If the Yankees get him, there needs to be a fucking investigation. I am sick of this.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

Yanks and Boston are both hot after him, last I read.  A large part of it is to keep the other one from getting him.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

I think the Dodgers step up and get him before all is said and done.

This is my impression as well.

I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, torture of Bud Selig.

That won’t change the fact that they’ll have to pitch Sonny Gray in the postseason.

Close to a deal, Nightengale says Dodgers, Kurkjian thinks Philly.

Astros close out with 4 games against the Orioles.  Feels like the Orioles are hardly going to be fielding a major league team by that point.  And the 3 games before are against the Blue Jays. 

Yankees end the season with 4 against Tampa and 3 against Boston.

Boston ends the season with the Orioles and Yankees.

If home field advantage comes down to the final weeks, I like the Astros chances. 
Boom!

Throw some salt over your shoulder and give Jobu his rum.

I’m reminded of one of my favorite baseball quotations—from a NYT article about the Mets one of those years in the late aughts when they blew a healthy lead in September and missed the playoffs entirely. A fan, leaving the ballpark, said: “It makes you feel so stupid for being happy all year.”

In a completely shocking development, the Orioles are apparently getting cold feet due to physicals in one of the prospects.

So maybe I, once again, should not get excited about Zach Britton?

Only if you like disappointment.

Is it ownership or the front office, or all of the above?

Trade is official. The return to the Orioles per Passan on Twitter:

The return to the Orioles for Manny Machado: OF Yusniel Diaz, 3B Rylan Bannon, RHP Dean Kremer, RHP Zach Pop and 2B Breyvic Valera.

Diaz is the only top-100 type. Kremer could be a dude. Bannon undersized 3B crushing in Cal League. Pop is a reliever, Valera 26-year-old in AAA.

Ownership, from all reports.
