There are now officially too many stories to do a post on each, so let's just lump them all together. Here's what you need to know, 16 hours after the Fowler trade.
*David Schoenfield: The Rockies have no plan
*Jeff Sullivan: The Rockies are betting on Lyles getting better in the future
*Keith Law: The Rockies should have gotten more for Fowler
*Luhnow, on Fowler's numbers:
The way our forecasting models work, we put players into neutral
environments and project their performance in a neutral park. We feel pretty good that our projections are accurate and that
this player has a tremendous value for us.
*Drellich: The Astros aren't concerned about Fowler's injuries. The Crawfish Boxes agree.
*Drellich: Jordan Lyles does not feel like he was rushed to the Majors (this is something we will actually look at later today)
