Jose Quintana, Todd Frazier, and Tommy Kahnle for Alex Bregman.  Who says no to this spicy meatball?

Seems like just yesterday we were all bemoaning Clayton Kershaw's mediocrity (relative only to his normal level of awesomeness). Those were such sweet innocent times!

The next time someone tells you that Clayton Kershaw isn't the best pitcher in baseball, punch them in the face.

JD Martinez and Justin Wilson to Tampa Bay for Willy Adames.....realistic? fair? too one-sided?

Detroit can do better than that.

Martinez is the best bat on the market. Wilson might be the best reliever on the market. You're not getting them together for one prospect.

Your point on Yuli - Altuve didn't walk a lot at all either ... Until he learned to.  Yuli is on that same learning path, watch his at bats, he's being more selective and is just a good hitter. You'll see.

He's 33.

Not to quibble but Yuli's ISO is .192 and it's been trending north for almost two months... 23 2B in 72 games... that should play.

.170 in MLB career.
He's a perfectly useful bench piece on a winner or a starter on a team that isn't trying to maximize wins. If he's your starting 1B in October, though, you're at a disadvantage.

Alright, off to the orthopedist. Hopefully they'll say I can actually put my foot on the ground today.
Thanks for hanging out, everyone.
Trade Value series next week.
Should be a fun time!
