I'm still thinking the Cubs won't even make the playoffs.

It'd make sense to use him third to split the lefties, assuming Jake isn't going to go 4-2/3 innings or Hendricks is back and throwing well.

Yeah, it's a multi-year move for sure. They're trying to maximize their current window without worrying about whether they need to start replacing guys in two or three years. Ideally you can start restocking the farm system during that time because it's pretty thin right now. But you're likely not going to have the high picks that they used to build this core.

It's certainly possible, and it's common among World Series winners. I guess those are the pitfalls after you win the World Series. But I think winning the World Series is still worth it.

The Sandoval signing never made sense the day that contract was signed. It was a huge gamble that Sandoval could ever stay in shape.

Seems like an AL team would've at least had the DH fallback, though, if the bottom hadn't completely fallen out, if you'll forgive the expression.

Cubs completely blow the 8-0 lead then pull out a squeaker. Hey, it's a win.

Is it time to complain about the Dodgers' payroll again?

Rosenthal reporting that the Orioles are preparing to sell. At least their top relievers and Seth Smith. That's good to hear.

Metallica concert. I saw this post on Deadspin about it and asked my friend who was visiting Michigan and happened to take in a game.

Just watching MLB, and of the two games they were monitoring, one ended with a walkoff walk, and the other on a walkoff error when Choo lost the ball in the sun and let it glance off his glove.

They should

Obviously a small sample, but I caught the 3 games against the Cubs and the O's pen looks pretty solid, a lot of those guys would have some value.

I've been screaming for it the last 2 months.

With the way things are now, relievers bring a premium price. The O's have so many holes and the worst starting pitching I've seen in 30 years.

O's need to think 5 years from now. Had a nice run the last 5 years but with the various trades, contracts, arbitration, this was inevitable. I think mgmt was hoping it would be a year later. But these starters all went to crap together this year. Barely held it together last year.

Nats pick up a couple closing options in Madson and Doolittle from the A's for Trinen and a couple top 10 prospects.
