MLB - JULY 2017

Tells you how little the All Star Game meant in this area (and how awful sports town DC is) when about a quarter of the starting lineup and the starting pitcher was Nationals and all people are talking about is Bryce Harper asking Joe Buck what he thought of Dak Prescott :rolleyes:

It tells me more how awful Joe Buck is, which I knew long ago.

I love it being back to not deciding home field advantage for the World Series. Bud Selig wasn't qualified to be WCW commissioner, much less MLB commissioner.

You want his statue anyway?

Why would MJ, a murderously competitive person, be prepared to give up $$$ for Jeter to control the Marlins?

I say we send it to Montreal so Youppi! can burn it and piss on it.

Aaron Judge needs to be the face of MLB. Create the MLB Universal title for him.

I demand someone closely inspect Aaron Judge's neck. Because I am convinced there are 2 bolts sticking out of it. No way is that a normal human being.

Pretty good doc on MLBN about the 90s Indians. Though I'm a Phils fan at heart, the Indians were my team in the 90s. Mostly because Jim Thome was my idol growing up as a player and as a person. Such a great team, who should've gotten at least one title.

And off we go

#WhiteSox have acquired OF Eloy Jiménez, RHP Dylan Cease, 1B Matt Rose & INF Bryant Flete from the Cubs in exchange for LHP José Quintana.

For those scoring at home

Per Baseball America's most recent update

Jimenez was #5

Cease was also in the Top 100 (#83)

In fact by most ranking systems Jimenez and Cease were the top two Cubs prospects

Quintana is awesome, and the Cubs will be thrilled in the end.

I cannot describe to you how much I despise that deal.

On the one hand, I loved watching my boy Eloy here last year. The kid is electric. I'm going to miss him and Cease terribly.

On the other hand, FUCK YEAH QUINTANA.

Yankees trade pitcher Tyler Webb to the Brewers, receiving prospect Garrett Cooper. Maybe someday he'll be....The Pride of the Yankees.

I'll show myself out.

Well, we don't need a 1B and we have I think no left-handed pitchers at all, unless we found one in the last month, so we'll take a shot.

Edit: It's a miracle, we actually called up two. We had none for awhile. Not sure how you run a bullpen that way.

About 13 hours after KatyPerrysBootyHole had passed along wetbutt23's information, the deal was announced: Quintana for four prospects.

A CSN Chicago story on how the trade avoided the radars of the national baseball writers was forced to issue an excellent correction:

Correction: While no national media had this story, a Reddit user named “wetbutt23" had it last night. CSNChicago.com apologizes to wetbutt23 for the error.

Per Jon Morosi...Panda is due $49.5 million!!! That's only the second most dead money in MLB history.

Josh Hamilton is still the reigning champion there.

Sandoval's going to end up back with the Giants. They're not going anywhere anyway, so San Fran might as well bring back one of their World Series heroes on Boston's dime.

Boston should enable the Bonilla Act to at least save their ass. 

18 more years, btw. 

Another btw; what the fuck is going on with Sosa up above? Does he have vitiligo, or just some weird ass "natural" skin thing going on?
