Re: Regular Season Rumors

You’d assume we are one of the teams asking about Gausman and Bundy with Britton. Yes on Gausman, no on Bundy for me. https://twitter.com/ken_rosenthal/status/1021149462750609410?s=21 Happ and Chatwood for Britton, Gausman, and a bunch of IFA money? Is that crazy? I think that’s about fair but idk ...

I’d be very in on Pressly if he’s available and be willing to pay a decent amount. Same with Adam Conley as a “under the radar” target.

Yeah agree. Throw in another guy to try and get the IFA money or even swap Ademan in for Short if it takes that.

I absolutely do that first deal and think it should be about fair value. No horsefeathering way do I do the Stroman deal.

Yeah something is going on there. It might be completely legal and they’ve “hacked” pitching in which case good for them, but it also might not be.

Re: Cubs acquire Jesse Chavez from Texas!

Yeah this seems plenty fine. At worst he seems to add depth over the weekend/this long stretch vs the horsefeathers AAA shuttle and at best he really works out as a bullpen guy or spot starter.

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).
