  • This is a shame. Mike’s a good coach. Lebo did not have the guys this year and still made the semifinals. What more do people want?
    "They basically said, ‘We’re not going to support you.’ That’s all I needed to hear. I told them I would rather move on to something else." https://t.co/8bKxId0Ei1

  • RT @MaxWildstein: Per @Ackert_Kristie, #Yankees were in discussions with #Indians about Corey Kluber and Trevor Bauer, but they had found Cleveland’s price for them to be too steep, which confirms what I have been reporting. NYY hasn’t wanted to give up their top prospects. https://t.co/29KgFZ13Ak

  • Huntington on whether Pirates will take someone in the Rule 5: "“It’s tough to carry a Rule 5 pick when you’re competing. It’s that much tougher to carry two. That said, it is an access to talent. We’ll see how the draft plays out. We have some guys we’re talking about."

  • Neal Huntington on Thursday's Rule 5 draft: "“We feel like we’ve protected the players that we needed to protect in our minds."

  • More Hurdle on shifts: "There was a level of analytics that some teams were so far ahead of the curve that they were benefitting from it. So I'm curious on what's the next smart play. And for me, elimination, I don't know if that's ever the best smart play."

  • Hurdle on banning shifts: "If there ever gets a day where they ask me what I think, and there may be, I don't have it in my DNA to say no, we can't have the shifts."

  • Hurdle said he sees a path to contending if Cervelli is traded. "It wouldn't be the same team, obviously. It would be a different skill set. But I think it's still one that would of contention."

  • Hurdle on Erik Gonzalez: "I have coaches that have seen him play, and are very excited for him to bring him to the organization with an opportunity to be a shortstop. The opportunity to compete for a position."

  • Hurdle on Lonnie Chisenhall: "He's at a time in his career where he also feels an edge and a want to is probably maybe a little bit -- there's more traction to it than before, because he's been off the field some. When this man has been on the field the bat has played."

  • Hurdle knows Rick Eckstein through Davey Johnson, coached Jacob Cruz in the Rockies organization. "Sometimes a different voice does make a difference. Sometimes different skill sets can help and make a difference."
