    I don't get why the Mets would do a deal around Nimmo or Conforto at all. But please let them trade Nimmo to get him away from that useless organization.

    I’m happy that Luis Davila and all right Miami were able to come to an agreement after some discussion

    Just be happy you didn't have to give up Thor in the deal.

    As an M’s fan I am outraged. In order to make this right, it only seems fair for the Mets to give us another prospect or take back Jay Bruce. Or both. Fair is fair.

    Necessary move, I think, but I'm not sure I even care who they get back at this point. Best homegrown DBack of all time by a healthy margin

    Might be the same for the Cards too. He's pretty good.

    Think Arizona did as well as they could have, but it sucks when guys like this get dealt.

    Ok with the return. Hate dealing Goldy. With the comp pick coming back it adds some nice strategy to next years draft. Have comp picks for Corbin and Pollock coming too. Should have quite the bonus pool to play with.

    I feel like the Cards did well not to over pay. Weaver is a back of the rotation guy, Kelly was highly touted but the cards jerked him around a lot. If he can hit his potential, it's a great trade for the Dbacks.

    Andy Young should be a nice utility guy. He's really turned it on the past year or so in the minors.

    That’s probably a fair trade and the Diamondbacks got a good really return, but it has to suck to see a guy like that traded. Homegrown 6x all-star at age 31, whew.

    Curious what Morton gets, and if his deal is limited if he really wants to stay in Houston. I would rather take my chances on him with a short term deal than Happ, personally.

    I've seen him mentioned there, but I just don't see Houston adding that kind of money. I think Arizona can probably find someone to take on more of Greinke's deal than Houston would be willing to.

    yeah, what i was reading was more along the lines of the dbacks eating a lot of the money, and getting a pretty nice return

    I could see it if Arizona would eat about half that money, but Houston would probably need to give them something real in that scenario.

    Eovaldi and Jonny Venters (with 3) are the only 2 pitchers to come back and pitch in the big leagues from 2 tommy john's right?

    Does Keuchel beat Eovaldi's deal? A lot of people I was reading before the offseason were suggesting he wasn't a lock to get more than 3/$50, but none of them predicted this for Eovaldi, either (although I did, even if I picked the wrong team :smug:)

    I think he'll get about the same deal as Eovaldi, although he is two years older and didn't have the playoffs that Eovaldi had for recency/nostalgia bias.
