I saw something on MLB network that said someone else was in the trade not Rojas

Ok, so logistically, who moves to make room?

Maldanado spot is opened up by trading Stassi
Grienke spot is opened by optioning Urkeeding
Biagini for Devo?
Sanchez for ???

What happens when Peacock comes back?
Sneed will get sent down. After that it gets interesting. If they wanted to carry 13 pitchers Straw could get sent down.

I like the way the Greinke/Sanchez moves work for future commitments. Cole walks, Greinke steps into #2. McCullers plugs back into #3 and Sanchez replaces Miley. #5 could be any of the young pitchers, including Urquidy.

Straw isn't going anywhere. Need speed off the bench for late inning situations.

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.

When Pressley was quietly put on IL I saw after the fact that they didn't make a corresponding move. That allowed them to bring Kemp back in and trade him, right? If so, then trading Kemp freed up a spot as well...but it will be taken when Pressley comes back.

There was no bring Kemp back in. It was trade or waivers.

Meanwhile in Rangers thread land..

I agree with everything in this post except the last sentence. Trading either or both may have helped in 2020 but it sure could have helped long term. At this point, I think JD has to make some significant moves this off season to prove to the fans that we want to contend.

We need good right hand bats and some SP for 2021 and beyond. We need outfield help. We need a catcher until Huff gets to the big leagues. We need a 1B.

I hope AP is right in that we are looking to double payroll next year. The problem is that some of that will come through arb.

Here's to hoping for 80 wins this season. That's probably all we have to look forward to until next spring

We need everything and we are going to get it this offseason and contend!

Please God try.

I hope the Astros paid dearly prospect wise at least.

Corbin - passes the look test and has good stuff, doesn't seem like he has the mental strength/confidence, TJ is a question mark

Beer - AJ Reed part 2, he'll mash in the minors but there's a reason he slipped so far in the draft, plus not sure if he's an everyday 1B

JBB - we seemed very willing to deal him last year, maybe there's something we don't like

Glad we found Fisher, Stassi and Kemp new homes. They had no future with us. Happy about getting Maldy back. Our pitchers love him. Need to get Chirinos some rest down the stretch.

Don't know exactly how well use the two Blue Jays but I'm excited to give Strom a couple new projects. Part of me wonders if James is hurt worse than we know. Hopefully Press and Peacock are back soon.

Everyone writing off Cole next year but I dunno. Maybe Crane will say F it and pay a big tax bill to keep him. Maybe there's a middle ground number. R Justice said a few weeks ago that he loves it in Houston. Adding Greinke has to make him love it more. Super Unlikely but you never know.

In the meantime, F YES. THIS IS AWESOME. Super props to last minute Luhnow and Crane for making this happen. Should be a huge shot of life for the team. Let's go get home field.

Stassi got us two 18 year old OF'ers.

When they are both raking in 2024 we will look back and laugh at LA.

Have to admit though, pressure just get increased in the clubhouse. We are far away the best team. Only team that comes close is Dodgers. Yankees could beat us, but they would have to mash against proven veteran top of MLB arms.

Looking forward to learning how Luhnow put this deal together. For all we know, it could have been agreed to days ago, Luhnow tells the Dbacks to send out Greinke today so no we don't tip our hand to the Yanks, then they announce minutes after the deadline passes.
