Best part of this..... No Tyler white






No Tyler.... I will not
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

Incredible we have a .400 hitter batting seventh....SEVENTH!!! That's where weak hitting short stops (ala Adam Everett) try to bunt/slap hit their way on base. My God it's beautiful.

If there is any justice we will sport the player of the month, pitcher of the month and back to back rookie of the month. MLB would have a cow if that happened.

I'd give my left nut to be able to listen in on a Luhnow/Hinch/Strom conversation about all these potential moves.

To be honest, I would have thought we would have gotten a lot more movement up to this point.

Do y'all think things really heat up tonight or is it all gonna pop off tomorrow?

I think Toronto screwed them all up. They took to little to early and now Buyers are offering less and Sellers are still wanting more. It will all be crazy tomorrow from 12-3

It would only happen if we wore pin stripes.

Devers probably gets AL player of the month. Would like to be wrong through.

Syndergaard is still scheduled to pitch tonight.

if he gets traded afterwards, his new team won't be able to start him until August 4th or 5th. New team won't like that

Devers does great against NL scrub pitching.

I'm getting pessimistic, tomorrow they will sell everyone to the Yankees for cheap

Yep. Although the AAA Mets team scratched their starter tonight. Not sure how close they are if they needed him

.350 9HR 32RBI 1.159 OPS

vs

.411 12HR 28 RBI 1.320 OPS

If Yuli doesn't get it then the award means nada.

I agree with you - Just saying I'm not getting my hopes up too high because of the East coast Red Sox factor.

I do think Yuli gets it, I'm just saying we shouldn't be surprised if he doesn't.

I think a starting arm is #1 priority, but what about a LHR? We currently don't have any on the lineup card. Is that something we can bring up when rosters expand so its not that big of an issue or do we need to acquire one before the deadline as well?

Im betting its Bauer (or hoping)

We've got a lot of irons in the fire. Lots of balls in the air. Lots of moving parts. I hope it doesn't backfire and we end up with nada.

There are a whole of teams in play still and not many so far out and with such a level of talent to make all this happen. Toronto pulled the trigger way too soon and got fleeced. I'm a little shocked that you haven't heard anything about Minor, Lynn, Pence and even Choo (assuming the Rangers would eat some of that contract). Atlanta needs a bat/OF pretty bad right now.

Not a big issue. We won a WS in 2017 without one (and no Sipp didn't count).

BP will be just fine. Bigger fish to fry

Call me crazy...but why doesn't Josh Rojas get as much love as Tucker? He has better significantly better numbers (.996 OPS vs. Tucker's .905; higher OBP, BA, and SLG as well). All I can think of is that he's a few years older than Tucker.


Because he's not as good of a prospect. He was pretty average last year after his promotion to AA. He's been killing it this year in both AA & AAA. But ultimately he's only had success in AAA for about 50 games.

Even Yordan was average for a time in minor league ball. It looks like this guy can really help out a team right now and is major league ready. His numbers over the last ten games definitely suggest his success isn't a fluke.

I wouldn't be surprised if he gets traded and then succeeds. When I look at numbers, he should easily be a headliner in a trade...but no one else seems to think that. Six years of team control from 25 to 31 right in his prime seems highly desirable to me.

Where do you see him helping out team right now?

His last 10 games is not enough to suggest it's not a fluke.

You could be right about him but it has absolutely 0 to do with his last 10 games.

Hell Tyler white won AL player of the week his first 10 games in the majors.

As a headliner to a deal instead of Tucker. It seems like all other teams are focused on is Tucker, but Rojas's numbers are much better than Tucker's....and that's with significant sample size (200+ at bats). A lot of teams (Mets, Orioles, DBacks, etc.) could use a guy like that.

Agree with the last 2 posters.

But I do like the kid. I posted about him a week or so ago. He's just a late bloomer and need to prove it longer until an opportunity opens up.

He is one of hate to see traded because he could be the heir apparent to fill in at 3rd when Correa walks and Bregman slides over

I'm in New York for the week and decided to hit up yankee stadium tonight for their game.

It's the DBags vs the DBacks
