All I can say is that Latos had better produce to make this trade look like anything but a hosing.
    Grandal is a switch hitting catcher. If he can hit, as it seems, he will have great value. I hope the Reds made the correct choice keeping Mes (too soon to tell) and that they didn't give up Grandal too readily.

    I have no concern over trading Alonso at all. He will be a good player and will have a high OBP, but my own take is that he will be a low HR first baseman. There's room for a lefty hitter like Alonso - I wish the Reds could add one - but his limitation to first base is the problem.

    I imagine Alonso being a healthy version of Nick Johnson.

"If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Dunner hit a 2 run bomb in the top of the 9th to put the White Sox ahead today.

    After hitting only 11 hr last year, that was his 8th of this season.

    .250/.376/.573

    Travis Wood is penciled in to make his Cubs debut tomorrow if Matt Garza is still out with the flu. Against Aaron Harang no less

    Edit: I totally missed there was a separate thread devoted to this

    He has a chance to continue that trend if he continues to pitch the vast majority of his games in a whale's vagina.

    Wow, Ronald Torreyes is having a horrible season in high-A for the Daytona Cubs. Get this: He's 1 for his last 31 and is batting .187 on the year (.523 OPS):

    He is 1-31 with no strikeouts in that period of time. You couldn't replicate that if you tried to. It is downright crazy to be honest.

    You could bunt 31 times with the defense knowing it and you'd get on base more than once. That's nuts. If he keeps the strikeouts down, his AVG will regress soon enough.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Yonder cracks his first homer. Average up to .300 with 10 RBI and a lot of doubles.
