Even at the time that move was baffling. To give up so much for a guy a) that age, b) with such a spotty track record, who is c) a knuckleballer to boot, was just horrible.

The Angels are so screwed with those two terrible contracts.

The raw tools are starting to turn into skills for this kid and he looks like he has the potential to be very, very good.

I understood the move but never liked it. It would have meant that the Jays would be committed to JP as their catcher. and couldn't believe that on top of D'Arnaud, Jays gave up Syndergaard as well...

Justin Upton since April 26:

31 GP, .209/.330/.336, 3 HR, 12 RBI.

But yeah, I was totally being ridiculous when I said I was seeing some flaws in his swing that were going to catch up with him after that ridiculous hot streak, and to call him an absolute beast was premature.

Everything about rangers pitching has been focused on yu and rightfully so. He has the best stuff in the game and is just a joy to watch. That said, equally important to the rangers is that Derek holland has finally found it. His stuff is also very good and he's started throwing a very very good change up(he was reported to have a plus change up in the minors but essentially quit throwing it til this year. He's still only 26 years old, is a lefty with easy mid 90s velocity that he maintains, a good slider and a good change. He has a 4-1 k/bb on his peripherals support his sub 3 era(his fip is 255). He's also signed cheaply for the next 5 years. So happy to see this

Atlanta continues their ownage of the Nats this season. Took 2 of 3 from them and we're now 7-3 against them this year. Of course it's hard to call a 28-29 Nationals team good. They're clearly not the same team they were last year. Their bullpen is awful and outside of Harper (who's now on the DL) their lineup isn't very consistent or good.

Got offered Justin Upton for Mike Minor in a fantasy league. Seems like I should pull the trigger as a buy low/sell high but I really like Minor. What do you guys think?

Ive got good outfield talent and depth btw.
