Gray to the Yankees for 3 minor leaguers.

3 minor leaguers with HUGE upside. (hurt, yes). Gray isn't that good, I am sorry. Glad it wasn't us.

again - that really should be discussed in the out-of-town scoreboard.

they hit on 1, it's a good deal. They hit on Kaprelian and a position player, it's a great deal.

yup. Good trade for both teams.

NYY were basically hoping Kap would become Sonny Gray one day (or better), there's more of a need for this year and next year as opposed to 3-4 years down the line. Gray is a long-term piece that was so desperately needed by NYY.

After 2017, NYY had a possible rotation of:

Severino
Tanaka (if he doesn't opt out/he's looked so bad this year)
Montgomery
??
??

Maybe Sabathia returns, maybe Garcia sticks around, who knows. Severino-Gray is a great one-two punch. If Tanaka sticks around and returns to form in 2018, holy cow.

their set up pretty well to win the division this year, then get Torres and maybe a healthy Bird next.  Dombo dealt too many bullets in his other deals.  Kimbrel and Sale are great, and Pomeranz worked out well, but the killer was the Thornburg deal.  they just stripped out their chits in trying to close deals quickly with over-offers.  I am not impressed with Dombrowski the past 10 years or so.

Jonathan Mayo says potential great haul for the A's:

Fowler has 20/20 potential

Kaprelian is a top 100 prospect

Mateo has world class speed

In terms of talent flows, my impression is that the only significant this-year asset moving from the NL to the AL has been Reed, while lots of talent has come into the NL (Wilson, Avila, Madson, Doolittle, JD Martinez, Lucroy . . .).

Which is funny to me, because the AL is wide-open, whereas the NL has the Dodgers (historically great pace right now), Nats (running away with NL East) and Cubs (defending champs, hitting their stride). D-Backs seem to be stocking up for the wild-card game and hope to catch lightning in a bottle vs the Cubs.

Brach for . . . Tim Beckham per FG.  Well, Beckham once was a #1 pick, so it proves that you can blow a #1 pick.

Brach isn't part of that trade, just some Ironbirds guy.  Brach is staying put.

How is it that the Mets still have Bruce, Granderson and Cabrera?  Lucky for us that the management of that team is a total joke.

those guys are owed $4-5MM over the rest of the season (Cabrera has a $2MM buyout on top of a little less than $3MM for the rest of this season).  I'm going to guess they think they can get them through waivers and get a deal done in August, but yes, if they end up holding them to the end of the year, it is a misplayed hand.

Not sure how many contenders want those guys, other than maybe Bruce.

They already called up Rosario, so one way or the other, they're moving on from at least one of them.
