a suspension.

What's the Cub equivalent to what the Yankees gave up? Having a Chapman/Strop/Rondon back end of the pen trio would have been mighty nice. Especially considering if Chapman more than likely weren't brought back a first or second round pick would be added for the 2017 draft.

Candelario, Johnson, and a couple of other boring pieces. Yankees got a coup, still jealous.

Reds pick up Tony Renda in the deal. Why?

Jesus, they must have hated Chapman in that clubhouse.

Yeah, they definitely need to bump that number up. You don't want to win too many games.

I wonder how having 1 of those 3 "start" a game would work out. Have 1 start the first inning, hypothetically facing 3 of the best hitters, then let the scheduled starter go in inning 2 and go until like the 6th with the other 2 able to close out the game.

That's.. An idea. I don't really see why it wouldn't be feasible outside of the starting pitchers not liking the disruption to their routines or whatnot.

4 minor leaguers?

4?
