    Straw really grew on me too......I won't like this trade at all if it's just Chas taking over.

    Highly unlikely Twins traded Berrios without trading Buxton. Highly unlikely Astros traded Straw without adding a CF…

    Straw has been very, very good recently and was trending up. Hmmm.

    If that's it then WTF. Straw had some unique intangibles with his speed creating havoc.

    If no corresponding move for a CF then this trade has me scratching my head.

    If this was just to opena spot for mckormic I don't get it.
    Couldn't we just not play straw as much and use him as a pinch runner in the post season?

    Nope. We just traded a good CF for an unproven, below average reliever

    Seems like a downgrade, anyone got details on the RP contract situation? Think we had Straw for 3 more years and we've only seen improvement this year.
