    Trade deadline game thread as we wait for Irish to resume duties...


    Game 1: Maeda/Gray at 5:40 PT
    Game 2: TBD/Freeland at 5:40 PT
    Game 3: Ryu/Marquez at 12:10 PT

    Game 3 at the same time as the deadline is nuts!

    There you go boyo...best of what life has to offer to both of you.

    An old Scottish toast then ( must be said with a heavy accent!) :
    Beefsteak when you're hungry
    Whiskey when you're dry
    A fiver when you're stony broke
    And heaven when ya die .

    My IRA toast is a bit less loveable...

    Up the long ladder and
    Down the short rope
    To hell with Queen Lizzy
    And God bless the Pope
    If that doesn't do
    We'll tear her in two
    and send her to hell
    with the Union Jack, too...
    Up the Republic!

    Roster news:
    Negrón (dude we just traded for to play backup SS) is with the team. So is some reliever Sborz.

    Enrique on injured list, Schultz down in Triple A, and Gonsolin will be pitching tomorrow

    seems like they’re trying to force gonsolin as a starter
    imo could be better as a reliever, for both him and the team

    So I'm sitting at the table with the preacher/minister
    The guy looks like the Actor from American psycho and there are 3 other people that are very religious including a guy named Magic Johnson
    As Irish makes his rounds with his new wife he gets to our table and says "see baby I told you magic and the devil would get along "
    He then gets distracted and I'm left looking at all these people trying to explain why he just called me the devil...
    It was interesting to say the least
    Girl told me that the preacher kept looking at her with a look she interpreted as why are you w this guy?
    I wasn't going to be trapped into a born again question and answer so I went on the offensive
    Followed by "anyone else need a beer?" And of course no one did but that didn't stop me from finding my own lol
    Be curious if Irish caught wind of that

    Poor guy has had starts in Arizona AND Coors lol. Agree that he could be a good bullpen piece. Would probably see him do that in September although right now we do need a 5th starter

    Might be interesting to see if Gonsolins name has come up in trade talks though...

    tbh i would have missed it if not for nancy
    she was all over it ... “you called mike devil in front of the officiant”
    of course she didn’t tell me until we’d already walked away lol
    lol magic isn’t religious... i smoked weed with him many times
    i mean, a friend did

    what’s your thoughts on syndegaard doyer?
    at first i was not at all for, thinking the pen is the priority
    but as time goes by it’s more intriguing
    especially if it moves maeda and/or strip to the pen

    He’d be amazing. Although Felipe Vazquez is a perfect fit, he seems unrealistic at this point cause pirates don’t look like they’ll trade him. After that, you go for biggest impact. Noah, Wheeler, and Ray are ALL great options as a 4th starter or as insurance for our top 3. Noah/Wheeler in particular help against teams that are heavy with righties. Maeda going to the bullpen for the playoffs is a MUST and we have no idea what Hill will be when he’s back. Getting a real good 4th starter makes the playoff bullpen good enough, provides depth, and protects against injury. Your 4th starter can also be used in the bullpen during the playoffs, and imagine Noah/Ray/Wheeler in the bullpen for a game 2, 6, or 7? It’s enticing.

    Noah is tough to figure out though. I don’t think he’s as bad as his ERA but I’m also not sure he’s as good as his peripherals. I think the Dodgers could make him into a very good starter though and I’d be willing to give up a lot for him.
