I'd rather keep Happ unless Chatwood is going back too and they're picking up his contact, which would never happen. I hope the Minor Leaguers are fringy types...

That Rosenthal tweet is a fake.

Everyone can breathe a little easier now.

It's a fake Rosenthal so no trade for Archer.

Yeah, I was definitely slow on the draw on that one.

Remember when people wanted Wisler?

The Braves have acquired outfielder Adam Duvall from the Reds in exchange for a trio of players, all of whom have MLB experience. Cincinnati receives righties Lucas Sims and Matt Wisler along with outfielder Preston Tucker.


In other news, the Yanks traded Tyler Austin for Lance Lynn and the Red Sox got Ian Kinsler.

Kinsler and Pedroia don't get along, from their year together at ASU. This could be fun.

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

Pirates get Keone Kela for solid lefty pitching prospect Taylor Hearn (ranked 7th in the Pirates system per MLB) and a PTBNL.

I really doubt the Marlins do that. They are supposedly asking for Robles and Kieboom already, two likely top 50 guys, and the Nationals are balking, and I don't see how the Cubs can cover the prospect difference to justify it.

Wasn't it more Kinsler not liking Pedroia for taking his position than anything, or is there something else I'm forgetting?

I like the idea that the starter market is expensive, we already made a move and we hope that we can get at least 2-3 guys pitching well by the end of the season. So the next logical move is to stack the pen with guys and turn any playoff games into a bullpen fest.

Just using Ziegler as a placeholder here but if we acquire that pitcher we'd have

Morrow
Strop
Edwards
Cishek
Chavez
Ziegler
Montgomery
Rosario
Wilson

Lester/Hendricks/Quintana/Darvish as starters (in an ideal world)

That is a pen you can feel good about asking to pitch 4-5 innings a game. That pen is so stacked you have to debate dropping Rosario or Wilson in favor of Hamels if he is pitching well.

The idea would be Jeets and the fellas overvalue Almora like a good chunk of the fan base and he’s a “local guy.” Also could be a Nats prospect along with ours (not their top tier ones).

You'd drop Rosario. 100%.

Yeah. I'd love a better lefty on lefty guy than Rosario. though that's nitpicking (and maybe Smyly is that guy).

Regardless, that pen is good and deep. Joe can have a super quick hook and we shouldn't have to worry about burning them out.

After the last few days, I'd be ok totally overpaying for Doolittle. For a lot of reasons.
