Looks like Luis Arraez is being traded to the Padres for a reliever and 3 prospects.

Did not even have to give up a Top 10 prospect for him.

We'll admit it: every time the Padres make a significant trade, we think about what a veteran scout with a rival team told us several summers ago: A.J. Preller is particularly skilled at dealing away prospects he doesn't like. One look at this trade and we must concede that scout knew what they were talking about.

Arraez's exact value is tough to nail down because of an archaic skill set. He's more dependent on singles than pop stars in the streaming era. He's not a skilled or versatile defender; he's not a bopper; and he's not even a walker. He'll spray the ball around the diamond and run up a high batting average, but that's the extent of his contributions, for better and worse.

Maybe they will be on YouTube now.

Bailey's can't wait on getting back on those cable networks as their bankruptcy filing depends on it so those cable companies called their bluff.

I'm ready to send Edouard Julien to AAA with the understanding that he can't come back until he quits looking at strike 3.

Woods Richardson tosses 6 shutout innings and the good guys win 3-1.

It's awful. He heard his eye is eee-leet and his judgement is sooo clouded.

He is so selective at which pitch/es he is swinging at even with 2 strikes.

He needs to learn to foul off those close ones. Until the electronic strike zone is implemented, if you have 2 strikes and it's close you better be hacking.

He swung and missed at his last strike 3. Hope you're happy now. So much more productive.

He leads MLB in looking at strike 3. He's done it several times with runners in scoring position, which irritates me more than just about anything else in baseball.

Almost as much as it irritated you to watch Joe Mauer watch ball 4.
