Re: Maldonado to Astros for Tony Kemp

Ok.

He's not a bad hitter and can play multiple positions and is under team control awhile. I'd argue he's more valuable than Maldonado. I'm fine with it. Hopefully this means the end of descalso.

Basically the same trade. Got an unexciting middle reliever with a cheap option for the following year in exchange for a minor leaguer with a low ceiling/high floor. He'll likely replace Kintzler in next year's pen.

They kept saying "Dave Phelps, Dave Phelps"

We acquired David Phelps today for Tom Hatch. I like Hatch a lot, hoping for the best for him.

Phelps on the other hand is a guy I wanted a few years ago. Stuff seems to be playing well returning from TJS.

Re: Martin Maldonado to Cubs

Coolcoolcool The Cubs acquired catcher Martin Maldonado from the Royals just two weeks ago, though Chicago is already exploring the possibility of flipping Maldonado elsewhere, The Athletic’s Robert Murray reports (subscription required).

Sogard scratched. Apparently a trade is close. Hoping some other team takes the bait.

Re: Trade targets 2019

The Twins are getting Sergio Romo. Trade seems odd to me. Twins are getting Romo and a pitching prospect (Chris Vallimont) and a PTBNL in exchange for Lewin Diaz. Am I missing something? Is Diaz that good?

Mikie Mahtook pulled from the game in AAA, pair that with Castellanos' tearing the Tigers and the stadium a new one the other day and the deadline in a week and I guess we're on #hugwatch

Re: Trade targets 2019

I mean, I'd love to unload junk on Baltimore. Let's just offer Russell and some of our AAA arms for Givens and Villar and see what happens.

I don't get the intense love for Castellanos. He's an OK bat and a terrible fielder and he'd be a rental.

Well, in my opinion at least, he completely intentionally trucked Lucroy giving him a broken nose and a concussion.

Oh yeah, I forgot that was him. Never mind, then.

Re: Martin Maldonado to Cubs

I've thought about this trade more......and I'm still annoyed we sold so low on Monty for a backup catcher we could've had for $2 million in the offseason. I'm not questioning that Maldonado fits an important need, and is good to have with Willy on the IL. And I figured we'd be trading Monty anyway....
