    Like it. Free agent after this year so only a rental. Cost should not be more than Broxton last season. If so, walk away.

    An upgrade is still an upgrade. Even if you don't consider the bullpen a "problem," why wouldn't you improve it if you can?

    Lopez is an upgrade. Maybe not a huge difference, but it would still improve the club.

    MLB TV finally mentions the Reds. Says Giants are keeping Pence. Lopez is the guy they will move and Reds are the team pushing hardest because of Sean Marshall situation.

    Lopez is fine but I wouldn't give up a real prospect for him. Not if this offense isn't being improved.

    For a second tier prospect, fine.

    Re: Official Trade Deadline Thread

    Expending energy on pitching when improvement in that area is likely to be virtually unfelt, all to the neglect of hitting, which could be improved in any number of ways, borders on malpractice. Still, it's just speculation at this point. So....

    I don't have a problem with targeting Lopez.

    Marlon Byrd intrigues me but I doubt that happens.

    Why in the hell would you trade Trumbo for a pitcher without legs? No wonder the Angels are where they are right now.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    I would guess Yorman, Guillon or Cisco would get it done.

    Trading Yorman for Marlon Byrd would be a pretty epic fail

    Trumbo in the middle of that lineup would be devastating. They'd have to pony up Taillon though, not gonna happen. Would be an interesting move for both teams, though.
