I want it all baby.    I want them to sell high on Liriano, Fiers, VMart, AWilson, Martin, etc to collect more reinforcements while we merrily go on winning.

Sell high on an injured Wilson and decaying Martinez, eh?

TBH, right now I would doubt they get offers on anyone other than Liriano. Well probably Nick if they are willing to go that way.

I guess it depends upon what is meant by offers.

Hopefully some sort of non life threatening plague hits a lot of top SSs for the rest of 2018 and a serious market builds up for Iglesias.  And maybe Mrs. Hardy is scouring the trade market looking for a new residence.

They'll get 10 Surface tablets for their scouting departments for V-Mart.  

Avila would make that trade tomorrow.

We should hire the GM from the Vegas Golden Knights - who also built most of the Washington Captials roster.  

Wrong sport? 

 

Who cares ?

You need a combination of pitching and hitting to win games.  In order to win, a team needs to score at least 1 run.  A pitcher cannot provide that run, especially in the American League when a DH is used.

In order to lose, you must give up at least one run.

If the Tigers had a rotation including Verlander, Scherzer, and Price, they'd be a shoo in for the Series

I'm torn on what to do with Castellanos.   He's still only 26 so obviously young enough to be a part of our future but we only have him under control for a season and a half.   Should we try to sign him to an extension or trade him?  I feel if you're not going to extend him you gotta trade him at this deadline if you want to get back anything of value.

No one will give up anything for him. But on the bright side, he wouldn’t cost too much to keep around if they want to.

Fulmer and Cabrera to the Rockies. We get Brendan Rodgers.

Not enough of a return.  The Rockies have a loaded farm.

I think he has decent value at the moment and perhaps more if he keeps hitting for the next 60 days.  His defense seems to be a little better than expected, too.

Fiers to the Yankees.  It doesn't matter what for.

Without Ausmus, maybe.

Give him the locker next to Stanton. J Montgomery out for year after TJ surgery. Yanks are going to need a starter sooner rather than later.
