"We've got his back. We've got to play better as players and that's what you have to focus on," he said. "When things aren't going good or going well, it's easy to look around and see what everybody else is doing or where everybody else is screwing up."The only way we're going to improve as a unit is if we all kind of look in the mirror and find ways to improve individually and make sure that we're the best version of ourselves individually whe[......]

    Frieri-for-Grilli isn't the only straight-up swap that makes sense

  • Jason Grilli faced 93 batters for the Pirates this year, allowing 22 hits and 11 walks while striking out 21 and posting a 4.87 ERA. Ernesto Frieri faced 133 batters for the Angels, allowing 33 hits and nine walks, with 38 strikeouts while posting a 6.39 ERA. On Friday, they were traded straight up for one another, a swap of deposed closers in which both teams hoped that a change of scenery might prove rejuvenating.It wasn’t totally a trade of equal parts, as Frieri turns 29 in July and will not be eligible for free agency until after the 2016 season, while Grilli is 37 and will be a free agent at the end of this season. But then, the Angels are tracking toward the playoffs this year, with a 91% chance by Baseball Prospectus’ calculations, while the Pirates have a 20% chance of October baseball with a young core that bodes well for contending in years to come. It’s a lot more exciting to see trades like this than it is to see fire sale-type deals like everything that will be talked about with David Price, Jeff Samardzija, and others up until the July 31 non-waiver traded deadline. Will we be lucky enough to see more “challenge” trades? In a world with two wild cards in each league, bringing more teams into the pennant races and lowering the number of straight-up sellers, you might think so, but it’s important to remember that not only can baseball be slow to pick up on trends, general managers are wary of getting the bad end of such trades.With that in mind, here are three s[......]
