    How much did Rizzo overpay by this time?

    Gotta be the Nats, right?

    Didn’t Quintero miss time last season due to injury?

    Interesting move. I wonder where they are heading to.

    Bourgeois at his best is not better than Bernadina.  I hope it isnt the Nats.

      Bourgeois’ OBP last year was .323, better than Bernadina’s .301. Safe to say he’d be an upgrade, especially with the 31 SBs and the .294 BA, even if it may be a little empty.

      • Bret Wask 3 years ago

        Sorry Nick, but 250 ABs does not make someone a better hitter.  Not only does Bernadina have a better MLB track record, his minor league stats have also been better.   

        MLB: .668 OPS vs .631
        AAA: .819 OPS vs .753
        AA: .777 OPS vs .693

        It isn’t really that close.

    Not Q!

    Hard core Astros fans will be disappointed about Q being dealt. His hitting prowess isn’t much to get excited about, but it is fun to watch him behind the plate.

    Let’s see what Lunhow got!

    CBS says Royals.

    Bourgeois huge upgrade over Bernadina, though?  Eh, I guess I’m on the outside looking in as a Braves fan…

    Bernadina is more of a 4th OF. He has had so many chances I love the Shark but he is better at the corners. Bourgeois is a CF. 

  10. Quintero to royals
    Bourgeois to nats

    2 seperate trades ?

    If Quintero to nats than jesus flores is involved.

    • ImperialStout 3 years ago

       “Jesus Flowers” is a good band name.

    • dbreer23 3 years ago

      My bet is Quintero and Bourgeois to the Nats, Flores to the Royals…not sure who goes to HOU, though.

  11. In this case the mystery team is so mysterious, full details will not be known and until Jason Bourgeois and Humberto Quintero show up on a different team than the Astros at some point during ST.

    Bourgeois has, basically, no power, so the slugging part of that equation knocks him down in comparison.  But his avg and OBP are higher.  And with superior defense and speed, it’s an upgrade.  Not a magnificent one, but I’ll take it.

    • Bret Wask 3 years ago

      Bernadina actually has a higher OBP everywhere except MLB and there he is only behind by .003.  I am not sure why Bernadina’s ability to hit for MUCH more power wouldn’t give him a benefit in your equation.  

      Power counts.  Extra base hits are unequivically better than singles and BBs.  Neither of them have produced many BBs at the major league level (as their OBP is virtually identical), but at every level Berndina has unequivocally out hit Bourgeois.

     But why get Lannan if you’re going to suck anyway?  To flip him later?  Trade those two for some 20 year olds.

  14. dbreer23 3 years ago

    Welp, guess I was dead-wrong on that one…lol.  I’ll stick to my day job…

  15. ImperialStout 3 years ago

     That would be pointless for the Astros. 

  16. Bret Wask 3 years ago

    As a Nats fan, I would be excited about getting Lannan’s $5M off the book any way possible. 

  17. ImperialStout 3 years ago

     Agreed, but I don’t see this being the package they get.  I mean, it would be good for DC, but not for Houston… Their new front office is smarter than that.  Or are they?

  18. BVHjays 3 years ago

    Happens all the time. I remember a big report a year+ ago that the Jays were acquiring Mike Napoli… didn’t quite turn out to be the big news a half hour later.

  19. nlewiss 3 years ago

     Two part-timers for a pretty solid lefty starter? I dont see how that wouldn’t be good for houston. This is a team going with Weiland and Livan in their final two spots as is. What’s wrong with spending a little cheddar to get some stability at the back of the rotation?
