I love the idea of Machado with a rental price tag (thinking guys like Domingo and maybe... Ortiz??, Keon).  I still want a hammer at pitcher to compliment Jr.  

If Machado were open to extension talk, that would be fun.  

Adding Machado even as a rental would be a lot of fun.  Dude is having a really good season on a bad team.

Still hoping they add another pitcher.  Guerra and Chacin have overachieved and the rookie phenom is well, a rookie.  Anderson and Davies and Suter cannot be trusted at least not at this time. 

The Shift

"I think it gets blown out of proportion when people say, 'Just hit a ground ball to short.' You can't just take a 98 mph cutting fastball in on your hands and do that. Let's just say I sell out tonight, and I try it four times. The likelihood of me hitting four straight ground balls to short and ending up 4-for-4 are very slim. If I succeed once or maybe twice, at best I'm going to go 2-for-4 with two singles, where if I just play the game, I might go 2-for-4 with a homer and a double. It makes no sense to me.

People make it sound like a shift is something that started the last few years.  Hell, they used a shift against Ted Williams in the 1940's and 50's.  And as great a hitter as he was, better than anybody in the game today, he had trouble beating it too.  Read his autobiography, he talks all about it.

Shouldn't we have a trade rumors thread? I mean, the Crew is a front runner for Manny Mach?

It would be interesting to find out what they offered, but I am sure that the Brewers brass is smart enough to keep that as much a secret as they can.  I'm thinking 1 guy of the triumvarate of Peralta, Burnes, and Hiura is the centerpiece of what they offered.

What if we named that thread "trades" and it was still on the front page if you were capable of scrolling?

Would that ****ing satisfy you?
