r.renteria up next after the commercial break on MLB Network live if anyone's close to a TV.
see whatthe final deal is, but Santiago's walk rates are pretty worrisome, Eaton looks like a legit lead-off type.
h.kendrick to Sox supposedly in play in this trade...that changes the "who's giving up the prospects" part up a bit.
unless the sox are giving up the prospects i'd rather than a.eaton over h.santiago...
bats should be big this offseason. next year's FA market is pitching-heavy (pending extensions) and very bats-bare (and should get worse with extensions in the coming season). the OF market is really bare.
hanley ramirez, chase headley, and pablo sandavol are the batting "stars" of the 2015 FA market who aren't going to be 35+ years old...and it's expected that h.ramirez will be off the table pretty soon...and the 35+ year old crowd doesn't contain anyone to be too excited about.
Sox got pants'd
Skaggs about to be off the table...3-way trade nearing completion.
DBacks: Trumbo & 2 prospects
White Sox: A. Eaton
Angels: Skaggs & H. Santiago
maybe DBacks getting 2 really good prospects to ship for Samardzija, but I doubt it.
Pretty epic animation, Tim. That was almost feature-film length (slight exaggeration).
That's a few weeks old btw, think it was posted on here when it first came out...not necessarily reflective of what may happen this week. It also has Ha as a left-handed hitter.
She's from Wisco. Probably a Brewer fan.
Baseball America Rule 5 Preview has lots of Cubs in it.
And this morning...
The Phillies have indicated to other teams they are ready and willing to talk about Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels in trades.
Another pitcher on the market.
FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Indians are listening to trade offers for Justin Masterson.
It would be awesome if there were some rumors of the Cubs looking for something other than RPs.
Outside execs say Wittenmyer's writing has its problems, hole in head that might not get kind rumors #Cubsfans want.
d.brown's swing can get sloppy and long...he loves going for outside stuff, especially high.
he couldn't make up his mind whether he was a pull hitter or a reacher in a kinda erratic fashion last season. when he hit a lot of homers up and in the outer part of the zone last may, he spent a few months going back/forth biting at stuff outside the zone trying to replicate may.
his K rate doesn't mean much...quality of contact is in play.
I think theo and friends have a plan. I don't think the ownership group is going to have the chops to participate as a top 3 market team, and I also hope I'm wrong about that.
