Ditto Reynolds by the Rox.
Wonder who will take a flyer on either/both?
If Harvey was a LH he would have already been picked up.
Hard no on Harvey.
We should be targeting Brad Hand.
The Rockies are in dead last behind the Giants, Padres, and D-Bags...
...yeah, nobody tell me they're ever going to be good.
Heard it too many times.
he told you the truth
we're going to sign wily peralta aren't we?
Tribe 3 back and I'm thinking that no way they trade Hand or Bauer.
Relief market is so hard to figure out, I won’t be surprised if we don’t see activity until the last hours. Trying to make sense of it:
Tier 1 (elite relievers with multiple elite seasons):
Felipe Vasquez, brad hand, Yates, Will Smith.
Hard to tell who is really available of those 4. Maybe none! I’m really skeptical any of these guys are actually traded. Maybe Smith.
Tier 2 (relievers with past success having good/great seasons):
Ken Giles, Shane Greene, Tony Watson,Alex Colome
Giles/Greene are definitely available and both would be good as set up guys.
Tier 3 (relievers having breakout years):
Amir Garrett, Chris Martin, Aaron Bummer
Garret is hurt but Martin/Bummer should both be available and would be good gets. Bummer is more useful for LA since he’s a lefty but he’ll be more expensive.
Tier 3.5 (relievers with past success having good years with some skepticism on keeping it up):
Sam Dyson, Shawn kelley, Jared Hughes, Ian Kennedy, Andrew Chafin, Greg holland
These guys would be okay but disappointing if they’re the best reliever they get tbh. Good gets if they’re like our 3rd/4th best reliever but not clearly better than some guys we have
Tier 4 (relievers not having good years but might be fixable or usable in different spots):
Jake diekman, Raisel Iglesias
Diekman will be traded and would be good enough as a LOOGY. Iglesias probably won’t be traded. This tier could extend to a million guys and this FO always tends to get at least one guy from this type of tier.
Rosscup cleared of course wtf
Speaking of lefties, the Giants DFAd Derek Holland. Lefties are hitting .182/.276/ .195 off him this year. Wouldn’t be bad to get him for that role.
Lefties have zero home runs off him since 2018 started and only 5 doubles.
Maybe Holland is better than his performance this year was... Could be he just dropped the soap in the Frisco showers early in the season and wants out of pumpkinville...
Of course, as a Dodger, he'd have to deal with Kiké...
If the Gnats dropped him, he must really be useless.
Who was it let Parra go ?
The latest reliever linked to the Dodgers by Rosenthal: Mychal Givens. I just threw up in my mouth.
His Ks are up quite a bit, but so are his HRs and walks.
Don't even think about it.
Givens can be pretty good. He’s better than Yimi/chargois/Sadler/Rosscup which isn’t saying much obviously. He’d be a good 2nd or 3rd reliever they get but not the best one they get. And he’d be a reliever I’d be happy with for regular season but not playoffs idk. Throws hard, has good stuff but like you mentioned, not great command.
Never heard of him until the post, but if he has no command and gives up taters, we already have that in Jansen.
Alvarez freaking tearing it up for the stros
sobering thought at the trade deadline
for josh fucking fields
The price of doing business. I'm sure the FO figured Alvarez was another in the long line of their Cuban busts.
Guess the Giants didn't get the memo that they sucked. This is very disturbing.
