Rays vs. Brewers, game 2: Zobrist sparks comeback; Cobb fantastic

Escobar ejected. Another fantastic win for the Rays. Source: FanGraphs Scheduling snafu means that this is an abbreviated recap now, so there will be doubly interesting details tomorrow. Four thousand words at least. Some highlights: Ben Zobrist homered to tie the game vs. Matt Garza, and then was part of the rally that delivered the win once Garza was pulled. Alex Cobb was great, striking out 12(!) Brewers in eight innings, nearly all of those strikeouts coming on his splitter. Alex Cobb also disrupted the Brewers reliever, Will Smith, by getting the Rays groudn crew to pour some magic...

The economics behind the decision to buy or sell David Price, Ben Zobrist, and Matt Joyce

Part gets made Thursday, but not all. The Rays enter the week of the trading deadline with one of the more interesting decisions they've faced. They can either sell, David Price, Ben Zobrist, and/or Matt Joyce, all three of whom are desirable players with one year after this one remaining of team control, or, they can keep their veterans and perhaps even add small pieces to help in a playoff run. The FanGraphs playoff odds (which include projections of team strength) currently give the Rays a 13% chance of making the playoffs. That could either go up or down by Thursday. For this thought...

Trade Target: A whole new second base platoon.

The A's are scouring the trade market for a decent second base option. However, after already trading away their top two prospects in Addison Russell and Bllly Mckinney (and maybe their top three prospects depending on if the injured Raul Alcantara is the future PTBNL) the A's probably do not have enough prospect ammunition to land one of the top second base trade candidates available. Overpaying is going to be the norm this year. What to do? If the A's get creative they may be able to make some smaller trades that will collectively make them better than a single Ben Zobrist or Daniel...

San Francisco Giants Link Dump, 7/17

I can show you that when it starts to dump, everylink's the same Happy birthday to Justin Knoedler! Uh, the pickings were a little slim today. BASGcast (Ep. 100!): All-Star Break Giants check-in with Grant BrisbeeThe Bay Area Sports Guy podcast talks to Grant about trade possibilities for the Giants, and as any longtime reader would expect, Grant waxes poetic about Ben Zobrist. He also discusses other second basemen too, like Martin Prado, some Murphy (Daniel, I think, but it might be Donnie or Davey or Dale), and Chase Utley, but let's not be fooled. Zobrist is the apple of his...
