    He's really turned it around. I've never been worried about him.

    Jorge Lopez let go by Mets.
    Should Seattle take a look?
    mid-relief can always use an extra arm.

    Woo's really got his good stuff cooking.

    This next series against the Royals should be a good one. If our bats ever heat up we should probably be on a tier above them, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Royals have lost something like 8 of their last 10. They’re coming down to earth big time

    Woo has a 1.07 era for the season. This pitching staff has been unreal.

    Just imagine if we had hitting. Get a fucking bat. There's gotta be someone we can send the farm too. Lol

    Pitching is great and hitting is down or Pitching sucks and hitting is great....

    the farm system is absolutely loaded again. We could afford to trade one or two of them and Bryce miller

    You cant expect to far in the post season with the 2nd worst hitting in the league. Get some fucking good bats. The pitching gets ZERO help. KC will sweep this weekend.

    We're rumored for Vlad Guerrero Jr. And Bichette. I'm not interested in Bichette, but I would swap France, Hancock, Ford? etc. For Vlad.

    France and Ford yes, keep Hancock. I don't mind losing Miller. Vlad would be a great get and I think would take Seattle by storm personality wise.

    The way Woo has been pitching I'd go Miller/Hancock/Woo for pitching to go out.

    The thing is, I don't think Toronto would ever trade Vladdy with just france/Ford. Probably draft capital and one of miller/Hancock.

    But I swear to God if we don't get a bat this trade deadline... like how the fuck can a front office be so inept. I expect them to stand pat cause they are fucking stupid but I would like to be surprised.

    Julio has been raking, Been impressed with Raley and JP is just gonna be solid. But we can't rely on anyone else. France has played well but inconsistent. Need that protection for Julio. (Servais has been trying to juggle the lineup but it's clear).

    It's a MUST BUY NO MATTER WHAT. We have shown we can hang pitching wise with any team for a series. Just imagine even 4 runs a game with this pitching staff.

    Bitchette I've never been impressed with. Seems too up and down (albeit I haven't followed closely, it just has felt that way)

    ... not Woo. His smooth delivery wreaks of a long career, and possible All-Star future. Just bundle up a bunch of relievers and picks, then hammer out a deal for a slugger. It's not the Blazers... it's OK to trade picks for Win now mode. Especially with one of the strongest starting rotations in baseball.

    Yeah but blowing an 8-0 lead aint good baseball. Not shocked if Stanek blows this.
