Bum does not want an extension. He wants to be a free agent.
He essentially is one if he waives his no-trade clause and gets an extension with the trade. Still choosing where he wants to be.
"essentially" is not "actually"

I'm going to take a texags-sized "I told you so" on the catcher acquisition. It's pretty obvious since June that something had to be done.

there's no way the Astros could go forward with a .450 OPS backup. Adios Stassi. Bring on Machete

Just as a warning, I'm going to be away from my desk and unable to look at my phone for about an hour starting at 1, so whatever is going to happen will happen during that time. I expect during by the time I get back we'll have traded Correa for Syndergaard or something insane.

really like the way Luhnow has gotten rid of the dead bats on the bench.

the AL playoffs are going to be about pitching and slugging. Half the games will be slugfests. Maybe more. Gonna have to score a lot of runs

Stassi may be a good guy or whatever, but I cringed everytime he was in our lineup. Anyone that doesnt think this is a good move is insane.

Correa, Reddick for Thor. Bring up Tucker and Rojas

Well now we have a back-up catcher who is still well below average offensively. Oh yeah, his defense also let us down when that's supposed to be his forte. His passed balls directly led to multiple runs scored in the ALCS.

I get the need for the move, and I hope it works out. We definitely couldn't count on Stassi at all. To be fair, it's not like we gave up anything we weren't already going to lose.

But he was flat trash last year in the playoffs. if you can't do offense, you better be able to clean that defense up.

We got a big upgrade at backup catcher for our scraps (sorry it had to be said like that Kemp)...

He won't play during the playoffs.

He's simply and add to take pressure off Chorizo down the stretch and emergency during the playoffs.

BMac's injury woes threw him into a lot playoff PT last year.

There was a trade hypothetical proposed this morning on MLBN on their show with whitley going to the rockies for marquez. Likely joking based on that...

anyone up for how many games in Chicago before Kemp makes a jumping catch and gets stuck in the Ivy?

So, what happens to Stassi? Down to AAA ?

It was Whitley AND Beer for Marquez. Marquez is under team control through 2024.

Can't believe people want to get rid of Tucker for a SP with 1-2 years of control

He's mashing near Alvarez levels in AAA. He will figure out MLB hitting

Imagine a mini Alvarez batting 8th in the lineup instead of Reddick

we talking Karbach - Crawford Bock or just some regular domestic? I would be OK if we sent a case of the good stuff with Whitley to get that trade done.

Giles has been one of the best pitchers in baseball this year. I don't want him in NYY.

People forgot that all you have to do is close your eyes and power swing toward the middle of the plate.

He won't fool you.

For TOR in games that don't mean shlt in front of fans and media who DGAF

Drop him NY in Yankee Stadium in a playoff game and watch the trainwreck

Giles has been pitching well in games that don't matter. The man has proven time and time again he can't keep it together when the pressure is on.

We said the same thing about Lidge and then to went and won a WS with Philly. Giles has good stuff. A change of scenery seems to have done him well. I'll stick with my original comment. He's been good and I don't want another plus arm in the Yanks bullpen.
Charlie Conway

Lidge never punched himself in the face after giving up a 3 run monster dong to gary sanchez in the 9th inning.

True but Lidge was a far better pitcher than Giles.

Giles in NYY wouldn't scare me.

Now I'm worried they add Lance Lynn...Someone who has done really well against us.

What are you talking about, you don't know anything is like Toy Story 4's Trashy, he's TRAAAAAAAAASH! Sell him

Lance Lynn who we scored 4 on last time we faced him?

Edit: 4 on without Springer, Correa, Diaz and with Jake, Stassi, & Straw in the line up.
