Stroman-level confusion on this one

Cleveland trading Bauer is nuts. They are 2 GB the Twins and lead the WC race. Thy play in the easiest division by far and are 19 games over .500. Arguably they have a better starting staff than NYY or BOS. Unloading Bauer makes no sense from a competition standpoint, especially as the teams wanting him are us and NYY. Why improve your competition?

Same reason they let Brantley walk and overhauled a roster that was a playoff team.

They're cutting budget and they don't wanna get stuck with his $20M post arb salary.

They're cheapskates.

I really hope/expect the astros to land Greinke. There are too few rumors about Greinke going anywhere, which makes me think a team is in serious talks with the Dbacks about him and blowing smoke elsewhere to deflect.

Up until this year there were 2 deadlines. The one now and one at the end of August. During August a player had to clear waivers to be traded and most players routinely were placed on waivers and everyone played nice and players cleared them. It facilitated trades. That's the extra part that no longer exists.

There were two deadlines then, one non-waiver deadline (July) and one waiver deadline (August). Verlander cleared waivers in August and was free to be traded.

Brantley and Alvarez all took that pitch. He called it a strike all 4 times.

I'm calling my shot. It's either Greinke or Ray and Kemp and Fisher are part of the deal.

Yes. I know. I brainfarted and wrote Rays instead of Dbacks in my post bc of the Robbie Ray trade talks with the Dbacks.

Left handed batters in both teams are less than enamored with the strike zone on the outside part of the plate.
