Do you find Trade Deadline Day or the Winter Meetings more exciting?
Travis Sawchik
3:36
I suppose the deadline day since the activity is packed into a more concentrated time ... but no ridiculous FA signings

What's a comparable package from the Dodgers to what the Yankees ended up giving the A's? Would Calhoun, Diaz, & lower tier pitching prospect been enough?
Travis Sawchik
3:36
According to some midseason rankings that might have been a better, at least a similar, return

Any chance the Brewers could come in and say "WAIT!" and throw in Brinson for Gray? Or is it already too official?
Travis Sawchik
3:37
I think it's too late. And I think the Brewers are better off keeping Brinson

Onto trade news that nobody cares about, Jays sending Joe Smith to the Indians in exchange for two low-level prospects. Angels on the verge of trading David Hernández. Detroit and Arizona discussing Jose Iglesias.

Kind of 'Meh' trade deadline
But there's still time ...

If Darvish doesn't move then it's a pretty bad look for the Ranger's FO right
Travis Sawchik
3:39
Not a great look .... Comp pick return is not great if he's not moved and not resigned

Tony Watson-->Dodgers, guessing that takes them out of the Hand sweepstakes
Travis Sawchik
3:40
We have a trade!
3:41
Watson's performance, overall, this year hasn't been great
16.8 % K rate, 43% GB rate, 4.61 xFIP
He's not what he was a couple years back ... but maybe he can help more situationally
3:42
One of the great people in the game, though

All of the Sudden, Gray, Tanaka (last 9 Starts, 3.43 in 57.2 inn, 74Ks, 9 walks and 48 hits), Severino, Jaimie Garcia, Montgomerry and CC Sabathia, yankees have a pretty darn good rotation and that Bullpen! Hmmmmmm
Travis Sawchik

Yankees are going to win the East
I think

NYY get Darvish for international bonus money : ) ?
Travis Sawchik
3:42
Ha
Man, I kind of want to see that

Somewhat off topic, but how bad is replacement level pitching these days? Liriano has thrown 80+ innings of 4.72 FIP, yet is worth 0.8 WAR. Yunel Escobar, a league average hitter with average defense at 3B, has been worth the exact same in 364 PA. How does that make sense?
Travis Sawchik
3:43
I suppose it's pretty awful
3:44
But the Liriano trade is interesting for me because he is apparently going to be used as a reliever
I just wrote up that trade for the Site
He has a 27% K-BB against lefties this year ... a 4.8% mark (LOL) against righties
3:45
The only thing Liriano has consistently and effectively done in his career is take care of left-handed hitters so I kind of like this for the Astros

Does Smith going to CLE make them a non player on Britton?
Travis Sawchik
3:45
CLE could still use a lefty reliever with Logan out of the season
confused

Can you please recap all trades today so far?

Orioles need to start the rebuild now, next year might be too late. That team might be unwatchable if Machado leaves in free agency next year.
Travis Sawchik
3:46
Yeah, I thought Orioles should have blown it up already
Orioles are going to face a rebuild whether they like it or not
and better to trade assets a year too early than too late
