Oh yeah, they probably could swing a trade for Trout now. They'd have to say goodbye to Sanchez though.

Trout won't get traded simply because there is no equitable return for either side. Giving up what you'd need to get him is insane, but the Angels have the worst farm system maybe in history right now, so they need not only talent, but depth, which means bodies on top of bodies and lottery tickets galore on top of at least two established top-2 prospects/young players.

It's an impossible trade, but the Angels need to do something, retooling to compete in 2019 with Trout is insanity.

You should do what the cool kids are doing and build a new stadium/mixed-use development project in the suburbs that the team can draw rents from.

I really don't want Ron Washington managing the Braves. I've seen him manage in non-DH games.

Bud Black would be interesting though. I'm sure he'd be fired up those 19 games against the Nationals.

I think that's the most I'd be willing to offer at this time.

Well, unless you'd be tempted by a third piece like Braxton Davidson.

I don't think the Cards need a major overhaul. Move Wacha to the pen, let Weaver/Reyes battle for the 5th spot, and Lynn will be back, so that'll help the innings.

As for position players, I'm thinking Peralta/Adams will be on the trade block. Put Gyoroko at 3B, Carp at 1B, Wong at 2B, Diaz at SS. I'm thinking Grichuk moves to OF, Piscotty in RF, and new CF via trade.

Or Grichuk in CF, Cespedes in LF.

Washington interviewed for the Braves job, but he seems like a long shot.

Everyone says it's down to Snitker vs. Bud Black. I'd be fine with either one, although I would personally keep Snitker since all the players seemed to have attached to him very well. Black could probably run a better pitching staff though.

Not a lot of people are talking about this, but I'm pretty sure Roger McDowell is up for renewal too. He's been the Braves pitching coach since 2006 and seems to have done really well.
