Big pickup for the Braves. Last week I thought he was going to the Dodgers.
Me being a cubs fan loves to see this. Theo is trying rebuild that team from the ground up
Huge pickup, the only concerning thing are his lifetime numbers at Turner Field (0-8, 4.77 ERA).
He has been the best pitcher baseball this season with just zero run support from the cubbies when he pitches.
Maturity is a bitter disappointment for which no remedy exists, unless laughter can be said to remedy anything. -- Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
Delgado is a good pitcher.

He's good, could be great. But getting Dempster/keeping him away from Wild Card competition is huge imo. Not sure we can resign him, and if he goes back to chicago it would kinda suck, but this was needed imo
I am a Braves fan but no way in this world do I give up Randall Delgado for a 10 game rental. Delgado had moved up as the top pitching prospect after Teheran's struggles and Vizcaino's injury.
Yes he is. Frankly even though he's a lefty I'd rather them trade Minor than Delgado. Minor seems to always have that 1 blow-up inning that kills each of his starts.
No question I would rather trade Minor. Delgado has a significantly higher ceiling and may be a #1 starter in time.
Cubs would not take Minor in the deal. It had to be Delgado or Julio Tehran. So you tell me which is better? Exactly. Delgado 100000 times.
Great Pick Up....but I'm still waiting for the final FINAL word this has gone through.
Like I just posted - waiting on this to be final and darnit....looks like it may not go through? There are tweets it may be off? And over 40mins ago Demptser tweeted there is no deal - he doesn't know where this is coming from????
I would trade Teheran before Delgado. Teheran has regressed over the past year.
Edit: But to clarify, I wouldn't trade either one of them for a 12 game rental of Ryan Dempster.

Dempster has had stretches like this before but can't sustain for a whole season. Delgado is a top tier prospect. If we trade him at all we should at least get more than 2 months of dempster. Hate this trade

I appreciate the insight from you guys. I don't follow as closely as I want to so its cool to hear y'alls take.
Thanks for posting this. Definitely did not intend to shoot the messenger with my comments.
I just hate that we didn't sell high on JJ last year(?) when he had that ridiculous first half and it was possible to get some value out of him.
Here's the deal. Yeah, it's a 2 month rental. But we are trying to win the World Series. With RD, we've got a shot. Without him, no shot.
Have to have a guy like him in the post season.
