they had a good chance to sign him, and they didn't love Miller, and they get a draft pick

Wade Miley and a minor leaguer for Smith and Elias. Did the M's shoot themselves in the foot?

Not a terrible trade. Just a trade that I think is 55/45 in favor of the Red Sox
Aro will be a big-league reliever next year

If I recall the lead-up to the draft, Swanson was one of about half a dozen who could have gone first overall in what was projected as a weak draft class. Maybe AZ took him knowing he would look the best of the bunch once he was dressed up? Having "First Overall" attached is its own pedigree, in some ways.

You don't take someone first overall because you're thinking about dealing a few months later

I think it's clearly a boost to his value to have gone 1-1 and since it was a thinner draft maybe he's not a "true" 1-1, but Arizona saw something they loved, most of all, in June. Now it's December of the same year

How is the new car?

Since I got it, I've been on the other side of the country. Girlfriend says it's been great!
Dave's actual new car is better though.

will you ever stop using OPS in your articles?
Jeff Sullivan

Not as long as it's easy and what Baseball-Reference makes available in the Play Index

Assuming Heyward does go with the Cubs would they ship somebody out. Schwarber? Soler?
Jeff Sullivan
1:31
Very probably Soler is dealt next week

I've got a baby crawling on the sofa so I think it's time for me to shut this down
So thank you everybody for hanging out, and I'm sorry for what I didn't or couldn't address. We'll do it again next week at the same time, and until then, be well and have great days
1:33
Bye everybody!
