I like Happ. The problem is they have to trade bats for arms at some point. I still don't think they are moving Schwarber, who should have been gone this past off-season. They are not moving Rizzo, Baez, Addy, Baez, or Zobrist. They shouldn't move Almora and I don't see them moving Heyward. Jon Jay doesn't get them anything in return. So that really just leaves Happ and Candelario to trade.

It was a good start to the home stand. They need to keep it going against the Brewers.

heyward is back from the dl but happ is staying in the majors, he's playing great so it makes sense

They have started hitting well. Arrieta with a solid performance. If Arrieta can get going it will be a huge boost to a rotation that has had issues.

Im trynna understand why almora jr plays so much.
Besides maddons maddoning lineups this year,
The cf position seems to be a weak position for us. Jon jay seems to he better than almora jr. an adequate replacement for fowler.
The way happ is playing its nice to think he can help us at that position or who knows become a star. Being a champion built from the ground up its hard to think we would be so deficient at a position. Its nice we were able to call up Happ one of our top prospects to help in a position of need.


It comes to mind that as the high draft picks stop coming in it will be more difficult to keep up the elite farm system.

We could always trade perceived mlb players like almora jr for prospects.
And make room for jon jay, Happ or even zobrist to help at centerfield.

almora's defense is great, that has a lot to do with it i think

looks like jay has been hitting well, almora started well but is cooling off

A very nice home stand. Now they need to take that on the road. I hope that last start by Arrieta was him getting going and not just a random good start between more bad outings.

All 3 games were painful to watch. On the other hand they are only 1.5 games out of first and they get the Padres next then 10 games at home where they appear to have left their bats.
