maybe the Yankees have finally run out of minor league prospects
It helped that Greinke ha a no trade with them and not with us. And MadBum had a no trade. And the Mets took Stroman. Don't underestimate that move.

Well it sure doesn't hurt to A) show Cole we're gonna do what needs to be done to win and B) Acquire a good buddy of his

Maybe he's open to a team friendly deal to hag around a bit.


He doesn't give a ****. He's gonna try to get a ring and then get paid elsewhere.

I'm still in such shock from getting Greinke last minute, that I keep refreshing every feed expecting to see Lunhow somehow pulled off another trade nearly two hours past the deadline.

Dear JL,

Don't be surprised to see a couple trades trickle in. News take a while to break


Posted at 3:02. Definitely worth the bump.

What was even the biggest deadline deal? This deadline was a dud league-wide.
This post aged well.

Joshua Rojas - RR Express

What's the story on this guy? Looking at his stats he has an OPS over 1000 right now. Is he just blocked with all the infielders we have?
I think he is a prime candidate to be included in a deal this deadline.
Good call bearkat! This post aged very well

I would add Pena as my #5.

Nova, Lee, Ivey, Bielak, Brewer are in my next group of guys who are ascending. Still a lot of other interesting lower level guys. I think Luhnow will be able to rebuild the organizational depth faster than people expect.

No doubt. Little trades like the Stassi and Tyler White trades keep the youth coming in. They've shown they can scout other teams prospects with the best of them.

They haven't drafted at the top of the draft since 2015 either yet they had Beer, JB, etc which was good enough to get Greinke.

Don't forget they selected Whitley 17th overall.

Hey guys, how's it going?

Just noticed our 4th starter has a 3.06 ERA and our 8th hitter is Josh Reddick

Wow

I can't believe he pulled that off. Simply amazing.

He even got a return for the likes of kemp, white, and stassi which is also amazing... and incredibly underrated.

Assuming we're going to option Sneed and Urquidy (after tonight's start). With Pressly on the IL, we were already at 24 on the active roster, so that would allow room for Greinke, Sanchez and Biagini. Machete is a 1 for 1 switch on the active roster with Stassi, so no moves necessary there.

These guys thought Tucker was involved...now I can picture Luhnow with the moronic Mets asking for the moon for Wheeler while he just sits there trying to suppress a giggle. Ummmm, yeah, we're going to go ahead and have to pass on that offer.

Let's also not forget about the man paying the bills. Jim Crane should get just as much credit as JL in all this the past few years.
