    If I were doing that i'd announce the trade on Wed Jan 20, Biden inauguration day so any crappy trades like that get lost in the news cycle a bit.

    I wonder if Wrigley will have groundskeeper crew in 2021? Maybe the infield will look like a sandlot diamond by May.

    Where is he going to play? Don't the Jays have 3 OF and a DH already?

    They seem to need SP.

    Would Kris Bryant getting traded even be big news these days?

    Not trading him would be big news

    Why? They have 5 outfielders now who can start, plus a DH.

    They have to be trading at least 1 of them if not more, they need starting pitching. Maybe would have made more sense if they spent the money on Realmuto.

    Jays are going all-in trying to capitalize on their cheap young core. Remember when we did that? Good memories.

    They still have some good prospects too including starters.

    It doesn’t have to make sense anymore. He’s not going to Toronto. He’s staying in Houston

    Reporting is ****ing pathetic these days. It's more important to be first than it is to be right.

    Idk how no one else jumped at Brantley at that price. Feels like he is always underpaid given his skillset.

    It's always been important to be first. The issue isn't a change in philosophy, it's that in the past being "first" meant being the first to print; where you had literally all night. Let's not forget, 80 years ago "Dewey defeats Truman". This isn't a new phenomenon. It's just that with the invention of things like social media, when you're wrong now, you don't have 8 hours to erase it, it's out.

    Rosenthal, Passan, Heyman, all the guys here had this same story. But considering the amount of the guys piling on, it seems like there was something that went down; maybe Houston coming in on the 12th hour, or a last second change of heart, or an issue with the contract...something. It happens. No one bats 1.000 /shrug.
