  1. No. I'm pretty sure that's just someone making crap up. No way Cash says no to a deal that's one for one.

    We know the Rox have a scout in to watch Nova's start tonight (and probably Yanks have scout at Ubaldo's game). Seems likely there is a deal to be struck.

  2. MLBTR is reporting a deal between Indians and Rockies is done. Pieces aren't confirmed, but some combination of Alex White, Lonnie Chisenhall, Jason Kipnis, and Drew Pomeranz.

  3. This is how I feel if any of these reports are true: http://7.asset.soup.io/asset/0589/8583_2080.gif

    Ubaldo pretty much a lock for 4 WAR every year with potential 6 WAR ceiling. Brien I think you make a valid point in your previous post about the potential cost of NOT doing anything when it comes to the 2012 and 2013 rotations.

  4. Ubaldo has been pulled from his start tonight.

    In other news: The Yankees scored 12 runs in the first tonight. That's a franchise record for the first inning. Everyone got at least one hit that inning. This game is silly.

  5. For what it's worth, the rumor mill is going strong. The claim is the Yanks asked for a physical four days ago and were denied. That might be what is holding up the deal for the Tribe. But the Rox do have a reliever warming up for Ubaldo so who knows…

  6. Not heartbreaking as not getting Lee however I was really starting to get my hopes up for this to happen. I hope that our prospects turn out as great as the front office seems to think they are.

  7. On a sidenote, Jimenez gets told prior to the game that he's being traded, so he doesn't go through his normal warm-up, then they decide to put him on the mound when things aren't finalized, he gives up four runs in the first, then the deal gets done, so they yank him before the second. Net result: -9 points for my fantasy team. Jerks.

  8. With regards to Cashman, the jury is still out whether he whiffed (assuming this becomes final tomorrow "officially") because there's still a TON of information we do not have: scouting reports, internal/medical data, the actual offers/numbers being thrown about. Would I be upset — at face-value alone — to miss on Jimenez for Jesus Montero, Dellin Betances, and Ivan Nova? Yes. Could I see multiple scenarios where Cashman would have legit reason to not do that? Absolutely.
