You're probably right, but Hal will never commit to that. This Gallo move is a half-step toward trying to win. He's clearly better than what they have in the OF, but he's not going to help them against elite pitching down the stretch and in the post-season, should they get there.

Yankees already have an ace, a YOUNGER one at that. As long as he doesn't go to Boston or Tampa, let Max be. He's in the twilight of his career anyway and if he doesn't wanna play for the best franchise ever, screw him. NEXT...!

Well said Mike.

It has little to do with not playing on a big stage. I don't see him nixing Red Sox. I still maintain something significantly bad happen to him in NY.

MLB Rumors This afternoon 3:24 PM


Padres Close To Acquiring Max Scherzer



html_removed

3:24 pm: The teams have agreed on the players involved, pending medical reviews, according to Jim Bowden of the Athletic. Scherzer still needs to waive his no-trade rights, although recent reports suggested he’d be willing to do so to move to one of the NL West contenders.


3:12 pm: The Padres are nearing a deal to acquire Max Scherzer, reports Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic (Twitter link). Jon Morosi of MLB.com had reported the Friars’ efforts to land Scherzer were “intensifying” moments before Rosenthal. The deal is not yet complete, cautions Jon Heyman of MLB Network.


Assuming the deal eventually crosses the finish line, it’ll be the latest in a line of impact starting pitching acquisitions for San Diego that dates back to last summer. Within the past twelve months, the Padres have acquired Mike ClevingerYu DarvishBlake Snell and Joe Musgrove. They’re now on the verge of landing perhaps their most notable pitcher of all, a three-time Cy Young award winner who started for the National League in this year’s All-Star game.


Scherzer is one of the best pitchers of his generation, and the future Hall of Famer has continued to pitch at a level close to peak form. He’s tossed 111 innings across nineteen starts, working to a 2.76 ERA/3.59 FIP. He’s given up a few home runs (1.46 HR/9), but Scherzer’s strikeout and walk numbers are still among the game’s best. The eight-time All-Star has punched out 34.3% of batters faced while handing out free passes to a meager 6.5% of opponents. Among starters with 50+ innings pitched, only Jacob deGromTyler GlasnowPatrick Sandoval and Shane Bieber have generated swinging strikes at a higher clip than Scherzer’s 16.5% mark.


It’s the continuation of what has been a remarkable tenure in Washington. Signed to a seven-year, $210MM deal over the 2014-15 offseason, the right-hander entered today’s outing with a 2.80 ERA/2.91 FIP across 1223 innings for the Nats. It proved to be one of the most successful free agent investments in recent memory. Scherzer won back-to-back NL Cy Young awards in 2016-17. He was selected to the All-Star game six times, with the lone exception due to the cancelation of last year’s festivities. And Scherzer was integral to the Nationals 2019 World Series title, tossing 30 frames of 2.40 ERA ball during that year’s postseason run.


With Scherzer scheduled to reach free agency again this offseason, the Washington front office was faced with a decision — hold onto Scherzer in hopes of making a playoff push, or moving him to a contender for an influx of young talent. For a while, it seemed as though the Nats would play well enough that holding onto Scherzer was the obvious choice. They’ve struggled coming out of the All-Star Break, though, with a sweep at the hands of the Orioles seemingly sealing the team’s fate as sellers.


Washington sits at 47-54, fourth place in the National League East and seven games back of the division-leading Mets. They entered play today with just a 1.1% chance of reaching the postseason, in the estimation of FanGraphs. Nationals brass hasn’t traditionally been keen on trading away star players. Still, the deficit became too much to reasonably expect to overcome, particularly with Stephen Strasburg officially done for the season and star shortstop Trea Turner now out for the next-week plus after testing positive for COVID-19.

Maybe. Heyman just tweeted that the Giants, Dodgers and Red Sox are still in on Scherzer.


Anyone but the Sox, please

Gallo now Rizzo the FO really want to cement this team as an all or nothing type of team.

Rizzo is not an all or nothing hitter. Both players have been raved about by the analysts on the MLB Network.
