    What's crazy is outside that first game blow-up where he gave up 3 ER, he's only given up 12 ER the rest of the season in 44 innings. Still needs a little work on his control, but he's got all the tools to be a top 5 closer. Elite, elite stuff.

    Kings sign Bazemore

    Creates a good competition battle between Moneke/Okpala/Bazemore in camp. And Baze is another one of those good vet presence guys, even if he's not much a key contributor anymore. Still, for your 10th-12th man, he's not bad at all.

    Yeah, he's starting to get his K rate somewhat in control and he's shown that he just nails the ball when he makes contact. Dude absolutely has some elite elite power, especially for a catcher. What's interesting is he hasn't taken a BB in the 2nd half of the season, but has his K rate to 29.7%...

    Looks like same deal and the Giants got a catcher prospect. Looks like he's raking: .264/.400/.444 splits. 145 wRC+ 16.2% BB 24.9% K 265 PA And in the Rosenthal deal: He's raking this year too: .306/.386/.485 140 wRC+ 11.7% BB 15.9% K 383 PA I mean, I really like all these deals for...

    Looks like we flipped Rosenthal too. So all the ancillary guys, but Joc/Rodon/Flores/Cobb are the guys who can get you decent-ish prospects.

    Wow Cassali gone. Probably a big sign we're trying to sell, he's our best catcher atm.

    Cool to see them go for it. Anyone but the Dodgers.

    The additional guys we got stat lines this year: Nick Swack in High A: 1.84 ERA-- 10.18 K/9--2.26 BB/9-- 63.2 IP-- 23 years old Carson Seymour in High A: 3.68 ERA--11.4 K/9--2.1 BB/9--51.1 IP-- 23 years old Thomas Szuapucki in AAA: 3.38 ERA--12.23 K/9-- 4.08 BB/9--64 IP--26 years old. Would...

    Huh, interesting. Not entirely sure why they gave us 3 prospects+Davis for Ruf, but I'll take it. Pretty good minor move, Davis is a decent hitter if he can get healthy. Has team control left.

    But yeaaaaaaa Padres get Soto/Hader/Bell Dodgers get Gallo Giants get a bad back-up catcher I was fine keeping Rodon last night, but Farhan is delusional if he thinks pushing for a WC spot to eventually get stomped is worth it. Joc/Rodon/Flores/Cobb should all be on the block

    They're sending Gore too, they're super pitching prospect as well. Idk, I don't think you could ever win a trade when you're the team dealing Soto, but this is about as good a prospect haul as they could get. Probably the only thing that we could have done to match this was go all-in with...

    Farhan better shell out for Rodon if we aren't trading him. It's fine if we want to keep making a WC push, but what a disaster it'd be to miss the playoffs and then Rodon walks for nothing.

    Yeah if we keep Rodon/Joc, we better end up signing them to long-term deals, otherwise it'll be the biggest mis-step this regime has had. They've probably been our best players, you can't just lose them for nothing.

    King Delly Has Officially Arrived

    It doesn't matter too much to me. He's the 15th man on the roster and only gets off the bench in case of injuries. I think he's much more a "locker-room" guy they brought in who knows Brown's system and can play some defense in a pinch if injuries/fouls happen. Thankfully, we've long...
