LOL yeah we should totally get rid of Kersh, Yasiel, and Gonzo based on a four game sample size!!!

Anyway, if we extend Howie then I'll really like the trade. If not, then we QO him and collect a draft pick, which I still think is justifiable.

I could be wrong, but I don't believe he's considered to be a top 20 anymore?

@PagansOedipalComplex @Moderately Excited Towel Eric's article at TBLA says no, that he will not go on the 40 man. 

"Zarraga was drafted by the Brewers in the 44th round in the 2007 draft. He is not on the 40-man roster, but will add to the catching depth in the organization, which is razor thin."

@MajorPuigBaseball @NoHitWin2008 @Lobo Agreed. If the Padres intentionally leaked info in order to extort more money, then FUCK THEM.

@DBrim Yeah, it'd be nice if those guidelines were followed to the tee every single time, I agree. I'd feel better about it if the Padres source simply said that there were concerns about Kemp passing the physical, as opposed to being specific about what frightened them. 

Better yet, don't say a damn thing until you determine one way or the other if he's passed.

@Lobo If they genuinely violated some type of league rule or law, then sure. If not, then just let it go.

@moneynow27 REALLY excited to learn more about Hatcher. He flew under the radar big-time in that trade, and he'll likely end up being the biggest piece we get from the Marlins in terms of 2015.

@tsneddy (change is weird) @NoHitWin2008 @PagansOedipalComplex There's a pretty decent chance that Grandal provides similar value to the Dodgers in 2015 as Kemp would. 

Not saying that Yasmani is gonna be a better hitter, but overall value could be closer that people think.

@PagansOedipalComplex @tsneddy (change is weird) The blowback would be pretty immense if the Padres were perceived to be extorting Farhandrew. I'd bet good money that POC was right, and that they were just doing their homework extensively.

Why are some people freaking out? The physical just took place yesterday, and we'd been told all along that they wanted to make the trade official by Thursday. It's currently Wednesday night, right?

I'd be really surprised if League got DFA'd. There's some value in what he does, provided that he isn't constantly put into high leverage situations.

Wonder if Farhandrew are looking into Varvaro, who was just DFA'd by the Braves.

@DKD I'd be shocked if they dealt Seager for Hamels. Urias, I wouldn't be AS schocked, but I'd still be surprised. And Joc fills a need on the '15 ML roster, so that doesn't seem all that likely either.

@InsideThePark I'm assuming that they'll do something with Ethier and Guerrero, and perhaps even Arruebarrena.

@Mike Petriello @NoHitWin2008 I'm inclined to feel the same way, simply because I trust the new FO to not need to scramble for a R. Hernandez type should he get injured. 

Basically, there will be a plan in place.

The Anderson move seems totally defensible. Super high risk, but super high reward. I guess it really just depends on who our number 6/7 starters would be in the event of injury.

@666foldamort Oddly enough, losing Greinke would hurt me a lot more than losing Kemp did. I would be bummed, but if we found a way to turn Greinke into Hamels then I wouldn't totally hate it.

@PagansOedipalComplex @NoHitWin2008 @LA_Woman Yeah, they really need to go on a nice fat losing streak. 

We play the Kings on Sunday, and they just fired Malone. That one might be a W, but if not then we could easily go on a nice little streak over the next nine or ten.

Maybe I should laminate the contents of this new law and wrap my growler with it. Old label is covered, and proof is given that it's okay to fill all in one shot.

@internet baseball fan potato friend @NoHitWin2008 @DBrim Really? That's fascinating to me given Oregon's reputation for being so liberal. Then again, I guess I could apply the same stereotype to CA and the growler laws. 

Do you guys have that insufferable "near beer" there? Utah is a beautiful state and all, don't get me wrong, but...ugh.

@DBrim @NoHitWin2008 I've been to some breweries in OR and filled up beer in a generic glass growler that I purchased at BevMO. I guess CA is different, but maybe it's OR that just has the more lax laws.

TIL that California beer growler laws are incredibly fucking stupid. 


You can't use any growler to get beer from a brewery. By state law, the growler HAS to come from the brewery which fills it with beer. So DUMB.

Obviously we don't know all that much about what goes on behind the scenes, but I was a little surprised to see Kendry Morales get 2/$17M with the Royals. I don;t know how much Friedman/Zaidi will knock off of Ethier's deal, but he could have been an interesting buy-low candidate for them.

@DBrim @NoHitWin2008 @Mike Petriello I was kinda thinking the same thing. Also seems that a lefty off the bench would be useful given current options, but I'm also assuming that Ethier gets moved and isn't considered for that role.

Shit, as much as we've already seen happen, there's actually a lot that can still do down with this team. It's incredible.

@Mike Petriello @NoHitWin2008 @DBrim Good point about Byrnes. It's not lost on me that we've traded with Friedman's old club (Peralta), we've traded with Byrnes' old club, and we had deep discussion with another one of Byrnes' old clubs (D'back with the Kemp talks).
