I like Boyd. Not trading a good pitcher that is under control for three guys that will probably never make it to the major leagues is a sign of progressive analytics-based reasoning. Or maybe it just means they are not insane.

And he seems like a genuinely nice guy.  Not that it means a thing when it comes to winning, but it doesn't hurt for community outreach.

Thanks.

So, if Demeritte remains productive with us as he was in AAA this year, is he a future lead-off hitter?  He gets on base and has some pop.  Don't see many attempted steals, was that swipe yesterday anomalous?

I'll go out on a limb and predict that he's a 1st ballot HoFer if he maintains that 2.250OPS for his career.

Lloyd will have those guys hitting like Candelario and Lugo after a few weeks.

Miggy has regained his power?

sounds like Lloyd has helped him out by having him not take a pre-swing stride. so he's basically swinging flat-footed, and it seems to be working.
