    (Almost) All Things Manny Machado....

    Especially if they package Britton with Manny, there could be a match. Waters, Toussaint, Allard, Fried, Riley (choose 4). Who says no?

    (Almost) All Things Manny Machado....

    For sure. That was my point, it's ridiculous to laugh at the potential of getting Devers. I'd be thrilled in a vacuum, but this team needs a lot of good young players, not one really ground young players imo.

    "Good ones."

    2018 Trade Deadline

    Three minor league pitchers to Royals going back. Curious how this will affect the relief market.
  6. Before yesterday, would you have said there were two with Scott and Chance? Or are you meh on Sisco right now?

    I would prefer quantity over quality, but it's not so ridiculous as to facilitate a laugh in my opinion.

    Not anything groundbreaking, but Fanrag hypothesizes that Machado would consider extending with the Cubs. https://twitter.com/JonHeyman/status/1008760847882227712 I still don't love what they would have to offer, but perhaps a deal centered around Baez and others (Alzolay who is now injured plus a few others). Still meh on the Cubs though and again, this appears to be Heyman speculation.

    O's claim Jace Peterson

    Peterson is fine with me. I would DFA Pedro, Rasmus, and even Gentry before Peterson.
  10. It's incredible that loss after loss piles up, and nothing. Just more nothing.

    10 to trade to jumpstart rebuild

    If they are keen on keeping Schoop, they should try to extend him now while he is struggling. 5 years 50ish range.

    Valencia should be cut

    Danny V is probably the third best hitter on the team this year, maybe second ahead of Jones. Good article by Roch.

    Is Chris Davis turning in the worst season in MLB history?

    This is where I am right now. It's truly remarkable. I mean, if he was OPS'ing in the mid .600s, we'd all be angry and saying he isn't worth his contract, etc. but this is just mystifying.

    What do we think of Dylan Bundy?

    Dylan is awesome. It's a shame we're wasting his young, controllable years on a terrible team. With 3.5 years left of control, I think he has a ton of trade value.
