Contreras was not available except for a blockbuster 

Why’d we pick up John Ryan Murphy then?

The two deals for Greene and Melancon are pretty sweet. 

We maintained alot of our future talent. 

Losing Wentz and Allard (in Martin Deal) are the two 'big losses', happy for Demeritte to be able to play his way up now.

I don’t love Melancon’s contract or the necrotic skin tissue found in his arm last year.  But he started off this year with 11 scoreless innings.  Time for another streak

He's in a streak right now. Since July 14th,  he's pitched 8 2/3 scoreless innings with 9 strikeouts and only three runners allowed. Giants fans are irate that they traded him. I'll be curious to hear how much of his contract SF is eating, though. He's certainly not cheap.

Injury protection. Gives us an MLB experienced backup at AAA should we need it.

And if Allard was buried, Wentz was really buried if we're honest...

Exactly. I know that today's going to be a bummer for K26, but we can't keep all of them.

7th - Melenchon

8th - Martin

9th - Greene

All 3 could cover any of those innings when one needs a rest too.

Even though we didnt add a SP, i am comfortable with what we have when playoff time comes around. Julio has earned a spot in the rotation for the post season and as long as Fried's blister issue doesnt come back i like him as our 4th guy.
