    Not sure if I read the details correctly but three or four prospects for a one year rental of a relief pitcher when RP is your area of strength and you have a masaive shortage of starting pitchers sounds not all that smart to me

    Their starting pitching is good enough to get to the 5th or 6th inning like the Royals showed the MLB and the Mets

    Who also might be suspended if those allegations against him take place.

    its a no brainer for the yankees, they didnt give up anything...best thing they gave up from what i read is a potential back of the rotation starter. MLB wont suspend him for a long period of time, no charges were brought up against him and the case is closed.

    if Chapman is suspended by the league and misses 46 days of service or more in 2016, he won't be eligible for free agency, and will spend 2017 under control of the team, and will be paid similarly to 2016.

    Well then that's a good trade for them. I didn't know that was the case for him.

    Jays just stole Drew Storen. Revere is so bad.

    Seriously. I don't get that trade at all. Revere is beyond bad and Storen can actually play baseball decently.

    Forgetting what kind of hitter he is for a moment, Revere takes some of the worst routes I've ever seen to a fly ball. And he has the arm of a small paralyzed child.

    Didn't the Storen have issues with the Nats after they took away the closer job from him in favor of Papelbon? Probably just wanted to get him off the team instead of having a disgruntled player in the clubhouse.

    BUT PAPELBON IS A NIGHTMARE! I mean yes, that's true, but Storen has a legitimate beef, and is a long term legitimate closer. Papelbon is a short term cancer who will do nothing to help that team. I just don't get it.

    The Nationals remind me so much of the 06-09 Mets. Problems, talent, egos, etc.
