    Damn, Bud didn't pull Marquez until 11 runs scored! I don't think I've ever seen that before. That'll leave a mark on the ol' ERA.

    looking at Sadler he had a 1.86 era in 19 innings w TB this year
    seems weird they would have cut him doesn't it?
    or am i missing something?

    2:1 K to BB ratio is a little low, but otherwise his stats look good. And he pitched as many innings as his previous three years combined, and looked a lot better than those years, so I'm not sure why they let him go.

    Dammit, Taylor has a fracture. That sucks. He was doing really well. He’s an important part of the team, especially if Enrique and Seager don’t get hot.

    yeah i was wanting him gone early in the year but admittedly that was hasty
    guy has a knack for clutch moments as well both defensively and at the dish
    like Beatty back off the bench but he's a scary defender

    That really sucks. Every time I start feeling that we're getting to a place where Kike will no longer be used as an everyday starter, something like this happens.

    Gnats leading in the nightcap. If they win this one they'll be just a game behind COL and within 4 of the second WC spot. Someone else had posted this last week, but I'd love to see them fool themselves into thinking they have a shot and hold on to their assets, missing out on the opportunity to reload their weak farm system. I won't say I'm pulling for them... I can't do that. But I'm just not rooting for them to lose as vociferously as usual.

    Vassgay mentioned on Dodger Talk that the Dodgers are/should be looking at Whit Merrifield. He's pretty clueless but hopefully he's right (if other reports are to believed, he is not).

    Whit is basically a RH Verdugo that would fill a position of need at 2B, with the flexibility to move around the whole field if Lux emerges or someone gets hurt.

    .309/.361/.500/124 wRC+/18.0 K% (Merrifield)
    .307/.355/.498/.355/123 wRC+/9.6 K% (Verdugo)

    My goodness would that help tremendously. Contact, on-base, and pop from the right side.

    Rumor has it, though, that the Royals want 3 MLB ready players.
    Which is ridiculous, but he's on a team friendly deal, so they aren't under any pressure to move him.
    They should, however, because by the time they're ready to compete he'll be 35.

    Funny Royal fans. They must think they're the Marlins now or something.

    Or.......

    We could just call up Lux, Gonsolin, and Smith once they're all healthy and hit three needs at once.

    There is a guy in there that I would be fine with the club trading for Merrifield and that is Gonsolin. He is a good prospect, but I am not sure that he is worth more to us than Whit would be this season. If they want 3 MLB ready or near ready prospects, I'd say offer Gonsolin, Peters, Rios, White and if they would want him, Austin Barnes or go a younger spect if they prefer. That is opening one, maybe two 40 many spots for the eventual additions of Lux and May. Gonsolin and White both have front of the rotation upside, Peters has started to light things up over the last month+(figuring out his rebuilt swing?), Rios has started to hit for power again after taking a big step back from an injury and maybe the bright lights is what is getting to Barnes. Prospects are very rarely a sure thing and the Dodgers are not giving up a superstar prospect, but Merrifield is also not a superstar player in the middle of his prime. He is a damn good complimentary player, but he should also not warrant a return of either Lux or May as they have superstar upside. That's a package of a lot of potential solid contributors with MLB upside, 3 of which have legit impact potential in Gonsolin, White and Peters. Lux and Smith are just not realistic here as Lux is climbing into tippy-top prospect discussions and Smith should be starting at the MLB level now for a team that sorely needs help in the catching department. Moving Smith would be filling one less drastic hole at the expense of opening an already big one even more.

    Been to KC ... I like the town a lot. But like Denver and certain other baseball cities ... most fans there don't know shit about the game.

    If that's what they mean by MLB-ready then that makes more sense. Thank you for clarifying.

    Lefty. Righty. Just get a good reliever. Even the closer is washed up.
