Morning News and Notes for Thursday Tyler Flowers Jersey , October 25, 2018"Boston 4-Los Angeles 2Three-run fifth enough for Boston to take Game 2 in Boston.es baby gender in the most epic way - News 5 Cleveland - Edwin Encarnacion is excited about being a father.Jack Graney, Cleveland Indians radio broadcast pioneer, named Ford C. Frick Award finalist for baseball Hall of Fame | cleveland.com - Legendary Indians radio broadcaster Jack Graney is among the nominees for this year's Ford C. Frick Award from the National Baseball Hall of Fame.List of Indians' own options for center field | Indians.com - Who will be the Indians' centerfielder in 2019?New age of Indians led by Jones, Bradley | MiLB.com News - The Cleveland Indians' success at the Major League level can be largely attributed to their Minor League affiliates, which were dotted by All-Star-worthy prospects this season.Around BaseballTACOS!Rays land 16-year-old Cuban pitching prospectYadier Molina wins Roberto Clemente AwardFBI looking at MLB foreign player recruitment practices The Milwaukee Brewers got to the doorstep of the Fall Classic in October, pushing the Los Angeles Dodgers to Game 7 of the National League Championship Series.Their starting pitchers, however http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-markakis-jersey , ranked seventh in the Senior Circuit and 11th overall with a 3.92 ERA and lack a bona fide ace. Bumgarner would fill that role and could help push Milwaukee even deeper into October.To land him, the Brew Crew would need to surrender toolsy outfielder Corey Ray (27 home runs and 37 steals at Double-A) and probably second baseman Keston Hiura (.293 average, 13 home runs and 15 steals in High-A and Double-A).Considering how close they got to the promised land in '18, it might be worth gutting the top tier of the farm system for a hurler of Bumgarner's skill and reputation.Houston Astros3 of 5Rob Carr/Getty ImagesThe Houston Astros failed to repeat as world champions in 2018. Left-hander Dallas Keuchel will test free agency and could sign elsewhere. The stage is set for the 'Stros to add a southpaw.Sure, they've got right-handers Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole under contract and don't need to acquire another top arm. A catcher and bullpen depth might be higher priorities.But picture Bumgarner plying his trade in Houston. How much scarier would the Astros be with one of the best postseason gunslingers of his generation taking the ball every fifth day?The Giants would surely inquire about outfielder Kyle Tucker and right-hander Forrest Whitley. The 'Stros shouldn't give up either elite prospect for a one-year rental and could counter with a package built around powerful Cuban Yordan Alvarez, who hit 20 homers with a .904 OPS in 88 games in Double-A and Triple-A, plus an ancillary piece such as hard-throwing lefty Cionel Perez.Atlanta Braves4 of 5Julio Cortez/Associated PressThe Atlanta Braves blossomed ahead of schedule and won the National League East in 2018. They're young, they're hungry Phil Niekro Jersey , and they're on the rise.A native of Hickory, North Carolina, Bumgarner could return to his southern roots with Atlanta and would bring invaluable experience to a youthful roster.The Braves aren't going to listen to requests for any of their top MLB-level stars such as Ozzie Albies or Ronald Acuna Jr.But right-hander Ian Anderson (2.49 ERA and 142 strikeouts in 119.1 innings in High-A and Double-A) and high-upside 19-year-old outfielder Drew Waters (.293 average and 23 steals in Single-A and High-A) might be enough to tempt San Francisco and transform Atlanta from intriguing upstart to genuine title contender.New York Yankees5 of 5Julio Cortez/Associated PressThe New York Yankees need starting pitching. In their American League Division Series loss to the Boston Red Sox, no Yankees starter threw more than five innings, and other than Masahiro Tanaka, no starter recorded more than nine outs.Despite setting a single-season record for team home runs (267), the Yanks were sitting at home when the Red Sox won the pennant and then bathed in World Series champagne.That simply won't do in the Bronx.New York could spend on the free-agent market and sign an ace such as Corbin. Or it could pick up the phone and call San Francisco.If the Giants are listening, the Yankees could put together a package built on left-hander Justus Sheffield and right-hander Domingo Acevedo. It would be a steep price to pay. Sheffield was largely dominant in Double-A and Triple-A in 2018 and made his big league debut. Acevedo needs more polish http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-markakis-jersey , but his fastball touches triple digits.Bumgarner, however, is the postseason horse the Yankees lacked last season. Tether him to that offense, and look out. All statistics courtesy of Baseball-Reference and FanGraphs.
