Well, for those of us who missed the day and saw late texts or updates from MLB, when you finally look you see….wow…Tulo traded. While a lot of us are thinking to ourselves, okay, if you get a good deal, you do it. Maybe get 2 top 25 or 30 prospects…in the MLB. But no, we see that Tulo was traded for….Jose Reyes, three prospects, none in the Top 50 of any’s lists, and the contract going away.
I was prepared to be excited but…we got a better deal for Ubaldo and that one stunk it up.
We will find out more in the future. All hail the Jose Reyes era, and his glove of holes and his increasing range of…oh wait not.
I guess I just say, bleh.
First big trade of the Bridich era…there is one guy who will be key to the deal. And his fastball is, according to different scouting reports…hard…and straight. Oh boy.
Oh well, the Rox just signaled that they are not in this for 2016. So, everyone want to check back in Spring Training 2017? And given that reality….it only makes sense to deal CarGo (if you compete in 2016 he becomes the center of your offense), DLR, and a few more guys. Clear the deck.
