    1. I think that seems most likely. He was pitching pretty good in the weeks before the trade so I can't see any reason to blame the Giants for anything. If he has been hiding it, at least he's a FA after the season so hopefully the door doesn't hit him on the way out and re-aggravate his bicep.

        1. Not anymore!

          I would like to chalk it up to "these things happen", but this is something that Dyson said had been going on for a while, so I'd be surprised if the Giants didn't know about it.

          Hard to know at that point if the Twins messed up on their checks or if the Giants actually hid something, but I think it's likely that the Giants knew enough about the injury that they decided they would rather trade him and the higher injury risk instead of keeping him around for another year.

      1. In off-season trades, yes. For mid-season trades, at the deadline in particular, there often isn’t enough time, so teams exchange medical records only. That’s why A.J. Preller was able to trade injured pitchers to the Red Sox & Marlins.

  1. Hug your people, folks. A good freind's son had a skateboarding accident last night and is in critical condition this morning. The outlook isn't good. Take some time to be nice to each other today as life is often too short.

  2. Going to the game tonight with my dad. We'll be in the right field porch. Never been out there. I've always done the infield except my first game which was in the left field bleachers (when they were still bleachers).
