Addition of Adam Warren would give NYY a little more flexibility to move one of their other starters (Pineda? Eovaldi) in a thin SP market.

Clubs talking with the Red Sox say they're still trying to do "something big." But for what high-end starter? Chris Sale? Sonny Gray? Mystery pitcher?

Here is scouting report on Gleyber Torres: Torres: Future All Star: Plus defender with good hitting instincts/advanced approach for age, improving offensive value....solid average hitter.....more power than people think 15-18 HR potential Great hand-eye coordination ..Avg runner but better underway, plus defender with plus arm. Cubs best prospect not in major leagues.

So when this Yankees, Cubs deal is completed today...this is what we'll know: 1. Cubs remain team to beat and favorite to win World Series as Chapman is a difference maker in post-season because of ability to shut down Bryce Harper, Daniel Murphy of Nats and lefty lineup of Giants. 2. Yankees got Cubs best prospect not in big leagues and potential future all star. 3. Yankees got far more for Chapman and I mean far more than what they gave up to get him. For more after it's official join us on Baseball Tonight 10 & 12.

Recently asked two AL talent evaluators about Red Sox top prospect Yoan Moncada's future position and got same answer: "Anywhere he wants." Dave Dombrowski doesn't typically regard any player as "untouchable," but indications are Moncada may be pretty close.

Twitter announces deal with MLB Advanced Media. Will stream ONE game per week. It's a start, but deal is so small.

Does this sum up the insanity of a baseball season? The Rangers went 6 weeks without losing 2 in a row, then went almost 4 weeks without winning 2 in a row. Until yesterday.
