⚾ Major League Baseball (MLB)



C’est les soldes chez les Padres.

Après Shields aux White Sox il y a quelques temps on a maintenant Melvin Upton Jr. qui part aux Blue Jays.

Mais aussi :
Marlins acquired RHPs Andrew Cashner, Colin Rea, Tayron Guerrero and cash considerations from the Padres in exchange for RHPs Jarred Cosart, Carter Capps and Luis Castillo and 1B Josh Naylor.

Voilà voilà hein, San Diego va tanker c’est clair et net.

Sinon y’a aussi Eduardo Nunez des Twins qui file aux Giants (vent de panique chez SF, ils perdent tout le temps en ce moment)


Ils ont osé séparer les Uptons. :mott:

EDIT : Je suis con, Justin est à Detroit maintenant non ? :hoho:


Oui :hoho:


Les rumeurs de trade deadline c’est nawak, les Rangers sont annoncés en position sur presque tous les pitchers de la ligue limite :hoho:

En tout cas ça va bouger, la trade deadline MLB est toujours mouvementée. y’a déjà eu de gros moves y’a pas longtemps, on en verra peut-être un autre, Philly serait peut-être enclin à laisser partir Velasquez et la contre-partie sera énorme.



Brillant. :bave:


Ichiro a lâché du lourd aussi.


Ichiro comme au bon vieux temps, c’est qu’il a bientôt 43 ans quand même :papy:


Mark Melancon (closer) aux Nationals.
Gros plus.

[quote]The Nationals officially have struck a deal to acquire Pirates closer Mark Melancon, finally getting the late-inning upgrade they’ve been seeking. Southpaw Felipe Rivero is heading to Pittsburgh in return, with lefty pitching prospect Taylor Hearn rounding out the package.

The Nats have long been connected to the top of the relief market with incumbentJonathan Papelbon struggling to hold down the ninth. The Nats picked him up this time last year, but while he had at least gotten the job done despite declining peripherals, the results have been bleak of late. While the team chased Aroldis Chapman, it wasn’t willing to meet the high asking price. And the Nats also balked at the apparent requests of a top-tier prospect in exchange for top closers Andrew Miller and Wade Davis — each of whom come with future control.

Melancon, 31, unquestionably constitutes a significant upgrade, though the loss of Rivero means that the team has lost a high-powered lefty from its roster. Still, it’s hard to argue with the decision to plug an established late-inning arm into the mix. The Nats can still turn to another power southpaw in Sammy Solis as well as crafty veteran Oliver Perez. Taking the broader perspective, the club certainly got more than it might have hoped for when it acquired Rivero as part of theearly-2014 deal that brought backup catcher Jose Lobaton to D.C. in exchange for righty Nate Karns.

Interestingly, Melancon fits more the profile of Papelbon than of the other arms that D.C. reportedly targeted. He works in the 91 to 92 mph range with his average fastball and carries a swinging strike rate in the low-double digits. But as the now-aging Papelbon once did, Melancon has an increasingly lengthy record of pure excellence. Since coming to Pittsburgh in a seemingly minor trade, he has pitched to a 1.80 ERA with 8.3 K/9 and just 1.5 BB/9 across 260 1/3 innings. It has been more of the same this year, though Melancon’s typically outstanding groundball rate has dipped just below 50%. He currently sports a 1.51 ERA with 8.2 K/9 and 1.9 BB/9, right at his now-established rates.

For the Bucs, it’s surely tough to part with such an integral part of the team with contention still in sights. But the club faces something of an uphill road despite its 52-49 record, with a powerful Cubs team still pacing the division and several other quality clubs angling for a Wild Card berth. After losing two consecutive play-in games, Pittsburgh obviously felt it wasn’t worth passing on this opportunity — particularly since it still figures to have a solid combination of Tony Watson and Neftali Felizworking to close out wins.[/quote]


Les soldes continuent, Matt Kemp aux Braves !

[quote]Kemp: .262/.285/.489 line with 23 homers and 69 RBI in 100 games.
While Kemp’s defense and OBP will most likely continue to detract from his value, he’ll certainly add some power to a lineup that is currently bereft of home run threats outside of Freddie Freeman. He figures to play left field for the Braves while Mallex Smith is on the shelf, and the possibility of a Nick Markakis deal could open right field for Kemp in the long term. Given Atlanta’s rebuild and stockpiling of young talent, however, it seems reasonable to expect that they may eventually be open to moving Kemp themselves as a means of clearing way for a more youthful option to join Smith and Ender Inciarte in the outfield.[/quote]

Et …
On annonce Andrew Miller aux Indians :kermit: :kermit:
