re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

There's no way that happens, MrMister. No way.

And listen to this scenario: 2 on, no out, Dunn strikes out in a 1-2 count. Doesn't move the runners. Konerko is next up and doesn't fair much better. Pops out. The two big power hitters. Two outs. Who comes up clutch again? ALEX RIOS. 3 RUN HR. Not that you can consider hitting a 3R HR clutch in the 1st inning when you're down 4-0, but still, timely hitting.

I read that in the voice of Hawk.

Also, I did say I have no clue how that trade could happen.

Apparently they'll consider moving Upton if they are out of the running for a playoff spot before the deadline, so it's possible.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

I love Hawk personally. Calls the games exactly how I would call them. And yeah, I'm just skeptical - not saying it couldn't. Reality is I have no idea how strong that Pittsburgh farm system is. I only keep a close eye on two or three prospects like wide anyways. But a 24 year old guy who very well could have won the NL MVP in 2011 is who we are talking about. Seems like nothing would warrant giving him up. Though I will say I think his power numbers regressing might continue.

Lol I didn't know we get boners over 1 AB sample sizes. If that's the case then Delmon Young is the Tigers best hitter right now because he's homered in 4 straight games. Not gonna bother to get in this again.

Pirates have some nice pitching prospects in Jameson Tallion and Gerrit Cole (last years #3 pick I believe) but I'd be shocked if the D'Backs give away a guy that young when they're only 4.5 GB with him slumping. He'll turn it around. It'd have to be a hell of an offer for them to take it.

Someone who really should be traded is King Felix. The M's aren't going to be in playoff contention by the time his contract is up and they could get a whole lot out of him. I'm talking 3 or 4 big time prospects.

EDIT: Oh lookie here Maestro Dunn and Konerko both get on base for a 2 out rally and Rios ends it with a K. BUT HE'S STILL THEIR BEST PLAYER DAMNIT!

In Rios's defense those were two questionable strikes to put him down 0-2. It pretty much forced him swing at the same pitch even further out of the zone.

I just saw the PBP and was merely giving him some grief after he made a big deal of one AB.
