Wilson drew interest from about a dozen teams over the last month. The Nationals, Astros and Dodgers were all known to be pushing hard for Wilson in advance of tomorrow’s non-waiver trade deadline, but some of those clubs were wary of meeting Detroit’s high asking price. Baltimore’s Zach Britton and San Diego’s Brad Hand represent the top alternatives to Wilson on the board and could also be moved by the deadline.
Wilson, who turns 30 next month, owns a 2.68 ERA and 12.3 K/9 in 40.1 innings for Detroit this season. His trade value is aided by his contract situation, as he is owed $2.7 million this year and is under control for 2018.
Chicago will likely utilize Wilson as a setup man for Wade Davis this season and slide him into the closer role if Davis departs in free agency over the winter. The trade is the fourth major left-handed deadline addition in the last two years for the Cubs, who acquired Mike Montgomery and Aroldis Chapman on their way to a World Series last year and kicked off trade season with the acquisition of Jose Quintana earlier this month.
My stomach feels like I ingested Judge and Stanton and now they’re having a ladder match in there. Help.
I guess you’re right. In moderation, it’s perfectly fine. I guess I’m just a little disenchanted with the guy screaming at me over the PA about every home run.
Yeah, this announcer absolutely sucks. He just called one of the flamingos on the Marlins dinger machine a peacock. Get your goddamn birds straight, man. Also — none of these little kids can field Wholesale NBA Jerseys a baseball. If I were their parents I’d be mortified. Cute, shmute. Give me some athletic Real Cheap Jerseys prowess.
