May As Well Trade Arms

August 1st, 2016
Could bring hitters.

Could bring hitters.

So late last night, uber MLB insider Ken Rosenthal reported the Giants are hot after Matt Moore.

You know what Joe says? Trade all the arms!

If there is one thing this franchise seems to be able to do right is produce pitchers. If there is one thing this franchise has demonstrated year after year is an inability to recognize and/or develop hitters. It is a disgrace.

No baseball team is going to win games if they can’t score runs, short of resurrecting the 1993 Braves rotation.

So Joe is of the mind to trade Matt Moore and Chris Archer and get in return nothing but sticks.

Then pray Derek Shelton doesn’t screw them up.

    I simply hope the rays get someone who at least remotely close to helping the Rays at the MLB level which means someone who is already at the AAA level but it seems to me that the Rays are more likely going to land players who are years away from the MLB. An example is Willy Adames, great talent but still 3 years away from actually contributing if he does not get injured or suffers through a regression of talent. And Joe; yes lets hope that Derek Shelton does not prove detrimental to the progress of any young bats the rays may manage to land from someone like the Dodgers, Giants or Pirates….

    Anybody notice that the L A Dodgers took out their starting Pitcher, Bud Norris, after 13 pitches last night ? They’re saying “back muscle tightness”. Currently, they are 2 games back of the SF Giants. They need starting pitching in the worst way and are going after Chris Sale of the White Sox or Mat Moore.

    Big payroll big chance, little payroll little chance. After somewhat recent success following losing and stocking the lower levels, the cupboard is looking bare. This won’t be an easy fix.

    IMO if the Rays make a trade with Texas they need to get that kid Gallo. I think he will be the next Rizzo.

    Gallo’s powerful, but a lot of swing and miss.
