Source: #Astros are most comfortable with Zack Wheeler’s acquisition cost, among the possible rotation trade options. Houston’s farm system has thinned, constraining the team’s ability to land Bumgarner or Ray without giving up Kyle Tucker. @MLB@MLBNetwork
I love reports like this. I'm sure they're interested in Kieboom. I'm sure they're also interested in Trea Turner. If Washington trades Kieboom for a non-elite reliever like Greene, their management team should be fired directly into the sun.
1) Buster Posey, C, Grade A: No-brainer. All he needs is playing time.
2) Madison Bumgarner, LHP, Grade A-: Almost went with B+, but strikeout rates aren't everything. More concerned about dropping velocity. May still go with B+ eventually.
3) Thomas Neal, OF, Grade B: Solid all-around hitter, saw him in Arizona Fall League and he convinced me bat is for real.
4) Zack Wheeler, RHP, Grade B: I'm hesitant to give a grade this high to any high school pitcher without a pro track record, but I really like Wheeler.
Guest, I have a big favor to ask you. We've been working very hard to establish ourselves on social media. If you like/follow our pages it would be a HUGE help to us.
