Who won the Giants Brewers trade?
Eric A Longenhagen
3:05
Which aren't exactly jumping off points for interesting analysis.
Scuba Steve

Can you tell me a bit about Nimmo? Line drive, high OBP kind of guy?
Bezel
3:05
Is Miller going to close in Cleveland?
Eric A Longenhagen
3:05
Some average tools but poor baseball instincts and overall not an explosive athlete.
Jackie
3:06
Would you prefer Espinoza or Holmes/Montas/Cotton

Both guys (Miller/Allen) have always been totally non-committal when it comes to roles, and so is Tito. My guess, though, since neither has any platoon splits, is that Miller gets the 9th/higher-leverage spots
Though wouldn't surprise me to see Tito bring him in for the 8th with lefties up and give Allen the 9th

Easy for me to say Espinoza because I love upside but, if you want to mitigate risk by spreading things out over a larger sample of prospects and prefer the Dodgers package, I get that.

So Hellickson's suitors are the Tigers and....?

Blue Jays

Wouldn't Pomeranz's value be higher an hour before the deadline? Confusing why the Padres would trade an asset a full month ahead of the deadline?
august fagerstrom
3:10
They're probably happy with what they got
3:11
Not like Pomeranz couldn't have broken over the last month
They had an offer they liked, so they took it

Btw August: Saw Radiohead in NYC both nights last week. OMFG they're awesome.

the best

Love to get your best guess, absolute surprise under the radar MAJOR acquisition to happen in the next hour. Like Chris Sale to DC...
august fagerstrom
3:11
Puig to somebody
Drew
3:12
Kemp wrote an article today saying how pumped he is to be in Atlanta, a team he cheered for as a kid.. Can Kemp get back to MVP play or even close to it?
august fagerstrom
3:12
lol
no
Richie
3:13
How long until Astros have to move someone with crowded infield? Next hour, or this winter?
august fagerstrom
3:13
These things tend to work themselves out.
Having too many good players isn't exactly a problem
Dan Duquette
3:13
Damnit, was the deadline today?
august fagerstrom
3:13
No worries! You got Wade Miley!
Elton
3:13
I don't understand the Mets trade for Bruce. Don't they have Legares and four corner outfielders now?
august fagerstrom
3:13
yep
Drew
3:14
do either of you have anything positive to say about the braves? Teheran is average. Kemp sucks.. anything positive at all? for god sakes
august fagerstrom
3:14
You say that like it's a hot take that Matt Kemp sucks
Eric A Longenhagen
3:14
I've considered going to Florida for instrux specifically to sit in Orlando for several days and see their guys because the system is so good. Do you feel better?
Billy Heywood
3:15
The key is platoon splits. Before the trade, the Mets had a lefty hitting, poor defensive right fielder. Now they have Jay Bruce!
august fagerstrom
3:15
excellent point
Scott
3:15
I'm sorry that my fellow Braves fans have a tendency to be a bit dramatic. We're just not used to being this bad.
august fagerstrom
3:15
shouldn't be for long~
squiggly supposed to be an exclamation point
M&M
