Not basing it on his major league performance, which is a ridiculously tiny sample. Giolito is the classic stuff before results guy, in my view. The type of prospect scouts love, but where the results never seem to translate. His peripherals got progressively worse as he climbed up the ladder. There are not many recent examples of front line pitchers who had such meh results in the minors.

That said, the White Sox have one of the two best pitching coaches in the league, so they may be able to fix him. It's a good trade for Chicago, but I wouldn't be surprised if a couple of these prospects end up as relievers.

That's fair. I will say that, when it comes to the young starters we've acquired in the last two days, Kopech excites me more than Giolito. I think Kopech is going to be a big star. Knock on wood.

The more I think about it, the more I hate the Chapman signing. For baseball reasons as well, but mostly for the obvious ethical reasons. I fucking hate the way professional teams deal with domestic violence, which somehow seems (for them) better than steroid use.

"I'm apologizing because of the use of the gun" still pisses me off. What a fucking troll that guy is.

Watching him blow saves is a rare treat.

I'm *so* happy he's no longer a Cub, I can't tell you. HATED having to be grateful to him for any of that.

With all the young kids, the Yankees are as fun as they've been in a long time now. But Chapman takes most of the pleasure away.

It shouldn't surprise me that the team would do it. After all, this is a team whose President basically said non-rich people shouldn't be allowed to sit in the best seats. Their moral compass is pretty clear.

A shame to lose a guy like Fowler to your archenemy. Although I guess it's tit for tat after taking Heyward from the Cardinals.

Hopefully Fowler will underperform like Heyward.

Wine Glass Joe won't be able to dress the team up as women, pimps, or members of the YMCA on road trips anymore.

Saw this headline on my Facebook feed:

"Watch Alex Rodriguez's daughter pull off a classic bat flip after taking her dad deep"

Surely there's a better way to word this.

Raines, Bagwell, and IRod for 2017 HOF.

I never thought Raines would get in.

He's a shoo-in next season and so is Vlad. TRY EXERCISING SOME PATIENCE BEFORE SOMETHING HORRIBLE HAPPENS TO YOU.

And, fucking psyched for Raines, awesome news.

He was so close though! I will no longer be a patient baseball fan. I don't need to be anymore.
