When is the last time we won a trade with the Rays?

I don't think Richards/Anderson for Sanchez/Stanek was a loss. Gotta wait on Sanchez to be sure but that one doesn't seem to be the usual run away victory for the Rays.

After what seemed like baby steps to revamping this bullpen at the beginning of the offseason all of a sudden it's an intensely reloaded bullpen, almost overloaded, with big but good decisions still to be made. Excellent work Kim!

This is a very Rays trade, getting the most out of a guy for one season and then trading him while his value is high but I don't think this is a bad gamble from the Marlins... not every guy that the Rays trade high on becomes a complete bust, the Marlins must think this guy is good enough to keep it going and contribute in Miami. I like the move, good gamble.

I am loving our rotation and bullpen.

But yes, agreed... and oddly excited how it really picked up in the last week or so. Floro and Curtiss suddenly kicked the whole bullpen up a notch and it's awesome.

The Rays made another trade this morning too. Lol pitchers and catchers report and suddenly the Rays are like nah I actually don't like this team anymore.

Maybe they showed up out of shape. Curtiss is going to walk into Roger Dean with a huge beer belly.

One more point: I wanted Kintzler back because this bullpen didn't need key subtractions and to a lesser extent Boxberger for the same reason... but if the additions/replacements are Floro and Curtiss then ultimately we likely did upgrade since the new guys are younger and more sustainable in 2021.

So basically, the point we've been trying to make to certain people here, gotta wait until the offseason fully plays out to see how the finished product looks, and even then, the finished product is never truly finished.

But I'm very happy with how this offseason bullpen revamping ended up.

I keep wanting to change his name to John Curtis. It is like someone's keyboard was broken and the s entered twice while typing his name.

Remember when the Marlins signed Victor Victor Mesa and everyone doubled their first name for a while? Get ready for extra S's on everyone's name now!

There are already 2 S's in my last name. do I have to add a third?
