Good god. That Yankee bullpen is intimidating. Adding Robertson and Kahnle to Betances and Chapman? That's a hell of a foursome.

No wonder they got that new sponsor. [Insert your level of creep factor for sponsor here] Examples: Pornhub.

Also, the Giants are going to bring back Sandoval if he passes medicals.

The nice thing is about this trade is it's not purely a rental. Robertson is signed through next season and Kahnle is signed through 2020.

No surprise about the Giants bringing Sandoval back.

The Seattle Mariners acquired right-handed reliever David Phelps from the Miami Marlins after the teams agreed to a trade on Thursday, according to ESPN and multiple reports.

The Marlins reportedly will receive four prospects (Outfielder Brayan Hernandez, 19, and right-handed pitchers Brandon Miller, 22, Pablo Lopez, 21, and Lukas Schiraldi, 23) in exchange for Phelps.

Kato Kaelin has been losing his freaking mind over the Brewer's bullpen the last couple days. It's been a sight to see.

I'm really liking the Mariners getting Phelps. Our bullpen has been ok recently but has been very up and down all year. Wouldn't mind seeing them trade for a good back end starter too.

Four prospects for David Phelps is an awful lot. All the Yankees got for Phelps and Martin Prado were Nathan Eovaldi and Garrett Jones, neither of whom are even Yankees anymore. Eovaldi is now Tampa Bay's problem as he recovers from TJ surgery and Jones is playing in Korea.

Other than Hernandez, none of the guys they gave up are highly ranked prospects.

The Mariners have acquired left-hander Marco Gonzales from the Cardinals in exchange for minor league outfielder Tyler O’Neill, as per a Mariners press release.

Since clearly the Ms are crazy

Yeah I got nothing for this one. I don't mind trading O'Neil (he was blocked in the OF anyway by Haniger, Gamel and Heredia) but I feel like there had to be something more out there besides a dude who's missed almost 2 years due to injuries.

Chris Sale reached 200 Ks fastest than any pitcher in AL history last night

He's not gonna challenge the K record though since the Red Sox are already trying to manage his innings better in the 2nd half of the season (considering he leads the league in IP and is averaging like 110 pitches a game - that is probably wise)

He should be able to get to at least 300, though - he's still 85 innings below his previous max, and his SO9 average is a career-high 12.7.

Both Kershaw and Strasburg left their starts today with injuries

Kershaw's was tightness in his back

Strasburg's injury isn't disclosed yet as apparently the Nats are waiting for him to get checked by their own doctor

Kershaw to the 10 day, will see a back specialist in the next day or so. It seems like it is less serious than the deal that cost him six weeks last year,

Dave Roberts says:

“There wasn’t any shooting pain down the leg or the sensations that he felt last year, so that’s encouraging.”
