Hot take: The player on the Cubs the Mets should really be targeting is Craig Kimbrel
Craig Kimbrel was already on a Hall of Fame path and he's currently having his best season ever at the age of 33. It's really, really fun to watch.
Sources: #Mets are one the most “Aggressive” suitors for #Cubs Craig Kimbrel
#Dodgers trade deadline odds, per @SportsBettingAG

Meanwhile in Chicago, Craig Kimbrel puts 2 men aboard then goes strikeout, strikeout, strikeout. ERA down to 0.49. He’s struck out 47% of the batters he’s faced this season.
#Cubs phone is ringing off the hook in regards to closer Craig Kimbrel. There is no question IF a bidding war for his services is going to take place. It’s happening now. #HotStove🔥
Craig Kimbrel continues to be a fun option for teams as the trade deadline approaches
#Padres are still committed to Kimbrel deal with #Cubs, however they are trying to clear out cash in an attempt to climb below luxury tax while upgrading the roster. San Diego is working to package Eric Hosmer and Robert Hassell III. #Rangers are seen as a potential partner.
“There have been indications the Phillies would be willing to use (Spencer Howard) in a trade
The Phils have targeted Craig Kimbrel. The price is high and there are several teams in addition to the Phillies pursuing him”
Astros need Kimbrel hope they take him away from doyers
Prediction...to a 🏆
*Gallo - Hassell and Hosmer( they pay entire contract)
*Mad Max w/ 2/3 yr extension at $20 per ( $ saved from Hoz trade) for Gore or Camp and Lange/M.Thompson or E.Rosario
*Kimbrel for J. Mears + minor leaguer
on the bright side hopefully this pushes click off the cliff known as kimbrel mountain
With 86 hours left until the MLB Trade Deadline and Chaffy is gone. Kimbrel just picked up the win in relief. KB scored twice and reached base three times. Rizzo homered and drove in two. Javy walked it off and rowed.
Since he didn't play, does Ryan Tepera get traded tomorrow?😂 https://t.co/FMYJeVpD9P
Craig Kimbrel: future All Star.
If this isn’t a sign that we need Kimbrel, idk what is
Kimbrel was a free agent for months and now everyone wants him lol mans really stepped his game UP
At this point I’d be okay with trading the whole farm system for Kimbrel
Id be fine with trading for some mid bullpen pitchers at this point. Like we don't even need Kimbrel we just need some average to above average guys
As to the "Chafin shouldn't cost thaaaaaat much" tripe?
That is exactly what he cost.
Want a Tepera or a Kimbrel?
Adjust up or across. Want a Winkler? Adjust down.
If the @astros
don’t get Kimbrel or some bullpen help we genuinely don’t want a World Series. Raley has no business being in the MLB, go back to Korea
MLB trade deadline predictions:
▪️Joey Gallo to #Padres
▪️Kris Bryant to #Mets
▪️Starling Marte to #Phillies
▪️Trevor Story to #Yankees
▪️Eduardo Escobar to #WhiteSox
▪️Richard Rodriguez to #Dodgers
▪️Craig Kimbrel to #RedSox
Lmfaoo at least we’ll sign Kimbrel tomorrow
We should have Kimbrel warming up
Unfortunately the Sheriff is away to the A’s though and they reckon Kimbrel will be going out West too, but what a Javy reaction to the walk off hit!!!!
