Looks like Fielder is done for the year AGAIN.

How many millions per herniated discs are we up to?

Shin Shoo Suckdick to the DL too. Still the worst FA signing of JDs career.

Amazing how this team nose dives when he goes out.

Team was already nose diving before this. Record with Choo 17-16, without 38-25.

Hey.

You hijacked my "Fielder was a terrible move" back patting with your "Choo was a terrible move" back patting.

Neither one of them can pitch.

Is Martin Perez ever going to amount to anything?

Let's just hope this is a career ender for Fatty and insurance covers the lion's share of his remaining contact.

It would solve a few problems going forth.

Choo has a .7 WAR in 145 at bats.

Profar has a .5 WAR in 148 at bats.

Choo is really, really productive when he isn't broken. DHing moving forward (RIP Prince, the sequel) will help.

Well apparently WAR is garbage then because the record speaks for itself

This team sucks!

Seriously don't go blow the farm on some rental. Injuries blew want could have been a great season, but dont overpay for something that isn't going to make a difference. Houston is going to win the division.

I wasn't too thrilled with that trade today.

Meh--Demeritte is a 22yo playing his fourth season of pro ball and still in single-A with a 33% K rate.

Because these two guys were both available on the open market as recently as two months ago.

They both have been decent enough (and it doesn't take much to be better than Nick Martinez and Alex Claudio), but everyone is getting all excited about very small sample sizes (woohoo 15 innings pitched!!!).

The high price of pitching indeed.

We got two MLB players - both improvements over the status quo and both controllable long term - for a low floor, moderate ceiling fringe prospect who has already been popped for PEDs.

It might not be the difference in a WS or even getting to the playoffs, but this was a layup deal if I've ever seen one.

Travis Demeritte

I just need the name in here so I can search and TTT the day of his HOF induction.

By the way which of Alvarez's 19 IP in the major leagues did you enjoy the best?

All 19 innings were better than Alex Claudio, but I haven't ranked them quite yet.

Not a fan of this Beltran deal. You're giving up your first round draft pick for an old rental. I know Tate has been wheels off, but he's young and has plenty of time to figure it out. Not to mention where does this leave Profar? He needs to be in the lineup everyday right now, where is he playing if you have Beltran and Choo comes back?

Not sure I like this one either. Love getting Lucroy but would have preferred Gallo going over Brinson and Ortiz.
