4 teams within 4 games of each other with 20 to play!

(so much more fun with the Yankees right there in the thick of it.)

So, it's an interesting thought, as nobody that was acquired for Miller, Chapman OR Beltran is being used at the ML level.  The youth movement is more of getting the kids they had AB's at the expense of ARod, Beltran, McCann and Teixeira.

That lineup with the best bullpen in baseball would certainly be better positioned for a playoff run.

But I wouldn't undo it.  They're overperforming and actually fun to watch now.  The tired meme of them being old and expensive is no more, and over the course of the week, they made their farm system jump from the middle of the pack to the 2nd best in the sport.

Stay on the path with the youth, then spend a billion on Harper, Machado, or Fernandez.   Or all of them.

i'm okay with that...as long as Trout never dons Yankee pinstripes.

He'd be a better fit than Harper.

I never thought Anaheim would trade him, but they've been horrible, and could turn their future around.

So, we'll TRADE for Trout, SIGN Harper.   Grin Grin Grin Grin


But this year, Toronto needs to get their shit together and beat the pretender atop the division.

Blue Jays are pussies.   Retaliating for this?   Pitch almost in the zone, glances off body armor, caught by catcher.
