    He's still a rental relief pitcher. I really don't think we could expect more than what we got.

    The Cubs were willing to move Candelario for a reliever. The Astros gave up Teoscar for Liriano and cash and they seem to seem him as a reliever. By those standards the return for Smith is pretty light on paper. Seems like Shatkins wanted to accomodate the player and also use inside knowledge of the Indians system to target potentially undervalued players.

    Yes I suspect Pannone may have more potential than the 'rankings' would suggest. If nothing else, maybe he can be a successful lefty reliever. Smith has previous history with Shapiro and the Indians between 2009 and 2013. He already suggested in an interview post trade that a return to the Jays in 2018 is a possibility. Trading Smith to the Indians during this difficult time with his mother's unfortunate situation is great for the Jays in building some goodwill among the MLB player fraternity.

    Justin Wilson also has another year of control.

    When we traded for Mark Lowe, we gave up Rob Rasmussen, Jacob Brentz, and Nick Wells, and Lowe was having a better season compared to Smith. There's only so much you can get for a non-elite rental reliever coming off injury. I don't think the return is all that light.

    Alford left the game today with a possible injury. His wife tweeted he is okay though.

    Foley is such an enigma this season.

    Speaking of hot, you should check out Joe Siddall's son, Brett, at milb.com. He has been on fire for quite a while in the High A league at Stockton, in the Oakland organization. We're talking 21 for 39 in his last 10 games, with 14 ribs. Brett Siddall's now leading the league in OPS and slugging, and is third in average at .320.

    I don't completely understand the love Verdugo gets.

    What's not to love? A corner OF who can hit .275 with 15 HR and 10 SB!

    He does have an elite OF arm though, apparently.
