re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

That's a lot to wind up paying a set up guy in meh Broxton...

Really though, Chapman as closer is vastly better than Broxton. So the Reds just hope they can outscore teams every fifth start. I mean you don't want a disgruntled Chapman starting. If his head isn't right, he can't perform to the best of his ability.

The Hanley news isn't surprising. When they said 2-10 weeks I was expecting this news. If Dee Gordon could just get on base, they could be ok, but he can't so...

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

From Ben Nicholson-Smith at MLBTradeRumors.com... Padres and Rangers looking quite a bit at Tigers pitcher Rick Porcello:

Quote:
12:07pm: The Padres have turned down two offers from the Tigers, Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio reports (on Twitter). The Padres declined to take Porcello for Huston Street or Luke Gregerson, a Tigers source told Bowden.

THURSDAY, 8:33am: The Cardinals are checking out Porcello, Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports (on Twitter).

WEDNESDAY: The Rangers and Padres are the teams most actively discussing potential Rick Porcello trades with the Tigers, Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports report. The Orioles have also scouted the right-hander.

Despite the strong interest, rival teams wonder if the Tigers will actually trade Porcello. Instead of making a deal, the Tigers could choose to keep Porcello and use Drew Smyly in the bullpen or as a starter at Triple-A Toledo. The FOX writers report that the Tigers will not move Porcello unless they obtain a strong return.

The Padres made an “aggressive” offer last week and the Tigers rejected it, Rosenthal and Morosi report. Talks with the Rangers are not advanced at this point. The Tigers appear to like shortstop prospect Leury Garcia and right-handed pitching prospect Nick Tepesch. Detroit would want a third player added to the package, but the Rangers are reluctant to move even Tepesch.

The Red Sox could have interest in Porcello, yet they don’t want to reduce their bullpen depth, the FOX duo reports. The Orioles aren’t inclined to pursue Porcello aggressively, as they have many young starting pitchers of their own.

The Tigers also seek a right-handed hitting outfielder. They have talked about re-acquiring Casper Wells from the Mariners, Rosenthal and Morosi report. The Tigers traded Wells to Seattle midway through the 2011 season in the deal that sent Doug Fister to Detroit.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

I like Chapman in the closer role. I've never really seen him as a starter but I'm afraid he might burn out or lose his rhythm as a starter.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Porcello should be kept. An injury to any one of the starters and the Tigers lack of depth in the minors will show (aside from Smyly). I really couldn't trust Crosby, Wilk, or Below for more than a spot start or two.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

I'm glad Chapman is closing. Should really give him the opportunity to let loose with his velocity and pound it like we know he can, instead of having a more conservative approach that starters have to adapt into.

The dude has potential to be the closer of this generation if he holds the spot, I doubt he will long term for years to come but you never know I guess. It's kind of a shame that there's no place for long term closers anymore, seems they just rather convert them if they are that good.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Please, in the sacred name of Willie Mays, let this year's monster spring training run of Brandon Belt's be a legitimate harbinger of what is to come this season. Good grief, this kid seems to be dialed in right now.

http://blogs.mercurynews.com/giants/...medium=twitter

Manager Bruce Bochy often stops Brandon Belt before games and playfully asks, “What are you going to do today?” Belt has a go-to response.

“I joke that I’ll hit for the cycle,” he said, smiling.
