Probably going to need to be approved by commissioner since money might be involved

 

Yep. This thing is getting announced today. Maybe soon if a player on the 25-man is involved.

I kind of really hope Jay is in the deal, I think he would fit perfectly with this team

Same. He adds a lot of flexibility and gives a hot contact bat from the left side.

If Jay is included I see him in left at times with Melky moving to DH

I approve of this message.

Read the first few pages of this thread, many posters were against the idea

I read the first 3 pages. Hardly anyone was against it because of his ability. Instead it was more about money.

 

In fact, you even listed the rotation and said that it "looks a hell of a lot better than what we currently have"

Maybe why Avi not in lineup?

 

Hope so. If he's going to get good somewhere else, let it be on a bad team in NL West where nobody is paying attention.

I maintain that our rotation with Shields is much better than that without him. However, it still can't be denied that he's declining and has poor peripherals even without that last start

Wow. This escalated quickly. If the Padres are eating half the salary and we give up minimal prospects-- kudos to Hahn.

Could see Matt Davidson thrown in, because why not?

Johnson, Tatis Jr., Davidson, and Garcia for Shields, Jay, and cash!! /green
