Yanks just acquired Todd Fraser,David Robinson to push forward this season to the playoffs. Todd is a local boy, from just down the road, and a two time all-star. Robinson rejoins the team, a damn good reliever!

That's Frazier and Robertson...I don't think David Robinson is coming out of retirement to switch from basketball to baseball.
 
At the rate the White Sox are acquiring highly-rated prospects, if just half of them pan out it should be an almost unbeatable team!!
 
The Yoan Moncada era has begun...

  • When the BoSox signed "the Panda" I mocked the contract.  And sure enough ... they get to swallow $50,000,000.00.  Now he can return to the role that best suits him:  the Giants' mascot!
 
  • Another contract that I noted as team-suicidal was Giancarlo Stanton's.  But, it was cleverly back-loaded by the Marlins so that they could skim the cream off it before the big bills came due.  The fragile thug is having his best season, so the time is ripe for the Marlins to unload this circus act.  The question is, what team would be stupid enough to assume that contract?  I can think of only one:  the pathetic, desperate, (and rich) San Francisco Giants.  Doing this is as stupid as stomping out a burning paper bag on Halloween, but the 'Jints will do it.
 
  • And speaking of rich teams, the Dodgers are smelling blood and really have only the Nationals to overcome in the playoffs.  So, they will get both Verlander and Britton to make it nearly impossible for any team to deny them a WS title.
 
  • I can't help but believe that Yankee Stadium would cure Adrián González's aching back.  The Dodgers would give him away and eat half his remaining contract.  The Yanks would be silly to pay Billy Beane what he would want for his 'one year wonder', Yonder Alonso.
 
  • Paying so much for Adam Eaton was a colossal mistake.  Not only could the Nats have gotten McCutchen for that (or less), they could have gotten the key to the WS that they really needed as the O's would have happily traded Britton for Giolito.  Too bad, Nats; your window is closing.  Harper is already getting his Yankees uniform tailored.
 
  • The Brewers must beat the red hot Taillon to prevent a sweep.  The Cubbies look like they are no longer hibernating and the Boccos are feeling frisky.  The Bucs should stand pat and the Cubs already have their needed starter. The NL Central is wide open.  EDIT: PITTSBURGH PIRATES sweep Brewers!
