Indians getting Franmil Reyes, Puig, and Logan Allen. Decent haul for Bauer.

Hell yeah! The tigers should've gotten that haul for Boyd

I’m confused as to why the Padres would give franimal and Allen for trammel 

Because they have enough corner OF depth and Franmil should be a 1B/DH. Trammel has more real baseball upside. I wouldn't be so worried his AA numbers are lackluster. Still really young and toolsy.

and he's involved in the brawl ( a little bit anyway )

 

well Puig will most likely have a suspension when he lands in Cleveland.

He has pretty good feel for the Strike Zone also? Did the White Sox guys have that?

They wanted people to refer to it as the Allen (Alan) Trammell trade

Most Puigish thing ever?

 

After seeing the footage, and Garrett's reaction, one can only assume, he is heading to Cleveland also.

Victor Nova also going to the Indians. Not big names but it looks like they will complete the deal.

MLBTR saying some rookie baller named Victor Nova is reportedly going to the Indians as well.  I feel like the details are going to be corrected a few times before we get the final tally.

Fills need for CLE. They better hope their pitching comes back (Kluber, Carrasco).

CIN is acquiring Bauer, why? Kinda like the Mets move for Stroman. For next year? Castillo, Gray, Bauer not bad.

SD’s return seems real light for MLB talent. I think it was smart because they traded from depth and got a potential future CF. I don’t hate it. Just seems they could’ve gotten more (though we know corner infielders don’t bring much).

So is Franmil for sure heading to the land of Cleve?

Yeah it is really weird so far this trade deadline.  Less than a day to go and the only two "top" pitchers that have moved have been acquired by non-contenders.  Why Cleveland wants Puig of all people I have no idea as you would think an ace pitcher gets you more wins than a temperamental OF, but who knows.  SD stashing prospects sort of hints that they are going to make a big play for someone.

Puig is Bauer on roids attitude-wise.

Yes but he wouldn't be if the NL would grow up and have his true position available for him to play -- DH.

Poor Tito, he nearly got ulcers from babysitting Manny Ramirez (Manny being Manny) for years.  He thought he was through the worst and now Puig shows up on his doorstep.

So is this the complete story with this trade now because I thought it was SD who was the one really hot for Bauer.  So when I heard 3-team deal I assumed Cincy was being the middleman to get Bauer to the Padres in return for some really nice prospects.
