for $2M, it couldn't hurt.

Unless it doesn't get you an improvement then your wasting $2M. I'm fine on passing on Gio.

However, I don't think they're set a SP either as I think Luhnow will make a move for one at some time this year.

Whether it be one of the Indians guys, Stroman, or MadBum. I think he'll have something up his sleeve and with the logjam we're having on the farm something has to give.
I'm big time team Stroman as a add on to this rotation. He has 1 more year of arbitration next year and doesn't hit free agency until 2021.

Yes. I've been on that train for a couple years.

Imagine a playoff rotation of JV, Cole, Stroman with McHugh and Peacock in the pen with Rondon, Pressley, and Osuna

Imagine a 2020 rotation of JV, LMJ, Stroman, Whitley, Peacock.

Dfa'd by the Orioles. Surprising they took a chance on him.

I wasn't able to watch live, and I am watching on mute while reading along with the thread.

I legit lol'd hard enough at this to wake up my wife. She didn't think it was near as funny as I did.


Time to find a lawyer, then
LOL

She should find a lawyer because she watched the game live while I was passed out asleep due to work.

Does that mean they expect Dallas to just sign somewhere and lumped him in there or that he'll sign and actually be traded?

Just sign somewhere. They list the usual suspects as landing spots... Braves, Padres and Astros

Not sure. It says JV is the first Astros since JV to throw a clean first.

Maybe he's declined and I haven't noticed since I don't watch much west coast ball but his playoff history is love to have.

lots of flyballs for the Twins.

Marwin just 11 for 63 to start the season

just depends on how much the Giants would want for a 2 or 3-month rental

I thought Stewart was supposed to have a better fastball. Throwing in the 90-92 mph range. Hitters like that
mwm

We will all remember those streaks where we would be ready to DFA Marwin. Then, all of a sudden, he'd go on a hot streak and literally carry the team for 7-10 days.

I'm hoping he saves the hot streak for their next series.

When I was a kid, I watched every White Sox game and felt like I couldn't miss Frank Thomas ABs. I'm starting to feel that way about each of our top 5 order guys.

Trying to make sure I enjoy every minute of watching this offense.
