    Trade Proposals

    Wasn't he pretty good prospect for the Rangers at 1 point? Figured he'd be a decent Coop'll fix em candidate. But if you've seen him and the stuff isn't there I'll take your word for it. How about Ben Lively? Potential for a back end of the rotation arm next year?

    Phillies could be a decent trade partner. They could use a vet starter and a bullpen piece. Shields and Soria for Jake Thompson and Roman Quinn We'd probably have to throw in some offsetting $ as well...and even then its still questionable what we'd get in return for what we have to trade. I think Jose was our only chance to get a legit prospect back and his slump probably killed that. We all have to cross our fingers Jose goes on a ridiculous tear the next 3 weeks.

    Wouldn’t hate a fulmer for a failed hitting prospect deal at this deadline. Pretty sure it won’t happen, but it’s something I’d certainly consider.

    Fulmer's issue isn't getting through the lineup the 3rd time...his issue is getting hitters out in general. Moving him to the pen isn't going to solve that issue. The biggest problem is that he has a pretty mediocre 93/94 mph fastball and he has no idea where it's going. He's 24 and needs to learn how to pitch basically. He overpowered college hitters and he's unable to do that to the highest level hitters and needs to go back to the drawing board.

    Madrigal with huge error on a bases loaded play....cut him now

    Uh oh...hopefully that’s not his arm?

    No reason for Tilson not to be bunting there. Strikeout there was worst case scenario

    Covey is frustrating. If he learned to push off and really drive through his pitches he’d be so much more effective. He stays too tall and leaves almost everything belt high. If he worked his fastball knee high consistently he’d be incredibly hard to hit

    Astros interested in Abreu?

    I still think Jose's value could be underrated around here. He unfairly gets lumped into the "1b slugger" category that definitely doesn't have a great market. Jose is flat out a better hitter than the 1B that struggled to get contracts though. Maybe I'm overly optimistic but I'd hold out for a top 50(ish) prospect + another top 10 prospect from the team.

    Jose showing his worth...what team wants to give up a top 50 prospect for him?

    Let him go back out? I know the pitch count isnt high but think I’d be content with 6 scoreless and leave it up to the pen

    This is the 1st time I’m watching a full Covey start...has he worked this up the zone the whole time or struggling with location tonight. Shows how good his fastball is though with the 0 still on the board

    Yeah I agree. Even worst case scenario you have to stick Yoan in LF, his bat SHOULD still play plenty there.
