Also, notice that Banda's twitter only says Diamondbacks to *present*, not *future*.

J.D. Martinez to Arizona is reportedly done. Still waiting on Tigers confirmation and what they are getting back

Trade official. No cash in deal. #DBacks assume balance of Martinez’s $11.75M salary.

It's not a bad trade from a value standpoint, but I'm guessing the Martinez market was less hopping than I expected.

3B/SS Dawel Lugo was #DBacks’ No. 4 prospect, per @MLBPipeline. SS Sergio Alcantara No. 15. SS Jose King not in top 30. All go to #Tigers.

This seems like a very light return for JD Martinez even as a rental; I don't think Arizona gave up any of their... http://www.espn.com/espn/now?nowId=21-0679099722480230219-4

Avila said Lugo was the main piece for them. Third baseman. Good glove, good bat. Going to Erie. Two years away.

JD did a pretty emotional interview in the dugout. I feel for the guy, he really didn't want to leave.

Who knows on the prospects. Everyone thought Ray sucked too and he turned out pretty well for the next team. Can't forget the $5 million too, it might help them pass on another weak deal.

Going to be really sad if they let go of Verlander for a small return.

Here's to hoping in 3-4 years we are competitive buyers again.

If the best prospect is the 3B at AA, that puts him in the majors in 1-2 years. Time to either move Casty to the OF or trade him just as he gets expensive.

Fuck you Tigers. I wish I didn't love you. Bitch ass fucking slut dick holes.

Next three years it's gonna be easy picking up cheap secondary tickets in the summer. So, at least I got that going for me.

Fuck you Tigers.

SHOCKULAR:
Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Looks like Red Sox are looking for a 3rd basemen. Not sure they'd take Nick. The way he's hitting right now probably want to hold onto him.

The Alcantara kid puzzles me. Who gives a damn about another slick Fielding middle infielder with good glove and no stick. MLB is littered with them. There wasn't a project with some upside available? A pitcher with a big arm, a kid with a big bat?
