not an ideal situation tho. Wouldn’t his last start be in Houston? The Astros have every incentive to blow Gibson up, possibly even try to injure him. They would do anything to keep us down. I wouldn’t start him. I’d just pit him in bubble wrap until the deadline.
He has made three starts against Houston this year, and in 19 innings his ERA is under 2.00. 4 runs allowed in 19 innings.

"In other Giants trade rumblings, Slusser reports that the Cardinals and Rangers have had scouts recently watching the Giants, so some potential trade chips on those teams (if St. Louis indeed decides to sell at the deadline) could be on San Francisco’s radar. On the pitching end, Kyle Gibson, Kwang Hyun Kim, or even longtime Cardinal Adam Wainwright stand out. Slusser notes that the outfield is a target area for the Giants, so Rangers slugger Joey Gallo would be a major fit."

Congratulations to the Rays and Twins for being smart enough to make their deal early.

Here is an interesting and humorous note from Scott Lucas' report today.

"Over the last 30 days, Blaine Crim (11 HR, .828 slugging percentage) and Miguel Aparicio (10 HR, .842) are the league's best power hitters. Aparicio's season-long slugging percentage of .586 ranks only behind Yohel Pozo's .627 in the system. There's a sentence I never imagined writing in any year, much less 2021."

At Triple-A, Curt Terry doubled in his first at-bat & then was removed from the game. It is not injury related. It is expected that Terry will join the Rangers tomorrow in Houston. Good for that kid.

After sitting out the last two games Foscue was back in the lineup tonight.

Two names to remember from the Down East club are, Marc Church, a relief pitcher with 37 strikeouts in 21.1 innings, and Angel Aponte, an OF who has done nothing but hit the ball very well in his two partial seasons while stateside.

I don't think they are going to be able to keep CrIm, Foscue, and Aparicio at Hickory for much longer. They should be bound for Frisco before much longer.

The Padres are said to be interested in Lyles.
