He has a point. They should have definitely traded Jesus for Syndergaard. That would have been a much better deal for us.


Trading a God for a God would be fair and fill a need for both teams.

The thing is, aside from the Reds who are a little ways back we have done more to this point to improve our team than the Cubs or Cards and hopefully we make a move or two more here shortly.

That Stearns didn't make this deal is a fireable offense.

You’d think AZ would let Greinke go for nothing if a team were willing to eat his contract.

Imagine if we just got a reliable 2020 rotation arm for Jesus Aguilar. If we did, that's phenomenal.

For the Braun to 1st vs lefties talk. I get it, but it still doesn't solve much. You'd just be playing Gamel or Grisham vs lefties. Granted, my eye test seems to think Gamel holds his own vs lefties better than Shaw/Thames but still you're playing a lefty no matter how you slice it.

More I think about the happier I am with this, I'd guess they were very close to DFA Jesus not long ago so to get this back is quite a pull. When I saw the trade happened I assumed some minor league flyer types, so was happy to see someone who can help now.

Add one more pitcher, starter or relief, at minimal cost and see what happens.

I understand that the Rays wanted RH power due to too many of their bats being lefty.

Interesting question given the 40-man crunch if Aguilar is even on TB's roster next year and/or if he's non-tendered.

There should be a place for him as platoon 1B/DH but he's probably the last priority position player. Depends if Yandy is healthy and is able to take the 3B/1B/DH role and they have Brosseau up all year.

Yes, underrated post.

How can Stearns or anyone else make a deal if the Mets don't want to trade him?? Give NY Yelich in return??

I've devised a way we can Strasburg and Alonzo and we wouldn't have to give that much up. - George Costanza

I liked Aguilar a lot more than most. But RH 1b-DH types who aren't playing regularly don't command a big return. I think the AL is Aguilar's ideal location. I give the trade a C-minus. Faria looks very similar to a number of guys they already have but they need healthy arms right now so he seems to fit the bill.

Faria is controllable, and looks like he has some upside. Interesting bullpen piece, although he did start 14 games for the Rays in 2017 and was very effective. Not so successful in 2018, which I assume prompted the bullpen shift (plus, Tampa gets more creative with their pitching staff than most clubs). I’m intrigued.


Where is the upside? 5.73 FIP this year, 5.08 last year. Walks a ton of guys and isn't anywhere close to being a closer. Another hugely under-whelming move by Stearns.

A guy with upside for a player who was likely a goner after this year, if not sooner. It's a minor move. Unbunch them undies.

It's almost like he pitched over half of his career innings in 2016 with pretty decent results (80 ERA-/97 FIP-).

Is there a reason you're intentionally leaving that out?

I can answer that ... every post this guy makes is critical of the Brewers. Every one of them.

Sad to see Jesus go but I think it's a good move. Upside with Faria in the bullpen makes it better and Jesus can fit in at DH in Tampa.

His stats have been so all over the place it is really hard to know what he is. His AAA stat line this season is pretty good and shows at least some upside. Not really going to judge him by 10 IP in the majors in 2019. He just looks like a failed starter who might be a good RP at this point. Considering we traded a guy who isn't even playing full time and is a negative defensively I don't see this as some sort of huge deal. I can't really give this trade anything but a C for a grade.
