For failing to sign top overall pick Brady Aiken, the Houston Astros will get the 2nd pick in next year's draft on top of their regular pick.

speaking of, 82 year old d.jeter just stole 3rd off of him.
thought I was missing someone, thanks for catching it... edited the above post to fix it.
Maholm 109 ERA+ vs 113 ERA+
Dempster 182 ERA+ vs 86 ERA+
Garza 123 vs 95
Feldman 113 vs 96
Samardzija (not including today) 137 vs 117
Hammel 130 vs 56
Giants win appeal, game to be resumed tomorrow at 4pm with Cubs up 2-0 in 5th.
I obviously was wrong on my earlier assertion that it wouldn't get overturned, but it seems like the fair move.
Interesting that Alcantara stays in CF, Ride of the Valkaries is the 2B.
Not sure how much Mendy-Javy paired in Iowa but my thought was comfort from working together in the past.
Ah, flexible lineups. Everyone can move around except for Valbuena has got to be at 3B.
I know it can't be, but I like Mendy a lot better as a 2B and non lead off hitter.
His family probably doesn't live in Chicagoland? Hope he's back soon (and that all is well with his family!).
I'm guessing Feldman wasn't a world beater either.
castro out (family emergency, unknown) and baez moves over for a taste of SS.
Except for E-Jax of course.
Oddly enough. Had E-Jax gone to a pennant contender he probably would have outperformed. Clearly, he sucks without pressure.
Catch 22. Oxymoran (Cardinal reference?)
Regardless of whether he developed gap power or not, he's been a .283/.334/.420 hitter and been a valuable role player on both the Mets and the Giants. Not a world-beater, but nothing to spit at either.
You can't hope but hope to keep an offense like that down.
Yeah no kidding. I really wanted it to work out for Billy Beane ... seemed he deserved a win/win with the haul we got. Definitely fleeced Baltimore but they're doing okay. And Texas has nothing to show for our raiding their system.
Braves deals seem pretty fair but we'll see if vizcaino or carrot-top pan out.
But in retrospect NONE of those SP we dealt really gave their teams a good payoff. Cringe. I think their performances were heavily tied to nothing being on the line when pitching. Once the games matter it's a little harder to perform.
Except for E-Jax of course.
Ninja rocked by Mets today...
sure do hope Cubs are done deadline selling, at some points teams will wise up and stop buying the snake oil.
they won't, only grounds for suspension were if there was a "mechanical" failure with the tarp and there's nothing mechanical about the Cubs tarp. Giants got screwed.
