Indians interested in acquiring Jay Bruce?

After acquiring Andrew Miller at last year’s trade deadline, the Cleveland Indians may be making a similar splash again this year. According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports on Thursday, some believe the Indians could become interested in New York Mets outfielder Jay Bruce. Bruce, 30, has had a strong 2017, hitting .266/.332/.529 with 24...Read More

A trade proposal for Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich of the Marlins

A trade proposal for Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich of the Marlins

If the Cards are going to go for it, they need to make some big moves. This certainly qualifies. The deadline just keeps getting closer. The Cardinals are nearing the time where they have to make a decision on what to do with this season. Going into yesterday, Fangraphs’ projections gave the Cardinals 18.1% chance to make it to the NLDS, a little better than a 4 1/2 to 1 shot. That’s not counting the fact that yesterday the Cards, Diamondbacks, and Brewers lost, and the Cubs and Rockies won. That’s probably a net loss for the Cards. Generally, I’ve supported selling over buying....

Trading for Giancarlo Stanton Could be a Disaster for San Francisco Giants

There have been rumors that the San Francisco Giants could trade for Giancarlo Stanton, but that could be a disaster for the franchise. I believe I’m in the minority here among San Francisco Giants fans, but I think trading for Stanton is a terrible idea. First of all he’s owed almost $300 million...

Bullpen Squanders Heroic Effort by Lynn, Pham: A Recap

Cardinals scrape together a lead, then blow it in the 8th and 9th again. Today is the definition of a getaway game, with the Cardinals closing out a 4-game stand in Citi Park, starting at 11:10 AM Central, 12:10 local. The Cardinals, 2 games under .500, are 4.5 games out of first in the NL Central, while the Mets are.... more games under .500. Like, 8. Lance Lynn vs. Seth Lugo. If we win today, It’ll mark a badly needed 3-1 series win against a struggling Mets squad. If we lose, might as well sell after splitting with the Mets - it ain’t getting better ...

Braves to face juggernaut Dodgers as first challenge on West Coast swing

Mike Foltynewicz and Brandon McCarthy will kick off what is sure to be a tough four-game series in Los Angeles. So, you just got swept by the Cubs. I know what you probably don’t want to next: go on the road to the West Coast, and play a four-game set against the team with baseball’s best record — the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers only have 29 losses. The Braves collected their 30th loss in their first game in June. It’s July 20th. Yeah... The Dodgers will be tough to handle. They have the best hitting in the National League (not as insane as the Astros lineup, though). Across...

Mets top pitching prospect Thomas Szapucki undergoes Tommy John surgery

There is no such thing as a pitching prospect. Sigh. Despite pitching only 83.1 professional innings since being drafted in the fifth round of the 2015 MLB Draft, Thomas Szapucki’s young career has been fraught with injuries. A lower back injury ended his 2016 season prematurely, and a shoulder impingement delayed the start of his 2017 campaign. On July 6, the southpaw felt tightness in his pitching forearm and was removed from his start after recording just two outs. He was placed on the seven-day disabled list, and wound up undergoing Tommy John surgery. The 21-year-old Toms River...
