Re: Regular Season Rumors

The Brewers using league-best defensive efficiency to take a rotation full of 5th starters to the top of the NL and then lighting it on fire to add a couple mediocre bats to their lineup sure is something. You and Duke are hilarious. Shaw is plus at 3B, obv too soon to tell at 2B but the Brewers va...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

I know we're kinda locked in to the roster we have but yeeeeeeesh, it has not been a good year of transactions for Theo and Co. I'm okay with we did, would've been nice to do more but think we made some solid moves. Smyly could be back soon too and always was kinda like a deadline addition we bough...

I hope all their pitchers arms fall off. Absolutely idiotic of them to not move anyone.

I have no idea what the hell they just did but I'm pretty sure it's going to be bad

I'm struggling to see the problem here.

In the offseason sure, in season it's kinda risky/dumb especially with KB's injury and Almora vs RHP.

Re: Regular Season Rumors

Neil Huntington is my favorite of all the hedge fund GMs. I don't like Archer much as a trade target anymore(certainly not with Happ involved), but getting him out of the AL East and into PNC National Forest will help, and I don't think he was gonna do much better for a couple toolboxes like Glasno...

Re: Cubs Trade for Brandon Kintzler

Kintzler has a $10 million team option next year and if it’s declined can exercise a $5 million player option, fwiw. So he’ll back next year, right? There’s pretty much no way Kintzler turns down the $5M player option, right? Don’t know if that makes the trade better or worse. If he pitches well/do...

Yeah they should’ve traded, Mikolas, Norris, Martinez, maybe even Carpenter

Re: Regular Season Rumors

The Orioles have a trade done, apparently. A Monty and prospect(s) for Gausman would interest me.

Re: Regular Season Rumors

Call me crazy but I don't hate trading for Harvey if the cost is minimal. I like the idea of acquiring a crapload of pitchers and hoping 3-4 of them work out. Strangely at the same time, I would love it if Harvey was the Brewers deadline move because I don't fear him at all. I feel the same way on ...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

I would feel okay if the Cubs opted to go dumpster diving for relief help on the waiver wire. I like Ziegler, but I don't think they have the farm to trade for a high level reliever and I don't foresee anyone on the 25 man getting moved until the offseason. When you see what these RPs are going for...

He’s made a mechanical change, he has like a .6 era for a few months now, gets like 80% GBs, And his velocity is up are the spark notes

Re: Regular Season Rumors

3 team trade...... Almora and prospects to Marlins, Realmuto to Nats, Bryce, Maybin and Ziegler to Cubs Then separate trade of Happ and Monty and prospects for DeGrom I really doubt the Marlins do that. They are supposedly asking for Robles and Kieboom already, two likely top 50 guys, and the Natio...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

There’s some really intriguing things about Ziegler on top of this, he has a crazy GB rate and has given up like 2 runs in his last ~30 appearances
