Should I be excited?  Was hoping for Minor...lol 

He looks good, throws strikes and has a big arm but I'm honestly not sure what to expect with him in the 8th or 9th. He closed some for Texas and he is a FA at the end of the season.

Wasn’t he in Japan 18 months ago and sporting a 5 ERA last year?

Not to be outdone by Bauer’s antics, Yasiel Puig is currently involved in a brawl with the Pirates.

Very fair point. However, our top 10 is much better than most. A guy here at 8 might be another farm systems 3 or 4. Looks like a solid trade. I was higher on Allard than most even after his struggles. I just hate to see him go thats all. I am generally not a big fan of getting a guy for 2 months only its such a risk and to be honest Im cheap so.......

We're not getting him for only 2 months. Martin has years of team control left.

I like what I've looked up about Martin but did Allard really fall that far to where we used him to get a rental who isn't a back end guy?

Chris Martin isn't a rental. He's got years of team control left.

You have your young arm. Hope Allard treats you guys well. Look forward to seeing him pitch when the Braves sweep you guys in the World Series in the near future. 

Seems like a fair trade. You have a quality setup man and the Rangers get a above average prospect. I hope it works out for both teams.

He’s a rental. Already been confirmed by multiple parties including AA.

How is he a rental when he's only got 1.133 years of service time?

The 2-year deal he signed with Texas guarantees that he will be one.

I believe Amir Garrett should be suspended for the rest of the season!! This is not MMA! If he wants to join the MMA then more power to him but this ain't it.

Yeah. Apparently service time with him is irrelevant with the deal he signed with the Rangers after his stint in Japan. I was just looking at his service time.

Indians also get 19-year old 3B Victor Nova and  25-year old LHP Scott Moss. One prospect each from the Padres and Reds.

Franmil Reyes is a good get for Cleveland. And I like the deal for the Reds. They're trading nutjobs, but Bauer's a great player. Puig...not so much.

He has 43 strikeouts against four walks and sports an unholy ERA+ of 166. I could care less about any year but this one.

I've spent the last 20 minutes watching this on a loop. Garrett literally charged 10 guys. Not hyperbole.

Rather than punish him, MLB should have just let him fight all 10 guys for as long as he remained conscious. 

That's the stupidest thing I've seen in baseball in ages.

What’s the ERA + measure exactly

It normalizes for factors like stadium and league. An ERA+ of 100 is average. 125-130 means you're having a pretty good year. 150-160+ is Cy Young territory. For comparison, Mike Minor's ERA+ is 169 this year, while Justin Verlander is at 156 and Stroman is at 153. Martin's 166 is a sign of total dominance.

Those two teams have been at it a few times this year.  

Yeah, Dietrich is the causality of this. Garrett was remarkably composed and sincere in the clubhouse interview. He knew what he did was wrong and deserves stiff punishment, but the Reds were livid over the pitch near Dietrich's head. So, he stood up for his teammates. He's probably the most popular guy on the team now. The hitters know he has their back.

But that was so monumentally stupid.
