We Are Not Getting Cole Hamels

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on July 28, 2015

The Rumor Mill is churning fast and furious during times like these and I just want it to be over. Too many fake-o rumors and then when something does happen, like Tulo for Reyes, absolutely NO ONE was *rumoring* it.

And then you have teams literally making shit up to jack up the price for players they’re selling off. I don’t think reputable info guys like Ken Rosenthal are out there making things up. But when he tweets out that “the Dodgers, the Astros, the Giants, and the Rangers” are in on “so and so” it’s just him casting the widest net possible and listing off a bunch of teams he reads from the standings.

So the Giants are in on Cole Hamels? Riiiiight. Who are they gonna trade? Susac and Panik? The problem with all the rumors is the reality of them that is long on scarce.

Now watch, about 2 minutes after I hit “publish” on this thread the Giants will have acquired Cole Hamels….

    Arias, si; Adrianza no. The latter is not even Eugenio Velez-caliber.

      Gray with the CG shut-out.

        Well, I guess the CG part was redundant.

    Cain did what he used to do early in hos career and that was get 2 strikes on a guy and get way too much strike zone. Most to the hits he gave up early in the game were in 1-2 counts.

    “I am waiting for James to chime in regarding the “Posey is a better hitter when he’s not catching. It’s not a theory, it’s statistically backed.” line in the article.”

    I apologize for the extended wait. The Pavlovian “statistically backed” received wisdom is certainly worth a chuckle. 🙂
