While baseball snuck into the main forum, can I share how old it makes me feel to not be able to watch a game without seeing or hearing about the kid of a player I watched 20+ years ago?  Vlad Jr, Mondesi, Bichette, DeSheilds, etc etc.

Good news for the NL East:  The Mets have no plans to move Edwin Diaz.

Hudson for Johnston seems a decent rental price.

Rosenthal saying Nats are in on Roenis Elias for a lefty too.

Yeah, that one stings a little.  Maybe a lot.

I said in another thread that Bichette's kid's name is Bo.  So he's Bo Bichette.  And if his nickname isn't "The Bounty Hunter", something is seriously wrong in this world.

Don't know much about Elias but looking at his numbers doesn't seem much better than Sipp.

And he's shown some flashes, too!  Very enjoyable to follow him.

Elias doesn't have the extreme platoon splits that a LOOGY like Sipp does.

I don't either, but has a reverse split this year.  So, maybe not the lefty we were looking for.

Yeah.  Stark says the Nats have been telling teams they are getting 3 relievers today so guess there's one more coming too.   I'd rather them get a starter (Roark?) and put Ross/Fedde in the bullpen unless that reliever is really good.

Been watching that kid the last couple of days against the Royals. Damn, he looks young. But he's got some tremendous bat speed for a little scrawny kid.

2B has been a disaster area for the Giants this year.

Saw the thing on MLB Network the other day where they were showing how his bat was still pointed at the pitcher while behind his head after the pitcher had released the ball.  They said that's a big no-no because you can't get bat speed and usually in AAA and the majors, they'll correct that.  Then they showed him blast homer after homer after homer with that stance.  Said they probably won't touch it.  Amazing bat speed.

Lol. Yea I pop in. I follow the Rays but don’t watch the games. Much like the Magic really.

Curious to see if they make a trade.

Some follow-up tweets saying not MadBum.  Rosenthal saying Pomeranz.  Not sure if that is whole deal.

A's get Roark, which I'm assuming means the Phils have officially closed the book on this trade deadline.

Ray Black is a 29 year old who throws hard but hasn't shown much at the MLB level.

Pomeranz is a rental

Don’t get this one. He loves baseball. 

Only when the Red Sox are good. When they're 10 games back of the Yankees, he has no interest in baseball and confuses his own lack of investment as support for why no one else likes baseball anymore. 

He was able to make it through about 5 minutes of baseball talk yesterday before shifting over to complaining about A-Rod as a broadcaster for 20 minutes.

Lots of little moves going on but nothing big.  I still think at least one big name gets moved in the last hour.  Maybe two.  But wouldn't be surprised if Bauer and Stroman are the biggest names moved.

Seems like Wheeler to the Astros or Rays is close to getting done. 

I have no idea why they moved Vargas, who's a fine #5, for jack #### if they intended on moving Wheeler and still trying to contend this year (they won't).

I mean I know the actual answer is because the Wilpons wanted to pocket a few extra million...

Third RP for the Nats....

Jamal Collier
@JamalCollier

The Nationals are also acquiring RHP Hunter Strickland from the Mariners in exchange for LHP Aaron Fletcher, per a source

So who goes?  Blazek, Sipp, and Guerra?   Grace stays?
