Trade Watch Rumor

Love how all the beat writers are now saying "Rodon is coming back!" Like I need to leap out of my chair that the often injured gas can is coming back. 

Maybe we can combine Reylo and Rodon so they never throw more than 50 pitches a game.

It's a lot of work being a fake insider. Maybe not Steve was getting sick of it. If this one worked out, he could rest on his laurels a bit, if not, it was a good run, time to fake something else.

We need to replace Rodon's spot in the rotation in the offseason imo... unless we just keep him as a #5, which I'm not sure about him lasting more than like 9 starts in a season.

1. Giolito

2. Keuchel

3. Cease

4. Dunning

5. Lopez with hopefully Kopech replacing him after a couple months

I mean it's not training wheels, it's a guy who is coming off TJS whose arm isn't built up yet. Try to get him there by the end of the season.

This.  This is his first real throwing since 2018.  No need to have another Lambert situation on our hands.

Hell no to Lopez being given a starting spot next year

Yeah, Lopez is a swingman going forward or trade fodder for a.middle reliever.

If he can be another arm as a long man (2-3 innings) that would be extremely useful since we have 3 starters leaving games early right now and since Renteria refuses to use Detweiler in that role.

Yes, they should be tandem starters like Gonzalez and Lopez were supposed to be. Let the first one go 2 or 3, and the second one go 2 or3 and flip the line up, leave 3 or 4 for the bullpen. Not a bad way to use the 5th starter spot.

So if there was never a trade agreed upon we are left with the fact that our coach is just incompetent? I was at least holding out hope that there was a reason Cisheck was used in a high leverage situation yesterday. Nope, just bad coaching...awesome

 

sadly that’s my biggest takeaway from all this

If he can’t get his fastball over 95 again, he shouldn’t be on the roster

Honestly Gio Gonzalez until Kopech is read to go, then move both to the pen... Might be in the minority here, but I think Lopez could make a solid 6th inning/take over for a starter for 2-3 innings type.

He'll probably be non tendered.  What a waste, dude's arm is just made of balsa wood and not the best attitude either.

😂this is hilarious because it's literally the first thing that popped into my head when it was confirmed he wasn't traded.

like wait... why was cishek pitching yesterday if you weren't maybe moving some of the other guys?

Lopez will be out of baseball by June at this rate.

Wait till he gets rewarded with a 3 to 5 year deal for being "successful" this season.

Cishek had been a little better lately. They gave him the assignment they expected him to handle when they signed him yesterday. One really bad pitch, and he blew it.

I'm shocked Lynn didn't go somewhere. What a waste for Texas. Sounds like Daniels wants to win every big deal outright.

Not shocked the Sox didn't make any deals. Asking prices were probably too high - the Padres deal for Clevinger is solid volume we just don't have. I bet Texas was heavy on someone untouchable - Vaughn + Kopech or something similar. Maybe even Robert like that beatwriter tossed out - which if true Daniels is insane.

I’m glad they stayed put. It sounds like the cost for Lynn and most of the other players were too high. Look we’re in 1st place. We’re in a good spot. You give the young players a chance to get some experience in the playoffs and if they end up short than you can add some pieces in the offseason to improve the team.
