So Cole walks, we extend George, and roll with JV, Greinke, LMG, Miley, WGAF for the next two years

Wow, we kept Whitley AND Tucked. I'm impressed.

The farm system is pretty much barren now but at least we kept the top two.



Very true.
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.

That's a decent hit to the system, but absolutely worth it if we win another title. When is Greinke a free agent?

True, but we now have a rock solid 1-4 and got some much needed bull pen help. Everyone expected it, but it's hard to foresee anyway we can re-sign Cole now.

I'm no good at this stuff. What's Greinke's contract situation?

I bet Arizona is paying at least 10 per year...... I hope.


As we all knew this puts the nail in the cole returns coffin

Wow. That was not cheap. Lunhow and Crane shot a lot of bullets.

Per Rosenthal:

Your 2019 leaders in WHIP:
1-Justin Verlander 0.81
2-Zack Greinke 0.94
5-Gerrit Cole 1.00

I love it! It's going to hurt giving up on Rojas and Beer, but I think Greinke is worth it.

Rojas and Beer were going to be blocked at the MLB level. We can always find a 1B in FA if Yuli breaks down.

JB hurts, but Martin is replaceable.

We stole this trade. Holy hell.

But we ain't paying all that

I think it was worth risk, but way too early to know this. Rojas is already 25 and blocked for a while so good we got something for him, but all of these players have a shot to be good.

I was gonna say that the Astros told the Rockets to "hold muh beer" but actually it looks like they told Arizona to hold it.

And y'all are forgetting Martin is out next year recovering from TJ

He wouldn't be back in the rotation until at least 2021

I'm loving my management if I'm on the current roster. They are doing what it takes to win it all.

Oh, I'm not complaining. You don't get a #1 for free and that why you load the gun in the first place.

Feels like we purged a lot of talent we didn't "need" which honestly has been overdue and getting needs in return.

Cleared logjams that were not going to help us.

So, we are looking at this now?

SP: JV, GC, Greinke, Miley and Sanchez
RP: Osuna, Pressley, Biagani, Harris, McHugh, Peacock, Devo and Smith

(I think Rondon gets released, Sneed and Urquidy get sent down. If Astros keep Rondon, I could see them sending Devo down to work on some things.)

INF: Yuli, Altuve, Correa, Bregs, Diaz
C: Chirinos, Machete
OF: Springer, Reddick, Brantley, Yordan, Marisnick
