Marlins sending Luis Arraez to San Diego for Dylan Head, Woo Suk-Go, Nathan Martorella.

It seems the Nats really will finally escape the cellar this season to end the streak at 4 years in a row.

The Padres have a bottomless supply of valuable prospects to trade and Arraez is still a good hitter even if he's not chasing .400 like last season.

Arreaz doesn’t walk much or hit with power. With exception of last season. Seems they are buying high.  And need pitching.  They’re 20 in MLB team ERA. Just seems delusional that they can compete for the West.

If the Padres never made a trade they'd have a heckuva team. The Nats need to steal their scouts.

Arraez is a poor man's Tony Gwynn, which is still really good. In the past three seasons he's posted wRC+'s of 131, 132, and 109 (this season).

I admittedly don't know anything about what the Padres gave up though.

you weren't kidding about the Gwynn comparison:

via @MLB

Tony Gwynn through 569 career games: .326/.378/.427 with 25 HR

Luis Arraez through 569 career games: .324/.377/.423 with 24 HR

Willson Contreras out with a broken forearm after getting hit by a bat swing. The Cards had reportedly had him move up recently.

Garrett Whitlock out for the year with an elbow issue. Trying for internal brace rather than a 2d TJS.

Was one of the better recent Rule 5 picks.

As the MLB integrates Negro League stats into MLB stats, Josh Gibson replaces Ty Cobb as baseball's all time leading hitter (in terms of career average):

Jeremiah Estrada of the Padres has now struck out 13 in a row over his last 3 outings, all swinging. He closed the ninth yesterday with 3 in a row.

Guessing it would be a 3 pitch K if Gallo faced him.

Every starting pitcher who is set to become a free agent is not happy with Blake Snell's and Jordan Montgomery's season.

Tigers have demoted 2020 #1 pick Spencer Torkelson. Hitting .201 / .596 in just over 200 PAs this year and .138 / .470 in his last 15.

there's got to be a chips joke in there with a name like Tucapita and gambling coming up.
