Re: Almora, Edwards, Bass back, Rob Z, Bote down, Morrow DL

Figure out a way to get Britton/Gausmen package or Shields/Soria package before Monday so we have a real bullpen arm and a real starter Monday. https://media.giphy.com/media/wYyTHMm50f4Dm/giphy.gif Soria’s numbers the last 2 years are damn impressive and Shields is better than Tseng, Underwood, who...

horsefeathers like this is only going to get worse since one of the Yankees/Red Sox is getting WC 1. “Could the Winner of AL WC 1 beat the NL All-Star Team, my column.”

Re: Brad Hand & Adam Cimber to Cleveland for Francisco Mejía

I don’t think Hand was a realistic target for us, so I’m glad the Indians got this done now because they were definitely getting a RP(s) and should be out on the more reasonable targets for us (Yates, Britton, Conley, Barraclaugh, etc).

Going off this then, would something like Albertos for Tyson Ross and Kirby Yates be something people would be willing to do?

Absolutely I’d rather have Richard than Ross though

Done deal. Judging by the reaction, doesn’t seem like it’s a really severe package that LA had to give up? Russell, Happ, Schwarber, and Monty. LOL.
