And what about Carlos Beltran?
He gotta go too.

Luhnow needs a lifetime ban. I would like to see somebody petition MLB to blacklist him permanently.

Beltran is gone from the Mets.

Now reports that Altuve and Bergman were wearing devices that signaled to them what pitch was coming.  Apparently it’s Why Altuve didn’t want his jersey ripped off when he hit the walk off against the Yankees in the playoffs.

This could get interesting.

If that’s true we are talking lifetime bans for all these guys. It’s not interesting. It’s ridiculous. If it’s true get rid of them. And Astros owner still has to pay their salary to MLB charity programs.

Not only should all involved be banned, but Houston should be banned from participating in any playoffs for some period of time.

I think if Houston has/will clean house then the city of Houston should not be punished due to loss of money, etc from anything a revamped team might produce.  I think so type of probation until the owner can show he has 'fixed' the problem that might involve the entire replacement of every player or workers around that probably had knowledge of what was going on. I have no qualms about banning those major figures involved from baseball..but don't punish the town.

Jeter falls one vote short of unanimous election to the HOF.  One vote.

I like him but I'm mildly shocked that he would have been THAT close to unanimous. Stats wise it is possible to argue that Jeter was a bit overrated. I would disagree with that if pressed to argue it (his intangibles outweigh any statistical shortcomings IMO) but there is a fair argument that baseball fans (but apparently not many writers) would at least be able to intelligently argue.

Marte is traded to Arizona for 2 prospects: a RH pitcher picked in last year's draft at #33 and a 19 year old SS from the Dominican Republic.

Basically sounds like for an old catcher's mitt and bag of batting practice balls.

PIRATES AND DIAMONDBACKS MAKE THREE-PLAYER TRADE
The Pittsburgh Pirates today acquired infielder Liover Peguero and right-handed pitcher Brennan Malone from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for outfielder Starling Marte and cash considerations. The Pirates will also receive an additional capacity in its 2019-2020 International Signing Bonus Pool, allowing them to spend an additional $250,000 in this year’s International Signing Period. The announcement was made by Pirates General Manager Ben Cherington.

The 19-year-old Peguero entered today ranked as Arizona’s fifth-best prospect according to FanGraphs (No. 7 by Baseball America) in a deep Diamondbacks minor league system. During his second professional season in 2019, the right-handed hitting Peguero hit a combined .326 (74-for-227) with 11 doubles, five triples, five home runs, 38 RBI and an .866 OPS in 60 games with Hillsboro and Missoula. He was also named a 2019 Pioneer League mid- and post-season All-Star after hitting .364 with seven doubles, three triples, five home runs, 27 RBI and a .970 OPS in 38 games with Missoula.

The 19-year-old Malone, regarded as one of the top prep arms in the 2019 Draft, was the 33rd overall selection out of IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL, where he went 11-0 with a 0.27 ERA (51.0ip/2er), a .132 batting average against and 69 strikeouts in 11 starts as a senior in 2019. He entered today ranked as Arizona’s 10th-best prospect according to FanGraphs (No. 9 by Baseball America).

During his first pro season in 2019, Malone went a combined 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA (8.0ip/4er) in seven games (three starts) between the Arizona League Diamondbacks and the short-season Hillsboro Hops of the Northwest League.

“We’re excited about adding two young players of this caliber and the opportunity we’ll have to help them continue to grow.” said Cherington. “In addition, we now have a greater ability to acquire impact type talent in this year’s international free agent market.

“We have a foundation of talent in Pittsburgh and in our system that we feel will be a key part of our success. We also know that we need more of it if we are going to realistically be able to compete deep into September and October,” added Cherington.

Neither player will be seen in Pittsburgh for 5-6 years given the way the Pirates require young players to play at each and every level in their system. It says how bereft the minors are that the pitcher automatically rose to the top of their prospect pool.

Now if the Pirates are smart, they'll play Reynolds in CF and mover Frazier to LF opening space to move Newman to 2nd and install Tucker at SS. Despite his gold glove nomination, Frazier is not a good 2B, but he's shown the ability to play a decent OF.

I for one will NOT miss Marte no matter what happens. He was dumb and lazy. Didn’t care at all about winning. Good riddance.

I wonder if they will be looking to move Josh Bell?
