    Grade the Gausman Deal

    I think it's probably possible to put a $ value on prospects. I'm not sure how that calculus works, though.

    Jonathan Villar- Our new 2B?

    Last time I saw him, he still had that huge mental block preventing him from throwing to 1B. One of the weirdest things in baseball lol...

    Opt Outs: Still No For Orioles?

    I'm not a huge fan of giving opt outs, but I can see how it may be necessary, on a case by case basis. For mega talents like Kershaw, it may just be a fact of life and a necessary sacrifice in order to get the top players on your roster. But obviously its a bit of a bad result for the team if the player can opt out, but the team can't do the same.

    2018 Milwaukee Brewers

    The real news here is the Wade Miley is rocking a 2.xx ERA!

    Statcast: Sprint Speed

    What do people think of Wilkerson? I kind of assumed he was just AAA filler, but I don't even really know how I arrived at that assumption lol

    Adam Jones- Where are the homeruns?

    I just really appreciate the dude. Kind of simultaneously awesome and sad to see him fighting til the end.

    Hurt or Injured?

    Is it being implied that this is directed at one specific player? If so, I'm drawing a blank ... Trumbo? Mullins?

    Luis Ortiz 2018

    Came here to see who was talking about Ortiz's start. Glad you posted this. Kind of encouraged by his numbers at AAA! Hopefully his stuff translates to MLB

    Tillman to Texas

    Yeah, true, and in a way, by earning non-lucrative salaries, the minor leaguers are just helping to bring down the average salary (and thus, relatively speaking, helping to push the MLBers into the top 1%).

    Tillman to Texas

    I wonder if I could increase my salary by hiring an agent. How do you think that would work out? When I refuse to perform work until I get a pay raise

    Tillman to Texas

    Just speculating, but it might be even more important if you're making league minimum, since it probably takes a bit of work for your agent to find your next job after you get DFA'd. If your Bryce Harper, why not just post an eBay link and let teams bid?

    Tillman to Texas

    Just saying, that was pretty obvious. For every 100 jobs out there, I can't think of many that are more lucrative the professional athlete.

    Tillman to Texas

    Strange "miracles" can happen though. Look at Rich Hill. For guys in Tillman's situation, its probably clear to him that he'll never dominate for a whole season, but I'll bet he's extremely motivated by the thought of getting a spot start somewhere and dominating it. Nothing wrong with that. Didn't Disney make a movie about some old guy throwing a perfect game?

    Grade the Gausman Deal

    Lol it's getting hard to keep "waiting and seeing" on this trade. However, at least I feel pretty good about the Manny, Schoop, and Britton trades. I can still sleep at night knowing we went 3/4

    Cobb & Cashner Clear Waivers

    Daniel Murphy cleared waivers and was then traded to the Cubs. Why didnt the Cubs just claim him in the first instance?
