Guys, we ain't getting anybody. If we do, it'll be a Liriano-esque trade. Prepare yourself for a big nothing burger. And we'll continue to scrap by for the back end of our rotation and hope we can win a World Series that way somehow.

Phone just buzzed with an update on Whitley's performance last night and I thought it was a trade

I'm fine with no moves if the Yankees and dodgers do nothing also

I fully expect us to make some minor move for a guy that was in none of these tweets for the past few days.

Except we knew LMJ was out all year and we knew Morton is nails.

Ok. I'm out of here until about 1:30.

I said Ray or Greinke last night. I'm sticking with that. Ray first, Greinke second. For Kemp, Fisher, Guduan and one of Armenteros/Valdez.

I leave you Kate. She is currently helping Lunhow in the office.

Imagine if LMJ didn't have to miss the entire season and Forrest Whitley played well enough to be called up this season.

Wow that looks nothing like her
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

So will any executives have any balls to make a major move?

Whelp it's over. We will get absolutely nobody, and we absolutely won't win a World Series.

We can win a WS without any additions but it just won't be as probable. We are one of the 3 favorites to win it all. Gotta maximize our chances now.

Expecting a Wheeler to the Stros annoucement soon.

We have literally never won a World Series where we didn't make a last minute acquisition.

What would wheeler cost being he's a rental? Kemp and a mid level prospect??

Just to be clear, I knew you were being purposely obtuse in your first post.

Sounds more like teams are lowering their expectations and now settling with a potential deal for a mediocre player.

That's what it should cost but with it buying a seller's market it may have to be a few mid level prospects + Kemp.

We've missed the ultimate goal making deadline deals far more than we haven't.

I don't consider Wheeler to be mediocre.

Highlight video of Wheeler striking out 7 Pirates.

Good Athletic ($) article on what Wheeler gives you.

Summary: He's got a high velocity four seamer (third among starters behind Thor and Cole). High velocity slider (2nd among starters). Also has a hard curveball with good depth, change up, and rarely throws a splitter. Possible room for improvement on how he deploys his slider and curve. His curve has been outstanding all season. He goes deep in games - 7th in innings per start.

My take: this guy would be great to eat up innings down the stretch and could improve with our analytics. He's got the stuff for the Stros to help him take it to the next level.

My gut tell me we go after Robbie Ray. He's controllable and gives us insurance for next year knowing already we likely lose several arms on the pitching staff.

I feel like the one trade deadline deal is being a player in driving up prices as well. It's capitalism at it's finest.

The players have said they want more parity in the league, well, this is one way to do it. Have one trade deadline and make it early enough in the year where multiple teams feel they're still in the race.
