They aren't getting deGrom.  I'm interested in J.A. Happ. Worked before, think it can work again.

I’m not sure Happ is much of an improvement over what they have. They already have a whole rotation of plus 4 ERA guys. Yes he has 10 wins, but he’s 35 and has struggled of late. Maybe he does help, but I can’t see giving up young talent for him. I would only go after a legit top of the rotation guy, and there just aren’t any out there minus deGrom. I do think you’re right that landing him is a pipe dream.

Pirates have reported interest in Rangers closer Keone Kela.

Why did Dickerson leave the game?

Why was my first thought, “crap they traded Dickerson”? Lol

I guess that would indicate they’re looking to move Vasquez?  They could probably get a nice little haul for him as almost every contender is looking for bullpen help.

I would think they are looking to get Vazquez a set-up man in that scenario. 
If they were 10 under, I'd probably trade Vazquez though.
