Except Adams might be as valuable as Gordon and is about 8 years younger.

I'd go with this too.

If you're Beane and you could have Samardzjia and Hammel when you got them

In 180 innings he's probably a #4 starter by bWAR

So Arizona basically salary dumped their two best players other than Goldschmidt today?

I'd say that deal doesn't have a centerpiece so much as three pretty good players

Considering the lack of bats available?

Someone ask him if it feels good to be smarter than Billy Beane for a couple days at least.

Correct, but it's not like the Rays make that trade for those two guys.

Maybe -- Marisnick really hasn't hit anything in the high minors.
Commented on Breaking News: Cardinals deal Allen Craig and Joe Kelly to Boston for John Lackey on Jul 31 2014, 4:36p
Huh -- Marlins traded Jake Marisnick, Collin Moran, and a pick for Jarrod Cosart and SS prospect Enrique Hernandez.
Commented on Breaking News: Cardinals deal Allen Craig and Joe Kelly to Boston for John Lackey on Jul 31 2014, 4:36p
Instead, we gave up Allen Craig, James Ramsey, and Joe Kelly

Franklin was a beast of a prospect at one time though. Still could be a really good player, his stock has really dwindled lately.
Commented on Breaking News: Cardinals deal Allen Craig and Joe Kelly to Boston for John Lackey on Jul 31 2014, 4:27p
I think my issue is that I really thought we'd dealt Craig and a prospect initially and that seemed about right to me

They didn't get Jackson.

Even if he didn't, he'd be 10-5 after this year anyway.

But where? Where do you upgrade offense?

I wouldn't sign Scherzer for what he turned down, much less what he'll get on the open market.

Austin Jackson

Yup -- all that makes a ton of sense to me.
Commented on Breaking News: Cardinals deal Allen Craig and Joe Kelly to Boston for John Lackey on Jul 31 2014, 3:36p
Hence, dealing Addison Russell.
Commented on Breaking News: Cardinals deal Allen Craig and Joe Kelly to Boston for John Lackey on Jul 31 2014, 3:34p
That's the word -- they'd have to give up two young arms and probably Austin Meadows in that deal.
Commented on Breaking News: Cardinals deal Allen Craig and Joe Kelly to Boston for John Lackey on Jul 31 2014, 3:33p
But I'm guessing none of those things are as valuable as David Price would be.
Commented on Breaking News: Cardinals deal Allen Craig and Joe Kelly to Boston for John Lackey on Jul 31 2014, 3:29p
Well, I did too, but that was before we traded away Joe Kelly.

I worry about that too.

Nope.

Kelly greases the wheels and gives them a nice cheap swingman who can pitch effectively at the back end of the rotation or in the bullpen.

I don't know why you would say that, Boston got back two major league players for a guy they basically had to trade.
Commented on Breaking News: Cardinals deal Allen Craig and Joe Kelly to Boston for John Lackey on Jul 31 2014, 3:11p
Lackey is far and away the better pitcher:

Brewers upgrade by trading for a guy who probably isn't going to play for them.

Are any of those guys ace starting pitchers?

Yeah -- I wasn't so surprised they traded Craig in this deal

Beckett is likely their 4th starter.

No, but hopefully it shores up the back end of the rotation.

SLG is pretty similar.

HBP's of that variety are indicative of poor control.

Go look at Masterson's age 26 & 27 seasons
Commented on Cardinals trade James Ramsey for Justin Masterson on Jul 30 2014, 9:33p
But it does allow for another long arm in the bullpen possibly, moving either Miller or Kelly there.
